CCS Noble Punk

This doll is absolutely gorgeous. I totally fall in love with her each time I see her for real. She has a very strong character that I think few have. Most Momoko are beautiful. But this one really is special.

It’s the third anniversary event for Odeco-chan & Nikki. They organize such an event each year. This time it’s held at Parco (Shibuya, Tokyo) until April 1st, for those who are in Tokyo and are interested. It’s a cute little event.

I’m going to describe quickly what was there, you can find all the pictures on Flickr.

This is the birthday cake they made that displays all the releases so far. It’s a pièce montée, the dolls standing up at the border of each floor. It’s nice to see them all together!

Two dolls whose outfits were made by Kanihoru for a photoshoot published in Spoon magazine. The issue is about forest, so those are “forest girls”. They wear natural clothes and are in a nice forest display. I really like their clothes!

A second book about Odeco-chan & Nikki is about to be released. It’s a illustration book, as good for children as it is for Deconiki fans. ^^ It’s really cute, and talk about how they met and got friends. The event exhibits some of the drawings in bigger size and the real dolls based on the characters.

There’s having an early sale of the book at the event. When you buy it there you get a folded card with a drawing and a picture of the dolls and the pattern of their dress.

A few custom dolls made for an earlier event and exhibited again here.

They have past releases of Odeco-chan & Nikki redressed in various clothes from stock outfits, outfit sets and CCS clothing. Some of them are wearing shoes from two new shoe sets that are going to be released next month (and presold here at the event). Il really like the colors of those new sets (the types of shoes are the same, only the colors change). You can see the sets here and here.

Impressive, isn’t it? This is a wall of one of kind Odeco-chan and Nikki. There are 150 dolls of each, and all are different. Variations for Odeco are: skin color (fair, normal, tan), hair cut (bob or longer curly hair), hair color (a mix of different colors) and the eyes. Variations for Nikki are: the eyes and the shape and color of her patches (always two different colors, the base being white). And they have different kinds of dresses. All are based on the under-dress/slip from the Dreambox dolls, but in different colors: plain blue, pink or mint green, or two kinds of paid. They all are very lovely, it’s very difficult to pick a favourite! They are sold via a lottery. You can choose up to three of each (so six in total) until March 25 (tomorrow). They will announce the winners later, who will then be able to buy them. They’re at 10,500 yens each. I tried to take pictures of lots of different kinds so you could have a good idea of what they created, the pictures are on Flickr.

A great thing was that they are showing future releases. Here are the next Odeco-chan & Nikki dolls, “Aozora no Odeco-chan & Nikki” (“blue sky”):

They have the same characteristics as the dolls sold at the anniversary events the previous years, even though they’re not sold at the anniversary event. They’re planned for May. I don’t like Odeco’s wig, but I like Nikki’s color. It’s very bright but I like it.
Here are the next key-chain dolls to be released:

They also had Odeco & Nikki fabric dolls, and a Post-Pet plush, but I’m not sure whether they will release them or not. And about key-chains, they are selling a new type at the event, which looks like the one of a kind dolls. They’re really cute! I didn’t take a picture at the event, so here is one taken at home:

They also had the first Odeco & Nikki book, so finally I was able to look at it. It’s very cute, much more than I thought! It tells small stories through drawings, like a mini-comic strip. It the same style as in the latest cards that come with the dolls. After each story you have a picture of the related dolls, and at the end of the book you can find the patterns of the outfits. I’m totally adding it to my wishlist for later!

And as we speak about products for sale, I have a few items from the event available for sale. They’re not sold anywhere else for now, it’s your chance! Here they are:
– one copy of the new book with its limited card
– one of each of the new shoes set
– one of each of the new key-chain
