Because of overcast skies in Michigan and preparations for DragonCon, it hasn't been possible to take and post pictures of the latest doll family additions. Outdoor conditions in Atlanta this week haven't been much better, so in the interests of documentation, i'm posting these poor pictures taken in the Atlanta Marriott on Friday and Saturday. i was hoping for meetup pictures of other peoples' dolls, but that didn't pan out. This isn't all that surprising; this convention is huge, spans three hotels and has so many crowds, events, and tracks of programming that no one can do everything, or even get to everything they plan.
Above, meet my new Leibchen, Enara, holding the cool Hellboy and Abe Sapien Quees we got from the Dark Horse people. Below, a poorly lit shot of all the dolls left to right:
Izarra (DollsTown Yeondu), Enara, Argi (OrientDoll Ye), Bero (Hypermaniac Na-Hu), Amaia (Custom House St. Mina), and Esti (ElfDoll Min Del Re).
While i was setting up the portrait several people came by to look at and ask about the dolls. One person asked me about toting them to the Marriott, and i told her they looked a little horrific packed into the big doll carrier. They arrived down here responsibly packed with padding in three carriers, but it is a crowded and steep walk from the Day's Inn to the convention hotels, and i carefully packed them all in my largest carrier. As i repacked them i rearranged them for this photo inspired by the conversation... Esti did not actually travel anywhere wedged under Bero's hefty resin butt. No dolls were harmed in the making of this photo.
