As mentioned previously, my "Twelve Dolls of Christmas" begins today. I will be featuring twelve dolls before Christmas in seasonal settings for fun so make sure you stick around.
Tears Go By Poppy Parker,
one of the Integrity Toys 'Dark Romance' 2010 convention dolls
Eowyn, after the Lady of Rohan from the Lord of the Rings
After the first taste of a red-haired Poppy Parker at the beginning of the year, I craved for a brunette version to join my collection. At last, here she is!
I haven't been fortunate enough to attend any doll conventions. Eowyn was very recently acquired from a fellow doll collector. There was no chance in hell that I was going to pass up a chance on this gorgeous doll. Something about her speaks to the gray shades of my existence. She came to me never removed from box in her original attire as photographed above.
I love everything about this doll. Nothing unconventional. Nothing overdone. Just perfect in her sheer simplicity. I named her Eowyn for no particular reason. I always liked the name when I first heard of it from the Lord of the Rings movie (I read the first book but fell asleep trying to read the second one so I stuck to the films).
Because Eowyn's face has a slight look of melancholy befitting her production name, I dedicate these Tears Go By Poppy photos to those of you out there who will be spending the holidays away from loved ones this year.
