The weather outside is frightful… the apocalyptic snow we were promised all last week has finally arrived. Dan’s working from home, I’m half working, a quarter ill, and another quarter using the time to properly introduce the latest member of my Blythe family, the Ayanami Rei x Blythe – White Light collaboration doll.
This gorgeous girl is the Ayanami Rei x Blythe – White Light collaboration doll, and she was a Christmas gift from Dan. I remember the announcements for this doll, and more achingly I remember the sinking feeling I got when I found out she was a lottery doll. I gave up all hope of ever owning her, knowing that her price post-release on eBay and forums would probably be ridiculous (Doronjo x Blythe, I’m looking at you!) Luckily a friend of mine had entered the lottery herself, and so had her mother – bit of an insurance policy, you know how it is. Typically, both came up, so Dan bought the second Rei Ayanami. It was meant to be. :love:
Her plug suit and interface headset are awesome – even if the suit does leave her vulnerable to some rather cringe-worthy camel toe… 😳 My only real gripe is that the shoes don’t fit if she’s wearing the plug suit, because the material’s too thick. Not a major issue, and certainly not enough to make me love her any less.
Here you can see her special two-colour lip paint, and her subtle makeup. Her eyelashes are gorgeous, and her lids are a lovely soft beige.
God’s in his Heaven, all’s right with the world… There’s even a special pull ring charm for this girl. One side for Blythe, the other for NERV. Total, utter, geek-gasm.
I literally love everything about this Blythe. Her hair is gorgeous, her outfit is perfect, and all the special little details make me melt (eyelashes, pullcharm, special makeup…) I feel incredibly lucky to have this girl. Unlike most of my Blythe dolls, Rei will be staying stock for the foreseeable future. To me, this Blythe is Rei Ayanami. :heart:
Ooooh you lucky bugger! I have the Rei Ayanami Pullip but your Blythe is insanely gorgeous… Glad you got her though, will she be accompanying you to the upcoming Blythe meet perchance?
Quite possibly! Though that’s alllllll the way in March, and I’m hoping to have done a bit of custom work by then, so who knows. Elvie desperately needs new lips, and my factory Blythes need new faces! It will be lovely to see you again though! :cheery:
