Kimberly, my blythe rocker doll, was my first customizing experience. And I have to admit that I was the first one surprised with the result.
When I finally dared to customize my first blythe doll I had the logical fears and doubts of any novice. What if it goes wrong? I love crafts, but I had never done anything like this before. I didn’t want to risk throwing money away, so I decided to buy only the faceplate. That’s how I got down to work.
Once I got over my fear and doubts, I finally finished my first carving, and I was so excited! It took me almost two weeks, yes, two weeks! I couldn’t stop looking at my blythe rocker doll. I was very pleased with the result of my first carving, and that’s what drove me to keep going.
First I bought the body (I chose a pure neemo S) and then her scalp. Now that was an adventure! When she got home I discovered that her hair had a very afro curl, so I had to use ‘my hairdressing skills’ to first straighten it a bit and then make looser curls. You can see part of the process here
BLYTHE REDHEAD WITH FRECKLES
But what I love most about Kimberly’s customization is her makeup. Being a redhead, I wanted her to have lots of freckles! The truth is that I had no idea how to do them, but I found help surfing the Internet and in the end I think I managed to get them more or less right, as you can see in the pictures.
Kimberly is a very funny redhead and rocker blythe. She is one of my most special blythes dolls, as you can imagine, and I love her personality. That’s why she is part of my collection.
