Chip makes his debut in this giftset which depicts a prom scene. I don't
collect male dolls anymore but I had to order this set to see this
long-awaited guy. He comes dressed in a white dinner jacket and black
slacks with suspenders. His shoes are very cool. If only there were a
substitute for hooks and eyes. The shirt collar would lay flat and look
better. Alas, no one is coming up with anything short of sewing the
fashion onto the doll. And we don't want that.
What happened to his hair? There's a giant flap of glued hair sticking up. I don't think it's supposed to be this way.
Poppy's outfit is not my taste - neither the color nor the drapery valance skirt appeals to me. The artificial flower at her waist cheapens the outfit. I thought it was interesting that she came already wearing gloves and her rhinestone bracelet and earrings. Perhaps other Poppy dolls came fully adorned with their accessories but I don't remember.
Warning, you can't leave these two alone.

If you've been to Hot Toys' website over the past year or so, you've probably seen some text and a few links.

The current challenge is to take the idea of the traditional Japanese kimono and couture-ize it. It's a great (and easier) challenge as it relies solely upon the contestant's own creativity without having to incorporate or interpret the styles of other designers or eras.
The ranks of contestants has thinned.
In the beginner section, I like this one because it's modern-looking with distinct traditional Japanese motifs and accessories.
The image suffers from uneven lighting which seems to be a problem the majority of the entries suffer from. Some aren't lit well enough at all and the beauty of the fashion can't be seen.
This entry in the intermediate category is so gorgeous but it's difficult to see except in the last image where the pieces are turned inside out. The linings are fantastic. Layer upon layer - just like a real kimono with a truly modern, wearable twist.
In the professional category, the following entry is just stunning. There is very little 'kimono' incorporated but I would love this outfit for my dolls. Again, the photograph does not enhance the beauty of the fashion although the images submitted for the photography portion of the contest are lit much better.
There is no law against using the same color for the backdrop as the doll is wearing. It's the light and shadow that will make or break the photo. Photography is about light, not about color. Of course I'm coming from old school photography - film, darkrooms, black & white, etc.
