Review: My Experience with The Virtual Doll Convention

My name is Ellen Tsagaris and I am an author of doll books, doll collector, doll blogger, doll maker, museum curator, and doll historian. I have worked with and know many of the participants of this unique online convention, and do my part to support and encourage it. We just finished the second, very successful Virtual Doll Convention, (VDC) held June 19-23, 2019. Let me pause to say that June 19th is my birthday, and attending this convention was the ultimate birthday present. Its organizers helped make doll collecting the positive, creative hobby it was meant to be. As one who loves doll history, I'm thrilled with the presentations and the knowledge behind them. I loved the videos and souvenirs, too. Best of all, Virtual Doll Convention proved yet again that dolls bring the people of the world together in a positive, loving light.
