  1. Are you aware of any BJD conventions in Canada on the West Coast?

  2. PNW BJD Expo (PNW stands for Pacific Northwest) 2nd annual BJD expo will be held on May 11th, 2013 at the Kitsap Conference Center in Bremerton, Washington. The theme is Fairy Tale Forest. More info can be found at

  3. Sue--I have my eyes open, and did a quick search this morning (though while the kids were getting ready for school, LOL)! I'll try to get some more in-depth info for you. :)

  4. Thanks, Elizabeth--I've added it!

  5. I was blessed greatly when I got your book.Next is locating the doll.of my dreams! I hope to attend a convention this year. I am located in California....

    Best Regards,
    Linda King

  6. I don't know if you ever found this info, but I just thought I'd post it here incase you hadn't come across it. I know most of the major Canadian anime cons host meet-ups and some even have info panels, but as far as I knwo the only Canadian BJD events are Doll North at Toronto's Anime North convention and Dollfest at Montreal's Otakuthon.

  7. Atlanta October 10-12. 2014. Was so glad to meet you and daughter last year!

  8. Don't forget dollakon:
    and the atlanta con!:

  9. The Sixth Annual San Diego BJD con will be held on November 15, 2014, from 10am - 4pm at the San Diego Marina Village. $10 at the door.

  10. Anything for the east coasters of the states? Currently in eastern PA. It seems to lack a lot of things. Lol.

    1. LOL! I lived in Hershey, PA for four years while DH was in school. We left California with no kids, and came home with two! (It must be the water.) ;) I'll keep my eyes open for you--and thanks for the reminder. I have been updating new 2015 information today.

  11. All the hotels are very amazing and provide outstanding services. I was thinking to get some details of best hotels for corporate events Chicago. If you know of any good hotel then please share the reviews and details here!


Thanks for your comment. We take the time to read each one, and try to get back to you within one working day.
