1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Head Sculpt:
SD13 long-leg
  • Face-up artist(s):
    uknown, 4-o'clock-shadow and tummy "hairs" added by me
    Modifications artist(s):
    I bought him Volks tabi feet; aged in a south windowsill until they more closely matched. Also bought new hands since he came only with a pair of "gun" hands.
    Date of acquisition:
    July 2010
    Bought on DOA; I'm the 2nd owner. Most expensive doll I've bought to date.
    Reason for choice:
    I love the F38 face with its irreverent grin. I have no idea how he turned out to be a ne'er-do-well rather than An Urban Cool Guy.
    Best Points:
    Lookit that face. And the sunlight skin tone is just lovely and ages well.
    Worst Points:
    The SD13 body is barely large enough for the large SD Volks heads and he can look bobbleheaded very easily. The posing is kind of basic, and I'm not thrilled with the hand positions available. But hey, older sunlight tone, you scoop up what you can find on the secondary market.
  • Eyes:
    ginarolo glass in purple
    he goes through every black/black-brown/dark-brown long wavy/messy wig I have. Then hides the ones he's tired of.
    Favourite colours:
    All of them. The brighter the better.
    Fashion style(s):
    Relaxed, sloppy, tropical shirts and jeans. Another one running around the house in luridly bright shorts and nothing else.
    Key fashion accessory:
    Carnelian chip necklace or beach-shell necklaces, or other natural stone necklaces.
  • Name story:
    Being on the shorter, stockier SD13 body, and sunlight tone, he just seemed like a Hawaiian fellow to me from the beginning. Makani is a Hawaiian name that means wind, and denotes a free spirit, a wanderer.
    Character age:
    I think he's in his early 30's, but he's not saying.
    Character gender:
    Male, het.
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Makani comes from Hawaii, also the name of the Big Island. Mostly native Hawaiian, he mentions a Japanese grandmother originally from one of the many Kona coffee farm families, and some Portuguese and other European blood further back, around the time sugar cane plantations were started on the islands.

    He's a slacker, a "go with the flow" but determined underachiever who just wants to have enough money to wander around and enjoy life. If he falls in with better-off friends who can help him to enjoy a better grade of life, he's fine with that. And if not - well, there's always a warm beach, the welcoming islands, and a slightly disapproving but accepting family to go back to.
