I got tagged by IMAGINeye 
Here are some rules:
1. You must posts these rules
2.. Each person has to share 10 things about them
3. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer 
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal
5. Go to their page to inform them they are tagged (we have mentions now, using that)
6. Not something like " you are tagged if you read that"
7. You have to legitimately tag 10 people
8. No tag-backs
9. You can't say that you don't do tags
10. You MUST MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY

Also FUCK YOU, rules, I'll not tag 10 people if I want! Mostly because I am 90% sure I can't think of 10 people.

1.) What made you want to be on Deviant Art?: I've had a handful of DAs since middle school or freshman year of high school. I got on there because my friends had them. But later on when I made cleaner DAs it was to gather potential customers.

2.) If you could have any super power, what would it be and how would you use it?: I am gonna be super boring and say that I am never able to pick a super power. Too much pressure to choose a power for myself rather than a character. I dunno. Maybe the power to will whatever I want to happen into reality. Which seems very much Wanda-esque. But like, if I want food, I have it, want a vacation, I have it, need a million bucks, I have it, need to borrow powers, I have it. It's lame and a really blanket power. But whatever.

3.) In the eventual zombie apocalypse, what role/trade/ability would you fill in a group?: Whatever role where I just get to spout out ideas and shit. I am not a good shot, nor am I the best a physical labor. But I am a vault of 'useless' information that is always going to be useful in Zday times. Need to know whats edible, need to know what you can do, where you can find something, how to make this or that, I probably have that stored up in my head to pull out.

4.) You can play only one video game for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?:  It's not out yet but can I say Dragon Age Inquisition? I loved DA:O and DA: II, so I will probably love the third as well. New character creator, combined with all the LIs and so many endings I will be playing for the rest of ever anyway...

5.) If you had to use a favorite food as a piece of clothing, how would you wear it?: Does a cookie barrett count?

6.) What is your favorite TV show?  Also, what is your favorite character from that show?: I don't know what my favorite is. I can't pick all time favs. I have favorites in certain categories. So for the purpose of this, I will just say that my favorite show is The IT Crowd because I used to rewatch it daily. Favorite character is Maurice Moss.

7.) Who was the first person you followed here on Deviant Art and why?: I honestly don't fucking remember who I followed first on DA, that was like 10 years ago.

8.) What are the three places you want to travel to in the world before you die?: Japan, France, and Germany.

9.) Who would be your top pick for most annoying character in a movie...ever.: Shit. That's fucking tough. I quite honestly I tend to block them out and only remember the annoyance if the particular movie is brought up or I watch it again. I don't know.

10.) How much do you hate me for tagging you? (use any measure system to your liking): On a scale of 1 to hate: With the white hot intensity of a thousand suns.

My questions:
1.) What class are you? Rouge, Mage, Warrior. Why?
2.) If you could change your entire clothing style for a day, what would it be?
3.)What is your least favorite game in your collection?
4.) If an everyday item was your arch nemesis, what would it be?
5.) ZDay happens, we're all banking on the slow, shambling zombies, but what happens if we get runners. How fucked are you?
6.) Super hero name time. It's the color of your shirt and the item closest to your right. Who are you?
7.) If a game that you think really needs a sequel doesn't have one and you could force a sequel to happen, what game would it be?
8.) Who/What would your Persona be?
9.) Your favorite drink flavor and your favorite ice cream just combined to make another drink. What is it and how gross does this sound?
10.) Do you hate these tag things?

Still alive guys

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 9, 2014, 6:16 PM


And with two days left on my membership.
But that's okay I guess. I am not on here too often as of late. I've got so much on my plate and I bit off so much I am choking on it.
But still alive, still trying to motivate myself to work.
But I haven't forgotten about commissions.

I am unfortunately too over booked to take any commissions for November. I'm currently not taking on anything major until after I finish.

She spends more of her time on fanfiction.net and tumblr. She updates more there and doesn't seem to bother much with DA. Her doll and toy related blog : jadestoybox.tumblr.com/

And her personal tumblr: heebiejeebiejade.tumblr.com/

Hello! Just surfed by, and you've got some great stuff here. I've also seen your plushies, nice work. You say you undercharge for them. Don't feel bad, a lot of folks starting out do that because they're not sure what to charge for them. Once, when I was between jobs, I used to make custom OOAK (one-of-a-kind) dolls and stuffed animals. My wife (who's a luthier- she makes and repairs stringed instruments) gave me some advice. First you add up material costs for the item in question. Next, you keep track of how many hours it took you to make it, and finally you decide how much you'd get paid to make it if you worked for someone else. In other words, how much would you make at an hourly rate. Now at first, you might only get paid minimum wage. But later, after your skills improved, you'd get more. Now add your hours, say, 10 hours @ $8.00 an hour, plus $25.00 for material costs, plus a little profit, say around 10%. and you've got a total cost of about $120.00. Now this is just an example, of course. Your prices should match what you think you should get paid for your handiwork. You also have to add in the time it takes you to make all of the accessories or costs if you purchase them. Back when I was making OOAK dolls, one of them might take me 40 hours of hard work and sold for over $600.00. (And this was 90's-era pricing.) Even at that, I had too many orders to fill. Sometimes it's hard to tell people no, you've got too much work to get to them. Once I made a custom doll for a lady who lost her 8yo daughter to leukemia. She wanted a life-sized doll that looked just like her daughter to dress up in her clothes- to remind her of what she used to look like. My own daughter was about her girl's age at the time, so how could I say no? I made a custom armature of metal and plastic the moved just a human body, and cast a custom body in foam latex. The head and hands were of silicone and had hand-punched human hair and glass eyes. The body had lead shot inside to give it a weight of about 40lbs. After I was finished, I brought the doll over dressed in the clothes she'd furnished me and after she saw her, she started openly weeping. I thought I'd done something wrong, but she said no, she was just happy, and gladly paid me the $4,500.00 I asked for her. She asked if I wanted more, but I said no, that was plenty. (This was around 1991.) As it turned out, I should've either charged her more, or asked her to tell no one about it, as right after that I was inundated with orders for similar dolls. Since I was doing all this out of my home, I didn't have the space to do multiple orders for them. And they all had similar heart-breaking stories. And it was one of the major reasons I no longer make dolls. I suppose the reason for all of this is to say charge what you think your time and ability is worth. Folks'll understand what true craftsmenship is worth and will pay for it. Those who won't aren't worth worrying about. You'll be happier for it in the end. Take care, and be well.
