Simply Vanilla No More (Blythe)
Gabrielle. My first customized-work Blythe. My husband gave her the name (^0^)
Because I really wanted to get rid of my Blythe dolls shiny faces, I had no choice but to learn how to customize them myself. There are so many customize experts out there who for a fee would be happy to give Blythe dolls a face up. I even asked an artist to do my doll but since I have several dolls now, I just couldn’t afford to have them all serviced. Solution? Me doing it and I think I really can…
What you see is the before and after work that I’ve done. I am still waiting for a pack of mohair that I ordered from the USA to reroot on her scalp though.
Works I’ve done:
Opening of head carefully, scalp removal.
Nose given holes.
Sightly opened her eyes socket. Didn’t want to overdo it. Not too ‘boggled’.
Slightly curved chin.
2 New eyeschips by coolcat.
Airbrushed eyelid with the same lips color.
Sealed her face by airbrushing it with a special matte varnish (German made.)
I now fully understand why ‘facing up’ / customizing cost €€$$ …it really is the amount of work to be done to the dolls and TIME that is so expensive. My airbrush sure isn’t cheap, paints, and all paraphernalia that I’m using. It sure costed me time and sweat, lol as this was the first original Blythe that I’ve done. I actually practiced first on a Blythe clone, she also turned out okay.
My next doll gets her head to be opened in a while…I’m excited to give her a new look!

This was from the last batch of Tessa’s photos before I re-customized her, removing those dark freckles. Also she was the very first of my Blythes to sit on the freshly delivered wooden sofa. Pretty cool, isn’t it?

You might say Charlie is out of place…but he really isn’t! Love knows no color, shape, difference and etc, right? Just a snapshot I took before customizing one of those dolls

Yesterday afternoon, just after the sun got cooler, I brought my 3 Blythe dolls out to the garden and had fun photographing my girls. The only non-fun part of it was whenever I tried to make them stand, sit, or hold something! Because they are not meant to stand on their own – heads are…

She’s my second Blythe. Meet Tessa, my baby brunette Blythe. In this pictorial I had no choice but to use stock of my Monster High doll because the original clothing of this Blythe isn’t really that nice. I think it came out quite well. I simply brushed her hair after taking her out of…
