Some pics from the Paris Doll Convention

Collector Mieke posts some pictures on Prego... Those Fashion Agency Dolls look amazing! I love the wig of the Convention Sybarite as well.

Tonner Lord of the Rings & Alice Pics are up...

Pictures for Aragorn and Arwen are up. I am surprised by how reasonable the prices are for these two as compared to the Pirates of the Caribbean Dolls. I think Viggo looks good but I cannot tell about Arwen's sculpt. I would also love to know if her ears are pointy or not?

The two Queens from the Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland are up as well. I love Mirana.
