Back, enjoying collecting after many years away!

Post  booksanddolls on Mon Nov 21, 2016 3:26 am

My name is Bella and I'm back after many years of not collecting. I haven't had a Dal in probably five years, but I recently saw a photo of one on Instagram and decided I wanted to start collecting again.

In my spare time I knit and sew, and looking forward to buying my first Dal in forever soon, and making some cute clothes for her!

I remember you! It's nice to have you back. Is there a Dal who has caught your eye?

Thanks Truefan and CornflowerBlue. I'm think Jouet as PS has the 6th anniversary version at a great price right now. I tend to like the Dals with straight (or reasonably straight) hair more. Planning to knit her some hats too so straight hair might be easier. I'm sure I will be building up a collection in no time Smile

I love both Jouets, but just be forewarned that her wig is not of the best quality. However, if you will be putting hats on her, that should be okay.

Thanks for the heads up. Do you know if any of the Dals with straight hair have a good stock wig? I imagine I will re-wig Jouet eventually, as she was always my grail so I'd like to have her in a nice wig.

Looking at the Dals PullipStyle has in stock:

Two of the newer Dals, Ho-Ho and Cherry Sweet, both have lovely wigs.

Lyla and Loa also have nice wigs, although Loa's can be a bit thin.

Darony (in that ridiculous dog suit) and Lipoca (the devil look is not everyone's taste) also have nice wigs.

So many great choices, I think I'm going to get Loa first. Hoping Santa might bring me another one too!
