NBDCC 2011–The Competition Room

There is so much to do at the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention.  We had 6 main events over 4 days that people attend plus a multitude of workshops and “talks”.  One of the most popular “extra” events is the Competition Room.  Every year the convention has a theme and that theme typically drives the competition ideas.  This year the theme were Ken and  Spring Break 1961.  Here are a few examples of what you could see in the competition room.

To all the people who participated in competition this year, You are simply amazing!  There was so much talent in that competition room it was ridiculous.  Let’s also not forget that to put this competition room together and keep it properly supervised during viewing, you need many volunteers.  A big thank you to the many, many volunteers who gave up some of their precious convention shopping and visiting time to volunteer.  Winking smile
