Beadbloggers and photos by Jean of a Blythe custom, Vesper

Vesper is a gift in every way. She first appeared on my doorstep in December, however she is a September girl, customized by wonderful Amy Artemenko who is known as Zaloa27 on Flickr, where all of us Blythe freaks initially met. It was amazing to me to find so many people all over the world who shared the same hobby: collecting, dressing, and photographing Blythe dolls. 
The originator of this ongoing love is Gina Garan from New York. One of her books, This is Blythe, is on Wikipedia. Both of her books (the other one is called Blythe Style) are available on Amazon. She has published a collection of post cards, too!
In this set of photos Vesper is wearing Moshi girl accoutrements from Pomme- Pomme on Etsy which I got a few years ago.
