Ryuu totally agrees with Zhi, he says when he becomes a world famous Makie fashion designer, he's going to turn the fashion world upside down, and blow this whole business of gender stereotyping away! Very Happy

Lol, you should see him rock a pair of leggings and a hoodie! ^_~
YESSS! Ryuu, Zhi, and my Nikki who doesn't do skirts or dresses and is very bossy and outspoken--personality traits that can get you roasted alive as a lady. But she just keeps being a boss (and a total inspiration to me). Down with gender stereotypes!!

Hope you are feeling better today PM   a migraine is never much fun.

Oh I didn't see the Made for You Makies!  Some of those are very cute!  Good thing I will be away from Monday otherwise I might well have been tempted.  But I NEED a boy anyway so....

Did you see the one on Evilbay - I had seen her for sale in the shop....how could anyone NOT want her?

Yes, I saw her! I thought the same thing--who wouldn't want her!? If she was cheaper, I'd consider bidding, but the cost to ship to the US was quite a bit much.

Ohmy gosh.. I see her! Poor baby!
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Makie-Doll-/191517411544?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2c9753c8d8 (for those curious)

I feel so sorry for her.

The one I had my eye on was the cocoa with the long black hair. She has a certain exotic beauty to her and oh maaan...

I don't think I have the money right now though. Which is probably a good thing.

I failed to tell husband I ordered Fizz too *snort* it just sorta slipped my mind/never came up. Hopefully he won't be too annoyed with me. It IS my money to do with as I please, but i feel a but naughty not telling him.

I am though half tempted to just put her on the shelf and see if he notices her ahahhah.

Oh how sad she is up for sale again - at least at a reduced price...

Aha, a doll will be 'sneaking' into the house...I don't think you are alone in doing that, nor feeling the guilt either!

There's been a bid! It wasn't me. But I'm glad she's going somewhere she'll be loved.

Lol, that was me. ^_~

I decided to place a bid on her for the minimum amount, even with the shipping, it works out to a little less than buying one from MakieLabs.
According to the money converter I used, anyway.

Besides, this one really needs a home.

I've placed my bid and I'm going to leave it up to fate, if someone outbids me then she was meant to be theirs.

If not, then maybe I'll have a sweet little girl to wear all those pretty little dresses I bought when I thought Fen was going to be a girl. Smile
Rayne refuses to wear them, she insists they are little girl clothes, not something a young woman going to college would wear. Very Happy

Regardless, even if she turns out to be another boy, she or he will have a forever home here. ^_^

Aww...hope you get her...I think she will be a girly girl by the looks of her, but you just never know do you?  Good luck!

Aww, my heart was going that way too, JRyu. I was waiting for the price to drop, though, because if I can spend that much, then I need to bring Terry home. We just lost her namesake, so I'm really wanting to bring the Makie version home.

I'm sure that little blonde girl would love coming home to you, and we will all like to meet her. It's really sad for me to think about unwanted toys too. But second chances!

DHL just arrived... on... on a sunday... what?
A white unmarked van pulled up and out popped a guy in a dhl uniform with a familiar looking tube shaped parcel.

FIZZ IS HERE!

I'm so surprised. DHL don't usually deliver weekends, what on earth?

Eeeek! So this is awesome, fizz is here she's here she's here! *jumps around*

That's great news p_m! Very Happy

Lol, I guess Fizz was really in a hurry to get home, if she was able to persuade DHL to drop her off on Sunday. Wink She just wasn't putting up with any of their "We don't deliver on weekends." nonsense!

Maybe she knew about your migraine the other day, and decided you needed her ASAP. ^_^

Lol, now why do I get the feeling that Fizz is one tough little cookie, a no nonsense, take charge kind of gal! ^_~

hahah she's so cute, that's what she is. I found some absolutely fantastic little boots for her in my stash as well. I've got to find some earrings and do her faceup but right now we gotta go grocery shopping.
but even with just her default faceup she's got such a cute little imp face like.. omg. i'm delighted with her. 

I'll get photos this evening to share, and i'm sure she'll make herself known over the course of the evening.

Hurray for Fizz! And hurray for the power of Makie persuasion! No doubt she has a strong personality, if she got the DHL driver to bring her home on a Sunday! She'll be a handfull! Awesome!
It's like JRyu said: "She just wasn't putting up with any of their "We don't deliver on weekends." nonsense!"


I can totally see her, hand on her hips, the other pointing and telling them to "hurry up, slackers! I need to be home before lunch time!"


Once she feels up to it, we would love to see her in the nylon! Pictures please  Very Happy

That auction ended at £70!? I was surprised, I didn't realise the Makies would actually retain their resale. Someone must have really liked her.

Nope, someone outbid me.
I placed a second bid after they outbid me the first time..... I decided I could afford go a little higher.

Then too, I wanted to make sure it wasn't just some bored jerk randomly bidding items up for a lark, with no real interest in actually winning the item.

Hopefully, the person who won her really fell in love with her, just had to have her, and she'll have her loving, forever home now. Smile

Here's hoping! I was really surprised she went for her full retail, I was not expecting that at all.

Me neither--I didn't pay that much for both my classics combined. Now I feel I got very lucky. I keep watching, hoping to pick up a pistachio Makie. Or another classic.

I was surprised she went for retail too. Partly because she was listed for buy it now for retail twice before being discounted. Proof that auction style listings have sway I guess.
I would love to pick up a classic boy. It is all timing and funds I guess :-)
