BlytheCon Vancouver 2015


As most of you know by now I am one of the four organizers for the first ever Canadian BlytheCon to be held in Vancouver at the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel on Sunday August 9, 2015. We are all extremely excited to welcome all of you to our beautiful city. Here's a video of our venue:



Our theme will be "Always The Bridesmaid Never The Bride" and we have lots of surprises, workshops, contests and giveaways planned to make of your visit a truly unforgettable one. Let's just say that a little bird told me that we have over twenty custom dolls to give away the day of the event - and we are not talking about unknown customisers either - we are talking about some of the most respected customisers in the industry.

Our featured doll will be Nicky Lad (RBL) and you can see her featured as our ‘main girl’ in our illustrations made by the amazingly talented Chun Fu (puppy52). We’re very excited to invite everyone to bring their Nicky Lads to BlytheCon Vancouver for a contest/photo shoot.

Nicky Lad

Our official website is www.blytheconvan.com and we also have a Facebook Page, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest (can you tell I love social media yet?).

Charity

Our event is non-profit and all of the proceeds will be donated to the Orphaned Wildlife Association (O.W.L.) located in Delta, BC.  (www.owlcanada.org).  O.W.L.’s volunteers are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of injured and orphaned birds of prey. We chose O.W.L. to be our event’s beneficiary because we strongly believe in their cause of helping British Columbia’s beautiful birds of prey in their time of need. Check out their official Facebook page for beautiful pictures and updates.
