My Pullips


I have been collecting Pullips for the last 5 years. I'm basically interested in Lolita fashion brand Pullips. The photo above shows all my Pullips displayed above my fireplace. The three beautiful prints in the background are from different ETSY artists.

Pullip is a collectible fashion doll created by Cheonsang Cheonha of South Korea in 2003. Pullip has an oversized head on a jointed plastic body, with eyes that can change positions and wink. Pullip was first marketed by Jun Planning of Japan, but since early 2009, it has been marketed by Groove of Korea. Pullip (풀잎) means 'blade of grass/leaf' in Korean. Since the release of the original female doll, other lines of dolls have been added.

DAL"Clair" is dressed in the extremely popular Elda Series. She looks just like a pretty French doll with soft barrel curls and deep, mysterious eyes.  Claire is a recreation of the original embroidery design and print. Note the little Violin Bag and the tiny scallops to her Heart Scallop Boots!

Pullip "Tiphona" is dressed in the extremely popular Pompadour Series. 


Bonita is wearing a beautiful and breathtaking lavender and black punk Goth Lolita style dress that is layered with black lace and tiny black flowers throughout. Around her neck is a snow-white pearl-style necklace. Covering her hands and lower arms, is a pair of matching purple arm warmers which have tiny black bows on them. Dangling from her arms is a charming matching purse. It too is styled in lavender and black lace. The tiny bag really helps complete her overall outfit. On her legs she is wearing black fishnet stockings and on her feet are a pair of adorable purple heels. 


Dark & brilliant. The harmony of light and dark that I love. Dozing off, listening to the sound of rain falling in the night... Feel like so."


Sakura has big blue/grey eyes, a curly blonde wig and looks exceptionally adorable with a big pink bow  in her hair. She is wearing a party ready light pink dress, gloves, a white caplet, pink shoes and a coordinating pink purse.




This elegant Pullip Dal Joujou doll perfectly portrays Angelic Pretty s charming designs. Joujou is wearing an outfit from Dreamy Dollhouse which features pastel pink and peppermint green. Adorable large pigtails in a bun and pink cheeks. Her large bunny bag is a statement piece.

Angelic Pretty Sucre is wearing a Sugary Carnival sleeveless dress thats adorned with bows and lavender lace, a matching bow headband and stocking. Pink lace-up shoes, a petticoat and a magical pony purse. 


Angelic Pretty recreation of Star Night Theatre. A white long sleeved blouse with a red printed dress thats adorned with bows and red tulle, a red top hat with gold trim, feathers and dotted tulle. A matching choker, checkered knee stockings, red heeled shoes and petticoat.


While "Alice" is NOT a Lolita Brand Pullip I find her adorable anyway!

Lucy Liu - Favorite Gown at the Golden Globes

I love florals. So when I saw  Lucy Liu, in a Carolina Herrera ball gown with splashy overscaled flowers I was thrilled and amazed. Everything else just looked so "common" in comparison.  Now, where can I go buy this gown?

Miss PTG of 2013

I got quite a surprise a week or so ago. I was elected "Miss PTG of 2013".  PTG is an online group with thousands of members. I had won a Monthly contest last June which made me a candidate for PTG of the Year. The photo was taken at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens last Spring.
