2017 IDC–Saturday

Saturday festivities started with workshops.  Rogier gave one on miniature hat making.  As the recipient of some of Rogier’s amazing miniature millinery creations, I am sure everyone learned a lot and had a fantastic time.

OOAK Doll Festival–Friday Dinner

After the sales room frenzy of Friday afternoon, many attendees headed to Mood Fabric in the garment district and if they had time, stopped off at M&J Trimming.  I did not attend that outing but many did and had a marvelous time.

The evening event was the Platinum Party Dinner where we all paid tribute to the amazing and creative talents of Gianni Grossi and Mario Paglino who make up the stellar team of Magia 2000.  Here they are with Rocky Schmidt the fabulous organizer of this truly one of a kind festival.

There was a table centerpiece…which all of us wanted but only 10 lucky ducks won.  Yours truly and her blogging cohort Rogier…were not lucky ducks this evening Sad smile

There was also a collection of Magia 2000 creations that were brought and shared by various attendees.  It was such a treat to see so many beautiful creations from Magia 2000 past collections.  Wish I had time to photograph all of them in the studio!

Once you stopped salivating over the Magia’s…it was time to vote on your favorite “unconventional material” OOAK dolls.  Each attendee was given a ticket to vote on their favorite Magia and their favorite unconventional material doll.

There were many creative entries for unconventional materials.  In the end…Rogier was 2nd runner up for his masterful concoction.  The winner of the competition was an adorable whimsical design and excellent use of pastel confetti material!

After a lovely dinner, it was time to unveil the Magia 2000 official convention doll.  Each attendee received one!  She was an instant favorite.  Her name is Manhattan Premiere.

I love how they did the tables and seating chart!!  Since the theme is USA this year, all the tables were different states.  Too fun.  Rogier’s  table is Arizona.

If you wanted to, you could also take a workshop at IDC today.  Rogier did one with his incredible miniatures.  If you ever have the chance to take one of his workshops…do it!  This is what the lucky participants got to make today.
