For the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a long overdue website update. I’ve reorganised some pages and the menu, made everything cleaner and prettier (or at least I think so…), and also hopefully the pages are now not tiny on mobiles.
As always if you find anything is broken please let me know ^^

Met up with a friend who also received a Beth this week ^^. We took some photos at Spice Alley, followed by Prince Alfred Park.
The lighting at both locations was perfect. Funnily Beth looks amazing with herself, more so than any other doll I’ve seen.
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.
The new eyes have been added to my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Moonteahouse :)
I will be updating my Etsy shop this Saturday 13 May at 10am Australian Eastern Standard Time.
This time I tried to make the sclera whiter, you can see a comparison photo above. I’m still learning so the surface is a bit more bumpy compared to before, but I don’t think it’s too noticeable in a doll or in photos.

The air is a little more crisp each morning, the sun sets a little earlier each evening, winter is coming~
Since once again I have less light than I’m used to, I tried taking some photos in the dark. I seem to keep using the same prime lens so I may as well take a night photo once in a while. I tried using a little focus stacking, just 2 shots, to have both dolls in focus. I was also very impressed by how bright these lights were, they look quite magical lighting up an entire dark room. Thank you modern LEDs.
