Vermont Doll Lovers Meet-Up December 2015

Six of us met yesterday at the Brownell Library in Essex Junction to celebrate an early Christmas with our dolls. (ModernWizard has also posted the meeting at http://vtdolllovers.blogspot.com/2015/12/vermont-doll-lovers-december-meetup.html.)  The dolls were in an especially festive mood, inspired no doubt by their holiday attire and a number of Christmas trees. Let's look in on the festivities:
ModernWizard's Araminthe and Sardonix enjoy snacks with a bear-y friend. Scarves and Sardonix's hat were intended to dress wine bottles.
Here we come a-caroling: my MiniFees Lishe, Shushu and Mirwen, dressed in fashions from Wilde Imagination and wearing Iplehouse boots. LittleFee Ante Elf looks on.
Dashing through the snow: my Soom Quartz and FeePle65 Siean cozy up for a sleigh ride. A better look at the sleigh (from Plow and Hearth) below:
I don't know if they started out with a horse or a reindeer pulling the sleigh, but the LittleFee elves (Shine, Star and L'il Frost, otherwise known as Juri 13, Ante Elf and Soso) seem to have magicked it away.
Lyrajean also brought a sleigh. Riding in hers are her two Spiritdoll Bastet cats, with Petite Ai Sariel in front. Volks YoSD Kira and an artBimong Meronica round out the group.
Another look at Meronica. I'm very tempted to add one of these to my collection as she would fit in well with my Raccoon Doll girls. Lyrajean also brought her Volks Chiyo (not pictured), a new U-noa Lusis (red lips, below) and her U-noa Sist:
DragonGems' Russell, whose sweater started life as a Christmas sock, compares dolls with ModernWizard's Submit.
Melface's U-noa L-Bi competes with her MiniFee Rin for the most colorful Christmas sweater. Seated are her Dollzone Raphael, Doll Chateau Charles and SoulDoll Cubarem.
Above is a look at DC Charles in all his glorious full length, to prove he can indeed stand unaided, albeit not for very long.  I wish I had taken a closer photo of his fabulous body painting/tattoo work. Hiding behind him is Melface's Dream High Studio Hiro, he of the jointed hands. To the right is a lady elf sculpted by DragonGems.
Melface acquired her Luts Honey Delf Centaur (Choco Cookie version) without a head. I hope she finds one to match that lovely light tan resin.
Up in the tree top, Dollpamm Bebe Poyo. She belongs to Melface.
Another candidate in the colorful Christmas sweater contest: Shannon's Doll Chateau Bella.
Melface's LittleFee Lewi joined the party late, as Shannon was still knitting his sweater. I picked up some knitting pointers from her as she worked. Thanks, Shannon!
Lyrajean's Luts Delf Chiwoo Vampire is having a melancholy Christmas, although whether it's because she's had her fangs removed or because Lyrajean is putting her up for sale, she isn't saying. Also up for sale (but not pictured) is her Soom Sabik.
And we heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, 
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!

    1. We did, thank you! I think I'll have to stock up on "ugly" sweaters for next year's Christmas event. :)
