Welcome to the home of the Beastlies!
Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!
#3 of today’s mini challenge: only make Beastlies in poses I don’t typically use. Focus on conveying story in gestures. This one sort of half worked.05/29/15

Why don’t you make a shelf like that?
Because I’m terrible at building. But I do know someone who’s shown a willingness to tolerate me using her tools and knowhow.05/29/15

Have you considered doing a terrarium setup for the Beastlies?
I have, but since most of my non-Beastlies work is pretty terrarium-heavy, I don’t want to confuse the two groups any more than is necessary. On the other hand, I forgot to include my cast resin Fillimanders in my table design sketch, and those would be perfect for terrarium-based displays! :)05/28/15
My ideal table display. A little shelf unit like that in the right dimensions is harder to find than I would have guessed. Okay I swear I’m going to stop posting about this and get back to work now.05/28/15
Do you take pictures of good displays? Or even of your displays?
I think I have a folder somewhere of displays I like… For my own, I’ve tried a handful of different things. From woodsy/naturey/sceney:
to clean white as much as possible:
Neither is working for me right now.05/28/15
I was lucky enough this year to have both my parents (who used to do craft shows) and my friend portlypossum’s advice for my own display. A good display really does make such a difference
It really does!! My curse is that I have high standards and keen eye for recognizing a good display, but somehow that doesn’t help me MAKE one any better. I can just TELL that it’s not great but I can’t seem to fix it. Why is that my thing? Did I piss off a Greek god or something?05/28/15
One of my main problems in that vein is finding good Beastlies stands that match a nice way to display the onesies or shirts, as well as Nibblets, lake monsters, and other things. Not to mention signage. I’m weird and picky about things like display and package design and it bugs me when I’m not putting forward a good table that reads as one unit. The job I think needs to exist is like an interior decorator for con tables. SOMEONE BE THAT.05/27/15
After this bout of travel, I’m now obsessed with figuring out a cute solution that is basically a fold out crate that can serve as both transport and display. I’ll talk at you about it soon.
I just go to cons I can drive to (shipping 100 Beastlies? No.) so the transport is the least of MY worries, but I bet you could come up with something pretty genius.05/27/15
