My flight arrived a bit late by one hour at 2:30pm, so I checked into the hotel and called my roommate Dwane.  We went directly for Early Registration with Norita and Patty.  The hotel was beyond a mini theme park without the rides.  We received our registration goodie bag in a cool denim, tote bag and a convention pin.

* 3:00 to 4:30 – Workshop - Tess & Dave's Big Hair Bonanza (Austin)

After registration, we decided to do a little Room Shopping. On the way there we saw numerous people returning from the Mattel Toy Store Party with bags stuffed to the brim! Obviously there was some great deals to be had there! Our group contemplated boarding the last shuttle there, but we decided against it since most of the good stuff was already gone judging from the size of the bags we were seeing :)  Most of the Room Shopping was on the 4th and 5th floors of the hotel.  I went crazy.  I bought lots of stuff including my 2007 Edition Matt Trujillo Doll and the following Ken fashions:  Paris Pretty Fashion #1912, #4416, Fashion Collectibles #1931, Fashion Collectibles #1931 Hanes.  I branched out this year, as I use Barbie as a Kitchen (my Kitchen) accessory.  I learned (still learning about Barbie) that it's a no no to dress Mod era dolls in Vintage fashions, so I immediately did just that.  You see I really only like the TNT head mold, but the "kitchen" theme fashions are all Vintage there you have it.  I bought a blonde flip STUNNER from Sandi Holder and a light brown knock-out in another room.  (I got the fashion she's dressed in there too).  Follow this link for pictures of these dolls:  Barbie Kitchen Accessories.  Also, I was introduced to the fabulous world of  dressmaker details fashions in another room, and immediately bought a Barbie fashion called "Patio Party".  Later on I would actually get to meet Steven who creates these stunning fashions! Of course later I stopped in to my dear friend Andrea Rossi's and she gave me a Ken paper doll calendar (pictured below) and made me an AWESOME Ken bracelet!! Thanks Andrea!!

** 5:00 to ??? – Magia2000 Party (Hotel Room – Mario & Gianni)

After some room shopping, right across from our room, Mario and Gianni's Magia2000 Party was in full swing.  If you have never met these guys, you should.  Not only talented but as sweet as can be. They designed the convention doll from the NBDCC 2006 convention.  There room was full of BEAUTIFUL OOAK dolls, including the doll they designed for the Live Auction.  Most of the dolls were already sold (which is completely understandable).  Our group went in for a few shots of something lemony and some snacks.  I took some pictures of this event, because it is always fun to find the "unofficial" convention events. I fell in love with one of the dolls (which was one of the few that was unsold) and could smack myself for not getting her.

Feeling the lemony, it was time for a snack in the Texan Station restaurant.  We met Fred at the Magia2000 Party, and he went with us.  The Texan Station became VERY familiar to us as the convention progressed for eating and other activities.  Most of the "other" activities took place in the cigar bar area, which was more accepting of our behavior.  We shared some "Texas-sized" nachos and just relaxed and talked.  Afterwards, it was time for some more Room Shopping, which included stopping in at Sandi Holder's room.  Of course Sandi Holder is my best friend, and it wasn't hard to convince her to come back down to meet us in the Texan Station later.  And later when that happened, I truly felt like this was going to be the best convention ever, mostly because all of us continued to spend a lot of time together as the convention progressed.  If there is one memory of this convention I will always remember, it is of having so much fun with my friends, and the slogan, "What happens on the balcony, stays on the balcony".  (Special thanks to Grey Goose).

It was a rough night :)  So when we finally got up, it was off to the Raffle Room where this convention boasted that there were more items than you can shake a stick at.  Literally there were over 200 items to raffle for! As usual, I carefully chose the items I placed my tickets in...and didn't win anything :(  Oh well, there is always next year.  I am the raffle Room Chair for the 2008 NBDCC, so it's going to be hard to top this year's room! The room was HUGE and tables lined each wall and there were even tables of stuff down the center!

