Ok, so, various things to go over in this journal! It's been a while since I've done a decent update, it's just been really crazy around here.
First off, we now have a discord server: discord.gg/vcWTTkN
This is a Safe for work, DRAMA FREE zone
. Seriously. One warning and then we kick anyone who is in there to cause problems. It's mostly to be used for people showing off what they've made with our parts, or asking for help, or maybe reselling something they ordered but didn't need, etc. But either way, it's not to be used for bullying, or whining, or begging, or anything like that. When you enter the first thing you need to do is post what username you want to be known under, because we'll be setting it as such, and you won't be able to change it to make sure you're not switching it around and confusing people. And if you're a maker and want to be known as one, also give us a link to your website and you'll get that as a role.
Second, please don't forget we now have a ko-fi! ko-fi.com/dreamvisioncreations
We don't do patreon because we don't really believe in making people pay for answers to questions, or to pay us for doing what we want to do. But I have had people ask how to donate to us, so we made the ko-fi. We're mostly using it to buy drinks and snacks for our employees so that they don't have to buy their own but we've only gotten enough to get a couple of 2-liters so far for them. We want them to be able to feel appreciated too, since they are the ones casting most of the items and such.
We currently have a skull mask giveaway going right now on Twitter! I do understand that limits it to Twitter users only and I'm sorry, however in the future we will more than likely be doing it other ways; this is just how we decided to do the first one. What we're trying to do is branch out further to get our name out there, and it's a lot faster and easier to hit the 'retweet' button than it is to make a whole other journal on FA/DA. The drawing is going to be taking place on September 4th (Tuesday) and all you have to do is comment on my original post on Twitter about the skull giveaway and if your name is chosen, you only have to pay shipping and get to pick one of our three masks.
New resin blank styles! So within the last two months or so we've released a bear, a Jurassic World Velociraptor, and today a corvid blank that could be used for a number of species of birds. We have a parakeet blank being molded now, and a finch/sparrow right behind that. And now Flurry is working on a saber-toothed big cat and a Wickerbeast(with permission). Jawsets/tongues/ears will be made for all appropriate blanks, but they'll be coming along when we get around to them; we have no set dates. If you guys are interested in seeing WIP's of all of the new sculpts and products coming to the store, you can follow us on Twitter where it's all posted.
I just don't have time to do updates on twitter/FA/DA for everything, so all WIP's go to twitter, all finished items in the store go to DA/FA. So if you like surprises, then don't worry about it haha.
We still haven't heard from MFF, so no MFF for us this year. We'd been on the waiting list this whole time, but unfortunately we just won't have the time needed to make stock and arrangements to attend this year, so we will not be there. So for the rest of the year we won't be attending any cons.
