How to pronounce my name
Q. How much is (insert name here) plush?
A.For general pricing see here:
Nazegoreng's Plush Price ListNazegoreng’s Plush Price List
Prices depend on individual plushes, please note me and I can give you a specific price.
PRICES ARE IN AUD (Australian Dollars). This may vary greatly from your currency, please convert if unsure.
To convert AUD (Australian dollars) to USD or another currency, just type "(insert price here) AUD to (insert your currency here)" into google.
Q. What is a commission?
A. A commission is a custom order made for you, and paid for with real money via paypal. I only open these custom orders at certain times of the year (typically every 3 months). These orders are limited so a small number, so not everyone is guaranteed a spot.
Q. Can I commission you?
A. Commissions are CLOSED. They last opened on the 1st of November (AEST)
Commissions ClosedCommissions are now closed. Commissions will re-open once my current commission list is completed.
They will open again one I finish my current commissions (see status below in 'Current Plush Progress')
Q. What kind of plushes can you make
A. I can make almost any kind of plush. I prefer to work between 10-25" in size, and can make almost any fantasy, animal, anthro or other creature. I can make giant plushes (up to approx 40" but these incur a very high price)
If you are not sure if I can or will make something feel free to send me a note. There's no harm in asking.
I can make NSFW elements, but OCs only. No canon characters. Feel free to note me to discuss. Don't hesitate to ask.
Also please take into account that plushes over 3ft tall run the risk of not being able to be posted or can have extreme postage costs ($500-900+).
Q. Can I get a bulk discount?
A. Unfortunately I do not offer bulk discounts. Commission slots are limited and there are plenty of people willing to pay full price for their plush. It doesn't work in my favour to offer a discount when I could be making a full price plush for someone else.
Q. Can I trade with you?
A. While I would love to trade as much as possible, I simply don't have the time (or finances) to trade with everyone.
I will typically only trade with people that I have admired for a long time. Please be understanding that I cannot trade with everyone. I am more likely to trade with those who I contact myself, rather than through requests.
When trading for digital art, I typically ask for equal dollar value, digital art to plush. So if the plush I made cost $300, I would expect $300 worth of digital art in return, plus the value of postage if the trader does not want to cover that themselves.
Q. Can I critique your work? or Why don't you like critique?
A.Please understand that while you may have good intentions, I really do not like receiving critique on my work unless requested. For personal and practical reasons. I prefer to seek critique either in private from experienced artists or when I am actively editing my pattern (in which case I will post a journal inviting open critique). If you'd like to contribute your thoughts on new patterns, consider sponsoring me on Patreon, where I ask for critique regularly.
Q. Can I buy or have your plush pattern/s?
A. For the most part, my patterns are not for sale. I am currently developing a pony pattern to sell. I will post a journal when it becomes available.
Q. How did you learn to plush/make patterns
A. I started out by doing ALLOT of research. I then learnt to pattern basic shapes, such as spheres etc. Once you can plush basic shapes, most plushes are just variations and combinations of these shapes. Practising with premade patterns is also a great way to learn, but practising making your own patterns is highly valuable. Buying a great pattern wont make your plushes great quality, practice will.
Q. Can you teach me?
A. I am more than happy to answer a few questions or give advice, but unfortunately I don't have time to sit down and spend hours teaching everyone.
I do offer personalized tutoring/guidance as a reward for supporting me on Patreon
I also make weekly tutorial videos on Patreon.
Pre-digitised MLP embroidery set (for purchase)
Updated MLP Eye Embroidery SetI just completed an update to my MLP Eye embroidery set. If you purchased the set though Ecrater you should have just received an email with updated files. If purchased though Etsy you can log into Etsy and download the updated set at no charge.
Q. What do you make your plushes out of?
A. I primarily use minky fabric. I usually purchase it from plushaddict.co.uk, and the minky boutique.
Q. How do you do your eyes on your plushes?
A. I use a brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software. For resin eyes I create my own moulds and cast them myself. For giant eyes I use applique using my regular sewing machine, cottons, satin and many stabilisers.
