THE DOLLY COLLECTOR TAG 🎀

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! 😹

Thank you so much for watching! 💕 Theri Continue reading THE DOLLY COLLECTOR TAG 🎀

My (Updated) Blogiversary Dolly Wishlist!

Pullips Elodie Day & MarieI am so excited for this post and have so much to update, since I have decided to only share my dolly wishlist every six months! This way, it is way easier for me to evaluate, which girls I actually want to move in with me (after the first phase of infatuation) and to keep track with the overall number of my cuties. This is also the first post, where I am going to talk about different types of dolls I really like and about my current collection, for example about which changes some girls might go through in the future. Let’s start! Continue reading My (Updated) Blogiversary Dolly Wishlist!

Visiting the Junie Moon Store in Shinjuku!

Inside of Junie Moon in Shinjuku!The Junie Moon shop inside of Shinjuku’s Marui Annex building was the first I have ever visited, but I do not believe that I will not sneakily stop by once more (Edit: I did a few days after I wrote that! 😀 ). Their main focus are Takara Tomy’s Blythe dolls and they sell lots of accessories; even cute stationary, bags, wallets, etc. for super fans.

The available stock Blythe dolls.The Neo-Blythe dolls available were Vera Florentine, Joanna Gentianna, Gracey Chantilly, Ufo A Go-Go, Varsity Dean and Playful Raindrops, along with Middie-Blythes Dainty Meadow and Rampion of the Valley.

The wall with all of the dolly clothes!Junie Moon also produces their own doll clothes, which are mostly on a 1/6 scale and will also fit dolls like Pullip or Momoko. Their label is called ‘Junie Moon Dollywear’ and often collaborates with different brands. Right now they sell two gorgeous sets designed by Japanese lolita fashion brand ‘Alice and the Pirates’ and four lovely sets in collaboration with Sanrio’s ‘Little Twin Stars’ characters. Their doll clothes are not cheap, but they are lovely and well made. Definitely worth a splurge!

Pretty and affordable hair pins!My most favorite part of the shop, was the corner with lots of pretty hair clips for super reasonable prices. I cannot imagine more kawaii hairclips than those available in Junie Moon! Almost as exciting was their tiny selection of doll clothes created by other creators, formost Jiajiadolls. I had a hard time resisting, but I have so many items from Jiajiadolls on my wishlist that I plan to order them through her Etsy shop.

Jiajiadoll's outfit! Another outfit by Jiajiadoll!Also very interesting is their small selection of glasses (or their plastic frames) and shoes, which are mainly by the obitsu brand. My favorites were cute ballet flats in baby blue and pink that I had already seen on Etsy. I don’t know their exact label, but they were also available in black and white, as were other pleather platform heels and boots. Super cute is their 3-pack of cute dolly panties for just 1000 Yen.

Cute mugs!If you want to own lots of accessories with cute Blythes on them, you are in luck: You have a wide selection from washi tapes to notebooks and various calendars. You can even go as far as purchasing totes, shopping bags and wallets.

Restyled Pineapple Princess!Different hairstyles!There is also lots of eye candy in the store, starring stock Blythes redressed with new hairstyles. This is how I spotted a wildly popular and therefore sold out Neo-Blythe Pineapple Princess. You can even bring your doll to the store as well and use one of their petite and über cute photo backgrounds.

Custom Blythe!Custom Blythe!With a logically higher price tag, there are also some custom dolls available, which were so interesting to check out. Especially for me, since I have never had seen a custom Blythe in the wild before! 😉

A real cutie!Before you visit the store, I can absolutely recommend you its Instagram account, which gets frequently updated and where you can check out any sales or promotions. Actually, the next day after my shopping tour, lots of Halloween and even some Christmas outfits became available in the Shinjuku location with a 50% off discount tag.

Custom Middie!I also visited their Shibuya location as well and do a detailed dolly haul separately! 😉

Thank you so much for reading!

My Dolly Week #11: Home Sweet Home, please come home!

Welcome everybody! It has been 11 weeks, since this segment started and this week my dolly week was mainly occupied with looking into future releases. Unfortunately, there is still no info on future Pullip or Pullip family releases from Groove. I am comforting myself with the presence of Optical Alice right next to me and am still hoping that there will finally be a Sunday post with an exciting Pullip release announcement!

My Blythie (Ufo A GoGo) and Lola (Lorshek Molseh)
I wonder, what those cuties are thinking about future Blythe releases?! Let’s find out!

My Dolly Week #7: Happy Palm Sunday!

Welcome to the seventh Dolly Week post! These are the weekly posts, in which I like to talk about all the random dolly- or toy-related things that crossed my way in the last seven days! Happy Palm Sunday! Can you believe that Easter is closing in?! (I mean, we all kind of have to, but still!)

Alice and Blythie wish you a happy Palm Sunday! Please stay warm and don’t catch a cold!!!

First of all: Komonogatari now has its own Twitter and Instagram and the links are in the side bar. Please feel free to check them out and I will post regular updates! Slowly I am getting the hang of it. Continue reading My Dolly Week #7: Happy Palm Sunday!

My Dolly Week #6: Lots of Blythe-Love!

Welcome to my weekly post about all things that relate to dollies!

Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go tried living with the pandas for a week!
Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go tried living with the pandas for a week! Perfect disguise!

This week I fell down the rabbit hole to all things Blythe-related. Last week I already mentioned that I have not been to the physical Junie Moon store in Tokyo yet and now I found out that there is a brand-new store in the Marui Annex building in Shinjuku, where I actually spent some time last year because this department store also contains restaurants and a cinema. The best thing about this store is that it has its own instagram, where you can check out the beautiful interior and cuties on display. I love what they did to Ufo A Go-Go’s hair. I tried to copy it, but I still have a long way to go how to handle my dolls’ hair. In general my Blythe’s hair feels quite different than my Pullips’. More slippery and greasy?!

My Dolly Week #4

Optical Alice can finally wear her head bow!
Optical Alice can finally wear her head bow!

Another Sunday and time for another Dolly Week, where I talk about all the doll- and sometimes toy-related things I did in the last week. First of all: The secret to Optical Alice‘s head bow has finally been lifted thanks to Angela fom Omocha Crush’s review on YouTube. Finally I was able to clip it on to her head, where it will stay for a long time now because you have to use a lot of pressure against her forehead, which was a pain mentally. Why would you want to use pressure with an object out of metal against your doll’s forehead?! I am not the biggest fan. At least it looks cute! Continue reading My Dolly Week #4

My Dolly Week #3

Another week has past and I welcome you to the third post of my weekly segment, where I like to ramble on about all dolly-related things. This week I wrote reviews about Ufo A Go-Go, my first Neo-Blythe ever, and Pullip Marie, the latest collaboration with Angelic Pretty.

Review: Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go

Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go
Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go

Ufo A Go-Go is a recent Neo-Blythe release and the first Blythe in my collection. I started collecting Pullips with Alice du Jardin Mint and so it is not a big surprise that I was drawn to Ufo A Go-Gos minty hair. She is supposed to be an alien that works in space, which explains her awesome and funky outfit. She was released in Japan in December 2016 and I cannot imagine that she will be the last Blythe to grace my home. Continue reading Review: Neo-Blythe Ufo A Go-Go
