Face Up Speed Challenge

Participants in this challenge are given 90 minutes to complete a face up. Participants may bring their own materials or use those supplied by Doll North. Doll North has a limited number of supplies so it would be best of participants brought their own (brushes in particular). The competition takes place on-site at Doll North in the Crowne Plaza. Those wishing to participate can pre-register online or show up at the event and register in person.

Participants in this challenge must bring their own heads to the Killarny workshop room in the Crowne Plaza to participate. A limited number of blank SD sized Parabox heads will be available for purchase at the event for $17 CAD each, but their availability is not guaranteed.
