Dolly Day Barcelona - 2nd June 2018 (Very photo heavy!!!)

As most of you will know, I went to Barcelona for a long weekend so that I could attend the Dolly Day Barcelona on Saturday 2nd June.  I arrived there about midday on the Friday and was to meet my friend Sue and her husband on the Friday evening as we were staying at the same hotel.  Sue lives in the UK and we have been friends for about 11 years now, having met through our love of ball jointed dolls and the Den of Angels BJD forum.  However, as I was travelling by taxi from the hotel to the airport, I had some frantic messages from Sue to tell me that her flight had been cancelled due to bad weather over central Europe!!  I felt ever so slightly panicked at the thought of being there on my own, but hey ho, I'm a big girl and didn't let that stop me getting out and about on Friday afternoon and evening and getting to the Dolly Day event hotel the following morning before Sue arrived on Saturday lunchtime!

Anyway, I was going to add lots of text to this post but am hoping that the photos will be enough as there are so many of them.  I will try to tell you who the dolls are made by, although I admit that some I cannot remember (so if anyone can help or recognises the dolls or artists, please leave a comment below and I can amend the photos!)  

I'm sorry that there are so many photos and that the quality of them isn't great but I only took my iphone, my regular camera was too heavy to carry as I only took hand luggage!!!

Please grab a cup of whatever you fancy, and enjoy!!!!!

The centre of the venue was filled with displays of dolls owned by attendees.....I don't know their owners so I cannot help with much info on these.....


The two girls below, facing the camera are Volks dolls.  The girl sitting down is definitely Toppi as I had one of these myself some years ago....




Volks MSD Toppi....


This is definitely a Peaks Wood girl but I don't know the sculpt name....


Two cute Dal girls and their bear pal....



I don't recognise these girls but think the big girl might be from Fairyland, looking at her hand sculpt...I believe the tiny is a Luts Tiny Delf Alice in tan.


A group of tinies from various BJD companies...



Very detailed cloth dolls....


I think these girls are from Fairyland....

These next little tiny jointed animals are from the company Cocoriang and my goodness they were so incredibly cute looking!  They reminded me of nicer, more well made, Sylvanian Family creatures.  The stand was so sweet looking with little displays and 'room boxes'....very tempting!!!






More cute girls on the Atelier Momoni stand....




Another pair of very well dressed Blythes.....


The next few photos are of the Charles Creature Cabinet stand....Charles Grimberg-Stephan is an artist from The Netherlands....Charles designs these little fellows and I believe some of them glow in the dark!


This little one was obviously a little bit peckish....I hope she shared with the baby though!


I love this little Chimp, with his sweet face...


Another pretty pink haired Pullip....


I thought this girl was gorgeous but I have no idea who she's by.  She's a biggie though, I love her faceup....

Very elaborate outfits for taller BJDs, but sorry, I cannot remember the name of the designer....

The next three photos are doll modifications by Doktor Krow who is known for his faceups, modifications and aesthetics....the details on the dolls is amazing!!!




I spotted this lovely Blue Fairy Tiny Fairy May in 'baked skin' on an other stand, she is my favourite of the Blue Fairy sculpts and I love this skin colour....


I believe this is also the May sculpt but the 'sleeping' version in normal skin....


I should know who this is but for the life of me cannot remember!


Two wonderful baskets of little Engendritos by Irrealdoll....



This little tiny aqua haired girl is Enoki....


And Laura's latest sculpt, Annic...this one is Laura's own doll and not for sail, or I might have snapped her up!!!


Two tinies, one with a mermaid tail, by Merrydollround...
