Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll has served as the inspiration for countless Jun Planning/Groove dolls over the years; there have been many different interpretations of Alice released just to mention a few of them there have been Classical Alice, Alice du Jardin and Lunatic Alice series. The latest series of dolls based on Alice in Wonderland has a steampunk theme. Groove has previously released two series of steampunk inspired Pullips and friends the original series (Eos, Ra Muw, Rhiannon, Gyro & Apollo) and the second series ~ Eclipse~ (Aurora, Icarus, Moirai, Pluto & Helios). Alice in Wonderland and steampunk are both very popular themes for Pullip releases, we’ve seen them before from Groove but we’ve never seen them together so why not combine them to make an awesome new series of dolls?
Pullip Alice in Steampunk World is the first doll that was released as a part of this new series, since her release she has been joined by Pullip Mad Hatter in Steampunk World & Isul White Rabbit in Steampunk World. A Dal version of Alice in Steampunk World has also been teased to us at Doll Show 43 back in May, I hope that the Dal is released in the future and I’d kill for a really awesome Steampunk inspired Cheshire Cat. The photo below is from Groove’s Blog,it was taken at Doll Show 43 and it shows the yet to be announced/released Dal Alice, Pullip Alice Pullip Mad Hatter.
Pullip Alice in Steampunk World was released in June of this year, she has a MSRP of 18000 yen. She is an original design by Ars Gratia Artis, she was the first non-collaboration Pullip released this year she has since been joined by two other original designs Mad Hatter and Sweet Eve who I recently reviewed here.
I love Alice in Wonderland and the myriad different interpretations that Groove has come up with over the years so when she was announced, I was very excited for her. I originally had intentions of preordering her but with all the various Pullip sales via Pullipstyle and JPGroove she kind of moved down on my list of priorities as I pursued some deals as Groove’s Sample Sale and Pullipstyle’s Friday Sales colluded to kill my wallet this year. I was extremely fortunate to recently receive Alice as a review doll from JPGroove along with Sweet Eve. Thanks to JPGroove for making this review possible!
