    The last of the three lines presented this time was Fashion Royalty Classic. Vaughn Sawyers said that this was a capsule collection (which for me screams that more FR are coming later in the year) harking back to the roots of Fashion Royalty. Jason Wu wanted a slightly retro vibe for the line, to make it look like the very early Veronique and Adele dolls, while still keeping it slightly modern. Even the doll screenings are referencing looks of early dolls. For me this was a strong and coherent collection, with great dolls which, while not looking remotely alike, manage to give a definite unified vibe. And yes, the retro element is evident, as are the references to older dolls. The price of the dolls is now $20 US higher than last year's collection, with seemingly nothing to justify it. Later on at the Q&A section, we found out that the tan discolouration issues (green hands on tan dolls) was addressed and solved (I submitted the question about this issue), so new dolls should be fine. Also Nadja was confirmed as making an appearance and also Misaki fans were glad to find out that that line will also be making a comeback this year.


    Item #91314
    Nostalgia
    Dania Zarr™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: 600
    Estimated Ship Date: Late June / Early July 2013


    Dania Zarr is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with blond fully rooted hair that is done up in a luscious classic FR ponytail and she has hand applied eyelashes. Dania is dressed in a black pinstripe dress, accented by a hand-beaded collar and cinched at the waist by a narrow patent leather belt. To complete the look, there is a luxurious faux mink shawl, a bright red contrasting hand-bag and black heels. Doll stand is also included.


    Probably the best doll of the bunch (excluding the event doll, you will see why), this version of Dania shows once more the versatility of her sculpt. The different screenings her face gets always make people wonder if her sculpt is changed. It happened last year and it happened again this time. Still the same sculpt but oh so different.


    Vaughn said her make up and hair were a direct reference to the very first basic Veronique doll. I love it and I think the outfit is elegant and chic too. She could be starring in Mad Men! The embroidered collar is a great detail. Her accessories are lovely too. The bag is TDF. She has the Japan skin tone.



    Item #91315
    Splendid
    Jordan™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: 400
    Estimated Ship Date: Late June / Early July 2013


    Jordan is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with thick dark berry rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She comes in a cocktail dress wrapped in a long faux fur stole. The look is complete with an olive colored bag, matching pumps, opera length faux leather gloves and a gold jewellery set. Doll stand included.


    I will probably regrett not getting this one but the price hike made me more conservative in buing this time. She is a gorgeous doll, with the same skintone she came in last year (called A-tone). Colour-wise, she reminds me of Style Renaissance Adele but in earth tones instead of smoky ones. The dress is amazing.


    I love the bag and shoes (paint something a shade of green and I'm sold) but the rose necklace is tacky. The brooch and earrings are lovely. Her gloves are described as opera length but they look shorter to me. Opera length means above the elbow. She has the smallest edition of all the dolls in the collection and will definitely sell out.


    Item #91316
    Captivating
    Anja™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: 800
    Estimated Ship Date: Late June / Early July 2013


    Anja is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with brunette hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She is wearing an ice-blue gown with over sized bow detail at the waist. The look is finished with an intricate crystal neck piece and earring set, long black lace gloves, a black satin pocket purse and patent leather pumps. Doll stand also included.


    This version of Anja brings to mind Eugenia Spectacular Spectacular, although Vaughn said that she is a nod to Paradise Veronique. The gown is too plain for me - all that volume without anything special but the exquisite shade of blue. 


    I love her hair and make up. Her necklace looks gorgeous and so do the gloves. She has the Caucasian skin tone and the largest edition of all the dolls in this collection.


    Item #91317
    Ambitious
    Kesenia™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: 700
    Estimated Ship Date: Late June / Early July 2013


    Kesenia is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with stylized fully rooted jet black hair and hand-applied eyelashes. She wears a red cocktail dress cinched at the waist by a narrow matching belt and topped by a contrasting black wool fitted coat with a bow detail at the waist. A tan handbag, coordinated pumps, gold earrings and a single gold bracelet complete the look. A doll stand is also included.


    Great new version of Kesenia in jet black hair (first time on her) and again the Japan skin tone. She looks great here but not that much that I would want to add her to my collection. Her outfit is interesting but nothing more.


    Her make up is too orange-y for my taste. Great hair - but I think it is time that Kesenia gets a new length, she has been done in long hair for ever. I'd love to see her (and other dolls) in sharp, geometric bobs. Her accessories are nice. Great shoes.


    Item #91318
    Polished
    Korinne™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: 700
    Estimated Ship Date: Late June / Early July 2013


    Korinne is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with rooted light brunette hair coiffed in a sleek low ponytail and hand-applied eyelashes. She is wearing an intricately detailed pink top and delicately embroidered ton-sur-ton black skirt. Accessories for this look include a delicate flowered cloisonné necklace with matching earrings and a patent leather handbag with matching pumps. Doll stand also included.


    This is the first Corinne I really like as a doll. But the fashion has been done in different version in past dolls and I already have two full black skirts - one embroidered from Agnes Dressing The Part and one from Agnes Festive Decadence. So it's a pass.


    Her make up and hair colour look great and complement her fashion. I love the necklace with the various shades of pink. And those eyes! The bag is TDF.


    After the presentation of the three lines, it was time for the event doll unveiling. We all knew, from the previous event, that this one would not be a lottery but available for every one to order. It was a big surprise to see a second Dania appearing, but her look makes her so different from the other one, it is like a completely different doll. 


