So, so many dolls at this convention. I don’t know where to start. With the convention collection? The centerpieces? The new and updated Nu.Face? I think instead of posting all the pictures of every doll, I’ll just post my favourites here. I’ll limit myself to ten dolls, but we’ll see if there won’t be more. (If you want to see promo pictures of all the dolls, head over to Stratos’ blog, fashiondollchronicles.blogspot.com)
Let’s start with the convention doll – a stunning Agnes. A very typical look for her, but the colour palette softens her looks a bit. Beautiful dress as well, it was inspired by Jason Wu’s current winter collection.
Intimate Reveal Agnes Von Weiss
Next up an Elise, again in a Jason Wu outfit. She was a centerpiece doll, and while she is beautiful, I think Agnes looks better – Elise’s make-up is kind of hard, with that strong eyeliner and eyebrows and her otherwise very pale colours.
Intrigue Elise Jolie
Onto the Nu.Face. This line has been relaunched, very successfully I think! I nearly included all of the 4 dolls, but then I thought three will do as well. The first one is Giselle. Again, soft make-up and an edgy outfit. Those socks with those boots! So good.
Sensuous Affair Giselle Diefendorf
Erin retured with a new sculpt and some 70s disco vibe. She was a Wclub Luncheon Giveaway doll and is redy to party. Her outfit is a bit basic, but her make-up is gorgeous.
Chrome Noir Erin Salston
Ayumi has a new sculpt as well – she looks much more Asian now, which is great. All in all a very beautiful doll, very soft, but with a slight edge. I think she is my favourite from the Nu.Face – She looks like she has the most personality.
Evening Siren Ayumi N.
After some very serious dolls, all in dark colours, what about some fresh, vibrant ones? The first centerpiece doll was a Vanessa, and she is stunning. Again very 70s (I mean, looks at her hair!), but so… refreshing and seemingly bursting with energy. She is in the top 3 of my favourites list.
Sheer Sensuality Vanessa Perrin
The gift doll from that dinner was an Adele. Her darkest skintone, paired with the white suit is so edgy. The fur wrap is a bit out of place, but otherwise – great job. She is so fierce.
Le Smoking Adele Makeda
Of course, there were also multiple Poppies, but none of them is as pretty as Starlight – most had outfits that are not my type at all. But this one – she’s perfect. Her hair, her make-up, her outfit (her tights!), everything looks so good together.
Starlight Poppy Parker
There was also an FR16, Hanne Erikson. I’m not the biggest fan of her sculpt, but this is the best version of her yet. Very sensuous, very sexy… Normally, I don’t like tan together with blond, but on her, it works. And generally, the bigger dolls are slowly winning my heart, in fact I have a FR16 on my radar right now…Let’s see what will happen and if she ends up at my home!
Afterhours Hanne Erikson
And the last doll I chose (yes, only ten!) is the Welcome Doll. She does not have a name, but uses the old Erin sculpt and wears a nude jumpsuit togther with a cool (fake-) fur jacket. And a hat! I only have the full shot of her, but one can see that she’s beautiful.
So, now what is my overall favourite doll from the Convention? I must say, I found the ones that were not a part of the Convention Collection way better than the ones from the actual Collection… Anyways, it’s really hard to decide. My top three are Vanessa, Agnes and Erin… or Ayumi? Hmmm, difficult. But I think the one I’d love to get most would be Agnes, even though she reminds me of older version of herself. I think the doll that represents the whole Convention best is Vanessa, because there were a lot of colourful, 70s inspired dolls – they are just not included here, because they aren’t really my thing. But let’s just say Agnes is my favourite and end this post! :)
