She's HEEERRREEEEEEE!

She's heeeeerrrreeeeeee!
She made it safe and sound!

I am so happy! I lover her :D I promise to take more pictures soon & often as I customize her! Off the bat, I know I want to cut her hair. I'm not sure if I want bangs or not yet but this long hair is too much. (It's past her butt). I'm not going to reroot her hair anytime soon, but if/when I do, I'd love to use red hair! I'm happy with her blue and green eye chips, but the pink and orange ones make her look super scary. (The boy shuddered when he saw them LOL!) So I'll ditch those and get her some awesome two-tones or something. (If you didn't know, Blythes have a pull string in the back of their heads and when you pull it, it changes their eye color and the direction they're looking in.) Anyway, I think I want to trim her eyelashes a bit too. They're sooo long and her hair gets caught in them. I want to do gaze correction too so she'll look up a bit more. Right now it's like she's looking too far down. I'm going to sand-matte her face, give her new make up and probably do some lip carving. She is going to stay "white" too (that just sounds so weird, lol) I don't think they make a "black Blythe" but you can buy a white one and give it any shade of "ethnic" skin by spray painting or airbrushing it. That will be a task for my next doll because I'm too scared of messing up right now LOL.(Wouldn't it be cool to have a Blythe in every shade of the human rainbow?? Hmmm, gotta look that up and see if anyone has done it yet!)

But one thing I totally forgot about is that she needs a name, DUH! Her Blythe name is "Pleasant Peasant" so maybe a name that starts with P? I got so carried away with finding her and waiting for her to get here that I didn't even think about it LOL! This is going to be soooo hard. It can't just be any old name, you know? We'll see! Feel free to throw names out there ;)

Well I'm off to research, research, and research even more so I can start working on my girl! Toodles ;)
