So I was searching for better photos of Snow Miku Pullip, then I stumbled upon this beautiful mechanically winged creature.
Her name is Eos and she is — sold out. Not that I’m going to buy her anytime soon but I still felt bad that she’s sold out. If you are a BJD collector, I’m sure you’re familiar with Pullip, if not, then here’s Mr. Wiki to the rescue.
Pullip is a collectible fashion doll created by Cheonsang Cheonha of South Korea in 2003. Pullip has an oversized head on a jointed plastic body, with eyes that can change positions and wink. Pullip was first marketed by Jun Planning of Japan, but since early 2009, it has been marketed by Groove of Korea. Pullip (풀잎) means ‘blade of grass/leaf’ in Korean.
Isn’t Eos adorable? And steampunk is such a cool combination of style and function which is why I like it so much. If ever I’ll get a doll, a steampunk costume will definitely be a part of his/her wardrobe.
