I’ve been saying I’ll do commissions for how many months now? Finally, I actually make the post and will be committing to it!
Just a background info, in case you don’t know me. I’m pretty sure you don’t. So I make plushies, which I call pocket dolls. The story behind it is that during an interview for BBC Sherlock, Benedict said that he wanted to pocket Martin, which then just gave me the desire to have some sort of Pocket Martin for myself as well. So I dove in and tried to make it myself. Through a long trial and error, I finally made a doll that I like! My first doll was Pocket!Bilbo. My time with him didn’t last that long because Martin Fucking Freeman has him. So after that HUGE MOMENT, I then decided to make this my goal in my sorry life, and began to make dolls andgiveit topeoplethat Iloveandadore. But alas, I can’t always give these for free. I need other ways of earning some cash.
So I’m going to trust William Kircher’s advice that I would make fortune if I sell these. Now this is where we start!
I will mostly do fandoms that I’m in, or am familiar with. (i.e. DW, SPN. GoT, Sherlock, Hannibal, TWD, Cabin Pressure, LotR, The Hobbit, etc.) I have the rights to decline order if it’s a fandom I don’t really care about… sorry. I think you’d rather have someone who knows and loves that fandom well than someone who doesn’t and will end up doing a mediocre work on it. Just ask me and I’ll let you know if I’m familiar with the fandom/characters.
For now, No OCs please! I’ll try that one out next time.
When asking for a character and for a specific outfit that they wore in the show, please provide pictures so I can use those as reference. I will do my best to make it as close as possible.
A limit of 2 characters per commissioners. Characters can be from two different fandom, or you can do your OTP as an idea?
PLEASE NOTE: The following characters from The Hobbit are off limits until further notice: Bofur, Bombur, Balin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Gloin, Oin, Thranduil, Bilbo, Thorin, & Smaug (I’m still working on his pattern). Everyone else is available.
Lester Nygaard from FX Fargo (recent)
Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit
Sherlock Holmes from BBC Sherlock (mustache is removable)
Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians & Hiccup from How to train your Dragon (commission example)
Cecil and Carlos the Scientist from Welcome to Night Vale (ONLY EXAMPLE. WTNV IS NOT FOR SALE) (To those previous winners of my giveaway DON’T WORRY I HAVEN’T FORGOT ABOUT YOU)
Basic materials: craft velour for skin, wool felt, cotton velvet/polyester velvet (one of these two i forget) for hair, polyester fiberfill, iron-on fabric transfer, fabric paint, fabric dyes & scraps of fabrics that I get from work.
Size of doll is set to 6 1/2 inches.
Doll is 75% hand sewn and 25% machine sewn.
Price for a doll is *$50 USD + shipping (depending on your location)
*Additional small charges may apply, depending on the level of complexity of the character. i.e. Thorin, Dwalin.
Paypal only please!
We can talk about payment in private.
I work weekdays, so I only have time to make these in some evenings and over the weekend. So please keep that in mind, especially if you request for a due date! I will make sure to send this out to you once it’s complete.
If you wish, I will send you WIP pictures via email as I make them.
As for now, there will be 5421 slot open left! . I’m gonna be focused on making these dolls, so hopefully I can do these quick and open up commission again!
Comments? Questions? Concerns? Interested? Feel free to leave a message in my askbox, or please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re not interested, then that’s cool too! If you signal boost this out, then that would be super awesome of you ;u;
All slots have been taken! Thank you for the signal boost, guys ;;w;; You guys are just lovely!
For the AU, how do you know what group of stone you are? What if there are no other stones like yours?
It just depends on the stone. So far here are the Order of Amulet branches planned out:
Order of Natural Gems (organic gems): Amber Ammolite Coral Ivory Jet Pearl Petrified wood
Order of Feldspars: Andesine Amazonite Labradorite Spectrolite Moonstone Sunstone
Order of Quartz: Agate Amethyst Aventurine Citrine Rose Quartz Chalcedony Onyx Tiger’s-eye
If you don’t see your gem type up there, it’s possible it has it’s own order. (Order of Garnet, Order of Peridot, Order of Emerald, etc…)
Being the only person with a certain gem type can be a good thing, though. If you wanted to be in on the au and collaborate, you can represent that branch and figure out the details for it yourself. If you want to get involved with other people you can just make another gemsona OC for a different gem type.
This project’s main goal is to snuff out the competitive stuff going on in the gemsona fandom when it comes to gem types- like people upset that there’s a really popular gemsona with a gem type they really wanted to use for theirs. So make all the gemsonas you want! I’m going to be making + posting like 5 or 6 new gemsona OCs soon and working more on this au to get everything prepared for collaborations. I’ll be working on the Order of Natural Gems & Order of Feldspars first of all, since Dorey is a feldspar and the organic gems are pretty important to the au’s plot.
I should be doing a comic with Madi about the OoA au for gemsona week! It’s going to be fun. I’ll be planning skype chats for individual Orders + other chat options, so if you’re interested please sign up for skype so you have access to the chats and can get involved.
If you’re interested in knowing more, everything I’ve written about the au so far is in this tag. Feel free to track the “order of amulets” tag if you want to keep up on stuff.
I’m bringing some of my work from jasjuliet over onto it at the moment, but soon, I’ll finally be sharing some of my graphic design work as well as in process/final pieces there first without the excess commentary of this blog. Jasjuliet isn’t going anywhere, she just made a tidier space for people to see her work with a bit less rage over Bay turtles and maybe more WIPs, step-by-steps, and an occasional tutorial!
I hope to see you there, friends, and would appreciate help spreading the word :)
Let me repeat an old point. It speaks volumesabout how much women (and POC) do love superheros (and similar white cis male dominated media) that we continue to be fans or love the concept while the content, fandom, and creators so frequently keep doing their damnedest to make us feel unwelcome.
