This past Saturday, Integrity Toys did a live presentation for two dolls: the last doll in the Coven Couture series by Mark Tinkey as well as the first doll in the new Magia 2000 series for the line. Both dolls got collectors really excited, even though they will not be received until Spring 2023. Here we check out the Elements of Enchantment Korrine Dimas doll by Mark, who was present in the webinar, answering questions and showing us the prototype doll who looks amazing. The doll is a W Club lottery and, if any remain after that goes through, they will become available to the public - a thing I doubt as they are very popular dolls.

What a firring way to close the Coven Couture collection! Korinne looks amazing again, first time she is in a darker skin tone - she usually stays lighter. It suits the gorgeous dress to a T - I love the shape of it and the embroidery is fantastic. I’m all for green - if you want to sell me something, paint it green - and this olive shade is awesome. The only thing that worries me is the execution of the hip drape at the back - it does not look nice in the photos and it did not look nice on the presentation video. I hope this turns out better on the production dolls. She definitely channels Never Predictable Adaline King from the 2017 IFDC convention, designed by Vaughn Sawyers.
Her face looks amazing and the voluminous hair kept away from the face with the braids and gathering is well executed and avoids problems like Zuri had in the latest Meteor outing. I would have liked brown eyes instead of green though - would have given more of an Egyptian vibe. Mark said that Ancient Egypt was one of his sources of inspiration and I always like its elements if well Incorporated, like here. The curly hair, draping on the hips, gown shape, transparent fabric, plus those asymmetrical serpent earrings, are perfection. Well done Mark, not only for this amazing doll, but for the entire collection, which is one of the best ones Integrity Toys has done lately. I’m entering the lottery, are you?
