JAMIEshow 2017 convention in Chicago: East Meets West!

The weekend of 23-25 June was the one when this year's JAMIEshow Convention took place in Chicago. The theme was East Meets West, so Gene and friends got to dress up in Japanese inspired outfits, as they are supposed to be making a spy film named Red Lotus, that takes place there. A new character appeared, named Luna Li, a former model and now movie star in Japan. Madra is there of course, trying to steal the spotlight as always, while Trent was in Japanese clothes but in a grey version, matching the famous Lady Grey Gene. There was another gorgeous new doll presented, Ling Lang, as well as some impressive outfits, ranging from $75 to $120. Let's check them out.

This is the most beautiful doll from the convention. Face, hair, outfit, all perfect. The embroidered back is stunning. Just a reminder here that all dolls are resin dolls. Prices ranged from $500 to $600.

Beautiful doll and I love her kimono. It reminds me a bit of the one worn by the very first Kyori Sato doll from Integrity Toys. Black kimonos always stand out because they are not seen so often.

I think I'd prefer her in a long skirt for this style. The bangs in her hairstyle is something I could do without. The jacket is stunning.

Gorgeous looking doll. I love the mask, it gives her that extra evil mysterious look. Her wig cap is perfect and her outfit reminds me of a Dior by Galliano look from way back. The pearls of the earrings are jarringly big. Would have liked them more delicate.

Amazing looking doll. That outfit rocks. I'd love it for an Asian male doll (which is so rare in 1/4 scale) to compliment my Memoirs of a Geisha dolls. I bet people that have Grey Lady Gene would love to have him stand right beside her.

Below are the outfits available at the convention, shown on Ginnie. The quality and craftsmanship stands out. My favourite is the sleeveless black and print long take on the qipao below. For availability of any remaining dolls and outfits from the convention check the JAMIEshow website. Bravo JAMIEshow for another fantastic convention collection.
