It did not take that long after the end of the registration period for new dolls to be unveiled from Integrity Toys. Carol and Alain had mentioned in the Club webinar that we would see new stuff soon and here they are. Plus a new Misaki is about to be available for pre-order in a matter of hours. Busy time! Carol presented the new dolls through live streaming, with the two designers, Mark Tinkey and Jessy Ayala as guests. Mark gave us his commentary about the third addition to the Coven Couture Nu Fantasy line and Jessy revealed two NU Face dolls, one of which is a totally new character. Let us check out the new witch first.

Anja, it’s been a while! This sculpt (which is one of the rejected Vero 2.0 faces) has been a while since last seen outside of convention - 2015 as an ITBE lingerie doll (which is one of the two I own, the other being Regal Solstice). She has appeared as a NU Fantasy doll before, back in 2013 IFDC as Glam Vamp, in similar hair and skin colouring. She is a more conventionally dressed lady than the previous two instalments of this collection, but I think she will look nice next to them. A hint of Gothic elements (black hair, light skin, red lips, nails, stones and dress) tries to distract from a very couture gown, with draping, netting and embroidery in full force. The dress is magnificent and Mark should be very proud. I hope the production doll does not deviate from this.
The bag is the now familiar metallic minaudière but encrusted with red stones, to compliment her jewellery. If you take out the thorn decorated bracelets and necklace, you have another version of Flame Rouge Veronique or Sizzling in Paris Poppy. Her make up should have been more blended to be more enticing to me. I would have preferred to see her styled more intensely though, like a glam version of Siouxsie Sioux for example. I would have entered the lottery in a heartbeat. Now, I must abstain, the dolly budget will not allow it. Even though she is a lottery for the club, any remaining dolls will become available to the public after the lottery ends. So if you are not a member and want her, stay alert.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Prototypes shown, final product may vary. Acrylic blocks in the accessory pictures are display props only and are not included with the doll. This collectible is meant for adult collectors ages 15 and up only.
