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.

Groove USA will be in attendance; don't forget the photo/art contest

Great news! Groove USA will be attending this year's event. Last year, Yosuke Oba brought top secret artist prototypes from Mango Park and a table full of nude dolls and bagged stock for sale. What will he bring this year?

Also, don't forget to enter the online photo/art contest! Anyone can enter - you don't have to be coming to PUDDLE. Details here:

Register now for PUDDLE 2013

PUDDLE is only four months away! It's on June 15 at the Chicago-Elk Grove Holiday Inn.

If you planning on attending and have not yet registered, please do (even if you aren't ready to pay right now). It really helps with planning if I have an idea of how many people are attending. Thanks! Registration info here:

Also, if you are attending, please think about ways you can help make PUDDLE a success! One of the reasons Blythe conventions are so great is that many attendees donate items to other fans. If you can knit, sew, create, or make items you think other Pullip fans would like, please consider doing so. Donations of any amount - 1, 10, or 50 - will be happily accepted, as will mini chocolates to put out on the tables, or small items you buy for the gift bags. Be on the lookout for great doll-sized clearance items. Thanks!
