IT: 16 at 1600 Tea Party

by Alison Rasmussen



A new event for convention, 16 at 1600 Tea Party, this optional breakout event was held in the hotel's Cascade American bistro. Guests were offered buffet-style sandwiches, cookies and cupcakes, lemonade, iced tea, and coffee.

The centerpiece doll is Sheen Siren Elsa (the same doll as the FR:16 in the gold and black gown)--and her outfit and facial screening is just amazing. From the detailing of her truly micro-sequined jacket, to the scale of her striped blouse and jewelry, this doll is really gorgeous. Check out the mesh on her shoes!



Guests were each treated to a free three-pack of FR:16 shoes with incredible detailing. You must get your hands on a pack of these shoes--especially the pink and gold ones.


Additionally, we were given a sneak peek of what's to come with this size of doll--Poppy's granddaughter, Talulla. She is a fashionista and blogger, will have access to both vintage styles from her grandmother's closet and contemporary pieces from today's styles.

The three new prototypes that the designers displayed from table to table were quite adorable--from neon handbags and heels, leopard print "fur" coats, to high heeled sneakers, the details look really fun!

I really wish photography had been permitted--I loved these girls!
