IFDC Integrity Toys Convention dolls - Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary collection

As many had already surmised, the W Club Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary doll was only the first in this year's celebratory collection. For the 2014 IFDC souvenir dolls Integrity Toys made three individually distinctive dolls, retro and glam in style (to match the convention theme), but with a modern edge. These Poppy dolls début a new eye screening and for the first time, they have high-heeled feet, answering a demand made by many collectors frustrated with the ankle joint of the original Poppy body. The bust, torso and arms are the same as the regular Poppy Parker body. The feet on this body are compatible with DG shoes. Not all future Poppy Parker dolls will have this hybrid body; this is only for the 5th anniversary dolls. From what I learned, they were sold out in the convention. W Club also secured a few for their members through a lottery for right to buy.

Item # PP072
IT Girl Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary Collection
2014 IFDC Convention Companion Doll
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 USD


Doll Tech Specs:
Body Type: Poppy Parker Hybrid (w/ High-heeled Foot)
Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker 
Quick Switch Feature: No 
Skin Tone: FR White 
Hair Color: Redhead 
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied 


Poppy is wearing a light aqua ensemble, accessorized with light silver and aqua earrings, cuff bracelet and ring. A satin clutch, aqua metal sunglasses, and matching closed toe leather platform pumps finish off this look. Poppy's vibrant red hair is in a pompadour with curled ponytail. 12-inch articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair. Doll stand included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.


I think this one is the best of the three - great make up and hair style, interesting outfit and beautiful accessories. The glasses are just like the Royaltini FR ones. Her hair style is a duplicate of Eugenia A Touch Of  Frost 2013 W Club doll.



Item # PP073
Evening Ingenue
Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary Collection
2014 IFDC IT DIRECT Exclusive
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 USD


Doll Tech Specs:
Body Type: Poppy Parker Hybrid (w/ High-heeled Foot)
Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker 
Quick Switch Feature: No 
Skin Tone: FR White 
Hair Color: Blond
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied


Poppy Parker is wearing a floor length strapless coral and black dress, accessorized with black chrome earrings, necklace and bracelet. A black satin clutch, black patent leather belt and platform sandals complete her ensemble. Her blonde hair is in a half up and half down style. 12-inch articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair. Doll stand included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.


The dress on this one is a dead ringer for the FR2 versions of Vanessa and Veronique (in their original sculpts) a few years ago. From the convention photos of the real doll I saw, the pleats are a bit more shaped and rigid. I do not like her make up at all.


Item # PP074
Glamorous Darling
Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary Collection 
2014 IFDC Convention Exclusive Doll
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls
Suggested Retail Price: $175.00 USD


Doll Tech Specs:
Body Type: Poppy Parker Hybrid (w/ High-heeled Foot)
Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: FR White
Hair Color: Brunette 
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand-Applied


Poppy is in a gorgeous lilac gown accessorized with lilac and silver earrings, bracelet and ring. A purple satin clutch and lilac patent leather platform pumps complete the ensemble. Her dark brunette and black hair is in a side swept style. 12-inch articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair. Doll stand included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up.


I love the hairstyle on this one. Beautiful doll but a bit Barbie looking. The bracelet  is the same as Bittersweet Eugenia's from the 2013 IT convention. The clutch seems dark in the first photo but much brighter in the last one (which probably shows the correct shade).

JAMIEshow IFDC Exclusive Marlena BJD resin doll

As you might have been informed, the IFDC doll show is up and running in Las Vegas this weekend (started Wednesday). JAMIEshow, having entered the rarefied world of retro Hollywood glamour with Gene Marshall, decided to offer as a limited edition (50 pieces) at IFDC this amazing Marlene Dietrich doll. They call her Marlena probably for copyright reasons.


The doll is a resin BJD, probably has the same body as Gene, and wears a 3-piece satin tuxedo suit complete with a top hat and black pumps. She has pale blue eyes, dark red lips and comes with a blonde curled JAMIEshow rooted wig cap. Stand included. Price: $475.





The only other Marlene Dietrich doll I know of  (and have) is the Madame Alexander one. This one is way better (and gives me an idea about what to do with my MA doll).

IFDC 2013: Integrity convention dolls



The International Fashion Doll Convention (IFDC), one of the major doll shows in the calendar is held annually, organised by Jim Faraone and this year's theme was Horror High Vegas! So one can imagine the Goth feast it was. Integrity Toys once again designed and produced the convention doll, the souvenir doll and also had another doll for sale there. The first two dolls were unveiled on the last night of the convention in Las Vegas on July 6th. All dolls fall under the Nu Fantasy category. Let's check them out.

Item #91320
Glam Vamp Horror High Vegas!!!
2013 IFDC Exclusive Convention Doll
Suggested Retail Price: $175.00 US
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls Estimated
Ship Date: Last week of July 2013


Collection: Nu.Fantasy™
Head Sculpt: Anja™
Body Type: Fashion Royalty®
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: FR White
Hair Colour: Raven
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand Applied
Total Packaged Dimensions: Approximately 9.5" X 15" X 3.25"


Glam Vamp is this year's IFDC official convention doll. She has deep raven fully rooted  hair, ruby red lips and hand applied eyelashes. Her long, ultra fitted black gown has dark glittery stones on the bodice and a side slit.  Glam Vamp completes her look with a set of luxurious jewels, black fishnet hosiery and a pair of unique "bat wing" open-toe pumps! A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up only.


Anja looks really sultry and vampy here. She reminds me a lot of the first "new" version of Vero with raven hair, which is the basic reason I am not trying to get this one. I love the dress and accessories but not enough to want to get her. Best feature about her is the eye make up and the shoes. For this price I would have expected a more elaborate outfit plus better earrings and perhaps a ring as well.


