When commissions are open, there will be a link to a quote application form on this page and on all social channels. I try and engage with potential clients a month before the opening so it’s not out of the blue.
Please only fill out a form if you are serious about commissioning at the time of opening. Base prices can be found under ‘Pricing’ if you are unsure. If you receive a quote, it will only be honoured for the current commission opening and cannot be brought forward to future openings - a new form will be requested to be submitted.
The form is very straightforward, asking you questions about the kind of suit you want, expressions, any extras, etc. The form is live for about 5 to 7 days, so there’s no need to rush your entry. The only solid requirement for submitting a form, is having a clear, un-shaded 2-3 sided reference sheet. There are a myriad of talented artists out there that can help with your reference and if you’re really stuck, there is also free lineart documents you can use. Failure to provide a reference will mean the application is automatically discarded.
An example of a 2-sided reference sheet of ‘Kopakonan’, our Selkie Suits mascot. ‘Kopa’ was created from scratch by the extremely talented Sketchbuck, please check out their work: https://www.sketchbuck.com
Applicants are NOT taken on a first come, first serve basis, so please fill out the form correctly, there’s plenty time to do so.
Full, half suit and bodysuit commissions will require a duct tape dummy (DTD), no exceptions. DTDs are to be sent 2 months before you’re work begins on your suit, I will provide that estimate time for you. Full instructions of my personal DTD requirements will be given in a follow up email when your deposit payment has been accepted. Failure to provide a DTD to the standard asked, may result in a surcharge being demanded. I realise and sympathise that DTD creation can be physically demanding, but it will give the absolute best fitting results, especially so, if my guidelines are adhered to. Before commissioning, please research duct tape dummies if you are considering a bodysuit.
Once processed, successful applicants will be contacted within 72 hours of the closing date. If you were unsuccessful, unfortunately you will not be contacted due to increasing demand for my work. The applicant’s commission slot will only be guaranteed once the invoice has been sent and the deposit payment has been processed. We ask that deposits are paid within 5 days. Failure to provide the deposit will void the invoice and the slot will be given to another applicant immediately.
We ask again, please only submit an application if you are serious about Selkie Suits creating your bespoke, beloved character. If you have any questions, please get in touch via the ‘Contact’ form.
