Here she is my new Blythe doll, Roaring Red.
She’s an ADG Blythe, which are reproductions of the original 70s Blythes. The Takara Blythes are the ones that are made in Japan and are much more expensive. I got the cheaper ADG version, you know, babysteps down the Blythe rabbit hole. I’ve always been fascinated by the Blythe world. All the outfits, the customization, the photo shoots. I’m still just figuring out what’s going on. I don’t have a name for this gal yet, or a personality in mind really. She’s sporting a new SugarMag outfit for Fall from TIB but no shoes, poor girl. And I don’t know what to do with this hair. I’m reading about customization and trying to figure out what all is involved. I think she might need new lips or something. And glasses! She definitely needs glasses. I’ve ordered a Doll Coordinate Recipe magazine so I can start sewing outfits for her. I really need to figure out how to pose her. It took me 15 minutes just to get her to sit on the table edge. She’s so top heavy. Lots to figure out and so much unbelievable eye candy. I’ll just send you now to one of my favorite Blythe designers, jamfancy. I mean come on! It’s amazing. I can seriously hardly stand it.
And I’ll tell you what else, Blythe is a gateway. I’ve already discovered what my downfall is really going to be, Pullip dolls. She has such an unbelievably sweet face. She sucked me right in. Can you guess which one I bought?
