Hello Momoko: Un-Slutty Barbie, or Blythe's Small-Headed, Anatomically Symmetrical Cousin
Back when I had discretionary income, I used to collect these Japanese dolls called Momoko dolls. Momoko dolls are the smaller-headed, more anatomically symmetrical cousins of the now well-known Blythe dolls (you may have seen Blythe in Target's recent Alexander McQueen ad poster campaign?).
Momokos are pretty and delicate and have the bodies of seventeen year old aspiring fashion models. They're like the indie, non-slutty versions of Barbie--smaller boobs, innocent unsmiling expressions, a greater variety of haircolors. They're also ten times more expensive.
Anyway, I happened to come across this one person's neat photo of her collection of Momoko shoes. The shoes look so delicious. Like candy.
Momoko is made by the company Sekiguchi. Here is their current lineup:
