January 2014 will be a triple collaboration between Groove, BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT, and model Aoki Misako.
This upcoming doll named Pullip Aoki Misako, is based on the the well known lolita fashion model & Ambassador of Kawaii; Aoki Misako!
Go to eBay to order this cutie!
On October 23, 2013 I talked about this upcoming release and I’m glad to see actual promotional images of this doll, but my feelings are pretty much the same as they were back then (see text below).
Things I love:
- Pretty dress
- Additional nurse outfit (Aside from modeling, Aoki Misako is also a registered nurse)
- Hmm . . . honestly since I’m not too familiar with Aoki Misako or Midori Fukasawa, I’m not sure how I feel about this collection. For now “It Is What It Is”
- When I first saw these two dolls together (with no information before hand) I thought it was the same doll but wearing a different outfit with a different wig. There is no real difference between the Pullips other than their attire and the wigs
Price: ¥18,000 about $185.00
Limited Edition: Unknown
Is this latest release a great start to the 2014 year, and are you excited for this lovely girl? Leave a comment below! 🙂

We’ve been seeing quite a few collaboration dolls towards the end of the 2013 year.
Winter 2013 (date maybe 2014 according to BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT website) , Pullip and BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT collaborate to bring fans the Aoki Misako and Midori Fukasawa Pullip Dolls.
Back in Oct 3, 2013 Aoki Misako posted a twitter image of both dolls.
Official names for these darlings and release date are yet to be known, but I believe probably Dec 2013 since Groove already announced the Nov 2013 line up.
If you don’t already know, Aoki Misako is the Ambassador of Kawaii; The face of Cute around the world! 🙂
No really, I’m not kidding, she received this title in 2009 from the Ministry for Foreign affairs to help promote and spread all things cute and also to teach others the history of lolita fashion. You may have seen Aoki Misako in the Harajuku magazine KERA and modeling for well known lolita fashion such as BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT. She is also a registered nurse (Her doll will come with a nurse outfit)
Midori Fukasawa is a well known fashion model in Japan, she has been in countless magazines!
I’m so so on these dolls, I’ll wait to see the official images before I totally make up my mind.
