6%DOKIDOKI Girls in the Popples Room

What do you get when you mix cute 1980s characters with cute fashion and cute girls from the Japanese fashion brand 6%DOKIDOKI? You get a fuzzy pink bedroom full of so much cuteness that it must be seen to be believed.

Parco Factory in Shibuya recently hosted an exhibition featuring The Popples. As we reported previously, the World of Popples exhibition showcases original Popples artwork, vintage 1980s Popples toys, a place where you can take pictures of yourself in a special Popples photo set, and a gift shop selling Popples goods – including a line of exclusive Popples x 6%DOKIDOKI clothing and accessories. The exhibition – which recently ended in Shibuya, but just opened today in Nagoya – is the first Popples show in Japan since Mind Works Entertainment licensed the characters for the Japanese market last year.

World of Popples

Our favorite part of the Shibuya World of Popples exhibition was “The Popples Room”. As the name suggests, The Popples Room is a bedroom for the Popples that is as cute as they are, if not more so. The space was created in collaboration with the popular Japanese fashion brand 6%DOKIDOKI. If you know 6%DOKIDOKI, you know that they never do anything half-cute. They go all the way to 100% cute, and then multiply by ten – and that’s definitely true of this project. It’s hard to explain just how insanely cute the Popple’s Room really is, so we are very lucky that 6%DOKIDOKI and Mind Works Entertainment allowed us to take photographs of the room to share with you.

Popples x 6%DOKIDOKI Girls

On Sunday, February 21st, 6%DOKIDOKI held a special event in The Popples Room. “6%DOKIDOKI Girls in The Popple’s Room” featured a live performance in which several girls from 6%DOKIDOKI literally lived in the Popple’s Room for several hours while fans looked on. 6%DOKIDOKI fashion is cute. 6%DOKIDOKI girls are cute. The Popples are cute. What happens when you mix all three? Check out the pictures and we think you’ll agree, life doesn’t get much cuter than this.

    […] (♥ 0 ♥)   6%DOKIDOKI Girls in a POPPLES room!   I’ve seen Yuki before from Shrinkle’s blog but this is the first time I’ve seen the other chick with her and I swear I have a full on girl crush going on she is HOT!   But sadly her name wasn’t included the post on Tokyo Fashion alas my poor heart!   OK! I’m done fangirling all over the place onto the Popples Room.   Popples wasn’t really a part of my childhood toys or obsessions their limelight had faded by then but thanks to fashions like Fairy Kei they are being revived in Japan (Nippon) and I love it!   Popples are way cute, yeah?   So do you know the name of my girl crush? Tell me! LOL   Sources: TokyoFashion […]

    6%DokiDoki said that the two Japanese girls in the pictures above are called Yuka and vani. Yuka’s name is written in katakana, but “vani” is written in romaji, just as you see it (with a lower case “v”).
