There’s again a survey online (that I can’t take because I live in Romania) that has some of the new 2016 Barbie dolls and I managed to get my hands on two images of the new 2016 Made to Move Barbie dolls. I don’t have the direct link to the survey but I’ll update the post as soon as I have it.
Love, love, love them! That blond taned one is a dream. <3
There was also an image of a basic Day to Night Barbie doll from the Style series. Not impressed with her at all.
Bookmark this article because I’ll be updating it with new images as soon as I get them.
I’m not a Monster High collector but I have several friends that are and they all are very angry at Mattel for changing the entire look of one of their most popular lines. Yes, Monster High is getting a reboot in 2016 with a brand new sweeter face, a new packaging and new… Well kind of everything.
Here is the official (I think?) video that announces these changes.
As I already mentioned I’m not a collector so I can’t really have a very objective oppinion so I would love to hear yours.
The registration for the 2016 RFDC has started! The convention will take place between 19th and 20th of November 2016. If you pay before February 29th 2016 the fee is just 100 euros. After this date it will be 120 euros. Still a very good price for a great convention and an exclusive Silktone Barbie doll.
Just in time for Christmas, BC has put up 2 new sneaks. You know how this goes. I can’t post the images, but you are free to search them online. I’m just going to describe the dolls and let you know how I feel about them.
Soda Shop Barbie Doll (DGX89)
Designer: Bill Greening
Label: Gold (Q1 BFC only)
Body Type: Vintage with Holes in Feet
Face Sculpt: Vintage straight rooting line
Release: Early 2016 – TBD
Very cute doll that’s wearing a pink dress and a polka dot white and black blouse with puffy sleeves. Her accesories include a gold broche, a transparent tote, a glas with an ice cream soda, two spoons and an uderplate. The bottom part of her dress is identical to the Nifty 50s Barbie Doll. She has also a pair of black open toe sandals and a pink ribbon on her head.
Very cute girl. I actually like her more than Cherry Pie Picnic Barbie doll but still she’s not for me.
Barbie® Fashion Model Collection Black and White Doll (DGW59)
Designer: Carlyle Nuera
Face Sculpt: Generation Girl Mari
Body Type: Model Muse
Release: Spring 2016
Love, love, love this girl!!! Carlyle did an amazing job and I’m so gratefull he used a facemold that hasn’t been used in a while. You can read more about the Generation Girl Mari mold on Kattis’ website. I love her think eyebrows and her beauty mark. Actually she does remind me of the Madrid Fashion Doll Show OOAK dolls he created back in September. She has the same vibe with her sleek and simple low ponytail and moder simple makeup. I’m the kind of collector that likes over the top styles but this girl is just perfect the way she is. Her dress has white and black stripes, soft ruffles and she’s also wearing long black gloves. I’m so going to fight for this girl!
The last collection of 2015 by Magia 2000 is a beautiful and intricate X-Mas collection that takes my breath away! Some dolls have already sold on ebay but others are available on their website. Click on the names of the dolls to go to their pages and see more details.
On October 28th the official exhibtion “Barbie – The Icon” opened it’s gates at the Mudec Museo delle Culture of Milan. Mario and Gianni from Magia 2000 took part in the organization of this expo and also were the designers of the official dolls of the expo.
The Ava DuVernay Barbie doll will be released tomorrow on TheBarbieCollection.com according to the Barbie Instagram account. Earlier this year we got to see an OOAK version of this doll and the production doll is not very different.
All they did is change her head and make it more…glam. Why? I have no idea. I thought she was supposed to embody a real woman that inspires other women and girls? So why make her glam? Glam is good, but I think they should have made her resemble more Ava’s quiet and elegant chic.
I know I’m a bit late but now I can finally sit down at my computer and write about my trip to the 2015 Roma Fashion Doll Convention. As you may know already, this was the very first convention organized by Alessandro and Giuseppe from Artist Creations. I just could not pass the opportunity to go to the last doll convention from 2015 and here I was sitting on a plane and waiting to land in Rome.
The convention took place at a lovely hotel that I’m definetly going to book next time I’ll visit Rome. The name of the hotel is Barceló Aran Mantegna and it’s a 4 star modern hotel. The rooms are big and very elegant and the food is AMAZING! Loved their offer for breakfast and the buffet at the gala dinner was so delicious. I highly recommend it.
After I checked in I took a short nap and went down to the lobby to meet everybody and go out to dinner at a nearby pizza place. In the lobby I chatted with Corinne Thorner and her super funny husband and, after that, off we went. The small pizzeria was lovely and I had a fun night. We chatted about Barbie (duh) and the upcoming sale of the Warhol Barbie doll and we ate LOTS of food, of course. When I went to bed, well after midnight, I was exhausted and fell asleep in an instant.
In the morning I first went to register and then I quickly grabbed breakfast. This convention had a 2 day sales room and I just couldn’t miss going to see what dolls were up for sale. Read more
