Tonner Pure Imagination Convention Breakout Events and Seminars

They are up..most of the seminars are already sold out.  I am a little 'meh' on the Captain America event.  That actor Chris Evans is uber hot though...but I am just not a Marvel fan.  Sounds like the souvenier could be Black Widow with a Scarlett Johannsen likeness? I will go but it's highly unlikely I will be keeping these dolls. Although it sounds like the Captain doll with be a variant and we all won't get suckered into paying full price for a regular line doll (that will later go on sale like Superman).  I will skip the little girl event.  They are always really fun but...$$$$....don't got none.    Ellowyne events are always fun, though I rarely keep the whole doll.  I kept last year's outfits though and sold the dolls due to the glass eyes.  Not a fan of them. I will go to this though if only to get outfits and have fun.  As for the included events:  SUPER EXCITED about Pin up!  I hope the doll is a retro style girl with a cutesy boudoir outfit.  I need to plan something fun to wear to this...maybe a sailor number.  I was hoping there would be a Cami & Jon event as well.  Here's hoping there is a cute Andy doll available to purchase.  The fantasy mask ball sounds awesome!  A Sydney souvenir will be cool and I might just lose my mind if there is a David Bowie companion doll a la Labyrinthe. Fun costume opportunity as well.  I know exactly what I am going to wear for this...squeal.  Pj party with a contest this year!  Weeee!  Maybe I will make something.  And finally for Sunday brunch, when I first heard the convention name, I figured we would be getting something Wonka.  It seems like it will be Wonka Re-imagination though based on the description...that sounds fun.  I do not want some hideous oompa loompa.
