Fashion Doll Fridays: Superdoll Retrospective in Paris

Not much to read in this post…it’s mostly eye candy! Last weekend’s Paris Fashion Doll Festival (PFDF) hosted Superdoll_Collectables and its PFDF Exclusives over the years in homage to the Festival’s 20th Anniversary. We were there, and got great images of the past dolls created exclusively for PFDF.  Pour a cup of coffee…and enjoy the show!
