With so many crazy doll people ripping apart and customizing perfectly good dolls, JPGroove decided to release kits called “Make It Own” which let folks customize dolls from scratch.
I bought two Make It Own kits from PullipStyle.com - a gray-toned one and a pale-toned one.
Scary stuff. What you get in the kit are basic parts that you paint, varnish, and finish yourself. Even the eyes! I was totally intimidated…
What I used:
- Mr. Super Clear (the mack daddy of all finishers)
- Watercolor pencils
- Acrylic paint
- Glitter Glue
- Super glue
There’s a lot of waiting involved because things need to dry, but it was a ton of fun! The gray doll isn’t quite done yet – she’s going to be a Version 2.0 of Pris from Blade Runner.
Not too shabby for the first time out the gate, right?
Two things I love – Muppets and McDonalds. In 1988, McDonalds released a series of awesome Fraggle Rock toys with their Happy Meals. You bet I ate a lot of McNuggets to get the set!
I dug these out of a bin the other day and thought I’d share. Obviously my fave is Wembley and Boober in the pickle.
Throwback from the past! Here’s the commercial promoting the toys:
Groove is woefully lacking on producing redheaded Pullip Dolls, which is why I had to have Pullip Hannah! Hannah is a collaboration doll with a “sweet character brand” in Japan called SunaUna. You can even buy a real-life sized outfit to look like your doll! If you’re into that, of course…
Now I know it’s not exactly hip to dress like your doll, but how chic is this girl? Those tights are fierce.
Here’s my YouTube review of Hannah:
Anyone who’s interested in customizing Pullip Dolls knows it’s not easy finding affordable dolls to potentially destroy. Between super glue, blunt objects, and an Exacto knife, I’ve done some real damage as a newbie.
Pullip Peter Pan is a great starter doll for collectors who don’t know what faceup is. She’s usually available on Amazon at a very affordable price, so I bought 2! Here are some pics of the original doll as well as some re-wigging and re-chipping.
I still can’t believe that this is the same doll!
I picked these girls up on Amazon Prime the second they were available! After exhausting variations of Apple and Raven, it was exciting to see different dolls released in the line.
One of the things that draws me to this doll line from Mattel is the fun fairy tale element. The O’Hair girls are Rapunzel’s daughters, but since there are two of them and only one destiny, it means Poppy – the Rebel – gets to choose her future.
Deep stuff. Recommended ages: 5 and up.
Thanks to the awesomely warm welcome I’ve received on YouTube for my clumsy Pullip doll reviews, I’ve decided to do my very first giveaway! See below for details on how to enter:
Well hello there, foxy lady.
I decided to get Kuhn because I loved how different she was from other Pullip dolls. First of all, that outfit is slamming. Her hair is like a modern-day Dorothy Hamill and she’s rocking a belly tattoo.
You heard me. A belly tattoo.
Here are a few photos. How about those eyelids? Groove really outdid themselves on this one. the only downside is that she’s covered in plastic, I’m assuming because her stock stains her skin.
