The doll is excellent and the seller gave continual updates throughout the crafting process, which is always welcome.

I make strange things, and sometimes, I just can't keep them all. That's where Etsy (and you!) come in.

I LOVE to sew/paint/draw/sculpt/weld/CREATE, so if you don't see something you want but have something in mind, inspire me! I'm a poor student myself, so I'm sympathetic to the pricing plight of many shoppers. Basically, I price for myself- if I wouldn't buy it at that price, I know I should lower it. Hell, I'm happy just for the chance to have something to do, so I don't charge for labor costs*

I do costumes, accessories, props, dolls, prosthetics, jewelry, everything. I've won awards for my costume work (Otakon 2009 Judge's Favorite, Whitman 2004 most original), because I research styles, costumes and looks until I'm intimately familiar with all the details. After all, let's face it: it's all about the details!


*Unless it's working with metal, fiberglass or other hard materials that require studio time. Sewing is fun- hard labor is hard labor... but I'll never overcharge and I always meticulously keep track of the time spent.

Payment
Paypal is your friend, but I understand if you're wary of it. So I accept checks, too.

Some items, like the handmade dolls or custom jobs, may take some time, as they're often hand-stitched and made to order (I can't have armies of ready-made Pyramid Head dolls scattered around my room: I'd never sleep!). In those cases, please allow 1-2 weeks for fabrication, plus 1-2 weeks for shipping (it's worth the wait- they're made with love!).
Shipping
I'll ship anywhere.

My only reservation is shipping to Europe, especially the U.K. I dunno, I just haven't had good experiences with the U.K. and mail (I once shipped a doll there for $16, then the poor girl on the receiving end had to pay $25 more for customs!). That's not to say I won't ship there, just that you shouldn't be surprised if the mail service hates us both for it.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you're unsatisfied with your purchase for whatever reason, I'll be sad. Then I'll give you a full refund upon receipt of the damaged/defective product.
Additional policies and FAQs
I make things to my own satisfaction- if I wouldn't buy it, I'll rework it until I would. Therefore, if I fell asleep on the job and missed the mark on quality control, I promise to either fix it, tell you how to fix it, or give you a full refund. That's what I'd want to see in a shop, so that's what I'll do, too.
