FAQs *updated*

Sat Sep 3, 2011, 10:19 AM
Are your commissions open?
My commissions are pretty much always full. I take 40 slots every 4 months or so, but my slots fill up within seconds after I post that I'm taking new orders

How do I know when you'll be taking order?
I always post a journal update about a week before I open with the date, time and a countdown to when I'll be taking new orders. Just keep an eye out for that!

I messaged you exactly when your commissions opened why didn't I get a slot?
That would be because I get a high volume of notes at that very second, and although I'd love to take all the commission requests I'm only one person and I can only take 40 orders at once to avoid overworking myself.

Do you take point commissions?
Sadly points cannot pay my fabric, so therefore I can't accept point commissions.

How do you make patterns?
I learned how to make patterns by studying patterns that were available for free online and by starting small and simple then working my way up to more complex projects.

Can you give/sell me your patterns?
Sadly I don't give away or sell my patterns. A lot of hard work goes into them, and most of them don't even fit in my scanner anyways lol. Although I do have one tutorial in my gallery right now magnastorm.deviantart.com/art/…

That much for a plush toy??
Handmade plush toys are usually much more expensive than the manufactured ones you buy in stores because a lot more work, time and care goes into each of them. Each of them is unique, and is made to be the highest quality I can offer.

What fabric do you use and where do you get it?
I use minky smooth, which I order from here: minkydelight.com/ , fabricdepot.com/ or theminkyboutique.com

Are you open for trades?
I sometimes will do trades. I'll post a notice whenever I'm interested in some trades

What machine do you use for embroidery?
I have a Baby Lock Ellure plus, and I use Stitch Era Universal to digitize(which is a free software) drawings into embroidery designs.

Hey there! 
I have a question for you that I don't see in the faqs (I haven't looked anywhere else so maybe it has been answered... sorry).
Later on in my life I would like to make cosplay costumes and such.... And I was wondering, what are the copyright laws? like, you make pokemon plushies all the time and ponies and whatnot, are you just, free to make anything as long as you don't say that it is your design? Or did you like, get an agreement with the company or something? :3

I imagine that it costs more if you have to come up with a pattern for something? So custom characters cost more? And the other variable is how hard it is to make? Thanks, I love your cute little plushies. I wish you luck with your business.

The price for a plush depends on size, complexity, and special requests(unique pose, fur instead of minky, etc). I make new patterns for most my commissions, so custom character vs fanart character doesn't really matter.

Your plushies are incredible! Quick question, how long does it take to make a giant plushie, say the Yvetal one? It's incredible!

Thanks! 
Giant plushies take between 40-70 hours to make, depending on how complex they are :)

How fast do you get filled up with commissions when you open them?

They're usually filled instantly. I take 40 commissions each time I re-open and as soon that the clock hits 0 my inbox has a good 50+ requests

So they fill up in one day? Or in a hour?
