Are you open for quotes?
A. I am always open for quotes. I will do my best to get back to you asap, but please be patient. Please make sure to include a reference, and what size you are after in your note. For complex characters, I prefer to work in medium to large sizing.
How to pronounce my name
Q. How much is (insert name here) plush?
A.For general pricing see here:
Nazegoreng's Plush Price ListNazegoreng’s Plush Price List
Prices depend on individual plushes, please note me and I can give you a specific price.
PRICES ARE IN AUD (Australian Dollars). This may vary greatly from your currency, please convert if unsure.
To convert AUD (Australian dollars) to USD or another currency, just type "(insert price here) AUD to (insert your currency here)" into google.
I do not take payment in points, only real money
Q. What is a commission?
A. A commission is a custom order made for you, and paid for with real money via paypal. I only open these custom orders at certain times of the year (typically every 4-5 months). These orders are limited so a small number, so not everyone is guaranteed a spot.
Q. Can I commission you?
A. Commissions are CLOSED. COMMISSIONS OPENING FEB 24TH AND 25TH
Please read my commission journal and terms and conditions to learn everything you need to know.
Commissions CLOSEDI am currently not open for custom mask or suit commissions. I will be offering premade masks for sale towards the end of the year, and hoping to have time for custom orders next year. The below information is for custom plush and art doll orders.
Q. What kind of plushes can you make
A. I can make almost any kind of plush. I prefer to work between 10-25" in size, and can make almost any fantasy, animal, anthro or other creature. I can make giant plushes (up to approx 36" but these incur a very high price).
If you are not sure if I can or will make something feel free to send me a note. There's no harm in asking.
I prefer not to do NSFW/adult elements, but you are welcome to contact me to discuss.
Q. Can I get a bulk discount?
A. Unfortunately I do not offer bulk discounts. Commission slots are limited and there are plenty of people willing to pay full price for their plush. It doesn't work in my favour to offer a discount when I could be making a full price plush for someone else.
Q. Can I trade with you?
A. While I would love to trade as much as possible, I simply don't have the time (or finances) to trade with everyone.
I will typically only trade with people that I have admired for a long time. Please be understanding that I cannot trade with everyone. I am more likely to trade with those who I contact myself, rather than through requests.
When trading for digital art, I typically ask for equal dollar value, digital art to plush. So if the plush I made cost $300, I would expect $300 worth of digital art in return, plus the value of postage if the trader does not want to cover that themselves.
I rarely want to trade for plush as I just don't have room for them. Mostly I would like to trade for other crafts (such as art dolls, sculptures, etc) or traditional works.
Q. Can I critique your work? or Why don't you like critique?
A.Please understand that while you may have good intentions, I really do not like receiving critique on my work unless requested. I prefer to seek critique in private from experienced artists/friends.
Q. Can I buy or have your plush pattern/s?
A. For the most part, my patterns are not for sale. I am currently developing a pony pattern to sell. I will post a journal when it becomes available.
Q. How did you learn to plush/make patterns
A. I started out by doing A LOT of research. I then learnt to pattern basic shapes, such as spheres etc. Once you can plush basic shapes, most plushes are just variations and combinations of these shapes. Practicing with premade patterns is also a great way to learn, but practising making your own patterns is highly valuable. Buying a great pattern wont make your plushes great quality, practice will. I have been making my own patterns for 4+ years now, so don't expect to learn the skill overnight.
Q. Can you teach me?
A. I am more than happy to answer a few questions or give advice, but unfortunately I don't have time to sit down and spend hours teaching everyone.
I do offer personalized tutoring/guidance as a reward for supporting me on Patreon
I also make fortnightly tutorial videos on Patreon for those wanting to learn plush techniques I use everyday to make my work look as professional as possible.
Q. What do you make your plushes out of?
A. I primarily use minky fabric. I usually purchase it from plushaddict.co.uk, fabric.com and the minky boutique.
Q. How do you do your eyes on your plushes?
A. I use a Bernina 830LE as my primary machine, and my brother Innovis 750D as a backup. Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software area also used.
Q. What sewing machine do you use?
A. I use a Bernina 830LE and a Pfaff Ambition 1.0
Q. What airbrush and paints do you use?
A. I use a dual action airbrush www.hobbytools.com.au/airbrush…
Pretty much any airbrush can do plush airbrushing. I would suggest purchasing a dual action as you can control the flow.
