Gloss Convention Purchases

No, I didn't get to go to the IT Gloss Convention, but I did enjoy it from afar watching the posting of other who were able to attend. I consoled myself the best I could by visiting eBay and drooling over the offerings. Most of what I saw were too far out of my budget, but I did bid on some items that had at least reasonable starting bids. I was getting discouraged as just as I thought I had made it to the last seconds of the auction, the object of my desire was snatched right before my eyes. I hung in as long as I could, but the prices became insane. However, I persevered! I finally won a few auctions and at prices that I thought were reasonable. The one doll I really wanted from the convention was Evening Siren Ayumi. As I searched and saw her go for prices above $175 nude and $200 dressed, I thought I would have to give up. But, late on Sunday evening, there was one fully dressed with a starting price below $100! I took a chance and bid on her. No, I did not get her for $100, but not too much over, but yeah, I won her! I also was lucky enough to win a few other Color Infusion dolls for some pretty reasonable price, so I broke the bank and got a few of them. 

I will post photos of all of my wins, but today I am excited to present Evening Siren Ayumi! She arrived today and I thought she deserved her own photo session.