Workshops continued during the day.  I didn't attend any workshops, but I saw a lot of people carrying their finished creations.  Here are the list of Workshops:

Making Jewelry For Barbie

Mermaid Kelly Beginning Pattern Design
Beverly Bailey, Presenter 

This workshop will include the basic steps to complete a pair of earrings and a matching necklace for Barbie®. You will also learn what to look for in found jewelry and other techniques for different types of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.  

As many collectors, Beverly enjoyed playing with Barbie® as a child. Her collection goes from Vintage to today’s play line dolls. When Beverly moved overseas, her dolls could not come with her. So to keep herself occupied she started a new hobby: jewelry making.  Upon her return to the US about eleven years ago, her two ‘passions’ came together.  

Beverly has been making doll jewelry ever since, using all types of materials, such as, pearls, Swarovski crystals, coral, turquoise, and silver, as well as recycled chain and findings from other jewelry.  

Fee:  $15—All materials are provided but a pair of small round nose pliers and a Barbie® size model would be helpful.

Durelle Brown, Presenter  

In this fun and simple workshop you will create a darling mermaid made from a Kelly® doll. The process is very easy and anyone can do it. You will be using a two-part resin compound which dries rock hard in a matter of hours. Durelle will take you step-by-step through the sculpting process and you will leave the workshop with an adorable mini-mermaid. Durelle has taught this beginner workshop many times and all who have participated were very proud of their accomplishments. Dive on in or take a dip into the ocean and create a mini-mermaid to add to your collection.  

For five years, Durelle has been turning our favorite doll into works of art under the name Demi-Divas. As a doll artist, her exotic beauties have become her passion. Durelle is thrilled and grateful to be at her first Barbie® convention this year and is excited to show her beauties to the Barbie® world. Durelle enjoys competition and it shows with her four wins in the  BBMA competition and other trophies won in the International Fashion Doll Contest, sponsored by Jim Faraone.  

Fee:  $20—All supplies will be provided and are included in the cost of the workshop. However, you must bring your own Kelly® doll.  If you would like, you may use a 6” princess-size Barbie®.

Judy Frank, Presenter 

Would you like to design your own fashions for the belly button body dolls but don't know where to begin?  You will begin with a basic sheath and learn how to change the neckline, make front or back closures, yokes and a variety of sleeves. This hands-on workshop does not require sewing, but participants do need sewing and flat pattern experience (either for dolls or humans.) 

Judy Frank has been making her own patterns and sewing for Barbie® and friends since childhood.  She is primarily interested in historic fashions and strives to have her fashions as accurate as possible from the undergarments outward to the hairstyles and accessories. Nine of her dolls were displayed in the Barbie® as First Lady exhibit in the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace museum in 2000. 

Fee:  $15 per person—Bring your own scissors for paper cutting. All other supplies will be provided.

Flower Garden Kelly Tess's Big Hair Bonanza  
Tonya Ducote, Presenter 

Your Kelly® doll will become a little ray of sunshine when she is transformed into a floral beauty, which will never require watering! Come and learn these simple techniques, and you'll not only leave with an OOAK Kelly® "growing" in a flower pot, but with many ideas of how to make more of your very own! 

Tonya's very first Barbie® as a child was the Sweet 16 Barbie® and she loved playing "Barbie" with friends. Her collection started with a Wedding Barbie® received as a gift. Her collection now includes a  range of dolls from vintage and mod to recent collectibles, including OOAKs. She enjoys making OOAK Kelly® dolls and has made many adorable creations. 

Fee: $15—All tools and supplies will be provided but you will need to bring a nude, bald Kelly® or friend of Kelly® to the workshop.

Tess Barton, Presenter

Whether your doll is dying for big Texas hair, or just in need of a new look, this is the workshop for you.  Tess will discuss Barbie®  hair fiber types, basic hair cutting tips, and various styling techniques including boil perms. A workbook will be included, with instructions for creating a basic up-do, a swirl ponytail, a layered shag, and a big afro. There will also be instruction of hair rescue and conditioning techniques for those dolls who may have spent a few too many sessions at the salon.  

