Blythe…April 28, 2010
Blythe dolls were originally made in America in the 1970’s. People thought they were scarey looking so nobody bought them.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.
