A first-year convention always has surprises, and ours is no exception. Fortunately most of our surprises have been pleasant ones so far! We have a new surprise to share with regard to our Convention Doll, Spark. Sarah Seiter has reported some delays with the casting of the dolls. The casting company is going to work hard to get as many dolls ready as they can, but we wanted to let everyone know that it is possible that your doll won't be available in time for the convention. We are working on a solution to this delay which we will announce at the convention. Sarah has offered her sincere apologies, and we're looking forward to hearing the particulars of this story at the convention. I'm sure it will make a great narrative! What we're currently working with is the idea that we may have a Doll-Pick-Up mini-meet up when the rest of the dolls are finished and distribute them then.
