Pullip is turning the big 1-5!!!
How she manages to look young after all these years is a mystery, though I believe she drinks a special potion every full moon.
To celebrate this special occasion, Groove Inc is releasing the commemorative doll, 15th Anniversary Pullip Etoile.
The 15th anniversary theme is space and dreams and Pullip Etoile is the perfect representation, even her name goes along with the space theme.
Etoile is French for Star.
The print on her dress is a dreamy galaxy aurora borealis with the P initial sprinkled throughout.
Her long blond hair with a streak of purple makes her look like a beautiful ice princess.
And when she’s wrapped in her snowy white cape it instantly changes her sweet appearance into a dramatic look.
I would love to own a similar cape, though the only grand entrance I’ll be making while wearing the cape is in my living room to binge watch Aggretsuko on Netflix.
For Pullip’s 10th Anniversary in 2013, Groove Inc released Pullip Ally who also had platinum blonde hair and blue eyes.
I like to think Etoile is Ally, 5 years older or maybe even Ally’s older sister.
The crystal embellishment underneath her eyes are unique but I feel it takes away from the simplicity of the doll.
I wonder what they symbolize.
Hopefully, it can be removed for those who wish to.
