2013 – Poppy Parker in Barefoot in the Park


Based on Neil Simon’s 1963 play of the same title, it focuses on newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter and their adventures living in a minuscule sixth floor walk-up apartment in a Greenwich Village brownstone. Stuffed-shirt Paul is a hard-working young attorney just starting his practice, while spontaneous bride Corie is determined to create a romantic environment in one room with no heat, a hole in the skylight, and oddball neighbors.

The title refers to Paul’s becoming drunk, throwing caution to the wind and running barefoot in Washington Square Park in response to his wife’s repeated complaints about his sober and cautious demeanor.

Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter Gift-Set

Corie, as depicted by Poppy, is the epitome of a young fashionable woman in 1960’s New York.  Her free spirited optimism accentuates her sense of style.  She’s young and fresh with just the right touch of sophistication.

On her wedding day, Corie has donned a lovely ensemble, which consists of a beautiful blue mini dress with a textured skirt and a fabric flower burst accent at the waist.  Over this, she wears a light blue coat with dark faux fur trim, dark gray shoes, and a matching handbag.  Her light strawberry blond hair is in a lovely updo.

 Later, Corie meets her husband Paul at the bus stop after his long day at work.  She stops traffic, and not just buses, in a dark red ribbed turtleneck and a tan striped “suede” mini skirt with matching “suede” swing coat.  The dark pantyhose and black go-go boots complete her adorable look.

 Later still, the Bratters, joined by Corie’s mother, are dining with their eccentric neighbor, Mr. Velasco.  He’s made dinner reservations at the Four Winds on Staten Island in the middle of winter.  Corie has chosen to wear a lovely sleeveless pink mini dress with bow detail on the neckline with a long sleeved pink coat, tan purse and matching tan pumps.  There may be a chill in the air, but she’s not going to let the weather stop her from having the time of her life!

Poppy Parker as Corie Bratter Corie Bratter  Gift-Set 800 $160.00



Corie Bratter, as depicted by Poppy, is a free spirited gal starting a new life with her ideal man.  She wants to make their small apartment a home that they will love.  She wears her signature beige toggle coat, gold turtleneck top, brown cropped corduroy jeans with belt and short brown “leather” ankle boots.  Her long strawberry blond hair is pulled into a half ponytail and her pretty face is framed with wispy bangs.

 Paul Bratter, as depicted by Chip, is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl fashion figure with fully rooted hair.  Poppy’s beau makes a dashing impression as the young hopeful, though maybe a little uptight, lawyer encouraged to discover that he has his first case in court in the morning.  He’s fashionably outfitted in a classic two-piece gray suit with a perfectly matched light blue dress shirt, navy tie and an ultra masculine wristwatch.  All of this is topped by a smart charcoal gray trench coat with black velvet trim on the collar and neck scarf accessory.  His side parted blond hair and knowing smile finish off his look as the ultimate golden boy who is very happy to see his young wife.
