QOTW: Did you fall short of winning the lottery?

The Blythe Adores Anna (Anna Sui collaboration) Blythe lottery has come and gone, and there are some disappointed people in the community! Not surprisingly, there was only 500 dolls in the international lottery via Junie Moon for the otherwise region-exclusive collaboration doll. This limited edition beauty is one of the more unique dolls to be put out by Blythe in a while, what with the hair-make up-eye chip combination, as well as the style of the Blythe stock (and we all have Anna Sui to thank for that).


But what happens if you’re one of unlucky ones that didn’t win the lottery? If you’re still hoping to get your hands on the limited edition beauty, here are some of your options:

  • Find someone who did win the lottery draw but decided not to buy her. Partner up and have them buy the doll, and then sell the doll to you.
  • Wait until the doll ships – there are usually some people who get their hands on the doll and then their financial situation changes or they decide to not keep her.
  • Go to eBay and pay extraordinarily absurd secondhand prices to secure the doll.
  • Or, perhaps, realize that everything happens for a reason and decide that your money is better spent elsewhere.

I personally had entered the lottery on a lark. I figured if I decided to not buy her, I could always resell her or find someone else who was really wanting her. I do love the look of her in photos though, so I kinda wish that I was a lottery ‘winner’ (even if I am trying to save up for BlytheCon later this year).

Did you fall short of winning the lottery for the new Blythe Adores Anna doll?

    I didn’t win the lottery but luckily someone in my city won her and is selling her to me!

    I did win!
    This beauty will be my very first Blythe, I’m very excited although a bit nervous as she’s so expensive…

    She would have been my first non-factory (non-fake) Blythe. I knew it was a long shot, but I’m still super disjointed that I didn’t win. 🙁 I don’t know anyone who has and I seriously considered Ebay, but decided I just can’t justify spending that much money. Other authentic Blythe dolls haven’t caught my fancy like she did. So bummed!

      …meant to say “disappointed.” 🙂

        Several of my friends have found people selling theirs at the Junie Moon price (which is awesome), so keep checking the FB groups. There are some great people in the dolly world that still hold onto the spirit of the hobby. Good luck!
