So I know some of you have seen my Sylveon headband etc. and I have great news!
With so many people asking if I will be making something like this for sale, the answer is YES.
How do I know how much my ears/set will cost?
You'll send me a note and I will quote you on your set.
How much do the ears range for?
Prices will range from $25 to $125+.. Here's a good example chart..
$25 - Basic Pokemon Ears (EX: Ninetails, Vulpix (NO TUFFS))
$50 - Slight complex ears (EX: Eevee, Pikachu, Pichu, Espeon)
$75 - Almost complex ears (EX: Raichu, Shinx, Vaporeon, Leafeon)
$100 - Complex ears (EX: Minccino, Vulpix WITH tuff, )
$125+ - Super Complex ears (EX: Sylveon, Meowith, Audino)
Why is the cost so high?!
Well, I have to pay for the fabric for one.. which minky isn't cheap. ^_^;; I also have to hand stitch these .. which takes time and I should get paid for my time, just as you should for yours! Plus, if there's multiple fabrics involved, it means more money for such.. along with if there needs to be wiring and/or felt base. This all adds up and comes down to me getting paid very little realistically.
How long do you have to wait?
Depending on if I have the fabric in stock or not, it could take a few days to a couple of weeks. It all depends on if I have the materials on hand or if I have to order more. If I have to order more, then we're talking about shipping from wherever to my home. I cannot get started on your ears until I receive the materials.
I think I want a tail too!
I can definitely do that too! But please keep in mind, tails can range from $25 to $125+ as well. (Same reasons apply, except I have to purchase filling as well now for the tail)
How would my ears/tail attach?
Your ears are on a headband. Depending on the complexity, depends on how wide the headband needs to be. If it is a tail you wish as well, I can either give safety pins to attach, or make a belt loop.
Can my tail and ears be washed in the machine? What do I do if I get them dirty?
NO, they cannot be put in the machine. You MUST wash them by HAND. This means they must air dry as well. Sorry, but some of these could be quite delicate.
How and when do I pay you?
You send your payment before I even start on the ears/tail/set. I will not start unless I have FULL payment. Sorry.
How long is shipping?
That depends on where you are. I will be shipping priority mail with insurance. To which YOU are responsible for paying. It could take 2-3 days and for international packages, it could take 7-10 or more! It all depends on where you are and your mailing system as well.
If you should have ANY more questions, please don't hesitate to ask~!
