Hi guys! Finally home and finally rested. I had a blast at this year’s IDC! Such a fun convention. Lots and lots of dear collector friends, lots of activities and such a fun gala dinner. I’m so excited that I got to spend time with my dear friends Ibrahim, Simon from DollObservers.com (he was actually “crowned” my convention husband ), Ile (the most gorgeous mommy to be), Nicoletta (our table host), Monica and the great gand from the Coleccionistas de Fashion Dolls en Madrid Club (i’ll soon have more info about the Official Barbie Convention in Madrid), my sweet, sweet Francesco from Teddysdollshop.com, the amazing Mario and Ginanni from Magia 2000, Alessandro and Giuseppe from Artist’s Creations and all the amazing collectors that made this convention such a success!
Some of the most important moments from this convention were, just like last year, the sneak peaks and exclusive info about several Barbie Collector dolls. First let me just say that I belive Bob Mackie is having a strong comeback in the Barbie community. There was a video interview with him, his dolls were displayed in the sales room and an upcoming doll made by him was sneak peaked. So get ready for some Bob Mackie craziness!
Right now let’s talk about the exclusive info we got at this convention.
1. We got to see the new AA Silkstone in a movie that will also be uploaded on the official BC YouTube channel.
2. This is the dress the new Jennifer Lopez Barbie will be wearing. I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the doll as I had just stepped out and go back to the table a little bit too late.
3. There were also images with the new Audrey Hepburn dolls but you already know how they’ll look. The Givenchy dress from Sabrina will be a Silkstone and the one from Roman Holiday will a Pink Label.
4. There was a presenatation of the Herve Leger set but I MISSED IT!!! I’m so pissed off… I’ll try to find a picture soon.
As we are talking about exclusive info I have to show you an amazing Sybarite prototype that Charles and Desmond from Superdoll shared with Simon and I. She is just breathtaking! I’m not a Sybarite collector but I think Charles managed to convince me that I should really have at least one in my collection. You can’t imagine the details, the love and the overall care for quality of these dolls. And the photos I’ve seen online don’t do them justice.
So that’s all the info from IDC 2013. As I said, I’ll upload soon the videos from the gala dinner but now I’ll just let you enjoy some images that were made by Lella Pastrochhio. Thak you dear for letting me use your images! You can see almost 300 images on her Facebook page.
