Blythecon.

Oh.  My.  Word.  The Blythe ladies were in on Monday, and their tiny, tiny doll outfits were outrageous.  For the uninitiated Blythe dolls were popular in the mid-70s, and collectors (at least the collectors we know) are serious about crafting custom clothing for their dolls.

When you pull a string on the back of their heads, their eyeballs change color.  Look at that rabid orange glow.  Blythcon will be held Monday, June 20th at Venue Pearl.

    I’ve always been tempted, but I can’t quite do it. They’re so cute, though.

    How funny. As someone who grew up in the 70’s, when I started reading this I thought, “That’s funny, I don’t remember those…” until I got to the part about their eyes changing color and then it all came back! Thanks for the flashback. 🙂

    OMG. The dolls sort of creep me out but the clothes, and the fact that people are creating them, are FABULOUS!
