Blythecon: Real Friends and Real Plastic Friends Meet

The girlz left for Blythecon like this, and had to make quite a bit more room on the way home! I was lucky enough to win not one, but two Blythe dolls plus a Petite Blythe and two outfits: Atelier Blythe and MinkiDynamite. If that weren't shocking enough, my tickets for the two dolls were drawn one right after the other! I was weirdly lucky!
The Portland Roller Girl Ruby Blythe was created by Lynne Rutherford from Texas, a.k.a. Happibug. She has an incredible face-up, chips, pull rings, outfit, hat and tattoo. On top of that, I won a NRFB Punkaholic People.Both of these girls have brunette bobs. Then I came home to Yumeko in the mail from Scotland, a custom by RuiRui/Neroli, and also a brunette bob. And Bunny Velvet with her wig is a, say it with me, brunette bob.
It is only by coincidence that my earliest Blythe friend, Linda J and her PE Ebony, Molli, have brunette bobs! Heck, I didn't even know what Linda looked like until Blythecon! As you can see above, she looks a lot like her MiniMe, Molly. Linda also has a darling real-life mini me now.
That's Molli's sister Zelda, a Star Dancer custom by Kyle, hanging out with my Star D Lilly. Molli and Zelda sent Lilly and me our first-ever Blythe gifts and Blythe swaps about four years ago-- back when I still had SO much to learn. I remember asking Linda to explain Re-ment to me! Seems so funny now.

More Blythecon Pics!

I think I'll be able to actually write about it after I post more pics. However, that is moi in the white jean jacket in the top photo (I hate getting my picture taken!). I'm sitting with in-person and some first-time in-person friends to my right--Lindsay (Ellewoods) my roommate for BC; Angela (Gemini Angel's Art & Dolls); Ruth (EuroTrash), Blythe Banner (?), and Phillaine. At the foreward table from left: Stacy (Tunibug); Sylvia (SylvieCola Dolls); Maggie (Momoko_girl_1/Blythe_Stole_My_Heart). Maggie has got to shorten that name!
Below that is Pommepomme's vendor table with Shershe (Sherry of Indiana) to the left. In the 3rd photo Keelie of Marmalade Forest in OR sells her "Hello My Name Is" nametags on the left and Rag Bag Designs (Sglahe and her mom) are on the left. I think I bought 5 dresses from them!
Below them, from left are GBaby (Gina), MinkiDynamite and Dolly Rockers vending clothes and eyechips. Last photo is just one of the many tables of participants' dolls- these dressed in vintage Skipper. You can see the outstanding centerpieces, too.
