Part ll of Hippy Dippy Poppy Parker & the Model Scene

Part ll of the Hippy Dippy Poppy Parker saga. Sometimes I think a doll's attraction does not grab us until we hold her in our hands, or see her.The promo pics do not really do her justice. (another doll that comes to mind is the newest Haunted Beauty - the zombie , whose pics from the Barbie convention are floating about. Her promo pics were bleh. Too pink, too unfinished, lacking. But the attendees pics of the actual doll show something that the promos did not.) And so it was with Hippy Dippy or Athena. I think the same came be said with her predecessor, Groovy Galore, our registration doll. I am so glad I went ahead and got this lovely. Though she is very basic, she is what I consider the first in the model scene with the makeup they are using on all of these dolls, the blue eye shadown, the heavy applied eyelashes, the pink lips. 

The appeal of Hippy Dippy is she came with an extra outfit, that cute boater/ evening gown with little flower sequins all over it and black stockings to go with her boots. Gave her a Nancy Sinatra/These Boots are gonna walk all over you type of look. That's the song that kept going thru my head as I did these shots. I decided to pair up Groovy Galore with her in a little black dress with her gold earrings and gold shoes, sort of a la Goldfinger from that era of the 60's versus the 70's and go from there. 

Here they are....
