THE JIMI HENDRIX SLOT TOURNAMENT on Wednesday....Come and rock for a couple of hours as you push buttons and get high with excitement as you watch your slot machine's wheels spin for FREE. The top 15 high scores and the lowest score win fabulous prizes, but there's never any losers.......... afterwards all those in the Slot Tournament are treated to cake and Champagne and be a Foxey Lady or man! Come dressed in your 60's attire.
AMERICAN PROTEST OPENING RECEPTION “Where Have All The Dollies Gone” on Wednesday....Come join the spirits of Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Marvin Gay, The Byrds and more for a gathering of love, peace and freindship around a buffet meal. Once the meal is finished, the peaceful protestors will produce all the goodies they scavenged up from the Woodstock cleanup and it's then time for the FREEBIE BAGS in which each table gets a huge bag filled with doll items and goodies. When the time is announced, each table dumps their bags onto their tables and whatever is in those bags you get to take for free. Once done with your table, you're free to go to other tables to see what they have leftover to take or steal......Hippy Protest attire would be fun!
AQUARIUS/LET THE SUNSHINE IN RAFFLE ROOM.....Enter a new Dimension (most likely the 5th) and purchase tickets and trying to win the numerous, fabulous raffles in the room. Every year we have over 300 items....if not over 400 items in the raffle room. Everything from dolls to fabrics to hand painted artwork for your dolls, one-of-a-kind items and your favorite dolls and doll accessories. There is a wonderful variety of items to win that will send you...Up Up and Away!
DANCING IN THE CASINO TREASURE HUNT....You'll be bopping and dancing like Martha and the Vandellas through the casino trying to find certain items on the list. You don't have to take or photograph anything and just have to write down on the form where you saw it. It's easy and fun and some even cheat with the help of their stoned friends. The winner who will be revealed the last night of the convention wins a fabulous prize......there's plenty of time for this and you only have to hunt through the casino and not outside the casino area....there's even time to Puff the Magic Dragon!
MOTOWN LUNCHEON “I Heard it Through The Doll Show” on Thursday.....Join the spirits of The Supremes, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Smokey Robinson and many more for a full buffet with plenty to eat . Come dressed in your finest 1960's performance attire and boas and join The Happening of the day.....and see What's Blowin' In The Wind!
LIGHT MY FIRE 15 DOLLAR SALESROOM.....Open the doors and join The Doors in this unbelievable sales adventure!!! Yes, you read it right, NOTHING will be over $15 in this salesroom. Each person pays $15 to enter, but they get 3 raffle tickets and tons of prizes are given out as you shop your heart out. I started this 3 years ago and it's such a hit I made it a permanent part of the IFDC. You wouldn't believe the merchandise for under $15.......many items are sold at other conventions for way more than $15. I have seen vintage Barbie items in this salesroom that sell for a lot more at the Barbie convention. Be the Riders on the Storm and Take It As It Comes!
JANIS JOPLIN BOWLING TOURNAMENT on Thursday.....Come dressed in your wildest 60's attire or even in your pajamas and join us bowling at midnight and believe me, you don't have to be a good bowler. Most of us can't bowl to save our lives, but then again, some are too high to see the pins. The best team wins trophies and doll prizes. You can even just attend and root for Me and Bobby McGee as there is seating for those who just want to watch.....Raise Your Hand and don't be a Cry Baby!
SHOP AROUND SALES ROOM....Join The Miracles and see the miracles as this is the large salesroom that opens on Friday and Saturday and features Doll Companies, Dealers, OOAK Artists and more. This is the sales room where Integrity Toys will present their Exclusive IFDC doll which you can purchase. Other companies that do Exclusive Dolls for the IFDC are Azone.....Just open your ears and hear the dollies say to you Reach Out (I'll Be There)!
FOLK SINGER'S DINNER “If I Had A Dolly” on Friday.....Come join Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seager, Joan Baez, The Mamas and the Papas, Simon and Garfunkel and others at this peaceful and folksy buffet meal not from Alice's Restaurant....Walk Right In and definitely avoid The Sound of Silence since Prizes will be given out for the Bowling Tournament and Surprise-Give-A-Way that night! Get out your fancier 60's outfits...okay so that would be long moo-moos high boots, fringed vests, headbands and flowers in your hair!
BRITISH PSYCEDELIC EXPLOTION BANQUET “Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Dolly” on Saturday.....Come join The Rolling Stones, Herman's Hermits, Dusty Springfield, The Beatles, The Who, Peter and Gordon and TWIGGY in your finest and wildest 60's MOD Carnaby Street attire! The winner of the DANCING IN THE CASINO TREASURE HUNT will be announced and awarded a super prize. Plus, 2 names will be pulled from the Yahoo Internet Contest and the first name will win an extra Souvenir Doll and the second name will win a free Companion Doll. Then we have the I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION BEST TABLE DECORATION. This night everyone can decorate their tables and one table is chosen the winner and each person at the table gets a prize. Then the Souvenir and Companion Dolls from Integrity Toys will be revealed. Everyone receives the Souvenir Doll and then have the opportunity to purchase the Companion Doll......yes, so with the exclusive Integrity Doll they sell, along with the Souvenir and Companions dolls, that's 3 exclusive Integrity Toys dolls at this convention.......You'll definitely be a Daydream Believer and Wild Thing!
COME TOGETHER GIFT SHOP... This is where She Loves You......and you can purchase your Companion Doll and register for the 2018 IFDC (Those that register this night, get right on the extra dolls lists for 2019 as a thank you). Then after that, those who have signed up on the Extra Dolls Lists for extra dolls can purchase those depending on how many are leftover. The list for extra dolls is done by the order people registered for the convention.
FRANKLIN LIM LIAO BEST COSTUME AWARDS.... “To Sir With Love” Each day 2 people are awarded prizes for Best Costumes....so get the wheels turning and plan to come as the themes for each meal event. Now those not into costumes, don't worry it's not mandetory!
THE ORLEANS RESORT & CASINO....This is a wonderful hotel with wonderful room rates (usually around $40 plus taxes/fees Sunday thru Thursday and $84 plus taxes/fees for Friday and Saturday) so you have more money for dolls. The rooms are large with a sitting area and great views of either the strip or mountains. They have numerous restaurants and many are very reasonably priced. If you're like me and don't enjoy sitting in restaurants, they also have a Food Court with Fudrukkers, Sbarros, Hagen Daz Ice Cream and Subway. If you bring family that don't want to attend, they won't be bored either since the hotel has a 70 lane bowling alley and 16 screen movie theater. Plus, if you like to drink, the hotel has a liquor store that is so low priced that locals come to the hotel to purchase their liquor. Of course, while gambling drinks are free, even at penny slot machines. You won't get better rates at any other convention.
So, as you can see this is what's planned for the 2018 IFDC and of course things will be added as time goes on. So why not get registered and not miss out on this great event.
