Pipe Fox Tutorial by rallamajoop Pipe Fox Tutorial by rallamajoop
By popular request, the tutorial for the Pipe Fox/Kudakitsune from xxxHOLiC is up at last. Click the 'Download' link on the top left menu, and (assuming I've got this submission thing working right, being still such a DA noob and all) you should be able to save the tute as a zip file. Queries are welcome if anything in the instructions doesn't seem clear.

Obviously, I've also used this as an excuse to upload a couple of extra photos I had sitting around. The pictures with the ribbon and holly were taken last Christmas, which should tell you more than you ever wanted to know about how long it takes me to get around to uploading some of this stuff. ^^;

ETA: I still occasionally make these to sell on commission. See journal entry here for info.

Spotlight.

If you don't live in Australia, this may not be very useful to you.

I would absolutely love to buy one of these from you if you are still making them! How long is the making time on them, and what about the shipping? I could pay you around the 15th of this month (assuming its the same price I've seen quoted a few times; $25 + $16 US postage).

Sorry, my mistake - $16 for postage is actually right, forgotten I'd already added on the packaging fee. ^^;

Hello again!
I wanted a white one, actually, so that would be great! I don't need it for anything immediately, so the shipping you quoted is just fine. I'd probably be beside myself as I rolled around waiting for it to get here for months, hahaha. 
If that sounds good, I can PM you my email address? If you don't mind, I'd prefer an invoice! And I can send the payment probably by tues/wed!

I've had to put postage up by $2 because I've just run out of postage tubes to send them in (got a bunch for free a while back, but that's not likely to be an option again), but otherwise that's correct. According to the AusPost website, postage ought to take 3-10 days (they do have faster or slower post options available for higher/lower rates, but you'd be looking at a couple of months delivery time to get it any cheaper). Making time depends entirely on what colour you want - if you want one in white or pale yellow (pictured here), I could send it off almost immediately because I've got a couple of spares leftover from a recent convention. Other colours I've done before (purple or red) would take a few days to make from scratch; colours I've not done before have a $5 extra charge and would probably take me a little longer because I'd need to buy new fur. If you need it delivered by a certain date for a gift or the like, I will certainly see what I can do.

Hi, I haven't had any pipe foxes available in a while, but I'm making some more for a convention soon. What colour were you interested in? They cost $25, plus $14 for postage to the US - charges for postage elsewhere may vary slightly. Let me know if you're still interested.

rallamajoop Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014
I've never taken a check before, and I'm not sure about the logistics with sending and cashing international checks, so I'd prefer to avoid them. I usually take paypal, which is fairly easy to sign up for as long as you have a bank account and an email address. If that's not an option for you though I'm sure I could figure something else out.

Postage to the US would cost me about $16, counting packaging and the like.

Have actually just finished making a few more, planning on putting them up on either ebay or etsy as soon as I find the time. I can drop you a message when they're up, if you like?