Tess Barton is a native Texan who works as a pediatrician in Dallas. She has collected Barbie® doll since childhood, inspired by her doll-collecting grandmother. Her collection is primarily vintage, mod and artists' one-of-a-kind dolls. She has earned two BBMAAs in 2000 and 2001. Tess has also won several other prizes and competitions for her doll work and has written articles for Barbie® Bazaar  and Dollystyle® magazines. She also collects other 60s and 70s dolls, with a particular fondness for anything big-eyed and wacky.  

Fee: $15 —Participants are asked to bring one or more dolls for styling, as well as a sharp pair of scissors.


Dwane, Fred and I went exploring the hotel and took some great pictures in the theme areas.  My favorites were by the stuffed Long Horn? (See below).  After a mid-afternoon Steering Committee Meeting and some MORE Room Shopping and seeing friends, it was time to get ready for the first gathering of conventioneers this evening!

* 7:30 to 10:00 – Tip Your Hat to Texas - Reception & Silent Auction (State Fair Theme – Non Table Event)

First things first, Brad presented me with a Fashion Fever Ken (Second Edition) doll since I expressed earlier that I hadn't found him in my area yet, so THANKS Bard!! The Tip Your Hat to Texas Reception was a great time for everyone to gather together.  There were cut-out to take pictures in and there was also a Texas Hat decoration contest.  While you were mingling, you could gander at the Silent Auction dolls and place your bid, and the Live Auction dolls were also on display.  All the dolls were fantastic as you will see from the pictures (Live Auction dolls will be posted in Saturday's coverage).  It is always fun to run into people you haven't seen in a year :)  You could stay for Karaoke afterwards, but for us it was back to the Texan Station for more merriment with the gang!

* 10:00 to 1:30 – Sales Room Open

After my Table Host Meeting, I ventured into the Sales Room, which opened today.  I ended up buying a few more things that caught my eye like a Shaun (Second Edition) doll and a few trips later, a Barbie fashion (gasp) from Steven at dressmaker details who sold me the dressmaker detail's "Pretty" fashion made exclusively for the 2007 convention.  Earlier I had bought "Patio Party" room shopping, so it was nice to actually meet the designer of these fabulous fashions!  Steven is a really nice guy and actually listed to my suggestions for some fashions I like from some of my favorite movies.  I look forward to seeing him again next year! I also broke down and bought "Brunch Time" from Joe's, which is basically an understated "house dress" Barbie Vintage fashion, but I LOVE those casserole dishes...and I understand that the teeny tiny blue plastic "handle" (which Barbie uses to take those hot casserole dishes out of the oven) is extremely hard to find with this fashion...and of course it fits into my kitchen theme.  Follow the link below for a picture of these fashions on my dolls.

8:00 to 11:00 – Mattel Presentation (Non Table Event)

Mattel Presents "Barbie le jazz hot cabaret" was the theme of this open seating event.  Each chair had either a hot pink or black feather boa on it.  When the lights dimmed, collectors watched a cabaret style show with singing and dancing from actresses portraying the new Gold Label Jazz Baby Cabaret Dancer Barbie® dolls.  There were also some great looking male actors, but there are no male dolls planned for this line, except for the ones in the shown in the Live Auction :(

The show was a BIG hit, and right into the show, it was announced that each conventioneer would receive one of the three dolls in the line mailed to your home.  (I'm hoping for the redhead).  An envelope was passed out and inside was a letter and a picture of the three dolls.  The show continued, with some great play on lyrics to familiar jazz themed songs that made them "Barbie" related.  After the show, you had the opportunity to take pictures with the performers.  One again, Mattel put on a great, entertaining event for the conventioneers, and its no wonder why conventioneers look forward to it each year!

* 7:00 to 9:00 – Competition Set Up
* 9:00 to 11:00 – Competition Judging

9:00 seemed like the crack of dawn, but I was up and early for the Competition Judging.  I judged along with Beth Heiss and we judged a creative category.  I think I took pictures of all of the entries, which can be seen by following the category letter/number links below.  I'll have to admit that the Competition Room was a bit lacking in entries.  Many categories didn't have entries and several only had one, but the entries that were there were awesome!

Afterwards, it was off to the Sales Room for a bit...and since the sun came out today (finally), a group of us decided to go to the pool and get some sun until the dinner event later.
