Finally got around organizing photos from the opening party ^^; Photos and information from official site of the private party can be found here.  Once again warm congratulations to the Winners of the 2009 Blythe beauty contest :)

This is my 2nd time taking part in the contest, but first time in a team with 2 very talented ladies, Yuki, and Mai.

Before I continue posting the rest of the images, I would like to mention that these photos are taken with kind permission from CWC, the organisers of the Annual event.

1) The event location OMOTE SANDO HILLS, there’s a HUGE Jimmy Choo store in it ^^; Was in a hurry so didn’t take a photo ^^;

2) Other than online voting, you could physically go to the exhibition, check out all the contest dolls and do a written vote.

3) One of the activities of the private event is Auctioning off some of the limited Blythes available only thru Lottery either online or in Japan. Proceeds are donated to a chosen Charity organisation – a Thai orphanage this year.

4) I love those huge banners decorating the walls so much! And as you can see there’s many people taking part in the party ^o^

5) I’ll start by posting photos of the contestants, this is the Winner of this year, I am very glad we get to see her in person as even with a great camera (no offence to my husband who had the press pass at the time :P) photos just doesn’t do many of the dolls justice! And by the way she won both Miss popularity and Junko’s Select! :D

    so small and cute but few of them give me a creep ==

  2. FatB says:

    Very fine little details. I can imagine the intense planning to get it just right. I like the eyepatch with little skull.

  3. Tony Rayo says:

    I don’t know who wouldn’t be interested in these dolls, if not for the detailed workmanship shown in each one. Let’s see… I have 2 kidneys atm and I really only need one, so if I sell one of those off maybe I can buy a new compressor for my airbrush (dunno what happened but the PSIs went too high and blew out every piece of hardware) and maybe one or two Dynamite figures… if I get a good buyer maybe I could even afford a blythe doll of my very own (I’ll probably have to thrown in the liver as a bonus).

    *chii*! Great work as always Chun.

      yikes about the airbrush compressor O_O those suckers are expensive =_=;; I wish dynamite dollfie dreams are not so expensive o_o the secondary market prices are just so exorbitant it’s ridiculous! and thankq :)

  4. rockleelotus says:

    normally i would not be interested in blythe dolls, but wow! some of these are just stunning o.O prolly the first time i seen a blythe doll and thought “cute” lol and the clothes are so detailed and tiny ^^

  5. Syaoran says:

    I still read the article and looked even though I know I’ll have nightmares later! XD It’s the eyes that do it ;;
    #30 & #27 really give me the heebee-jeebees o_o;

    Nice pictures though! Some of the clothing was just amazing(#34, 25, 21) ^^

    I actually am not scared of #21! It’s kinda cute. ^^

    • chun says:

      Thanks for viewing blythe with an open mind :P They’re not for everyone, I think they’re more like “acquired taste” And YES those clothing are amazing, imagine turning the tiny sleeves which can barely fit pinky fingers, right side out when constructing them… ^^;;;;
