New Pullips Announced for October- New Versions of Favorite Ribbon & La Robe Vert Clair

Groove has recently announced a pair of new dolls due for release in October via their blog. Both of the new Pullips may look a bit familiar because they are recolored variants of last year’s surprise darlings La Robe Vert Clair and Favorite Ribbon.
P163_P164_mailLike last time, these dolls are the results of a triple collaboration between Groove, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and models Aoki Misako and Fukasawa Midori. Baby, the Stars Shine Bright  is a world famous lolita company, they made the outfits that the dolls wear which are more or less the same as last time’s except for the colors and the addition of an apron to Favorite Ribbon Chocolate Version’s outfit. Aoki Misako and Fukasawa Midori are both models here there are featured in a picture from BtSSB‘s blog when the original dolls inspired on them were announced.
Both dolls are priced at 21000 yen which is a little bit more expensive than the last time around. They do have a release date of October in Japan, which means that we will not get them here in the US until late November.

Aoki Misako × Favorite Ribbon Chocolate version
P164_01_mailI absolutely love and adore the new version of Favorite Ribbon, I think this is the first recolored release that I actively prefer over the original release. I think Favorite Ribbon Chocolate Version is absolute perfection, I’m normally not a fan of brown but I love the color palette on her and how well all the colors play off each other. I always felt like the red was very discordant with the rest of the outfit in the original release.
P164_02_mailThe apron is addition to this release, there was no apron on the original release. The new outfit looks pretty cute even with the apron, I wonder why they chose to include the apron this time? It makes me wonder if Favorite Ribbon will not come with a second outfit like the original did.
The apron is a cute addition!
P164_08_mailBack view of the dress, it’s even pretty darn cute from behind.
P164_06_mailI like that they changed the hairstyle this time, the color is really nice it’s a very rich honey blond.
P164_04_mailThe face up looks to be the same as the original’s but in a slightly different color scheme. I think the color scheme looks nice, it reminds me a bit of Tiphona’s face up with the coloring.

Fukasawa Midori × la robe vert Bleu royal Ver.
P163_01_mailI really loved the original La Robe Vert Clair because she had such a lovely color palette with the like sea foam green dress, I think in this case I prefer the original color scheme over the revised color scheme ^^;. I’m just not the biggest fan of that shade of blue, I guess.
P163_02_mailI do like the pale yellow ribbon details, it provides a striking bit of contrast to the rest of the outfit.
The outfit is very detailed, all the ruffles are almost overwhelming!

P163_06_mail The wig looks to be the same style but in a shade of pale blond.
P163_05_mailI love her face up and the colors they chose for it, it’s another case of Groove redoing the face up but in slightly different colors but it works for her.

I will be sure to update this once the dolls become available preorder via Pullipstyle/JPGroove. On a related note, Pullipstyle is taking preorders for a restocks due in September for the original versions of La Robe Vert Clair and Favorite Ribbon which served as an inspiration for the new girls.
