In a surprising turn of events, the IFDC souvenir and companion dolls blueraspberrydesigns.com were both Poppy Parkers! Diehard Poppy fans who did not attend the event are fuming and feeling betrayed because it will be very expensive to secure these dolls on the secondary market. If eBay is a guideline, they will go for between $250. — $375. and up.
The convention souvenir is called “Glamorous Darling.” She is part of the Poppy Parker 5th Anniversary Collection and has a hybrid body with a high-heeled foot. My personal preference is for the fashion foot as the articulated ankle always looked awkward to me.
As I noted in my last blog post, Poppy is looking more mature and glamorous. Is she not going to continue being the teenage model she started out began as?
She’s also graduated to a contemporary accessory seen here in the platform shoes.
She is a beautiful doll IMO.
The companion doll is called “IT Girl.” I love what this doll is wearing and I’d like to own her!
So, what do you think? Are you a Poppy collector? Will you try to get these dolls? Of the three, which is your favorite? Do you wish IT would have kept these dolls and had their dealers offer them to collectors?
