Looking at the workshops from last year's convention, I wish I lived closer so I could attend. They put together quite a nice list of DIY dolly stuff. If this year is similar, attendees are in for a treat.

However, visiting the other topic of this thread for a moment, I don't think this con is doing itself any favors with this language:

Quote:…This also means that we ask you to not bring any illegal doll, i.e., recast, bootleg, counterfeit, etc to the convention. Anyone that brings one to the convention will be asked to leave should we find out that you have one with you…

How exactly is anyone going to know something is a re-cast? Was nothing learned from Resin Rose? At that con a "group of people looked at the head an {sic} unanimously declared it recast"—that group of people was WRONG. What makes anyone in Atlanta think they're going to be better at identifying what is or isn't legit?

I read through the tumblr posts, including the entirety of Diario de Muñecos BJD (where I think some of the misinformation might have originated due to mistranslation), and I still think the way the con treated SakuraMatsuri was highly unprofessional.

The meet up group in Atlanta is mostly very anti recast. There's a few of us that are neutral/ pro. Most cons are putting language like that out so they can be sponsored by the BJD companies. My rule of thumb is just don't bring a recast. Atlanta isn't likely to take your doll away or kick you out. They just ask you leave it in your room etc.

RE: Atlanta Ball Jointed Doll Convention ????
The website FAQ says: "Atlanta Ball Jointed Doll Convention LLC is three day event in it’s first year." So, that's not the case? How many years has it been going on?

Also, the FAQ says it is at a holiday inn, but the front page says a Crown Plaza....

I'm guessing that they probably just haven't updated that on the website since the first year.

This is very confusing. I got a card for it last year at an anime convention I went to, I wonder if I still have it. Of course the location could change from year to year.

I'm considering going, as I should have my first BJD by then, and I live super close by.

RE: Atlanta Ball Jointed Doll Convention ????
Noo!! I hope they are able to do it again one year. sad

According to the Facebook page, it wasn't a lack of interest, but a lack of funds.

RE: Atlanta Ball Jointed Doll Convention ????
I honestly wondered how they could put on a three-day convention at those low registration fees.

They also never opened one day passes, despite many folks asking for them. It's a shame

Cons are very hard to organize, so I understand this. Bummer though! I'd be down for an ATL meetup sometime.
