Taking photo´s of Kobi wearing the new dresses is also not so simple as I thought would be. We don´t have much light anymore and outside is rainy and wet and muddy. I have found that at noon the most lighted room in the house is the bathroom. Kobi is standing agains the bathroom door. But once the light is good she is a natural!
And of course for the photo´s I hade to get her shoes. Love this adorable tiny sport shoes
I have uploaded some of the dresses in my Etsy shop. The first dress is already sold and shipped!

Denzel is almost 6 years old and already asked why does the airplain have eyes and mouth
He is crazy about airplains and knows all about them.. you can imagine what a look he gave me when I accidently said it was a helicopter...

In the first photo she wears a half amigurumi airplain I was making for Shaun
In the second photo Kobi and Amika are sitting on a styrofoam packagin material that I put on 4 empty thread spools. I am planing on making it a designers sofa for the dolls.
Amika has a lovely red hair but she will get a new hair that I have already ordered MOHAIR Strawberry Blonde curls:

- sand matting
- sleep eye
- replacing one pair eye chips ( I bought a pair in etsy)
- replacing her eye lashes
- nose and lips carving
- new pastels make-up including Freckles
She is beautiful but I am not 100% happy about it. I think I will change it soon. when I will start customizing my new doll. The new doll is going to get also a new hair. I would like a doll with curly red hair. Orders from the far east take so long to arrive that I need to make a big order by coolCat: eye chips, eye lashes and scalp. In the meanwhile I sew and crochet clothes and hair accessories.

A couple of months ago I saw a photo of one again on a FB album of a friend and asked her what was the name of this doll that I remembered seeing years ago lots of photo's mostly in flickr.
She answered and added me to the Blythe group and the rest is history but I didn't have time to post in my blog therefor I must start at the beginning.
I always loved dolls of all kinds. I played with dolls long after all my youngers nieces found that dolls are for little girls. In the past weeks I am looking in flickrs account and blogs of blythe fans. I loved the idea of customizing the doll and of course clothes making.
A couple of weeks later I had my first Blythe a Bohemian Piece. Denzel, my son, gave her the name Kobi.
She is a nature beauty but Kobi doesn't look like this anymore. In the next post I will show what I learned about customizing blythe dolls and post photo's of Kobi's metamorphosis.
