Little Bigfoot by captain-farand Little Bigfoot by captain-farand
The elusive bigfoot, found at last. In my garden. He's only about 8 inches tall, which explains why no-one's been able to find him before now...

Yay - fake fur and felt! :dance:
Will be on sale very soon! :boogie:

*SQUEEE* I think I just died from cuteness overdose.

Are these really going on sale??

Yep! I'm hoping to put up more stuff to sell soon too! At the moment I'm just selling stuff via DA (slowly...^^;), but I hope to have a proper shop on Etsy or somewhere soon!

I don't exactly have a price for him yet... ^^; I was thinking roughly about £8 - £10 (that's about $13 - $17)? What do you think? I'm no good at figuring out how much my work is worth... ^^;

Saw this comment and thought I'd stick my oar in :giggle:

I had trouble pricing my items at first but you'll find that people will pay more for such a unique and wonderfully handmade item than something made by a machine.

Given your level of skill and the cost of materials, time etc. I would have offered him for NO less that 25 :nod:

Someone link me this article [link] which was really helpful into getting an insight to what my work is worth.

This is a beautiful plushie and oh so cute! :heart: worth much more than a tenner.

Really? You think so? :? I still haven't managed to sell him, so that's worth considering... I'm always worried about asking too much for plushies and stuff, and it seems that every time I ask someone for advice or check other people's prices on Etsy and such, I get completely different estimates! ^^;
Thank you so much for the link - it's pretty helpful! And thank you for the comment! :heart:

Where are you selling him? Its a case of finding the right person to buy, which could take any length of time - for example ~juumou doesn't sell any of his plushies for less than $100 and lots of people go "OMG thats waaay to much noone would ever pay that" - but he does sell his stuff!! To the people who appreciate good craftsmanship and hard work.

To give you an idea my 2 of my chibi keyrings went for 4.50 each, you've made something about 8 times the size but only offered it for double that.
It is a struggle but you have to consider time involved - if this plush took 4hrs to make (i have no idea so just a guess) then at minimum wage per hour would put your plushie at 23.20 without materials and stuff - so yeah it is difficult to know ^^; sometimes you just have to put your foot down and say 'yeah my work is worth that much'

Unfortunately noone can give you the right answer but can only advise on what they think is best :hug: you'll work it out!
You're very welcome :heart:

I'm not selling any of my stuff anywhere in particular at the moment - just mainly dealing with people personally, but admittedly it doesn't happen very often... Are there any sites you'd recommend for selling stuff?

I certainly will consider your advice with regards to pricing - it's nice to speak to someone who's actually selling plushies on this topic! I guess my main problem is that I have to try and convince myself that my work is worth... something. ^^; :huggle:

Hmm, close to the 17 mark sounds about right...I'm basing this off of the price anime/video/manga plushies usually cost online. The 12 inch ones are usually around 20, or a little less, and I think yours is 10 inch? So...probably somewhere around there. *hopes that made sense* ^^'
