Have you ever heard of mori girl fashion before? If not, Pullip Momori is here to teach you about one of my favourite Japanese fashion trends. ‘Mori’ means forest in Japanese and basically mori girls are dressing in a very romantic way, as if they are just happily strolling through the woods. This fashion wave stands in direct opposition to the more body conscious urban fashion for women, which is dominating Japanese work culture. Momori is a true mori girl and I also think that Groove must have hired some new artists/designers, which are responsible for her unique and beautiful look.Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Momori for October 2019
Cue the music: “Pon Pon Pon Pon Pon”…Pullip Pimmam is taking us to Harajuku and I cannot be the only one, who was immediately thinking of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu‘s worldwide hit from 2011! (She also looks like she could work in the Kawaii Monster Cafe, just saying!)Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Pimmam for October 2019
Pullip Margrethe completely caught me off guard! There is so much tartan going on, so much beige lace and so many teddy bears!
Margrethe looks quite warm in her flannels and I can see her living in Northern Europe, near a Scotthish loch and solving mysteries.Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Margrethe for August 2019
Her name is revealing it all: Pullip Cosmody is a music lover from space, who will enchant us this summer with her silvery holographic clothes, pastel make up and accessories!Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Cosmody for July 2019
Almost one year ago (on May 31st, 2018) Pullip was celebrating her 15th birthday in Yokohama. This year she was bringing the festivities to Osaka with another exhibition and a recoloured version of Pullip’s anniversary doll Etoile, who was sporting a blue theme last year. So let’s get talking about Pullip Etoile Rosette!Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Etoile Rosette Ver. for June 2019
Ever since I have been collecting Pullips, there have been a wide variety of dolls in collaboration with Japanese fashion brands. With Pullip Jeanne the company is taking a new direction by releasing a girl wearing a military lolita fashion inspired outfit. Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Jeanne for July 2019
This is going to be a rather quick post, but I think that it should definitely be worth a mention that some of my favourite dolls are going to make a comeback – as well as Pullip Funassyi being available in a super limited number on Pullip Style!
When Pullip Funassyi was announced, I mentioned on this blog, how much I was in love with the whole look, but especially with the doll’s sweet look itself, since her faceup seems to have a nice balance between sweetness and innocence with rather unique and interesting makeup. You can get her through shipping services in Japan, since she is exclusive to Funassyi Stores, but luckily Pullip Style got the okay for a limited pre-order; making it easier for buyers overseas. And yes: This June (or more realistically July) you will be able to see a review of Pullip Funassyi from me!
I also need to point out the return of Pullip Dilettante, one of my grail dolls! She is so interesting with her modern day work outfit, ginger wig and amazing purple themed eye makeup! You can read my review about her here or watch my ‘Pullip Grail’ video, in which she makes an appearance, here!
Then there is Pullip Bonnie: You can read my review about her here and I will admit right away that, while I am not a fan of her stock outfit, I believe that she is one of the most beautiful Pullips in the last few years. I need to take more pictures of her, but every day I am amazed by her beautiful lips and sophisticated eyes. Her making a comeback is truly great news!
Are you happy about these girls being available again? I have to admit that sometimes the second (or third or fourth) round of availability for older releases gets me even more excited than new ones; it’s like finding a pot of gold! (Considering that Saint Patrick’s Day was yesterday…)
Thank you so much for reading!
Pullip has found her love for Korean mythology in 2019! Just four months after releasing Pullip Kumiho, the sweet little nine tailed fox, AGA and Groove are presenting their vision of Lady Yuhwa, the mother of King Dongmyeong, the first king of Goguryeo, one of The Three Kingdoms of Korea. Not only was she the mother of a king, but legend also says that she was the daughter of a God! Continue reading My Thoughts On: Pullip Yuhwa for May 2019
I honestly have no idea, where to start. So just let me say that there is nothing, absolutely nothing about this Pullip that I don’t like! Even though I am normally super quick to jump on any kind of bandwagon that revolves around Japanese characters or mascots, yellow pear and Chiba’s representative mascot Funassyi never really tickled my fancy so much that I was okay with forking over some Yen – until now! Imagine my sorrow, when my dreams were a little crushed, when I read that this Pullip is only being promoted as a Japan exclusive release. (Although we must not forget that 2016’s Japan exclusive ‘Le Petit Prince‘ collaboration with Alice & The Pirates also found their way into international online shops…there is still hope and I am not ready to give up just yet!)

A few weeks ago I was lucky to be able to visit the new Hatsune Miku figure exhibition in Yokohama’s Doll Museum on its opening day. To celebrate the occasion, Groove Inc. was displaying their newest interpretation of the Vocaloid icon, which will go on sale this month. As of now, we do not know, whether she will become a regular release later on, but apparently the museum will only have 250 dolls for sale.
