Thanks to a Facebook friend of mine, Susannah Williams, I found out about this massive doll collection that is being auctioned online on June 8th. OH. MY. GOD!!!! Sooooooooo many gorgeous girls! Sindy, Barbie from all ages, rare Barbie store displays, Jem, Tressy, Ashton Drake, Bild Lilli, vintage German toys and doll houses, you name it.
Check out THIS LINK (CLICK) and browse through 15 pages of pure gold. I think some of the lots are under valued so good luck to anyone bidding. Yes, they do ship internationaly so good luck!!
Yes, i know I’m late to the party, but… Well, I have no excuse. I hope you’ll excuse me for this and enjoy the article.
After the Fashion Show ended we went straight to the cocktail party and sipped some champagne and enjoyed some fresh sea food apetizers. Really yummy! We mingled and waited for the Gala Dinner as everybody was getting more and more anctious to see the convention doll.
Soon after we were welcomed in the ballroom that looked so chic and festive. This year they completley change the set up and in the middle of the room there was a catwalk so that everybody could see Mario and Gianni when they did their presentations. Such a good idea!
My table host was, as always, my lovely Monica and lots of gifts were waiting for us. She made us some very cute dolls in mod fashions. I got the Asian one. There also was a beautiful centerpice made by Magia 2000 themselves.
The Gala Dinner wa sa lot of fun. We had Liza Minelli and Marylin Monroe visit us and we also the ladies from Dynamo Camp on stage as they received a check for 20,000 euros from the ebay charity. I have to admit the small clip that presented their camp and their work really touched me and that’s why I wasn’t prepared for the moment when Mario announced that Rogier and I won the Special IDC award for our blogs. OMG! I was floored. I really was. I know there’s a lot of controversy around me and there are people that, let’s just say, don’t like me, so I honestly was not expecting this.
The last, but not the least, award of the night was for the Fashion Show. My darling Monica won the famale one for her great Curvy Fashionistas impersonation.
And then… The convention doll was presented. Sorry for the crappy video, but that’s all I could film. I do need to get a decent camera next convention so I can properly film and take pictures.
The night ended with a SUPER fun dance party. We could have danced the entire night but the rooms had to prepared for the Sales Room the next morning so at around 2 o’clock we went to bed.
The next morning I woke up early, packed my bags and went straight down to the Sales Room. I did a live video on Facebook about it so check it out below.
As always there were a lot of great deals and lots of OOAK artists. Below is a HUGE gallery of images that I hope you’ll enjoy. After I took the images I went straight to the airport as it was time to go back home. Can’t wait for the 2017 IDC especially because the theme is so much fun: IDC Goes Wedding. I’m so bringing my wedding dress with me. Hahaha!
The 2016 Look Barbie dolls are starting to show up in stores and here are some IRL images via Instagram user only_love_barbie. I do wish they would have kept the Steffie facemold on the Boho girl, but she is cute none the less.
The Barbie Style Instagram account just published this image that shows a very beautiful AA curvy articulated body? Could this mean we we’ll be getting it in the next wave of Fashionistas? Maybe even a tall and a petite articulated body?
This year is all about the Presidential elections in the US so Barbie is celebrating this with some cute 2 doll packs. They are available on Amazon. Just click the names and you’ll be directed to the sales page on Amazon.
The ebay Charity auction for the 2016 Italian Doll Convention has started and it’s FULL of amazing dolls. The charity will benefit Dynamo Camp, a wonderful place that offers recreative therapy for children.
Check out the dolls below and click on each title to go to the auctions. I’ll edit this article as more dolls will be added.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War is soon going to be released so Spanish artist Nimarogue has created this absolutely incredible Ravenna OOAK Barbie doll. Those details!! OMG! I just can’t…
Ready for the takeover of the kingdom through the magic mirror, she’s a wicked vision of golden opulence. Wearing a re-creation of the costume seen in the movie designed by three times Academy Award Collen Atwood, this devourer of souls played by talented Charlize Theron is as power hungry as she is evil. Iconic collar feathered cape, pointed golden crown and braided updo style her dramatic regal attire to make sure she’s the fairest of them all

2016 Portuguese Doll Convention has ended but the ebay Charity Auction has just started. Take a look at the links below and bid bid bid for these beauties as all the money will go the wonderful SOS Children’s Village charity.
Btw, I do love the fact that Mattel has started donating prototypes to these charities. Prototypes are so important to a lot of collectors so it’s so much fun that you can win such a doll and also contribute to a good cause.
