In my last post, I explained how I got sucked into the Barbie vortex. Since then, I’ve been sucked into another vortex: Poppy Parker! Of course I’ve used my Fashion Royalty doll for some time now, but Integrity Toys was never really on my radar. I’ve mostly considered the dolls as props for the mid century miniature recreations.
Until recently, I knew nothing about the Poppy Parker line of dolls. Call me late to the party, but I only recently learned that Poppy is set in the 1960s and that all of her fashions fit perfectly with my mid-century theme. So I went a little wild and picked up some Poppies.
This post showcases Snow Stopper Poppy Parker. She is a convention doll that was just released in Winter 2018. She comes with a rather garish hyper pink fur coat that is a little too much for my tastes. But what is underneath the coat is an amazing 1960s appearance that I fell in love with immediately upon seeing.
In addition to my new Poppy fixation, there are two new artists of 1/6 scale miniature I discovered for whom I want to give a shout out:
First is very talented craftier of mini items who supplied Poppy’s makeup accessories. These were made by Anastacia Erkelens, who runs her CHANIKAVA shop on Etsy. Stacia’s work is super cool and I highly recommend you check out her shop for some super great and really realistic 1/6 scale accessories.
Second, I picked up the cool hanging lights from TheAtomicDoll shop on Etsy run by someone humbly named beth on her shop. This shop has some really cool hand made 1/6th scale mid century furniture and I really admire this person’s skill.
I see myself deviating from the Phicen dolls for a bit while I focus on incorporating the various Poppys into some cool mid century scenes. But the continuity is still maintained with all my previous posts as Our Story So Far continues….
After purchasing her new hideout, Madame H called one of her old associates to help her carry out her nefarious plans, a girl who is a master of many appearances. A girl who goes under the cover of a young fashion model, but in fact, is a secret double agent. Some call her…Poppy!

Please enjoy They Call Her Poppy! (with musical accompaniment, if you so wish)

I’m so glad that you found time to do another scene! I love the Poppy. I haven’t had anything new lately, due to my stupid broken arm. It’s very frustrating having extra time, and not being able to do much with it. It does give me more time to see what everyone else is doing, though, so that’s nice. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thanks for the wonderful diorama! 🙂
I feel bad for you Ronda.:( Nothing u can do but let it heal. Bright side is, it will get better. Sounds like you are making constructive use of the time though, which is really smart. Yeah, I’m going to do at least one more before Xmas is over. I got all my stuff out now and will be working on it between all the Holiday activities. Also, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! Thanks again for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments!
