|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 "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
9. 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.
10. What is that plush on your business cards?
That's Margaret. She's our mascot. She was inspired by my late grandmother Marge who spent most of her adult life sewing teddy bears. She had a giant collection of Boyds Bears she'd sew and my earliest memory of sewing and plush making came from her. She's been incredibly influential on many areas of my life. I plan to get her signature tattooed on my arm saved from the last letter I ever received from her. "Love, Grandma Bear". I'll have to take a photo of it sometime but I have a stuffed bear she sewed of me called Katie Bear too..so..first OC-sona? XD
11. Some of your DA stamps offend me.
Sorry? I have a FB page for my work if you'd rather go there for strictly business related things. But this is my personal DA hub and if you can't separate my personal values and beliefs from the work I offer through PoR Plushies that says more about you than me.
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.
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 guarantee back to you if you live within the US. You CAN ask for additional insurance, but that cost will be passed on to you. So far this is rare and when it's happened I have provided replacement plush.
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 by a lot.
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
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.
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.
