well the listing says I HAVE OTHER DISHES so maybe check the same seller
Definitely a precursor to Living Dead Dolls, one of which I have, she used to hang from my rear-view mirror, She came with a keyring attachment which was a snap-link on the end of a piece of string, on the other end of which was a noose…
She’s dressed in a very Victorian nightdress with lace trimming.
About as Goth as you can get. Can’t remember where I put her when I got my new car, but she’s around somewhere.
I do occasionally hear little, inexplicable noises in the early hours though…
I just did an image search for the original (1972) Blythe doll, and I’m not sure I would call them depressing. The hair and the clothes are giving me a real ‘Catherine Deneuve partying with Yves Saint Laurent’ vibe.
ETA: of course everyone has their own definition of depressing.
21 years ahead of its time as an Aliens action figure of Newt.
Oh I didn’t mean to suggest the Bythe Dolls were depressing. I guess by saying “more” depressing I was suggesting that they were in some way.
Blythe could be a Valley of the Dolls type fashion burnout, the industry does chew up and spit our many hopeful young ladies. That’s kind of depressing. (And I should have read your comment more carefully!)
Did anyone ask Siouxie Sioux what she did when she got this doll at Christmas?
Brilliant and ahead of its time. Should have had a line of clothes to buy from burlap to velvet, and friends in a similar situation. And random accessories might come with a literal key to happiness that allows the tear to be removed. e.g.: Will this pink Mustang have the key to happiness? /$
