June Virtual Doll Convention

Have you ever wanted to attend a doll convention, but time, money, and/or distance has kept you from it? Then the June Virtual Doll Convention might be for you.

Doll lady supreme, Rachel Hoffman, has put together an event like no other that you can participate in from the comfort of your own home, and at $25.00 it is affordable for most. 

The official days of the convention are June 19-23, so there is still time to sign up before it starts.

Please check out the Website here for more information. There are scholarships available through Rachel if you can't afford it.

Pictured here is my Zoe doll by Helen Kish. She is wearing an outfit designed by Helen Kish just for members of the VDC (Virtual Doll Convention).

We hope to see you there.

Kick Butts and Eat Nuts

I just couldn't resist, Squirrel Girl, the Marvel Rising Secret Warriors doll, just had to join my collection. I am a fan of the comic book character and recently have been reading her recent adventures in "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl". This doll is based on the version in the TV cartoon, Marvel Rising Secret Warriors.

This Target exclusive is wearing her civvies and comes with her uniform and Tippy Toe, her squirrel best friend.

Eeek! Her legs are green. Are you sure she's not frog girl. OK, they are just her uniform tights. Whew.

I was surprised at how short she was compared to Curvy Barbie and DC Super Hero Girls Supergirl. She is just under 10 1/2 inches tall, and curvier than the others, just like in the comics. In the comics she also has large, you might say squirrel like, buck teeth and short red hair.

Here she is redressed in her costume. I had to plug her tail into her back. Her tail is supposed to be part of her and in her everyday identity as Doreen, she stuffs her tail into her pants, giving her the appearance of having a very large bottom. This tail will not fit in her regular outfit. Too bad.

It looks like Doreen, I mean Squirrel Girl, and Tippy Toe are ready to "Kick butts and eat nuts!"
