After practicing customising a bit, I decided to buy a cheaper Blythe to play with. I still can’t justify messing up a really pretty doll yet. Lorshek Molseh was on sale (her name is an anagram of the beloved Sherlock Holmes) on CCT, and I picked her up thinking her little moustache was comical and her outfit was a bit knaff but cute all the same.
I was browsing Yahoo Japan one day when a broken Pullip Varele showed up for around AUD$20. I couldn’t resist. I snapped her up, and she arrived bald, with half an eyebrow sanded off. I mean, in my mind I do designer artistic things for a living, so how hard can doll customisation be?
I got to work on my Yeolume Blackberry over the weekend. I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of her recently. Her wig, as mentioned before is absolutely amazing, but her faceup was crooked, and I really wanted to give her a new look. So, I embarked again on a customising adventure.
Yeolume is a weird little dolly in the Pullip family. She appeared for two releases (Podo and Blackberry) before her releases dried up faster than the Sahara. I’d be the first to admit that she wasn’t my favourite dolly, but after seeing some truly gorgeous versions of her… I decided she may have potential as a customisation.
