Faux Fur Wig Panel Question!
Are you planning on going to the Faux Fur Wig panel at Uncanny Dreams? If you are thinking about it, please email funnylori(AT) to voice your interest so that she can have an idea of how many kits are needed! This won't be a commitment to attend, just voicing your interest!

Motif Contest Voting!
We are happy to announce that the voting is now open for the Motif Contest!

Voting will remain open through the 16th and all votes will be counted towards the final tally. Please keep in mind that the entrants may make some tweaks between now and the show, so what you see here may not be exactly what you see at the show. Feel free to vote here as well as in person if you are attending! Voting is open to everyone.

Head over to the Motif Contest Voting page to vote!

Our invited artists have been working away at creating displays for your viewing pleasure this year and we are excited to reveal who they are! From the sounds of it, they have whipped up quite the show! We can't wait to see the circus acts they are bringing!

With no further ado, we are proud to announce our artists for 2013!

Come see their wonderful creations at Uncanny Dreams: Circus of Mysteries!

We are happy to announce that we will have two panels hosted during this year's Uncanny Dreams!

FunnyLori will be hosting the following panel/workshop:
Faux Fur Wig Upgrades
Take your faux fur wigs to the next level with these styling techniques. Learn how to cut bangs, get tips on styling products, and learn how to make your very own buns, tails, and wig accessories. Wigs, fur, needles, thread, patterns and other supplies will be provided. Please bring your own sewing scissors.

fenris will be hosting the following panel:
You Bring the Q, We'll bring the A!
Have a burning question related to BJDs? Want advice on where to find something you've been looking for? Need help with how to restring your doll? Look no further! fenris will be presenting a short intro to BJDs at the start of the panel for anyone new to dolls or interested in learning more, followed by a general Q&A covering anything related to BJDs that you would like to know.

We're still working on finalizing the schedule for the show, but wanted to let you know a few more exciting things happening this year!

We have a ton of great raffle items provided by Mint on Card, Jamie's BJD Prop Shop, Beachgirl Nikita, Ersa Flora, Mimiwoo, and UnstrungHero BJD!

Hangout space!
We have a large space this year and that means a ton of space for adding in an expanded hangout space with tables and chairs! In addition to this, there is a large lobby with plenty of space to hang out and chat, as well as some benches outside to sit and chat with friends. What is so great about this? Well, this year we're also having...

The Uncanny Swap!
That's right, we're having a swap at the show! This is a no-cash, items only swap. The only rule is: no cash can be exchanged and the swap must be item(s) for item(s).* The swap will take place towards the end of the show.
(*Please understand that these are a hard restriction and do not advertise items as for sale or exchange cash for them.) 

Don't Forget!
We have a great group of vendors in attendance at the show this year and they will have an amazing selection of accessories, eyes, wigs, clothes, furniture, dolls and more! All of our vendors are lovely and knowledgeable people. Quite a few have items that you can try on your dolls prior to buying, all you have to do is ask! Also, make sure that you bring enough cash - there's a lot available for purchase! All of the vendors take cash, but there are a number of them that take credit/debt or PayPal! We encourage you to ask if they do!

More to Come!
Keep checking here and on Facebook as we get closer to the show! In the next week or so we will be announcing panels, artists, and putting up the Motif Contest entries. Preregistration will end on the 1st of August, so register if you haven't and remind your friends that they should as well to speed up entry to the show! If you're working on a Motif Contest entry, make sure to get your entry in by the end of the day this Saturday!
