What are the two types of dolls I can order?
We now offer two different types of dolls for you to order in our Commissions! Type one is about 14" tall, is two sided, and much more cuddly. They're more receptive to hugging and are more interactive. Type two is our typical 8" three-dimensional sitting doll. Most of the dolls seen in our Gallery are in this style.
Can you make dolls of real people?
Yes, I can! I've made plenty of dolls of real people. As long as I'm provided enough references, I can make a doll of whatever you'd like!
How do you ship your products?
I send them in Flat Rate shipping boxes with each doll carefully wrapped in bubble wrap. Each package is sent from New Jersey. Depending on your location, it could take between 2-7 business days to reach you. When your package is shipped, you will receive an email to let you know the estimated date of arrival. If you need your doll shipped by a certain date, please let us know in your Commission Form. Currently, I can only ship within North America but am working on International Shipping options!
How long does an average project usually take?
Depending on the amount of detail involved, an average doll takes about 1-2 weeks to complete. As soon as it's done, it goes out the door! Keep in mind, this is only an estimated timeline. If there are other orders ahead of you, it might be longer. A more accurate ETA will be given at the time of your payment.
Won't you get in trouble for making dolls of copyrighted characters?
Honestly, I wondered this myself, but from what I can tell, my dolls fall under the category of "derivative art", which is defined as "a work based upon one or more preexisting works, such as a translation, musical arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted." Since my work is only based on an existing character, but being transformed into another medium entirely, I am covered by this Copyright Act. However, if I am told explicitly to cease and desist the sale of any character, I will obviously comply.
