Austin abjd con

current song: the movie "Tron" in the background

The Austin con was great! We saw lots of people and I talked to lots of vendors. We saw Wicked Wigs, Wicked Stitchery, DenverDoll and a bunch of beautiful clothing artists and accessories' makers. I was almost tempted by a smirky mini Angel of Dream elf boy who looked better in person than in his default photo who reminded me a little of Chikara, but one super-brat is enough for the Chaos Cave.

Let's see - Talis and Nigel got little medieval outfits from PamSD and a person whose user name I didn't get. They're going to be very versatile since they can be medival or piratey depending on the accessories. Drew got a CheeryDoll dress in browns and tans (which stinks like smoke so it's out on the washing machine to be tumbled/aired-out later) and I got two pairs of msd-sized CheeryDoll socks to be shared by the minis. That's it. I only spent half the money I took and left with $100 still in my pocket. Go me.

I went with a Cheerydoll mission and spent the most time at that booth.

rat got a white one-piece bathing suit for large Tifa and a business card for someone to make some Tifa clothes for her. Her work is awesome. We know she'll be expensive but she does amazing handwork and I think she'll do the AC outfit well. It will definitely be different than the Tudor and Elizabethean work she had on display. And she has Elfdoll girls so she'll be able to fit the clothing so it will fit Tifa.

Chikara is pissed he couldn't go but he's either going to Dreamz's cookout next Saturday or the Japanese Fall Festival next Sunday.

After about two hours of shopping, we sat out at the big round tables in the lobby and chatted with lots of doll keepers for another few hours. By 2pm we were starving so a large group of DFW, Austin and Houstonites went to a restaurant for more fun and good food. I think it was after 5pm when we realized we needed to head back.

After grabbing something to eat, I immediately fell asleep like I knew I would and woke up periodically to watch Saturday night anime.

I better head off to bed now.

it was really a great fun time and thank you again for letting us ride with you guys. >.> And I thought you bought Drew Ajumapma dresses? Either way they'll look great on him and I can't wait to see him in them

Shindo and Yuki

Glad you were able to join us!

Well, CheeryDoll and AjumaPama are the same people so I just used CheeryDoll in the entry.

I don't know what the dress tag said on it, as to which company it fell under. I just know the thing still stinks of cigarette smoke after air tumbling it three times yesterday. I think we'll need to get some dryer sheets, or bum one off my mother.

I believe cherry doll and ajumapma are separate companies, but they are both carried via USA by the same dealer. cigarette smoke?
