Ehhhh sowee guys!

I totally meant to have the giveaway winners posted today, but I came home from work with a killer headache :( The dogs were extra loud pretty much all day long and it really makes my head hurt. I layed down for a nap that turned into a slumber. I promise I'll announce the winners today after work (4 PM CST) Until then, check out my latest custom blythe. Her name is Spaz! I love her and she's going to be apart of my personal collection *swoon*

customizations:
*sand matted (her previous owner did this and I just touched it up)
*full face-up (new pastel and pencil eye shadow, acylic paint lids, pastel and pencil lips)
*nostril, philtrum, and lip carving
*sleepy eyes
*4 new sets of eye chips
*gaze correction
*new hot pink lashes
*hair styling

I realize that some of you have no idea what a lot of that ^^ means and I plan on doing an explanation post when I have time. I really think knowing what it all means helps appreciate the art form a little bit more :) I'm thinking about doing a Q & A post on Blythe...is that something Cute Stew readers would be interested in? Let me know! Well it's past midnight now so I guess I better go back to sleep so I can get up in 5 hours and go listen to barking dogs again for 8 more long hours o___O

good night sweethearts well it's time to go (oh doe de oh doe)

I love Blythe dolla and wish I could afford one~ Wonderful job on the customizations~ It's a tad too eccentric for my personal tastes, but still artistically done. <3

Jingle said...

She looks great! My question is just where to get them? I seem to usually only find custom ones.

Wow, you're so freaking talented! She looks great. What a lot of work though!
I love her little "I bite" tee and her pink hair. Way too cute!

Jingle -- I get mind from a forum called Plastic Paradise. There is also another one called This is Blythe. Blythe fanatics by and sell their new and used dolls there. You can also try ebay and sometimes even etsy for custom girls. I'd recommend joining a Blythe forum though and learning as much as you can so you don't get ripped off. They are expensive but it depends you can get a quality used doll for under $100 but some people take advantage as sell them for way more than they are worth. It really depends on if the doll. You kind of have to know your stuff. Limited dolls are worth more...different molds can be worth a lot more. Kenner Blythes which are the orignal dolls from the 70s can go for over $1000 :O it just all depends...

Kim -- I am definitely going to do a post about it. Maybe a series on Blythe would be fun :D

thanks everyone!
