That was today’s dinner event theme. So fun to see all the Fairytale costumes (I didn’t take enough pictures, so we’re relying on JennFL for those). I LOVED our table centerpiece! It was the dumbo ride from Disneyland but it was built over a cemetary and a great big black monster hand was busting up through the floor and tipping the ride over and the little kids were all falling out and the moms on the side were screaming in terror. Such a perfect & creative idea for tonight’s theme!
There was also a Charity auction tonight and again JennFL actually took shots of all those dolls. I just didn’t want to fight with the people checking them out to actually bid on them, so I stayed away from the table. There were some beautiful ones and some great outfits too! I believe the 2 biggest fundraisers for the night were Randall Craig’s OOAK Monogram that was rerooted by Rob and if I remember right she went for about $800. Then the final doll of the night was by the Italian designers Maggia 2000 (Mario & Gianni). They were so sweet and read that the convention theme was “Wizard of Oz” and created an elaborate themed outfit with a gold road going up the bodice of the gown and then realized when the got here that that is the theme for 2011’s IFDC and that this year it was “Wonderful World of Disney”. But either way it was an amazing doll (looked to me like a redone Metal Maven Vanessa) and an amazing outfit and the final bid was about $1800.
Okay, off to bed now because somehow I got talked into going to breakfast at 8am???? I don’t know if I really realized what I was saying, LOL. But we’re going early so we can be back before the salesroom and raffle room closes. Then the raffle starts about 2:30 and hopefully I get another Momoko!
