When I first saw this picture of Purin, I fell in love and immediately wanted hand warmers just like that! I hate to be a copy cat, but it was just too cute to pass up >____< So I went to the ol’ trustful (Ebay) and snagged them for merely a $1. Yep, just 99 cents. So cheap, it almost seemed too good to be true, but it was true and they shipped super fast.
Of course, they aren’t as cute on me and my poses are all off, but I now have them and that’s all that matter >:]
Also, I’m starting to really become interested in the “living doll” community. It’s comprised of a group of girls who literally look like dolls.
Valeria Lukyanova and Anastasiya Shpagina
My make-up is also really inspired by them. I love the bold looks some of them have. Here is a complete list of the dolls.
There are probably more of them, but I just don’t know about them yet. Now, when you look at that list, do you notice any girls of color? Are there any black living doll girls?
I always thought of Saiharii
And Barbara Kim as the living dolls of the black gyaru community.
But, from my knowledge, they aren’t recognized at all in the living doll community. Maybe I just don’t know of it.
But, then again, it really turns me off how pale skin always seems to be the top priority when it comes to being a doll. Even on their Tumblr it states:
The doll skin mostly is pale, they don’t have fake tans nor use tanning device or solution. The paler the better.
Why must they always be porcelain dolls?
Here is my go at trying (and painfully trying, at that) to be a doll:
I hope they accept Bratz dolls into their community.
