Mary West of Daydream Creations vends and teaches at many BJD and other Doll conventions. She is a gifted couture artist for dolls. This workshop was planned for last year without the added Faerie wings but for health reasons was moved to this year. We did still offer a corset workshop last year which many enjoyed but I know this one will be popular. Sign up soon to secure your place. Also do not forget to sign up for our other awesome Sewing workshops which are also on the website. More details about them next month.
Friday Night of the St. Louis BJD Convention at our official hotel, the Airport Hilton, we will host a Pizza Party starting at 6:30 PM in our private hotel suite. Our theme for this event is “Pajama Party.” We encourage you to bring your dolls in their PJs or nighties and dress for a pajama party yourself. We will have pizza and snacks, beverages, door prizes, bedtime stories, and activities suitable for a pajama party.
The Missouri Botanical Gardens
Sunday is our traditional group field trip day to give members a chance to visit St. Louis attractions and to have photo opportunities with their dolls. This year we have chosen to go to the Missouri Botanical Garden. This is one of the most beautiful places in St. Louis. We will stroll in the beautiful Japanese garden, tour the Victorian town house of Henry Shaw and enjoy the tropics in the Geodesic Dome rainforest. There are other indoor exhibits too, should the weather be inclement.
Basic Set: $225
Full Set: $340
Several members have already made their purchase of our exclusive convention doll, Emily. Most of the dolls ordered have been full set dolls with Emily’s charming steam-punk outfit. This doll, created by Denis Bastien, is a limited edition. Only 60 full set dolls are available, and only 40 basic dolls! Order yours soon before they are gone.

Our Game Day was really fun! We had a nice turnout of local gaming aficionados of all ages. One of the most popular games was a brand-new card game created by a team of St. Louis game creators, including our own Jen Patton. She was beta testing the new game to put on the market. (Insert plug for game here?) We had delicious refreshments and great raffles. The prizes were donated by locals businesses and individuals. Food donations were collected for the OBC Food Pantry and we raised funds to help make our convention extra special!
