The Unofficial "Make My Makie Match" pre-change quick-buy thread.

Post by IndigoAndAsh on Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:39 am

OK, 'fess up - how many of us went and placed and order as soon as they heard about the change? Who did you order? Is it someone specific you've been wanting a while, or a new idea?

I ordered two characters from a story I've been on-off writing for years, Jordan and Angie. (Thankfully they're the only two young characters, the others would be too hard to Makie without serious customisation because of age.) I was saving up and had promised myself I would get them once they went on sale, probably near Christmas.

Since I have a bunch of Bratz Boyz clothes that are perfect for tomboys, Jordan has been ordered in the purple check dress which will be handed straight to Angie on arrival. So her gallery picture looks just _wrong_ right now. I would have liked darker caramel but I'll be happy with whatever I can get - as far as I can tell the tone is still clearly different to the vanilla white.

Ordered: Saturday 22nd August
Went to Print: Monday 24th August

Dude. I'm like. Waiting for my financial aid so that I can order two of my girls that I wanted to order by the end of the year or next T.T I have Maddie who is strawberry milk, so I'm ordering Daliah who is Cocoa and Lacey who is Caramel (hope she's not that pale). There are two other dolls I really wanted to get with the 3D printed bodies, but I can't justify the expense :p At least I get one of each color, plus my OCs don't come in bizarre colors so I should be fine. I just hope the texture in the new bodies will not be too ugly :/

Yeah, everyone I want to make is in a human skin colour so I'm not really affected by the no-dyeing thing. I'd like to get a Cocoa Makie at some point just because they look so good, but that can wait.

Hope your aid comes in soon so you can get them ahead of the deadline. (I did some squinting over "Do I want to wait until Thursday when my paycheck comes in, or is that risking them running out?")

I ordered "BlushNano," who I made while messing around making cute wee faces. I was going to wait a while to get her but I want her to match the other girls so I ordered her on Sunday after thinking about it for, oh, hours at least. I didn't want to regret not getting her now, you know? I don't have any other Makie-faces that I want quite as badly, so she could be my last but probably not because making them is addictive.

I ordered Frost who is all white, and I wanted Robin to match Sage so I ordered him too. I saw some people on Facebook mention not being able to order their dolls because the wig they wanted was out of stock so I ordered my dolls as soon as I could.
I'm hoping to make a second order of bits and pieces later in the week. Jen mentioned that they will be tweaking the joints a bit to fit the new bodies so I want to order the medium and high heel feet in both strawberry milk and white now but I decided to wait on news about whether they still have some old hand packs in stock before I order them. I'd like to buy the hand packs too if they have enough left to put up for sale. I want eyes too....

Haha I sure did! I won't actually be affected much by the body change, there are still makies I plan to get further down the line, and only some sort of massive dip in quality or something would dissuade me. I think the new bodies will probably be a-ok for me.

But I ordered one that is meant to go with the two existing makies I have. Just in case there are any larger visual/tactile differences, I wanted to make sure he matched the other two!

I'm probably going to be purchasing one of my space kids before the week is out because they're one I intend to dye. I'm a little bummed though because I'd been planning to buy them and their girlfriend together but I don't think I can splash out £100 right now. I shouldn't really be spending £50.

I ordered Morel, a companion for Sour. She is white, and I have plans to dye. Another white girl and boy from the same story are being left behind. I'm sorta crushed by this new body change on multiple levels as most of the rest of my plans included a rainbow of elf makies. I'm reserving a final judgement until we know more about the new body, but as of now, for the purposes of my own collection, I'm not optimistic.

This definitely seems like it's going to hit the people with non-human coloured plans hardest.

I'm really curious to see what I end up with - the hair isn't "quite" right for either of them, what I wanted was a long black wig parted in the middle, and a light brown/reddish wig - I've ended up with Sadako and Tawny - pictures I've seen of Tawny range anywhere from reddish dark brown to flaming ginger. So I might end up swapping those out at a later date. But it's fun to anticipate/try and guess.

