Updating Norma Desmond

Early November IT announced they were releasing a Norma Desmond / Sunset Boulevard Commemorative Doll. 

Commemorative dolls are not my thing but I love the Giselle sculpt and the Nu.Face body so much that I happily placed an order. Then IT announced the doll would not be coming on a Nu.Face body after all, but rather a BOD body. 

Dang! Would I have the additional expense of rebodying this girl?

I adopted a wait-and-see attitude and am happy to report that once out of her period costume and with her hair softened she is a winner. imho. And she is rocking that BOD body!

I don’t collect Poppy Parker

I don’t collect Poppy. Never have, never will. 

Besides not being a fan of the 50s/60s, I don’t care for her annoying ankle joint and big feet that don’t fit FR or Babs shoes. Her body is shorter, too. I just can’t justify amassing clothing and shoes for yet another body/foot type. So I don’t collect Poppy. 

She’s Not There!

Home for Thanksgiving Dinner

Photo Styling Battle is a FR doll flickr group that has opened up a playground for doll redressing. There’s no voting or winning – the idea is to challenge each other’s creativity and to have fun.

The group's November challenge is to restyle either High End Envy Erin or Sweet Confection Poppy Parker using one of three theme options. I’m so enjoying the photos that are being added to the pool!

Here’s my entry - HEE Erin in the category “Home for Thanksgiving Dinner.”

Coat - Clear Lan
Purse - POM
Scarf - Mattel
Earrings and pin - Dollar Store
Bracelets - model’s own
Pie - Re-Ment
Door and Wreath - Nancy Colgar 2003
