J-dolls are made by Groove (the same company that makes Pullip) and they are dolls that wear fashions inspired by different streets around the world. Unlike Pullip who has an over-sized head, J-doll has a normal sized head. J-doll and Pullip share the same type of body (neck peg is slightly different)- a comparison of Hestia, J-doll and Pullip can be seen- here.
J-doll deboxing, she came a stand, a purse and a bouquet of flowers. The shoes she is wearing a quite popular model for Groove dolls, several Pullips releases also came with these in different colors.
Vasterlanggatan’s inspiration was Västerbotten Long, a street in Sweden.
She is the absolute picture of elegance from her dress to her beautifully styled updo. The design of her dress reminds me of somewhat of calla lilies.
I absolutely love her face up, I would have done a face up shot of her but I was very concerned I would ruin her delicately styled hair if I tried to.
More pictures of her available on my flickr for interested parties- here. Since I was already looking at J-dolls I may have decided to buy Via Appia as well so hopefully I’ll be able to blog her in the not too distant future, still considering maybe one buying just one more…