I ordered my two goblinoids, they need to be dyed so it was rather crucial to get them. (Moniker and Alias)

I had a couple who were going to be dyed as well but I can't justify them and they were more "eventually" ones anyway. Most of my "characters" were going to be human toned so it should be ok on that front.
I had 3 others I was going to order white, one was a comic book character who needed to be dyed but I can't justify going down that route anyway, if I start buying dolls of characters from other things it'll be an even slipperier slope lol.
One I was going to tea dye so she'd be pale but I can just order her in strawberry, it'd be ok.
And the final one was going to be like my white girl Sa'dii but thinking on it this morning, i'm wondering if he might look better in cocoa anyway. I'm thinking some lovely rich greens to go with the brown, that could be quite attractive.


But it's sad to 1: lose white when it was so versatile for customisation purposes and 2: the ability to dye.
that said, we may be able to colour the bodies still, with spraypaint (it chips around the joints though so it's not perfect). It would be the same method you'd use to recolour playline fashion dolls like Monster High, but with Makies being so much more tempting to pick up, handle and play with i'm not sure the paint will survive as well. I have painted mh dolls, but they sit on a shelf, they're not really handled or posed that often so it minimises chipping. Wheras my Makies I pick up several times a week, constantly redress, pose, play with... hahaha, i'm a big kid when it comes to the Makies, they just... inspire play.

I do think the IM plastic will be easier to drill holes in and cut though, easier to carve too. So there's that trade off.
I'm just hoping the seam lines aren't too obvious. I'll need to sand the heck out of them if they are, really sticky out seams drive me mental.

Frost and Robin went to print on Monday. I'm hoping to make my "bits order" before Frost and Robin get shipped so everything can go in one box and get shipped together but I haven't heard anything yet about when they will put the last of the old hand packs back in the shop.

Lol we're all scraping for loose change now aren't we?

the new price though, means I can buy a Makie a month *snort*
ok, means I can't buy anything else that month, but still! even with new bodies, I can't see my addiction being at all helped.

I just gotta decide which white one to order before they stop making them. I'm AGONISING but ideas are forming slowly.

Yeah, I feel like once I see the new body I'll want a Makie. In spite of worrying about it now.

I just went back and got shoes - sadly had to pay shipping because I didn't think of it at the time, but I don't want to run the risk of them changing the feet. So, three pack of the basic shoes, and then I'll have a spare pair of shoes for each Makie.

The poor peeps at the lab, they must be so overworked at the moment haha! ^^;
It's exciting that so many of us will all end up with new dolls around the same sort of time though. 

IndigoAndAsh, maybe you should make a "The Unofficial "Make My Makie Match" gallery thread" after we start receiving them! XD

Definitely will!

Though I just realised I still haven't posted any more pictures of Tara since the first blurry few. I'm in the middle of a major rearrange, so I'll have to do that as soon as I have a flat surface.

Next trip: To Ikea tomorrow for another set of furniture. (For the Makies, not me. I have plenty of furniture. If I had less, it would be easier to rearrange.)

I want the high and mid feet in 2 colors, shoes for Robin and Frost who are still out for printing, and hand packs in two colors if I can get them. I think Jen said there were some hand packs available but they were working on the details of how to sell them to us. I'm waiting to make my second order until we get word on the hand packs because I want to order enough to qualify for free shipping to the US.

You can still get some of those things here: https://mymakie.com/shop/catalogue/bits-and-parts/, if you haven't already seen! 
And here's the hand packs: https://mymakie.com/shop/catalogue/expression-hands-bundle_6593/ (only available in white)
https://mymakie.com/shop/catalogue/action-hands-bundle_6592/
I couldn't afford a hand pack when I bought my pre-change makie (as much as I want one Sad ), but I did buy some high heeled feet.

Monday, Jen commented on a post on the Makies Facebook group about the bits and parts section of the store.
"So, we hid the Bits and Parts category deliberately. We didn't delete it (obvs), so if you go hunting you'll find it, but we'd rather nobody ordered that stuff for logistical reasons."

The feet are still in the Everything category so they're fair game right now, but the hand packs and eyes are not. Jen has said that they are counting up stock of the hand packs and will offer them up for sale when they have the logistics figured out so I figured I'd be polite and wait for her to let us know when they are ready for us. i want to wait to order the feet and shoes until I can also order the hands so I can qualify for the free shipping to the US.
