Uncanny Dream - Articulated Fantasy 2011 is a brand new Asian Ball-

Jointed Doll Expo in downtown Seattle WA. This one-day event will feature

diorama displays by 7 of the Pacific Northwest’s top BJD Customizers.


The Expo will also include Vendors, space for visitors to set up their wares to trade or sell in a trunkshow, and public meetup and photography space.

Artists were invited to create fantasy worlds for their dolls to inhabit, ranging from traditional fantasy to steampunk and cyber. We have put together an exciting list of talented BJD customizers from Seattle and the NW region to build these diorama displays, including:


                                              Candygears

                                              Christy (Captured in Thought)

                                              Fenris (resin+)

                                              Kiyakotari

                                              KireiX and Keekster (BJD Cast)

                                              KasaMadhuri777 (Alraune Atelier)


A huge variety of customized dolls will be present, including Soom, Dollstown, Fairyland, Dollshe,  Dollzone, and many many more.


We have also lined up exciting vendors to sell their wares, including Jpopdolls,  www.dollsofmine.com, and mychildren.biz. Devout Dolls will be coming with cute dresses for tinies, and KarmaCat will be vending handmade fur wigs. Candygears is also going to be re-launching her couture line of doll hats and accessories. Other vendors and special activities will be announced as we draw closer to the event...


The main Gallery space will feature the artists' BJD dioramas for you to enjoy and photograph. The large Hallway Gallery will feature the vendors, and have some space for visitors to set up their own wares in a trunkshow format. The large Photography Studio next to the main gallery will be a public meetup area, and has lots of space to setup and photograph any dolls you're bringing with you.


The event is taking place in the 619 Western Artist Building in downtown Seattle, in the X17 Gallery space. There is ample parking underneath the Alaskan Way Viaduct right behind the building (free on Sundays) and a pay-lot adjoining the building. It is also in easy walking distance to Uwajimaya Asian Market & Bookstore, International Model Toys, Pike's Place Market, and the Seattle Downtown Shopping core so visitors driving to Seattle for the event have convenient access to all Downtown has to offer.
