Cull of older Pullips and a BJD

Just a quick sales plug from yours truly, I have recently decided to rehome a number of dolls. Most of these dolls were bought in the hopes of using them for different projects but as the year draws to a close, I have realized that there are just some projects that I may not ever actually get to so perhaps it was time for some of them to move on so I can focus on my priorities.

Most of the dolls still currently available are older Pullips, I may end up adding more as time goes on but after how crazy last year’s sale went I didn’t want to overwhelm myself so tried to keep it within the realm of somewhat manageable. There is also a single ball jointed doll that I received in a trade a while back that I just never really bonded with somehow that is available.

You can check out all the dolls available here, for any interested parties my feedback can be seen here and I can be contacted via comment or atashi.saikano@gmail.com .

Pullipstyle posted a new coupon code on their facebook page the new code bestgift is good for 10% off anything currently listed on the website and is good for an undetermined amount of time (whenever Mike runs of hot chocolate and fruit cake apparently?).

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

Sometimes the best gift of all is the one you give yourself use code bestgift to get 10% off on any purchase on the website (please note that all preorders and kits have been removed from the website). This special is good until my supply of hot chocolate and fruit cake has run out, I will let you all know when I am running low on these critical holiday cheer supplies.

A few caveats
1) We have preemptively removed some items from the website including preorders and mio kits from the website as they are not included in the sale, they will return to the site once the sale is over.
2) We reserve the right to limit quantities!
3) We can not add the code to an order once an order has been placed, so please remember to use the coupon code! Coupon codes can not be added to pre-existing orders.
4) Offer is limited to stock on hand unless specifically noted otherwise.
5) The mobile version of the website does not have a place to input coupon codes, if you are unable to checkout on a computer please use pc view of the website to checkout.

What a great opportunity to pick up any dolls that you were maybe hoping for Christmas but ended up not being under the tree. Ah, temptation! I noticed that quite a few of the Sailor Moon Pullips recently were reduced in price a bit so if you are a fan of the Sailor Moon collaboration series now is a good time to really stack on the savings!

Myself, I’m more than a bit tempted to pick up a Tiny Delf ^^;

Pullip Funassyi Classical Lolita ver new exclusive Pullip?

I happened to see something quite interesting this morning on Groove’s official twitter account, they tweeted the following link which appears to be a listing for a new exclusive Pullip! Isn’t she precious?
whatsthis
Details are still kind of scant at this time regarding her release but it appears that she will be exclusive to uho2 website, it is not known at this time if any other retailers will be able to offer her but it seems somewhat unlikely once I figured what she actually is. In Japan mascots are extremely popular and they are not just for sports teams, even towns have them! Hometown mascots or Yuru-kyara are used to promote hometowns as such merchandise of them make for very popular gifts! Funassyi is the very popular unofficial mascot of Funabashi a town in the Chiba prefecture, Funassyi is so popular that it has released CDs and has even been featured in an anime series. Both the print of the dress that the Pullip is wearing and the cute plush she is holding are inspired by the pear themed macot Funassyi.
0dfcb80347f682120ecad659be9a04d997a382a3_hqPullip Funassyi Classical Lolita Version is to be released in May, it is not known how limited the new Pullip Funassyi Classical Lolita ver will be. What is known is that she is extremely adorable and has a MSRP of 27,400 yen which is almost $242 at this time, according to xe.com.
funaAll of the little details on this release are way too cute!

Yokohama Doll Museum Exclusive Miku Pullip

As recently reported by Fashion-Press.net,  Yokohama Doll Museum is holding a Hatsune Miku Figure Exhibition from 12/8/2018- 1/31/2018. Since 2007, the virtual idol from the synthetic music software Vocaloid has inspired a merchandise empire including countless figures, plushes as well as many dolls. The Hatsune Miku Figure Exhibition highlights approximately two hundred different goods released based on Hatsune Miku including an entire army of nendoroid figures, the Volks Dollfie Dreams and the various Pullip releases based off of Miku and other virtual idols from the Vocaloid software.

Ah, Pullip now we get to the heart of the matter and why I am posting this! A new Pullip based on the poster illustration for the event is being released to commerate the event Pullip Hatsune Miku Yokohama doll’s house version. This new version of Pullip Miku will be released towards the end of the event in mid-January and her price is reported to be 23,760 yen which is approximately $210.88 as of this writing. At this time this new version of Pullip Miku appears to be exclusive to this event so the only way to get her is to go to Yokohama Doll Museum during the event, it is not yet known if any other sellers will be able to offer her after the event.

It’s a pity she is exclusive and so limited because I really feel like this is definitely one of my favorite interpations of Miku in Pullip form, I love the nautical theme!

I will update when/if additional details become available!

Pullip Bouguetin

I just realized that I had neglected to post about Pullip Bouguetin here, she was announced a little while ago now via Groove’s blog. Pullip Bouquetin will be released in March of next year in Japan, she will be released one month later here in the US. Bouqetin has a MSRP of 20000 yen which as of this writing is about $176.02.

It appears as though there may be somewhat of a zodiac theme with some of next year’s releases with Alresha Pisces also coming out, Bouquetin definitely looks as though she could be based off of the traditional Aries’ ram. It’ll be interesting to see if they continue releasing dolls with a zodiac inspiration as well as how they will interpret other zodiac signs like Scorpio…

Honestly it looks like Pullip is off to a great start in 2019, so far every release that has been announced has been exciting and different while Bouquetin isn’t my favorite of the releases that have been announced so far I think that speaks to the overall quality of recent releases.


If Aries is the inspiration then I think Bouquetin does a fantastic job of interpreting the sign, her stock outfit definitely shows off the confident side of Aries. I like the combination of corset and tulle skirt. The curly ram horns are a really neat accessory.
Even without the horns, Bouquetin looks spectacular almost like a showgirl!

The only thing I would change about Bouquetin is her wig color, I think the white kind of washes her out a bit I would have preferred a more dynamic color on her; perhaps a nice burgandy? Fortunately, wigs are something that are easy enough to change.
Back view of Bouquetin’s outfit.

Bouquetin has a really nice face up, I like the understated way her lips are done as well as her dark and dramatic eye make up. I really wish we could see more of her eyebrows, I feel like she needs really fierce eyebrows and they look a little sweet to me.
