H.NAOTO AND KERA PULLIP DOLL EXHIBITION: MARUI ONE SHINJUKU, GOTHIC LOLITA.
Marui One Shinjuku’s fifth floor display changes frequently, and my photos from yesterday’s post are already outdated! From Sept 25 to Oct 8, you’ll find an exhibition of Pullip dolls wearing Gothic Lolita Punk fashion. The dolls on the right are h.NAOTO’s Dal, Prunella, and Taeyang. (Check out this previous post for more about h.NAOTO’s collaboration, including ordering info.)
Pullip also teamed up with Kera to style several dolls. Working in miniature has its creative upsides; the leather and crystal-studded eye patch/masks on the upper right would cost a fortune if they were human-sized. And the bunny ears look fabulous on the doll, but in real life, they would be half the height of your body!
The big-eyed, round-faced Pullips seem like they’re made to wear frilly Lolita dresses. On the same floor, you can buy the exact h.NAOTO outfits (on the right) in human size.
One of the glass cases held miniature dolls. Some dolls modeled animal costumes and kimonos – but I think the neo-Victorian outfits stood out the most. No wonder Lolitas are described as living dolls!
