This might be a bit soon, but at the same time editing this video just made me too excited to not share right away: Are you looking to gift a Pullip doll to somebody, but have no clue where to begin? Or are you a doll collector, who is a little out of the loop, when it comes to the world of Pullips? No problem, this gift guide has you covered! 😊
Whee, here I am! 🙈 Being in front of the camera is a completely different experience, but at least I had good company. 😉 This tag is really old, but I thought that it would be a nice way to introduce myself to you. That being said, it took me three times to film this thing and lots of computer crashes while editing, so to finally be able to share it, is my own personal miracle! 😹
Pullip Lupinus was released in November 2016 and pretty much immediately joined my dolly family. She is part of Groove Inc.’s Creator’s Label line and the creator behind Lupinus is Japanese artist Silver Butterfly, who had already designed the outfit for Pullip Galene in 2012. Honestly, don’t miss out on this girl! 🍭

Happy Easter, everyone! Whether you celebrate it or not, I hope you are having a nice little spring holiday! Last week was a whirlwind for me and I unfortunately could not invest as much time into my dolls, as I would normally like to. On the plus side, I started fixing my sleep schedule and ventured out into nature (during the day) to break the bad habit of living like a vampire (nothing against vampires, but it was just not working out for me..)! Miss Minnie welcomes you and let’s get started! Continue reading My Dolly Week #58: Happy Easter!
Welcome to another Sunday post! I hope, you are doing well! Temperatures in Central Europe are so cold right now, which leaves you with more time to stay inside and play with your dollies. Even though we are playing inside, my dollies’ wardrobe is constantly updated with more winter gear. Probably because dolls are simply the cutest, when wearing layers, scarves and coats! Sencha being the newest arrival, got spoiled a few days ago with this lovely camel coloured cape from Ringo No Matsuri, which even comes with it’s own white fluffy collar. Miss Sencha is staying warm this winter!
I always feel weird, when there is no proper review before or right after a new year begins. This blog will turn one year old at the end of February, which marks 2017 as its most important year, since starting new things is always the biggest step to take. Many wonderful things happened this year and I am happy to share them with you!
One year ago I did not have any clue about customizing my Pullips. Changing eyechips was a terrifying thought and I did not get the appeal of re-wigging, even though I detected some quality issues with certain stock wigs. I did however start to change them out of their stock clothes, mainly because I wanted my Pullip Sailor Neptune not to be battle ready all of the time and to be able to relax with the other girls. (Imagine all of your dolls wearing long lolita-type dresses and then there is Sailor Neptune right next to them in a mini skirt and bare legs.) As soon as I had discovered Etsy, a new world opened up with that many creators of doll clothes and accessories around the world, there are truly limitless possibilities to get creative!
Are you ready for more gashapon that are perfect for your dolls and for your (in my case imaginary) doll house?! Then let’s begin right away! 😉
I was so happy, when I found these! These keyrings (the actual keyrings can be super easily removed) came in two different designs with tons of different color variations. The first design imitates an oldschool camera, which looks pretty cool. But I had to play three times until I got the modern looking DSLR, which I really wanted for my dolls to have. Both kinds light up by pressing a button in accordance with a super fake sounding shutter noise. From my experience, I only saw this machine once and it sold out pretty quickly. Also the sound and light effect is already broken on one camera and pretty weak on another, which let’s me guess that they are pretty old. So get on it as long as you still can!
When I started collecting Pullips, I was sure that I was never going to change them out of their stocks. Little did I know, how much fun lies in customizing and how much creativity is truly involved for a cute result. Today I want to show you the first wigs that I got for my Pullips. I got five wigs from Korean retailer Leeke World and one from Groove’s own MIO line. All Leeke World wigs in this post are in the size 8-9 inches! Continue reading Wig Haul #1: Leeke World & MIO
Welcome to the 22nd My Dolly Week post, in which we will discuss the newest announcements from Groove, promo pics for upcoming Blythes and were I can finally share the end of another dolly customizing project. Let’s start!
My Pullip Marie got a complete makeover. At first I wanted her to get a new dark brown wig, but this flowy and gorgeous baby blue wig from Leeke practically jumped into the shopping cart on its own. It is probably the softest wig ever and its color is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. Truly lush, long and flowy, its pastel tone compliments Marie’s very light and subtle brows. It also helps that her face-up consists out of earthy tones, which go well with a pop of color!
Custom doll artists Kiki & Chrysanthemum make beautiful custom eyechips for their dolls and occasionally put a few pairs of them on sale. I got a pair consisting out of two different colors, silver with a little bit of bronze and indigo blue, which sparkles beautifully. It all came together in a crazy way, when I realized that these had to be the new eyechips for Marie and her luxurious wig. Fate struck and the Carmenred Lolita Witch Dress set, which I got over half a year ago through Sugar Lattice Doll Boutique, came into my mind. Why not answer pastels with even more pastels?! Her lace-up booties are the stock boots from Pullip Cheshire Cat. I just love this feeling of making the most of a doll you really care about. And I am so happy that I lost my shyness to change up my stock dolls’ looks because it makes it all so much more fun for me!
Of course there are certain dolls, I do not ever plan to change up somehow, but if there is something you do not absolutely love, you can play with your sense of aesthetics and try out new things! This also applied to me with Pullip Lupinus, whose stock is great, but she just so much more feels like my doll now. Lu looks like a fluffy bunny now, who just wants to relax in her comfy clothes all day. I told her that that’s the right way to go! Comfy is awesome, when you are as adorable as her!
