Onessimus Joins Ventriloquist Central Collection

For me the best part of the ConVENTion is going to the dealers room in my search for that elusive ventriloquist figure that will become a part of the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

This year was no exception. But this year it happened the moment the dealers room opened the very first night. As we all were cramming through the door to enter I was right next to a woman walking in with a figure in her hands.

I commented to her about the figure and she said she was looking to sell him. I said wow I am looking to buy. We moved out of the way of everyone else and chatted for a few moments only for me to realize that it was Nina Cooper a well know member of World Vents.

I also told her who I was and we chuckled. I had to have her figure. We worked out a price and he became part of the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

I used him at the photo shoot for the ConVENTion too since I go to the ConVENTion without a figure because of flying instead of driving. It was great to have purchased him in time.

Nina also supplied me with more pictures and information which I will share with you in the future.

Thanks Nina for allowing this great figure to come to reside in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.
