My Va Fashion Doll Club had its September meeting and the theme was World Festivals or Folk Festivals /Ethnic Festivals or diverse cultures from around the world celebrating food and costumes, etc. Took me a while to understand the display theme - and I have been so busy with personal life and work that I really didn't understand the theme- were we too create a theme with our own ethnic background or pick a country and go from there??? I picked Italy because for food we had to bring a food from the country we picked and pizza was all I could register quickly- I could make Pizza .
When I arrived, I finally understood what they were getting at- the dolls were supposed to be a festival, celebrating countries of the world, with booths set up selling their foods, products from that country. Well I bombed on this one. lol.
Part of my distraction from club this month and the months leading up is I have been working on re-vamping and getting my doll room packed up and ready to be painted and cleaned . The room has looked like a staging place from the Hoarders and I have long needed proper shelving and places to properly display my dolls and accessories. I have been working on packing up props and sorting and cleaning and still am not done. Almost done, have a few more things to pack before the final cleaning on the walls / and painting can begin.
But back to the club meeting. I will show you photos of the club displays.
We also did a flocking workshop on vintage , beatup Ken dolls at this club meeting. This is my Ken I did and he came out pretty well.
