A few weeks ago, I announced on my instagram that I would be hosting a meet-and-greet at the AmericanGirl store in San Francisco in March. I did not announce the date, because I was still unsure of some logistics. The past few weeks, I have been completely swamped in homework and the school musical. I nearly forgot about the meet-up, and a lot of people were getting anxious because I hadn't posted any updates. However, I finally found a moment to breathe today, and I decided to get things back in order. So, here is the date!
I plan to be at the AG store in the morning- afternoon, between 10 to 2. More specific times will be posted later.
If you plan on flying in (which, by the way, is super exciting for me-- I can't believe people are flying from across the country to come hang out with me!) you should probably start searching for plane tickets. I understand that tickets are cheaper if you buy them in advance; I hope you can still find some for a reasonable price.
On the day of the meet-and-greet, plan to bring your doll, your camera, and a pen (If you would like me to sign your dolls foot). Get ready to have a blast!!!
I am trying to figure out some details involving crowd management. If you plan to attend, please say so in the survey below. Please be honest! I would like to be prepared for whatever size of crowd shows up. Thank you!
I will post more detailed updates in a few weeks.
I hope to see you guys there!
The story behind it all....
In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.
It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
