    Hey! Welcome!

    I do this because I love it. My dream job is sitting in a warehouse full of amazing supplies, making stuff all day. And sometimes taking a break to eat some cookies, because cookies.

    My house is non-smoking. I have two small dogs who aren't terribly interested in stickers or earrings, but there's always a chance of errant hair, so if you're very sensitive to dog hair please be aware of that. I do model my own items, and I do wear perfume, so if you're super super allergic to scents, please keep that in mind.

    I try to use as many upcycled (pre-used) items as possible in my creations. Not only does this practice keep things out of landfills, it also makes the items super unique AND keeps my prices low.

    Because of this, there is no universal sizing on my items. Each item's measurements (with the item laid flat), original brand, listed size, and fiber content are noted within the individual listings. If there's any other information you need before purchasing an item, please don't hesitate to contact me! The easiest way to check the fit of my items is to measure something you already own and compare your numbers to mine.

    All distressed items such as hoodies, t-shirts and dresses are one-of-a-kind items. I can not exactly reproduce any item. Looking for something similar in a different size or color? Be sure to check my other listings, and if you can't find what you're after don't hesitate to message me about a custom item (please read the Additional Policies section for more info about custom orders).

    Due to the processes I use, some items may bleed when washed. This is noted within the individual listing. Please wash these items separately-- by hand in cold water is ideal.

    All hair-related items are modeled on a wig, not on my own hair. So no worries about weird hair bugs! (Not that I have any.)

    I do not stock or sell shoddy items, but due to the upcycled/vintage nature of my materials, some items may have flaws. I try to note ANY and ALL flaws in the original listing. If your item appears flawed, please double-check the listing before contacting me.

    If there appears to be an issue that was NOT noted in the original listing, please contact me right away so we can resolve it. I am happy to work with you to make your experience into a pile of awesome.

    All items are shipped securely. I'm not responsible for damage by the post office.
    Payment
    Payment must be made within 5 days of purchase, unless special arrangements are made ahead of time such as with custom items. I accept money orders or PayPal. If using a money order, PLEASE LET ME KNOW when you order.

    All sales are final (with exception of flawed items; please see exchange/refund policy below). Please think before you buy!
    Shipping
    Clothing (hoodies, t-shirts, etc) are shipped Priority. Smaller items (such as jewelry) are shipped first class. To upgrade your package to Priority, please contact me prior to purchase.

    Express shipping is available, but again, please contact me BEFORE purchase to chat about this.

    At this time I do not ship outside the United States. I'm sorry. It's such a bloody pain. I may offer it in the future.
    Additional policies and FAQs
    Custom Order Information:

    I love doing custom work, but it can be a bit tricky! Before requesting a custom item, please read through the info below.

    ++HOODIES AND SHIRTS++

    -I can do a design that's similar to a previous one (though not EXACTLY the same, because the designs are hand cut each time), or something new. I've done words, skulls, wings, all sorts of stuff. Take a look through the active items AND the sold items for plenty of ideas.

    -I generally use preworn (thrift shop) hoodies to cut costs. That means that while the price is low, I have little control over the sizes and colors that I find. So, there's a few ways to go about a custom order:

    1. You provide a hoodie that I put a design on (must be at least 60% cotton). The buyer pays for shipping both ways, but saves cash because I don't have to purchase the base hoodie. This CAN be dangerous, though, because sometimes the distressing goes awry, and there's no fixing it. So never send a hoodie you're in love with.

    2. I take your order and add it to The Wishlist. If I find a hoodie in your color/size while out looking for used hoodies, I buy it, contact you to let you know the order can be completed, and then we set up a custom item here on Etsy. This can take a while, so if you chose this option it's best to have a wide array of colors that you deem acceptable (e.g., "A size XS in blue, purple, dark green or black").

    3. I buy a new, unworn hoodie and use that as the base. It more or less guarantees your size, but the colors can be limited. It also increases the price by about $20 unless I can find an amazing sale somewhere. ;) The final cost of a custom using this option is usually at least $50 + shipping, and higher if the design is complex.

    Other info regarding custom hoodies/shirts:

    -I have little to no control over the final color of the item. I use bleach, neutralizers and dye to tweak things, but sometimes the material surprises me. Black hoodies generally lighten to peach/orange, and many colors just go pastel (especially pink and blue). Purple often turns bright pink. Greens, oddly, often turn brown/yellow/orange. I can overdye to some extent, but often only in earthy purples, dark blues, and deep reds. The dye eventually fades, though washing in cold water can help subdue that.

    -Pastel base hoodies are very hard to work with. They often do not lighten enough for a design to be seen.

    ++ JEWELRY AND HAIR PRETTIES ++

    If you're interested in a custom color Zombie Pop pendant, Tentacle Love/BFF necklace, or Hair Bow, please contact me. I can also make similar products in earring, brooch or bracelet form- just ask!
