a.k.a. I can't put a custom info box on my profile, so I'm making it a journal entry instead....Is this really the first journal entry I've written since 2014? Man, time flies. Here's my long overdue journal entry about custom work.
I take custom commissions for plushies. I like to do fan plushies mostly from video games and anime, or original characters, but I'll consider anything. My plushies are made out of mostly synthetic fleece, though if you want a human with peach colored skin, the only material I can find locally in that color is felt (pretty nice felt, though). If your plushie has a face, it'll probably be done by machine embroidery with patterns made by me.
The amount of orders I take on is based on how many customs I'm already working on, plus whatever non-custom orders I need to fulfill. It's first-come-first-served, and it also takes me anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks to make your plushie. If I'm too busy to take your order, I'll let you know the earliest date I can start working on it, and then you can decide whether that's okay with you.
Here's a link to a gallery folder containing some of the orders I've done for others: link
Humans and humanoids
- Usually in more of a chibi-style (big head, little body)
- Fleece hair and clothing
- Accessories and extra features possible
- Of all kinds, real and imaginary
- If your animal's species doesn't exist in real life, I need at least one good reference picture (but more from different angles would be helpful)
- Depends on whether I can figure out the pattern- note me and I can tell you whether or not it's possible.
Price varies depending on size, complexity, and whether I've already made a pattern that I can reuse for your plushie. Most of my plushies are about 9 to 10 inches tall, and most of my stuff runs in the $50 to $100 (USD) depending on how complicated your request is. If you want something smaller or larger, the price will reflect that.
For humanoid plushies, the price largely depends on how difficult the character's outfit and face is to make, and if you want them to have additional accessories and features. For other plushies, it's based on how complex the pattern is.
Shipping depends on whether you're outside the US or not, how large/heavy your order is, if you want priority, and if I need to buy insurance. Within the US, it's usually between $4 to $10, while outside the US, between $25 to $40.
I prefer to take my commissions through Etsy (you can use Paypal there). Let me know if you have a problem with that for whatever reason.
Just send me a note! Useful info to include- detailed description, reference pictures, size, any deadlines, what country you live in, and any other info you think is relevant. I'm a friendly person, so don't be shy!
