Welcome to another Dolly Week on Komonogatari! 😀 This week I have been away for a few days, but that did not stop me from getting some quality time with my dollies and there were some amazing announcements this week, which I am tremendously looking forward to!
First of all, Pullip Blanche arrived this week. I was pretty lucky to get her brand new in great condition, even though she is on a type 3-body, which are prone to be quite fragile and easy to crack especially at the wrists. Two stones fell out of her beautiful earrings, but they were securely sliding around in her box and it won’t be a hard task to glue them back in. Blanche, who I renamed Orphelia, is a stunning release. I cannot help feeling extremely lucky that she joined my family. I already love her so much! When I realised that her outfit had a lot in common with Pullip Princess Serenity, I had to make a picture of my cuties, put it on Instagram and I was quite happy and proud that it started trending under #pullip and made it to second place. I did not write on Instagram about it, but please note that I am very thankful for every support and love to share dolly love!
Actually, the more time I am spending with my dolls, the more they are getting their own characters and backstories. One day I wanted to change up Carlie’s hair and as it turns out, she is the type of girl that looks amazing in two braids. She can even wear this knitted beanie (from KukiDolls) in summer and looks amazing. I never until now knew that Carlie is an artist, who loves to paint, play guitar and play with kitties. We definitely got to know each other better this week!
New releases! It is happening, everybody! My favorite Sailor Moon tranformation, Eternal Sailor Moon, will be released as a Pullip! The news broke on Friday and since then I am floating on a cloud of Pullip love! She is simply beautiful and I am completely feeling this release! Her Premium Bandai pre-order will start on June 22nd and her expected release is in September. Last week I mentioned Groove Inc. teasing on their LINE account about a collaboration with fashion label GOUK. This week they made the announcement official on their blog and the collaboration will actually be with GOUK’s younger sister brand GOUK Ya. Since I also want another regular release from Groove, since Optical Alice came out in the middle of February, I sincerely hope that this collaboration will hold a beautiful Pullip doll for us in store!
Talking about falling in love with dolls: Pineapple Princess’ promo pictures were released last week and, I kid you not, it was love at first sight! Her summery cuteness made her way into my heart in no time and I believe we could bond over our mutual love for pineapples! 😉 Now there are only Gardenof Joy’s full stock pictures and detailed release information missing from all the announced Blythe releases we are getting in the forseeable future.
I am really looking forward to next week and hope that everybody will have a good start into the new week too!
Thank you so much for reading and take care!
