I’m not a Dal person. She has a grumpy face, funny eyes – in fact, I only have 3 Dals (Risa, Joujou and Heiwa). But, let’s just say when I fall for one of these girls, I fall heavily.
The ‘Flower Shower’ girls (Penny and Berry) were the 18th Limited Edition releases for JerryBerry, and the Summer release for JerryBerry. When they were announced, I love all the teaser photographs for them. Light, airy, with a little summer breeze. The girls looked sleepy and glowy as they passed summer days and nights. With this in mind, and keen to see what the process was like to order a Limited doll from Jerryberry, plus I was in my Jerryberry loving mode. Penny arrived 6 weeks after I ordered her.
Quick preface – I kind of really love Sailor Moon. The first things I ever collected were artbooks… and Sailor Moon trinkets. I still have a sweet collection of star lockets, which I just adore. *Fighting Evil by Moonlight!* I of course was overjoyed when I saw Sailor Moon x Pullip, and jumped on Princess Serenity. I’ve been pretty good and restrained from buying others (I only have Sailor Neptune and Mars to add) but when human Luna was announced I was overjoyed. She was such a niche character!
I was disappointed when I didn’t win the lottery for Cherry Beach – but I guess one of the pros of yammering on about dolls all the time is that my friends start to recognise that I love them. One of them, happening upon this “Tan girl with a blue dress” in Hong Kong, asked me if I wanted to pick her up. Of course I did – and she was within $10 of RRP. I was stoked.
Bloody Red Hood has long been touted as one of the best releases Groove has ever done. And it’s not hard to see why – let me introduce you to the fabulous, blood-red, wine coloured beauty.
Before I received my Welcome Winter girl (now called Snowberry) I was mournfully thinking that I would never be able to receive a limited edition JerryBerry so I put in an order for a Basic. She took 3-4 weeks to make, and arrived at my door last week. I’d like to introduce to you the ‘basic’ Berry.
One of the very first Blythe’s was enamoured with was Alexis Emerald. I lusted over her for a long time – before I started collecting. I loved her both in stock form and customised form. When Marrakesh Melange was released I thought that would satiate my need for a emerald-haired beauty… but the more I looked at comparison photos I knew it wasn’t the same. So I waited. And waited. Finally, months later, she showed up for a fantastic price (in Australia too!) on Dolly Adoption.
Dauphine Dream is the 14th Anniversary doll for the return of Neo-Blythe. She arrived with much pomp and circumstance, and with a great thud on my door step. Let me introduce you to one fancy lady.
