In Yuzen Blossom Giselle exclusive

by Alison Rasmussen


I'm not sure how I missed this one before, but BIC is offering a limited edition of 300 Giselle Diesendorf doll (on a smaller busted FR Nippon body) exclusive called In Yuzen Blossom. She is available for pre-order now for 19,950 yen (according to Google, this is about $205 dollars). She should ship in July.

Giselle is dressed in a silk kimono with a faux fur (not a real fur) stole, an Obi belt, and flat Japanese sandals.

According to the website, "Yuzen" is the traditional method used to dye kimono fabric in Kyoto, and the fabric is authentically from the Yuzen studio.

I don't own a Giselle sculpt yet--and I have to say, this doll is mighty tempting!