For detailed information on airbrushing plushes consider supporting me on Patreon, where I have many posts and a huge video detailing this.
Q. When will plush commissions open?
A. Commissions opening 25th and 26th of Feb
Q. Why do your plushes cost so much?
A. Custom plushes are a luxury item. They are custom made from high quality materials, using quality machinery and are extremely labour intensive. All of this equates to a higher cost to plushes that are mass produced (I am not a factory). These are art pieces, not toys.
A plush can take 20-100+ hrs to make. Times that by an hourly wage and complex plush can jump in price quickly. I often remake the head and/or body of the plush 7-12 times over before creating the final product. This takes a great deal of time.
My materials are expensive and I do not have the buying power of a mass producing toy company.
If you do not like my pricing please consider purchasing a mass produced/official plush instead, or politely considering alternate artists that may suit your budget more. Making a snarky comment about my pricing is a quick way to be blacklisted for commissions.
My work is extremely high quality. Each piece is handmade from scratch to the highest standard. They are collectors items and made exactly to your custom specifications. These are not toys.
Q. But that is out of my price range..
Sewing is my sole income so I will not be lowering my prices. There are a large range of plushmakers out there, so if my work is out of your price range, perhaps anothers will suit you better. But PLEASE do not ask others to copy my work. It is very disrespectful and hurtful.
Q. Can you make ____ plush smaller for cheaper?
A. Usually, making the plush smaller does not make it easier for me to make, it actually makes it more fiddly and harder to get in details. The small difference in cost of materials is usually offset by the extra hours it takes me to sew the fiddly pieces. Of course, a 10" plush is going to be cheaper than a 25" plush (though it will be FAR less detailed) but a difference of 2-5" is not going to effect pricing a great deal.
Q. Can you advertise _______ for me? Or can I advertise _______ for you in return for _____?
A. The only case I will do this is via Patreon support. For certain tiers I will post a feature of your avatar, or a thumbnail of your chosen work to feature on my page. Otherwise the answer is probably no.
Q. Can I draw your OC/s?
A. Of course! I love it when people draw my OCs. Please make sure to send me a link when you are done. References: nazegoreng.deviantart.com/favo…
Q. Can I make you a gift? (ie sculpture, custom, plush etc)
A. I'd love that! But please understand that making a gift (a physical item) and expecting me to then pay for it is not ok. Neither is making something then asking me to trade for it when no trade has been agreed upon.
If you are going to want me to pay postage to send said gift please ask first as my finances can change.
Q. Can I reserve a commission place
A. Typically the only way to reserve a commission place is to support me on Patreon (at the $50 reward) during the month of opening.
Q. Do you take payment plans?
A. Due to MANY people messing me around, I no longer take payment plans, unless we have agreed to it under special circumstances. Consider asking a friend or family member to help you save, or open a savings account to reach your goal.
Q. Can we be friends?
A. Becoming friends is a natural process, so asking to be my friend won't make it so. Friendship happens over time, and cannot be requested or forced. Please understand that I'm a very busy person and noting me over and over again trying to force conversation can be uncomfortable. I am also quite reserved and not a very talkative person. Please do not take this personally.
Q. Do you come from a smoke/pet free home?
A. Neither I or anyone I live with smokes. We do have pet birds, snakes and a kitten. The kitten does not go into the sewing room, but do talk to me if you have concerns about allergies before requesting a commission.
Q. I'm too nervous to note/talk to you
A. Please don't feel that way. I'm always happy to answer questions, so don't ever feel like you can't ask.
Q. Why did you start making plushes and how did you improve your skills?
A. I started out admiring other plushmakers (and not being able to afford them) and figured I could make my own if I applied myself. I had some experience in sculpting, painting and general craft so I felt I already had a head start.
I bought my equipment, researched like crazy and drafted my own patterns. Plushing for 5 years has given me a lot of experience and practice. I always try to keep updating my patterns and incorporating new ideas and techniques into my work. Learning to make a tonne of my own patterns from scratch has also taught me a great deal.
- Research like mad (even once you are experienced)
- Be passionate about improving
- Don't be satisfied with sub-par work
- If you are serious, invest in your machinery and tools
- Did I mention practice?
