What a strange title! Have you heard of Blythe doll? About a few months ago, I came across a blog where there were photos of stylish dolls with various clothes. It turns out the doll I saw from the blog was very popular. It has a rather big head with a slim body. People who enjoy Blythe doll also produce custom tailored clothes for the doll. For some reason, it felt like the doll resembles the Leica M system. You get obsessed with an object and take pleasure in accessorizing it.
Anyway, I felt a strong urge to take some photos of the doll from the blog I visited. So, I took courage to ask the blog owner to loan two dolls to me for a week. Yeah! The owner kindly shipped two dolls to me.
Make it sit on top of my classic Mini Cooper was challenging. The head was quite heavy, so it fell easily.
For a week, I had really interesting experience with two dolls. I began to develop a sort of attachment. One day, I took one doll with me for a photo shoot. Then I placed the doll in the shot gun seat. Naturally I started talking to “HER”. I didn’t think too much but now come to think of it again, it’s really strange. Talking to a doll as if you talked to an imaginary friend when you were really young.
After a week, I had to say goodbye to them (literally).
If you want to practice portrait photos, maybe Blythe doll might be an interesting subject.
