Barbie for big girls.

NBDCC 2011–The Fashion Show

I am jumping a bit ahead in the schedule because I was excited to share these photos.  The Fashion Show at NBDCC is always a favorite.  Crowds start to gather at least 30 minutes before the door opens for good seats.  If you are a photographer, you want to scope out the best vantage sites early.  While I wish I had sat in a spot that did not have the auction dolls in the foreground (they have never had the live auction held after the fashion show before so dolls were never there), I was generally happy with my vantage point for photos.  I especially liked the fact that I could catch the wonderful expressions from the Mattel crowd in a number of my photos.  They looked like they were really enjoying the show and I hope so as the show is really a way of showing them how much we love what they do.

Here are a few of my favorites from the show.

Stan – how adorable is he!  And…Bill Greening is smiling in the bottom corner.


Loved her attitude!!


Adorable Citris Obsession



Steven Frasier’s daughter stole the show with her outfit.  She was fantastic on the runway!


The Palm Beach entries were a huge crowd pleaser…….all strutted to the theme from Austin Powers.  It was fabulous!




Congratulations to all the organizers of and participants in the fashion show.  It was a wonderful event!

    • It was an absolute pleasure meeting you too Ms. Debra! Your lovely personality was a complete positive infussion to my convention experience and I will never forget that. I can’t wait to photograph your lovely purses for future blog posts. Now….if my boxes would ever arrive from convention, I could do that! I am not a patient person and waiting for these boxes of convention goodies is the absolute worst. LOL!
