BEADBLOGGERS Round up and a photo by Jean Baldridge Yates of a custom Blythe doll
RoXXanne is a Blythe completely customized by my dear friend, the talented artist Moon Rouge.
She is one of the rare customizers who doesn't just do over a doll. Rather, she looks at the doll first and lets the year the doll was made and the style of the Blythe mold speak to her sensibilities before she adds her own changes. This makes each doll she customized that much more beautiful. Thank you Moon Rouge for all your great work!--photo by jean baldridge yates
