Last Sunday my friend Natalie and I ventured into Tokyo to do something a little out of the ordinary–we went to a doll show, called I Doll, which is held a few times a year in Tokyo. Learn more about it here (Japanese only!) We didn’t know what to expect, really. I had seen some photos of the incredibly detailed dolls on the internet before going, but I was really surprised by what we saw.
The show was mostly a place for vendors to sell accessories for the different kinds of dolls, ranging all the way from hats to shoes. Each vendor also had some dolls on display to showcase their work. There were some vendors selling dolls as well. From what I gather, these dolls are extremely customizable, and most of them can move and bend at every joint just like a real boy! (Reference to Pinocchio…)
Anyway, enjoy these very detailed/strange/beautiful/scary dolls!
