One of my doll purchases i August is latest Momoko from Sekiguchi – Retro Mermaid (レトロマーメイド).
She was unveiled in May and released in August of 2017.
Let’s look at her promo pictures first:
Her outfit is simple and, truth be told, is not particularly interesting: two-piece two-tone swimsuit with white accents.
Shoes are nice though, hat and bag – with oversized details and could work for many other dolls.
What drew me in and forced my hand were her fair skin, fresh make-up and bright two-tone hair.
I wanted a red-haired Momoko for a long time!
Take note that all her torso, hands and thighs were wrapped to protect body from possible color transference.
I was not willing to test swimsuit resistance to bleeding and promptly removed it from doll after initial photoshoot.
