Dollfie Dream Lucy was released only about a year ago, but it was recently announced that she was getting a second release–the Magical Princess version! While this might seem like an odd choice compared to other more popular dolls they could re-release (Yuki, Rina, Sasara, Tamaki…) I do adore my Lucy so I am happy to see a new getup for her.
The faceup is pretty much the same as the first one, though it looks like there might be a little more blush. She is, however, on a semi-white body like KOS-MOS, which is a small change but it does count. But the outfit is to die for! It’s just so freaking adorable, I love the parasol and the intricate dress. I’d love to get it for my own Lucy!

We’ve already seen one of the dolls for Hometown Dolpa Osaka 7, Natsumi (who I love ahh so cute), and now we’re getting a peek at the second one. It’s… Lucy! Yes, the one that already got a release. Same sculpt, same skin color, but new outfit! Now she’s a magical princess.
Lucy is one of my favorite dolls that I own, so I am all for a release of her. But it’s still odd: you’d think if they wanted to do a second release of a ToHeart 2 girl, it’d be Sasara or Tamaki. Hopefully this means we’ll get them too because I would do unspeakable things for Tama-nee…

Hometown Dolpa Kyoto 9 has ended, as well as the US lottery, so the Volks International After-Event is pretty much your last shot at owning Dollfie Dreams Lucy & Haruka for retail. Lottery orders just opened and will close at 17:00 Japan time on March 27th. You can place your orders here for Lucy & Haruka and their limited outfits as well as SD Megu and Yo-SD Megu!
The DD Blog has also given us another preview of Lucy, which is great for people looking to buy her as it seems she was incredibly limited and there aren’t a ton of user pictures. I only know a handful of people who won her in the US lottery–though thankfully I was among them! Many people seem to think Lucy is too pouty but I adore her faceup and these new images only make me want mine more! If you are entering Haruka seems to be a lot more common, but as always the odds are a bit lower in the International event because there are so many people entering.

Hometown Dolpa Kyoto 9 is about 2 weeks away, which means sites are preparing for the lottery entries! Volks USA has put up pages for all of the limited items, including the 2 lovely new Dollfie Dreams. DDdy Hauka Niimi will retail for $594 while her tennis outfit (which includes a wig) will be $141. DD Lucy Misora is a tiny bit more at $605, though I’m not sure why there is an $11 difference between the two since their sets seem really similar. They will also be releasing ToHeart2 uniform sets for the DD and DDdy ($86) and MDD ($75). Of course there are SDs too–SD16 Megu ($1,078) and Yo-SD Megu ($506).
The lottery will open on March 11th at 11AM PST and will close on the 14th at 11AM PST. Good luck to anyone who chooses to enter–all of the dolls this time around are so lovely!

Last week we got a sneak peek at the guidebook for Hometown Dolpa Kyoto 9, and two new Dollfies were unveiled–Lucy Misora and Haruka Niimi! The pictures were really blurry though, so most collectors were waiting for Volks’ official pictures to decide whether or not they wanted to splurge on a new doll.
Now we do have nicer shots of these girls, and they are both lovely! Lucy is on a white-skinned DDIII with an S bust, and Haruka is on the new DDdy which will have improved joints. Haruka also has an alternate tennis outfit with a ponytail wig which will be ¥12,800. Lucy is priced at ¥55,000 and Haruka at ¥54,000 so thankfully there are no crazy-expensive dolls this time! I think Stephen and I will be going for both of these girls once they hit Volks USA next month! The event takes place on March 11th, and lotteries should start shortly after that.

With Dolpa Kyoto 9 right around the corner, it’s time for Volks to surprise us all with some new Dollfie Dream releases! The first is Lucy Misora from ToHeart2, who is a white-skinned DDIII. Her faceup looks uncannily similar to Sasara, only younger. The second is Haruka Niimi from PhotoKano. She’s on a DDdy, and I simply love her eyes and face sculpt. This is actually the new DDdy, which is an upgraded body that will have joints similar to the DDS and DDIII.
Both of these girls have a rather sad or at least shy expression, which is really my cup of tea–while they don’t seem that popular among collectors in general, I have quite a few similar girls in my collection! Lucy is priced at ¥55,000 and Haruka’s price isn’t visible in these shots, but we can assume that she will be around the same range.
