Groove Inc is making a mad dash towards the 2016 finish line with their reveal of the November 2016 lineup.
Fans only have 1 more month to look forward to before the 2016 Pullip series comes to an end.
Is it just me or has this been one of the quickest years yet? Where did 2016 go . . .?
Groove Inc & SILVER BUTTERFLY teamed up once again to bring you one sleek girl named Pullip Lupinus.
SILVER BUTTERFLY (SBS) is a skilled doll clothing designer from Japan who creates tailored outfits one would expect to see a human wear.
I love SILVER BUTTERFLY's aesthetic!
The outfits designed by SBS' always look modern & chic which causes the dolls to have a sophisticated quality about them.
A characteristic that some of SBS' custom dolls have are eyechips without pupils, hence way this release features this look.
Pullip Lupinus is the first official release to have geometric eyechips without pupils.
This feature is definitely a new spin to the usual Pullip eyes.
I must admit I'm not a fan of this look because it creeps me out a bit.
Lupinus looks stunning wearing the SBS design however I feel like the eyes are too much of a focal point for this particular doll.
But who knows I may warm up to the look when owners begin photographing this beauty! 🙂
