2016 SDCC EXCLUSIVE Wonder Woman Barbie and other dolls

USA Today has just published the 2016 SDCC Exclusive toys by Mattel and, of course, two of them have caught my attention.

First is a GORGEOUS SDCC Wonder Woman Barbie doll.

The Amazon Princess Wonder Woman Barbie ($80) is based on Gal Gadot’s superheroine in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

I just can’t… She is freaking fabulous! OMG!! That hair! Why does she have to be an exclusive? *cries*

Then we have She-Ra! Technically she’s not a Barbie but she’s 11 inch.

She has the power! An 11-inch She-Ra action figure ($75) will bring back lots of good memories for those who watched her cartoon in the ’80s.

I’m so excitied by this one but I need to see IRL images. So far not crazy about her body but her face looks beautiful. Maybe you can put the head on a Barbie body? I hope so.

And here are the rest.

All of them will be available for preorder beginning June 17 at MattyCollector.com. Gosh. I hope I’ll be able to get at least one of them.

The 2016 Italian Doll Convention part 2

Yes, i know I’m late to the party, but… Well, I have no excuse. I hope you’ll excuse me for this and enjoy the article.

After the Fashion Show ended we went straight to the cocktail party and sipped some champagne and enjoyed some fresh sea food apetizers. Really yummy! We mingled and waited for the Gala Dinner as everybody was getting more and more anctious to see the convention doll.

Soon after we were welcomed in the ballroom that looked so chic and festive. This year they completley change the set up and in the middle of the room there was a catwalk so that everybody could see Mario and Gianni when they did their presentations. Such a good idea!

My table host was, as always, my lovely Monica and lots of gifts were waiting for us. She made us some very cute dolls in mod fashions. I got the Asian one. :X There also was a beautiful centerpice made by Magia 2000 themselves.

The Gala Dinner wa sa lot of fun. We had Liza Minelli and Marylin Monroe visit us and we also the ladies from Dynamo Camp on stage as they received a check for 20,000 euros from the ebay charity. I have to admit the small clip that presented their camp and their work really touched me and that’s why I wasn’t prepared for the moment when Mario announced that Rogier and I won the Special IDC award for our blogs. OMG! I was floored. I really was. I know there’s a lot of controversy around me and there are people that, let’s just say, don’t like me, so I honestly was not expecting this.

Me smiling like an idiot. :))

Lorena Neri from Cats’n’Dolls Creations also got an award for her work. Congrats!!! You deserved it.

The last, but not the least, award of the night was for the Fashion Show. My darling Monica won the famale one for her great Curvy Fashionistas impersonation. :X

And then… The convention doll was presented. Sorry for the crappy video, but that’s all I could film. I do need to get a decent camera next convention so I can properly film and take pictures.

The night ended with a SUPER fun dance party. We could have danced the entire night but the rooms had to prepared for the Sales Room the next morning so at around 2 o’clock we went to bed.

The next morning I woke up early, packed my bags and went straight down to the Sales Room. I did a live video on Facebook about it so check it out below.

As always there were a lot of great deals and lots of OOAK artists. Below is a HUGE gallery of images that I hope you’ll enjoy. After I took the images I went straight to the airport as it was time to go back home. Can’t wait for the 2017 IDC especially because the theme is so much fun: IDC Goes Wedding. :)) I’m so bringing my wedding dress with me. Hahaha!

The 2016 Look Barbie dolls are starting to show up in stores and here are some IRL images via Instagram user only_love_barbie. I do wish they would have kept the Steffie facemold on the Boho girl, but she is cute none the less.

New articulated curvy Barbie body?

The Barbie Style Instagram account just published this image that shows a very beautiful AA curvy articulated body? Could this mean we we’ll be getting it in the next wave of Fashionistas? Maybe even a tall and a petite articulated body?


Brunch time! Tag your bestie.šŸ’› #barbie #barbiestyle

As I mentioned on my page, I think Mattel is putting more effort in the playline series than in the collector one. Such a shame…

Ravenna the Evil Queen OOAK Barbie doll by Ninamorgue

The Huntsman: Winter’s War is soon going to be released so Spanish artist Nimarogue has created this absolutely incredible Ravenna OOAK Barbie doll. Those details!! OMG! I just can’t…

Ravenna the Evil Queen

Ravenna the Evil Queen2

Ready for the takeover of the kingdom through the magic mirror, she’s a wicked vision of golden opulence. Wearing a re-creation of the costume seen in the movie designed by three times Academy Award Collen Atwood, this devourer of souls played by talented Charlize Theron is as power hungry as she is evil. Iconic collar feathered cape, pointed golden crown and braided updo style her dramatic regal attire to make sure she’s the fairest of them all

When I’m writing this article she is still available for sale so hurry up if you want her! Check out his page HERE.

2016 Portuguese Doll Convention eBay Charity Dolls

2016 Portuguese Doll Convention has ended but the ebay Charity Auction has just started. Take a look at the links below and bid bid bid for these beauties as all the money will go the wonderful SOS Children’s Village charity.

Btw, I do love the fact that Mattel has started donating prototypes to these charities. Prototypes are so important to a lot of collectors so it’s so much fun that you can win such a doll and also contribute to a good cause.
