Hey! I've been poking around trying to find someone I want to commission for a pair of plush/dolls, but I'm finding a hard time finding people who are available or make the kinds of dolls I'm looking for so I thought I'd drop a journal on DA to see if maybe you guys might know of someone/be someone 'cause I'm really clueless about crafting communities
I'm not looking for one style of doll in particular and would love to know what kind of styles are out there. I can post stuff I like and stuff I don't like.
Things I'm looking for in a plush: - nice form and shapes - prefer yarn/faux hair over felt - nicely proportioned - made of nice materials - nice costume work - sits/can sit
A few examples of some plushes/dolls I've found that I like (none are open for commission):
Things that turn me off a plush: - anime flat head with pasted cutout felt style - cheap/off colour materials - stiff legs to torso (can't sit, tips over)
a few examples of plushies/common doll styles that I'm not looking for:
Characters are human/not animals. I'd much rather pay more for a really nice doll than less for an OK doll. I also love resin cast/bjd style dolls, but not sure it is something I can afford at this time. I'd still be willing to take a look though! If you're a doll/plush maker and are interested, please drop me a comment here with your commission info/samples and I'll take a look! Willing to pay in USD/CAD/EUR and/or art. Or you can note if you wish to discuss more privately.
Help Finding One/Finders Fee
I know there probably arn't a ton of doll makers in my watch list, but if you happen to know of someone who is open for commissions that you think would be a good fit for me, please drop me a link to their commission info in this journal! I'm having an OK time finding people who arn't open for commissions, but a much harder time finding people who are. If you're willing to spend a little time to help me find someone I like, I would be happy to draw you a small sketch as a finders fee for hooking me up with someone to work with
