Fabric Wishlist

Post  TRS Reala on Fri May 25, 2012 3:45 pm

Here's a great way to cheer Silk up if you're not totally cheap or just too young to buy things. Although since forumakers doesn't allow small children here, it seems unlikely that anyone here can't pitch in.

And don't worry, you won't go unrewarded. You'll go on a list to have a plush of your choice made and sent to you. It'll be roughly the same value of whatever you donate.
Beware, this is a long list...

Silk wants the following for her plush making:

FURS:

3 Tone Fur
Any of these, but especially the red and black. Blue would also be nice. Clawz could use a makeover.


Brandy Fox Fur
Don't freak out, it's fake... but any of these.


Extra Long Furs
Silk always needs fake furs, they're hard to find. She'll even accept scraps of them, any color, any age. She washes it all before sewing, so a little dirt is okay too.


Husky Fur
Yup, more fur. Silk would be making tons of little woodland creatures if she had it.


Monkey Shag
Well, this one has an unfortunate name, and the place has only one type. But if you find it someplace else, it will be just as good.


Rabbit Fur
Duh, it's fake. As if Silk would ask for dead animal hide... you barbarians...


Solid Long Hair Fur
Any of them. Dark blues and reds will make Clawz happy, though. Give the cat a makeover! We'll raffle off Clawz's old body when this happens.


Sparkle Fur
I blame this one solely on NiGHTS' influence on Silk... sparklepants, that other girl called him...heh. If only she knew how right she was...


Striped Feathered Fur
This would make nice chicken plushes, probably why Silk wants it so bad.


Striped Wolf Fur
Not that I care, but Silk is actually fairly good at making stuffed animals. Get her some fur like this and she'll prove it.


Wolf Fur
For your non striped wolves... who ever heard of a striped wolf anyway?

And that's all the fur for now. Silk will love any other furs you find, too. Sometimes the local thrift shop or fabric store will have scraps for affordable prices. Take a look.



VELVETS

Crushed Velvet
Silk uses a lot of this stuff, mainly for those dragons she loves to make, but also for costumes and accessories. She keeps claiming that she wants to make me and the other NiD characters out of it. That's some big motivation for you buying her some, right? Right?! Yes. Yes, it is.


Velour
And Silk uses velour even more often than the crushed velvet. Any colors you send will make her sing for joy, by the way... she's weird like that.


Velvet
Plain old velvet, this is also good, especially for bigger plushes.


SATIN

Bridal Satin
Silk once started making JoD NiGHTS out of this stuff. Buy her some and maybe she'll finish... or better yet, buy her the colors to make the JoD Reala.


Charmeuse Satin
Silk says that this would be "awesome for dragon wings or underbellies." So yeah.


Crushed Satin
Same thing, but crushed. Why do you humans like to torture your fabrics anyway?



DELICATES:
Glitter Net
Again, I blame this on NiGHTS' influence. Silk says it's great for detailing, like Princess Luna's mane... whatever floats her dreamboat, I guess...


Organza
Same idea, less see through. Silk loves this stuff even though I hardly ever see her using it...


MINKY
This here is Silk's all time favorite fabric. If you want to make her ridiculously happy and love you for years to come, this is what you buy her.

Flat Mink
This is what the first Rainbowdash and Loki the Ulvecorn were made out of. Look in her plush gallery to see them.


Baby Mink
Despite the misleading title, this is minky fabric for making baby blankets and toys. It's not made from baby minks.
Silk especially wants pale pink, blue, green, and lavender so she can make something for her nephew.


Mink Velvet
Silk hasn't thought of a project to make with this yet, she just likes how it looks. Maybe leg warmers or hats or scarves? if you send any, share any ideas you have for it.


Minky Dots
This is Silk's first choice for making that toy for her nephew. Same deal as with the baby mink.



MISC

Grab Bags
These are just mystery bags full of different fabrics, each roughly the same color.
Silk just goes wild for them, for some reason. Sometimes they have fabrics that she especially wants. The last had a kind of suede that she says will be perfect for teddybear paws.


Sewing Tools
Because it takes more than fabric to make a plush... Silk especially likes the tailor's chalk.
All this stuff is sold together, so don't bother selecting any items.



LAME
It's pronounced "Lom A" Okay? Okay.

Lame
Silk loves this for detailing, or just adding a little sparkle. It's a thin material, so less is more. Send as much as you want though, Silk never says no to any fabrics.

Liquid Lame
More of a vinyl type material, this is harder to work with but Silk will be beside herself if anyone donates any of these. She especially likes the copper and red.


SEQUIN
Again, it's all NiGHTS' fault...

Sequined
Good for shiny dragons, Silk thinks these sequins could pass for scales. Or just pretty gloves or whatever. It's cheap, so why not?


SUEDE
Silk's favorite material for making "Firelizards," which are actually copyrighted to Todd McCaffrey, and were created by his mother, Anne McCaffrey.

