Dearest Takara

We are getting mighty, mighty sick of your designs for goth loli Jenny.

Why, you may ask?

Look here, at the lineup we produced, after a mere 5 minutes rummaging through the Tikistitch' s dusty curio cabinet:

None of these dolls or outfits are any newer than vintage 2003.

And there are more. Oh yes, my friend! This is but the tip of the gothic iceberg. There are more upstairs, lying waiting in their little coffin-shaped boxes.

And this does not begin to count the various black-clad dollies we own produced by Azone, Volks, and their ilk. We loves us some goth dolls--no one could dispute that fact, as much of our retirement money is invested in the little buggers.

But back to Takara, and their recent lack of inspiration.

The hat? The little crown applique? Not to mention knee-hi stockings and a petticoat. Doesn't something look a little familiar here???

Yes, go ahead, make more goth lolita style Jenny dolls. But at least have sympathy for the rest of us, the goth-saturated minority. Why not a Jenny dressed as an intergalactic bounty hunter? The Jenny tax collector? Jenny the alcoholic cabaret singer? C'mon Takara dudes! You can do better.

Club Tamaki's dress, the white one with the cardboard heart in the front, suspiciously resembles Idol Shion's pink vinyl outfit.

Not all of it is old hat, I liked the Bunny Ear Jenny Club Marine doll.

I agree! I used to love that style but five years after I bought my first gothic lolita doll outfit, I think it's time to move on. Come on, Takara! This can't still be a current trend.

I guess they're going with what sells... gothic lolita fashions, and school girl uniforms. :p Wasn't it all about the Pink House fashions 5 years ago?

(Too bad that "After school" Calendar Girl line-up never came out... I was really hoping they'd have a cute schoolgirl Lobelia/afterschool activity set.)

I suppose this is Good News for people who missed the previous editions, but it is disheartening when Takara can't seem to put any energy into revitalizing Jenny.

I still haven't made any outfits from the Casual Fashion My Favorite Doll pattern book. At least one of them had the crown applique and the hat and etc.

The other thing is, these are like Jenny Club (or whatever--I've never really gotten the distinction between S Club and Nice Jenny and etc.), so you'd expect them to be both nicer and a bit more creative than the playline dolls.

*whimpers* You want to sell me some of them? I can never seem to find the older Jenny gothloli fashions, let alone the NDR or other ones. I have The Infamous Crown Dress and a few customs... but I loves the lolita fashions, I do, because the dollies wear them so I don't have to. ;)
