Michele Hardy:


"America's Top BJD Model"

This is a "just-for-fun" (ie, not serious at all) contest that anyone can enter. Your model will be asked to fill out
an informative brief questionnaire and you will pose your model on the runway. The only rule is the doll must be a
BJD from an American maker (Creedy, Goodreau, Lasher, etc).
The doll can be small, large, resin, vinyl - whatever, as long as it's a BJD and American.
Even previous entrants and winners may enter again.

Top BJD Models will be chosen for Best Overall, Best Attitude, Best Accessorized,
and Odd Doll Out (only a mother would love me), and possibly some on the spot categories. Absolutely no
objective criteria for winning - just the whim of the "judges" (again, this is not serious).

Judges' decisions may be final but we've heard they can be influenced.
No preparation required - last minute (as you walk in the door) entries encouraged!
Last time, we had a variety of entrants in all kinds of outfits - some serious, some humorous, some spur of
the moment. I think they all found the experience to be very fulfilling and I'm sure some have gone
on to fame and fortune in the tabloids.

So everyone who is attending, please bring an American BJD (with a stand for posing, if possible)
- you never know, she (or he) may be America's next TOP BJD model. The title probably won't mean a thing, though.
