Mail issues

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 28, 2014, 3:14 PM


AND GUESS WHO HAD THREE MORE PACKAGES LOST IN THE MAIL?! Two of them I was receiving one I was sending. Two fabric orders (incoming) and one plush (outgoing). I've been in touch with the buyer but I have no choice but to remake the item. All lost in the span of ONE week. I wish I were joking. When it rains it motherfucking pours.

Update: Only two packages have been lost! One of the incoming ones was at the post office but I was never left a notice about it and the tracking never updated to tell me it was at the post office. Luckily my mail lady knows me now and is extremely helpful.
As for the fabric, it got lost in a warehouse in the same state it originated from. But fabric.com was great and gave me a refund. I assume they've also called UPS to have the fabric sent back to them if it's officially found. :iconbakufoon: was a godsend and happened to have the colors I needed on hand and wasn't going to use them. So I dropped by and bought it from her. It's really fortunate to have another pony crafter local to me that uses the same quality I try to put into my pieces. I'm very excited to be sharing a table with her at NebrasKon and hopefully at future cons down the road too. her work speaks for itself and I must say if you haven't seen it in person, you should.

Anywho that being said it's back to the grindstone. On momentary hiatus to make NebrasKon stock but after the con I'll be finishing up the parasprite and foalsitter candence for my Canadian brony (and then posting a group shot of all the wonderful things he ordered--Luna and the cube pony have been keeping me company in the kitchen) and Nico who has been needing his chest for a month now. After those are done we move on to the second wave of orders which are all beanie orders. Now that I have my sage in hand, Twitch will be first.
Once all commissions are finally cleared I will not be accepting new ones for a little while or I will only accept orders two at time to compensate for my awful luck and inability to get these out in a timely fashion. I'm hoping with better organization and time management I can avoid fiascos and year-long waiting in the future. But I thank everyone for being so patient with me.

The stress that never ends!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 13, 2014, 6:24 PM


I swear -_-; It just keeps building and building and building. Trying to put in as much overtime as humanly possible with work because I desperately need it. I couldn't work the first 10 days of the month because the internet guy couldn't get out here until the 9th and then it took a solid 4 hours to actually install the internet so this pay check is tiny and I have so many things to pay since deposits always come with the first bills and they don't send the damn bills until DAYS before you have to pay them so you don't even know how much it's going to be -_-. It's frustrating. I'm sincerely nervous how I'm going to have enough money to pay it. I hate being in these situations. The fact of the matter is, even making above minimum wage isn't enough to really live. And the first month is always the hardest. Just trying to keep pushing through it. Then the queue will resume on the 16th when I can actually dedicate time to sewing again. Excited to get the queue done. I really just want it to be done and the plushies to their new homes so much. I'm so damn stressed out right now.
To top things off I slept on my neck wrong a few nights ago and it's not stopped hurting since. I've been abusing tiger balm to help me cope with the pain and reading a lot of Problem Sleuth in my down time with work. That's been fairly distracting for me.
Anywho, just trying to keep it all together and keep moving forward.

Updates!

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 11, 2014, 6:46 PM


I'm moved in and finally have internet again. I've spoken to the two people who have requested refunds and that's being sent out on the 18th. No one else has come forward about asking for a refund so everyone else I'm assuming is still on the schedule to be sent out this month. If that changes, please let me know asap because depending on how much of the plush has been started a refund may not be possible and I'll just have to finish the plush and send it out.
Again, if there are any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask!

