This years theme was "Darling Diva".  Fashion designers, doll creators, illustrators, and musicians alike, all participated in the event to create a one of a kind Blythe. In addtion to all of the fashion show excitement, the very first Blythe Beauty Contest was held.  Nine talented teams were selected as finalists from the many teams that entered from around the world!  The winning categories were: Grand Prix, First Runner Up, Second Runner Up.  They were all selected by a celebrity panel of Blythe professionals, including Junko Wong, Gina Garan, Splash & Sammy, @nai, Saburo Watanabe and the amazing Momolita!

Uberbot’s Munny Show 2

Munny2aftermathheader

The July 8th Munny Show 2 has passed and it was a worthy
sequel to Überbot's first blank figure contest.  There were almost 140
entries from some of Central Florida's most creative artists and outside entries
from as far away as the UK.   Over 1,000 attendees fought large crowds
and minimal parking to sneak a peek at the creative Munny entries and attempt to
choose a favorite.  Gold, Silver and Bronze were decided, in a seriously
close competition, by ballot voting in which they received over 800 ballots in 4
hours. Best Paint and Most Creative were chosen by Team Überbot along with
special judges Nakanari, the designer toy master, and comic art genius Phil Noto.

You can check out all of the entries, and also purchase some through Überbot's special Munny Show website.  You'll also be able to see all of the winners!
