Mayor mare would be so fun to plushify! I could do her in 3 different ways:
I can basically create anything you visualize. The following methods are all based on set patterns I have created but anything is possible but would need to be quoted as a completely custom piece. (the beanie body is a design-in-process).
15" full sized fully articulated ball jointed skeleton with rotating head: $395
15" full sized non poseable but as above: $355
(the above would feature my more sculpted looking updated pattern with sculpted haunches/butt and new sculpted ear design.
11" Beanie: $225
7" Pocket poseable: $175
I could do a payment plan if that helps with the affordability. Thanks so much for liking my work!! :-D
it just drives me crazy how much people charge, but they are so nice! I would give anything to purchase mayor mare, but I just cant. if I could, I would purchase the 11" inch beanie. sounds very cute. im a big brony, and im kinda in love with the mayor right now
well thank you! We plushie designers charge what we do because each pony is handmade and takes TONS of hours to complete. My simplest ponies are generally about 12 hours and some of my alicorn pieces can be 40 hours or even more. Just to digitize an eye design/cutie mark on the computer takes about 3 or more hours and when I was outsourcing embroidery to a design shop, one pony would cost me about $100 and up to create ($35-$45 to digitize each design and $5-10 for each embroidered print (2 eyes/2 cutie marks). Once I learned to embroider myself, I realized why they charged so much! On top of the time factor, the materials aren't cheap either. I use high quality fabric and embroidery threads which cost $6 per color. I do this for the passion...not for the money because there isn't much money in plushie designing.
i really like how you carefully describe your passion, and i like that you enjoy your time and labor in creating them. In my opinion, the money charged is worth it, but i just cannot afford one. Seems as though you've got this well in hand, and your progress with the ponies has reached a great point in excellence. If i could afford one, my top 3 ponies would be Mayor Mare, Lotus Blossom, and AK Yearling (not Daring Do) i realize that AK and daring are on in the same, but AK is very cute.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment! I keep trying to push my talents to be become better with each pony that I create. My Luna I am almost done with is the best one yet!! Thank you so much for liking and supporting my work…it means so much to me!!! :-D
