marzipan9 @ : First off we have almost 50 members!! Wheeeee!!! Welcome to all the new people, thanks to everyone whose stayed around!
I was up late last night, and right before I went to bed, someone posted a huge homemade dress sale in pullips. Only one of the dresses caught me eye, it was gorgeous. I put dibs on it, excited, because it was only going to be $5 plus shipping. It's this dress, if you're curious.
It was two frigging o'clock in the morning when I put dibs on the dress, and then I waited another 10 minutes to see if she was still on so we could make arrangements, then I went to bed.
This morning, I get up, find a comment in my inbox with "email me with your info and we'll go from there". Yay, right? Nope, when i checked the post (which had 3 comments, I wanted to see who was interested in something else), she had replied to herself less than an hour after replying to me saying "sorry, someone else could pay immediately." first of all, I won't get that comment, so now I look like an ass emailing her, and second of all, IT WAS FREAKING 2 O'CLOCK IN THE FREAKING MORNING. ~headdesk~
Seriously? I'm not buying anything out of pullips anymore, because the stuff I want without fail gets sold out from under me.
I could understand "hey, I'm sorry, but checking timestamps on comments and emails other person was first" I would totally understand, but "someone else could pay first"? Give me a BREAK, it was TWO IN THE MORNING. It's not like she's located in Europe, either, she's in freaking Louisiana, so it was 2 in the morning (Or checking timestamp and doing the math, after 3 in the morning when she sold that dress out from under me. And if it's going to be "first pay, first serve", it should be mentioned in the entry, because right now I'm just really disappointed, and a little bit angry.

marzipan9 @ : I'm sorry, if you change the wig, the body, the eyes, and add something to the face, that doll is no longer stock. Hellooooooo, just because you don't alter her make-up doesn't make her stock, it makes her face-up stock, and not really even then, because you added eyelashes.
hopefully the "stock" was tongue-in-cheek, or she just forgot the "makeup" part, because this person doesn't seem like too much of a moron. :)

marzipan9 @ : Good Lord, Nina's wig is horrid
...the pictures are cute, the wig is horrible. o.O It makes her forhead look deformed, like her brain is bulging out. Ew!
[edit:] Nope, still makes her forehead look like it's bulging out, and looks even stringier.
Wait, doesn't Nahh-Ato techinically get released today????

marzipan9 @ : WHY do people continue to buy from Magma Heritage? The man has the worst customer service I've ever seen, and several people never got their dolls, or from what I could tell, their money back, either.
(I did buy my Oren from Magma and had no problems, but I paid through PayPal...which I think, honeslty, made all the difference)

wispykitty @ : I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I find this to be really fuckin' rude. Someone asks for help and advice on something they're doing that's obviously frustrating them and all you can do is be all "omg why would you do that?!" Resisting the urge to smack her for her being so rude is quite hard. I just really hate that shit. >.<

wispykitty @ : Honestly!
Oh noes my dolly is mad at me because I can't sew!!
Who the fuck does she expect to care?! I fucking hate these posts! At least show a picture of your lame attempt, or your doll looking pissed off or something. >.<

Look! Look! 5% paypal fees!
I don't know about you guys, but anyone who wants ME to pay THEIR fees automatically does NOT get my buisness, no matter how much I want that item. C'mon, now.

marzipan9 @ : So, the other day, I was meandering though my friends' page, reading. A "sales ad" in the pullips community caught my eye, because it was either the second or third time I'd seen the ad posted.
And you all know the type--hey, buy these clothes/dolls at INFLATED prices, pay insane shipping, oh, and don't forget to pay MY fees, too, okay?
So I was feelling pretty darn snarky that day...pms was raging, okay? And I tend to snark a bit when I feel that way...the last time was when that girl was selling her "MIB" dolls that had been removed from their boxes and dressed in other clothing, and had also been altered from their original states. So, therfor, not mint, and certainly NOT MIB. Because MIB implies (not that it means, but it certainly implies) that the item has never been removed from the box and is in its original state.
I asked the girl why anyone would by a dress they could get at either Target or on Ebay for half the price...and went merrily on my way, not even reading her comment, because, hey, I wasn't out to start a flame war, I just wanted to poke a bit. Posted a happy lil entry in my journal, and was then informed that the post had been deleted. LOL!
So another friend and I were messing around, and we ended up selling the Disney Alice in Wonderland dress for $100, plus $25 for shipping, and don't forget to add 200% for paypal fees. It was a good laugh. I'll repost for your amusement, in case you missed it:
Step right up, step right up! For sale today, we have one Alice in Wonderland dress! Its original owner was trying to sell it for $30 and trying to blindside her potential buyers. However, we have taken that dress, and are now selling it in ABSOLUTELY MINT MINT MINT condition! You would think this dress has NEVER even been taken OUT of the box! It is MIB quality!
That stain, well, that is NOT a stain, it's an original piece of artwork, and is extremely valuable, because it contains something from a very elusive and private couple! Take this as your chance to own a bit of Brad and Angelina--in the form of artwork on an Alice in Wonderland dress!
This artwork does not make it unMint, it makes it BETTER than mint!
Asking $100, plus shipping (since it will be well packed, shipping and handling will be $20), and add 35% for paypal fees.
...and so, out of that post, my_bitchy_pulli was born. evildeadpony suggested a community (affiliated with HER bitchy community, my_bitchy_pony, it's about My Little Pony wankery, go check it out!), and wispykitty gave us our tagline. Eventually, we'll even have an icon! (sorry, I'm stuck on dialup for the moment, and then nefermoon offered to make one, which would totally be awesome)
I'm also thinking of having a small contest, if anyone would be interested--something along the lines of the Ugly Custom contest that was held over at Two Angry Ponies a few years ago. Design an ugly Pullip Custom! We could post the result to the forums, and see how people react. Anyone interested?
And once we get a few entries going, perhaps I'll do a bit of promoting and get us a few more members. :)
