BLYTHE -- quick question answered in images!

I was recently on the phone with an old friend and long time, passionate doll collector....HI MAGGIE!

...she had never really looked at Blythe and the realm of custom Blythe dolls...
and she was not sure what all the fuss was about!

So, I thought I would quickly post a few images here that came up on a google search -- some before and after customization pics -- that I had sent along to her... (sorry, I cannot credit the 3 images to follow to the photographers, if these are your shots -- let me know so I can!) are these same images to show you -- in just a few pics -- 
what the artists who customize do...
they sand, and carve, and paint, adding custom eye chips, gaze correction and more..
I am astounded at what they do to a base/stock doll...Maggie was too...there is a lot going on here in the realm of Blythe that deserves attention and celebration!

Thanks to all of the custom artists for applying their talents to the medium of Blythe...

AND if you want to be kept in the loop on all Blythe customs as they arrive from the artists' studios, just
t email me at

I am smitten with the many faces of Blythe and hope -- even if she's not your thing -- you can appreciate what the artists do...
