Due to the increased interest in my plush and soft sculpture work I have created a pricing guide and TOS.

Please be sure to read through my TOS before asking for a commission:


Custom plushes are priced on a case by case basis. Please see the illustrated pricing guide here: nightwinggalleries.com/plushpr…

Before requesting a commission please read the guidelines below. By doing so you are acknowledging you are over the age of 18 and have the authority to conduct business online.

References and Designing:

I require color references for all work. Static front, back and side views are best. Dynamic photos are workable, but may result in inaccuracies due to incomplete views. Please make sure that these are current and as accurate as possible. I do not take responsibility for inaccurate characters due to incomplete reference materials.

Pattern design usually takes about a month to complete, I have to make the new pattern several times to ensure that it will look correct. Plushes made from existing patterns will be able to skip this phase.

Fabric will be purchased once the pattern design is complete. Custom colors can be dyed with the understanding that dying minky fabric is a fickle process and the end color may not be exact. Pains will be taken to get the colors as accurate as possible. Fur can not be dyed and is limited to the existing colors available for purchase.


[b][u]Time Frame:[/u][/b]

Custom designs generally take 2-3 months to complete. More complex designs take longer than simple ones. I tend to send a lot of in-progress shots and post a lot of them to my twitter @merihsaan. If you do not want me to post the WIP photos, please tell me.

[b]
[u]What will I make?[/u][/b]

My plush commissions right now are limited to 4-legged creatures. I do not work with anthros, humanoids or any derivative thereof. I also do not make plushes with an SPH, so please do not ask. I do not touch anything Disney, or Disney owned. I have no desire to go head to head with them in court over copyright.



[b][u]Payments, cancellations and Refunds:[/u][/b]

For any custom work there is a minimum materials + 20% downpayment that is non-refundable. This is to cover any materials purchased and used to complete the project along with covering time spent designing a pattern and cutting it out.

Paypal invoices will be sent for all commission requests.
Payment plans are acceptable for soft sculptures over $400. A paypal invoice will be sent with the total amount. Please be aware though that no work will be done to cut/sew until the payment is received in full.


No refunds will be given on custom plushes once the order has started being sewn.  
Shipping will be refunded in full if the order is cancelled.
Items will be shipped US Priority mail unless otherwise indicated, with insurance for items over $100 in value. Tracking numbers will be provided.



[b][u]Privacy Policy:[/u][/b]
Any and all information collected will be used exclusively to complete business transactions such as name, address and payment information. Information will only be shared with the necessary parties to process payments and ship items. Permission will be requested before sending marketing solicitations or any other use other than the guidelines outlined above. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this.

Had my appointment at the orthopedics doctor today. I'm splint free...surprisingly. Broke the radius right below the elbow joint, but where it is they want me to start moving my arm as early as I can to keep the joint from stiffening. From what she told me it is highly unlikely that the bones will move at this point. I'm so glad to be rid of that damned splint even if my arm is still in the sling. I am allowed to move it as comfort permits and have been given a set of range of motion exercises to do to promote healing. So, I'm out of work until April, but the prognosis is good for a fast recovery. I'm gonna be the Lucky Charms girl for the next few weeks as my bruises start turning a rainbow of colors.

And no broken ribs, they did chest x-rays. Just very badly bruised.

Well, so much for any plans I had for the next couple months.
Was coming down Clinton Ave in Winslow coming back into Waterville, riding down the hill right at the lights before the bridge. Was stopped, light turned green, my lane was clear, went to enter the intersection and a car in the left hand lane decides they're going to take a right hand turn in-front of me. I hit my brakes, missed the car but the inertia threw me over the handlebars.

So, radius is broken right below the elbow, bruising on my left hand, right thigh, and I probably cracked/bruised a couple ribs from the impact. I'm home now with my left arm in a cast from the shoulder to my wrist. Thankfully nothing else is damaged including my bike. Will likely be in the cast for 3-4 weeks, and out of work indefinitely at this point. I'm just grateful to be alive.

A friend of mine is having a hard time. Her heat has been on and off all winter, and as a result of the recent cold snap her pipes have burst, leaving her home flooded and without running water. Any amount of help is appreciated.

What Merih's painting? I dug out my oil paints after a long, long haitus due to severe stress and anxiety issues. I will be working on the background and trees tonight. I do not know how long I will be on for, but this will most likely be a thing for this week so I can get a good chunk of work done before having to allow for drying. Plan on 10pm and after though as I work the next few days.

Anyways, tonight's stream will have the mic on or off depending, music will be playing. Naming tunes will be rewarded with virtual cookies. As always, please be courteous in the chat, and play nicely.

These will be worked on both on and off-stream, if you do not want me streaming your commission please tell me when you make your request.

Thanks for looking! By commissioning me, you are helping me get much needed stuff (read clothes/shoes for my kids, school supplies for my kids, household needs like toilet paper) that I just don't make enough money at my regular job to afford.
