Today, Sunday 19th February 2012, at 6pm GMT the winners of the first ‘Annual DollObservers.com Fashion Doll Awards’ or ‘DOFDAs’ were announced. Eager fashion doll lovers and community members were treated to live announcements via online chat and tweets (#DOFDAs). Each nominee was chosen by the DollObservers members and winners were selected by public vote.
Winners in several categories included superdoll_collectables and Integrity Toys as well as award nods for Mattel and Tonner Doll. One of the winners, George Gonzalez from Angelic Dreamz, was even online to ‘accept’ his Award for ‘Best Online Retailer of the Year’. George later stated that, as well as his win, he was “honoured” to have also been nominated in a total of 6 categories, including ‘Best 16″ Fashion Doll’ and ‘Best Fashion Doll Designer’.
The Awards also mark the second Anniversary of DollObservers.com which came into being on 20th February 2010. We have come a long way since then, thanks to a dedicated community of members.
