My custom Blythe

I was so desperate to get Casual Affair, the first Blythe that I had ordered, that when the first place I ordered it from didn't have it in stock on the release date, I ordered it from somewhere else. But the first company wouldn't let me cancel, so I ended up with two! That was many months ago, and I'd intended to sell her - as you can see she didn't come out of her box. But recently I started to feel the urge for a new doll - and realised that I could have one without the hassle and expense of buying a new one. All I needed to do was buy a wig!

I then decided to do some custom work on her face - she has been sand matted, has pastel make-up, all new eyechips, lips carved and painted, gaze correction, new lashes, and painted eyelids.

The outfit took me about a week to make. The pink dress is made from Laura Ashley fabric, and is decorated with small pink bows, pearl beads, lace and broderie anglaise trim. It laces up the back with a pink ribbon. Under the dress she wears a white underskirt made from cotton with a net frill. Her socks are made from an old t-shirt, with decorative elastic at the top. The soles of her shoes are made from polymer clay, with fabric, paper and elastic, with little polymer clay roses on the top.
