This weekend was my Hens (Bachelorette) party. I was picked up by my friends and spirited off for a weekend of pampering and relaxation and general partying! It was such an awesome weekend and I […]
The First Blythe – Induction by Fire
I’m a Pullip girl at heart. I love their stock, the detail, the collabs, the potential for customs. Blythe’s were interesting to me but I did not understand the hobby at the time – I […]
Always prettier in person
Have you ever seen a doll online where you just thought the pictures were okay, and really didn’t appreciate it until you saw it in person? For me, the effect was never so great until […]
Udon, my Noodle-legged Yeolume
Yeolume is a weird little dolly in the Pullip family. She appeared for two releases (Podo and Blackberry) before her releases dried up faster than the Sahara. I’d be the first to admit that she wasn’t my favourite dolly, but after seeing some truly gorgeous versions of her… I decided she may have potential as a customisation.
The Waiting Room & Wishlist
There are some dolls you see photos of at the beginning and you immediately love them. This has happened to me on a few occasions, namely Pullip Nana-Chan & Kiyomi, Blythe Curly Blue Babe & Bianca Pearl and then… this My Melody Blythe.
I completely fell in love with her. She might be a Japanese exclusive, and currently priced at 26,500円 (Yikes!).
Blackberry arrived in the mail recently! I love her stock and her glorious wig. I purchased Blackberry after falling in love with the Yeolume mould with PODO. I’m gonna try something a bit different with her customisation 🙂
More pictures and a midget review of Blackberry after the break!
Dawn, Pullip Eos
There were very few Pullip’s in their stock that have caught my eye in the way Eos has. I truly think that she is one of the most beautiful Pullip’s ever released!
More images after the break.
Gumji, the Ruby-Haired Blythe
Blythe dolls are a curiosity to me. Their large heads, shiny faces, and eyes that change colour. It was through browsing Flickr and seeing Almond Doll’s and Hola Gominola’s that I started to love this weird little gal.
Udon goes exploring
You always have a soft spot for one of your creations – and for me, it’s Udon. Udon is a project Yeolume doll. She’s been rebodied with a Pure Neemo XS, had her hair and eyes redone, and her face a few times.
Nana-Chan by Les Jeunette on Flickr
There’s the first doll that you own – in my case a Hatsune Miku Pullip – and then there’s the one that gets you addicted. I had two when I really fell into the rabbit hole. My second Pullip doll was a Serenity Sailor Moon – another gift. One of my previous childhood loves was Sailor Moon, and when Serenity arrived at my doorstep I was completely fascinated by her delicate lace layers, her floaty dress and ridiculous high-heeled pumps. But I wasn’t hooked – yet.
