All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.

"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amusing rundown on what makes ponies plushable or not, check out Nazegoreng's amazing guide here: fav.me/d7awhun - it truly says everything!

ALL PRICES ARE IN USD

Starting Prices for Standard Size MARES (14 inches) - Stallions are more difficult and slightly larger and will therefore in most cases cost slightly more
:bulletred: 250$ for unicorns and earth ponies
:bulletorange: 275$ for pegasi (they take quite a bit more fabric and effort to make the wings)
:bulletyellow: 280$ for alicorn OCs that are the SAME SIZE AND PROPORTIONS as my regular ponies(i.e. regular mare/stallion type body, only with both wings and a horn).

    THE MANE 6 (AND FRIENDS):
    I get so many questions about these ponies that I will list their prices here. 
         :bulletpink: Pinkie Pie - $250
         :bulletpurple: Rarity - $280
         :bulletyellow: Fluttershy - $275
         :bulletwhite: Twilight Sparkle (wingless) - $270
         :bulletorange: Applejack WITH HAT - $290
         :bulletblue: Rainbow Dash - $325 (the mane hikes the price)
         :bulletwhite: Derpy Hooves - $275
         :bulletblue: Vinyl Scratch - $290 ($310 with glasses)
         :bulletyellow: Spitfire - $290 ($315 with goggles)
         :bulletpurple: Princess Twilight (open wings) $330
         :bulletpink: Foalsitter Cadance (open wings) $350

Starting Prices for Laying Ponies (Same proportions as mares, 10" to the top of the head and 18" from hooftip to hooftip)
    :bulletred: $265 for earth ponies and unicorns
    :bulletblue: $290 for pegasi (they take quite a bit more fabric and effort to make the wings)
    :bulletred: $295 for alicorn OCs that are the SAME SIZE AND PROPORTIONS as my regular ponies.

Starting Prices for Sitting Ponies (10" to the top of the head)
:bulletblue: $210 for earth ponies and unicorns
:bulletred: $220 for pegasi with small, filly style wings or closed wings
:bulletblack: $240 for pegasi with larger, posable wings
As always, these are the starting prices and subject to change with level of complexity.

Starting Prices for Fillies (10 inches)
:bulletred: Simple Earth Ponies, Unicorns and Pegasi: 155$
:bulletyellow: Royal Fillies (including crown, shoes and necklace): 215$
:bulletgreen: 15$ charge for adding cutie marks

Princesses
Princesses are BY FAR the most complicated ponies that I make. They require an awful lot of fabric, and an even more awful amount of work. I get a lot of questions about pricing, so I've finally decided to post prices here. Princesses are difficult enough that I don't really want to be making them all the time. Any alicorn or princess-type OC pony that is similarly (or more) complicated will be priced accordingly. The price given is the one I would charge for either Celestia or Luna - depending on mane complexity and level of detail for a character, the price may change.

:bulletblue: $500 for 16" princesses
:bulletorange: $700 for huge 24" princesses

Shipping for these ponies varies a lot. It is usually under $60 for shipping within North America, but the one time I sent one of these babies overseas, it was a $180 shipping endeavor.

Starting Prices AND DIFFERENT RULES for Mini Ponies
Minis will not be taken as regular commissions - I will post special commission journals when I am willing to take on mini commissions.
  • The base price is $90, covers a SIMPLE minipony earth pony, pegasus, unicorn or alicorn in filly style (with eyes/expression of your choice)
  • The following things are extra (note me for a quote):
  • Cutie marks (which may need to be simplified at this size - i.e. one butterfly on each of Fluttershy's flanks instead of three)
  • Complicated hair, especially with many colors
  • Body patterning (which must be simple to be doable in this format)
  • Accessories
  • I will not do princesses with regalia, or any clothes (other than simple accessories) at this size because I value my sanity
  • These commissions will not be randomly drawn like my regular ones. They will be selected on a "this project interests me and therefore I will choose to do it" basis.
  • The full price must be paid up front before I start, so that I am able to work on them between other projects when I have time.
  • Shipping for minis is $10 in North America or $13 overseas.

I WILL do commissions for very large ponies or princesses, BUT they will be EXPENSIVE (two to three times the price of normal ponies). Note me for quotes.

SIDE NOTES
     :bulletgreen: OCs are welcome (I love making OCs)
          :bulletblack: I will need a good clear drawing of your OC and cutie mark
     :bulletblue: Wild, difficult, multi-colored or very poofy manes and tails will add to the base price.
     :bulletgreen: Changes in pattern will add to the base price
     :bulletblue: Clothes are extra, and pricing is determined on a case-by-case basis.
    

SHIPPING
     :bulletpink: Shipping to the US and Canada
          :bulletpurple: I use standard Canada Post shipping by default (2 weeks to most places in NA), tell me if you want faster shipping (more expensive)
          :bulletpurple: Shipping for fillies and sitting ponies is $15
          :bulletpurple: Shipping for full size ponies is $25, Laying ponies is $30
     :bulletpink: International Shipping
          :bulletpurple: I use Canada Post airmail shipping by default (2 weeks to most places). I no longer ship standard Canada Post Internationally - it takes too long and the longer the package is in transit, the greater the chance it will be lost.
          :bulletpurple: Shipping for fillies and sitting ponies is $20
          :bulletpurple: Shipping for full size ponies is $40, Laying ponies is $45

NOTE ME FOR PRICING QUESTIONS

I require half payment a week in advance of starting your commission - I will not start the commission until your payment is confirmed!

You definitely do have some beautiful plushes, and a starting price for $250 isn't that bad.

Although I'm a tad curious on something... How would you go making a crystal pony?

Hm, I'm actually not sure how I'd go about it. I do have airbrushing capabilities now, but I don't think I know enough about technique to get a crystal effect on the fabric, at least not without a LOT of experimenting. I would probably try using a crushed velvet fabric or something similar to get a shimmer effect on the coat.

Hmm, well, I could always go without the crystal effect.  It's a nice touch but it's only been shown...I think once or twice in the show, and that's when the empire was brimming with hope and love.  I'd be satisfied with just an airbrushed mane! Although I'm sure a crystal pony hikes the price up a bit since it's a little more work but I was just curious! c:

That's true. And yes, the complex crystal hairstyles would make them pricier.

Do you think you may quote me if I give you a ref of my pony OC? Y'know to see how much she would be?
