Yasmin's In Progress









Here are some progression shots of a Custom Commission Beautiful Brown Blythe called Yasmin that I am working on.  She is my first Blythe with teeth and with micro metal braces on top of that! The client asked for it and I tried my best to give her what she desired, it was definitely a challenge but I love the way she turned out. 
She is a custom Simply Chocolate with a Pure Neemo M Flection Body.  She has a sewn in curly human hair weft and 2 sets of hand painted eye chips by Almond Doll. Her new Jewelry Grade pull charms fit her proper. Up next a few highlights added to her curly human wefted hair and then she will be ready to travel home.

Here Listing is now up on Etsy Here
Getting into this hobby of Blythe Customizing by chance and having it bring me such wonderful opportunity is an understatement. Coming off of the high of being featured in the sold out, Metamorphosis Art of Blythe Book published by CWC last year; I was asked by Junko Wong, to be a featured artist in a traveling exhibition which started at the Daikanyama Junie Moon in-store Gallery in Japan to celebrate their 10th Anniversary.
The First Exhibition was at Junie Moon Gallery in Tokyo, Japan, April 22nd - May 11th, 2014. 
The Second Exhibition was at Lele Junie Moon Gallery in Shibuya, Japan, July 26th - July 13th 2014. 

With a theme of Romantic Heroine, each Custom Blythe Art Doll submitted depicted heroines from movies and novels. I created a very special custom Blythe Art Doll reflecting one of my personal favorite stories and happen to feature wonderful characters that reflect the Romantic Heroine Theme. Now back from Japan, she is ready to travel and see the world. It is my hope that she will bring you joy.

Introducing my interpretation of Princess Tiger Lily, from the beloved and cherished book, Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. She is a beautiful stoic girl who is immensely loyal, brave and strong. 
She features carving indicative of Native American features, on an expressive Pure Neemo Flection S Body. 
She wears a hand sewn leather suede wardrobe with a fringed belted smock dress, shawl headband, moccasin boots, turquoise chocker and two headdresses, one with a turquoise suede headband with a printed Eagle feather and the other is her Princess Crown Headdress topped with multi colored feathers on a suede headband. 
She has an exclusive rare, soft jet black mohair wig by Yatabazah Luxury Wigs which can be curled or flat ironed. 
She features Jewelry Grade Pulls charms in Turquoise and Silver and the other an authentic hand carved Stone Arrowhead with wooden beads on waxed twine. 
She has four sets of hand painted eye chips in Black Castle, Brown Boots, Pixie Green and Mermaid Lagoon Blue. 
She proudly stands atop a handcrafted Indian tribal drum on a diorama featuring 2 birch twig wigwams and 1 birch and canvas wigwam with a fur skin floor covering, a Dream Catcher and feather beads on a Cedar plank with bark trim.

She will also travel with an Adoption Booklet signed and dated.

*Due to her custom paint work, she is very delicate and should always be handled with great care as not to damage her airbrushed finish.

Special Re-Sale Adoption Opportunity





Angelique is a special little one custom Commissioned for a client over a year ago who sadly has to let her go. I have never assisted a re-listing of my customs before but the client reached out to me because she wants her to have a loving home that will show her attention. 

Angelique was one of my customs featured in the Book Metamorphosis Art of Blythe last year. She will be visiting my studio soon for a little refresher which means more photos of this cutie coming soon.

If you have room or have wanted to add some color to your collection please let me know so I can put you in touch with her current owner. Contact me via my Facebook Page
