A short break in-between posts of adventures of Nori and I, when I arrived home I was met with an almost-embarrassing amount of mail. But, among those was dolly mail, and one of the girls who had arrived was the much-anticipated Pullip Alice in Steampunk World.
Groove has been going on a rampage where they’ve been re-releasing some old favourites. When they announced that Luna was making a return many collectors (myself included) jumped on it. She used to be over $300USD, and has now returned to $144 USD on Pullipstyle.
Pullip’s blog was super busy the past couple of days announcing updates to two suspected releases. The first, being the sister doll to the lovely Pullip Steampunk World Alice – is her grey-toned companion Mad Hatter.
I was sad to see photographs for the newer Groove releases by a different photographer – I found that they didn’t have as much life as previously (and were much more flat in colour) – case in point being the newest Pullip Kanaria photographs! However, I was delighted to find that Groove had commissioned Suemomo to photograph their new Alice in Steampunk World release. You can read about the interview with Suemomo and see all the photographs here.
Spunk. Attitude. Violetta just rocks it. In between the Alice releases and Anime collabs, every now and again Groove releases an amazing Pullip, and with Violetta, they really hit the nail on the head. On JPGroove’s website she is listed as the most popular release of 2014, and it’s pretty easy to see why once you have her in your hands.
I have waves of love for my girls. Sometimes I am bemused and stare at them on my shelf thinking I might have a little-person problem, and I really should downsize! And then other days, I am frantically enabling myself through blogs and flickr. It’s a terrible curse.
The worst though? Is when you take the girls out and you realise how amazing they are. This has happened to be for two girls recently, and what is special about them is that they are both customs. I’ll introduce the first one to you today, my Pullip Aurelia.
It’s been a busy weekend in Les Jeunette land, because I married my enabling ex-Fiance, now Husband on Saturday. Let it be said that my obsession with “weird Japanese Dolls” was only mentioned 3 times […]
Groove has just announced via their blog a new doll for June – Alice in Steampunk World. Groove has always had a bit of a love affair with Alice, with past releases “Alice in Wonderland”, […]
