After the fabulous Opening Gala, it was time for attendees to take a look at what would be available in the sales room on Friday. Many OOAK doll artists were present. Festival attendees were not allowed to purchase at this event but they could have things set aside for purchase when the sales room officially opened on Friday.
Magia 2000: Attendees drew numbers to select some of these amazing beauties!!
And some amazing acrylic display walls by Sheree
We think there was definitely something for everyone in this sales room!
One of my favorite things about being part of the collecting community is discovering amazing OOAK fashions for our diminutive divas. This past June, Pam Seeman of Paintbox Designs brought her fabulous fashions to the National Barbie Convention for the first time. I think it is fair to say she and her fashions were a huge hit. Paintbox Designs has been a fixture at Fashion Royalty convention but this year was the first time we had the pleasure of seeing and purchasing her fashions for Ms. Barbie. I must have spent a good thirty minutes at her table…along with a whole host of other shoppers and walked away with some beautiful OOAK outfits. I adore the floaty rose fabric she used for the skirt of Dasha’s dress. Loni’s dress is one of her signature designs and it never disappoints. I must have this design in at least three different colors. You can find Pam and Paintbox Designs at http://www.paintboxdesigns.net/index.html
