PURENEEMO!

Last Tuesday I had a “meet up” with a buyer of my Ori Princess Doll and we agreed to meet at SM Light Mall.  Anyway after our transaction, I took a quick tour around since it’s my first time to be there.  I don’t usually agree to transact any other place except Megamall or Galleria, but since it’s along the way, I thought why not.

The store Cool Japan caught my attention, the name, signage, simple lay out and I saw the Gundam display!  No, I’m not into it, my brother collects these type of toys so I thought of taking a few snaps to show him.  This small store has items ranging from select collectible figures, toys, craft materials and beauty items such as make up, lipsticks, nail polish, false eyelashes, etc!

I asked the cashier if they have dolls from Japan, not the souvenir type, she pointed the anime dolls Pureneemo.  I got so excited I asked permission to take a few shots.

They are of 1/6 Scale and Wow!  They cost almost 70% of my one month salary!  Lucky are those who can afford without feeling the dent on their pockets!  Anyway, even if they put these up on sale, I can’t afford and have no plans of buying even on installment basis.

I know these type of dolls have been around for quite some time, you can probably find them in Greenhills, but this is my first time to see them up close and I felt so excited I could have bought one…if… they are priced at Php800.00 maybe? He he he!

I have asked permission from the cashier if I can take a few shots and yeah!

These reminded me of “Futami Ami” by Revoltech which I found in a thrift store sometime in 2013.  Next post, Futami Ami.

Loretta Daum Byrne

The name Loretta Daum Byrne is actually the creator/designer of this doll.  Of course this one is another thrift store find a few years ago.  She looked different and Asian looking than that of a Native American Doll as how she was described in ebay.  I think this doll was produced by Fibre Craft tagged as World Friends.

She is 8″ tall, rubberized head fully rooted, hollow plastic body, wears crocheted shorts and dress with a summer hat, I lost the pair of shoe.  She looked more like a Vietnamese.  Of course, since she’s a craft doll, anyone can dress her up and turn her into anything like a souvenir doll in different costume.
