Italian Doll Convention in Milan Begins Saturday

I'd love to return to Milan one day. This year will not see that happen for me. However, many lucky collectors are on their way or already have arrived in Milan for the Italian Doll Convention which begins tomorrow. We're seeing many photos on Facebook of schedules and arrivals.

One photo from the Superdoll site (not there any longer) shows a new doll called Londra with a gorgeous set of gold luggage standing in Milan at an elegant and fashionable shopping area called Via Montenapoleone. 

It's a wonderful photo. Here's a close-up. I'm not a fan of the ginormous lips but I adore her fashion.

The gorgeous OOAK Superdoll created for the IDC charity auction sold for €3,970 (Euros.) That translates to $5,414.58 US Dollars. Izzy was the winner.

It Begins: Repaint of Carmen Dell'Orefice Doll by Freddy Ramirez

This is the first full repaint I've seen of Tonner's new Carmen doll.

Freddy Ramirez is spot-on in this repaint. The changes to her hair, eyebrows and eyes and particularly her lips have transformed the sculpt into an excellent representation of Carmen.

She's up for auction (nude) on eBay with a starting price of $400.

I don't know why they don't finish the Tyler Wentworth archive. After all, she's been around the longest and is still around.
