Welcome to Misty Hollows Poppy Parker

On Saturday, May 13, Integrity released its first wave of the Poppy Parker collection, and Poppy is going to London! The dolls are all cute, and available at dealers. 
They are guaranteed to rob your wallet. And this is just the first wave of the new line, more are to be unveiled this year! 
But these aren't the ones I want to talk about. David Butry answered the doll of my dreams. A Poppy Parker I thought I would never see. 

Welcome to Misty Hollows Poppy Parker!

Head Sculpt: Poppy Parker
Body: Poppy 1.5 (Body disassembles and features newly improved joint stability)

While in London Poppy was asked to be a special guest star on a few episodes of her favorite British Spooky TV series, "Misty Hollows". This was quite an honor, as she had been watching this show back home even before it became cool to do so!

Poppy Parker is dressed perfectly to play the part of the "spooked out" neighbor in this classic British TV series! This absolutely stunning edition of everyone's favorite teenage model comes dressed in a fashionable Victorian inspired Mod dress, complete with lace cravate and matching ribbon in her hair. Since we couldn't leave our girl in the dark, Poppy also comes with a super detailed miniature candle and holder*, perfect to shine some light on the mystery surrounding the plot she stars in! For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.
Note: The miniature candle does not light; the pictures below have been digitally augmented.

This doll was an exclusive to W Club members ONLY and a perk at the window unveiling /chat with David Butry. 

I couldn't order fast enough. Can anyone say Dark Shadows???

I'm sure everyone who is over 40 can remember the hit soap opera Dark Shadows that is now a pulp fiction classic. I remember when it came on TV. It came on during the day, so I couldn't watch it, being in school, but I do remember my mother not allowing me to watch it for some goofy reason as I think she thought there was something strange or that little girls shouldn't be watching this type of show. It was considered for adults back then. 

Upon looking at this Poppy Parker, the first thing that came into my mind was Victoria Winters and her introduction to the show-

“My name is Victoria Winters. My journey is beginning, a journey that I hope will open the doors of life to me and link my past with my future, a journey that will bring me to a strange and dark place, to the edge of the sea, high atop Widows' Hill, a house called Collinwood, a world I've never known, with people I've never met, people who tonight are still only shadows in my mind, but who will soon fill the days and nights of my tomorrows.”

Here are two videos for those that are not in the know or don't know about the cornball language of this long forgotten show. At times I admit it can be boring but it can be interesting to watch too, because of the horror and creep fest. 

And that's why I bought Poppy Parker of Misty Hollows
yep, she's my favorite!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Dark Shadows was shown in late afternoon on a station that was hard to bring in in my area. I watched it when I could at my older sister's house. I was 11 and read all of the Marilyn Ross books I could find. So fun.
