If you’ve been with me a while, then you may remember me commenting on finding a used Pullip on Mandarake, one I’d been regretting passing up on the Sample Sale at Groove.
Well, this is her:
Craziia is a very old Pullip — she’s from 2006, the same year as Rena, in fact — but she was evidently more popular than Brand New Purezza, as she’s hard to come by these days.
She’d been removed from her box by her original owner, but she’s in pristine condition! In fact, I seriously doubt that the sample doll would have been this perfect. (And yet she was cheaper than the sample doll!)
Her hair is wonderfully silky smooth…but from the back I can’t help feeling that she looks like Cousin Itt. 😛
She’s got a very pretty face, don’t you think? I’ve named her Maggie MacCrimmon. (She’s descended from Jamie, of course. Not sure if she’s his daughter or his great-great-great-granddaughter, or what, though.)
I love the way her eye chips catch the light. 😀
Naturally, she comes with a bagpipe!
She also came with this. It was tucked into her belt. From the weight of it, I’d say it’s real metal, rather than plastic painted to look like metal. I was surprised by it, but checking her product info page on Groove’s site, I see that she was indeed supposed to come with a “Sghian Dubh,” which they translated as “Black Dagger,” so I guess that’s what this is…though it doesn’t look black to me. Of course, I also see that she was originally going to have tartan socks instead of brown ones, so…yeah. Anyway, though the dagger isn’t visible in any of her promotional shots, like I said, I found it tucked into her belt.
That didn’t seem like a very secure location for it, so I’ve tucked it here, across the top of her bag. Perhaps no more secure (and if she were a real person, it might produce just as many chances to stick herself with it) but it feels like I’m slightly less likely to lose it if it’s here.
Anyway, there was another reason I was mentally slapping myself upside the head for having passed up the sample Craziia earlier, a reason beyond the fact that she’s a very pretty doll…
Yup! There’s now a doll I have in both regular and Little+ size! 😀 Little+ Craziia was one of the first Little Pullip+ dolls I got at Tuesday Mornings, so I’ve had her quite a while. (Her hat was rather dusty…) It’s cool to have both sizes of a doll like this. 🙂 (I’m tempted to add to my double size collection. Mandarake has the full-size Cosmic Jupi right now, and she’s not all that expensive. I’m sorely tempted by her, but…I’m trying to resist. I have so many Pullips already, after all, and I want to add variety to my collection, not simply “more of the same.” Besides, there are so many other Pullips I’d rather have. Like Cosmic Mercu. If it was her they had, I’d have already snapped her up!)
Maggie had to set down her little self so she could prepare to play her pipes. (And she’s probably holding them wrong, but…I’m just an ignorant American, after all. Plus she’s on the old Type 2 body that isn’t as good at posing and stuff.)
Here’s a close-up of the Little+ version. She’s cute, huh? It’s no surprise I snapped her up at Tuesday Mornings. (At $10, it’s hard to pass any of them up…especially now that it’s gotten so rare for them to have them in. When Craziia came in, they had so many that I still ended up spending a lot of money, despite that I passed on a number of them! *sigh* The good old days…back when they would sometimes get in J-Dolls, too…)
Okay, so there you have C. That’s three down!
