    Official docfish2u party - Discussion and POST your trades

    Our discussion thread about the event.

    Sis (jadeites-lady) and I arrived to the event at approximately 3:30 p.m., after having a light lunch and pin trading around the resorts and DTD (no park passes)

    We were able to get the last table, at the far left corner of the room, where we sat between nursek8 and the d.ducks entourage. I was so surprised that it was completely packed since the event wasn't supposed to start until 4 p.m.!

    Nursek8 was one of my first trades through PinPics and I asked how she was and how the carousel ended up coming out (she had commissioned a piece based upon the DCA ride King Triton's Carousel).

    We saw pincrazy, docfish2u + Amy, timeerkat, AvatarAng1 + family, whatzshakinbacon, this_and_that, youngqueen, d.ducks & entourage, Maleficent913 + hubby (who does have a username here, but I've forgotten it), Jrdnsmom + family (Dad is Abe Lincoln), pin-a-colada, snwht85, plus a few others.

    We traded with quite a few people as well, pictures are below (that's why I saved a few extra posts).

    I was able to trade with:
    - this_and_that
    - whatzshakinbacon
    - timeerkat
    - AvatarAng1
    - Patrick (FB, not sure of DPF user name)
    - docfish2u

    I was able to meet up with:
    - Jrdnsmom (she is the one who took the pictures and printed them for us) <--first person I saw coming in the door!
    - pincrazy
    - nursek8
    - SoraPandora
    - suzanneb
    - d.ducks & entourage
    - pin-a-colada x 2
    - Romancing_Train
    - Ladybarclay
    - sockgnome
    - Lou (FB, not sure of DPF user name)
    - Isabel (FB, not sure of DPF user name)
    - Kylie (FB, not sure of DPF user name)

    I got this really cute Mother Gothel tsum tsum from Sorapandora and sis & I got really cute buttons too!

    I'll come back later to edit this post with more of a description of the event.

    Wow! What an amazing event! It was surreal to meet so many people from the internet haha but very fun (if not a bit overwhelming at first).

    I prob should've taken more pics, but I couldn't. There was just so much going on, and I couldn't even. I arrived with my bf and Arendelle around 4:10, and we were told we were late! The private room had tables lined up around the 3 walls, and people had already claimed their spots. I didn't even know I had to have a table! Luckily, we were allowed to overflow outside, and got a table that wasn't claimed yet. See below to see my wares!



    Everyone wore lanyards, as I expected. I had modified by DS 30th Anniversary backpack, so I wouldn't have to wear one. They get heavy! However, I don't think I got to share it so much cuz I left it at my table, which my bf was dutifully pin-sitting. I can show off now :P (see below)



    Overall, I met/ traded with/ got zapped by the following:

    - docfish
    - SoraPandora
    - timeerkat
    - pincrazy
    - AvatarAng (whom I had met previously)
    - snwwht85 (with whom we shared our table)
    - rocke01 (with whom I made my first trade there!)
    - sockgnome
    - starry_solo & jaddeites
    - HonestAbe
    - ramos

    Below is my pin haul! I was super nervous and overwhelmed, but after the first 2 hours, it started to chill out a little bit and I got warmed up. I'm pleased with how the trades went and how nice everyone was. People were giving advice on some trades I was being offered, so that was much appreciated! Also, I totally got zapped by several members, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! It was so amazing to experience the generosity of our DPF pin family!




    We even got our picture taken and printed as a party favor. I'm not sure who the photographer was, but she was awesome! We got to wear some props (sorcerer and maleficent hats!).



    Finally, some non pin zaps! Thank you, David, for the name buttons, and Sora for the Mickey Tsum & BatB buttons! Super fun




    All in all, I can't believe how quickly the time passed. Arendelle had told me that 5 hours was nothing. I have finals next week, so I figured I'd spend a couple hours and then head home. I was there were 4 hours, and didn't even eat (ok, just half a slice of cheesecake)! I had a really great time, saw some amazing pins in person, met awesome people, and got to increase my collections, too!

    Thanks again for hosting us, David! Can't wait for the next one

    Great turnout! We packed the room and overflow tables in the bar area . Met new people from the forum, saw familiar faces, and reintroduced to friendships made last year. Got a couple of trades in, and zapped by docfish and Amy the Acme Stitch with ducklings, and Arendelle a Monsters booster pack! So Happy!
    Thanks everyone for a great time, friendly trading experience, and (for me) just keeps getting better! Mission for next year-work on better Traders, seems like the constant mission but this year I accomplished some Trades. YAY! (Wish I didn't enjoy mystery boxes so much). Hope everyone had as good a time as I did. : )

    The event was amazing! I traded a LOT, but it was mostly for my family. I did find these LK pins:


    That's five off the wants list!