These are Silk's all time favorite plush to make, so if you want to make her smile... yeah, you know the rest.
All Suedes
It should be noted that firelizards are only ever gold, bronze, brown, blue, or green. But Send other colors anyway, Silk will definitely be happy to get them.


VINYL
Silk's least favorite material to stitch, but she always loves the results anyway.

Clear Vinyl
Silk's a big Haunted Mansion fan, and the robots wear this stuff in the ride. Buy her some so she can make accurate plush versions of them.


Gator Vinyl
I have never seen an alligator come in any of these colors, but okay... Silk will probably make dragons with it.


Reptilian Vinyl
Does it really need to be said that she just wants to make more dragons...?


Snakeskin Vinyl
Still dragons...


Glitter PVC
This was what she made the wings of the mini Nightopian out of. She swore to never use it again, but apparently she changed her mind... weirdo.



BURLAP

Burlap
Sackboy, anyone? I can't think of any other reason for Silk to want this. I mean she's an avid gardener, but even so...


FELT
This is what Silk uses most, especially for prototypes.
This store has no goldenrod, but she can always use more for when she makes dolls of me. It's a darker yellow, almost orange. She also uses it for Jackle's gloves.

Felt
Burgundy is another color that she likes to collect, but she'll use any that you send in.


FLEECE
The most popular fabric for plush dolls and stuffed animals.

Polar Fleece
It's not from either of the planet's poles, by the way...



So there you go, a long, long, very long list of what Silk would love to have for her shop.


If you're too cheap for that but less cheap than others, you can also just send a couple dollars or whatever to her paypal account. It's cornsilkdreamer@gmail.com
No refunds, so be sure you know what you're doing!
Donators will of course be thanked by the TRS cast in one of our videos.

Aside from the online store that every link takes you to, DR?
Any fabric store will have this sort of thing. Lots of craft stores, too.


Rather than dwelling on every fabric and making it an impossible task, why don't you just make it easy for yourself and donate whichever list item you can obtain in your area?
Think small, you'll be surprised at how much more you can accomplish that way.

I think it's easiest for you to use the link that Eclipse shared. Buy something online and it should get sent to Silk if you select it off her wishlist.

Again though, you can also just send a smaller amount to her paypal if you're having trouble. You can send her money to go toward buying the fabrics that she likes, and it means just as much!


Also remember that this helps the show.
Like Reala said, Clawz will be getting a makeover. And then his (soon to be) cast off form that we know now will either be raffled or auctioned off to some lucky viewer.
He's one of a kind, so that'll be the only time anyone will ever have a chance to own a regular cast member from actual videos!

Not fabric, but I'm also in the market for a working Teddy Ruxpin, or Grubby.
If I can get a few working models, I can make some new plush skins and tapes, and make them into whatever I want.
Maybe animatronic TRS XD

That and those toys were just plain awesome. I'd love to have one to amuse my nephew with anyway.
If anyone has one that still works (mouth moves, eyes move, sound comes out when you press play) please let me know!
Dirty fur is fine, I can always replace it.

If you donate fabric, great!
It's easiest to just buy something off my Amazon wishlist though, since that gets sent straight to me without anyone needing an address.

But please don't double post. Just edit your last post instead.

When Clawz gets redone, how will the raffle for the old Clawz plush be handled?

I'd be more in favor of a raffle than an auction. That way Silk will get paid for her work through each ticket purchase, but the winner will still get the plush for very cheap. It seems more fair to everyone than an auction.


I wonder if the original TRS Clawz will end up on some other show. That would be interesting!

A raffle could be fun. Ebay isn't exactly seller friendly, so if i did auction, it would be an informal one with people just posting offers.
But yeah, I like the raffle idea. I'm not sure what I'd charge per ticket though, I doubt many people will enter and I can't really let the old Clawz go if I don't make back what it's worth. Or at least what the materials were worth.

Maybe You & Clawz should Make a Youtube Vid discussing the idea to them? I Think You can reach more people & have them bounce off Ideas to the Plush's Future.

By "them," I assume that you mean the viewers on youtube, DR.

Let's not forget that none of this can happen until Silk gets the fur that she needs to finish Clawz's new form.
Want to know how many of you have been generous enough to donate at least one dollar, or the equivalent in your country, to help Silk come closer to purchasing the fabric?
Zero.


Not one of you can be bothered to give the lowest amount (even though that measly dollar would get them a public shout out...),, so Silk is justified in expecting a low turnout once she raffles off the plush.


The silent youtube viewers are not here, you are. So before you scold us for not trying hard enough, answer this... Why won't YOU support us?
If the people coming to the forum and wanting to see this happen can't be relied on, why should we expect any more of the people who barely even comment on our videos?
Let's not have any more posts about how we should advertise more to reach more people, and such, until at least one person from this forum sends in just one silly dollar toward Clawz's fur.
