Little Alice in Wonderland (Pullip Style)

The first of the orders I shouldn’t have made arrived yesterday.  (And I was so excited I accidentally sliced my thumb with my scissors as I was opening the package.  Ugh, I’m such a moron!)  Anyway, the two little dolls within brought my collection of Little+ Wonderland to near completion:

The Little+ Wonderland set

I’m still missing the Mad Hatter, the Card Soldier and Pink Alice, but given the size of the set, that’s pretty close, and certainly as close as I’m likely to get.  (The Card Soldier I actually could have gotten at several times–in fact, I regret to say that I’m pretty sure I saw her at Tuesday Mornings and passed her by ’cause I was getting a lot of other dolls at the time–and didn’t as she wasn’t a very interesting doll, and I hadn’t realized just how close the collection was going to come to completion.  The Mad Hatter and Pink Alice…yeah, not likely to happen.)

Weirdly, the vast majority of these dolls I got for $10.  Like, I think the Queen of Hearts was the only one who was more than that.  (Then again, she and the two I just got are the only ones I didn’t get at Tuesday Mornings, so that’s not really quite so surprising.  Beyond the basic surprise of having been able to get them at Tuesday Mornings in the first place.)

Little+ March Hare

Gotta love all those curls, right?  Her stand is all but incapable of holding her up, though.  And her hat is only balanced on top of her head right now.  I couldn’t get it back on her head properly without messing up her hair.  I don’t like full-size dolls in furry suits, but for some reason I don’t mind them on the dolls in this scale.  Not sure why that is.

Little+ Dormouse

Her hair’s always falling into her face and making her look sleepy, which is appropriate enough for the dormouse. 😛  But that means you can’t see her eyes at all.

…they’re purple.  BTW, as you can see, the strap on her hat broke.  It’s because she kept getting knocked off the shelf she used to live on.  That was why she and the March Hare were the first residents of the shadow box they now live in, along with a little Dal (I think her name is Ximing? Something like that) who’s now been displaced by the Queen of Hearts whose hat was also disrupted by constant shelf-falls.

Most of these Little+ dolls are staying in their boxes until I have arranged the right new set-up in my house to properly display them.  The boxes protect them, you know?  (Given what’s happened to some of them, like the Dormouse’s hat, that seemed like a good idea after a while.)  Anyway, I’m showing them in roughly the order in which I got them, in case anyone’s wondering about the order.

Does that picture look squished to you, or is it just me?  Uh, anyway, her bonnet/headdress/thing came off when I was opening her, and I had to do the best I could to get it back on properly, and I’m not sure I did it right. 😦

Look at those curls!

I’m not sure why the flash going off made the picture darker

Something about the expression on the rabbit hat, as it looks in the package there, is very Muppet.  Or maybe that’s just me?  Sadly, Tuesday Mornings’ price sticker left a horrible residue this time. 😦

Little+ Blue Alice

When PullipStyle called these dolls “samples,” I assumed they were loose.  I didn’t realize they were still in the box, just with a sticker on the front that said “sample.”  That just makes it all the more of a bargain, you know?  I have to be honest, Alice herself was not really on my “oh, man, I wish I could add her to the collection!” list for these, since I felt like I could use a full-size, and just be like “Well, she just ate a mushroom” or whatever.  But I’m glad they had her, too, ’cause look at her!  Isn’t she lovely?  And she’s got little hearts on her eyechips and everything!

I’ve been seeing pictures of this one on Amazon for a while and sighing with despair, because there she’s like $40-50, which is outrageous for a Little Pullip+.  Or I think it’s outrageous, anyway.  (Others are free to disagree and pay whatever they like, so long as they don’t expect me to do the same.)  But I absolutely loved the doll, right?  So I’d been really wanting her, but what could I do about it other than sigh and want idly?

Where they're living right now

This is the crazy location where these girls are living right now.  It’s only temporary–obviously, considering it’s like three dolls deep (there’s a middle row you can’t see)–until I can clean my house and get better displays in the portions of the house currently being used for nothing but garbage, but at some point I hope to get them a proper display together.
