NO! It’s a pose-able 1/4th scale figure with a wig and clothing…FINE it’s a doll I admit it! My poor boyfriend isn’t pleased with this new collectible of mine. Loads of manga? Fine! Rows of flamboyant figures? Ok! But now…dolls? Aw man… My poor boy toy has to put up with my hobbies that just seem to get weirder and weirder. He happens to think all dolls are disturbing and these dolls (Pullips) are especially creepy to him. I realize he isn’t in the minority in thinking these dolls look creepy either. But I can’t help it, to me she is soooooooo pretty! *Girlie Squeal* It could just be that I was raised surrounded by dolls that they don’t disturb me. My mom collected some porcelain dolls that she kept in my room. Although at night there was this one lady doll that I swore would turn and look at me, I had my mom put that one in her room.
This Pullip is Alte and she was released in April of 2007 and she is a collectible fashion doll that is a product of JUN Planning. One of the reasons I didn’t get any Pullips until now was because I always felt they were too expensive. But with sky rocketing figure prices lately (Alter Yoko, Good Smile Company Saber Lily…etc) their pricetag has really started to look reasonable. So here on out I’ll be cutting back on my figure spending every once in a while to substitute in a Pullip I like. Plus it’s kind of nice to be in a hobby (for once) that is dominated by females.
I picked Alte as my first Pullip because I love black and white polka dots, vintage dresses, brown hair, and big brown eyes. It also helped that she was the cheapest Pullip out there. But now that I have my first one I know I’ll be getting more! I’ve always thought that pose-able figures were ok but…I’ve never loved having so many posing options as much as I do now with Pullips. As fans of figures how do you guys feel about if your girlfriend/wife/love interest were really into these Pullips? Would that scare you away or do you think you’d better understand their fetish because you collect figures?
So here is the plan. If I promise to put more effort into better panty shots on my sexy lady figures…how about you guys humor me and my occasional Pullip post
