OOAK Doll Festival–Saturday Night Dinner

After the excitement of the mornings design challenge, festival attendees had lunch on their own and an afternoon to shop some more in the sales room or have some well deserved free time.  We were all anticipating the final evening event of the festival – The Diamond Jubilee diner featuring a tribute to Ninimomo.  The super talented Ninimomo team of Nik Moronese  and Marie Lebreton shared a fun video of their design process and a tribute to their loyal fans.

And they were all slightly different….same outfit but different dolls for each.  I thought that was really inventive and cool.

After a fantastic diner, it was time to unveil the Ninimomo convention doll.  Each attendee received this one too.  Yes people!!  TWO official dolls for this festival.

OOAK Doll Festival–A Sneak Peek at Live Auction

Just a note of explanation to start of the rest of the blog posts from this amazing festival.  Rogier and I work well together as a team.  For the past year I have reported for him while he was at European conventions and he has reported for me while I was attending the events in the US.  It is a brilliant system.  We learned quickly that when we are both attending the same event….not so brilliant of a system.  We apologize for the lateness of these reports as the festival ended less than a week ago but it was simply too busy to edit the images and report on events in a timely manner.  Added to that….I had to go and catch the plague. 

Now that I can breath again without hacking up a lung, We can finally report on events.  Thank you all for being patient and understanding.

Now, at the opening gala of this festival, attendees were also able to view all of the amazing live auction items that would be available to bid on at Friday nights dinner.

NBDCC 2012….A Day of OOAK Extravaganza

Tuesday was a packed day of OOAK parties.  First up was Artist Creations

Next up was Ninimomo  These are quick shots with my point and shoot.  I was given the extreme pleasure of photographing the show before it opened to the public and will have those shots up later this week.  Thank you Nick and Marie!!!

And their raffle dolls

The last show of the day was Magia2000.  They staged an honest to God fashion show for the dolls.  While very long, the show was fun.  They also handled purchasing differently this year.  You put your name in a lottery if you were interested in a doll and if your name was selected, you had the chance to purchase the doll.  I was not lucky enough to win the chance to purchase but many others were!

More photos available on my flickr.  Today is the official start to the convention.  Things will be super hectic from here on out so blogging will be more difficult.  If I don’t post in the morning….it means I was up too late the night before and I won’t even go into why that would be LOL!  The blog post will come I promise…just perhaps not so reliably.
