Magia 2000 has just published on their Facebook page a new stunning OOAK Barbie doll called Oriental Blue Lagoon.
This is one of the most stunning oriental inspired dolls I have ever seen. Her head piece is so delicate yet complicated but what I really love is her yellow makeup. Such an unusual color for a makeup yet it looks amazing and matches perfectly her fashion. Whomever will own this doll will be one lucky collector.

Yes! She’s perfect! I’ve seen the Venetian Muse™ Barbie® Doll in IRL images from the National Barbie convention and now Mattel has released her promo pictures and she’s just as gorgeous. For me she has got to be the best doll this year. At least so far.
I’ve been waiting for this doll ever since last year when I attended the Paris Fashion Doll Festival and I met Linda Kyaw. At that time she told me she was working on the second doll from the Global Glamour collection and that doll was inspired by something from Europe. I told her she has to make her articulated because a lot of people want articulation in their dolls and I think she took my advice. Anyway this girl is just amazing! She’ll be available on September 2nd and her price is $100.

The second convention is the Madrid Fashion Doll Show that I will be attending. I was supposed to attend it last year also but some personal family problems prevented me from attending. But this year not only I will be there but I’ll also be a table host.
I don’t have yet the full list of people that will be at my table but if you are also going and want to sit with me please leave a comment here and I’ll see if I have room for you.
Can’t wait to go to Madrid next month and also attend the special Jamie Show presentation. There will be two exclusive dolls unveiled at this presentation so it will be a lot of fun.
Stay tuned for more info in the following days!

Yesterday was an AMAZING day for all of us Barbie collectors. Tons and tons of amazing new collector Barbie dolls were unveiled at the National Barbie Convention. Here they are:
Mistress of The Manor Barbie doll from the Hauted Series
Via Shannon Elizabeth/The Doll Cafe
I love her! So fierce, so elegant and quite frigtening. Can’t wait for her to be available.
Venetian Masquarade Barbie doll from the Global Glamour series
Via Life in Plastic
OMG! Linda has outdone herself. This girl is beautiful. I’ve waited for her for a long time now. If you remember she is a variation of the sketch Linda Kyaw donated to the Madrid Fashion Doll Show 2013 and of the OOAK doll she donated for last year’s IDC.
The 3rd doll from the series was also sneaked as a beautiful sketch.
Via Life in Plastic
I do wish that it was another country (maybe Romania? ) but I bet she’ll be beautiful.
And here’s an IRL image of the Double Date Barbie set I told you about.
Last but not least we have info about a new series by Bill Greening: Willows Wi.
Woa… That was a lot of info. Are you just as excited about these dolls as I am?
