Sunsparkle, your taste in Pullips is very similar to mine! Kaela, Celsiy and Akemi are such strong designs. Especially Kaela with her backstory as a love detective. She is spying on people to see if they cheat! My dream profession :lol:
I also love shorthaired girls. Probably because I am one, ha! But I just find the super long hair on Pullips to be hard to take care of and I'm always afraid of curls because I don't want to destroy them.

I love my Peter a lot. Her nude make-up and peach colored eyelids are just so pleasant. Very feminine but not too sparkly-girly as some other dolls. I think the doll was clearanced a lot because Peter Pan is not exactly a figure that is popular in the doll market. Tinkerbell Dal and Tigerlilly Byul seemed to sell much better.

@Sunsparkle Peter Pan really is a beauty.  I you how you dressed her.  I found one at Tuesday Morning years ago and was smitten.  Her eyes are so pretty!  She is the one I blame for dragging me into Pullips.  Before then, I didn't see the appeal.

@Zapper I agree, long hair and curls are intimidating.  I usually avoid curls and fancy up-dos.  I tell myself that if I do run into problems, I can always replace the wig.  But that's a lot of money to throw around.

I'm really excited about the new "Girlism" doll.  What is that? lol.  But I adore her blonde bob and face-up.  Pullip Style   The dress is pretty too but I kind of groan inside about how to keep it dust free.

I have some pullips!

I can't post pictures quite frankly because I haven't figured it out yet lol. But I have Cornice and Raphia (my first two), Batgirl and Catwoman, Asuka and Rei, Assa, Grell, Ala, Hello Kitty, Principessa, Regen Fanatica, Moon, Nero, and Lunatic Queen out of the box, I have a Rozen Maiden whos name escapes me (black dress, white hair) and Princess Serena from Sailor Moon still in the box. They are less in the box for MIB sake and more because I know I'll be moving and they will be safer in their boxes. Makes for an interesting display.

I have some Pullips too!

They are lovely, but now I wish I wouldnt have bought so many (they take up so much room!!!).  I kinda feel like they were a bad investment since they were so costly to begin with and the value hardly climbs much.  I didnt purchase them mainly as investment but hoped value would increase.  Also, I would like to purchase some of the newer dolls Im currently in love with (lol :biggrin:), but I just cant see myself spending so much right now and the price just keeps increasing...  Id like to sell some of the doll from my collection and buy some newer dolls, but it would probably be hard to sell :|

My favorite doll I have: Romantic Alice, and my most valued doll: Chelsea

I've been wanting to get into pullip for a while now and I am THIS close to buying Tiphona.

recently have spent a couple hours looking at all the different dolls, focusing on what faceup I like the most (since I'd just change her clothes anyway tbh). then I looked them up on flickr to see what they look like with different eyes/wigs, and Tiphona blew the others out of the water for me. I don't like her outfit much and am neutral on her hair (I'll likely leave it for quite a while before dabbling with replacement wigs lol) but omg her faceup!! <3__<3 she just seems like a really good First Doll. she's also within a reasonable price range for me. I keep thinking, why am I about to buy this doll when I could buy two grail ponies for the same price??

btw is her name pronounced "tai" or "tee" (or a short i like in "bit"?) -phona, anyone know?

I was thinking of deboxing my fantastic Alice and adding a little makeup with her existing makeup with watercolor pencils.  I don't think I'm artistic enough and don't feel confident enough to completely remove her existing face.

I've never attempted this.  My question: do I need to set her makeup with a spray afterwards?  I'm thinking I probably do... if so what do I use to set her new face?  Also, how much would I spray?  Or do I need to completely remove her face before doing any kind of makeup?

Btw, loving th doll pics:-)  Also im looking to purchase Princess Serenity or Wedding SM, since they look so similar, which would you all recommend?  Or do i really need 2 SM dolls in white dresses bc they both look beautifully different?

Thank you.

I collect pullips also due to pony friend getting me into them, I never thought I would collect dolls but have done for a few years now and think they are just as great as when I first started collecting them

I had to look her up.  LOVE her.  That face-up is beautiful.

Groove did a fantastic job replicating her.  She's not my cup of tea, but I do think they did well.
If I ever have any extra fun money I really want kayano!

The replica is amazing but I disliked this design for being too busy and similar to an older release. I am just not into that type of Pullip, especially with the horrendous price point.

Anybody notice the top three dolls in that contest all looked samey? The color scheme, business, hair color and lolita inspo was evident in all three.
I am a tad disappointed. I mean,sure, the people have spoken. The majority wanted that type of doll.
But some of the entries looked so unique for Pullip. Even with the same color scheme, the fairy one couldn't win.
