2017 Convention Couture Barbie Doll from the Paris Fashion Doll Festival

This week the first European convention doll is taking place. The Paris Fashion Doll Festival is one of the oldest doll conventions in Europe and instead of a gala dinner it holds a gala luncheon. This years luncheon has just taken place so we got a chance to see the first convention doll of the year.

Her name is Convention Couture Barbie Doll and here are some detailed pictures of her via Alessandro Gatti and Thomas Bartholomew Maffei. Thank you so much guys for this. :* :*

I have to admit I like her. I know a lot of people are complaining that she is not convention worthy, but I find her cute and stylish.
What do you think of her?

2014 Fashion Dolls Shows

The Barbie in Holland blog has gathered info about a lot of Barbie conventions and here are two that I’m really interested in.

Barbie In Holland Show March 9, 2014 at the Van der Valk Hotel Haarlem Zuid.

Hamburger Barbie Fashion Doll Convention May 3, 2014.

They both are buy and sell events but I would really love to attend them. Besides them in Europe we have Paris Fashion Doll Show, Italian Doll Convention, Madrid Fashion Dolls Show and the Rimini Fashion Doll Convention.

Can’t wait for 2014 to come. :X I’m also attending Star Trek Destination Hamburg in February (yes, HUGE trekkie over here :D ) so 2014 will be a very full year for me. Any of you going to these conventions?
