Welcome to this very high spirited ‘My Dolly Week’ post! After months of waiting, all the entries for Groove’s custom contest have been revealed and there are some serious works of art in the run! And the best thing about this? You can vote too, even if you are unable to attend the exhibition in Yokohama! Click here for the complete contestant list and click on the individual doll pictures for more details on the creators and more importantly: Detailed pictures of the dolls and their face ups! After checking out all of the dollies (even though mostly Pullips, there are also appearances of Isul, Taeyang and Dal), you can click here for the voting ballot and support your favourite! The doll with the most votes, will be made into a Groove Creator’s Label stock doll! I am so happy that so many wonderful artists are participating and am excited to have discovered some new artists to follow!
Last week was pure organizing. I ploughed through literally all of my doll clothes and accessories to split everything up into smaller categories. I also stored away some stock clothes, which I probably won’t use anymore in the near future. And my biggest little helper was Miss Mia in her denim outfit! Did I ever mention that Mia is a born stylist?! She helped me through a lot of tough fashion choices! Her cool jeans were made by Atelier Milabrocc and Mia loves to go all denim and combine it with her denim jacket!
What I did not know about Elise, was that she is a little wig snatcher! I totally had this wig for a different girl in mind, but Elise needed some love and somehow this style makes a lot of sense for her, since it manages to blend into her look without covering up too much of her gorgeous face. It is another Luts wig that I got via Pullip Style and it is style DW-231. I was also able to remove two tiny shiny spots on her cheek with a dry magic sponge. It was such a relief!

Now onto new releases: Since we’ve already got the Pullip contest out of the way, Groove and the museum actually also announced an exciting collection of Pullip outfits, which is available in the museum shop. There are three varieties of the so called ‘Marine dress’, which are ‘Gothic Style’, ‘Ocean Style’ and ‘Feminine Style’. If I did not get it completely wrong, these sets are limited. Click here for the Doll Museum’s post, which has Pullip Gretel model all three dress sets! I am now even more jealous of everybody that gets to go to Yokohama! XD And I bet, it won’t be the last time! 😉
A new picture of a mermaid Neo-Blythe was already leaked online on Instagram and I guess that we will be seeing the official announcement in a few hours. I think that you cannot go wrong with a mermaid concept, so I am quite excited and wonder if she will be Garden of Joy’s successor and therefore the yearly anniversary release!
If you are interested in Smart Dolls like me, right now is the perfect time to make up your mind: Melody and Anniversary Mirai are not sold out anymore, Cherry has just been released and next week Smart Doll Infinity will be available as well!
Have you already voted for your favourite Pullip design? It definitely is not easy to choose! I am also feeling, how my hands are getting a bit grabby and want that new Creator’s Label doll right here, right now! 😀 How are we supposed to stand all of the anticipation?! 😀 I was quite excited that Charon Dolls and Mikiyochii are participating, since I know their outstanding craftsmanship first hand. Then there are also the amazing Eniva Queen, Polka Dolls Fabrics, Pikarina and so many more. I will feast my eyes on those gorgeous dolls many times more and really wish for the exhibition in Yokohama to be a success and to invite more people into the world of Pullip!
Thank you so much for reading!
