Ballet Shoes By Ursi Sarna for Menagerie dolls (Posing body)

 Finally I`m back at my studio and back to work!!

Thank you everyone for your kind understanding regarding this unexpected brake I had to take last month.

Also thank you so much for all the lovely get well wishes to my mom- her operation was a success, and she is recovering at home now 🙂

Due to the unexpected delay in the doll`s arrival as well as my Mother emergency operation,

I have had no time to post photos of the beautiful Ballet shoes Ursi Sarna has created for my doll.

These are just  gorgeous and so finely detailed -soon available to order via email <3

You will see other designs also on her instagram page @ursisarna so be sure to check these out too!

More FAQ :

I have joind the mailing list , when is the next pre-order?:

  • Thank you so much for your interest, and for listing up!! 💕  until now I only received limited amount of orders at designated times of the year, at which I send out a newsletter with info on placing an order – However things are changing now and I`m working on a new website and simpler ordering system, though this can still take a couple of months to complete. As for now – If you would like to receive the pricing info, or place an order sooner, you are welcome to email me (right now girl posing body orders only please)💕

 

What if I don`t want to use magnetic Nude heels for my menagerie doll`s feet at all, and rather have natural feet with no insert?

  • Let me know via email! I`ll be happy to replace your feet with natural feet instead 💕

 

I love the jointed hands but also want non jointed hands!

  • Please look forwards, I will soon have such hands available to order ! 🙂

 

What is Joint glue? how do I use it?

  • The glue is just an extra for you to use in case that the lining peals off after rough play, you can use it to touch it up, or replace it. I will probably do a tutorial about lining joints at some point in the future, but you can always contact me about that if you ever need help 😊

 

How do I change the feet?

  • Changing the feet: The feet are connected with tiny hooks to the Elastic band that keeps the body together. In order to change feet, pull the foot away from the ball joint, until you see the connecting hook and elastic. stick a pointy object inside the Elastic loop now showing, to keep it from pulling back in to the joint (in the photo attached I used a toothpick to make it easy to understand in the photo, but since it is a very thin object it might brake under the pressure of the elastic, so I recommend a  chopstick or pencil that will not brake). Now that it is secure in place, unhook the foot and hook in the replacement. Once the new foot is hooked in place,  its safe to remove the pointy object, and the foot will naturally pull back in=> replacement done!

 

What`s up with Venus pre-order?

  • Due to personal family matters,I had to take this month (June) off, so there is a delay  – I`m now planing to start it as soon as next month! Thank you so much for your patience and understanding💕

 

PS. I will be gathering all FAQ&A to a permanent page I`ll add to this blog.

I was recently referred to wonderful un-boxing/reviews of the Menagerie Natural Posing girl made by Erica and Natalia.

I thought it was so great of them to take time to publish and help other people have a better understanding and feel for these girls 🙂

I contacted them each and asked if they would agree that I link to it on my blog, so more people will be able to see it and be further informed, and happily for us, they very kindly agreed.

Thank you so much Erica, Natalia!! 💕🙏

BTW If you also own a Menagerie doll and would like to help other people by sharing your personal opinion and experience with your girl, let me know and I will be happy to link to it as well – no matter what the format is, as long as it is informative, it`ll surely be helpful🙏

Again thank you so much for your patience and understanding🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

%97 of dolls have already shipped out, a couple of complex orders will ship out tomorrow morning.

Will let everyone know the tracking numbers this evening when I`m back from my studio, via email <3

Edit; have notified everyone!

People that are waiting for the remainder of their order (shoes, parts and BJ feet) are also having their parcels arranged now for shipping before I leave 🙂

Ok, since some lovely people are waiting and asking, and since I did originally plan Venus`s order to the beginning of June,

please allow me to postpone this order a bit, at least until after the 14th, due to these family matters that just popped up.

I`m so sorry and will keep everyone updated about this as soon as I`m at my parents place.

If you are registered to the mailing list, I promise that you are not missing out on this order, please don`t worry <3

Lot`s of love and gratitude for those who are looking forwards!!!

OK I`ve had a bit of a crazy weekend, the result of which I`m still at home in Tokyo, and have postponed my trip to the 14th of this month!

so I`m here to get ALL of May and June girls shipped as soon as possible!

If you are on either of these orders and have not been contacted yet, you will receive and email from me within the next few days!!

talk to you soon 💕

Eli

 

June 1, 2018

Thank you so much again for your patience !

I`v finished sueding all  remaining May girls as well as %80 of June girls, and these will be packed, and ship in turn from next week.

I am leaving tomorrow morning, so the few girls that remain will be shipped towards end of June once I`m back, I hope for your kind understanding,

I`m really so sorry for this inconvenience .

I will contact everyone personally via email early next week to give a more exact shipping schedule to each and every girl 💕

We`ve shipped out the first part of the girls, it took us Monday as well as most of Tuesday to finish shipping.

I`m going to now write to the owners in the next couple of hours.

Also, over the last weekend, I have received some personal news regarding mother`s health .

I have thought much about how to arrange things, since I will have no choice but to leave this Saturday in order to make it before an urgent operation she is going to undergo..

My husband will stay and take care of shipping the rest of the girls for us over the corse of next month, as he is the  head of shipping under normal circumstances too 😎

I still believe we can have most if not all of the May girls shipped out early next week, as I`v scheduled in my last post.

However the only way for me to get all girls ready before I leave, would be to ship them without all the extra parts, such as shoes and jointed feet.

I hope for your kind cooperation on this, the parts are all here, so I`ll be able to ship them to you as soon as I`m back.

As for June dolls, I`m going to get them ready for shipping too, just as many as I can make before I leave.

I`ll put up regular updates, so please do not email me individually unless there is something urgent. If there is an address change, or particular shipping instructions, email me – I might not answer right away, but we are anyway not shipping again before early next week, and I`ll have plenty of time to answer next week from my parents house, and update my husband before shipping. Also we do not ship before sending you an email, so please don`t worry. Answering mails right now keeps me from the most important work of getting your girls ready, I hope you can kindly understand 💕

I`m so sorry for this great inconvenience at last minute.. Please believe getting your girls shipped with as little delay as possible is my very first objective!

 

Sincerely,

Eli
