Ginny comes to town........

I've been planning to add Ginny to my Harry Potter collection since her introduction, but I admit to waiting for a sale. When Cherished Friends put her on sale this week I had to go for it.
She arrived today and I took her outside for a few quick pics...............Harry came along and was included in this shot.

I really do like her. She rounds out the shelf in my cabinet devoted to the original Potter collection quite nicely. I"m planning on getting most of the new scale Potter collection as long as my pocketbook holds out. Really looking forward to what comes next.

Professor McGonagall..........

I've been a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and movies since the beginning. I remember being so thrilled to hear Tonner had gotten the license to produce the dolls, and then a bit disappointed when I heard they were going to be a different scale than the Tyler Wentworth line.
I ended up caving and getting Harry, Hermione and Ron from the original line, and then added Draco as well. I never bought any of the adults though, because they were too big for the shelves in my cabinet. At Toy Fair this year, when I heard that Tonner was going to redo the line and make the dolls in scale with Tyler's world, I knew I was going to be in trouble. Recently I brought the first doll to be produced in the new scale , Professor McGonagall.

I really like her! I"m very excited to see Harry and Ron when they start shipping. I have heard that Hermione is definetely coming as well, and I was also told that Tonner confirmed he would be doing Dumbledore in this new size. One can only hope Voldemort, the Elder Malfoy and Bellatrix will be redone in this size as well......................................and how about the rest of the kids. I'm really hoping for Draco at least, as well as maybe Neville? And how about Mr. and Mrs. Weasley............wouldn't that be fun? Yay for Harry Potter!!

I wasn't going to "go there".........I haven't bought a 13" size fashion doll in several years. I was determined not to get sucked into the new Revlon line. I thought I was safe as I really am not a fan of the 13" Revlon sculpt, then I saw Artemis.
I really love some of the clothing in the 13" line, so when I saw Artemis FS on Tonner Direct, in a moment of weakness I caved and ordered her. She arrived today, and she's really beautiful. Her body is a miniature version of Antionette's body. She's so fun to pose and play with..........and she can sit like a lady.

At least I'll have a model to wear some of the cool clothing Tonner has for this size now. I think I'm acutally going to have a lot of fun with this one.

My Telltale Heart.........

A new Ellowyne arrived on my doorstep today, My Telltale Heart. I"ve been keeping down the Ello herd by selling the nude dolls whenever I buy a doll I like to get the outfit. Since Ellowyne's debut, I've managed to keep only 1.
I had every intention of unpacking this one, stripping her and then packing her back up to sell.........................until I opened the box and saw her, LOL! She's so different than any of the other Ellowyne's produced to this point. Her skintone is VERY pale..........almost white..............the hairstyle is gorgeous as well. I never thought I would like the inset eyes. As a collector of BJDs I love to be able to "adjust" the eyes myself, Ello's don't bother me as much as I thought they would.

I've decided she's going to stick around and be the model for my gothier looking outfits. I think she will be great in "Chills" and "Nevermore". It's about time that Tatters got a friend anyway.

Outside with Cami........

I've been slowly redressing my Antoinette bodied dolls for fall. Since I've taken very few pics of Cami since her arrival, I decided to take her outside for some new pics today.
She's wearing Ellowyne's Always Playing Solitaire, which fits her perfectly.

I really love the Cami dolls. I just wish Tonner would give her a new hairstlye soon. I'm tired of the long scrunched hair look. I've been holding out getting anymore Cami's until we get a new hairstyle.

In an Ello frame of mind........

Ello has been sitting on my dresser for weeks dressed in "I Couldn't Care Less". She looks so cute wearing this outfit I decided she deserved to come down for some pictures today. I only have one Ellowyne, but I really, really love the one I have.
She will be getting a sister soon. I have to admit to caving on the Modern Doll Ello. That outfit and pale skintone won me over. It will be nice to have a raven as well as a blonde. I guess a redhead will be next, and then I"ll have a haircolor for every outfit,LOL!

And lastly, a shot of the adorable PJ's under that amazing robe. Ellowyne really does have the most amazing clothes. I think I like her wardrobe better than any other Tonner line (although I have high hopes for Antoinette/Cami/Jon.

Confidential Muse...........

I've really liked this Antoinette outfit since I first saw pictures of it. Finally took the plunge and got one when Tonner direct had them on sale a couple of weeks ago.
Cameo Muse Antoinette offered to model wearing a Monique wig. I've forgotten the name of the style, but I really like it on her.

Ty and LiveWire........

One parting shot of Ty with LiveWire. She left to go to a new home today. Since my Fairyland Lishe arrived and stole all the AG girls clothing and wigs, they will hopefully all be relocating. LiveWire found a new home already and hopefully Aphro and Freeze Frame will follow suit.........................found this picture on my hardrive that I had never uploaded, so decided to upload and share.
