Shelby – My First Custom Blythe

February 5th, 2012 § 6 comments







I learned so much from customizing her. She has a slight worried and scared expression which I love. I did gaze correction, boggling, sleep eyes, hand-painted eye chips, carving, and the faceup. I really loved the process and am saving for another doll or two. I have two in mind- Snowflake Sonata and My Little Candy. I want to get a stock one last which I want to reroot with strawberry red mohair.

In other news, I’ve finished my doll quilt and am starting to work on Coraline again. I’ve been pretty sick recently and haven’t been able to do much.

Keep the germs away, my friends!

    She’s a cutie Rosey, you did a great job, especially for your first try.

    I’m so enamoured with that outfit. I just love it every time you post photos of it.

    I do have a slightly random question though.
    Why do people paint Blythe eyes all different colours?
    I’ve made up some terrible possible answers, but none of them seemed to make enough sense.

      Oh for the eyes, they have 4 sets of eye chips. I like the ability to have different colours. The eye mechanism allows for eye changes when you pull the string.

      If you’re coming to AN, I’ll gladly show you Shelby so u can play around with her. 🙂

  • Melissa says:

    So, I guess it’s just for the ability to have different looks? Instead of having something like you would just be repositioning a BJDs eyes?

    I’m going to AN yep. I’d love to see her. 🙂
