If I'm being honest Poppy always tends to be first on my to go pile. Let's fast forward to 2013/4 and the Poppypalooza love fest began. I was sorting through my collection and found my In The Air Poppy from the 2011 FR Convention.
Ayr ( her new name) and Sebina are waiting for bodies
Here are all my current Poppy's. I had more but I sold about 4 or 5 while raising funds for convention. That Holiday Feeling and IFDC Glamorous Darling haven't been freed as of yet. This past 2014 FR Convention found me with three new ladies to my small collection.
Here is a closer look. Wild Thing & Corrie are waiting for me to swap them to their new bodies. The other two are already on Victoire Roux bodies.

Dark Moon is on a tall FR body. She was screaming for a breast augmentation LOL. Diana aka Joyous is original. Switzerland is on a NuFace body. I got the OOAK from a friend and she stays original for now or until I find a new body.

Darla Daley is also in the Poppy Parker line. These ladies are on their original bodies at the moment. Once I find dolls to match there will be a swap happening.

Twist n Shout was first and only with this face. The story goes that the mold was broken so her face was changed. I still may look for Simply Simpatico since she has short hair and I NEED her :O) I also have the first Loni Lawrence and her body has been swapped out.
I know you're thinking that's a lot of swapping. I am truthful in telling anyone who listens that I have no love for the Poppy cankle. I will remove the head and sell the original body as soon as humanly possible. I haven't done that with the Darla's to date because I need to find Dynamite Girl or NuFace bodies for them. I don't think there are any to match other than maybe Colette or Aria.
I own 12 Poppy's, 3 Darla's ,and 1 Loni. I think I can live with that. I definitely don't have as big a Poppy problem as I thought. We will see as I go through the collection who I own more of. I hope I didn't bore anyone with my ramblings :O)
If you're bothered by nude or partially nude dolls don't look below..LOL. Here is the unedited pic of the Poppy's so you can see the bodies
