A Dutch Barbie collector in Holland

Dark Romance Margaux Demuse Doll

I neer understand that there people who bid on Ebay and when they win an item the wont pay. This is so stupid and especially when it’s for a charity auction. This happend to one of the amazing creations from the IDC charity convention.

The doll that I am talking about is the ooak Dark Romance Margaux Demuse doll from the Malaysian designer Nigel Chia

4 Hotel

The venue where IDC take place is Melia Milano. And this is the perfect convention Hotel. Its very Italian chique. And the people working in the hotel are the best. Its always fun to see that they also enjoy the madness that a doll convention brings to a place. It’s situated close to the subway and in a few minutes you are at the Duomo. And they serve a great Aperol Spritz at their lounge terras. For IDC they always have a special room rate so we can spend a little more in the salesroom 😉
