Shouren:  Feline Geisha by crokittycats Shouren:  Feline Geisha by crokittycats
I suppose she could have gone under textiles...but this will work.

She is about two feet tall, carved in foam rubber, and is painted with acrylics. Her eyes are haindpainted glass from a taxidermy company (i'm not that good yet...) and her whiskers are real (shed by my kitties). Her dress was made by me with various brocade scraps.

Shouren: Feline Geisha by *ukonzukai I've always loved geisha dolls, but this one was too cute to pass up! A whimsical spin on a traditional object. Check it out! ( Featured by JLLopez )

Not a big fan of the neck, but otherwise I think out of all the dolls I viewed on your gallery shes one of my favs. I haven't had the chance to navigate through your portion of dev art fully, but do you take commissions for such dolls? whats a base price range for somethign of this media?

Thank you very much for your comment. >^-^<
I had to go back to my website to check my going price, but it is in need of serious updates. So here is some current info:
All of the smaller dolls (done with polymer clay and papers) start at $75. The big ones start around $250. The price can increase depending on complexity, materials, and size.

This one is a very old doll, and has so many mistakes. But her face is still a bit sweeter than some of my other girls.

How much of a notice would you need for a Christmas order 2009? Also do you do payments in full or a down payment portion up front and the rest when the doll is finished? Depending on how my fall sales go, I really would like to consider a commission.

I apologize for being so slow in my reply.

For Christmas I'd probably need to know in October at the latest. My biggest sales for kittens and such (and thusly my busiest kittening time) occur from the end of September to mid-December. Halloween kittens and then Christmas kittens.
If it's a carved doll, they actual doll doesn't take too long. Foam rubber loves me. But the kimono and accessories take longer.
I do split payments up. Sometimes I try to get some kind of deposit to help cover any new materials needed. But I don't require it.

Thanks for getting back to me. the lateness of the reply is not a big deal at all. Alrighty, I'll see how I do come this September since I'm selling at a larger con. Depending on profit, I'll be contacting you again for a Christmas commission. I really love the feline geisha dolls alot.
