Well I woke up today VERY excited, so of course I had to share with all of you! So after a long day yesterday, filled with deliberating, pros & cons lists, internet searches and emails back and forth to my friend JennFL, I’ve made a decision…. I will be attending IDEX at the end of this month!!
I know, totally unexpected & oh-so spontaneous – it kind of reminds me of deciding to fly out for the NY Toy Fair 2 years ago, LOL. I had originally planned on going out to visit Jenn and attend a Toy Fair party there with lots of other collectors next month, but thought: why not go this month and see tons of dolls in person? So that’s what I’ll be doing! Plus it gives me the opportunity to cover lots of the other lines of dolls for you and for the other blog I write for (Fashion Doll Review). The exhibitor list is really huge! https://www.regonline.com/builder/site/tab1.aspx?EventID=856632
So there you go – I will be flying out on a Wednesday, spending 2 days hitting up Orlando with Jenn and spending time with several other dolly friends out there (Hey Sugey, Frank, Peter & David!!) as well as spending a day at Universal to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m told the Butter Beer there is amazing!
The workshops I’m attending are:
High Tea with Berdine Creedy (attending in place for a friend)
Building sets for the camera (set building for doll photography – see I’m trying to improve my backgrounds for you, LOL)
Ice Cream Social with Ellowyne Wilde
Tonner’s Sunday Breakfast
As far as I know they’re not sold out & I am submitting my payments tomorrow, so it seems like I’ll have no trouble getting in. So there you go folks! I’ll post tons of pictures from many lines of dolls, including Integrity, and hopefully pick up some good stuff at “Retail Alley”. So Florida (and all you gators) here I come!
