I hope you're having a blast at BlytheCon UK today!!! I really wish I could have been there with you, awing at customs and Kenners, taking a ton of pictures, and spending way too much money on little clothes.
In honor of BCUK, The Guardian did an article on us!
Original Blythe dolls sell for thousands and their adult collectors love to dress them up and photograph them. Ahead of BlytheCon UK on Saturday, Huma Qureshi finds out why
It's an interesting article. I shared it on Facebook and the general consesus of my friends is that they're scary. Odd, I fell in love with them at first sight! Maybe viewing them in real life is a different experience.
Speaking of viewing in real life, we have two more releases for 2012! Takara is working their butts off!
We all knew about Ayanami Rei Meets Blythe but now we have her illustration:
