The Love of Blythe

So I don't know when it actually happened, but I've become obsessed with big-headed dolls. I don't know why, honestly, I just like the look of them. They are so odd looking, but so fun to play with. It's almost like their heads are big enough for hats with details and their bodies are small enough to pull of cute. So you mix the two together and you have the perfect odd and funny combination.

One of my favorite bobble-headed dolls has to be Blythe. A lot of people say that Blythe is freaky with her big changing eyes, but I think that adds to the fun of her. I've never had an uncomfortable feeling with dolls really, except that clown doll from Poltergeist. That sucker was freaky!!! It didn't help that my mom told me he'd come out from under my bed and get me. Now to be fair, I had found where my mattress on my bed had come apart and I started ripping on it for some reason, and no matter how many times my mom told me not to do it I kept doing it. So once she learned I was afraid of that clown...well let's just say I stopped pulling on mattress. LOL! And if you don't believe me that that thing was evil, take a look below.

See, a seemingly normal doll right?

WRONG!!! That sucker is EVIL I tell you!!! EVIL!!! * takes deep breath * Ok, sorry, I am ok now. * shivers * Moving on.

Blythe has such a sweet face with a the perfect body for making small and cute clothes for. And lucky for me, I'm not the only one who feels this way. There are tons of Blythepatterns out there to have fun with, and I can't wait to continue on my journey of sewing for Blythe so I can try out these differentpatterns. Blythe fashions are such a big pull for me. They can be virtually anything, even though she has a “mature” body. Some dolls look odd dressed cute because of their mature body, but Blythe can pull off anything from little girl to mature female, and even being male. I think it's because of the head that she can do this. Because of the head she can easily pull off large patterns on her clothes as well. It's very interesting how she can do it. Take a look at the variety of ways Blythe can be dressed to represent different personalities.

And this is just regular size Blythe dolls, Middies and Petites have their own uniqueness that is super cute as well.

I'd like to one day have one of each size of Blythe. They are just super cute, and honestly if I had to choose only one doll to own it would be Blythe, and it may one day turn to me only owning Blythe dolls, only time will tell. I'd like to get more into Blythe and learn how to customize her and make her my own. I currently only own two dolls, one being a super cute clone while the other is an Ashton-Drake Blythe. I will be eventually growing my collection as these two have sealed the deal for me that I love Blythe. I can't wait to have several girls, and I'd like to make a boy one day with a vintage Skipper body I have. For now I sew for the two girls I do have, and will sew for the vintage Skipper body as some people have made boy dolls this way and I may try seeing if there is a market for boy clothes for Blythe dolls. I'll have to update you on that when I find out.

And that's about it for this post. I just wanted to pause and talk a bit about this wonderful gal.If you'd like to learn more about Blythe I'd suggest stopping by forums such as “This Is Blythe”, “Plastic Paradise”,and “Blythe Kingdom” to get started. Like I said, I know a lot of people don't like her big head, but I am a fan of big-headed dolls. There is just something about them that is so interesting. I'll be sure to start sharing some pictures of my two girls real soon. Until then, I am off. Talk to you lovelies later. Bye for now.
