All foam construction, acrylic eyes, cast silicone nose by DVC, resin teeth by me.
There will be a full suit, around the end of the month, probably.
(So yes, I am still sewing, I am just so incredibly burnt out right now that it's hard to work up any enthusiasm for it.)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org|
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. 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.
