This is Gabrielle, Gabby for short. My husband gave her the fullname, I the nickname. She was an original Simply Vanilla Neo Takara RBL.

So what’s so special about Gabrielle? Because she’s my first Costumized Blythe so she’s a One of a kind Blythe or Blythe OOAK as they’re called once head and whole face was given a new touch.

All works done to her wasn’t for the ‘ fainted heart ‘ because it’s a pretty expensive doll (reason why most collectors are adults) . Faceplates, eyes, body, etc are being sold on doll specialty stores, especially on eBay…..so of course you can buy them. But the thought of having different parts coming from different sources..hmm, well…for me it is still okay!

I have several Takara RBL that I’ll be giving a full face-up and new hair (mostly mohair, yes!) so I might put up a few for adoption too. I know that I’, not going to stop doing a face-up now that I am enjoying doing it (^0^)

Yesterday afternoon, just after the sun got cooler, I brought my 3 Blythe dolls out to the garden and had fun photographing my girls. The only non-fun part of it was whenever I tried to make them stand, sit, or hold something! :P Because they are not meant to stand on their own – heads are too big and heavy, of course, I was making them sit on bikes and motorcycle a tad too small for them too and since they do not have moveable joints on their fingers, they hardly can hold anything.

But there is Ginger, holding a banana (snacking on it) with a bottle of coke cola on the side and sitting on her bike! Have we succeeded or not?
