I FINALLY CAVED! :D

Post by howll on Sat Mar 28, 2015 1:02 pm

Oh yeah, HI.  

Been eyeing up and making various Makies for a while and I've finally ordered, I whittled my choices down to ten. 

https://mymakie.com/people/howl/

I umm and ahhd over it for a while and eventually chose to go Evelynn.  For my first makie, I wanted one that was somewhat "normal" (Despite the elven ears) and plus chose to order now as there's a chance for that cutttteeee jumper! If all goes well,  Misty & Stella will be next!

Now for the wait T_T

Hi Howl! Great to see you! 

Ahh you worked out how to actually name them, excellent! She has such character, I think she's gonna look really interesting made real.

Ooo the agony of the two week wait!

Thanks guys! Ugh just realised Argos have the makies design your own for £64.99! Oh well, it would have been a bit of a saving.

Actually scrap that, doesn't look like its for the design a doll but for the premade ones and I'm pretty sure it's random, as there's no way to specify

True, there are some premade Makies out there. Those are probably out there for "quick present" buys. I like them, but I love my own Makies better, since I designed them myself.

I understand why the others are out there, and I honestly hope they all find a loving home.

oo. I wonder why they've dropped the price slightly, maybe weren't selling because nobody knows what the hell they are?

That is a REALLY confusing listing though. Hmmm...

I wonder... It has a picture of a gift box.. and then a MIY doll. Wth Argos?
I am tempted to check it out and report back.

I shall reserve one to collect (2 days time it claims), go in, have a look and let you guys know if it's a card or a mfy doll. Bwhahaha.
We SHALL know!

That's a good idea! Let me know for sure!

Dollyay, I assume she'll just reserve one, you don't have to pay until you collect with argos so you can choose not to buy it Smile

yeah you don't pay, you can totally mess argos around. It's GREAT. I... totally haven't previously ordered like 20 things in just to get stock into a local store for people.. nooo... not at all... *whistles*

but yeah, i also sent them a question about it so we'll see whether they reply.

Yeah. I assumed you were reserving one, but still! Well I guess the fact that I really can't save my money might be why I only have one...

Tempting to grab a couple to use at a later date lol.

It's not a bad price, did you use it for your free shipping order? Would be a lot cheaper!

I didn't pick it up yet, gonna grab it tomorrow hopefully. Migraine allowing.
Husband's gonna use it lol. I already ordered 2 boys this past fortnight.

Though I AM tempted to grab multiples. If I order two more into store I could then use the £5 gift card to buy one... then the £5 gift card for buying that one to buy the other. Lol.
endless £5 gift cards!

Update on the argos thing.

Yeeees they do have the gift cards.. but someone in the warehouse gave everything Makies sent them the same item code... so all the fashion packs and the gift card are all catalogued at the same thing in the system.
I ordered one in, they brought out the penguin fashion pack. I was like *snort, idiots*

To their credit, Argos were really cool about it all and even gave me a £5 voucher as an appology. Sounds like the warehouse noticed because you now cannot order the items into store at all. Hopefully they fix it soon. Someone's gonna be on relabelling duty.

Well the package has departed from London and I set up the text alert, thy just said there's a post box in a local pub they can direct the delivery to so I've set that up! Takes away the stress of thinking I may miss the parcel.  But if it's already departed surely they wouldn't wait till Monday to deliver?
