Hello 2021! So it seems my annual updates are turning into biennial. 2 weeks ago I welcomed 2 new dolls, my fingers still hurt from digging out their hot glue, ouch. I don’t buy boys very often but I really loved these 2’s entire set, the faces, wigs, outfits, I’m quite a fan of the Interstellar Dormitory series’ designs. The only thing I wish was different is their shoes, because I like the clown style shoes the other big boys come with much more. I had thought Volks already made a MSD sized version previously too.
I was slightly worried about Gilbert because in some photos his face looks quite weird, but I’m glad they are both cute in person. The biggest surprise was how their personalities are the opposite of what I expected. Eric looks quite sweet and gentle in photos, but in person he has a sharp face like a hawk. Gilbert too looks kind of serious in photos, but in person he is the more gentle and dopey one. I was originally planning to call them Dmitri and Thomas, but once I saw them in person those names just didn’t suit at all, so Dionysus and Hephaestus it is. Unexpectedly I ended up choosing names that match my other Interstellar Dormitory boy, Artemis. One more nice surprise is that Volks is allowing international orders for the owner parts.
I also purchased DWC 04 and 05 in the DWC event last year. I had heard School A’s head is quite big but wow, it is quite big. Compared to DWC 01 however, I think DWC 04 is cuter after all.
Orgel has arrived~, she is a Volks SD Luna. When Luna was first released I actually didn’t like her much. Once I started seeing repaints however, I liked her more and more, but by then she was harder to find. I started to wait for a re-release, but somehow it just didn’t happen. Then the first poll for best of the best was held, and I tried to vote for her many times, but sometimes I would forget. Then the second poll happened, and she wasn’t included, I wondered if something happened to her mold? Then the third poll, this time she was back in the running and I made sure to bookmark it so I could vote for her everyday, so I’m really happy she made it to the best of the best selection, and now here she is! Somehow this version of her default faceup makes her look kind of like Lieselotte.
Last year I also welcomed a second Beth March. A friend was selling her and I decided to buy a twin for Celeste, so now I have Celeste and Celesta, very imaginative names. I also joined the BlueFairy Tiny Fairy Limited Type Choice preorder. Daisy and Kevin were not what I expected so I have put them up for sale. Rachel and Olive Valentine are cute, but Olive V has a noticeably smaller head than my older Olive. It makes me wonder if all the heads that were renewed with the added magnets are also smaller…which would be a shame because I think the bigger heads are cuter. I think that now brings my crew up to date.
In any case, Luna was the last limited doll that I really wanted. Now that I have her perhaps I can look for FCS dolls or branch out into other companies. I have been curious about Daydream and iMda, but I am in no hurry.
Looks like it’s been a while since I last updated, wow! But I do have some exciting news, another girl is joining my crew ^^
I have also added a shop section to my website for Mth Eyes and used items.
Previously I was using Etsy to sell my handmade eyes, however the fees kept increasing and there was a monthly fee even if nothing is sold, so in the end it wasn’t worthwhile continuing.

Been working on a corset pattern for SDGr girls. Most of the front and all the eyelets on the back are hand embroidered :)
Although this is actually my fifth try, there are still a few minor things I want to change so I’ll need to make one more.
New eyes have been added to my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Moonteahouse :D
I will be updating my Etsy shop this Friday 25 August at 8pm Australian Eastern Standard Time ^^
