It's been a while.

Hello readers. I know it's been a while since i've posted but i've not really been feeling up to taking pictures lately. During Christmas break from school i'm sure I will take tons of pictures of my dolls, and of course, any new dolls I get. I do have many more dolls in my collection to take pictures of, I just wanted to get the high-end ones done with first. The rest of my dolls are inexpensive, but still awesome!

French Kitty!

This is a French Kitty by Madame Alexander. I will be getting more of these eventually. I love them! This one is called Pair-A-Dice, so I guess she's supposed to be like Las Vegas-y or somethin. They're pretty decently priced too ($25).





Alex by Madame Alexander

I'm not too fond of Alex dolls, I must admit. But I saw this gorgeous doll at Tuesday Morning for a splendid price ($3o instead of $120) and just had to get her. She has a great outfit, cute acessories, nice hair and face, and she actually has some joints! This girl is called 'Cocktail Chic Sienna Evans'.

Blythe-Mademoiselle Rosebud

Blythes have a long, interesting history.

This a neo-blythe by Takara, called Mademoiselle Rosebud. She has light customization done to her. Here she is in her original outfit.

If you read the above link fully you will know that blythes, not unlike Pullips, have an eye mechanism. They have a pullstring coming out of their heads which allows you to change the color and position of their eyes.

Pullips and Dal

What are Pullips you ask? Why, they are one of the greatest dolls ever! They are made by a Japanese company called Jun Planning, cost anywhere between $70-$700 (without S+H), they have jointed bodies that fit well into Barbie Fashion Fever clothes (type 3 does at least, I only have type 3 bodies Pullips) and have an eye mechanism that allows them to move their eyes from right to left and blink. Most of them are wigged which means you can pull their hair off and put new hair on!!! I have 3 pullips: RIDa, Papin and Brand New Purezza. I got most off ebay and one from Pullip Style. I bought Brand New Purezza nude because I wasn't too fond of her outfit. Mine were mostly in the cheap end of the price spectrum ($100 including S+H). I know most people reading this think it's an insane amount of money, but you must not have heard of BJDs (Ball jointed dolls). I will be doing a post about them soon enough and you'll see how expensive they are. Moving on, most pullips are pretty well-priced (to my knowledge), and only the rare ones cost upwards of $200. They come with outfits, accessories, a stand, and a collectible card.

First, a group photo, then, individual pics:

The first Pullip I ever got was a RIDa. I have been deliberating a while but I now think her name is Rhonda. Here she is, in the awesome outfit she came with:

The next two Pullips I got around the same time (Christmas 2006). The first one is Brand New Purezza, named Julius (from Orange Julius :)) wearing an outfit consisting of clothes I found at a Goodwill, so unfortunately I have no idea what they are. Her shoes and bracelet do come from my Papin's outfit, and I know her purse is Licca.

Last is Papin, she's my favorite (don't tell the others!) She is just gorgeous, the photos do her no justice, she is absolutely stunning in real life! Her name is Candy. She's wearing a barbie fashion fever outfit.

Now, Pullip's got a boyfriend, and he's got a little sister. Her name is Dal. They are basically like smaller Pullips. They do not have the blinking eyes, but they do move from side to side. Their bodies are also slightly more poseable than Pullips. This one is wearing a Bratz outfit. She is a Hina Ichigo named Whitney.

Top Model Barbie

Hey. Top Model Barbies are awesome. For rizzle. Anyways, I just got Nikki and Barbie today, I already had Summer. Here are their photos.

First we have Summer. She's got great hair, lovely color, with cool ringlets. Her face is really nice, sorta reminds me of the Silkstone barbies. Her outfit is awesome. She came with soo much great stuff, and she was only $15! My favorite part of the stuff would have to be the little portfolio they come with (you know, like the ones real models carry their photos in). It shows a picture of all the stuff they come with, then the other pages show outfits you can make using the stuff you get. Her boots are pretty butt kicking too. (All of their shoes are). Here's her pic:



Next is Nikki. She's definitely my fave. Her hair is frigging awesome and her clothes are really high quality and detailed (i think it's because she came out after the initial 3, that is, Barbie, Teresa and Summer.) She definitely is the prettiest and has the best face, in my humble opinion.



Last but not least is Barbie. Not sure if you can really see it in the picture (I didn't even notice til I got her out of the box) but she has black highlights in the back of her hair. Awesome. Her hair is really pretty but slightly hard to keep flat.



Here's some group shots:
