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 (Although I am not currently accepting fursuit commissions.)

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.

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

Bat embroidery by Bladespark
Bat embroidery
Another comparison of the new embroidery with the old applique, this time a couple of batponies.  Both of these will be for sale at Bronycon, with the older one slightly discounted. :3

Woo, embroidery! by Bladespark
Woo, embroidery!
Posted this as a kickstarter update a while back, but I might as well put it here, too.

I still occasionally want to throw the embroidery machine out the window (augh! so many ways it can screw things up!) but I'm slowly getting the hang of it, and I have to admit that embroidered cutie marks look WAY sharper than applique ones, as this little picture demonstrates.  On the left is a brand new Luna beanie with an embroidered cutie mark, on the right an older Luna Loonakit with an applique cutie mark.

(I did still applique the black to her butt on the new one, as I'd have to 100% redesign my beanie pattern to let me embroider the black too, and the show has shown us that the black is a natural marking and the moon itself the cutie mark, so I like having the black be minky.  Also on larger Lunas, the area to embroider would be stupidly huge, even for my big machine, so it really wouldn't work.  Anyhow, I like it better this way, and I should probably shut up now.)

So today is my birthday (that's not the announcement), and I keep forgetting that it is and then being reminded.  I celebrated it on Wednesday, because too much is going on this weekend.

One thing that went on this weekend was that I got a positive pregnancy test*.

Yep.   Baby.  Baby is a thing that will be happening.  I am pretty excited, needless to say.  

This will affect my sewing business a bit, though.  Assuming that it's a normal pregnancy, nothing goes wrong, I don't need to be put on bed rest, etc. I should be able to finish all my current commissions pretty much as scheduled.  The baby is due in March, which coincidentally is when my commission list is full until.  Pregnancy itself won't keep me from sewing, so all those projects should get done.  Any future projects that people commission going forward, though, will be happening during "brand new baby that I need to care for" time, and thus I will be unable to offer any guaranteed deadlines of any kind.  

I will still be taking commissions, and I will still guarantee that they'll be finished eventually, but I have no idea how much actual work time I'll have and how much time the baby will suck up, and how long it'll be before I have the energy to do anything like my normal work load.  I don't make promises I can't keep, so I just won't be promising any deadlines at all for some time.

Anyhow, this is still pretty awesome, even if it is going to turn my life upside down.  But I figured I should let people know. :3

*A few of you may be confused because I have answered to "he" and "him" and so on.  I am "genderqueer", to use the simplest possible term for it.  I'm totally happy with people assuming I'm male, I feel very masculine most of the time.  Right now, for obvious reasons, I'm feeling more like a woman than usual.  :D  But male pronouns are still fine.  Or female.  Either way, really, I don't mind.
A furry suit by Bladespark
A furry suit
But not a fursuit.  :D  (Don't ask me why, I just make 'em, but I do love the fabric this is done in.  It's super soft and also super pretty.)

A whole lotta chaos by Bladespark
A whole lotta chaos
This is a ten foot long Discord plush. :D  It will be finished, stuffed to be floppy so you can wrap it around you, and put up for auction on Saturday at Bronycon.
