About the Presenter

Peter Harrigan has created college theatre productions for 38 years, with 33 at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester. A lifelong Pop Culture fan, he has a very healthy inner child. Peter began gathering fashion dolls in 1993, discovered other collectors online in 1996, and first attended National Barbie Conventions in 2005. He releases his dolls from their packaging and especially enjoys finding, adapting, and making props, furniture, clothing, and backdrops for them; it is a miniature version of his theatre work! He looks forward to sharing his adventures as a male doll collector and showing examples from his collection.
