There were three big people in attendance and twelve little people, the little people being dolls. Modern Wizard brought three small Soom Fairy Legends dolls:
|Left to right: Ginevra (an Aenigma girl), Mellifer (a Metato in orange)|
and Flower (a Kremer wearing purple)
Lyrajean brought the largest and most varied contingent: three Volks dolls, one CP Luts, one Angel Region and one Iplehouse:
|Lyrajean's crew: a Volks F36 (with samurai cutlery), a CP Lutz sleeping elf |
Chiwoo (a defanged vampire head), Iplehouse EID Asa, a Volks old F14,
a Volks YoSD Kira with Four Sisters head, and an Angel Region Kai
Vermont Chick (aka balljointedwoman) brought three Iplehouse dolls. People have come to expect this of me. I do, however, collect other dolls. Once in a blue moon I even bring one to a meet-up.
|Beatrice (an Iplehouse nYID Bianca making her second meet-up |
appearance), Iplehouse SID Shane, and Jillian (an Iplehouse nYID Audrey)
I brought extra wigs to the meet-up, so the Iples had fun changing their looks:
|Asa wearing Shane's wig, a Monique Gold Jo-Jo. Lyrajean, who has|
lived in Japan, says this is typical of the color Japanese young people
dye their hair once they finish school. Who knew?
|Shane and Jillian exchange their reds for pure white. Both wigs|
|Beatrice looking pretty and pouty in Asa's Iplehouse wig.|
We will get together again in two months, provided there are at least three people interested in meeting. If Lyrajean moves to Seattle, we may have difficulty reaching our quota. I know there are other doll collectors in the area. We'd love to have you join us.

Last week a Soom Super Gem Quartz Ice Dragon that I ordered in August was delivered. I wish I could say that I am absolutely crazed with joy over his arrival, but the fact is, he leaves me cold. He does have a nice face, but I really wish I hadn't spent the money. I have already listed him on Den of Angels. Except for the occasional wig or eyes, he's my last venture into Soom-dom.
|Dragon legs and ice-blue talons. What was I thinking?|
(They look like chicken feet.)
|He's not bad looking, though.|
I also purchased a postal scale this week, so I can finally begin listing dolls for sale on e-bay. Lots of old vinyls need to find new homes. Now I need shipping boxes.
