Photo of the Week – week 46


This week’s photo of the week is made by the lovely Kalea-chan! Her name is Louve and she is a full custom MIO tan made by Kalea-chan herself. Louve’s eyelashes are stunning and we love the touch of mint green on her eyelids, which matches her eyes very well. And don’t you just love those dark red lips?

Pullip Optical Alice, Dal Dana and Isul Caros

It’s that time of the month again: Groove has announced new dolls! These are the first dolls announced for 2017!

Optical Alice

opticalaliceFirst up we have Pullip Optical Alice. That’s right, a new Alice series! This Alice features striking red, white and black tones with dazzling patterns on her apron and dress. Her outfit is quite similar to other Alice dresses, style-wise, but the colors and pattern are striking. She has a white wig and sparkling eyes! We’re not quite sure if we’re all that exited about yet another Alice series, but Alice seems a firm part of the Pullip world.

Dal Dana

danaThe next two dolls, Dana and Caros, are a set inspired by the Princess and the Frog fairy tale. We’re so happy to see Groove releasing more dolls inspired by fairy tales, just like Hansel & Gretel earlier this year.

Dana is the lovely princess and she is wearing just the most stunning dress. With off-white, green and gold tones it is absolutely gorgeous and very detailed with a lot of bows and lace. Her faceup is very sweet and her blue eyes make this Dal look more innocent than usual.

Isul Caros

carosIsul Caros is the prince who got turned into a frog. This is done quite well in his outfit: he is wearing a very princely suit with bloomers and a cape, but also has gloves and a hat that resemble a frog. His outfit is just as detailed as Dana’s, but has slightly darker colors. You can remove the frog pieces but also the top part of his outfit separately so he can wear his blouse loose as well.

Dana and Caros match each other very well and are a lovely set indeed.

Are you planning on getting any of the new dolls?

New releases December 2016: Pullip Katrina and Taeyang ReonHARDT

It’s that time of the month again: new doll announcements! While Groove has not officially announced them yet, both dolls are already available on

Pullip Katrina

p193detailLet’s start with the Pullip. Pullip Katrina is a classy girl! With her large hat and fur coat, she is wearing a very stylish outfit. Underneath her coat she’s wearing a long purple gown, which of course can be worn seperately. Her long dark blonde hair really stands out. Her faceup and eyechips remind us of some older dolls from the Type 3 era, which is a nice break with the more cute girls we’ve seen the past few years. It also looks like her skin tone is tan, a color not seen on regular releases often.

Pullip Katrina looks more mature than most other Pullip releases, thank to her outfit and faceup. She’s really quite different from what we have seen so far. We just really hope the coat is made from fake fur, as Groove has been doing so well with not using real fur for years now.

Taeyang ReonHARDT

t259detailWell, that’s one funky name for sure and for someother reason it reminds us of Taeyangfold. Taeyang ReonHARDT is a companion to Katrina and like her, he is dressed very stylishly. He is wearing a brown suit with stripes, giving him a very mature look. Underneath his suit he wears a dark brown gilet with a flower pattern on the fabric. He is wearing a light blue shirt, but it is a bit hard to tell from the photos if this can be worn seperately from the gilet. It probably can, but we can’t tell for sure.

He also has a more traditional faceup with very dark eyes and red lips. His grey wig is styled in a traditional men’s hairdo, completing his overall look. It’s good to see a Taeyang that is wearing a more normal outfit, compared to the steampunk and fantasy designs we’ve seen the past few years.
