If there is a local fashion doll club in your area, join! If you don't have a local
doll club, start one! We had the best time EVER!!!
So, there were only four of us but we had the best time! The new space that we
met in has promise! It is pretty? ...as meeting space goes... no, but it has a
PowerPoint projector and a Smart Board! We will try to use those next time!
Attending the meeting was Leo (Ms. Leo from I-Luv-Dolls), Dana (D7ana from
A Philly Collector of Playscale Dolls and Action Figures), Miya and Kev,
(from Dollapalooza ) you heard me mention them in my collectors interview post!
I brought the coffee and donuts! You know I had to have coffee! (I firmly believe that
it was the invent of coffee that cause man to stand erect and use his opposing thumb!
Yeah, crazy Ms. Leo!) I brought some dolls for show and tell. I also had some dolls
and doll things for trade. Dana also had two (Mixis) dolls and with
clothing and and a lot of doll clothing for trade. I think Dana and
I tried to be conservative. We didn't bring alot. I think we didn't want
to overwhelm. What were we thinking!
I had my new Chelsea's friend Tamika and Darrin too with an older Tamika
for comparison. Added was a new aa Kelly doll.
I also had my Hunger Games men Finnick and Peeta with me.
To that I added my Divergent male doll (whoever he is).
You can see the Divergent male doll in the first shot. Somehow I didn't
take a close up shot of him. Those were my show and tell items.
I had some things for trade too. Here is a small picute of my stuff for trade.
Dana had her Mixis Dolls.
I love this outfit!
Cute shoes too!
to covet. We covet what we see!" So I was coveting Mixis dolls!
She had these items to trade!
At first it was just the two of us, then Miya and Kev came. These are
two collectors with no shame in their game! They brought a suitcase of
dolls! A smart way to travel I must say too!
began! They had dollsI had only seen on the net. They carefully unwrapped
dolls in bubble wrap to our delight! So here is what they had!
If you read this post anywhere other
It is a fake!!! Run!!
Miya and Kev
Sorry about my foot and a bit of kitty in this shot!
Heart Family Mom rebodied! Too Cute!
I don't think that they took all of their dolls out of the suitcase!
I didn't take pictures of everything. Too busy talking, trading, and eating!
Kev is right! Melody doesn't take a bad picture every!
Look at the top stiching!
talked about patterns, material and the tediousness of pressing.
Here are a few outfits that I traded with them for.
They got from me these items! I will do a photo shoot
of my dolls in the haul I got at the meeting!
Kev and a ton of pictures! Way more than I take and it made me wonder
why I don't takemore! Kev showed me pictures on his phone and in his
camera. I think I could have looked at them for days! He had some great
pictures of Melody and it inspired me to take more
of my doll.
We watched a My Froggy Stuff Video too! I think that should be part of
every doll club meeting! I showed some of my favorite sites and finds on
my tablet. Next time we will use the projector! There were several
conversations going on at once! It was fun and uplifting! We decided to
have a challenge! To restyle the same doll for the next meeting! Doesn't
that sound like fun!
So if you are in the area and can make it, you should come to our
next doll club meeting!
Finally, read what Dana wrote about out meeting!
