Neo Blythe made 13 years old on June 23.  In Osaka at the Junie Moon Salon a birthday bash was held and lot's of people came to wish her well.


Everyone took pictures in the rose garden ( photo booth) and ate delicious rose cookies, shopped for new wardrobe created by artists just for this event.







The next tea party will be in September and guaranteed to be a lot of fun as well!

Regina Irwin and Contessa Margarita are coming to bring happiness to your day!


I took them on a stroll and had a great time taking their photos. These are special places in my home town that made wonderful backgrounds that reflect their regal personalities. One of the places I used as location was the high school I graduated from! And another location was the royal palace of the Hawaiian King and Queen. 









It was a good day! We can't wait to share these lovely girls with the world.

Celebrating 10 Years of Junie Moon

In 2004 our shop Junie Moon of lovely Blythe dolls and all things that make us smile opened in Daikanyama. It seemed like only yesterday when we decorated the doors with flowers and the windows with lovely dolls and opened the doors for all Blythe fans to enjoy.

2004年にジュニームーンを代官山でオープンして早10年、
初めてあのドアを開けたのが昨日のように感じます。
今までちょっとずつ外装や店内のレイアウトは変わりましたけどエ
ッセンスはあの時から変わらず、ブライスドールを中心としたブライスファン必見のショップです。色々なグッズやドレスセット、ブライスをモチーフとしたアートまで見に来れるところに作り上げました。
 

The facade did change a bit here and there over the last 10 years but the essence remains the same. It's a place to come and see the line up of recent releases, a little gallery where Blythe art can be displayed and doll clothes to fill your tiny closet. And tons of Blythe souvenirs to give away, or keep for yourself.
 
そんなジュニームーンを今までサポートしてきたお礼と10周年を記念にいろんなプレゼントを用意しました。ペーパークラフトのジュニームーンショップバッグを作れるポストカードと、ジュニームーンでアシュリーを買ってくれた人限定のヘアリボンです。部数が少ない上に早い者勝ちですからお早めに!

We are celebrating the 10 years with a variety of premium gifts for our valued customers. These are thank you gifts for the loyal customers.  We started off with a paper craft gift card, that you can cut out and make your own miniature Junie Moon shopping bag.  The next premium are for the customers who buy Ashley from Junie Moon. We are giving away a ribbon for Ashley's hair. First come first serve. We only have a small quantity available so must hurry.
Over the ten years at Junie Moon, we had many exhibitions, workshops and tea parties. We had Halloween parties, Christmas Parties and  of course, Anniversary Celebrations for Blythe. This is going to be a special year for us and we hope to make it memorable. We look forward to having you visit!  Happy 10! Here are some pictures from 10 years ago and opening night 2004.

この10年で色々なイベントをジュニームーンで開催してきました
が特に今年は特別です!ジュニームーンにきてもらったファンの皆に感謝の意を込めて今年を素敵なものに作り上げることに努力します!ジュニームーン開店日の写真です。10周年バンザイ!

Botega Venetta x Blythe at Omotesando Hills


For years CWC held the annual Blythe Anniversary Charity event at Omotesando Hills. Great big billboards of Blythe graced the facade of this elegant high end shopping mall located smack in the center of Harajuku many times. Tonight I went there to see Blythe being used again, large and grand, in the window of Bottega Veneta, the world famous fashion brand known for their intricate and stylish design details and excellent workmanship. What an impact she is making. It was freezing cold tonight but every person who passed by stopped to look to take photos or just to give commentary about their impression about this great big model. One thing for sure, this window display is going down in Blythe history. Glad I got some photos!!
