Helter Skelter Pullip Ririko

I just finished reading the Helter Skelter manga last night, though I am not the biggest fan of the art style I thoroughly enjoyed the story even if it’s slightly disturbing. A film based on the manga came out in theaters over the summer and is being released on dvd/blu-ray later this month- you can view the trailer here . Pullip released a LE500 special collaboration doll of the main character Ririko in her iconic red dress that she wears during the film.
I bought Ririko from PullipDollDreams , it was my first time ordering from them though I had been aware of them for a while now. They happened to be the only US store with Ririko in stock when I was ready to order, I’m not exactly known for my patience so I decided to give them a shot and order from them. I was very impressed with the transaction Ririko was shipped out that day and was packaged very well (she even came wrapped in a bow) though Pullipstyle and Popfuzz will remain my primary pullip purveyors  I would also recommend PDD  without hesitation and will more than likely shop there myself again.

Ririko’s stock is really nice quality, one of the few collaboration models where I felt like the extra cost was truly merited. My only complaint about her stock is that she has the cheapest looking, most generic Barbie shoes ever; they look like they belong on a $1 store knock-off Barbie rather than a doll that was nearly $150.
Ririko face up
I absolutely love her dramatic face up, particularly her eye make up. Please ignore the random dot by her right eye, it is not a flaw on her face up but rather something on my lens I didn’t notice until it was too late.
The dress is wonderfully constructed and absolutely gorgeous but holy hell the dress makes Ririko take up a ton of shelf space.  I’m personally only displaying her in the miniskirt and only breaking the train part of her dress out for photos as I am so tight on display space at this point.
Though her character may be rather despicable Ririko transformed into a doll beautifully.
I fear Ririko may have ended up looking a bit too sweet in my photos.
I disliked her shoes so much, I went through great pains to try and exclude them from my photos of her.
