Terms Of Service -- Updated 5/18/18




!!*Please read and understand all terms and conditions before contacting me. Your questions may be answered below.*!!



**I am ONE person.  All the work I do is by myself and as such, I am not a factory.  Please keep that in mind :)  Now, on to the terms:

This TOS guide includes the following:
Bullet; Red GENERAL TERMS Bullet; Red 
Bullet; Orange SHIPPING Bullet; Orange 
Bullet; Yellow ARTWORK Bullet; Yellow 
Bullet; Green PRICE GUIDE Bullet; Green 
Bullet; Blue  WARRANTY AND REFUNDS Bullet; Blue 
Bullet; Purple  DO's & DON'Ts Bullet; Purple 



Bullet; Red GENERAL TERMS:
--You must be at least 18 years old to enter into a commission contract with me.
--I have the right to refuse any commission.
--I have the right to terminate any commission at any time if a customer becomes unreasonable or threatening.
--I accept Paypal at this time.
--If you are allergic to latex, please be aware that I may use it.
--Understand that as a commission, I will be using my style and artistic liberty. Please browse my works and make sure I am the right fit for you.
--Please remember that I don't do toony; I strive for a realistic quality in my work. (See gallery)
--I will not directly copy anything in my gallery, as they were all unique commissions belonging to an individual.  Reasonable variations are possible, however.
--Updates to your order will be posted on my Twitter page (@missraptorsfx)  This is the easiest and least time consuming way to inform customers of updates.
--Payment plans are only offered on Fullsuits, Partials, Heads or Bodysuits.  If you desperately need a plan for something else, let's talk about it.
--All final images belong to me.  I may use your piece for promotional materials, business card artwork, etc.
--When you commission from me, you are agreeing to all TOS.
--Pennsylvania residents must add 7% tax to the total cost of commission.

Bullet; Orange SHIPPING:
--All shipping costs are to be paid by the buyer. I cannot give an accurate shipping quote until the project is finished, boxed and ready to go. If you have an account with a service that you wish to use, you MUST tell me beforehand. If you fail to do so, there will be an extra charge. Tracking will be used when available. I prefer UPS/FedEx for smaller items shipped within the US, but larger items such as fullsuits will be shipped via USPS. I am not responsible for any items lost in the mail.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: If shipping outside of the US, I will NOT mark the package as "gift." YOU are responsible for any customs fees when the package gets to your country. Please do not ask me about this. It is illegal to do otherwise.
*IMPORTANT: If you are ordering anything larger than a mask, PLEASE remember that shipping will be expensive.  Some countries are harder to ship to as well. I have NO control over this.  I will ship in as small a box as I can without putting the product at risk of damage, but in some circumstances it just won't work. (Such as wings, HUGE tails or other massive solid projects.) I also keep my mind on making it shipping-friendly; building things so that they CAN ship to you as easily as possible.
--Final payment must be made and cleared before item is shipped. (Shipping costs will be invoiced separately to the final payment.) If the item is not paid in full or contact with customer is lost, the item then becomes my property.
--If the package arrives smashed or damaged, contact me with pictures and info, and we will contact the post office/UPS/FedEx to deal with it.

Bullet; Yellow ARTWORK:
--Artwork/reference images are required.
--I must have clear concept artwork to use as reference. This includes front, back, sides and if needed, top and detail shots.  NO MULTIPLE DESIGNS.  Or be specific!  I cannot stress this enough.  Different shapes of heads, tails, etc are confusing.  If it doesn't matter to you, I'll pick the shape and or design I like best.  Please be as clear and concise as you possibly can; the more details I get from you, the more helpful it is to me.  I know there are many out there that have their characters done by different artists and they can all look very different.  If you want a mash-up of different parts from each art piece, tell me!  Again, just be as specific as you can.
--I will not use other people's concepts as final designs for commissions unless express consent is given by said artist.  This means if you see something you like and want, you cannot "steal" it. I will of course accept concept work you did, or work you have paid to have done of your character.
--NO changes can be made after design finalization. Materials have been ordered and construction has already started.
--There will be a 50$ fee for any artwork done by me.

Bullet; Green PRICE GUIDE Bullet; Green

Bullet; Blue  WARRANTY AND REFUNDS:
--There is a 30 day warranty from receipt of package. For example; something pops out of place, seam or otherwise, I will repair it. Buyer pays shipping both ways. If you attempt to repair it yourself, warranty is void. This does not include misuse, improper handling or normal wear and tear. So take care of your items!
--If for some suitable reason (and I deem it suitable) you wish to return your item, you can do so within the 30 days.  Your refund may be paid in installments minus the deposit and shipping charges.  I then have the right to resell or modify it to my choosing. 

