Many fans anxiously awaited Groove Inc’s 2016 release of Dal, finally the wait is over!
An elegant swan named Dal Deneb will glide into collectors’ homes on October 2016.
Gaining inspiration from the night sky, Dals name and various features of her outfit came from the star Deneb which is found in the constellation of Cygnus.
To celebrate Dal’s 10th Anniversary Groove Inc made Dal shine brightly by draping her in a graceful white gown.
Deneb looks so delicate and sweet.
Her swan theme reminds me of Pullip Pere Noel. They would make a beautiful ballet team.
Dal is known for her iconic grumpy face and while she still has her signature look, somehow the soft blush around her cheeks creates a softer and sweeter Dal.
At first Deneb’s eyes appear black but on closer inspection, they are actually deep deep blue.
The puffy girly gown is appealing but I’m not too sure how I feel about the tassels around the dress, they kind of remind me of those extravagant curtain tassels xD
The swan mask cutout is a nice element.
I wonder if Taeyang and Dal have plans to go out to a big fancy ball.
With minimal distraction from Pullip, hopefully Deneb will be able to spend some quality time with her big brother.
Where To Order
Release Date: October 2016

When I saw the pictures on Groove’s blog I was very surprised! And not in the wrong way. Generally I don’t like DAL pouty face but I don’t know if it’s because of the pictures or if the make-up was really well made but I have the sensation that she is shyly smiling. She is so cute! >.<
The swan theme used for her outfit also reminded me about Pullip Pere Noel! At such a point that I believed that she was another representation of the Swan Lake story XD But I like it anyway :3 She is a good compromise to me. I always wanted to buy Pullip Pere Noel but I couldn't because of her high price since she's sold out on the major websites…
Shyly smiling is a good word to describe this Dal.
It’s amazing how a little change in makeup can transform a doll!
Whoa, I didn’t realize how expensive Pullip Pere Noel was?!?
I have to agree with you, I think Dal Deneb would make a wonderful replacement for the Rare Pullip Pere Noel.
Thanks for leaving a comment on the 10th Anniversary Dal.
