Dolly Review: Shibajuku Girls Suki (Second Wave)

While at Target recently, I picked up a second wave Shibajuku Girls Suki. Suki is my favorite of the second wave dolls. Unlike the bright outfits seen on other dolls in this line, Suki has a more pastel aesthetic to her look.

Suki has a mixture of long light blue, pastel pink and white hair. She has a nicely rooted head of hair that is soft to the touch. Suki wears her hair down, with bangs. I personally think these dolls look better with bangs than without. Suki wears ear muffs, which are stuck to her head with tabs. She also comes with four barrettes, a staple in this doll line.

Suki has pale skin. I like this dolls eye make up. She has a silver and white theme going on with her make up. Above her eye is silver glitter and around it is black and white liner. Like the other girls, she has ‘real’ eyelashes. Suki has grey/blue eyes.

If you recall my past Shibajuku review, you’ll remember I had one problem with her– she was lacking an undershirt or tank top under her zipper hoodie. Because of that, I was interested in seeing if Suki, who is also dressed in a zippered jacket, suffered from the same wardrobe malfunction. I’m happy to say that unlike the first wave doll I reviewed earlier, Suki does have a white tankini sort of top under her jacket.

Her pastel jacket is shades of purple and green with pink and yellow accents. The zipper is ridiculously tiny and, I found out while trying to redress this girl, not really a working zipper. It goes up and down, but to really redress her, you’ll have to pull the jacket off her without unzipping it completely. (It’s still pretty easy to get off her that way, but it seemed worth mentioning!)

She’s wearing a pink tulle skirt. To complete the look, she has on polka dotted white and blue knee socks and pink shoes. Overall, the look is super cute and allows her points of articulation to move freely.

Speaking of articulation, the Shibajuku body is kind of like a Pullip dolls. Suki has shoulder, elbow, wrists, hip and knee joints. While this type of body doesn’t allow the doll to stand on her own, it does allow for posing.

Overall, I like the Shibajuku Girls line. They are one of the more interesting dolls in toy stores at the moment. Suki, in particular, is a cute one with a nice color scheme and youthful, fun vibe to her. What do you think of Suki or the Shibajuku Girl line? Share your thoughts below!

    I like the fact that it’s areal,working zipper, even if you can’t undo it all the way.

      That’s true. It is a nice feature. Just strange how it was executed.

    Looks like a really cute doll. Where do you find clothes to dress her in?

    • kewpie83 replied:

      You can buy fashion packs for them. Usually, they’re stocked by the dolls. 🙂

    Suki’s the one I got, too. I love dolls with colorful hair. (I’m always buying pink, purple, blue and green wigs for my BJDs and Pullips…) I hadn’t noticed that thing about the zipper not being fully functional, though. That’s kind of odd, considering they’ve started selling clothing packs for these dolls.
