New J-Doll

I’m not usually the best fan of J-Doll. Some of them are nice, and can have nice concepts, but they really can’t compare to Momoko dolls in my eye. But today I discovered this new one announced by Groove, and I have to say I find her really cute.

She’s named Robson Street. I don’t know which country it comes from, and her outfit doesn’t really give me any clue.  But I really like her style! I like the different pieces of her outfit, the layered look and the bright colors. It gives her some personnality. Plus I tend to like JP/Groove’s wavy hair.

I don’t know when she’s supposed to be released exactly, I lost track of J-Doll’s releases and they didn’t tell it in the blog announcement.

I didn’t know this maker, but I found those doll really funny and kind of cute with their gigantic head and innocent face. It seems they’re on an Obitsu 23cm body. I think maybe a less skinny body would look better on them. Maybe a custom body, or a Pure Neemo one?

They have two types of faces: ones with painted eyes and mouth, and ones with 3D eyes and mouth (I don’t know how to describe them).

Unoa Light

They’ve been showing prototypes of those for quite some time at events… Sekiguchi is now finaly releasing the Little Red Riding Hood & Wolf Unoa Light dolls! Preorders started on February 13 on their official webshop. The dolls should be out mid-March.

I like that the girl doesn’t have blond hair. All previous releases except one had blond hair! And it’s really not the color I find best for her. My favourite Fluorite so far is the only brunette, the 2007 Christmas doll. I found that her dark hair contrasted with her make-up and gave her a stronger personality. One could think, judging from the picture above, that she had a kind of short haircut, like a bob. But actually she has long straight hair :

If I would to get her (which I won’t), I think I’d try to cut her hair to give her a bob. It seems that it would look nice on her. I’m not extremely fond of her outfit, but I like the shirt. White shirts are basic items, and this one is pretty. Here is a close-up view of the Wolf:

Each doll is at 16,800 yens. All the pics I show here are from Sekiguchi’s official shop.

First, I have to say that I don’t collect Barbie dolls. But of course as everyone I know them, and I loved to play with those I had as a child. Now that I’m grown up and know other dolls I’m not very fond of Barbie anymore. But I still like to look at the new releases from time to time. The other day I was browsing a japanese webshop and I stuppled upon a few dolls that I like. I thought I’d share them with you here.

Queen of hearts


The Flinstones dolls. Aren’t they faces funny? I like them. ^^

The Wicked Witch of the West

What do you think? I like them, they’re different from regular Barbie dolls. They have more interesting faces to me. The Wicked Witch especially (on this picture anyway, I haven’t seen her for real) has a very elegant face.

And there are many more dolls whose outfits I like. If most of the time I don’t like the whole dolls (or don’t like them enough to really care about them), I’m very fond of their outfits. I have to recognize they can really create wonderful dresses and outfits for their collector dolls.

I’m going to share one more Barbie picture before I go to bed. I’m not very fond of the doll’s face, but I really like her clothes. Not because they’re stunning, but because they are inspired by something I like: Beatrix Potter’s work.

Plus I love that kind of skirts. ^^

mame Momoko

“mame Momoko” means “miniature Momoko”. I totally agree with you: they don’t look like Momoko. At all. Even not a simplified one. But somehow I got used to them and like them. I think they’re cute in their own way. Mine (I have several) are usually displayed on my bookshelf and don’t move much (I never change their clothes). I decided it was time to give them their own moment of fame. So this little one was choosen to embody an angel of winter for this week’s doll picture.
