A Primer on Custom Dolls Beginning with Pullip: Connecting Hearts Through Love 12

Masterpieces move people. Charlie Chaplin, Francis Ford Coppola, Picasso, Dostoyevsky, Jimi Hendrix - whether it be through films or pictures, literature or music, all of these names have given masterpieces to the world that people today still enjoy. However, how such works are enjoyed differs due to each viewer’s likes and their own way of appreciating something. How a viewer views a given work may even change with time. This change is the result of an accumulation of life experiences, and many likely undergo a positive shift in perception. This manner of appreciation is likely to apply to many works of art, even to otaku content like figures and dolls.

In the case of figures, there is no shortage of represented objects, characters, and mecha. Figures can be described as content that brings even more enjoyment to life from the worlds of anime and manga. It is for this reason that you should be familiar with the work being depicted to fully enjoy any given figure. To state it a different way, Before enjoying a figure, it’s best to familiarize yourself with the source work. In this regard, dolls are slightly different.

Dolls are objects for which the owner creates a world. This is why they are created together with the doll. For example, thinking about customization ties in with how to enjoy dolls. There is a wide range of customizable parts for the whole body, from the wig to the shoes and everything in between. The epitome of doll customization is being able to completely change the impression of a doll by changing its wig, eye color, and outfit. In this respect, the owners who build customized dolls can be called creators themselves.

The doll used here is the Aira Pullip P-127, pre-orders for which began in April. It is a commercialized model of the Myra Pullip P-104, an original sexy dancer model that released in September 2013 and almost immediately sold out, with different colored eyes.

The way to enjoy dolls is simple. How do you view dolls and how do you come in contact with them? The answer is by becoming close to the worldview that dolls possess. The trick is showing interest in and love to dolls. This is the same for enjoying the worlds of movies, books, and music as well.

First is a 15 minute exercise! Grab a doll and stare at it from a variety of angles for 15 minutes. For example, if you have a Pullip doll we recommend an angle that shows the beautiful obliqueness in the jawline. By doing so, you will likely be able to enjoy a moment when the Pullip takes on a life of its own.
