I am very close to finishing the list of plush adoptions that I opened in fall of 2012 when I was laid off from my full time job. First, I'd like to say thank you so much to everyone that commissioned me in the last year or so! It's been a dream to do art full time and it's been a really exciting and rewarding year focusing on commissions and conventions.
Though this coming year is going to be a bit of a slower pace for me once Baby Forde arrives, I will still be opening a limited number of plush adoptions in the upcoming months to fill my time between now and July. Starting with arrival of baby, I will be on maternity leave from most art, likely for a few weeks but possibly a few months (I haven't done this before, so I have no idea what it will be like! ^__^).
Those who are on the Notification List
have heard from me about plush quotes. I do the quote process in advance of opening so that you know what kind of financial commitment your plush will be. You can get quotes on more than one plush during this process. If you didn't get on the notification list before the quote email went out, just join the notification list now and send me a note so I can give you a quote before I open. There are likely to be only 10-15 openings in this round and will be filled first come, first serve via an online form.
Depending on the level of interest, the slots may fill very quickly. People on the notification list will be receiving advanced information about the date and time of the form opening. I may reserve a few slots to fill at Anime Boston.
For 2014, the base price for plush are:
Small Plush (7-8") start at $95
Large Plush (16-18") start at $175
These are base prices which do not include character specific details like hair style and clothing. Every character will be a difference price and even the same character could have a range of price options based on the details we choose to put in. When you get a quote, there will be a detailed breakdown for each segment of the character. I work with craft velour or dollskin bodies and felt for the outfit and hair. If you choose to have upgraded fabric options, there will be an additional cost for the materials.
Additionally, I am increasing my non-refundable deposit amount from $20 to $40. This is the deposit that you make when your plush moves from the Ordered Wait List to the On Deck list and it is applied to the balance that you owe. (For example: if your plush costs $150 in total, you would make a $40 deposit to move to On Deck. When it's time to start your plush, you would owe a balance of $110.)

If you have any questions about plush adoptions or the process, please let me know in the comments! Thank you all once again so very much for allowing me to make art for you. It's been a great pleasure and I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunities I've had in the last year.
