Blythe con 20 june 2011 flew by quickly! I’m still in disbelief that it’s over! At the same time I thank all the hardworking organizers, attendees, vendors, sponsors and everyone who made it possible!
I do have some items left over but currently Candapost is on strike so I cannot sell overseas it until they’re back in operation… Sorry for the inconvenience :(
Also thank Killertomato (Yuki), for suggesting we share a booth in the first place, Bluestarbaby (Jade) who roomed with me and was a great pleasure to hang out with! Otherwise I might have just missed this Blythe con (due to sheer terror LOL)!
I took a LOT of photos, so if you’re interested in blythes and the people who love blythes, please do check this link for all photos I tagged with blytheconportland, also you can check out the BlytheCon 2011 flickr group for photos from everyone who attended!
I will also pick selected photos which I love to showcase in no particular order in this post :)
Our room at Ace hotel, each and every room is different! I’m glad we got a rather neat room, I enjoyed living there, despite choppy internet during some of the times. By the end of the 5 days tho I’m ready to go home :P It’s a little troublesome to have to get a key to use the bathroom outside LOL!
Bluestarbaby (Jade)’s set up ^^
Many creative ways to carry the dolls around :D
Many of us are friends who talked online for years, some we met for the first time at this con, or have met a few years back elsewhere :)
Himitsu helped out at my booth lol
Jade’s sweet Neris was there to help at her booth too!
Belinda, my red hair kenner hangs out with SuperJunk (Melissa)’s girls in the super cool carrier bag :3
Curry and Pietra, a couple of my favorite customs by my favorite doll peeps Melissa and Paul of puchicollective <3
The day before the actual Blythe Con, we attended an Early bird meet organised by Lynne (Happibug)
Many awesome custom girls!
This girl caught my attention and stole my heart!!! She’s a beautiful custom girl by G♥Baby ^o^/
Neris so pretty!
It was my first time in Portland, and Bluestarbaby (Jade) had already been to Portland a few times, so I was rather dependent on her to get around (oops) but I have quite a bad sense of direction as well so I am very thankful that I had a guide who share similar interests!
We see many mustaches for sale… It was amusing! come to think of it maybe I should have bought some as souvenirs :P
Jade wore a bright colours so I won’t miss her lol
We were taking public transit – via streetcar, to get around on Saturday and was directed to 23rd street by a friendly local waiting at one of the stops :) He also recommended Papa Hayden, which we enjoyed very much!
I think Himitsu already decided what she wants to eat…
Chocolate macaroon with mint and chocolate chip ice-cream (Jade finished it cos I found it too sweet lol)
After food abuse, we went and walk a bit more as the weather started to turn nicer — it was drizzling most of the day before…
The paper source had so much evil temptations :P but unfortunately by now me and Jade are feeling kinda ouch from our shopping so we walked out buying nothing!!!
flowers display, real or fake?
I think Himitsu had a great time, so did I! :) I felt bad when I was sewing a lot for the Blythe Con, and the dollfie girls were neglected >_<
Water park near Saturday Market
Okay I have photos from some of the days before and after the con to go thru next! Thanks for looking!
