If you're attending Bronycon and you'd like to buy something at my booth, please bring cash! I will have a Square reader on me, but probably only on the last day, by which time I may be out of whatever it is that you wanted, and the Square reader can be unreliable in a crowded building where the signal is overloaded, so do not depend on it. (I can also take paypal, if you have a smart phone with signal and can show me the confirmation screen, but once again this can't be relied on.)

Always bring cash to conventions. It's not only a way to make certain that a technical difficulty doesn't prevent you from getting that awesome thing you always wanted, it's also a good way to control your budget. Bring what you can afford to spend, when it runs out, stop buying. (But budget generously. Hand made goods aren't cheap!)

So once again, if you're planning on buying something from me at Bronycon, you NEED to bring cash, as I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to take any other form of payment at the convention.

Thanks!

I make fuzzy things. Mostly plushes these days, but also whatever else I happen to feel like trying my hand at. I am always open for commissions, just drop me an e-mail to spark.costumes@gmail.com

You can find more about my work including commissions policies and prices, a larger gallery, and lots of other stuff at my website, www.sparkcostumes.com

If you've commissioned me, you'll find your project listed on my project list here: bladespark.livejournal.com/122…

This is my full time job, not my hobby. So I don't take requests, rarely do trades, don't accept points, don't give away my patterns, etc. I have to pay the rent somehow.

A few more things:

If you say "I want it" I am going to try and sell it to you. :D Selling my stuff is how I make a living. So if you don't want a sales pitch, you might consider using "that's really pretty" as a compliment, rather than "I want".

If you make crude or perverted comments about any of my work, *even* if those comments are about how other people would do perverse things with it, your comments will be removed. I don't want to hear about what you would do, I don't want t hear about how you're the only clean minded one and what everyone *else* would do either. If you're thinking it, *you* are the pervert.

If you make rude comments about my pricing, I'll make snarky replies. See above about this being my full time job. My prices are what they need to be for me to make a (not very good) living at this.

And please don't tell me how I should run my business. I don't need to know what you think I should make, how you think I should price things, or how you think I should do *anything*. Odds are you don't make a full time living making plushes, so you're hardly a qualified expert on how I should go about it. If you think that makes me some kind of snob, I suggest you consider how you felt the last time somebody who didn't know what the hell they were talking about tried to give you advice.

Don't let the above scare you off, I am a very friendly person. I just have a few little pet peeves. :D
