ONE fursuit commission slot available!

Well folks, I've cleared all the suits but one off of my list (and that one's on hold until I hear back from the customer) so it's time to open up a fursuit commission slot.

The open slot is for completion in January or February. If you need a suit before then, I can't help you.

This is NOT first come first serve. I'm only taking one slot, and I'd like to give several people a chance. I'd also like to make a suit I'm going to have fun making, you get the best results when your maker is enjoying the project and not hating it.

So here's the low-down on how this will work:

First: e-mail me at spark.costumes@gmail.com and let me know you're interested in the slot. With your e-mail please include a description of your character, art of your character, or an *accurate* reference sheet. If you include an *accurate* reference sheet, I will be making the suit exactly according to said sheet. If you include general artwork or just a description I'll be taking artistic license to interpret what you've given me into a fursuit.

Next: In three days I'll look through the e-mails I've gotten and pick the suit I'd like to make. Then I'll contact everybody and let them know if they've gotten the slot or if they need to wait for the next one. The person who's gotten the slot will also get a price quote, and a quote for the necessary down payment.

Then: If you're the one I picked, you have one week to send me a down payment. :) (Down payments on a full suit are generally no more than $300, though if you want a quad suit, or have something that will require extra work like wings it may be more.) Once I get the payment I'll buy supplies for your suit, and put said suit on my project list.

When the suit is done I'll send you photos, and at that point you can pay the remaining money, if you haven't already, plus shipping. Then I send out the suit, you wear the suit, and everybody is happy. :)

PLEASE do not try to claim the slot if you won't be able to send the down payment right away!

If I only get one person ready and able to pay, well then they're the one that will get this slot, and I have no idea if more than one person will be interested, I haven't done this before, I've usually just done auctions, or first-come-first served style stuff. So we'll see how this goes!

If you'd like to browse through the suits I've made in the past, the best pace to find them all is probably in my website gallery, here: http://www.sparkcostumes.com/gallery/

Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about my suits or about this process.
