Not too happy about it, since I live for the green trees and seeing everything growing.  It's a hard month for me, seeing everything dying.  Trying to keep my head up, though. 
Working through my queue, working on different materials here and there.  A custom sculpt is almost complete, so that's pretty exciting!  I'm working on having a Trello up for clients to watch too.

Hello everyone!
I hope you're all enjoying the greenery! I know I am :)

Ok, updates:

I've updated my Terms of Service and Price Guide. It should be easier to read, as the prices are listed halfway down the page after the important stuff.
Changes:
-Paypal ONLY is going to be used for the moment. No cash/checks/money orders.
-Quotes are now good for 30 days after given.
-Foam shoes ONLY for feetpaws. Can be Crocs or off-brands. Why foam? They are easier to work with. They will fit you instead of fiddling with laces. Most importantly, they can be WASHED. I throw mine in the washer with my suit and you don't have to worry about drying!
-Updates and WIP images will be posted on my Twitter only.
-Pennsylvania residents must add 6% tax to the total cost of commission.  (7% if you're in Allegheny county.)
-Please read the Shipping section.
-Resin blanks will be cast in white only, with the exception of canine noses.
-Loose eye blanks are only offered as painted or unpainted. No "a la carte" LEDs.


I'm working hard to get things done. I'm loving using materials I've never worked with before! I just made an NFT mohawk, and hope to work with that hair again. It's amazing.
I'll be working hard to get gallery pictures up. I have a bunch of finished work I've never posted!

Also gearing up for Anthrocon. Will I see any of you? A good friend is coming down from out of state, so I'm looking forward to that weekend! I'll be going through a lot of caffeine this month!!!
Thank you guys for sticking with me, and I hope to see more interesting projects come in!

Haven't posted since summer last year, so I guess I should announce that I'm not dead!  Twitter is where I'm more active than here or FA.  (Link at bottom)

Ok, so let's bullet point it:
-So, I'm in the process of continuing current projects and finishing them, not to mention getting stuff up on my galleries of some finished projects. 
-Some health issues came up all at once between family members, so worry and anxiety is at a high for me even though as of right now things are okay.  Just keeping fingers crossed.
-Since my Price Sheet and TOS haven't been updated since 2015, I need to revise that and adjust things accordingly.  I can't believe its been that long!
-Please keep in mind the masks I have in my gallery are finished commissions.  As in, sold.  You can of course contact me for a commission though!
-I'm not active on Facebook anymore.  So please don't message me there; you likely won't get an answer.  I realize that saying that HERE isn't helpful, but am doing so in case some of you watch me there.

So, just an update journal since July.  :)

Health update:

After resting my hands for nearly 2 weeks with ice and elevation, things have gotten a little better but not completely.  Halfway through, they started acting up again.  Thank goodness for talk-to-text on my iPad.  Just pressing on the touch screen to type causes my fingers to go tingly and numb.  Even brushing my teeth is difficult.  Yes, they are that sensitive.  Carpal tunnel sucks, and I've never had it this bad before.  At one point, I couldn't even write or draw simple shapes.

I've had to learn how to reach for things differently and how not to strain my hands in a "just resting" period.  I'm still not doing that well at that, because I'm very impatient when it comes to doing things with my hands.  I've worn braces—sometimes days at a time, and done exercises. Sometimes, the exercises would exacerbate the problem. (Which is confusing and maddening.)
I'm working on getting a doctors appointment set up, but it's a bit difficult having no health insurance at the moment.

So what does this mean when it comes to my work?  I'm learning my limits. If this means that I can only work a few hours a day, that's what's going to happen. No more 10+ hours a day for me.  I'm terrified that I might lose dexterity in either or both of my hands.  I will have to take frequent breaks if necessary.  If I have to take a few days off to recover, that's what's going to happen.  Believe me, I'm going to want to keep going—keep sewing, gluing, sculpting, casting.  But I'm going to have to force myself to stop.  It's just not worth it to risk my health.  It's going to be very frustrating for a while.  But I have hope!

