Tulabelle (You Better Werk Tulabelle)

My package of convention dolls came a couple of days ago, but it's been either too rainy or too windy or I was working during daylight hours, so I could only start taking pictures now.  All of them are super gorgeous!  And, there are even more I want from the lottery of leftover stuff (especially Vero and a couple more CI girls).  But I'm super broke now.

We'll start it off with Tulabelle.  I am soooooo excited for The Industry line.  Both Tulabelles shown so far have been really awesome, and I can't wait to see what sort of friends she has.  If they're as fabulous as You Better Werk Tulabelle, I'll be extra poor.

American Horror Story: Coven Doll Collection!

So, this is the line that we've been waiting for 2 years to hear about.  They got a sneak peek at convention before the rest of the WClub got to see the email, which dropped yesterday.  To be honest, there were a lot of disappointed people.  They're actually growing on me a little bit the more I look at them, but I still don't know if I'll get one.  The clothes are AMAZING, though.  It's being hotly debated on whether the face sculpts actually look like the actors or not.

Marie Laveau Doll:

I find that this is one of the sculpts that does mostly resemble the actor.  Though, I wouldn't say this doll is quite as beautiful as Angela Bassett.  There's something kind of off with the lips, but I do love her whole look.  I'll probably still get her, knowing me and my lack of willpower.

Fiona Goode Doll:

Awesome, awesome outfit.  And I like that there is now a mature face sculpt floating around at IT, but I don't feel that this looks like Jessica Lange.  I like the idea of having an older woman in my collection, so I'll see how she looks in real life, but if I want a mature woman, I might go for the next doll instead:

Myrtle Snow Doll:

I wish there was a better closeup of her face, but I love the hair, and the outfit is VERY show accurate (as are all the fashions).  I'm hoping she doesn't sell out before some real life shots of her make the rounds.

Zoe Benson Doll:

The prettiest doll in the collection, IMO.  I don't find she looks much like Taissa Farmiga, but she's still very pretty.  She looks like she's Giselle's sister, or Agnes's daughter or something.  I think I'll have to try to pre-order her at some point.

Kyle Spencer Doll:

They NAILED the accuracy with this one.  It looks really close to Evan Peters.  I don't collect Hommes, so it's an immediate pass for me, but I think he'll be pretty popular since he's a very handsome doll.

Madison Montgomery Doll:

I have mixed feelings about this doll.  She doesn't look much like Emma Roberts to me, and I find her face kind of wide and weird looking, but that actually kind of makes me like her more.  I sort of dig the dolls that are outcasts, so to speak.  Her outfit is fab.

So, what was missing from this collection?  How about my fave character from the show, Cordelia???  Or Misty??  Or Nan?  Or Papa Legba (I would have soooo bought him and broken my embargo on male dolls because it's Papa fucking Legba, and because I love Lance Reddick).

The dolls' release dates will be staggered, with two coming out every month or so, somewhat like the Heart MLP line.  Marie Laveau should be at dealers this week and ready to go, with the others following in November, December, and early January.

Qadira (Polished Korinne)

Hope everyone likes the new layout.  It's actually been up for a few days, but I just haven't updated.

Dasha (Purity Dasha)

The Year Of The Dasha!  There have been some great Dasha releases this year.  She was absent for quite a while.  I wasn't collecting Integrity when most of the early Dashas were released, so I only have this one incarnation of her so far, but I'm hoping to expand that collection in the near future. (Daytime Impact will be on her way to me once Lady Stardust Tulabelle comes back from her body matching trip to China).

Harley (The Great Pretender Lillith)

It's exciting that the convention Lillith, Editorial Edge, has the Great Pretender screening.  I can't wait to get mine in a few week (she's shipping from IT to the person that I bought her from).  But I still have this lovely lady to keep me company until her brunette doppelganger arrives.

Salem (Aerodynamic Vanessa)

My convention dolls arrived at my friend's house in the states, so they'll be on their way to me tomorrow!  Wheeeeeee!

I love the blue lipstick on this girl.  I hope different lips is something we'll see from the Industry line.

Elizabeth (Hopelessly Captivating Luchia)

Now that the convention has ended, there will be dolls coming to live with me - more than I'd planned on, really.  But, before they do arrive, let's give some love to the dolls that will be welcoming them to the fold.  One of the best convention dolls ever made has to be Hopelessly Captivating Luchia.
