Orange Hair

This past October I hosted my doll club meeting.  The theme I chose was Hair Colors.  African American dolls normally come with black hair, but what other hair colors do they wear.

Blanka
He is Brazilian and from the game/movie Street Fighter.  He is  human but was involved in a plane crash that caused him to be raised in the wild.  The plane landed in the Amazon Rainforest and explosed  him to electric eels, which  mutated his appearance and gave him electric powers.  He is one of the most powerful fighters. (info from wikipedia)

IT IS OKAY TO BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT

Blanka (street fighter)  Clawdeen, Storm, Nefertari

 Shades of Orange
Camp Barbie, Defa Lucy(discount doll), Fairytopia Magical Mermaid Christie, Blanka, Lace (Creata) Jewel Hair Barbie (longest hair ever and does not have orange hair)

Fashion Fashionista Barbie and Steven have just won first place for their costume of this famous musical duo.

Where?

Sorry for not posting for awhile.  I was chairperson for an annual luncheon that occurred this past Saturday and I was busy preparing for the event.  I am back now.  I survived Hurricane Sandy and I am just waiting for the power to be restored.  This is a time to thank friends and family that you can count on to help you through these times.  I am able to post because of them.

The New Ladies

 I recently bought three new female dolls/figures.  

Evening Gown Barbie Doll with the silkstone body.

Fuchsia and Fur Francie.   She has a silkstone body.  I am able to enjoy Francie without spending the monies for an original.  I was ready at 12:00 pm eastern standard time to place my order.  I was not going to miss her.

Phicen (name of company)  The figure has no name.  The 1/6 Seamless female body has 33 points of articulation. The body shows no visible joints.



Francie, Phicen, Evening Gown

Nick Fury

Finally, he has been made in 12".  I have been waiting for this action figure.   Two years during the holiday season they created a Nick Fury figure that was about 4" tall but he was included in  the 3 figure Iron Man pack.  I have waited patiently and it was worth the wait.


He also comes with a set of hands and gloves



A fantastic face sculpt

Happy Labor Day

Labor Day is a holiday to celebrate the workers.  It is also the day that ends Summer and the beaches close.  Steven and Christie are at the beach for one last day.  I still will not wear white after this day. However, Tuesday Taylor will continue to wear her white with Darius by her side.

New Police Officer figure

I purchased the Los Angeles Police Officer figure that was named Tiger.  The figure was supposed to look like Tiger Woods.  I wanted the figure because a 12" Tiger figure has never been made.  I was disappointed when I received the figure because it does not remind me of Tiger.  It is a well made figure and it comes with all the accessories for a police officer.  The figure was created by ZC World.
