You may wonder why dolls are getting their own post but I attended two doll meets at the convention and I carried a doll around for at least part of the day.
This was my first BJD meet, I had heard about it online but I am not active in the bjd community so it was a bit awkward for me. I was not anticipating such a large meet. Everyone seemed fairly nice, and the dollfie dreams were better received then I thought they would be but I think my Ante, Marie stole the show.
Luckily, my Fairyland Puki Piki arrived on Friday even though she had only been with me a day she came too and I even managed to find clothes small enough for her to cosplay in. Before and after shots
Impromptu meet- There was supposed to be a pullip panel which got canceled then there was supposed to be a meet which never really came together so I basically decided I was having a pullip meet come hell or high water so I stopped and talked to everyone carrying a pullip that I seen at the con.
I think we eventually had five or six people then we snatched a nearby person that we spotted walking by with a bjd for even more dolly goodness. I felt very at home as we eventually ended up with four Papins lol. I broke Joyette’s leg during the convention but I have already fixed it.
I seen lots of people carrying around bjds at the con. Here are some of the ones I seen around..
When I was getting ready to get on the escalator while carrying Ryomou I bumped into a gentlemen with a very lovely volks bjd he had named Charlotte. Of all the bjds I seen at the con she was my very favorite.
Carrying Dolls- After the bjd meet I decided that my partner in crime and I would both be carrying the Dollfie Dreams around. The reactions were mostly positive lots of people seemed very interested in them, I even got an offer from someone wanting to buy Ryomou which I politely turned down (of course). DDs are not that heavy but my wrists were very sorry after carrying Ryomou around for several hours.
We got the most stares when we went to go get lunch in the food court mostly because we had to walk through an actual mall to get there but it was still worth it.
