Following the Dark Romance theme, Friday night's dinner encouraged guests to dress in their wildest Halloween creations to the theme of "Sea of Blood". As was to be expected, the attendees went all out and the costumes were fantastic as I could see in many flickr posts! Guests entering the ballroom were taken back by how spooky but fabulous the room looked. The centerpiece doll this time was another brand new character created just for this convention! Trapped inside an iron cage that looked like a coffin, Provocatrice Anja (pronounced An-yah) seemed to be reaching out to each guest at the table to release her from her prison (I know everyone would love to do that).
Anja is using the Simi sculpt from the Dark Hunters collection, so everyone who liked that one but did not warm up to a monster doll can enjoy this one. I still think she looks like Veronique. Each guest was given an autographed, special edition hardcover copy of Sherrilyn Kenyon's latest book "No Mercy" with a leather collector's box. They also received a gothic Dark Hunters doll chair.
Attendees were delighted to also receive the doll portion of their convention gift set; a gorgeous Agnes Von Weiss doll. She is platinum and in lovely underwear. She reminds me a lot of Dressing The Part Agnes. A raven one was the gift for those that helped teaching classes in workshops (thanks Uriah and well done!).
