I picked this photo because I took it, and also it is the only one I am really happy with out of the ton I took ^^; the rest of the photos submitted were taken by my team members ^o^/
I took part in 2007 the blythe beauty contest with Daisy and Clover, had to skip last year since I was too busy with other non doll related stuff. For this year, I was very very lucky to be able to team up with 2 very talented ladies, Yuki and Mai who are like me, immigrants from other countries to Canada!
When I checked my computer and saw the messages left for me before we head out to Ikea, I whooped so loudly to my husband that I’m sure the neighbours heard me ^^; I had stupidly left my phone upstairs and couldn’t hear it ringing when I was cooking/having dinner…

This is the first time I worked with 2 partners on a custom doll and clothing design and it was a truly interesting and challenging experience — in a really good way! Each of us had great ideas to contribute and worked really hard to make Glacier Lily come to life :) The experience we gained is priceless, and to be able to get into finals is a dream come true! This year the announcement was made without an early e-mail notification, so the three of us were totally caught off guard, what a wonderful surprise!
I will write in more details about this project soon! Meanwhile, here are some photos which we submitted.
