Here is a picture of some special Totoco Kisara dolls that are supposed
to be out in May.
There is supposed to be a blue, red, and black hair Kisara wearing slinkly long black dresses.
The one in the middle on the picture is actually wearing a Totoco Chinese Lina dress.
The black dresses on either side though are what the dresses are supposed to look like.
They said there might be some small changes to the patterns of the dresses but
they should look similar to what is shown below.
