Wendy Dreary came for a fixup, originally uploaded by sylviecola(trying to catch up.).
This lovely sad girl I customized a few years ago was showing some wear and tear in her photos. So, I asked her owner to send her back to me to fix up. She really loves her Wendy Dreary and was reluctant at first and said she couldn’t stand to be away from her. But she finally sent her over.
It’s kind of nice to reunite with what was one of my first Blythe dolls. She was previously a Rainy Day Parade and was the one doll that perked my interest in Blythe. I think I wanted her most of all but went for some less expensive dolls. I gave in eventually. Now I know if there’s a doll I really want, I just need to plan on getting it instead of trying to satisfy my want with a cheaper doll.
Eventually, she turned into Wendy Dreary for a collector friend who was wanting me to do a goth girl for her. And Wendy has been very dreary. She got stuck at the post office without a notice to her mom. We wondered where Wendy disappeared to but her mom persisted and she had been sitting at her local post the whole time. So from the start she’s had a rough life in this incarnation.
Now she’s all freshened up and I will ship her back and hope there isn’t another strange ordeal of being lost in the wilderness.
