Could you please introduce yourself to all BCEU attendees?
I’m a computer engineer from Madrid, Spain. I discovered the Blythe doll in 2008 and,  after that love at first sight, I couldn’t help myself to start customizing them. My dolls are cute, sweet and colorful  but they can also be a little dark, vampiric, and punk. I love to  transform original dolls completely but keeping their essence giving them life as if they were little girls.

How and when did you join the Blythe community?
I discovered Blythe dolls by accident surfing the web and I fell in love with them at first sight! In 2008 my boyfriend bought me my first Blythe: Lucy. That’s how it all started. Blythe community is great. I have been able to meet amazing people of which some are very good friends.

Why did you start customizing / sewing / crafting?
I’ve always loved creating new things and when I discovered the freedom to do so that Blythe dolls offer I didn’t hesitate and started customizing them.
I always have new ideas in mind and I see Blythe dolls as a blank canvas on which to materialize those ideas. These dolls have brought back inspiration to draw and create things related to them

Where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration in my everyday life…movies, books, memories, family photos, comics…and of course in a community where customizers seem to have no limits! I love it!

What will you offer us in your stall?
In my stand I’ll probably offer 2 blythes in which I’m working on right now…they are cyberpunk syle but very sweet and cute…I’ll also have printed illustrations made by me. I’ll offer a live piercing service so…don’t forget to bring your coolest dolls!! It will be a pleasure to meet you!!!

Lastly, could you tell us about your next projects?
I discovered Pullip dolls sometime ago and I have some projects with them right now. They’re great because they offer other possibilities. I have also some pending Blythes to finish like for example a wolf-cyberpunk I’m making in honor of my dog Tara.

Statue of Paris. From Wikipedia: Paris was the son of Priam, king of Troy, and his wife Hecuba. He appears in several Greek legends and in Virgil’s epic poem Aeneid. Sent by his father as an ambassador to Sparta, Paris fell in love and eloped with Helen, queen of Sparta, which caused the Trojan War. After the Spartans arrived in Troy, Menelaus, king of Sparta, challenged Paris to a duel for Helen’s return. Paris was soundly beaten by the king and was saved at the last minute by Aphrodite spirits. Later, Paris, who was a skilled archer, fatally wounded Achilles in the heel with an arrow that was guided by Apollo.

At Wikipedia you see an detailed overview of all sculptures at the Schönbrunn garden.

At St. Stephen’s Cathedral. From Wikipedia: St. Stephen’s Cathedral (German: Stephansdom) is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna and the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, OP. The current Romanesque and Gothic form of the cathedral, seen today in the Stephansplatz, was largely initiated by Duke Rudolf IV (1339–1365) and stands on the ruins of two earlier churches, the first a parish church consecrated in 1147. The most important religious building in Austria’s capital, St. Stephen’s Cathedral has borne witness to many important events in that nation’s history and has, with its multi-coloured tile roof, become one of the city’s most recognizable symbols.

Look, behind me you can see the Frankfurt Cathedral (German: Frankfurter Dom, officially Kaiserdom Sankt Bartholomäus). It is a Roman Catholic Gothic church located in the centre of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is dedicated to Saint Bartholomew. St. Bartholomew’s is the main church of Frankfurt and was constructed in the 14th and 15th centuries.

The castle and the surrounding town which has the same name were first mentioned in a historical context in the year 1258. The castle is a museum. It was very impressive to walk through this old castle.
