About Matrices

Sales 4,934
On Etsy since 2012

From Hobby to How-to's

I started making costumes when I was very young, I used to try to "outdo" myself with every Halloween costume I'd made each year. I started sooner and sooner in the year until it just became a year round hobby.

As I learned how to make the things I made, I took photos and shared them online. People asked how I did it, and I made tutorials to help them through making their own awesome projects!

As my life went on, I got better and better and more innovative with the things I attempted to make. Because of the demand in the niche I was a part of (the furry fandom) I was able to quit my job and live from the things I made for the fandom.

This etsy shop is only a small fraction of what I do. With time I hope it grows into a bigger thing.

    Hi! I am Matrices! I am a dog-person and spend most of my day making awesome things! I build costumes, and make props, I run http://www.matrices.net a website that has a big section of tutorials and how-tos for making costumes!

    Tolt is an all around helper. Often proofreading tutorial content to make sure it makes sense. Also attempting to reduce the number of grammar sins I try to get away with, haha. Tolt also deserves a bit of bonus credit for being a really gr8 partner.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get my digital download?

The files are immediately available to you upon confirmed payment through etsy itself.

You must get them via the browser or logged into a regular computer - not the app (the etsy app at time of writing doesn't seem to support digital downloads and that is not anything I have control over as the seller, sorry)! Via browser or via regular computer are the way to reliably get all your purchased files! Just be sure you are logged in with the same account you paid with!

Here's more info about digital downloads:

Do I get the files emailed to me?

They are not emailed by me personally, no. However you will receive an automatic email from etsy about your purchase, you can get to the page to download the files from the link within your etsy receipt, should be from transaction@etsy.com

Follow your purchase link through etsy's email and allow it to open within the browser (not the app!) and be sure to log into the account you purchased it with, otherwise it will throw up a "no permission" error. This is since your files are located on the etsy account you purchased from!

I need some help with making my project!

I love to have the opportunity to assist if you get stuck following one of my tutorials! Send me an etsy message and I can do my best to help you troubleshoot your potential problem and help you out!

This also helps me write better tutorials in the future, since I will have an opportunity to see where I need to add more instruction to the guide you purchased!

If you need general help making fursuits (but it is not about a specific pattern or guide you purchased from me), I do have a Tutoring Tier on my Patreon. It is great way to support my endeavors and receive my guidance on a larger project you may be working on. https://www.patreon.com/Matrices

I also offer private tutoring for an hourly rate if that fits your needs better.
