Souvenirs at BarbieCon

Of course, it wouldn’t be doll convention without the loot, right? As an added advantage at our particular table, we were also gifted by tablemates with the coolest Barbie accessories for your iPhone, iPad and a wallet/organizer, Barbie Scarf and rhinestone ear buds, as well as jewelry, candy, champagne and a delightful assortment of goodies – they were quite generous and unforgettably fun. Here’s a … Read More Souvenirs at BarbieCon

New Year’s Eve in Nashville at BarbieCon

Now what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t wrap up the whole event? Well, I have lots to write about attending conventions and I’ll save that for a separate post, but rest assured, The Barbie National Convention brought it. It has to be one of the most professional and sharply planned events out there. By the way…if you want to see … Read More New Year’s Eve in Nashville at BarbieCon

The Salesroom at BarbieCon

This is another one of those posts where the images do all the talking…enjoy the fabulous eye candy. I certainly did…

Jingle Bells Dinner at BarbieCon

An evening of cool jingles, funny sweaters…and of course, Barbie! The Jingle Bells Dinner also hosted the Live Auction, raising thousands for Children’s Hospital – now that is giving!

The Fashion Show at BarbieCon

The highlight for me during Barbie events is the Fashion Show. Sure, it’s silly…but it’s also infectious fun and loads of laughter and energy. There’s no shortage of pizzazz with this group – it’s fun, pure, pink and simple. Anyone who doesn’t enjoy it must have a heart of black rock. These are people who love their dolls…there can be no question about that…

The Competition at BarbieCon

First and foremost – apologies to the owners and artists – I just didn’t get my Lois Lane on very well for this…but after waiting in line, I just wanted to see some eye candy, and name-noting just wasn’t on my agenda. I was just a bit disappointed with the competition, as I am with most convention competitions because of lack of participation – but … Read More The Competition at BarbieCon

My Funny Valentine Luncheon at BarbieCon

There’s no denying a well-organized event…and in this of the first seated meals, the Steering Committee and Mattel pulled out all the stops. I am always entertained just like a little giggling girl when I come across musicals, and Barbie’s musical skit was well-played – even taking advantage of some of the silliness we have all grown to love with America’s favorite teen fashion … Read More My Funny Valentine Luncheon at BarbieCon

Halloween Reception at BarbieCon

A vast room, lots of Barbie eye candy by some of the most respected names in Barbie…not alot of costumes for such a great theme, but to each his/her own, I suppose…you would have been beaten over the head with a Betsy McCall doll for not wearing a costume at a Tonner Convention…but this is its own world, and I am only a spectator … Read More Halloween Reception at BarbieCon

Magia 2000 at BarbieCon

Ah, my Darlings…sue me, I love these guys with all my heart. Magia 2000 weaves a spell unlike many – they are delightful, talented, and have a great sense of fashion…10 Corso Como, anyone?   Their preview was a moment…and you cannot escape the colors and charm…

NiniMomo at BarbieCon

More eye candy, this time from THE Pageant to end all…NiniMomo (or ninimomo or Ninimomo – I can’t figure it out with one good eye, Puddings). Despite my misunderstanding of spelling, the work that comes from this duo is nothing short of miraculous in 1:6 scale…they must dream on a bed of beading needles…  

Artist Creations at BarbieCon

I’ll let the pics speak for themselves…Artist Creations, the 2014 Barbie National Convention Souvenir Designer – these are dolls from their preview. Remember, it’s 1:6 scale, folks… These guys look like Mafioso…but they are really just big ol’ teddy bears…
