Celeste arrived today~, she is a Volks SDGr Elizabeth “Beth” March.
Compared to my Alice who has the first version SDGr body, she no longer has the exchangeable neck piece, so her head is not floppy! To me this was one of the most annoying issues with the older SDGr body, that the neck would snap or fall into random positions and would not stay where I wanted it to, but this has now been resolved (I think it was resolved a while back actually but I hadn’t bought any SDGrs since Alice/Lorina…). The other issue which was the S-hooks chipping the back of the high heeled feet, I’m glad to see also that this has been resolved, Volks now ships with the S-hooks facing away from the legs. This now makes it much more tempting for me to try to find a Jo… Her head does feel a tiny bit smaller than Alice’s, but I’ll try comparing them again when I wipe her faceup.
Also did you know that KIPS stands for Keep It Posed System? I did not.
