When I first received Meiko from Groove’s Sample Sale, I jokingly called her “Pullip Peter Pan’s glamorous cousin.” It’s true that Meiko does look a bit like Peter Pan, but it’s mostly the hair.
Sample Sale dolls are an interesting lot. On one hand, you can obtain them for a very reasonable price. On the other, these dolls have been displayed for a long time in questionable climates and circumstances. That means dry wigs, missing or broken parts, and for Meiko, horrible black staining on her arms, body, and feet.
Based on the condition of her body and wig, I decided to give her a little makeover. An Obitsu, new wig, and new eyechips later, here she is! I also touched up her faceup to give her a bit more color. Thanks mom for the outfit, too!