Item #91322
Blood Lines Horror High Vegas!!!
2013 IFDC Exclusive Companion Doll
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls


Collection: Nu.Fantasy™
Head Sculpt: Tatiana™ (V 1.0)
Body Type: Fashion Royalty®
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: Japan
Hair Colour: Jet Black with White Streaks
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand Applied
Total Packaged Dimensions: Approximately 9.5" X 15" X 3.25"


Blood Lines is a 12-inch articulated vinyl doll with fully rooted jet-black hair with contrasting white streaks and hand-applied eyelashes. She is wearing an ultra-form fitted gown with black vertical ruffles, accessorized with an extravagant twisted snake necklace and matching stud earrings. She has white pumps with black lace overlay. A doll is stand included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up only.


This one is easily the best of the bunch, and the one I am trying to get. The necklace is a bit much but it fits the theme perfectly. She is perfection throughout.


Item #91321
Dark Fable Horror High Vegas!!!
2013 IFDC IT DIRECT Exclusive Doll
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls


Collection: Nu.Fantasy™
Head Sculpt: Imogen™
Body Type: Fashion Royalty®
Quick Switch Feature: No
Skin Tone: FR White
Hair Colour: Duo-Toned Black and Red
Eyelashes: Yes, Hand Applied
Total Packaged Dimensions: Approximately 9.5" X 15" X 3.25"


Dark Fable is a 12-inch articulated vinyl doll with full rooted, intricately styled duo-toned hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She is dressed in a two-piece ensemble that consists of a lace overlay top with bell bottom sleeves over a black mermaid-style skirt with lots of rows of ruffles. Her accessories include a brooch, heart-shaped ring, stud earrings and black closed-toe pumps, with a blood splatter print. A doll stand is included. For adult collectors ages 14 and up only.


This is the most Goth-like of the three and the one I liked least. The Imogen sculpt looks gorgeous as usual and I love her screening but the hair and the outfit are not my cup of tea. The brooch and ring are stand outs. The shoes look like they came out of Cruella De Vil's closet.

IFDC 2012 Integrity official dolls - Shock, Rattle & Roll

IFDC in Las Vegas is one of the major doll conventions every year. Even more so in 2012 and their 10 year anniversary with the Shock, Rattle and Roll theme. Collectors eagerly anticipate the official dolls that are part of the convention or the exclusives revealed there from doll companies.


Integrity did again the official convention doll this year, as well as the souvenir companion one, plus they had one more doll as an exclusive. Each doll in this mini-collection has the Integrity Toys/Vampire body. Here are their official photos and descriptions:

Item #15017
Long Cool Woman
Shock, Rattle 'N' Roll Collection
IFDC 10th Anniversary Souvenir Convention Doll

Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US

Limited Edition of 300 Dolls



"Long Cool Woman" is sleek, sexy and definitely Rock 'N Roll! Designed to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the International Fashion Doll Convention (IFDC), this gorgeous goddess of the music stage is ready to rock your collection down to its foundations! Long Cool Woman is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with hand-applied eyelashes and fully rooted hair. She comes dressed in a long dramatic rock frock completed by black pumps and jewelry. The doll stand is included. Long Cool Woman was given away as the convention souvenir doll to guests who attended the 2012 IFDC Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.


She has the Kesenia mold, in a tan body and looks superb. I love the accessories and the outfit looks like something Stevie Nicks would have worn in the 70s. She looks more and more like the old Vanessa mold with each incarnation of hers.



Item #15018
Shake It Up
Shock, Rattle 'N' Roll Collection
IFDC 10th Anniversary Companion Doll
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls


Ready to be shaken? Well, shake it up! Introducing "Shake It Up", this year's IFDC companion doll! With her sultry looks and legs that won't quit, this girl is ready to tour with her favorite rock band and sing a little Rock 'n Roll of her own! Shake It Up is a 12"-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with long rooted hair and applied eyelashes. She comes dressed in a totally retro rock ¾ sleeve mini-dress and includes edgy "chrome" shoes and jewelry. The doll stand is included. Shake It Up was the companion doll available for purchase to guests who attended the 2012 IFDC Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.


The companion doll is the Korrine sculpt - like Kesenia, she comes in a totally different skin tone than the one we have seen her so far and looks much prettier too. She reminds me of a young Debbie Harry. From the real life photos of attendees I have seen on-line, she is much prettier in real life.



Item #15019
Rock Me, Baby
Shock, Rattle 'N' Roll Collection
IFDC 10th Anniversary IT Direct Salesroom Doll
Suggested Retail Price: $150.00 US
Limited Edition of 300 Dolls




Put your rock 'n roll on and ROCK ME, BABY! Introducing this year's IT Direct Exclusive for IFDC! This girl means business and she won't take "no" for an answer. She's the leader of the pack, she's got attitude and she knows how to flaunt it! Rock Me Baby is a 12"-inch fully articulated vinyl doll with long rooted hair and applied eyelashes. She comes dressed in a two piece rock 'n roll suit and comes with edgy "chrome" purple and black shoes and jewelry. The doll stand is included. Rock Me, Baby was the IT Direct Exclusive doll available for purchase to guests who attended the 2012 IFDC Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.


This one has the Rayna sculpt and looks gorgeous. She gives out a Joan Jett - Lita Ford vibe. Her face reminds me a lot of Anna Paquin as Sookie in True Blood (if she would only dress like that!). A very beautiful doll.



Lovely and very hard to find dolls. W Club member have a lottery going on for a few of the dolls. The only other option would be in the secondary market and I bet prices will sky rocket as they are quite limited.
