Danita Blythe!




So you know how I am. I like to do things and then read the instructions... and I can't wait, I like things to happen NOW and waiting is hard... specially when waiting takes so long! When I ordered my Blythe I ordered the same day 3 sets of eye chips to change her eyes to brown (just like me) thinking it will be just receiving the doll and changing the eyes... boy I was wrong!
Once you try it you start wanting to change all!

Luckily I had most of the things needed to customize her. After trying to remove the eyes following this tutorial and just being able to change one and then I decided to remove the shine of her skin with a very soft sanding paper because I had read somewhere that you could do it that way or apply matte spray.. I didn't like the idea of matte spray so I went for the sanding. I couldn't do it properly with her head on so I had to open her. It seemed so easy! I couldn't... so I went and checked another tutorial, following the instructions carefully (which I don't do very often!)

And I did it!! Since she was already opened I thought I should do some lip carving, I don't like the standard lips they come with. The yellowish makeup wasn't entirely of my likeness so I change that too for a dark brown.

I repainted the lips and I even added a beauty mark that I have below my lips, a little bit of shine and blush and closed her head. I tried again with the eye chips and this time I could do it!! (I realized you have to really let the silicon cool before attempting to remove the eyes). After closing her I read that you could get her lazy eyes by letting the spring loose and attaching a cord.. but I was to lazy to open her again. I may do that another day.

So here she is before the transformation... and how she is now. What do you think? Not bad for being my first time, right?

You did a beautiful job. She looks more like you now:) I want one now too! My daughter has other dolls made by the same people and they are all beautiful and their clothes are stunning. I guess we need a Blythe doll now too. It looks like so much fun.
