Hi all! I’m in need of a little bit of a hand raising some funds to get myself overseas at the end of the year. I’ve been given an extremely exciting opportunity to visit a couple of other countries, and in all honesty I don’t believe I’m ever realistically going to have this kind of experience ever again in my life. To be able to do this, I’m selling adorable handmade jackalope plushies!

Jackalopes are an adorable little piece of American folklore, and are a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope or deer. The story goes that cowboys would tell tales and sing songs around campfires at night and hear the jackalopes mimicking their voices and singing along from a distance.

I know a bunch of you have seen the Kawaii Collection floating around tumblr, and it never fails to astound me how many people appreciate them. I’ve since introduced a bunch of new ‘lopes that I hope will all get the same amount of love from everyone. They’re all kid safe (with the possible exception of the Geek Colelction (their glasses), parental discretion advised) and totally washable (all feature care instructions on an sewn seam tag), so they can survive for a long long time in your home with proper care. Each jackalope in the store comes with their own little character tag, which features their name, mini character bio, and a short explanation of what a jackalope is.

Even if it’s not your cup of tea, if you could reblog and share the post around I’d be immensely grateful. I’ve got a whooooooole bunch of them available to buy over at the online store, and I can ship worldwide! Cheers my lovely little nerdlings!

~JACKALOPE COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN~

Hey my beloved nerds! Due to popularity and demand, we’re opening up custom commissions on our jackalope plushies!

A few notes to start with:

  • Jackalopes are $40NZD each. If your design happens to be a bit more elaborate, the price will increase accordingly.
  • There are only TEN slots open at this time, and each slot is for a single plushie. First in, first serve!
  • There’s a non-negotiable $10NZD upfront deposit on each slot. This reserves your spot, and will come off the total payment. Production will not begin until your payment is received.
  • I will not be repeating previous commission colour schemes. Each commission has been custom made for someone, and I will not make their design for someone else.
  • Colour schemes are subject to what fleece I can source. I can find nearly anything, however if I can’t find exactly what you’re after I can usually nut out an alternative with you.

All you need to do is flick us an ask letting us know you’re keen and giving us the colours you want each part of your jackalope to be:

  • horns
  • body and head
  • tummy
  • ears (inner and outer)
  • tail (upper and underside)

Usually the outer ears, upper tail and body are one colour while the horns, inner ears, tummies and underside tail are a secondary colour, though there’s nothing to say you can’t have a mix! Readily available ribbon colours are white, black, red, pale pink, and gold, though if you have another colour in mind ask about it and I’ll see what I can do.

We use PayPal for payment, however New Zealanders can pay via internet banking if they prefer. Postage to your location will be added to the final invoice. I’ll happily take international commissions, don’t be shy!

This post will be circulated to the Facebook page as well, so be sure to get in quick and reserve your spot! I’ll update this post with how many slots are left as slots are claimed
