Hi again! Here is my newest Pullip dolls Street and Bouquet accompanied by Withered, who I have owned for years already. (She was actually a re-buy too.) Street I wanted to try, I could have always customized her if I didn’t like her, but I think she is better than I feared. The change of eyes definitely does it for me (she has yellow eyes normally), maybe adding/changing her eyeshadow (part of it is actually yellowing, she has very little of eyeshadow normally), but I don’t think she needs anything else. Maybe repair the eyeliner a bit, but these oldest Pullips were all handpainted, so the quality of the face up can be really poor. It isn’t bothering me as much I thought it could actually.
Oh, and her eyes… It was pain in the ass. Endless carving… The eyes normally have see-trough middle and a deep trail under the iris of the eyechip… So putting on new chips is not very bad. She did not have it, it was having pretty much straight line from the side to the middle part (pupil), very similar to blythe, except that there was about no trail on the side at all (blythe has small one). So i couldn’t pop out her eyes the normal way and carved forever to get the chips to fit her. They still don’t go as deep as I would like, but I got so fed up with it, I thought as long as it stays, it can be okay for now…
They were all made in 2003, and Street was one of the first 3 Pullips ever made, others being Wind and Moon. I currently own 5 type 1 bodied Pullips, all made on 2003, since the type 2 body was from 2004 onward. I have Squall (blank, needs face up) and customized Bouquet (she never had the face up, so this was the first time I actually saw a stock face up of Bouquet).
Bouquet I got, I was planning on getting another Withered to customize since I kinda don’t want to erase the current one I have. So when I saw this Bouquet for sale, I thought that she could make a perfect twin, who I could have the face up on (there is not really much to begin with, I could prolly just paint over her current one, it is all stock, she comes like this) instead. When I got them to compare, I knew my gut was right. She definitely does it, she even has longer hair and different side on her parting, the color being just slightly lighter than Withered’s.
Also the naming is kinda silly… My Withered, even the old one, since forever, has been Mugen Suru. I just got it in my head one day, and even tough Suru is also Finnish, her name wasn’t supposed to be so. So apparently one day I toyed with the word, thinking a name for the twin and… I got to Sugen Muru. I am too much into it, I find it very cute, Muru also being Finnish and meaning ”dear.” (Also a bit of something.) Since I usually call Mugen by that name, I found it funny that Muru would use the second name instead, if using just one of the names. Oh well… x3
I will have extra close ups on all of their make ups in the end of the post.
Lets start with a pic of all 3!
(The quality of this pic is not very good, but I didn’t take enough of them all together… ^^;;; )
And all the pics were taken in inside lighting, so…