    I think I got every LK pin is saw that I didn't already have, besides fantasy pin though. (I saw a lot of Fantasy)

    I met a lot of new DPF members, and talked to some familiar ones. I didn't take a single picture though. I swear someone was calling my name every five seconds. XD

    I guess people made a lot of assumptions about me before they met me. Some of my favorite things I heard include:

    "Wow, I thought you were Asian!"

    "You're 18? I thought you were older!"

    "You're 18? I thought you were younger!"

    "You're AvatarAng1? I thought you would be funnier in person." ,_,

    "Oh, so you're the infamous AvatarAng1, I always see you posting!"



    You guys are the best! XD




    Seriously though, I really enjoyed myself. I had a great time meeting everyone, and hopefully we can do it again next year!

    Thank you Speedwaystar1 for my signature!

    So I was uncharacteristically shy for this event, ironically. Got there at about 4:10pm with bf in tow, and was amazed at how packed it was. The big room was sort of intimidating, just couldn't get in to look at people's pins for a while! Met David and gave him his hug. Set up our table in the overflow area and sort of waited. Didn't get as many looks through my stuff as I had expected, and really didn't end up making more than just a couple trades. Got a pretty big want I didn't think I'd obtain, so that was a huge plus at least! Some friends I didn't expect to see showed up (snwwht85 and Livi), and that eased my nervousness a bit. Was good having someone I knew there to sit and chat with. Then my other friend whom I invited showed up later. Time really flew by! We got tired and left around 8:30. Someone was actually I thought pretty rude to us just before we left, but I don't know their name or anything. Just kind of a sour end to the day...
    Someone messaged me at the end and said I had won two pins from the raffle, but we had already left, bummer. But it sounds like they will make their way to me later, so fingers crossed!

    (Ps, I was the one wearing the tail, thought it would stand out a little haha)

    watzshakinbacon -We ended up sitting next to you, and I don't know why I never said hi or introduced myself. I had wanted to comment on your backpack, cuz I saw it in the crafty thread and thought it really turned out nice! I dig it over the lanyard ;3
    rocke01 - Always nice to see you and Nena
    timeerkat - I was really looking forward to meeting you, since we have similar collections! You were very nice, and thank you so much for the trade!
    Romancing_Train - Nice to meet you in person, after seeing you in the same Facebook groups!
    snwwht85 - I didn't know you and Livi were on this board!
    AvatarAng1 - Nice to see you and the family again too :3

    Here is my small but mighty trade haul

    Whew, what an event it was!

    I have to give a massive thank you to David and Amy for hosting, and for Darice for all of her hard work putting it together and for hosting the free ticket pin board drawings. Also thank you to Jrdnsmom for the photos! (They looked really fun, though I was so busy I didn't get a chance to take my photo.)

    The day was a whirlwind. I met some new faces (or placed faces to usernames), and got to see others who I've seen at previous events or just hanging out. I'm sorry if I didn't get to spend a lot of time with you! I was so busy I didn't get a lot of time away from the table.

    Here is everything I traded for. A huge thanks to everyone who made trades with me (docfish, starry and jadeite, SoraPandora, Omi, AvatarAng and his family, watzshakinbacon, Romancing_Train, pincrazy, and a bunch more!)

    The Brave locket I won from the pin board drawings, and TornadoTitan's Zootopia pin was a zap from David (I don't collect fantasy pins, but I do have a few that people have zapped me).




    I was also zapped a roll of Lion Guard wrapping paper from Dawn (shelterkat)!




    Carissa (Romancing_Train) zapped me this adorable Timon and Pumbaa ornament!




    And Sara (SoraPandora) zapped me this wonderful pouch full of goodies!




    And now for the pièce de résistance!

    I unfortunately do not know the name of the person who traded this to me, so if it was you, thank you so much for making my grail dream a reality!

    SKADOOSH:



    IT'S SO PRETTY I WANT TO CRY.

    Thank you! I really like PODMs. The Mulan is my second version of the same scene with some slight variations. There is one Mulan scene that I have 3 or 4 variations of the scene.

    I'm a sucker for PODMs of Mulan, Beauty & the Beast, and Tangled. Although I do have a couple of Monster's Inc ones too (with Boo!)
