Custom Blythes

I had a good chuckle when I realized that many people that have bought custom Blythe Dolls did not realize that they were buying Ali Blythes that someone took the heads off and reworked. Two of these people had actually acted as if, let's just say, the old Kennel Ration Commercial, "My Dog's Better Than Your Dog, My Dog's Better Than Yours. My Dogs Better Cause He Eats Kennel Ration, My Dog is Better Than Yours." When I pointed this fact out to them, their faces were GOLDEN! I could also see Dollar Signs rattling in their faces.....as if, I paid $xxxx for this doll and they are $xx on Ali!

Custom Blythes are usually worth the cost. There is A LOT OF WORK and TIME that goes into a Custom Blythe. Most people, including myself, use High End Supplies to work on the Blythes faces and Bodies.

Just taking the Blythes apart can be nerve racking. Working on the eyes, changing chips, painting chips, painting eye lids, just for starters.

Most Face Ups are done in layers....and layers.....and layers. Most Artists do it right and let the paints and lacquers dry completely before working on another layer. This can take days.

I might not be great at it, but I also LOVE doing customs on Blythe Dolls, of all sizes.
