MonitoManika 2012

Welcome to MonitoManika, ManikaManila's Christmas party, dolly style! The event was held in moderator Trisha's house last December 22, 2012. This year's Monito was the biggest one yet, with over 27 members with 59 dolls in attendance! *u*

Christmas belles Elise, Blair and Leigh. <3

MonitoManika is a play on the Filipino tradition of exchanging gifts (or kris kringle) called monito-monita. Instead of the humans exchanging gifts, it's the dolls who do the gift-giving with each other. Most people gave small trinkets that could be used as props for the dolls, but there were some who gave away gift certificates that we can use to commission these talented members of the community for free! :D

Lots of dollies on the couch! That's only around half of the total number though!

More photos after the jump!

Humans again, setting up for the Monito!

Axis got Blair and gave her a Dear Resin GC that we can use to commission the awesome Madz for a dress!

Blair got Alice, who is also owned by Madz. We got her a boater hat. :D

Miette and Harper got each other haha!
Miette gave Harper a boater hat as well, and Harper got Miette a bag full of little trinkets. ^o^
