I ALMOST NEVER USE LIVEJOURNAL ANYMORE

I used to do a lot of business and stuff on here, but i'm moved almost entirely to tumblr. That is where i will open up for commissions and stuff, so if that's something you want to keep up with, you'll have to go there.
I would appreciate it if you didn't send me PM's on here, since it isn't a very reliable way to contact me, i don't really trust livejournal with getting all my messages to me.

I don't want to be getting a million emails asking me when/if i'm open for commissions, since i usually don't know the answer to that, and i'm generally not open for them. My default answer will usually be "i'm not open right now, and i'll probably be open sometime next month"
BUT if you have a question that that is not the answer to, you can email me at cactus.joe at gmail dot com. otherwise, check out my tumblr blog linked above, and check out the links on the sidebar, because i think i have some more specific info on commissions and junk there.
thanks!

august commissions

Hello everyone! welcome to my last commissions before school starts! after this there will only be two or three slots every month, and depending on what kind of working area i'll have up at school (i still don't know ;0;) this may be the last time until next april i'll be offering big plush.
that being said, i'm opening 6 slots for either a 6 inch, $200 plush, or a 1-2' $300-$375 plush. each of these slots can be claimed for either of those plush, which means i may have 6 big plush to make this month, or no big plush at all, or any combination of the two, depending on what people want. ALSO i'll have four slots that can either be for dress up animal style plush, or mini (minky or teddy bear jointed) plush. a lot of options, i hope that's all not too confusing!

pricing, rules, and general payment into under cutCollapse )


More commissions! but a little different.


hey everyone! i've got some commission slots for y'all that i will try to have finished by early august. as the title says, i'm doing things a little differently than usual.
here's what i'm offering this month:
4 slots for either $200, 6 inch plush, OR $300-$375 big, 1-1.5 foot plush. which means there aren't any slots that are just dedicated to one or the other. they may end up being four 6 inch plush, or four big plush, or two of each, or whatever other combinations there are.
and the other kind of plush i'm offering i call "dress up animals" because i'm not very good at naming things. i've been making them for my etsy shop lately, and figured i'd open some slots for custom ones this month. these are IN THE PLACE OF or INSTEAD of mini plush this month. they will probably come back soon, but i just want to take a little break from making them because i just don't have a lot of fun making a bunch of mini plush haha
SO WITH THAT SAID here are all the rules and pictures and payment infos

Plush for miles

hey everyone, more commissions here, ripe for the pickins.
this month i'm opening six ~6" plush slots, four mini plush slots, and one big (about 1.5 foot) plush slot. info under the cut
(sorry there's a lot of text to read :( i just like to try and cover everything)
more examples can be found at my sewing tumblr
prices, rules, etcCollapse )

more commissions!

alrigghhttttt, summer commissions #2! i hope you guys don't get sick of my commission posts, because they're going to be this frequent until september haha
ok so this month i'm going to open 6 6 inch commissions at $200 each, 5 mini commissions at $40 each, and i'm going to try a new thing this month that may or may not become a regular thing, i'm going to open one 1-2 foot commission with a base price of $300 that will go up depending on complexity. (or down if it's something super simple like a ditto or voltorb or something but basically the base price is $300). $370 will be the highest price for something super complex. i don't know how popular this slot will be or how fast it will go so i'm just trying to give you a ballpark range so you can claim the slot without losing out trying to get quotes and stuff first haha.
but if there's enough people wanting this slot this time around i'll open one of these every month.
ok here are the rules:
~6" plush


  • they are $200 each

  • if you are in the US the total with shipping will be $204, and outside of the US the total will be $216.

  • reply to the appropriate thread to claim a slot

  • i can make just about anything with this slot, unless it is crazy complicated and has too many details to fit into this size of plush. but in that case i am happy to make a simplified style like pokedoll or something

  • I'M NOT LIMITED TO POKEMON! i love to make people's OC's. and i love to do pet portraits too!

  • i'm happy to make ANY style you can think up. i'm not limited to pokedoll or canvas or pokemon time styles, but those are definitely options.

  • i need at least some kind of reference, (results from a google image search is just fine) and if you feel so inclined to draw a turnaround for me that would be fabulous! but not required.