Q. What sewing machine do you use?
A. I use a Pfaff Ambition 1.0 and a brother NS30.
Q. What airbrush and paints do you use?
A. I use a dual action airbrush www.hobbytools.com.au/airbrush…
Pretty much any airbrush can do plush airbrushing. I would suggest purchasing a dual action one as you can control the flow.
For detailed information on airbrushing plushes consider supporting me on Patreon, where I have many posts and a huge video detailing this.
Q. When will plush commissions open?
A. Commissions will open typically once I finish the current batch. Keep an eye out on my progress via my commission list on my page.
Q. Why do your plushes cost so much?
A. Custom plushes are a luxury item. They are custom made from high quality materials, using quality machinery and are extremely labour intensive. All of this equates to a higher cost to plushes that are mass produced (I am not a factory). These are art pieces, not toys.
A plush can take 20-50+ hrs to make, and the minimum wage for someone my age is over $20/hr.
My fingers typically look like this from sewing for so many hours (warning image may gross some people out): sta.sh/01e2i6mzri8r
I also have to deal with the Australian exchange rate and extreme postage costs, as the majority of my materials come from international sources (often resulting in postage in the hundreds of $$$). I currently have to pay double for fabrics ordered from the UK (where I source them from). My materials are expensive and I do not have the buying power of a mass producing toy company.
If you do not like my pricing please consider purchasing a mass produced/official plush instead, or politely considering alternate artists that may suit your budget more.
My work is extremely high quality. Each piece is handmade from scratch to an extremely high standard.
Q. But that is out of my price range..
I try to hold giveaways so everyone has a chance at owning one of my plushes. However, sewing is my sole income so I will not be lowering my prices. There are a large range of plushmakers out there, so if my work is out of your price range, perhaps anothers will suit you better. But PLEASE do not ask others to copy my work. It is very disrespectful and hurtful.
Q. Can you advertise _______ for me? Or can I advertise _______ for you in return for _____?
A. The only case I will do this is via Patreon support. For certain tiers I will post a feature of your avatar, or a thumbnail of your chosen work to feature on my page. Otherwise the answer is probably no.
Q. Can I draw your OC/s?
A. Of course! I love it when people draw my OCs. Please make sure to send me a link when you are done. References: nazegoreng.deviantart.com/favo…
Q. Can I make you a gift? (ie sculpture, custom, plush etc)
A. I'd love that! But please understand that making a gift (a physical item) and expecting me to then pay for it is not ok. Neither is making something then asking me to trade for it when no trade has been agreed upon.
If you are going to want me to pay postage to send said gift please ask first as my finances can change.
Q. Can I reserve a commission place
A. Typically the only way to reserve a commission place is to support me on Patreon (the upper tiers)
Q. Do you take payment plans?
A. Due to MANY people messing me around, I no longer take payment plans, unless we have agreed to it under special circumstances.
Q. Can we be friends?
A. Becoming friends is a natural process, so asking to be my friend won't make it so. Friendship happens over time, and cannot be requested or forced. Please understand that I'm a very busy person and noting me over and over again trying to force conversation can be uncomfortable.
Q. Do you come from a smoke/pet free home?
A. Neither I or anyone I live with smokes. We do have pet birds and reptiles.
Q. I'm too nervous to note/talk to you
A. Please don't feel that way. I'm always happy to answer questions, so don't ever feel like you can't ask.
Q. Why did you start making plushes and how did you improve your skills?
A. I started out admiring other plushmakers (and not being able to afford them) and figured I could make my own if I applied myself. I had some experience in sculpting, painting and general craft so I already had a heads start.
I bought my equipment, researched like crazy and drafted my own patterns. Plushing for 3 years has given me allot of experience and practise. I always try to keep updating my patterns and incorporating new ideas and techniques into my work. Learning to make a tonne of my own patterns from scratch has also taught me a great deal.
- Research like mad (even once you are experienced)
- Be passionate about improving
- Don't be satisfied with sub-par work
- If you are serious, invest in your machinery and tools
