I'm sure a lot of you have heard of the animatronic cat ears called "Nekomimi," and maybe even seen some in action at conventions. And you might have also heard about the prototype animatronic tail, "Shippo." Well, have you heard that it's going into mass production under the name Tailly?
The producer of the tails, which will be activated by your pulse, has started a fundraiser to launch the product line via Indiegogo. Now's your chance to preorder one for yourself! You can get them with just a white tail, or pay a little more and get four different color fur-sleeves for the tail. You can also buy two-packs, 10-packs, and vendor-sized 40-packs! (A great idea for groups and costume/suit makers!)
The prices are really reasonable, if you've ever tried to get a furry tail, let alone one that MOVES. Especially when you buy one of the bundles. I know where a little bit of my tax return is going! Please spread the word and reserve yours, I'd love to see this succeed <3TAILLY on indiegogo
In personal news, I'm still on the lookout for an office job. I have my fingers crossed that something will sort out soon, we sorely need the income after being unemployed post-move for four months now. The job market's hard everywhere @.@ To ease our financial pain, I'm making jewelry and taking digital commissions. My jewelry starts at $5 per piece, up to $30, and art commissions start at $10 and go up from there. I do 3D pet portraits for $25, and larger 3D bipedal character commissions starting at $50. They can be a finished piece, or a ref sheet with turnaround. I'll have a polished price sheet with references soon, for now, please browse my gallery. My most recent journal before this one has a summary of estimated prices and examples to go with them.
