Commissions


Wait times vary, but I typically have a 3-4 week waiting period. Around holidays it can be longer. Send me a note or comment and I can update you on the wait time at that moment, but know until I actually place you on the list the time may change.


How do I get on the waiting list?

Please contact me at my Etsy shop here: artisticgaming.etsy.com. Even if you contact me on Facebook or on here in order to be officially on my list I'll ask you to contact me at my Etsy shop.

How much will XYZ cost?

The absolute minimum of custom orders is $100. This will get you hoods, capes, wings, etc. This is for a doll with the average size of 12" tall.

Use of chains, buttons, gems, charms, etc will be an at cost extra.

Dolls that have unusual shapes, are larger, etc are more expensive and prices given on a case by case basis.

  • Please send me pictures when asking for a price quote. I won't quote you a price on anything without pictures.
  • All price quotes are valid for 2months.
  • All prices are in USD.
  • I won't answer price questions in comments, because prices may change in the future. ^^
  • If you're on my waiting list and I contact you (through Etsy) to begin work on your doll you have 3 days to respond. If no response your spot on the waiting list will be dropped.

Payment

I take payment through Etsy via CC or from Paypal. Payment is needed when I start the doll, not when you are placed on my waiting list. I prefer full payment at the start of your doll, however, I can do payment plans. First payment will be the $45 non-refundable deposit. A doll will not be shipped until full payment is received.

Shipping

Inside the US:
I ship USPS Priority 2day mail. This includes a tracking number and $50 insurance. You can purchase more insurance if you'd like.

Outside of US:
I do ship internationally through USPS. I can't track your package once it leaves the US. Buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. My orders have arrived anywhere from 2weeks to 4weeks.


General FAQ



Do you have patterns?

I have just started to give my patterns away! Most will remain free, because I learned from free patterns. I have never made a pattern before so I'm starting out slow. It takes me time to to translate my weird shorthand into correct terms. So please be patient with me as I make them all available. I have started to do videos as well if you'd like to watch me make dolls. :)

How do you make the armor for your WoW customs?
This is the hardest question to answer that I receive. Mostly because I don't use the same technique for every doll or piece of armor. My next "The Making of.." video will be a WoW custom so you'll be able to see how I do it. I don't have any patterns yet, but it was suggested to me to do a "base doll" pattern, then have little videos showing how to do various armor. I like this idea, but it will take some time to roll it out.

Do you do giveaways?
I would love to do more giveaways! The only giveaway I'm doing at the moment will be for Patreons. More info on that below.

Do you do point commissions?
No I'm sorry. I do not.

Do you go to and sell at cons?

No, not yet. I kinda live in an area that does not have too many cons. I would love to go and will look into doing this more though. I do go to local craft fairs and shows though. Follow me on Facebook for alerts of shows I'm going to.

What yarn do you use?
Colors are a hard thing to find I tell ya. I mostly use Red Heart or I Love This Yarn which is a Hobby Lobby brand. I switch between the two depending on who has the color I need. Both worsted weight.

What hooks do you use?
The hook I use the most is a 4.5mm G Hook. For smaller detailed pieces I typically use a 3.25 or a 3.75.


Go ahead and ask any questions below and I'll add them to the post :) Thanks all!


Patreon?


I just started a Patreon since I'll be doing videos and patterns. Think of Patreon as a monthly subscription. You can choose to donate $5 a month or any amount you'd like.

Patreon donators can submit and vote on requests for pattern dolls. They can be added to the credits of videos. Also, they can receive any paid patterns I release that month for free.

There are many ways to support me and my work. Following me and engaging with me on social media is great motivation. Links below!

Would you be interested in commissioning a written pattern? I can't find one for what I'm looking for an can't afford the cost of a made doll but would happily pay something for a pattern (more than most patterns sell for).

Hey there! Sorry for the late reply. It would depend on the pattern/how complex the design is. I have started to do patterns for a lot of dolls. What did you have in mind out of curiosity?

I am looking to do a Horde Moonkin. I was also interested in any of the WoW patterns you may have already written up (if any or if you are planning to do any). I would be willing to pay you for the patterns. I know you said that you will be offering a lot for free but I know it's time consuming to write patterns since I test hats/shawls/gloves/scarves for 2 Ravelry designers and help them adjust the mistakes in their patterns.

I watched your videos and love them all!!!!
I seriously learn a lot from them :D Pls do more videos as you're crocheting those game related dolls. Details are AMAZING!!
They don't need to be tutorials. Just the making of the dolls would be highly appreciated since i understand how long it must take to film a video ^_^

Again.. love your dolls! Fantastic job on your YT channel! Keep it up :D :D

Oh wow Thank you! XD I'm filming a "making of" video of a WoW Troll custom atm. His outfit is simpler than my others, but I hope it'll be helpful to see. Thank you for the feedback!!
