So you have just started getting into the doll hobby, but everything is confusing and you are not completely sure, where everybody is taking their infos from and always seem better informed than you?! Look no further: Your girl is going to list all of her favorite doll company blogs, so that you can start bookmarking and plan your next purchases!
It is that time again: During the weekend we were treated to the official announcements of Isul Yun, who we’ll talk about later, and Pullip Hello Kitty 45th Anniversary Version. This makes Hello Kitty the third Sanrio character to get a revamp in AGA/Groove release history and her concept is a mixture of classic red and white Hello Kitty with a sprinkle of chocolate brown.
Welcome to a new Dolly Week, everybody! This time I am one year older and the proud owner of my first MiniFee and Silkstone Barbie.
The ending of ‘Final Fantasy X’ completely broke my heart and I am now playing its successor ‘FFX-2’. I love these games so much, it makes me so happy that I called my MiniFee Shushu, Rikku! I actually think that it fits her character really well and that she is super cute. Last week her wig came in the mail and now only her shoes are missing for her first video appearance. I love her so much, it is literally a whole new world!
Pullip meets mascot Funassyi in this collaboration with the funny pear fairy from Funabashi City in Japan’s Chiba prefecture. I had to wait for this girl a long time and am now finally able to share her with you! Now I wonder, whether there will be more versions of this girl in different fashion styles. 🍐✨
When I saw the picture above from Groove’s tweet on July 14th, I knew that I would have some sneaking around to do – or to find out as much as possible about the little witch girl and her blurred out colleagues!
The little witch, as it turns out, is magician Marisa Kirisame, a main character from ‘Touhou Project’. Now ‘Touhou Project’ does ring a bell, but I have no idea about the plot of the games/manga/anime. When it comes to Pullip releases from certain franchises I haven’t seen yet, I normally get really deep into the stories to learn more. So time will tell, if it will become a ‘Rozen Maiden’/’Revolutionary Girl Utena’ situation for me. My guess is that she will be officially announced pretty soon. Marisa looks really cute, but I feel like her face might be too pale for my taste.
Onto the blurred out dolls: Apparently we are talking about Pullip Claudia and Isul Yuri?! When it comes to Isul, I am not sure about anything. I just guess that they displayed him twice to show off his shirt and jacket at the same time.
Pullip Claudia on the other hand is so much fun for me because I keep speculating, which Pullip or Pullips are printed onto the fabric of her dress. I also love the indigo blue colour and her fancy little hat. I could have done without her plastic boots though, to be honest!
Are you a fan of ‘Touhou Project’? Do you like speculating about upcoming releases?
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.
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!)
Let’s celebrate Pullip’s 15th anniversary together with this review of Pullip Etoile Rosette Ver., who is the second variation of last year’s original blue-themed doll. I am so happy that I didn’t miss out on her this time and am happy to share her beauty with you! ⭐
Thank you so much for watching! 💕 Theri
