Pullip Dolls

Okay I blame Suzi Blu for turning me onto these neat dolls from Japan. I am taking her Petite Dolls class and she was talking about looking at dolls and images for inspiration. Well she "suggested" using "Pullip" type dolls (and there are so many types, although I think the Pullip are my favorites). However be warned, these are not inexpensive little toys. While they are so much less expensive that the "Blythe" dolls ( I recall Tasha bought one, she must have sold a kidney). Those dolls cost the really big bucks, even on ebay. So after wrestling with all the choices, I managed to narrow down my choice to these two pretty babies. The first comes with 2 crows, and a mask that looks like a bird. I have to say she is in the number 1 spot for me, why? because I love all that black,.....and she has "birds", I collect birds. Yet the second doll is so very pretty and about 25% less. I wish I understood the pricing, it must be based on popularity, because I really want the "boy" doll, but well, he is a bit more. If you get a chance check out these lovelies at this site, just remember, it's not my fault if you fall in love, http://thevalleyofthedolls.com/ Here she is "Neo Noir" (I just think she is too cool, she comes with 2 crows also) Sort of Morticia does Phantom of the Opera, I love her long hair. This is "Ala" she is much prettier up close (although the boots are a real trip aren't they?). Sort of a "Angel of Vegas Show Girls" don't you think? So which one? Which one? As much as I love both of them I cannot afford two, and as it is, I will have to save for just the one. Of course by then I may have a new favorite, they have so many and have even more coming out (Yeah I got my eye on "Mir" also, now she is beautiful).

I prefer the black one because birds always carry our souls.

I don't even dare look at the site you mentioned.

Thanks for having me in your prayers.

Love Renee xoxo

I found a sweet little one on E-bay she goes for a lot less she is the Queen of Hearts & I am smitten. I know what you mean I would love a larger one but geesh! I like either of your choices trully.
