OOAK Custom Blythe Art Doll for BCUK London 2015 Charity Auction

I hope everybody has had a wonderful summer! I'm sorry I've been mia, I've been working away on upcoming customs dolls, preparing for a huge clean out sale and spending any spare time drawing and painting. 

One of my favorite projects I've been working on is as a customizer for one of the 5 teams creating dolls and outfits for BCUK London’s charity auctions; Eaves and Young Minds.

It’s been wonderful to work with and get to know such a lovely and talented group of people!  I am part of Team #1 and we decided to go with a Rococo theme for our girl.  I can’t wait to see the amazing outfits my teammates, Helen-Pumpkinbelle, Fae- Pomme Pomme, and Mary- MforMonkey are making! Flora of Almond doll created her stunning side glancing eye chips!

Etta’s name is short for Marietta, which was the name used by those to whom Marie Antionette was endeared
