Oh my goodness, save the date! You won't want to miss the first ever Korean Ball Jointed Doll, put on right here in Los Angeles, CA this spring!
The main purpose of the show is to collaborate with Korean BJD companies to develop business relationships, and develop offline relationships with companies and collectors.
The general contact and event operator is the fabulous Ms. Cholong. You can contact her at the following website for attendee and vendor registration. The preliminary schedule is posted here.
Registration fees vary, depending on category--if you are a Korean BJD manufacturer or US retailer, cost is $220. Doll collectors can register for $165, and it looks like several types of single day passes are also available, ranging from $28-70. I believe dinners are limited to 100, so be sure to register early.
So far, the confirmed exhibitors are:
- Be with You
- Blue Fairy
- BnB Doll
- Dreaming Doll
- LaTi Doll
- Little Monica
- Migi Doll
- Nine9 Style
- Peak's Woods (!!!)
According to the website, approximately 20 exhibitors from Korea will be attending, and more will be announced soon. Additionally, other exhibitors include:
- Susan Lake Designs
- Xtreme Dolls (Cristy Stone)
- Bergemann Dolls
- Marbled Halls (Connie Lowe)
- JPop Dolls