Moving

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 30, 2014, 12:52 PM


I move tomorrow morning. I will NOT have internet until the 6th at the soonest. If you are a customer and need to reach me I'm going to temporarily leave my number here, texting is best. I will use 3G to check DA but I can't really type out long replies and the 3G kind of sucks and it's really hard to use the mobile version of this site so it's best to text me or arrange a time we can talk on the phone itself. I'm getting everything I humanly can from the first commission list done during this week without internet including the Celestia that will be available for sale. The second queue will be started later in the month. Just a heads up there. 
The number is: four-zero-two nine-eight-zero nine-two-nine-nine

Other than that there's not much to say. There's been a lot going on. Even more shit has kind of piled on to the shit sundae but I'm not really supposed to talk about it so I"m not going to. But let's just say if you ever questioned how bad my luck is or how easily things go from bad to worse to worse than that..well..you'd see it quite clearly now. Doing my best to make up for that. I can't express my appreciation for everyone's patience and faith in me. I mean, it really is incredible that you guys have been here for me this entire process.

Commission Information and FAQ

I keep getting asked about my prices/policies so I'm going to buckle and post them publicly. This is subject to change.

1. What can I make?
I don't specialize in any one type of plush. I love new challenges but reserve the right to refuse something I find too far beyond my skill level. I do not offer MSPA plushes aside from fan-trolls and fankids. My favorite thing to make is pillows.

1b. My plush got a tear/a seam popped open! What do I do?
I can fix it if you're willing to ship it out or I can walk you through how to fix it. Even if you have no sewing experience, minor repairs are really straight forward and good to learn how to do as a plushie parent. I'm always happy to help in the most cost efficient way for both of us but really I offer lifetime warranties on my plush. I expect plushes to be well loved and I'm always happy to help fix wear and tear as it occurs :)
2. What materials do I use?
Glacier and Northern lights fleece and 3mm pile minky are my most common fabrics. I do NOT use fireside, anti-pill, or blizzard fleece because I absolutely despise their texture. Yes, fleece items WILL pill over time, it's inevitable but I'd rather let them have some time unpilled instead of buying my fabric "pre pilled" like the other fleeces virtually are. I stuff my items with poly pellets and polyfill. My plushes are usually stuffed medium-firm to extra firm depending. Beanies are stuffed lighter to make them floppy. As for thread, I don't stick to any one brand. I do NOT buy cheap, however. I only buy from reputable companies.

3. What machines do I use?
My sewing is done on a Singer Protege and my embroidery (not including applique) is on a Brother SE-400. I digitize some of my own embroidery but usually I buy from SoapyBacon and EthePony until I can afford my own copy of Embird.

4. What patterns do I use?
I draft my own patterns. I do not sell my patterns.

5. Do I do requests?
Yes, but being a 3D artist that doesn't necessarily mean what you think it means. For starters, I LOVE new ideas so I don't mind people giving me ideas! It doesn't mean I'm actually going to do them, though, keep that in mind. Furthermore, I RARELY give the plush away to the person who requested it. They can pay for it, but unless I'm doing a giveaway (which I will be soon) I do not give items away EVEN IF YOU DREW THE DESIGN OUT FOR ME. I'll credit you for the design but I don't usually give my things away. It's just too costly for me in terms of shipping. So please, if you want to request something bare this in mind!

6. I don't like you. You're a bitch.
Yes. Yes I am. No one's asking you to stick around.

7. Why did you report me to WhatPumpkin?
Likely because you were selling something Andew Hussie has EXPRESSLY asked us not to tell. Creating these items is fine but the sale of MSPA 3D items or 2D prints is strictly forbidden without Andrew Hussie's permission. This includes cosplay (even used) items. If you'd like links to the original posts detailing the specifics I'm happy to send them. I do not go out of my way to find rule violators, but I DO report them when I see them and I DO inform every con I attend's artist alley and vendor head about these rules so they can properly police the merchandise. If I see you selling illegal items at a con I will photograph your table and send it in. I'm sorry but under the table sales are not kosher either. PLEASE BARE IN MIND THERE ARE LOOPHOLES such as color zodiac signs if not advertised as Homestuck names. It's a poor loophole to take advantage of but it's technically legal. Please do not report these people.

