The Tonner Convention

Well everyone I've had time to rest and relax a bit, now I'm going to let you all know that I had a wonderful time at the Tonner Halloween Convention. I'm not going to do a full blog tonight but I do want to share with you all that I won 2nd place for one of my designs. This was my first con and my first entry. I think If I spend a bit more time on my next entry I may win 1st place. So I'm going to share some pics with you all. I had a lot of fun making this dress. It reminds me of what San Francisco looks like in the rain, a bit grey but it sparkles. Part of this dolls story is that she lives in San Francisco, in her grandmothers old Victorian. I always imagine that she is a bit like me, she loves this city and can find beauty here in the most interesting things. If you've seen San Francisco in the rain you know what I'm talking about. 

 Ellowyne at he competition, she looked good standing there I was just proud that I had accomplished this. 

One of the other entries, I thought this one was fun cuz she was wearing a duck tape dress, something Prudence would do. 
 The 1st place winners, I liked this one too, because it was a homage to San Francisco too, and the dresses were beautiful.
