Our First ButtonArcade!

Long have I been waiting...PMing, and deciding over getting a Button Arcade dress. For those who don't know, they are adorable Blythe dresses with felt pockets, created by a Blythe collector and crafster named Kyle.

From candy pockets, to holiday themes, to simple hearts and stars, Kyle makes the most amazingly themed dresses...and they are difficult to get! The commission list for dresses seems impossibly long, and every time a seller lists, "Designer names, ButtonArcade, etc" the BA dresses are almost always labeled "SOLD" by the time I get to them.

Borrowed this adorable photo from Sozzielou; Edna and the gang sporting cute BA!

What I like about BA dresses is that they are Blythe 'designer' without being impossibly priced. I think Bambina Carabina hats are adorable. I will not pay upward of 60.00 for them. I like Squeaky Monkey and Eurotrash fashions, but again, more money than I would willingly spend on clothes for MYSELF. No thanks.

I realized when I thought about getting one for Cassie, that it really doesn't fit Cassie's Indie-girl style at all. These cute dresses suit my beauty-queen Fawn much better. Naturally, when I saw a dress with little white deer silhouettes, I knew that I had to have it for her. I PMed the seller, and it was already pending payment from someone else. DRAT! The seller was wonderful and kept me posted when payment fell through, and I got the dress for Fawnyboo!
