Wilde Times at #TonnerCon – Tonner Doll Company

Our collectors sure know how to have a Wilde Time – we tip our hats to them!  Today’s Wilde Imagination brunch was filled to the brim with fun.  Attendees were asked to don their most favorite hats for a hat contest, and there were lids o’plenty.  A sea of lids, if you will.  I digress.  There were creatively decorated hats, vintage hats, hilarious hats, beautiful hats, and MORE.  Check out some pics:

Vintage Confusion Ellowyne is pleasantly peachy, with her beaming blue inset eyes and luscious lashes and complimenting rooted radiant mane of flame red tresses.  Ellowyne arrives wearing a delicate peach frock of ruched chiffon and accented with a playful yellow sash and floral deco.  Pale yellow lacey tights, matching lace-up boots and a bemusing hat of feathers, flowers and bows completes her flawlessly vintage look.  Perfect for a trip to the ice cream parlor with Pru!

Wearing a delicate purple lace frock with an enchanting high neck beneath a frothy white jacket of ruched chiffon, Lizette turns up the fun with ivory lace tights, purple lace up booties, and expresses her inner Vintage Diva with a white hat adorned with the softest purple and ivory petals.  Just the ensemble for a haunted tour of the Old Quarter on a visit back home.

Each San Francisco resident is an LE of 150.

Featuring luminous gray inset eyes peering out behind lush lashes, a wigged mane of brown tresses in soft curls and a dark and eye-catching ensemble, Dark Attic Evangeline ought to come down out of the rafters!

Pleasantly plum, The Dark Attic Evangeline Ghastly is ripe for the picking in her flowing dress of mauve lace with a breezy layer of purple chiffon.  Dark Attic Evangeline accentuates her finest assets with a waist-cinching belt, and completes her dark but elegant look with stretch lace gauntlets, jewels of purple and gold and matching evening pumps.  LE 150

Today’s programs were super interesting, and delved into the technical side of creating dolls.  Robert gave a great presentation about creating dolls:  Sculpting to Production.  It’s truly fascinating to see how the dolls that you play with at home begin, from concept, to clay to production.  Robert treated us to an incredible video of him sculpting done in time-lapse fashion – it was so amazing to see!

Robert also explored the use of Dolls in Advertising, which was equally captivating.  Check out this amazing ad from Louis Vuitton featuring dolls:
