This weekend the Convención Nacional de coleccionistas de Barbie en España 2014 took place in Madrid and on Saturday the beautiful convention doll was unveiled. Her name is “Diva Glam” and she was created by artist duo Iconic Dolls.
I love her dress and package. Such a beautiful doll!
I also like very much the center pieces created by Juanjo Mellado that were made to resemble dresses and styles from the 80s. Btw, have I ever told you I LOVE the 80s? Actually the 80s Barbie dolls were the ones that made me start collecting Barbie dolls so for me that era has a special place in my heart. Don’t forget to like my 80s Barbie Page on Facebook!
Aren’t they gorgeous? Check out El Blog De Ken for more images of the center pieces and other info about this convention.
Gorgeous has a new name: Rose Royal OOAK Barbie by Paco Alcaide! This amazing doll has been created for the charity at the Madrid Fashion Doll Show 2013 and the creator is also the one that helped create the convention doll. Here’s a great interview (it’s in Spanish) with Paco: LINK.
Can’t wait to see the convention doll. I’m so very sorry I will not be able to attend the convention but if you are going be sure to check out my presentation about doll blogging that will take place via Skype, on Saturday, September 14th, at 16:30 Madrid time. I was supposed to do this presentation live but I can’t be there physically. So you’ll just have to enjoy me via Skype. Monica will translate the presentation and I’ll also upload it here after the convention has finished.
