Introducing Violet!

After reading all about Amy’s beautiful Smith, I decided it was time to resurrect my Blythe and finally name her. I adore her, but she simply sits on a shelf in her factory clothes and make up.

So I decided to brave it and do a bit of custom work on her, as her original make-up as seen below left her a little too bronzed with a frosted pink lipstick reminiscent of Collette (of ‘ring my bell’ fame)

(this is going to be my Christmas card this year...)

I started with a de-shine I was so nervous about it though. After the first few scrubs I regretted it, but the more I did the better she started to look. I used a spongy nail buffer (you know those square 4 step ones?) which worked a treat and didn’t leave sny scratch marks.
Then I decided to spunk her up a little bit with some cutesy freckles and a lick of pink lipstick. I still need to do a bit of work on the lips though. And for the finishing touch I added some false eye lashes and viola!

She looks fresh faced and cute as a button! And, she has a name……Violet.

Here she is with her viewmaster

and here she is with my viewmaster reels.
