Angela Bassett as Marie Laveau, as featured in American Horror Story: Coven coming December 2016 From Integrity Toys!
[IT announced these dolls like two years ago–just as AHS: Coven was wrapping up. Retailers are finally taking pre-orders on the 6 dolls in the series. The dolls all have new face sculpts modeled after the actors who played each character, which helps explain the long delay in release! The edition sizes range from 600 to 900, depending on the character. I’m (more than) a little mad that Angela Bassett’s doll is the smallest edition size–even the Evan Peters doll has a bigger edition size than hers!?–but believe this means I’m gonna get my pre-order reserved ASAP-tually! –MOD]
Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of the Etiquette of Sleeping, Lying and Sitting etc
Book 5, Hadith 814
Narrated ‘Al-Bara’ bin 'Azib (ra):
Whenever Messenger of Allah (pbuh) went to bed, he would lie down on his right side and recite: “Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika, wa fawwadtu amri ilaika, wa 'alja'tu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, la malja'a wa la manja illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabikal-ladhi anzalta, wa nabiyyikal-ladhi arsalta [O Allah! I have submitted myself to You, I have turned my face to You, committed my affairs to You, and depend on You for protection out of desire for You and out of fear of You (expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment). There is no refuge and no place of safety from You but with You. I believed in the Book You have revealed, and in the Prophet You have sent (i.e., Muhammad ()).]” [Al-Bukhari].
We’ve been awaiting the return of Jordan for a few years. I believe her last doll was Splendid, which came out in 2012, so it’s been a minute. Glad to have her back with newly dyed bronzed blonde tresses! Jordan is a favorite of mine because she just always looks incredibly unimpressed and I can relate. Her outfit isn’t my favorite but I do love the pieces individually and can’t wait to redress her.
I am sorry the photo is *so* terrible (I could not get this girl to balance at all), but I really wanted to post this pattern set I made today. I thought it might be a nice distraction for some on a day like today.
The instructions are simple, because I’m not super adept at giving pattern instructions, but I think all the important information is there. Plus it is a free pattern after all. ;)
It essentially includes a scoop-neck version of the shirt she is wearing, a second-more complicated raglan tee (photos of which I will be taking and posting this weekend) as well as her skirt!
Also of note, dependent upon where you install the velcro, all three can fit all sizes of Barbie! In addition, they also fit Liv and Disney Descendants dolls as well!
A PDF version can also be downloaded here for easier printing. It is made to fit on a standard 8.5″x11″ sheet of paper. Just be sure to print at full size!
I hope this brings someone some joy! Also, for added mix-and-matchability, check out @dollsahoy‘s great tightspatterns! I have been making all of these like crazy for my girls, now if only I would take some photos!
