History

In October 2017 Blythecon Brooklyn was about to take place, and I came to the decision that there was just no way I could logistically make the trip happen. With a heavy heart I sold my ticket. At the time my son was still too young to travel that far easily or affordably, and as a single Mom I had few options.

I'm one of those turn lemons-into-lemonade-types, so I decided to start the first ever online Blythe doll convention. The idea for Blythe vs. Blythe was born from an idea I had the year prior where I thought it would be fun to give two artists the same doll and theme, and see how they customize it differently.

That portion became the "main event", but like other in-person conventions, I wanted to add games, prizes, demos, and community building.

 

And so I did.

Blythe vs. Blythe is now a community, a family really, of supportive Blythe fans who come together to enjoy the hobby in a positive environment.