I have a small backlog of commissions that I am working on, and I am very thankful to my clients for being so patient.  You guys are awesome.  

Thank you for reading this long journal entry— I know these can be boring, but it's important information that I needed to post.

Well, unfortunately, I had to cancel my dealer table at Anthrocon this year. My carpal tunnel has been so horrible it brought me to tears and has been lasting weeks. So I could only focus on commission work that needed to be completed.  

However, I WILL still be attending! :D
So if you see me in Filth, please don't hesitate to come say hi! (Glomps are fine; she loves hugs! Just make sure I can see you coming first XD )

Gettin' stuff done.
I have a bunch of things to put together for my gallery.  Stuff from Twitter I've finished but haven't had the time to crop the pictures for display.
I have a big deadline for Christmas time, so I'll be busy with that, along with a grey fox and custom sculpt.  
Open for quotes still as well :)

If I haven't, please email me and include your name and project in the subject line.  
Thank you!

Black furred skull mask is still up for grabs!  I'd like to get at least 625$ for it.  A LOT of work went into that baby!

----------------------------------------

Really really busy right now for Halloween.  Trying to get stuff done.  Pulling long hours.  Not dead!
I am much more active on Twitter right now, with posting WIPs and some finished stuff before cropping projects for gallery display.
Please come over and follow me there!

Also, the black furred skull mask with taxidermy eyes is still for sale.  Make an offer for a Halloween gift for yourself!

Would there be any interest in pre-made/pre-designed skull masks?
I was thinking about coming up with a few different paint jobs, illustrating them, and maybe auctioning them off as finished pieces.
Any thoughts?  Specific addons? (Horns/ears etc.)

Well, Anthrocon really great.  I got to suit a lot, made new friends, and made my goal of staying til 2am at the rave (finally!).
It was great hanging out with some fellow suitmakers, and even if I didn't get to make it to everything I wanted, I still had a great year.  I'm glad I was able to attend.  It was really great.  -^_^-

Now, on to another issue.  I have a mask that had no bids at the Art Auction there.  So I will be putting it up for auction on FurBuy in the next few days.  I need to get pics together, etc. 
If you're following me on Facebook or Twitter, you already know the one I'm talking about    ;-P
So go!  Follow me!
twitter.com/Missraptorsfx
www.facebook.com/missraptorsfx…

I will post another journal when it's up and ready for bids.

And run around like a weirdo! (well, that one's an automatic check) ^_^

So facebook is asking for ID to prove my name is my real name on my personal account.  I have a semi-real one, but would like to keep my privacy.

This means I may not be able to run my MissRaptor business account there since you need a personal account first.  So, please, PLEASE do NOT contact me on my business account there. It may be taken down, or won't be able to access it.

 I don't know what to do. All my personal pics may be unobtainable; I set it to private. WHY are they doing this? So lost...

I will update if there are any to update.
And to my surprise, it was very coarse. Which seems misleading, since the swatch I have is pretty normal in terms of texture. Kind of reminds me of mohair teddy bears I think?
Thick, though, so that's nice if it needs shading. But seems lighter in the undercoat? I dunno, it's like it was painted or something. Or maybe I like to nitpick. Well...yeah I do.

Came wrinkled though, so :(

Well, anyway, just to let anyone know if they're going to order that. Still cool though.
Hiya guys!
Waited til the last minute not thinking they'd not sell it anymore, so I'm in a pickle.  -_-

I'm looking for 1.5 - 2 yards of Champagne Teddy fur originally from CRs Crafts (was item number 91012)
If you know of, or have any, and are willing to rush ship it to me, I'd be uber grateful.

I have furs to trade as well, if you're looking for that.

Hit me up on email:
MissRaptor(at)shingfx.com

Or message me over on Twitter:
twitter.com/Missraptorsfx

Thank you!!!
FINALLY DONE. I had to pull some overnight shifts with some sleep deprivation fun, but they're finally ready to be boxed up.
I will be sending shipping invoices out, and will be USING THE PAYPAL SHIPPING ADDRESS LISTED.

