I've decided to revamp this old blog a bit and concentrate mainly on the male fashion and character dolls. I've been a fan of the male dolls since Tonner introduced Matt and all the fabulous artists out there started repainting him. For a while I focused my collection on the repainted male Tonner dolls. While I love dolls in general and certainly collect the girls too, the male dolls remain a bit of a focus here.................they aren't just accessories.

Poppy and Darla
I've loved Poppy Parker's sculpt since she first came out, but kept telling myself I wasn't "going there" with the 12" size again, so I resisted.........and resisted.............and resisted..................until just recently, LOL!
I have been enjoying my 12" size girls again, so I started browsing different doll sites hoping to find a Poppy in stock at a price I could afford. I lucked upon a dealer selling the set of Youthquake Poppy and Twist and Shout Darla, so hit the "buy" button.
I was actually quite surprised that I loved photographing Darla almost more than Poppy. I think if I relax Poppy's hair a bit it will help. She just looks so "aloof". I do love her sculpt though. I'll definetely be keeping my eye out to add more of these 2 to my collection.
