It sounds like the evening was a huge success with lots of money raised for charity…approximately 20,000 Euros!!

The end of the evening brought the anticipated convention doll reveal!  Many were thinking it was time for a brunette articulated silkstone…and they were proven correct.

The Sales Room

This will be my last Paris Fashion Doll Festival report as I finish up my stint of co-blogging with Dutch Barbie World.  As I finish up this blog post, Rogier is making his way back home with a lot of goodies he picked up at the festival.  I am sure he will give us his overall impressions when he has a chance to unpack and unwind.  I hope you all have enjoyed these R&R ( Rogier and Rebecca…perhaps a new blog down the road LOL!) reports.

There was a final Sybarite offering from Superdoll Saturday and those intrepid enough to get up super early and stand in line, were able to get her.  She had an edition size of 30.  Very limited indeed.  Her name is Meringue.

The last event of this Paris festival was the sales room and by the look of Rogier’s photos, there was much to look at and choose from.  Many OOAK artists came to show off their talents.  There were two offerings from the popular 16 inch doll line Numina