  • if you want a specific size (like you want it to fit in with your pokedoll/canvas plush collection so you want it a little smaller than 6", or you want it to be as big as the 6" size restraint will allow) just let me know. otherwise i'll decide. (i usually try to make pokedoll style ones fit the pokedoll size, and otherwise i make it either 6 inches long or 6 inches tall)

  • basically 6 inches means when i'm finished it will fit in the 6x6x6 shipping boxes i have for them. so if making it 6 inches tall will make it a foot long i'll make it a little shorter than 6 inches. hope that all makes sense haha

mini plush slots (comments have bulbasaur icon for distinction, sorry for any confusion)


  • they are each $40

  • i can make two different styles (both shown above) either mini minky plush or mini teddy bear style plush

  • please reply to thread to claim a slot

  • both styles are limited due to size, which means i am only able to do little bead eyes on these guys, and there are some designs i may not be able to do due to difficulty. i am always willing to simplify things though if you're ok with sacrificing some details ;)

  • also, the fabric i have for the teddy bear miniatures has limited color selection, so i may not be able to make some things because of that too. i have a whole bunch of minky colors of course, so if your choice doesn't work in teddy bear style i can always make it with minky ;)

  • all pkmncollector community rules apply

  • if you claim a slot and then find out that i won't be able to make what you were hoping for, i won't give you negative feedback if you no longer want the slot. i understand that these slots can be very time sensitive and sometimes there's no time to discuss designs at length before the slots are gone. but i appreciate it if you are certain you want the slot before claiming it- i don't want people cancelling all over the place willy-nilly

  • feel free to ask me any questions!

big plush slot


  • price depends on complexity of the plush

  • size also kind of depends on the complexity. this slot is for a plush that is about 1 foot tall, but if you want something that is less complicated i can make it bigger instead of cheaper, or if it is sitting and is one foot tall it'll obviously be bigger if it were standing (if it's that kind of plush) etc.

  • basically all of this stuff is up for negotiation so we'll talk abut it.

  • base price is $300

  • highest price is $370

  • SHIPPING will be $10 inside the US and $40 outside of the US. i would appreciate if you paid for the shipping when i'm done with the plush even if you paid for the rest of the cost up front, since that way it's just easier to keep my shipping and supplies money straight. if you have to pay it all up front though that's ok.

  • feel free to ask any questions you might have!

payment:

  • i accept paypal only

  • for the bigger slots i require at least $50 up front before i start, (that includes any sketches you want me to do) the mini slots i require full payment before i start

  • the rest of the payment you can split up however you would like, but i require you be able to pay me in full either within a month of your first payment, or by the time i finish your plush, whichever later.

  • if you pay the whole price up front i will put your plush at the front of the line!

  • make sure you know what you want in a timely manner! i'm ok if you claim a slot and then need a few days to decide what you want me to make, but i would really appreciate it if you could decide by about a week. it's a bummer to already have payment and everything and then just be stuck because you haven't told me what you want me to make. if it's going to take you longer than a couple of weeks to get back to me with what you want, don't claim a slot yet. i'm going to be opening at least 5 slots of each every month through august. you'll have plenty of chances ;)


SHIPPING
because of raised international shipping costs, if you are outside of the US shipping will be an extra $16 for regular first class shipping, and $4 within the US for first class with tracking. if you want any higher than that you'll have to pay more, and i think the minimum cost for international with tracking is something like $40.

summer commissions finally!

i'm out of school for the summer! which means i can take a whole bunch more commissions than i have been, including mini plush again :)
so this month i'm opening 5 $200 6" inch slots, and 5 $40 miniature teddy bear or minky slots :)



5 mini slots:

*they are each $40
*please reply to thread to claim a slot

wee commissions

Right now i'm opening two 6 inch slots for $200 each. the last few commissions i've done have been kind of slow going since i've been in school, but i'm ALMOST DONE! which means the turnaround for these ones will be a month at the longest, bit probably faster! and once i'm done i'll be opening some more right up, including miniature plush, so if that's what you're interested in, hang tight!

JUST SO YOU KNOW

for some reason i am not getting any emails from livejournal notifying me of messages and comments and stuff. i'm going to try to check everything every day but i might miss something. (especially comments!)
so if it's been a while and i haven't replied to your message, feel free to just email me at cactus.joe@gmail.com. don't be worried about sending multiple messages! i would rather get three messages and see all of them than get one message that i completely miss ;)

~~commissions~~~
