Resin Hearts BJD Convention

October 21, 2016

So waaayyy back in the beginning of August, I received a message through my Etsy shop from Leslie, one of the organizers of the Resin Hearts Balljointeddoll Convention in San Jose, California, inviting me to be a vendor at their Dolloween Con on Saturday, October 22, 2016. ” WOW!  What an honor!” I thought and danced around my sewing room with the thrill of the invitation.  Unfortunately, I am not able to attend as a vendor because of lack of funds (we were going on our family vacation to Topsail Island in just over a week after I received the message) and the distance- I live in Ohio and California is on the other side of the country- and work- we are super busy right now and taking more time off would be frowned upon.  Since I was unable to attend, I had the option to donate some of the items I sell in my shop for contest and door prizes.  I jumped on the opportunity and made six ensembles for three different sizes- two ensembles in each size. It was fun coming up with entire outfits (sans shoes) and I enjoyed the process.  I think I may do something like this for some of my listings starting in the new year.  They also needed a banner and a bio along with photos of the items I was donating and that brought me to another dilemma: earlier this year my old laptop died and along with it went the originals of my old banner for my Etsy shop, so I solved the problem by deciding I wanted a new banner anyway.  I enlisted the help of my dear friend Ban Sidhe who is an absolute whiz with photo manipulation!  She made me my gorgeous new banner which I will hopefully have up in my shop this weekend.

So, if you’re in the San Jose area on Saturday, October 22, 2016 check out the Resin Hearts Dolloween Convention at the Santa Clara County Fair Grounds.  The con runs from 9am to 7pm.  For more details visit their blog here: Resin Hearts

I also did something a little different with my packaging and I think this is how I will be packaging my doll clothes from now on.

  1. Aw, so cute! I love the level of detail, and the accessories (like the beach bag)! They really bring the outfits to life.

    Hope you’re able to attend next year!