8. Why do you always tell people to have a wonderful day?
Because I genuinely want people to have a good day? I mean if you're hell bent on having an awful day than I'm sorry I offended you and you may, of course, correct me! But otherwise be it online or in person, however informal the situation I try to remember to tell everyone I hope they have a wonderful day. It reminds people that someone out there actually gives a shit and wishes them the best. The world needs more of that.

9. Why "Prince of Rage"?
Well, before there was a really wonderful in depth quiz for determining your god tier and before Kurloz was even a character my group were coming up with tiers and prince of rage had a nice ring to it (though to be honest I'm more of an heir or page of rage XD). So I used it for my DA account here. Later I officially became a Thief of Blood but PoR stuck here. And then Kurloz became a character and I guess I stole his title for my username XD

10. How do you do x design/how do you make your plushies/how do you do scalemate hair/etc.?
Well, I take some fabric and I sew it to some other fabric. It's like magic. Only replace magic with common sense.

Additional details:
I AM an occasional smoker, but I only smoke outside. I wash my hands after handling cigarettes so it's unlikely a plush will somehow acquire any smoke. But you can make your own decision there.
I DO have pets. While I try to keep my fabric and sewn items away from them, pet hair gets everywhere. I try to clean up pet hair from any items as best I can but inevitably some will be left. If you are very very allergic you need to let me know in advance so I can set up a temporary work space away from the animals to try to reduce the chance of contamination.
Everything is machine sewn with the exception of finishing details and SOME applique which I do by hand.

Commission Policies:
1. For orders under $100 payment must be received in FULL before work begins. You are not on my schedule until you pay. I will not hold spots.
2.For orders over $100 you may pay in installments as agreed upon by both you and I. Work begins after the first $100 is received and/or enough to cover the materials, whichever is more.
3. I am NOT responsible after I have posted the item for shipment. If the mail carrier looses the package, it's not my fault. All my items come with $50 insurance. If your package gets lost, that's all I can guarentee back to you if you live within the US. You CAN ask for additional insurance, but that cost will be passed on to you.
4. Orders paid for with PayPal or Square have an additional fee.
5. Money orders and checks sent via the mail are not my responsibility. If the money order/check is lost on its way to me the order will not be continued with until it is received. To help combat this PLEASE keep your order stub or get tracking on your letter.
6. Turn around time varies. Holiday seasons are always much slower. 2 weeks AT LEAST is needed for small items. I usually require 1-2 months advance notice of the order.
7. Local people can pick up their order in person if they'd like to forgo the shipping fees but I will not deliver the item myself to your door. Unless maybe bribed with cookies..maybe..
8. I RARELY post images of a finished commission before it arrives at its new home. I don't like spoiling the surprise :B

Refund policy:
I don't offer refunds on completed plushes. You do have to pay to get on my schedule at all, but if there's a long wait time and you want to cancel your order you may do so ONLY before materials have been purchased. If I've already bought the fabric and it's not fabric I can justify having for another order, you will not be refunded. If you were on a payment plan and only made the partial payment, this still applies. Please be certain of your order when you place the order. I understand special circumstances but they are incredibly rare.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I will make this it's own section here sometime this week.

Prices:
These are just for popular items. If you have an inquiry about something else that I've made or that you'd like me to make, just ask! There is no buying obligations in getting a price quote and I will NOT hound you for asking and deciding not to buy. I encourage you to shop around and find the best artisan for your needs at your budget.
These are ONLY GUIDELINES. For the specific pony, you still need to note me. The complexity of the mane has to be factored in. For example, Sunset Shimmer only has two colors in her mane but she's incredibly difficult to sew and hence I charge $95 for her for all the extra time she takes.
PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING. SHIPPING DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE. OUTSIDE THE US SHIPPING IS $$$ AND THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT, THE PRICES ARE SET BY THE SHIPPING SERVICE NOT BY ME.

Single color mane-- $75
Double color mane-- $80-$95

I do always accept suggestions, but there is no guarantee it will be worked on. For plush art, I do not send out a plush I've made that was requested/suggested unless it is paid for. Let me know if you have any other questions :)
