Dolls Party in New York 4, day 2

And now a report from the second day of NY Dolpa 4.

The second day opening was scheduled at 10:30, so we arrived at 9:44 to be sure to get some chance of buying limited things on sale that we were not able to preorder.

Of course even at 9:44 there was a huge line standing outside of FIT this time :O

Finally we are in, but there is still a huge line, this time to the cashier. While standing in line outside we got "reservation tickets" for limited Alice clothes, so Oksana joined this line too.

Meantime I walked around taking picture of other dolls and their owners.

Also in a corner some older "limited edition" dolls were setup for a book signing ceremony. The book was "Super dollfie photo album 2009" and called "Another yourself", it included a lot of pictures and the dolls were setup to replicate some of those pictures.

Then an FDQ lottery was held where I won The Hatter.

And after that we moved to the photo space to take pictures of our dolls in various settings.

Somebody's huge loot!

Another sub-event started soon, called "gift exchange". Everybody lined into a big circle around the hall.

People took gifts they brought with themselves in hands and started to sing "Happy un-birthday to us" passing the gifts to a person at the right and taking a gift from a person at the left. Once the song stopped whatever you ended up with in your hands was your present.
We ended up with some hand-made SD13 khaki pants and a doll drinking set.

Un-birthday because VOLKS USA was actoully founded on November 19th, but sice US Dolpa only happens once a year it was decided to celebrate it all together.

Another romantic scene.

After the gift exchange people that ordered SD makeup workshop moved to the designated tables and started to prepare.

At the workshop (that we did not attend) they were taught of how to do doll make-up, draw face features and so on for two hours.

Two sets of tools were available for face features. A marker or a brush.

Meanwhile other VOLKS employees were busy wandering around the hall signing all posters.

The boy turned out to be quite popular with the girls and was cheating on his girlfriend left and right.

The final speech by the VOLKS President. There he also announced that all banners and everything will be given away.

IMG_7475
Since there were more people wanting the stuff that there were particular pieces, a game of rock-paper-scissors (Jan-Ken-Pun)was played for everything. I wanted The Hatter banner a lot, but did not win.

Final battle between two finalists for one of the banners.

And then everybody packed and went home.

It was great time. Hopefully we'll be able to attend such events in the future too.
