You can’t always get what you want. In this case, until very recently if you lived outside of Europe, you could not get your hands on a custom faceup by the very popular BJD faceup artist, Mikiyochii of MikiyochiiDolls.
As if she heard my whining from half a world away, the lovely Mikiyo decided to create full custom Pullip dolls that she would offer internationally on her Etsy shop. Happy dance!
Her name was Mireille and oh my goodness she was a brunette. I have no self control.
This doll took my breath away. The details on her face were so delicate and yet detailed to make her look as if she were a living breathing girl. (To doll people, that’s not creepy, I promise.) She had the sweetest expression.
Once Mireille joined the family, I thought I was done with Mikiyochii. But then she dropped Rose on us, and I went berserk. I actually set a timer on my phone for 15 minutes before she went on sale. You can see why I went crazy here:
Lastly, I fell in love with Marie, who I thought would be a great addition to a trio of girls. I don’t often collect three dolls from the same artist, but there is simply something magical about her dolls.
This is one of those times I wish Groove was searching for new artists. I know exactly who I would recommend! Follow Mikiyochiidolls on instagram.
