One of my goals when I began in the Blythe hobby was to eventually have at least one Blythe of each mold type.
It’s just one of the things that I always liked about looking at photos of Blythes – dolls next to one another and me trying to see if I could see the difference between the molds. At this point, I’m pretty good about recognizing the different molds in photos. It takes a lot of time getting them dressed though. At this point, I have 9 and they spend a lot of time in the same clothes (heh). It’s not their fault, of course, it’s just that dressing and figuring out what clothes each doll should wear takes a lot of time. But I love them. A lot. Even if they’re always demanding new shoes and clothes, something that I’m not trying to give into this year.
I have one of every mold except for ADG (which I’m currently not interested in) and BL. I’m currently thinking of a Mondrian or a Parco – but the idea of plunking the amount of money down for a Parco would probably put me into an anxiety fit (yet buying a Kenner was somehow okay?).
I know that some people don’t like the SBL mold, but you have to admit that a lot of the SBLs came with fantastic stock clothes. My only SBL is Velvet Minuet, who was one of the first Blythes that I had seen (online). I have a maximum amount of 10 that I want to maintain, so seeing as I have 9 Blythes right now, that only really means room for one more (a BL – but I have decided to give myself a loophole that Blythes after the tenth one will be okay provided that they are Kenners).
Are there other people who have one of each type of Blythe mold, or are working towards having one of each Blythe mold?
