We all gathered In the bar area for registration and of course everyone was excited to see each other.
Janet was busy in her office distributing the SCW bags, there were 2 types, one for the Sasha celebration doll makers and one for the crafters.
At last it was my turn to get my bag and I had taken along my newly acquired and I believe the only known course doll clown I have ever seen. The story behind this little guy I have called “Bozo”, is that he belonged to one of Sasha Morgenthaler’s seamstresses. He is unusual in that he has a hand knotted wig, which is something I personally have only seen on studio dolls.
I had brought a couple of my Sasha dolls with me to join in the fun.
After registration it was time to set up the Mini ME’s and look alike competition
I had two entrants in this group Ed Sheeran complete with facial hair for the look alike section.
and my Mini Me.
Here are the others
