The convention will take place over two days beginning the afternoon of Saturday, August 24th with a pre-meet event (details TBA) followed by a Grand Gala Event from 7-11pm with contests, prizes, hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and dancing. An evening of frivolity and socializing with our favorite dolls in the style of the Great Gatsby.
Continuing on Sunday, August 25th from 11am-5pm, attendees will enjoy shopping at their favorite vendor booths, make and takes, lunch, group photos, and demonstrations.
The convention theme is The Modern Jazz Age: a celebration of the new Roaring 20s! The Great Gatsby (by F. Scott Fitzgerald) will provide influence for our convention theme (lavish parties, flapper girls, and zoot suits too!). To celebrate Minneapolis’ own beloved Prince (the musician), the doll for BlytheCon Minneapolis will be purple-haired Blythes. Don’t forget your Raspberry Berets! We hope the theme and doll choice will provide lots of inspiration for the coming convention!
