Hello, Blythe World!

Cindy Sowers, Jean Yates and I are very happy to announce the official start of the book project: For the Love of Blythe. The subject of our book is 7 unique custom Blythe dolls created by 7 teams of 7 artists through a collaborative work. We want to show the world that the Blythe community abounds with many talented customizers, artists, costume designers and photographers from locations all over the globe. Each member will add their talent and expertise and the whole “doll making” process will be explained and detailed through pictures. The final photographs of each doll will be taken by well-known photographers within the Blythe community and Cindy, aka Princess Di-O-Rama, will take the group shots.

The basis for the project is to showcase the talent within the Blythe community, coming together for one big project to make friends, have fun, and do something outside of ourselves to help others in some way. We think the Blythe community as a whole has a big heart. There are lots of really talented, interesting and generous people, who all love Blythe. We think that Blythe is more than just a doll or a child’s toy. She has a life of her own which, remarkably, seems to bring people together from all walks of life, who want to have fun, see beauty in the world and want to share it. We would like to bring that notion to the forefront and give back in some small way. Each of the 7 dolls will be auctioned to charity at the end of the project.

It’s going to be a busy year for us all. We invite you to follow along with us as we post our progress here. Please follow us and tell your friends. May 2012 be a tremendous year for everyone in the fabulous Blythe community!

  1. I was trying to figure out how to leave comments! I think I have it now 🙂 Yay, Yay! Thank you so much for this beautiful blog post, Fanny. The banner header is the bomb! It’s going to be such a fun year! – Cindy

  2. It’s a great project that is very excited however I think it’s sad the european teams are so not representative of the Blythe Community. I mean Spain has a huge blythe fans community (on of the biggest in Europe with UK) with so many talents… and there is only one person from Spain in the 2 european teams ???
