Anthony with my little living doll.
But back to World Doll Day. The 2015 challenge is to list your three favourite dolls in your collection and three from your wishlist.
Dolls I Own
#3. Elfdoll (Artmaze Inc) Pin Up Barbara
'Barbara' is a 60cm BJD released back in July 2010 as a limited edition of 30 dolls, and came with the outfit, extra hands and feet, and eyelids which you can set with putty to give a half lidded look. It's the biggest fashion doll I own, and also the most expensive, even though her articulation is awful. Seriously, she sits more awkwardly than a splay legged clone Sindy half the time! Still, to me she's one of the most beautiful dolls I've ever seen and definitely belongs in my top three.
#2. Wildflower Dolls Tara
I love Wildflowers dolls - it's nice to see something a bit different in sixth scale, and I love the character in her doll heads. Tara is the first one I bought (check out the etsy store HERE), then I added Allison a few months later. I haven't ruled out getting more.
#1. To The Fair Poppy Parker
Poppy Parker, from Integrity Toys, is just about my all time favourite doll line. Poppy's back story is that she is, essentially, Twiggy: a teenage model who takes the 1960s by storm. 'To The Fair' was a W Club exclusive in 2013 and is the only Poppy I own so far, though I also have a Colour My World Darla Daley, Poppy's friend.
Dolls I Want To Own
#3. Hot Toys Marty McFly
Hot Toys make sixth scale action figures but, really, you say tomato, I say tomato. Check out Marty's full stats HERE.
#2. Lillycat Cerisedoll
Lillycat is a French BJD company who specialise in the weird and wonderful. Pictured is Ninon.
#1. Beatnik Blues Poppy Parker
Given my raving about Poppy Parker in the last section, the number one here is probably no surprise. Beatnik Blues is my favourite Poppy - though I think she'd have to lose the beret!
