I give huge praise to Groove Inc for owning up to their misjudgment of supplying Dal Lyla with a pointy white hooded cape.
They recently made a statement on their blog, apologizing for their oversight in not carefully analyzing the potential reaction fans would have.
It appears as if Lyla Dal will not arrive with her ghost cloak as originally planned.
It was never Groove Inc's intent to offend anyone.
They miscalculated, corrected, and are moving forward.
Hopefully fans of Pullip will appreciate the apology and will continue to support Groove Inc and Pullip!
