Blythe Con Europe 2017.....Part Two.....Photo heavy!

As promised (although a day late), here are some of my photos from Blythe Con Europe, which took place last Saturday, here in Malaga.  I have to admit that I'm not completely sure of who customised a lot of the Blythes in my photos so unless I do know, or it's pretty obvious who owns the stand, I will not put much narrative into this post.  I hope you enjoy seeing the photos, but I warn you, there are a LOT of them!!!!

Sam, my tiny Elfdoll Hana Angel on the Jerry Berry resin body, came with us....


As did Hershey, my Simply Chocolate Blythe (customised by me).....she obviously couldn't stand the pace though!!!!


As we went into the venue, there was a large board which was being spray painted by a local graffiti artist.....here it is in the first stage.....the end result is at the bottom of this post:



There was a beautiful model on display which was made by the very talented Nanuka from Bilbao here in Spain, flickr photos of her work can be found here: Nanukafactory




 Brian, obviously trying very hard to contain his excitement ;)


And now for the photos of the stalls


Below two cute custom Blythes on the I Have Wings stand....


The middle girl below is wearing a beautifully intricate mask made with beading and ostrich feathers....


I cannot remember who this little one is, except that she has a Pure Neemo body in size small.  She has a very cute custom face.....


The lovely girl below with beautiful reroot, was on the Pomme Pomme stand....


 Jolly Roger Dolls stand....all looking very cosy in their hats....


I loved these 'helmets' with their ears and flowers but they were 85 euros each...beautifully made though with fine tiny stitches....


Note the sweet little bears on this stand, I think they were made from soft mohair...


I particularly loved this middle girl with her quirky mouth and sticky up pony tail!  And her little Minion friend....


The below stand is Papa Toronjo, another Spanish artist.  He was telling me that his dad carves the Blythe faces and he paints them and then dresses them.....their stand won the prize for Best Stand with it#s nautical theme and big wooden boats!  




This funny little fellow was on the Banochita (Blanca Diaz) stand, he's a Midi Blythe head on a taller jointed body, although I'm not completely sure what type of body.  His face has been carved with an open mouth and teeth!!  He looks full of mischief!


Cute Blythes in lovely hats by La Gata Tricotadora....I love those yarn flowers too!


A Blythe sized 'house' setting on another stall!! 


My lovely friend Monica from Granada, who sells really nice knits as Feltland...


This beautifully customised sad faced Blythe and her three eyed companion!


Another three eyed 'alien' riding his rocking horse....


Some gorgeous metal props on this stand, by Tebuki Customize....


Amazing customs on this stand....note the tiny little Blythe in the bottom left hand corner!


Harry Potter themed display below, how cute is this!!


The stand below is showing The Little Mischiefs (Dolly Treasures).  This is owned by a lady called Eileen Lam who lives in the UK and takes the most amazing Blythe photos and captions her photos with rhymes. She then has them made into books which she sells.  Typically I didn't know any of this until after the event of course, or I'm sure I'd have been tempted to buy one of her books!   Some of her work can be seen here



Here are the raffle tables.  There were an incredible amount of prizes including quite a few customised Blythe dolls!  To give you an idea, the raffle started at 5pm and the final prize number was called at 7.55pm!!! 





Another friend, and the organiser of the event, Malagueña, Olga Ramirez, also known as Vainilladolly, had a stand with her gorgeous custom Blythes for adoption....I just love her style so much!


Olga's little Secretdoll Ming obviously not wanting to be left out of the action!


The stall next to Olga's was selling these cute little Sonny Angels....I was tempted but I really don't want to start collecting something else!!! 


The next photos are from Zozo of Zolala who I've known forever but had never met before.  Zozo is from the Netherlands and makes very detailed outfits and hats for Blythe.  I knew Zozo from her days making incredible outfits for BJDs, and still use some of the patterns she produced many years ago.  It was lovely to finally meet her after all this time!!  Her stand was my favourite for all it's little details....




Here's Zozo below with my Blythe.  What a lovely lady, we chatted for probably about an hour.  I hope that we meet again one day! 

My Hershey on the left, looking slightly puzzled, is joined by her new friend Trufa, another Simply Chocolate, owned by Kittenlash from the UK....



Incredible custom Blythes by Ma Poupee Cherie....


I loved these soft fuzzy hats and the gorgeous tan girl in the middle modelling one!  Apologies though, I cannot remember the maker of them!


Another sweet bunch of customs....I wonder what's been said that has shocked the little girl on the right?!


Three customs with teeth....I think I might have to try doing a toothy custom one of these days!!!


I loved these trendy girls in their snazzy sunglasses.....I was sorely tempted but at 55 euros a pair.......


The astronaut Blythe carrier on the left is a brilliant idea!


More great customs and clothing for them!


This little girl was one of my favourite customs that was for sale.  I think she has the cutest face.....and SOLD, but no, not to me!  


Another couple of cuties that went home with new mums or dads from the event....I really like the hair on the girl on the left, a great reroot....


Bimba Bambolina had some gorgeous room settings and props for sale, these are just a couple of samples of her work....


The little girl below looks like she's saying "No, I'm quite comfortable staying here, thank you!"


The cutest little duck on a swing on Melinda Pato-Duck's stand....


Three girls walking through the scary woods on this stand below...


A close up of the custom I showed up above....isn't she a sweetie!


This little school boy is obviously having a lot of dental work done at the moment.....


What a studious little one this is....waiting to be adopted for 1900 euros....



As is this little curly head, for the same price....


And this naughty girl with pink hair standing on her desk!


These delightful girls and pretty flowered helmets are on the stand of Moshi Moshi.....


As are these sweet bears which I showed above....


I wonder why these girls look a bit displeased?  Maybe they don't want to part with their beautiful flowered helmets!


Loved this little fellow with the sailor suit and top hat!  And his tiny red doggy friend...


Another sweet custom Blythe with her hobby horse, on the stand belonging to I Have Wings...


And a better close up of two I showed above...


A really bright colourful stand, I'm not sure but think this stand was owned by 'Creative and Regaliz Couture'...  


A very sweet mauve haired custom on the same stand....


I don't know who this shy little custom is by but love her nightgown and her reroot....


And another great custom on the same stand....love her mushroom teeshirt and little tambourine!


My very lovely friend Barb, Little Miss No Name, showing her M for Monkey doll on the left and her friend's girl on the right.  These little dolls are all made of cloth with a posable armature inside, their faces are handpainted....


I've known Barb for many years but we've never met before as she lives in Madrid....it was wonderful to finally meet her, she's as lovely face to face as she is on line! 


Another stand with a nautical theme.  I loved the little fabric fox and his sweet mice companions....



There were loads more stands that I just never got around to photographing, and masses of great stuff to buy.....it was a super event!

Finally here is the completed 'graffiti' painting of Blythe....and lastly me showing that sometimes yes, I do get in front of the camera, if somewhat reluctantly!!!!



Oooh you can just about see my Blythe tee shirt that Brian made for me, showing Hershey :)  and my bulging bag of goodies!!!!


Well if you're still awake, then I hope you enjoyed seeing all my photos from Blythe Con Europe here in Malaga.  Thank you very much for stopping by to share my fun day out!
