Halloween Blythe Meet

Last Sunday (the 28th) my friend, Ashley, and I went to Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco to attend the Halloween Blythe Meet. I actually found out about it on Flickr -- I swear, I'm obsessed with that site! Anyway, it was pretty overwhelming to see all these Blythe dolls grouped together. I dressed Tigerlily up as Minnie Mouse (I even made her mouse ears out of pipe cleaner), Ashley's Abigail was supposed to look like a masquerade girl, but Ashley forgot to put the mask she made in her purse. Whoops! And my friend Jean asked me to bring her doll Sylvie . . she was "Lady of the Night". HeHe . . .

I'm not sure how many people came, but there were sOoOoOoO many dolls!!! I think we counted over 80. I even got to see some Kenners (they're the original Blythes made in the 70s) up close. I met a lot of nice people, including Cat who organized the whole meet, and talking to everyone there made me feel not so weird about my new found love for Blythe dolls.

Some people brought little goody-bags for everyone and Ion, a.k.a. Blythe Boy, had special ones for the first 24 people who showed up -- they had a Littlest Pet Shop toy inside along with some candy. I got an owl and I've already gone crazy taking pictures of it in trees at school!

There was also a contest for which dolls had the best costumes:



The winners, L-R: Joey (winner), Ion (2nd place), and Poohie (3rd place).

Here's me showing some of the dolls:



The guy in the video is Henry. He was super nice and he also owns the "Bon Jovi" doll!

Here's some pictures that I took at the meet:
