My First Blythe Custom!!!

So, I got into Blythe in the first place because of all of the beautiful custom work I had seen, so I dove in right away! It did take me a lot longer than I thought it would, but that was mostly because of the distractions inherent in being easily distracted by my other thousand hobbies.
Before & After:
My First Custom!  Before & After
She began as an ADG Perfect Parfait, already customized... So I suppose my first custom was also my first rescue! That squiggly thing on the side of her face is sharpie or paint pen or something, and the eyelids were painted without opening up the head, so paint was all over the edges of the sockets :( (The before pics were from the seller, not me...)

Much work was done!
Work done: Sandmatted, Pastel Makeup, Painted Eyelids, New Lashes, Sleep Eyes, Gaze Lift, Carved Lips, Eyes, Reshaped Nose, Mohair Reroot, Neemo Flection Body, and Glass Pulls. You prolly have to be into Blythe to know what any of that means.
Her name is Moth now.

O Hai!

Well, well.

It seems that two of my life long dreams have come true:

1) The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a program where you can spend the night. In the building. I KNOW. I can't even think about this without squealing. *squeal*! See, I told you.

2) Speaking of squealing, I know you have probably already heard, but: tiny piggies. THAT YOU CAN KEEP AS PETS. I have always said that if pot-bellied pigs stayed small, I'd be all over that! Eeeeeep!
