Horror Bishoujo Archive

Kotobukiya had two Bishoujo-related announcements at Toy Fair: the art for Katana and the full reveal of Kamala. But given at this is a US-centric event, they had a TON more out and about, though funnily enough most of them were from non- comic franchises. It’s amazing how big the line has grown since it started with just Marvel girls!
It was mostly movie Bishes on display: Chucky (who might be my all-time fave), Edward Scissorhands, and The Bride. Then there were some video game girls, like Rainbow Mika and Ibuki. We also know that there will be a new Chun-Li, though the sign for her was not out.

It’s only been a short while since Kotobukiya showed off the painted Bishoujo Chucky sculpt, but apparently it’s already time for Tiffany to make an appearance! This is a very fast turnaround on both of them, given that the art was unveiled last February.
We don’t have any full images of her, just this atmospheric shot of the devilish duo. They both look amazing, and I had pretty high expectations for Tiffany given that it’s the same sculptor as Chucky. I bet they’ll look perfect together out in display!
[UPDATE] Full pictures are in the gallery! She’s also up for pre-order.

There seems to be a pattern with me and the Horror Bishoujo line. When we first find out about an announcement, I’m skeptical (“cute girl Chucky?” I say to myself. “No thanks.”). The art is unveiled and I’m basically won over because it’s always so good. Then we get the sculpt, and I’m totally in love. It happened with Edward Scissorhands, and it’s happening again with Chucky, who I think I actually like the most of the line so far!
She’s just so adorable but also evil. The knife behind her back? Such a nice touch. Plus she comes with an alternate scarred head if you want a little more horror in your life. The sculpt here is just lovely, and we found out that Tiffany will be done by the same person so the two should fit together perfectly when they’re completed!

We’ve brought you quite a bit from Kotobukiya’s NYCC panel so far: Ms. Marvel Bishoujo, Katana Bishoujo, DC tv shows, Spike, Star Wars, Marvel, and DC. But there are always some assorted odds and ends left over!
They had information about a handful of their anime and game figures. None of it was that new, but we did get confirmation that the Street Fighter Bishoujo line would be continuing! They didn’t have a reveal here, but we were assured that Rainbow Mika is not the last one we’ll see. Along with that, we found out that the Horror Bishoujo line is also continuing! Again, no actual announcement, but they said there were “several interesting licenses” they were discussing. Which hopefully means not just one more Horror Bish, but a ton of them!

I am really surprised by how consistently smitten I’ve been with the Horror Bishoujo line. As a hardcore horror fan it seems right up my alley, but I was hesitant about gender-swapped, sexified versions of my faves. After Edward Scissorhands and Chucky & Tiffany’s art reveal, I knew it was love, and Bishoujo Chucky’s sculpt has just solidified my love for this line.
She’s SO CUTE, guys. The cheeky pose, the amazing job they did on her face, the intricacies of her outfit sculpt, the sneaky knife behind her back… even though I am mortally petrified of dolls coming to life, I want her. I mean, if this little cutie got up and started walking around my apartment I wouldn’t even mind. As long as she keeps the knife to herself. And how creepy is the alternate face? Yes please.

Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands has been a wild ride. I went from ‘what the hell‘ to ‘oh, that looks okay‘ to ‘holy shit so beautiful and I need it.’ If you told me a year ago that I’d be lusting after a goth-tastic girl version of Edward Scissorhands I would have called you crazy. But hey, we all make mistakes.
Edward (Edwina?)’s outfit is basically the clothing my true self wants to wear all the time. The belts, the fluffy but torn skirt, the amazing boots and thigh-high stockings. Fabulous! And since this is the Bishoujo line, she’s got a killer butt. They sure do know what the people want.

I’ve been cautiously optimistic for Kotobukiya’s Edward Scissorhands Horror Bishoujo since the art was first revealed. While it seems totally wacky, moreso even than Freddy & Jason, the art was just really cool and interesting-looking. Plus, we don’t really have any gloomy goth Bishoujos (or figures in general let’s be honest) so I was anticipating a real change of pace for the line.
Well, she’s fully sculpted and painted, and I am totally blown away. I mean, the detail level is just… woah. Look at how beautiful and moody her face is! All those belts and buckles! This is definitely one of the best Bishoujos we’ve ever seen, which I never would have expected at that initial reveal. And let’s all take a moment to appreciate that her name was not gender-swapped, so there’s no “Edwina Scissorhands.” I would like a few more scars, though.

I was a little on the fence about the Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands announcement. I mean, I don’t want ~so sexy so emo Edwina Scissorhands.~ But the teaser looked great, so I kept my hopes up. And, well, here she is–not too sexified! I love her confused expression, it’s so cute, and of course I am a sucker for the black lacy outfit–the belts! So goth, so stylish. I wonder how all that curly hair is going to translate into a physical sculpt?
