Twenty Percent Cooler by Tori-to-Pelloneus Twenty Percent Cooler by Tori-to-Pelloneus
Price: $50

To learn more about ordering, check out my journal: [link]

If you are interested in commissioning one of these, shoot me a note.






Anyway, about the hat.

It took me two days to make. Two grueling, horrible, sleep-deprived days. My hands are a pin-stabbed mess.

If you want, I'll even tell you how I made it.

Step 1: Design a pattern.
Step 2: Test pattern on scrap fabric. Admire your work.
Step 3: Cut out pieces of actual hat material.
Step 4: Try and sew it together.
Step 5: Fail.
Step 6: Try again.
Step 7: Fail again.
Step 8: Cry.
Repeat steps 6-8 until you're on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Step 9: Get a new idea and try that. Whine loudly like Rarity when things go wrong. Make sure to throw in that "This is the worst thing ever! THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING!!!!!!"
Step 10: Stay up until 3 AM working until you finally get it right.
Step 11: Cry.
Step 12: Go eat cookies because you have been starving yourself during the entire duration of the hat-building process.

I'm certainly not angry, but unfortunately I can't give away the pattern. It's a unique pattern that I worked hard to develop, and should it fall into the wrong hands, my business could be kaput.

What I can do is link you to a site with a good basic fleece hat pattern. [link]

Ears and mane can be sewn in along the top seams, and a basic pattern like this is very easily customizable. Good luck with your hat! :)

Sorry for the delayed response. ^^;

Anyway, yes I am still making pony hats, and I do do customs. Prices vary by complexity.

At the moment, however, I'm a bit backed up on commissions so I'm not taking new ones at the present time. I will, however, send you a note when I am open for commissions and I'll give you a quote. :D

Thanks,
-Michelle

Sweet. Currently I'm setting up to buy a full pony plush. But when I get a job or come across more cash I'll be happily anticipating your note. :3
The hat is so cool looking it's something I couldn't miss out on!

I've got a feeling this is gonna sell for at least $90. Everypony loves some good RD swag, and this is quite possibly the best there is.

I would never have enough money to win this in an auction, but I just wanted to let you know two things:
a) If I was rich enough to give you the dough you deserved for this, I would.
b) It heartens me to know that somewhere out there is someone whose creative process is just as full of tears and self-loathing as mine is.

Well, as for right now, I have no idea how much this would go for since I would be auctioning it. If I can find an easier method for sewing it I will probably take commissions, but for now it's one-of-a-kind. As for commission price, I have no idea yet.

I actually just now decided to take commissions for these. The price will be $50 because a lot of time and money goes into making them, and they are always top quality. I am on backorder, so I won't be able to make them for a few weeks, but this one will be going up for auction tomorrow on eBay (I will post a link when I have it.)

As for the commissions, feel free to note me if you're interested. :)

Not too bad. I have my own in progress with yarn hair. Hopefully the build won't involve as much whining, crying, or starvation.
