One of the things I'd heard about Integrity Toys convention is: do not miss the W Club luncheon. I'm so glad I didn't!
All attendees (and there were a lot!) had the opportunity to purchase the lovely centerpiece doll, Escapism Elise Jolie, a new FR: Squared doll. Dressed in a lovely chiffon polkadot gown with an oversized flower detail, empire waist, and train, she comes complete with the fabulous accessories we come to expect from this higher end doll line.
Guests were each treated to a three-pack of FR: Squared shoes as well, when we were seated for our meal, which I also enjoyed. (We ate a lot of chicken during convention, which I can understand--this was on a bed of angel hair pasta, with avocado, tomato and cheese baked over the top.)
In front of each place setting there was an envelope in which we were to order the centerpiece doll, a "mystery doll," or both. The Mystery Doll turned out to be Victorie Roux, who has returned from a lovely tropical vacation on Saint Tropez. We've heard there may be more exploration for her from other fashion eras, as well.
Also in store for next year: Funny Face! The older Vero sculpt will be used on a Poppy body to bring this Paramount classic to plastic. The promo photos look delicious, but no photography was permitted.
