The Committee

It's time to get organized, and it's obvious I need assistance in that matter.  So, I have enlisted the aid of some of my most special dolls.  These dolls will form "The Committee".  They are going to be tasked with critiquing the dolls who live here (both in and out of the box) and help me decide their fates.  The Committee will also decide which dolls get to wear the loose outfits when they arrive.

Choosing the members of this esteemed committee took a great deal of consideration.    The first member of The Committee is a doll that is very dear to me.  She represents the NuFace and Dynamite Girl sections of the collection.
"Hello, my name is KiKi.  You may remember me from Doll Diva's Next Top Doll contest a a few years ago." 
"I am the Colette from the 2007 BIC Exclusive Giftset Paint In Black."  KiKi was purchased through an Integrity Lottery, which was the first lottery I ever won.   She is the first doll given a name different from her mold name.  "I am going to take this responsibility with the seriousness that it requires.  I will do my best to make the correct decisions for all dolls in this collection."

The next doll introduced me to diorama staging and story development.  If you've been in the collecting community for a few years you may remember her.

"Hi!  I hope you remember me?  I'm Honey, and I was recently reunited with my lavender poodle Henri (Thank you Dawn)!" 
"I traveled to Paris to study design.  I found Henri one day while I was out sightseeing." 
"I fell in love with this little pup while trying to locate his owner."  
"Seeing the bond between Henri and me, Henri's owner gave him to me."  Honey is a 2006 Misaki Honey Harajuku.  She was the first Integrity "playline" doll I owned.  Honey (and Henri, since they are inseparable) will represent the Misaki, Poppy, and Audrey Hepburn doll lines.  Two seats of The Committee have been filled.

It seemed only natural that the doll chosen to represent the Fashion Royalty and Monogram lines would be the doll that was the most difficult for me to acquire - the holiest grail (and my biggest nemesis for years) in my collection.
"I am Vanessa Perrin.  I am the raven-haired version of A Fashionable Life, a 2006 FAO Exclusive of only 300 dolls.   I appear on many collectors' most wanted list.  I will hold very high standards from which to judge the dolls to continue residence here."

And, of course, The Committee would not be complete without the strongest character in my collection. She just got back from a recent photo session, so she arrived a little late.
"It's me Chaundra.  I represent the play line dolls.  That will include Barbie, ITBE, Star Dolls, Frankendollies, etc.  I have been here a while and will be here long after many of the other dolls have left.  I know what it takes to be in the spotlight and keep it."
This is going to be a very difficult job.  Maybe we should start with something easy.  At the bottom right side of this blog there is a "Want List".  One of those items was recently acquired in MINT condition at a great price and was delivered this week.  Our first task will be to decide who will wear the Silver Society ensemble.  It is quite extraordinary.

"Wait ... Wait .... Wait ... hold the presses!  I have already solved your first task for you ...."

"You didn't think that a committee was going to be formed without a representative from the House of Weiss?  What is this?  Three children deciding the fate of FR dolls? ... and a DOG!?"

"Vanessa, you should have contacted me directly.  Shame on you.  Now, I'll just take a seat at the table ..."
".... But all the seats have been filled ..."

"Sorry, dear.  I didn't see you there."

Robyne, this is absolutely priceless! I guess Agnes will kind of be the Janice Dickinson of your panel? In that you never know what will come out of her mouth.... You know, better not tell her that I said that.....

Loved it! This will be very interesting. Glad to see Chaundra made the committee. Great sign, by the way.

Hello from Spain: Kiki is adorable. She has perfect hair. I love the dog. It's a very original dog. Vamessa Perrin is my favorite. She is all elegance and beauty. Congratulations on this post so original. Looking forward to seeing your collection evolves in the future. Keep in touch.

I hope the Committee works some magic on getting you organized… but I’m a little hesitant about how smoothly they will do it. This fabulous foursome bears watching. ;)
