Blythe dolls were originally made in America in the 1970’s. People thought they were scarey looking so nobody bought them. But now Blythe’s have had a big comeback.  A lady named Gina Garan started photographing them and they got popular again. I like them because they are not just your average Barbie doll… some of them are spooky and gothic. They are way cooler than any doll I know.  These 2 are mine and their names are Lilac and Ella.

I got Lilac recently for my birthday.  Some of my friends have got them too. Tonight I made a skirt for Lilac – a full circle skirt. I like that you can get cool and quirky clothes for them.

  1. Dear Nim, Well done. Great story and pictures. You’ll have lots of fun making more clothes for your dolls. They’re gorgeous!

  2. Wow nim, i was impresed with your skirt and your story. The Blythe dolls do seem to have a lot of personality in those big eyes -kind of kooky so I can see why you like them.
