Flower Power

Yesterday was my doll club's (Dollology) annual May Day luncheon. This year, the theme was Flower Power. Many of the attendees dressed up as flower children and hippies from the late 60s and early 70s. It was quite a site to see.

Even some travel dolls were dressed for the occasion.

While Licca doesn't have any hippie clothes, she chose a flower covered mini yukata dress. Julie, in front of her, is properly attired too.

Other travel dolls at my table were Maru (also looking period appropriate),

And this sweet Italian fashion doll in a stylish flower power mini.

There we photo stations with props for photos too.

And a display of Tonner dolls, in honor of Robert Tonner giving the program and making the souvenir dolls.

After lunch, Robert Tonner delivered a presentation of influential doll sculptors, Helper's were drawn, and the souvenir dolls were distributed.

A Nancy Ann doll named Flower Power.

She is a dark skinned Nancy Ann in flower embroidered bell bottoms and a psychedelic crocheted top. Her hair is long, wavy, and a bit unruly.

Here she is wearing her beaded necklace, leather sandals, and flower headband. She is totally groovy, if you can dig it.

Look at that adorable face. This may be one of the last Tonner Nancy Anns produced.

On a side note, I was the lucky winner of Celeste by Stephanie Blythe from the Helper Drawings.

The Flower Power luncheon was hip and happening and I look forward to next years event.
