I have a serval OC and I would love to have a plush/doll of her. A life-size one.
How much would one that big cost?

Thank you so much for your wonderful creatures! I hope to be back at your booth sunday!

i've looked through your gallery and i adore all the little lovelies you've made. :) (Smile) they are all so cute.

If you don't mind me asking, for the posable dolls, are the heads already attached to the armature before you put the body on? if so, how would that work? 
and what about the soft bodied ones? how would i go about making those?

i've been entertaining the idea of making an art doll but i've never done it before so i don't want to waste materials. which doll would you suggest me to start off with?

Hey there, just popping in to say thanks again for the awesome white Gar I picked up at anime north. Even my other half took a shine to him, and generally he is a bit creeped out by dolls (I have no idea why :shrug:)

What kind of stone did you have in mind for him when you painted him? I would love to know for the write-up for my upcoming photoshoot ;)

It was rotten luck that I couldn't find your stand until hours of looking, but I'll keep my eyes out for more griffins, foxes, and wolves in the future.
Anywho, thanks again, your work is so beautiful, and it's an honour to have some of it in my room :) (Mr. Gar is currently in a meditation pose, shadow-casted by some tealites :meow:)
