Tropicalia 2012 Recap- Part II

Sorry this took a little longer than anticipated. I overslept but I'm in under my deadline :O)

Day 3 - I went to the WClub luncheon and the centerpiece was the lovely Elise. I had the chance to buy her but sold her to a bigger fan than I.  

We also received a gorgeous FR2 shoe pack (no pic yet). Three sets of shoes for the FR2's in your life. After lunch it was nap time or packing time in my case. I actually started to get everything together Friday night. I decided not to ship a thing O_o . So before the final Saturday night dinner I worked my suitcases like a game of Tetris..LOL. I still ended up buying a duffle bag to use as my 2nd carry on for the plane ride home.

My recap is not as full as some others but I'm getting to the goodies now. I may have to put up a Part III for a couple of other things I picked up. I did stick with my list but a couple of other goodies slipped in LOL 

From the convention collection I came home with 3 ladies. Adele, Colette, & Natalia.
Natalia, Adele, Colette

When the Color Infusion Style Lab opened my girlfriend Irma and I were in the first 20 to be on line. I know you're gonna ask but Cecile was in a workshop. I think they had 8 or 9 baskets to start with. As someone finished shopping the basket was handed to the next person waiting. I was so tired but being up early to get the ladies & guy I wanted was so worth it :O)

From my list I came home with the following ladies. Not too bad huh. They will get better coverage in the days to come. From left to right: Power Game Natalia, Vivid Impact Agnes, Rising Sun Kyori, and a Strict Elegance Luchia (her name will be changing).


One guy was on my list but his friend wasn't. It was a corporate decision to dress my newest hunk who is named Derek. He was aptly named by Cecile & I in our hotel room to honor her brother-in-law. Backstage has no name yet but he will be staying too


 These ladies were last but never least in surprises. We won the chance to purchase the centerpiece Eugenia (only 200 of her). Victoire was a surprise 2nd doll for purchase

 OK Part III is for the morning. I'm sure you'll tune in. I have pics of the dolls we were given and my surprise purchases

  1. Very nice haul of dolls. I had the best time OMG! IT really brought it this year. I have not deboxed anything. I redressed some of the loose dolls that I purchased, but that's about it. Love your Derek!

    P.S. Great meeting you again. : )