    Item #91319
    Irresistible
    Dania Zarr™ Dressed Doll
    The Fashion Royalty® Collection
    2013 W Club Online Event Doll
    Suggested Retail Price: $130.00 US
    Limited Edition Size: TBA
    Estimated Ship Date: Mid to Late Summer 2013


    Dania Zarr is a 12-inch fully articulated vinyl fashion doll with long, gloss blond fully rooted tresses and hand-applied eyelashes.  She wears a black faux leather top with an over sized shawl collar, her looks is complete with a rose necklace, gold and stone earrings, tan spectator pumps, fishnet stockings and a matching handbag. Doll stand also included.


    This is the best doll in the whole event. I love almost everything about her. Colouring, late eighties-style fashion, accessories. She is like a combination of Diamond Society and Going Public Eugenias.


    She has a beautiful make up, with smoky eyes and pale mauve lips, platinum hair and tan skin tone. Vaughn said that he wanted to do something with a portrait collar and combined it with leather which came from the current Jason Wu real fashion collection. The only miss is the rose necklace, which again I think is tacky. The earrings though are great. Necklace, bag and pumps are just like Jordan's, only in different colour. And actually they look like the Daphne bag and Dovima shoes shown when entering the official Jason Wu website, minus the point d'esprit lace overlay. She's a keeper. The edition depends on how many club members order her.


    So that was the second Integrity Toys on-line presentation for 2013. Three strong, solid collections, each with their own style and fans, with a variety and quality that has something for everyone. Can't wait for the next one!

  • 04/01/13--23:16: Tokyo Cherry Blossom
  • Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Tis the cherry blossom (sakura) season in Japan right now and one can see a load of them not just in parks but also lining many streets.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Many of the back streets are where a load of the sakura trees are hidden. They look lovely by day and also look great at night too. This particular street of sakura trees went on for a few hundred meters. The lanterns would light up at night giving the sakura a different look and feel which makes it worth going back for a look when its dark.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Many sakura trees were removed from this road which was a shame - looked lovely last year.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    The cherry blossom season lasts for a few weeks. The act of going to see cherry blossoms (sakura) is called Hanami [花見].

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    You can look for hanami spots online at Mapple - this link is for Tokyo but you can go to the top page and search for spots all over Japan.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    A few snaps as we walk to the next sakura destination.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Roadworks are usually carried out with a guard standing by with his mini light saber.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    This area was once train tracks not so long ago.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    The other bunch of sakura trees just down the road.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Sakura look great when the skies are blue.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Nanako Sakura out to view some sakura.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Love our neighborhood - has a load of old buildings rubbing along with the new.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Some nom noms before heading off for more hanami.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Om rice with some fried chicken. About 800 yen.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Then its off to Komazawa Olympic Park for more hanami.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    The park used to be a golf field which then became the Komazawa Olympic Park for the Tokyo Olympics in 1964.
    Bits of the James Bond film "You Only Live Twice" was filmed in the park - probably the underground bunkers?

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Hanami is also when a load of folk sit under the trees on mats drinking alcohol and munching on snacks. We just ate when we got here - laid out our mat and had an afternoon nap under the trees instead.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Hanami usually passes without incident despite the amount of people crowded into a small area where most of them are drinking. I usually saw fights when groups of people started to drink outside back in the UK.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Not all hanami places allow food and drinks under the trees - especially the ones that line roads. The big parks usually do allow beverages and mats though.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom
    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Komazawa park is huge with a jogging and bicycle track that runs the circumference of the area. Reminded me much of that beachside place in Singapore where you can rent bicycles. You can rent them here too.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Many sporting activities going on including baseball matches and skateboarding.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Picking up some snacks to munch on. The mini Oreo is fab.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    There is a huge stadium at the park which was running some sort of high school sporting activities at the time. Entrance is free.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    A few races were going on. Here we see the women's 200 meter dash.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Some more running girls. Once they crossed the line, they all turned back to the audience to give a bow.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Used to be fast on the legs when I was a wee lad. Now I can run as fast as a garden snail.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Some young lads awaiting their turn.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Then its time for the lads to run.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    And the next giveaway question - what is the name of the guy number 5 and where does he live?

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Some folks practicing their dance moves.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    This type of dance in Japan is called Lyrical where they need to remember a set of moves for a particular tune.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Komazawa Olympic Park also has tennis courts and an outdoor pool too.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Many folks stay out for hours on end while having a hanami session - many stay throughout the night.

    花見 2009

    No fishing in the middle of the grass.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    As with anywhere in the world - the women toilets have long queues in crowded places.

    Tokyo Cherry Blossom

    Most of our trip back home was under sakura trees which lined the back streets.
    More photos of the various cherry blossom seasons listed up below.

    Do you like YuruYuri and plushies? If you said yes then you need to check out Penguin Parade's latest plushies of Akarin and Chinatsu from YuruYuri.

    Both are cute dolls with good looking uniforms but Akarin is the cuter of the two to me. I think her hair buns fit naturally in cloth form and her opened mouthed expression is what really sells her to me. Chinatsu isn't too bad either, I appreciate how Penguin Parade put the hair charms into her hair and if you inspect her pig tails closely they look appropriately scary.

    All this detail does not come cheap however; both plushies come with a suggested price of about ¥4000. They should be shipping out in late June of this year.
