Gothic Lolita Blythe

Last weekend Ray and I were out for a walk and decided to visit one of my favourite shops/ galleries called Magic Pony. I love this place! It always has great art shows but the books and stuff cannot be found elsewhere in Toronto. Since we're supposed to be on a budget, we were "just looking" There were so many great books. I really wanted this one:
Then I saw the Blythe dolls. Oh, they were wonderful. But at $120-$140, I really couldn't justify buying myself a doll. Even a super cool Blythe doll...... There were lots of books about Blythe too (and lots about other super cool stuff -- go see the website)
So I consoled myself with this:Isn't she cute? She came in a little box, and in Japan they come from a vending machine -- so you don't know which one you're going to get. I was lucky. I got the one I wanted. I got to indulge my gothic lolita self AND my Blythe fetish. Well, a little bit anyway....

But I got these pins too, so I can wear them at school. And then the kids will think that I'm slightly cool. Well, the boys already think that I'm cool because I know all the words to Green Day songs, and I know who Billy Talent is (Canadian alternative band). The girls think I'm cool because I know the words to all of the songs from The Sound Of Music. Only in Kindergarten can these two musical genres be cool at the same time......Ray got a little figure too -- I can't remember what it was.... but the dog is surely going to eat it soon.....

Yeah, and Heather got me started on Blythe too...and now I have six. So if you want to resist, you should stay away from her, cuz she's trouble I tell ya!

The wee Blythe you got is just darling. I haven't seen them anywhere before.
