The email informed me that at the moment MakieLabs are having a 25% off sale with Free Shipping to U.K & United States on Makie Dolls!
Bellyache was designed on 5th February 2014 but not made real as there was something a bit off about her so I did some tweaking in the Makie Maker changing her hair and eye colours and deciding on her outfit, and here she is; my redhead, pink skinned girl to be...
While waiting I received another email saying "The Sale has been extended until Midnight on the 4th May"- so there's still time if you're thinking of a purchase.
In keeping with my other Makie Creations Bellyache is also a pointy eared Fairy Folk. I originally designed her with green eyes and long black hair but when I got-a-tweaking I realised red hair and grey eyes suited her so much better also it gives me a chance to try out "freckles" while I'm giving her a face up.
In case you're wondering the reason I've decided that Bellyache will be my last Makie is because the Makie Maker doesn't have that much choice wise in terms of outfits, wigs or eye colours and as I've created twenty six Makies since 2013 I feel like I've pretty much gone as far as I can with the options available.
There have also been a lot of changes with regards to ability to mix and match individual items of clothing and footwear to make your own unique styles for your dolls sadly though this option went out with the "Alpha Makies" as did some of the extra skin tone options that used to be available .
The clothing options now are very sparse and are matched with a pair of shoes so if you don't like a particular item then you either have to lump it in order to have the items you do like or get rid of it and find a completely different item for your doll.
The wig choices are also not so great, I prefer the long ones which out of thirty eight wigs gives a choice of sixteen.
As I'm also not keen on wigs with fringes, this gives me a total of ten to choose from!
Ten doesn't seem such a bad amount but when you rule out the black, blonde and brown wigs that I find kind of boring and also available to buy in many places online, it leaves six to choose from.
The choice between them obviously has to take into account the doll's skin tone - of which there are now only four - white, pink, dark and light brown.
In terms of eye colours their have ever only been a choice of six to choose from.
As Pendle was going to be my one and only Makie Doll and is Fairy Folk I chose black eyes for her.
Like Rainy Daze she will most likely end up with a pair of new glass ones instead.
