Well today we waited with baited breath for the Convention collection to be unveiled. I didn't want to wait in line from the morning so I went to Woodfield Mall for abit and walked around getting the exercise that I didn't do in the gym today. Then when I came back with some very good beef tacos, I went down to wait for the room to open, meeting some lovely people in the line, while we whiled away a good hour. In the meantime, people who had gone in earlier came out with their mystery grab bags and I heard a few shrieks when Regal Estate Agnes was unwrapped in the $60 bags. By the time I got in the room, they were down to $25 and $30 bags. I picked the $30 and received a Pierre head, a turq scarf for him, the set of Sand luggage and the dress from the "name eludes me now" Poppy. Not a bad bargain for $30.
I know better pictures are out there but here are mine from the room of the 2011 Convention collection. I am personally in love with the bright hues of a few of the dolls.
Also a quick picture of the line up while we waited.
After a quick snack I went back to check out the Raffle and Competition Room. There were 4 large amazing dioramas set up and I tried to capture what I could of the mood. There are such talented people in the doll world.
Unfortunately, there were no credits yet on the sets so I hope to find out who the artists are after and post them.
More after dinner as I have to get ready now.
