Hello there! :wave: I haven't updated my journal in forever. :faint:

First off, since Valentine's Day is around the corner and I don't have time to make something special (like the Grimm and Ulqui last year), I'm offering FREE SHIPPING (to Canada/USA) for any of the children on my Etsy account--> www.etsy.com/shop/pheleon
You must enter the coupon code: plushlove , which I think will be in a box at the checkout. This is the first time I've ever offered a coupon, so I hope it works!
The coupon expires on February 21st 2014, so take advantage of it if you'd like to adopt any of those plushies.

On Anime North news... Crafter's Corner registration is at the end of the month, so I'll know if I managed to get in by the first week of March.  But even if I don't have a table, I still plan on going to the con for at least one of the days. :) I might even do another cosplay thing...

Finally, on commission news... I've been rather disorganised this past round since I wanted to eliminate the 2~3 months wait despite already paying in full (some commissioners had experienced that last summer), so I kind of turned the system into a waiting list. The plus side is that people don't have to wait as long between paying and receiving the plush...but the downside is that I have yet to finalize stuff with the people on my waitlist since I've been concentrating on what's most current; my correspondance has been pretty terrible as a result.  I still have people to contact, so I'll be in touch eventually. My study break is from the 15th-23rd so I intend on catching up on all of the things then.  

For the spring round, I think I will implement another waiting list, but I'll be more prepared and clear with the expectations. Anyway, I first need to finish my current winter commissions, then figure out my Anime North ones, and if I get into the CC, it'll be artist-alley-merch crunch time.

And on a totally random note: my brother got me a Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon X for Christmas. Is it a crime that I haven't even touched it yet? I just don't have the time for gaming but I heard the game was really good! ^^;

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.

Hi there. I heard that you are friends with kamon-san on DA. I happen to be one of his DA buddies too.

Your plushies are so amazing and cute too! Maybe I might order one from you some time, that is, when they are open again.

Just added you to my watch as well.
