Superstar Hall of Fame

I’m not sure if everyone knows this but there is a collection of extraordinary Blythe pics on Flickr that you can view as a slideshow. Sit back and enjoy the Blythe 25+ Excellent Superstar Hall of Fame! group pool.

In case you’re wondering, our cover girl is by _temaki_ on Flickr. I’m not sure if she’s in the pool but I think she’s pretty cute.
