Only five months to PUDDLE 2014! Time to start thinking about whether you are attending and which contests to enter. New this year is a Best in Theme contest. The winner will receive a mint Kuhn Pullip! (The doll was given to TrueFAn by Groove USA to review and she is donating her to PUDDLE.) The winning entry may also be an entry in one of the traditional contests, or it may be something entirely new (like a rainbow diorama for dolls to pose against). Use your imagination and you may win!

See the website for more information about PUDDLE ( or join the forum if you are seeking a ride, riders, or roommates ( If you’d like to receive email updates, send TrueFan your email address. 

Also, if you make things to sell, we are always looking for new vendors! As always, please let TrueFan know if you have questions.

Go buy the Winter 2013 issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly! There is a four-page spread on last year's Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event. We are lucky because it's the 10-year anniversary issue. Thank you to FDQ for publishing the article and photos.

Also buy the November 2013 issue of Doll Collector magazine. It contains coverage of PUDDLE 2013 plus photos from the event taken by CornflowerBlue and many of the photo contest entries. Thank you to Doll Collector for great coverage.

Thank you to everyone who attended for another great Pullip and Dal Doll Lovers Event. We raised the most ever for our charity group Willowbrook Wildlife Center - over $700! It was so high this year thanks to the donation of five auction dolls from GROOVE USA and from generous buying of tickets sales by all of you. Photos of the event are starting to pop in various places. If anyone has any feedback and suggestions for next year's event, please let me know. We are mulling over a theme, a date, and a location.
