I succumbed

I've been looking at Blythe dolls for a few years now, but had always talked myself out of it. Thankfully Sondra treated me this Christmas to my first doll, a Precocious Candy Mushroom. I say first as I'm sure there will be more Blythe's in my future. Those that have them will understand. They're addictive.  *Cough* I see a Gentle River Blythe in my future….

I'm researching a few customisations like face matting, eyelash replacing, new eye chips etc. I've already removed her braid and given her hair a little trim, I'm thinking of bringing her with me to my next haircut and asking my hairdresser to give her a trim. She's wearing the first dress I've sewn for her, made using this pattern and some Liberty Tana Lawn. It's an awesome print. So you'll probably be subjected to a few more Blythe posts.

These pictures aren't the best, I've just finished her dress tonight and don't have the energy to spend a lot of time setting up better lighting, but they give you an idea of what she's like.

Any of you guys got one?

PCM hi there

    Heehee! I know what you mean! I recently caved too and purchased 2 Pullip dolls just after Christmas 🙂 It’s kinda strange for grown women to be so smitten with these dolls so much but I do see them as colletables and not just dolls 🙂 Such a great dress and the fabric is perfect for her!

    She is a beauty! Congratulations!
    I’ve been trying to resist for years, but worry it will unleash my Blythe obsession in full force which will lead to Pullips and who know what else!

    She’s the kind of Doll that I would have to face towards the wall at night, in case she came to life and tried to stab me with a carving knife! Other than that, very sweet! 😉

    She’s very creepy-cute in the way that those big eye pictures of children and cats are creepy-cute. I could see myself sewing the little dresses, acquiring the little objects, braiding the long hair into little braids … eeeeeek. I feel an obsession coming on. Resist, Anna, resist.
