La Blythe : Découverte du jour

Bonjour tout le monde, je viens de découvrir un univers formidable, poétique, délicat, parfois à la limite du fantastique et très très branché. Un univers que je sens hautement addictif : La blythe.
Une poupée haute de 28 cm, avec une grosse tête bien ronde, de jolie joues, de très grand yeux innocents (parfois inquiétant après maquillage). Originaire des Etats-Unis, elle a séduit le monde entier depuis sa création (1972), et est grave à la mode au Japon.
On lui crée un style, des vêtements digne des collections haute couture ou hyper branchouille, on la maquille selon le style désiré, on lui teint les yeux, les cheveux, on les frise, on les crêpe. Non sérieusement on l’achète 😉 Ce qui n’empêche que la Blythe est onirique, modèle parfait pour faire des prises de vue exceptionnelles. Elle est à notre image, habillée et stylée comme on l’entend. Bref, j’adore !!
Elle me rappelle mon mannequin préférée de quand j’étais petite : 12 cm de haut et un charisme de star! Ce sera l’objet de mon intro de présentation des Dodus.

Voici quelques exemples de Blythe trouvées sur le net.

« Blythe is a fashion doll, about 28 cm (11 inch) tall, with an oversized head and large eyes that change color with the pull of a string. It was created in 1972 and was initially only sold for one year in the USA by toy company Kenner. In 2000 the photo book This is Blythe was published and in 2001 the Japanese toy company Takara began producing new editions of Blythe dolls. There is a network of hobbyists who customize the doll for resale and create clothing and shoes for Blythe. Enthusiasts share photographs of their work and their dolls on the Internet.
History
Blythe was created in 1972 by designer Allison Katzman at Marvin Glass and Associatesand marketed in the USA by the now-defunct toy company Kenner. Due to a lack of interest, Blythe dolls were only sold for one year in the U.S. (produced in Hong Kong) and also in Australia, during 1972. It would only become popular some 27 years later. Reportedly, she was modeled after drawings by Margaret Keane, similarly to many other dolls of the ’60s and ’70s. Her most distinctive feature were eyes that changed color with the pull of a string attached to the back of her head.
In 1997, New York TV and video producer Gina Garan was given a 1972 Kenner Blythe by a friend and began using it to practice her photographic skills. She began taking her Blythe everywhere with her and took hundreds of photos. In 1999, she was introduced to CWC’s Junko Wong by artist and illustrator, Jeffrey Fulvimari which brought Blythe to the attention of Parco and toy executives. In 2000, Gina published her first book of Blythe photography with Chronicle BooksThis is Blythe. In 2001, Hasbro (the Trademark and License owner) gave Takara of Japan and CWC a license to produce the New Edition of Blythe (Neo Blythe). Blythe was used in a television advertising campaign by Parco, the fashion branch of Seibu Department Stores in Japan and was an instant hit.
