Herp a Derp

Well, it turns out to be a good thing that I did a test plush on this one. It came out mostly great, but the face is, uh... yeah. Next plush is in the works right now, and should be much better. :)

But I figure even a derp can get some love, so I went ahead and made this in minky (it's more expensive than canvas yes, but canvas I'd have to just throw away, nobody would buy it. I figure somebody will spend the cost of a yard of minky at least on a giant Luna plush, even if she is a derp. She's still less derp than the official plushes.)

Anyhow, here's pics. I'll put an auction up on ebay or something later on.

Pony auction time!

All right. So I've confirmed the sad truth that custom plush auctions are getting pulled from ebay. :( I don't want to just slap a price on this and put it on etsy though, as I honestly don't know what people will pay for it. On the one hand it's a frigging TWO FOO TALL LUNA. (zomg!) On the other hand it's a prototpye and it's pretty darn derpy. And on the one hand I needed to do it for another commission I'm getting paid for, but on the other hand I'm $800 in behind on my financial obligations right now so I need all the money I can get. Ergo an auction is really the best thing, you guys can decide what you want to pay, and I can get paid as much as it's worth.

So! The auction is being held HERE!

For those of you who haven't participated in a livejournal auction before, here's how it works:

1. To place a bid please post a comment replying to the current high bid with your bid amount. Comments replying to the post or to other comments are not valid bids. If you do not have a livejournal account, you can comment using a facebook account, twitter, google, etc.

2. DO NOT BID UNLESS YOU MEAN IT. Yes you can delete comments, but I can SEE when you do that. Just like any auction site, a bid is a contract. I WILL RE-POST DELETED BIDS.

3. The auction will end in one week, on August 31st at 5pm pacific time. Please do NOT snipe. As livejournal doesn't have a second counter, I don't feel sniping is fair or practical, so any bids in the last 10 minutes of the auction will extend the auction time another 20 minutes past the end to give people time to counter-bid.

4. If you win, I accept paypal, check, or money order. :) Shipping will be in addition to the winning bid. I ship as cheaply as possible, but remember this is a TWO FOOT TALL LUNA. It will cost a bit, especially if you're overseas.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them. :) Just don't post questions as a response to the current high bid, please reply to the post to start a new thread for them.

Thank you all!

She is made from minky, although I will note that the nap of the fabric runs the wrong way on a lot of the pieces. *cough* Yeah. :) Still, very soft and cuddly. She is two feet tall not counting the horn, so she's pretty darn big. She stands pretty well, though her back legs tend to slide around a bit. Eyes are felt, hair is minky too. Cutie mark is also minky, and is sewn in, not glued on.
