Upcoming Pullip Event Pullip 15th Anniversary-dream of the starry sky at Umeda souk

The first Pullips were released way back in July of 2003, to celebrate Pullip’s fifteenth anniversary an event called the Pullip 15th Anniversary Dream of the Starry Sky Event was held at Yokohama Doll Museum last year. It included a month long exhibition as well as a custom doll contest where the winner was made into an actual doll release (Pullip Secret Garden of White Witch). As part of the continued celebration of Pullip’s fifteenth anniversary Groove has just recently announced the final celebration event for Pullip’s 15th Anniversary via their blog, it will be held at Hankyu Umeda Main Store 10th floor Umeda souk From Chuo Ward Park from April 10-April 16th.

The event will feature a “Love Helm Pullip Talk Show & Sign Event” at the Pullip Exhibition Hall on April 13th with renowned doll artist Mitsubachi@BabyBee (previously featured as a part of the creator’s label line of dolls, they designed Isul MAO, Pullip Kuhn and several other dolls featured as a part of the line) as well as musician Yoko Hamasaki. Following the talk show will be an autograph session for the first thirty people in attendance to have spent over 3000 yen. There will also be exclusive items for sale at the event as well as several vendors selling Pullip products.

One of the things to come out of the event last year was the release of Pullip Etoile, she did end up getting a somewhat limited distribution after the event but she was a fairly limited release. This year’s poster is teasing the release of Pullip Etoile Rosette Version which is basically a pink version of Etoile, while she will not be released in time for the event there will be some type of bonus for those who preorder her at the event. She is to be released in June and will cost 20000 yen, it is not known at this time which stores will be able to offer her.

Here are some of the items you can look forward to at the event:
20190404200345aa5The O-830 Love My Collection Marine Dress Lolita White Version will be available for 3800 yen, this one is my favorite of this year’s outfit sets it’s a very classic design and color scheme.
20190404200347563The O-829 Love My Collection Marine Dress Lolita Style Gold Version will be available for 3800 yen. While I’m quite fond of the white dress set, I’m not as big a fan of the gold dress set, the gold color just seems a bit unappealing to me I think the gold works better as an accent and is a bit garrish otherwise.
20190404200348725Pullip Les Secrets by Laduree makes a very cute model for both of the new outfit sets! Groove’s blog notes that these items are available as a pre-release product at the event but the similar Love My Collection dress sets were listed as such last year and a wider release never materialized for them. Last year’s marine dresses can be seen here, which is your favorite?  I will say that I was fortunate enough to get the black Love My Collection dress set last year and I was really happy with it’s quality.
20190404200348eb6A white and silver version of Pullip Bouguetin’s stock outfit will be available for purchase at the event. The outfit set O-831 Outfit Selection Bouguetin White Version will cost 6800 yen, according to Groove’s blog it will receive a wide release at a later date and time which is I hope is true because I much prefer the clean white and silver look over the somewhat gaudy black and gold look.
20190404200349dce
My biggest complaint about Pullip Bouguetin as a release is that she looked a bit disjointed with her dark stock outfit and combination of white wig/blue eyes, I wish the white version of the outfit was what came on the doll as it seems to suit the doll beautifully and looks like a much more cohesive, well put together design. I hope that the Pullip Bouquetin white version outfit set becomes available for wide release after the event as I would love the outfit for my own Bouguetin.
20190404200351653Pullip Etoile Rosette Version’s outfit will be available for purchase seperately at the event for 7400 yen, I’m a bit torn about this it’s a nice to have the option to get the outfit seperately if you want her outfit but don’t neccesarily want the doll but the price seems a bit high for just the outfit. My understanding is this outfit will only be available for purchase at this event.
20190404200352769This does give us a nice first look at how Pullip Etoile Rosette Version looks alongside her predesssor Pullip Etoile who was released last year as a part of the Pullip 15th Anniversary ♥ ~ Starry Sky Dream ~ event at Yokohama Doll Museum. I love the two of them together as a pair but if I had to choose only one, I think I would still prefer the original with her more traditional galaxy print over the new version.20190404200353866When MIO kits originally debuted there was also a run of doll bodies made which were great for replacement parts, unlike the MIO kits the sold separately bodies had never been re-released. The bodies are also being pre-released at this event and will have a wider release following the event (rumor says some time this summer).  Prices are as follow MB-006 Body DAL & Byul (natural) ¥ 2,200, MB-005 Body Pullip (natural) ¥ 2,400, MB-008 Body Taeyang (fair) ¥ 2,700 &  MB-007 Body Isul (natural) ¥ 2,400.

A large number of vendors will also be at this event including such doll artisans as Milk Revo as seen below, this is just a small sampling of some of the vendors/ware that will be available at the event you can check out the whole list of vendors and their various wares here.

Special Coupon-Boost weekend!

From now until until 11:59 PM PST Sunday (4/7/2019) we have boosted the value of our currently coupon codes by an additional 50%

Few Caveats-
1) Coupon code only applies to the specified dolls.
2) 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.
3) We reserve the right to limit quantities!
4) 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.

Although this is a really good deal, I will be abstaining as I basically already own everything I want but this is a really good opportunity to save some money on your desired doll so don’t miss out!

If you have to abstain from the offer yourself and are a bit bummed out about it, remember that though the coupons are boosted this weekend, the codes themselves will still save you money on a future order just not as much money as this weekend.

Pullip Yuhwa

Long time, no write my attention has unfortunately pulled me in other directions lately so I have not had much of an opportunity to focus on the dolls. It’s not that I’ve lost interest in the dolls, I just don’t have all that much free time to focus on them anymore somehow I even missed mentioning the announcement of Pullip Yuhwa here.

Pullip Yuhwa was initially announced for an April release in Japan but was shortly thereafter delayed to a May release.  She has a MSRP of 20,000 yen.

I love her celestial robes and her almost ethereal vibe as well as her kind of dusty rose color scheme but I’m not quite sure about the hairstyle, while I know it a traditional style I wish they had gone another way with it.
Yuhwa has a very unique face up, her lips are accentuated with a very distinctively shaped paint application. It always amazes me how much Pullip’s face can appear to change with the right face up.

I apologize for this post kind of being on the short side but somehow I don’t really have a lot to say about her, she’s pretty but there have been a lot of more formal or fancy Pullips so far this year I find myself craving a doll with a bit more casual style at the moment.

Pullip Yuhwa is available for preorder via Pullipstyle.

Pullip Vocaloid Miku Yokohama Doll Museum Exclusive Version available via Groove Rakuten

Groove recently announced via their blog that a small number of the Yokohama Doll Museum Pullip Miku Exclusive Version would be available for preorder via the official Groove store here. This version of Pullip Miku was created exclusively for Yokohama Doll House’s Hatsune Miku Figure Exhibition and was previously only available for purchase via their giftshop during the event which concluded at the end of January.
The design for the Pullip is based on an illustration done for the event by Fujinoki Tomoko and naoto. This doll is a limited edition with only 250 dolls having been produced and has a MSRP of 22000 yen which is about $198.45 as of this writing.
I really loved the nautically themed design of the Yokohama Doll Museum Miku so I am estatic that she will be offered via Groove’s shop even if the numbers are limited especially since the eBay prices on this one were already getting pretty terrifying. I can’t wait to see owner photos of her!
