In a message from the W Club we were told that due to technical difficulties, photos of the convention dolls can't be posted yet. Whatever.
There are many people posting pictures of their own dolls but the official photos would be nice to have as in past years. You can find them on eBay. Do a search under "Gloss Convention/dolls & bears" and you will come up with several hundred postings.
That being said, I had to decide to keep only a few dolls so I've been selling the ones that can't stay. Here is what remains.
Sheer Sensuality Vanessa (Magenta) (Centerpiece) $300.
Poppy Dark Moon (Purple) (Convention collection) $250.
Grandiose Natalia Fatale (Convention collection) $225. (Nude $175) (Outfit $75)
Veronique Nocturnal Glow (Convention collection) $200. (Nude $150) (Outfit $65)

Victoire “Dial V for Victoire” Mini Gift Set (Store exclusive) $200.
Both for $350.

Chrome Noir Erin (NuFace) (Luncheon Gift Doll) $225.
Evening Siren Ayumi (NuFace) $250. (Nude $175.)
Time Served Color Infusion Homme Male Doll (Workshop) $200
Kyori “Nightshade” (Convention collection) Outfit Only $75
A huge shipment from my proxy is due to arrive tomorrow. I got the notice from UPS this morning. The convention collection, coming from Integrity, will take a few days longer.
Prices do not include postage.
Email me if you have an interest. I do have some pictures.
The dolls I am keeping:
-Intrigue Elise - Saturday night centerpiece.
-LE Smoking Adele (Convention Collection)
-After Hours Hanne (She was an optional purchase.)
I'm undecided about Cold Shoulder Eugenia and Adorned Vanessa (Convention collection.) They are gorgeous but I'm holding off deciding until I have them in my hands.
I think I'm done with Vanessa.
I had to ask myself what dolls I would have been willing to pay secondary market prices for and then decide whether or not it was worth it to have a proxy. It's a lot of work and time to sell the dolls I don't want to keep. I bought three of last year's convention dolls individually (Both Elise and one Monogram) as I did not have a proxy. This year, I got a bit caught up in the extras offered and bought dolls that are beautiful but not for me.
These CI male dolls are interesting. The frenzy for them is unbelievable.
Here's a picture of one I found on eBay.
