Thanks to Jpopdolls for their wonderful donation of four wigs! A photo of three of them is attached here. If you order from Jpopdolls, please thank them for their support of PUDDLE. Here is their website:
April 1 is the deadline for the PUDDLE online photo contest, and only a few people have entered. It's going to be a nice weekend in many places - please consider taking some photos of your doll for the contest!

All you need to do is take some photos of your doll and send one (or two) to TrueFan. While there needs to be a connection to the PUDDLE theme of "turtles," it can be very remote. A turtle toy, an outfit with turtles on it, a turtle button, a doll reading The Tortoise and the Hare, a picture of a turtle or a turtle-shaped cloud in the background. And you could win a $50 gift certificate to online store Panik's Toy Box! It would really help me out if some of you would enter. Thanks!
If you'd like to prearrange a doll split at PUDDLE, don't forget about the forum:

Online photo/art contest deadline approaching!

Want a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Panik's Toy Box? Enter the PUDDLE online photo/art contest! I haven't received any entries yet, so you have a really good chance of winning! (You can submit up to two entries online and two different entries at the event if you are coming.) The deadline is April 1. You do not have to attend PUDDLE to enter!

The complete rules are here, but the main things are that it must be your own work and connected in some way to the PUDDLE theme of turtles.

Gogojimmy will be judging the entries. Here's a link to Panik's Toy Box. They have a lot of cool and creepy stuff.

So, take a chance and take some photos! Thanks!
