I went to a Blythe fan club meeting today in san Francisco. You can find them on the meet up site if you want to come. I don't have any blythe dolls, but I saw at least three I wanted, but some of those had customized options, that would make them even more expensive. They are good quality solid dolls. I am more addicted to buying misfit clones on ebay, because I can get a fix for only a few dollars. When the dolls cost more than 100 dollars, that means I can only have one of two. The size of blythe's head would create a storage problem. I already have a storage problem as it is. In summary I would collect them if I could get them for five dollars in spite of the storage problem any new dolls would create. I liked the colored hairs ones in particular Mango (orange hair) 100 dollars on ebay and Amaryllis (green hair) 300 on ebay. There is a new white haired called Vanilla 100 dollars that pairs with a brown hair called Chocolate. Vanilla has nice looking skin, but not a nice as the Amaryllis I saw which had a translucent costume face plate, which would make her even more expensive, then add the handmade custom. I have not seen such lovely skin color before other then my Suki Suki Sailor Moon dolls. The BJD that are made of resin have a dead white skin color. I think the plastic of Blythe is much more attractive, but these dolls are all out of my price range.
