BUYING A DOLL: THE FIRST STEP
If you have read my story you will know that blythe, along with everything that surrounds this exciting world, illuminated my path when I was in a complicated moment of my life. I needed a radical change of direction and they have become my compass.
I already had the tools and I knew that buying a blythe for customizing was the first step to start, but I knew that the price of the original ones was quite high, about 200 euros. That, I admit, blocked me.
That’s when I discovered something that made me lose my fear. I’m sure you’re going to love it: you don’t have to spend a lot of money on your first blythe for customizing.
There are copies of the originals that are perfect for your first experiences in customization. They are known as fakes, and you can find them for a price of about 60 euros or even less if they have any offer.
You can dare without fear of ‘spoiling’ a genuine blythe, there will be time to buy one when you feel more confident!
There is even the option of buying just the face. This way you can practice for very little money and, when you are convinced with the result, you can buy the body and everything else to complete your doll.
So, if you are going to start this way and you are not sure if you are going to be good at it or you just want to try, what I recommend when buying a blythe for customizing is to choose a fake. Why? Because in the first customizations you will notice the lack of
practice: your first job will not be the same as your tenth, for example. And because, what’s the need to spend a lot of money on something that you don’t even know how it’s going to turn out? I wouldn’t dare.
The time will come to buy an original blythe for customizing. My advice is to be patient. First, get hands on experience and build your confidence in the handling of your tools. Everything will come…
Shall we start?
