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

Review: PULLIP KÜHN 🧙♀️
Pullip Kühn is here to bring a little magic into our day-to-day lives! This beautiful magician was released in 2013 and is one of the six beautiful Pullips of the Creator’s Label line, who have a face-up by Japanese artist mitsubachi@BabyBee. Kühn’s outfit was designed by Cranky Gel. I cannot resist her, you could almost say that I am enchanted by her! 🧙♀️
Thank you so much for watching! 💕 Theri

Review: PULLIP ALURA ♣
Do you like it dark, yet sweet?! Pullip Alura has you covered! This sweet girl was released in 2015 as part of Groove’s Creator’s Label line in collaboration with British photographer Laura/Pure Embers, mitsubachi@BabyBee and Momolita. She is the little sister of Pullip Laura, who was released a few months prior in the same year.

Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Laura
A lot of people worked on Pullip Laura to make an amazing Pullip release in 2015! Photographer Pure Embers, whose legal name is Laura, is behind Laura’s whole design. Laura is her vision. Her face-up was inspired by Pullip Seila and made by the same artist mitsubachi@BabyBee! Her outfit was made by Momolita and doll magazine Dolly Japan collaborated with the release as well, putting Pullip Laura on its cover. Continue reading Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Laura
Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Seila
Pullip Seila was one of those dolls that I thought I would never own. She has been sold-out for quite some time as of this writing and there are still a ton of collectors, who are looking for her, out there. Nearly two months ago I was refreshing Mandarake and Seila suddenly showed up at the very top of the Pullip listings. I clicked that order button in a complete daze and was fast enough to get her. She was a major find for me and I am still not over the endorphins from this particular Saturday!
Seila was originally released in 2012 as part of Groove Inc.’s Creator’s Label. Her face up was created by mitsubachi@BabyBee, who has worked a lot with Groove since then (I already reviewed Pullip My Melody HEN-NAKO Ver. and Pullip Galene) and HIROKO/Daisy-D was the mastermind behind her clothes. For me Seila is the perfect gothic lolita from head to toe. Everything about her is of such high quality that there is no reason to question anymore, why this doll is so widely loved in the Pullip community.

Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Galene
Pullip Galene is a Creator’s Label release from 2012. Mitsubachi@BabyBee created her face-up and Silver Butterfly her stock-outfit. The meaning behing her name is galena/blue lead, which explains the soft colors of Galene’s overall look. Out of all the Pullip that were sold-out, when I finally started collecting, Galene initially wandered on top of my list of grails. I missed out on her at least a few times, when I finally saw that the price of a listing on ebay had been significantly reduced. And this is how a brand-new Pullip Galene found her way into my collection. Continue reading Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Galene
Review: Pullip Creator’s Label My Melody HEN-NAKO Ver.
Pullip My Melody HEN-NAKO was the first Pullip release in 2016. She came out in January as a new Creator’s Label doll and a collaboration with Sanrio, who is mostly known for characters like Hello Kitty, My Melody, Cinnamoroll, etc. In 2007 there even was a Pullip Hello Kitty and in 2008 the original Pullip My Melody released, but this time Groove asked well-known creator mitsubachi@BabyBee (who also worked on Pullips Seila, Galene, Kühn, Laura and Alura) to reinterpret My Melody’s character in her own way in 2016. This My Melody also wears the name HEN-NAKO, which is Japanese for “strange child”. HEN-NAKO is a character that mitsubachi@BabyBee created herself and in an awesome interview with The Dolly Insider, she mentions that she was inspired by HEN-NAKO’s and My Melody’s similarities to design My Melody HEN-NAKO Ver., who despite her quite unusual features has gotten hard to find as of the writing of this post. Continue reading Review: Pullip Creator’s Label My Melody HEN-NAKO Ver.
Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Lupinus
Pullip Lupinus is (with her counterpart Dal Quince) the latest release in the Groove Inc. Creator’s Label line. She came out in November and was created by Silver Butterfly, who previously also designed the outfits for Galene and Nana-chan. When she was announced, the number one discussion was about her eyechips, which do not have pupils. I made up my mind about her, after I saw her in person in Akihabara in Tokyo. Her cute face left such a huge impression on me that I ordered her a few weeks later. Continue reading Review: Pullip Creator’s Label Lupinus
