She arrived without her stock eye shadow and that typical SBL downward gaze. If I remember right, she had a slight melt mark from her pull chord which I buffed out.
I started following a fellow Blythe collector on Instagram named Coffeedove. I was drawn in by her images of reptiles, and other animals, and her illustrations. About a week ago Coffeedove posted an offer of free custom work. I though why not!
I never could decide what to do with poor Poe. She is the most neglected doll in my collection. In preparation for her travels I opened up Poe. I've had some experience opening SBLs, including the hack saw method.
Now, she looks amazing! The following are Coffeedove's images:

I should be seeing her on Monday!