Bullet; Purple  ***Do's and Don'ts:
--Do not leave in hot car or store in direct sun. Heat can destroy plastics at oven-like temperatures. UV light can discolor things over time.
--Do not submerge in water. Electronics inside!
--Do not store anything on top of mask. Avoid crushing.
--Be responsible while wearing a mask. Get a spotter if needed. Do not play in traffic or chase wild animals. I am not responsible for injury caused by roughhousing or horseplay.
--After wearing for long periods of time, let your mask breathe and air out. You can wipe down the inner plastic with mild soap if you wish.
--Handle your mask carefully; a lot of work goes into each one. Do not poke hard at the eyes or eye mesh, over extend the jaw or yank hard on the whiskers. Do not handle the mask by the ears; it could damage their shape. Treat your mask with respect and it will last for years!

_________________


___________________________
****Completion dates:****
--General completion dates will extend to 1 year or less -or more-, depending upon the complexity of the project and
payment plan.  You can pay more than the minimum per month for priority.  I will be in contact with you if any
emergencies or problems (materials, molds or otherwise) arise. You can keep your eye on my Twitter Twitter (@MissRaptorsfx) for progress updates on your order.
IF YOU HAVE A CERTAIN DEADLINE FOR A CONVENTION OR OTHERWISE, PLEASE DISCUSS THIS WITH ME. I
will need to know :)

For shipping overseas (as in, not in the US), I am not sure of the price until it is boxed up and ready to go.  I go to the post office to have it weighed and quoted.

I'm not sure if it's fully glasses compatible, and you do add your own elastic, so it can fit around as long as you add enough.

Hello there! Ive been looking around for a blank resin canine skull, both parts, hinged and springed. I don't know if the cut and hinged blank for 155$ is the actual skull or just a base so I was wondering if you could contact me at drewvv2000@gmail.com because I really need a skull as soon as possible.
I hope to hear from you soon because if not by the end of August I'll have to be buying from someone else..

Hi, I m interested to buy a really big black wolf tail, but really fluffy, and I do not like this one -> fav.me/d6wq23s

I would more see something like this -> fav.me/d7xkxaw ( I know it s not a wolf tail, but still, I don t like the huge wolf tail you did , and my wolf as a really fluffy tail ) 
with this size -> fav.me/d7xkxxh

So I was wondering if it s possible, and if yes, how much time would it take to have the tail ? since, it s huge but it s only the tail 

I might probably commission you, or in may, or next year.

Yuzuna-wolf Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well then, I think I ll be one of the first to commission after july then?
I really would love to have a really big fluffy wolf tail

If you don t mind me asking, how much would be a tail like that with a really dark blue, blended with black (on the end of the tail) ? (And counting the shipping to France , since I don t know how much the shipping of this size of tail cost )

So I already know the price in advance ~ Or it might be torturing me, since I do like to know everything really really in advance x.x

Of course, I Will send everything when you ll be open again and when I ll commission you, I Just would really like to at least know the price please ~

Thanks in advance ~

Are resin blanks only the canine and "small mammals" that are in your gallery? 
Also, what does "hinged" mean? My dictionnary doesn't know that word neither...
Reply
:iconmissraptor:
MissRaptor Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014  Professional
As of right now, yes.  Unless a custom sculpt is ordered.
Hinged means that the jaw is opened up and has the ability to move via a set of hinges for movement.

I noticed you said articulated jaw. Now does that mean the jaw is pose-able or will it move when you move your own jaw? I'm guessing the first, but I just wanted to make sure. ;p May commission you for both me and my husband when we get that kind of cash saved up.
Reply
:iconmissraptor:
MissRaptor Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013  Professional
It won't move when you talk; it's not that sensitive. Getting it that sensitive means a lot of strapping to the face. If you really exaggerate your mouth, it can. Works best with one word answers or short sentences.

I just saw your Wolverine. You are now a must-watch for me, as my character is half-wolverine.

I may have to wait, though, until you accept commissions for creatures other than canines, because though she's half wolverine, she's also half Inostrancevia, and the muzzle would be pretty difficult unless you'd be willing to do a custom base :(

I LOVE how you did the markings on that Wolverine, though. FLAWLESS.

No, I do not have balaclavas either included or sewn in. My reasoning is that they should be washed when they get sweaty and stinky.
My bases are plastic with inner pads and elastic.
