The main reason why I know of Licca’s is because I love to stick my Blythes on their bodies. Licca-chan is basically Japan’s Barbie, she’s popular, and sometimes, she has very special releases. A few months back I was scrolling through when I saw the most whimsical little set-up, and I was in love! I set out trying to find this little Licca-Chan Kiki.
Bitten by the BJD Bug… and hello Kikipop!
So sometime last year I started researching the BJDs (Ball-Jointed Dolls). You could say that my interest had already been spiked by the addition of the JerryBerries to my family – and people do say Blythe and Pullip are gateways to the land of BJD.
And they would probably be right. So what did I just do…?
Hatsune Miku meets Blythe!
My first introduction to dolls really was when my brother bought be a Hatsune Miku Pullip. I found out later that Blythe had a version too… and she was translucent! She became a wishlist doll, but she slowly moved her way down, and sometimes out of the list. However, on a recent trip to Shanghai, I found her in one of the official Blythe stores… for an amazing price. Let’s meet Miku!
Giddiness, Fluffiness and Unicorns. Miss My Melody makes her entrance.
I’ve never quite fallen in love with a girl before she was even announced. Junko Wong posted a sneak peak of My Melody back in January, with her big fluffy ears and bright pink hair… and I was completely smitten. She’s an adventure to get this girl, but she’s full of snuggliness, and I understand that weird name “Softly Cuddly you and Me” – she looks like she could give you a good hug. I’d like to introduce you to the newest girl in my collection, and the one I’ve had to jump through the most hoops to get.
Pic heavy because I think I have a duty to share her – she’s a rare beast at the moment.
