:wave: Spring's just around the corner! I'm so tired from the time change. :sleep: Anyway, here's just a quick update on things:

:bulletblue: Etsy re-stock stuff is on hold since I'm actually working on some awesome Ghibli adopt-a-project stuff! Stay tuned for two other ghibli additions to my gallery. On a sidenote, has anyone seen The Tale of Princess Kaguya? Friggin' awesome movie! I really recommend it.

:bulletyellow: Anime North crafter's corner: confirmed! :D I'll be tabling with whitefrosty and hopefully seated next to MuneCandC . I'm also going to Ottawa Comic Con (thanks to mune as well). :)
Applications for ConBravo are up and I was debating whether to try out or not. :/ The con's not that huge and I'm still in school in the summer, so it might not be feasible. Otakuthon is also a huge maybe since I'll still be in school during that time.

:bulletblue: This being said, commissions won't be open at all this spring. I've got a ridiculous load a school work, and after I finish the ghibli commissions, I gotta start thinking of con merch. Any suggestions are always welcome. I plan on tackling stuff from Haikyuu, Free!, Kuroko no Basuke, Yowapeda, Shingeki no Kyojin, Psychopass, Durarara, maybe Fairy Tail, Tokyo Ghoul, Magi, and of course Ghibli, AtLA/LoK.

Bleach has been hurting my heart lately. Not sure if I have the courage to make any characters for the con this year.

Hope you've all been doing well! :D:peace:

FAQ

If I don't answer your question, it's probably because it's in this FAQ, so please read!

What do you use to make the hair?
So far, I mainly use felt.

How do you do it?
I cut a myriad of pieces of felt, and hot glue them onto the head. I have techniques to create volume; you can read the guide here: www.jlauportfolio.com/hairtuto…

Are the eyes hand painted?
Yes! See my tutorial for more info.

Do you make your own patterns?
Indeed I do, and always have. I can't seem to follow someone else's blueprints. My pattern-making tutorial can be found here: pheleon.deviantart.com/art/How…

Can you post a plushie pattern?
I have one here: fav.me/d1vmo2q .

Can you post a different plushie pattern?
Sorry, but no. Patterns are a plushmaker's lineart.

What material do you use for the body of the plushie?
Mostly, I use lycra because it's smooth the paint on. However, I also use craft velour and bucksuede on the occasion.

How can your plushies free-stand?
The ones who can are generally the proportional ones. Although, the main factor is that the body parts are aligned with their center of gravity; something as small as the foot being too forward may disable them from keeping balance.

How long does it take you to complete a plush?
It depends. If I really work hard, I can complete 2~3 10" plushies in a day. (but that's when I'm constantly working, and the design isn't that complex)

Are you open for commissions?
Check my journal for updates.

Just wondering, in case you open in the future for commissions. Is it possible to commission non-human plushies from you? Like a Pokemon?
