The Captain OOAK Doll by Ninamorgue

Nimamorgue is the designer team behind the companion doll from the Coleccionistas de Barbie en España “Fabulous 40’s” convention and they have just released another OOAK doll (SOLD) that is just amazing.

Formally dressed in white head-to-toe, this glamorous lady is here to rule the ship classy and stylishly in her Captain attire. Featuring gold-buttoned pencil skirt, ruffled blouse and dramatic length-floor jacket lined in vibrant gold, not forgetting to mention her fabulous Captain hat adorning her perfect platinum hair-do. Anchor-motif tattoos decorate her forearms while Pin-Up inspired face paint, golden seahorse earrings and retro spyglass add the final touches.

New Fashionistas Barbie dolls: Pretty Popsicles Doll & Pink Tulle Skirt Doll?

Ok… So I’m a bit skeptical. A collector friend (Dannii Saumane‎) posted on The Doll Cafe forum about two new Fashionistas dolls that have popped up on Amazon. Pretty Popsicles Doll & Pink Tulle Skirt Doll. The problem is they promo images look very messy. Are they real? Click the name of the dolls to go to their pages. I have done some print screens of the pages just in case it turns out they are not real.

Convention doll and extra doll at the 2016 Convención National de Coleccionista en España

This weekend the 2016 Convención National de Coleccionista en España has taken place. It’s the second convention in Spain and the 4th European convention from this year. There is just one left, the Roma Fashion Doll Convention that will take place next month.

This year’s theme was the Fabulous 40’s and two convention dolls were received by conventioneers. Just like MFDS, one of the dolls was an extra doll and it was not included in the basic convention package. This year the extra doll was designed by duo Ninamorgue, the amazing designers behind the The Huntsman Winter’s War: Ravenna OOAK doll that you saw this spring at IDC.

Her name is Lady Navy.

The convention doll donated by Mattel was a Platinum version of the first Classic Black Dress Silkstone. This one has a lighter hair and skin tone and a different makeup.
