Custom #2 is finished
It has been a wonderful journey
with this Blythe.
She began as a Simply Mango
and now she is the girl
that I dreamed about
before I even started to carve her.
When I first envisioned her dress
I knew it should be cream Dupioni silk
Karen of Fish Market took my design ideas
and translated them into the dress for me
right down to the point at the end of the sleeve
Once I had the dress, I added the ruffled silk ribbon
to the neckline and added
a piece of braided trim to the high waist.
One of her pull charms is from
a necklace that I wore for a while.
It seemed a perfect addition.
It will be fun over the next few weeks
to take photos of my newest girl
with her floor length, raven black, alpaca hair.
and one set of eye chips
that remind me of Elizabeth Taylor
and so here they stand together
my first two custom Blythes.
Snow and Winter Raven.
The next girl has already begun
in my head.
She will have pink hair
and a pale complexion.
That is all I will reveal right now.
