Attend virtually! Quick--you have till 5PM, May 20, 2010 to sign up for the raffle for virtual attendees. (And yes, they really do give away prizes! I won a few years ago, and received a Basic Scarlett.)
To sign up, visit this link and leave a comment (you can log in anonymously, if you like, but make sure you leave your name somewhere so they can find your name), with your name and email address where you can be contacted if your name is drawn. They usually draw names the Monday after convention.
It's worth following the blog, too--you can see previews of new dolls, including the new Firefly line, as the convention progresses.
