Doll Family Group Photo

It has been since last December that I have taken a group photo of all of my dolls, thus a new one was long over due as a few fresh faces have arrived. I thought I could toss this all together on Wednesday but I lost the light of the day (ugh, shortening days!) and thus had to wait till Thursday’s fog lifted to actually get the job done.

I’m not sure how I’m going to handle getting this done when I have a few taller guys, maybe split BJD and fashion dolls into separate photo’s? Definitely going to have to think this one through when December rolls around and I’ll probably want to do this again.


Arrival: Dal Fiori

I first saw little Fiori at a doll meet last December and was really enamored with her, but didn’t know her make name. Ever since then I have been keeping an eye out for her as a full set, I adore her outfit and especially her small doll.

Monday I actually stumbled upon her brand new in the box and the rest is, as they say, history.

And now for some photo’s of my new little cutie, she is SUCH a camera bug! I haven’t decided on a name for her quiet yet. She arrived so fast I haven’t quiet came to a decision on it.

Pullip & Isul Halloween 2011 Release?

I stumbled upon these pictures today of both a Pullip and Isul dressed to the MAX in Halloween themed garments. I’m amazed at how suddenly Isul is getting loads of releases.

Both of these are supposed to be late September releases and will retail for 13,000 yen.

First up is Pullip Banshee.
I adore her eyes and makeup, she really makes me want to find a little Harry Potter school uniform for her with that pointy hat! XD Not really all that crazy about her stock clothes though personally.

Pullip collaboration with Baby, the Stars Shine Bright

I have to start this out by saying, “It’s about time!” There have been collaborations with Innocent World and on going one’s with Angelic Pretty and I have always wondered when Baby, the Stars Shine Bright was going to jump on the wagon and get to making some tiny clothes for Pullip girls and boys.

From what I can tell these are December 2011 release.

Let me introduce to you at last…Pullip Nerura and Isul Johan!

I found some larger pictures, hurray! 😀

Keiko in black Sugary Carnival

My Sugary Carnival set arrived a few days ago but I just got around to taking some photo’s today. Keiko is my only Angelic Pretty girl, so she get’s the honor of wearing this new set. One of these days I really do want the lavender version of this print too. :3

On Reserve: Azone – Sahra Summer Melody

I took a deep breath last Sunday and made a reserve order for my first Azone doll. She is Sahras a la mode Sahra / Summer Melody release. There are actaully two Summer Melody versions, this one and another with slightly darker straight blonde hair. The second version was released exclusively on Azone’s webshop, so I would have had to use a shopping service to aquire her. Since this is my first Azone I really didn’t want to go all nuts for the more limited version. I like this one with the fluffy hair just fine, I think she’s lovely. ^_^

She will be including the straw hat, cardigan, dress, shorts, sandals and pochette.
Late August release.

Pullip x Dal Madoka Magica Release Photo’s

Well the wait wasn’t long, thankfully Groove has already released it’s production photo’s of the highly anticipated Madoka Magica girls!

If I am reading the translations right each girl will come with both her school uniform and her transitional outfit! Unfortunately they don’t each come with a mini Kyubey like the Azone girls do, but there is a strange mention of him. The direct to english translation reads:

Furthermore, this August 31 (Wednesday) before you book to everyone who,
Get not only here, “Muffler Kabei Kyuu Pullip special size” for free!
※ Muffler Kabei picture currently in production Kyuu, please wait a little longer

So maybe he is included with Japan shop pre-orders?? But having him as a muffler sounds really bizarre to me! Though I guess if you severely hate his character then having his pelt used as a garment might make you really happy. XD

All of the girls look to be November 2011 releases.
Release Price: 13,650 yen

MamaChapp Mini’s – The next addiction

Yes I’m quiet talkative today, I’ve been meaning to get all of these posts written up so I’m just pouring them all out now that I have time. XD

Yet another doll I’ve been meaning to babble on about, MamaChapp’s! But now not only are these cute puffy cheeked girls hard to get, but they are also going to come out in mini’s! Now how can one not fall in love with these?

I really can’t decide which I like more…Azone or Mamachapp. Both have their redeeming qualities but I only have so much shelf room! At this rate I will have to start moving dolls into the family room at some point. Wait, maybe this isn’t such a bad idea after all? XD