PLEASE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IF THAT IS NOT WHERE IT SHOULD BE SHIPPED TO.
I cannot stress this enough. I will need:
Your name
Your address
Your email
What you ordered (I have this written down with your info, but this is just in case.)

If your paypal address listed is the correct place to ship, nothing to worry about. :)


Now, I am working on catching up with commission projects, so please keep an eye on my Twitter. I will post as often as I can.

Thank you ALL who participated in the sale I had on my resin bases, I truly appreciate it! I was not expecting this many. I know I said I would have them done in a week, and I WILL do my best, but the volume I have right now may prevent that. I will definitely post when I've had them all cast, and then start emailing for shipping invoices.
***I won't know shipping until your box is packed up and ready to go, so that will be invoiced separately.***

Will obviously be working on commissions still as well. :)

Casts should all be finished and packed up by the end of next week, at the earliest. I'm getting more orders than I thought (thank you!), so I might have to order more resin. BUT I will be posting that information asap if that happens!
I have a log on who has paid and in order, so that's the order I'll be casting.

SALE INFO:
I'm selling raw casts for 40$ of my resin blanks. (Traditional Canine, Small Mammal, and Big Cat)
That's more than 50% off!!  Please note, the canine skull is NOT on sale (that one is so much work to put together, I just can't.)
I also have a few Toothless scarves left over, so those are up for grabs too. (Check my gallery for the image of the hat/scarf set.)
***I won't know shipping until your box is packed up and ready to go, so that will be invoiced separately.***

Ok, SALE INFO first:
I'm selling raw casts for 40$ of my resin blanks. (Traditional Canine, Small Mammal, and Big Cat)
That's more than 50% off!! Need some emergency funds, so for the next 2 weeks, I'll be having this sale. Please note, the canine skull is NOT on sale (that one is so much work to put together, I just can't.)
I also have a few Toothless scarves left over, so those are up for grabs too. (Check my gallery for the image of the hat/scarf set.)
I won't know shipping until your box is packed up and ready to go, so that will be invoiced separately.
Note me here, or email me: MissRaptor(at)shingfx.com


OK wall of text incoming:

Well, the bad news is, I won't have a dealer's table at Anthrocon this year. I guess I waited too long to register and they filled up super quick. I thought I had time this year, as it seemed last year they still were looking to fill spaces up til about Jan/Feb. Maybe the site wasn't updated then though.
But either way I'm really really sad about it; this would have been my fourth year dealing there, and I've met so many awesome people. And yes, I've already asked about a waiting list, etc. T_T
SO, if you're looking to get a tail, hat or ears from me, hit me up now!

I will be attending though, at least Friday and Saturday. MAYBE Sunday if there's something going on.

It would be GREAT to meet any of my customers if they are going; hit me up and we can chat so I can get a photo with ya!


In other news, I find IMMENSE pleasure in Twitter. I thought I'd hate it, but it turns out it's really fun! A lot of updates, and I'm way more active there than anywhere else. It's a whole lot easier as well when glued to an iPad. Writing journals, etc. is straining and frustrating. Only like to do it on my actual computer. (Which is where I'm happily seated right now) :)
Plus, I'll be posting finished projects there first, then to my galleries (here, DA, Facebook). I still need to crop and put together one more gallery photo and 2 videos.

So come over! Follow me!

****

Things I'm thinking about, but unsure if anyone would partake in/care to see:
--An FAQ (but not things about where I buy fur, materials, etc. That's kind of boring, and easily researched. HOW I use them, MAYBE okay. Trade secrets and all that. Up to my discretion I guess.
--How To videos on...things? There are a lot out there, so making one on how to dremel a mask, or cast something would probably be unnecessary, comparatively. Thinking of timelapse though.
So I dunno, what would you like to see?
Gauging interest, so let me know if you have any ideas, or what you'd like to see, if anything!
