In a Corner

In a corner, originally uploaded by sylviecola(trying to catch up.).

Meet Lucy Limeade. Remember a week or two ago I mentioned the factory or proto-type Blythes that I was expecting? Well here she is. Actually,  it’s just her scalp put on a Simply Lilac bait Blythe I had lying around. I’m deciding what to do with the faceplate she came with. I believe it is Tarts and Tea’s. It looks to be natural and the only one that matched to the pictures.

When my factory girls came they had some flaws with the eye-mech where they weren’t turning properly. I have since fixed the little problems.

The other doll I got was a Ribbonetta Wish Scalp on Urban Cowgirl. The eye lids also are RW’s. I’m deciding what to do with her. I fixed her hair. She didn’t have the bangs cut and not much thatching was in place so I sorted that out. I had to give her bangs because her thatching stops midway because she was meant to have thick bangs.

For now I plan to keep my Amaryllis girl. Normally, I find it difficult to bond with my customs unless their make-up is very light. But with this hair, I just have to enjoy it for a while.

Fresh and Fruity



Happy Easter!, originally uploaded by sylviecola(trying to catch up.).

Here’s my new girl “Simply Mango.” I haven’t given her a name yet. She came with “Simply Guava” who has fluorescent pink hair. CWC will sometimes release dolls as a set which brings the price down per doll. I try to take advantage of these so I can have them around to customize.

But I really like this girl just as she is. I love the color of her hair. I’m not wild about Guava. I’m sure once Guava is customized though I’ll change my tune. But this Mango girl. I just LOVE her hair color! It’s the color of a mango lassi. Maybe I’ll call her Lassi. I’m sure everyone else that gets her will call her that too. I can be sure there will be at least one.

For now I will change out her chips. I enjoy the shiny newness of a freshly released Blythe. Then when I tire of her I’ll probably customize her and debate whether I should sell her nor not. Right now I can’t imagine doing that. I just really get happy when I look at her hair. PAM does the same thing. I don’t play with my PAM that often but I get a little pick me up when I look at her teal hair.

twittering along

Well, I’ve joined the twitter bandwagon. Not sure how it works just yet.  Actually, I have an idea but I’m just trying to get the hang of it.  Feel free to follow me if you are in the twitter world.

So much to talk about. I don’t have much time to update, (why am I going on twitter then?) but I’m excited to say my custom dolls made cameos in the February 2010 issue of Haute Doll Magazine. My good friend and avid doll collector Iveta Babiakova wrote an article covering BlytheCon 2009. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend but our friend Maggie joined Iveta and she has several of my customs Blythes and brought them along.

They made the front row in the picture above and you can click on the picture to see which are mine. So that’s a little exciting. There’s another picture where there’s some green haired girls and Maggie’s Apple shows up.  I’m also mentioned on the first page as being the one to get Iveta addicted to Blythe. Good thing they’re not really drugs or I’d be put in the slammer as a pusher. Funny enough that’s Iveta’s official title among her doll friends.

A big congrats to Iveta on the article. It’s very well written and a must read for all the Blythe obsessed so do check it out. I picked my copy up at my local Barnes and Noble.
