QOTW: Have you ever been to a BlytheCon?

Depending on how you count your days, there are currently 26 more days to go until BlytheCon Seattle (August 2nd, 2014 – for those curious). BlytheCon, to me, will always be a special event. I missed out on going to Dallas in 2012 and New York City in 2013, but Seattle is so close that I just can’t say no to going! It also helps that so many local dolly friends will be attending as well (and some will even be vending!).

June 20th - BlytheCon!

BlytheCon 2011, which took place in Portland, Oregon, will always hold a near and dear place in my heart because it was the first time I ever met other people who collected Blythes. It was the first time I was able to truly put usernames (and real names!) to faces. It was also the first time that I met people who live near me that have Blythes. And that, kids, is how I met other local dolly enthusiasts! The Portland BlytheCon is still the only BlytheCon that I have attended, so far. Going to Seattle will mean two things for me: 1) seeing friends that I was able to see face-to-face in Portland again, and b) making new friends! I’ll be there, with some not-yet-decided dolls in tow… But more on that later!

There are many other Blythe events that happen worldwide too! What with Blythe Fest, BlytheCon UK, BlytheCon EU, and so many more. I’d love to attend others as well! But it is currently not financially feasible, but one day? Perhaps I shall be there.

Have you ever been to a BlytheCon?

    We share a similar story! I have only attended Blythecon in Portland! I can’t wait to see everyone in Seattle! I love being with other Blythe collectors and feeling completely “normal” for a few hours, where I do not have to justify or explain my girls. I can just talk about them endlessly!!!

    I was fortunate enough to go to both Dallas and New York, and with my best friend living in Seattle (she is a Blyther too!) I am happy to say I will see you there! I can’t wait to meet you!
