Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker
I haven't covered 12" dolls for a while, so I thought I should rectify that by showing you two of my newer Poppy Parkers. I got them both this past year, but haven't put them on the blog yet. This beauty is Joyous Celebration Poppy Parker, who was a W Club offering celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Poppy Parker doll. I think she's just lovely. She'll definitely be staying.
She has the same eye screening as the Bergdorf Poppy, I Love How You Love Me, Ask Any Girl and Baby It's You (as well as a slew of other Poppys).
Her earrings are absolutely wonderful. Her dress is done in a high-quality fabric, with a tiny zipper down the back. Her shoes are pink to match the fluffy underskirt. She has one of my favorite hair colors: That shade of brunette that's so dark brown it's almost black, but not quite.
And since it's Poppy week, I'll show you another I got last summer. She's the silver-haired "Sebina Havoc: Mistress of Disguise" Poppy Parker. This doll came with two heads and I had no interest in her other head, so I ended up selling it before I even got a picture. This head is so pretty, but I've been planning to do a partial reroot on her to fill out her hair in the back. Her hair came in a ponytail, and when I took it down, I discovered a pretty big bald spot in the back of her head. Turns out she's a match for the "silver bullet" saran doll hair sold on dollyhair.com, so I ordered some of that for her. I still haven't bothered to do the partial reroot yet, though. (Sorry, but I don't know what the color saran is called on the Restore Doll site, since I don't use them.)
Here she is, looking sad that she still has a bald spot in back. She does look good in blue, though, doesn't she?
