This is one of those days where I am really kicking myself!! The 2009 Barbie Convention was held in Washington DC this past week with yesterday being open to the public and I MISSED IT! Had I been paying attention, I could have easily gone down there and taken a look at Barbie’s slick new pink VW Beetle for myself, taken pictures of her lifesize 50th anniversary dress myself, and taken in all the Barbie goodness… you guessed it… MYSELF. UGHHHH.
Anyhow, since I totally blew it, here is a recap video from AP that will give you a bit of an idea of what I missed.
The Barbie Convention is an annual event, but this year’s event was so much more special as it is Barbie’s 50th birthday. Here is more coverage of the event I missed…
- Ms. Cavanaugh Goes to Washington has plenty of pictures from the Barbie Convention posted already.
- Deacon Does DC has a good summary
- 2009 Convention Souvenir Barbies
- SouthCoast Today on the Barbie Convention
- KansasCity.com has a gallery with a few gorgeous photos from the convention
- If you look on Flickr and do a search for the 2009 Barbie Convention you will find 1,000s of photos from people who attended the convention and all their goodies
Note to self – pay a little more attention to these events happening in your own “backyard”! So, it you or anyone you know went to the Barbie Convention and have photos, stories, or experiences to share with us, please do not hesitate to send it in to share @ dolldiaries.com!
