How would you like a fursuit for $50? [Oct. 22nd, 2012|07:38 pm]
Dokino Sam

In a continued effort to raise money for my children's show and to lay the foundation for my charity, I am trying to....liquidate my possessions. So what I am doing is having a raffle for my Sabretooth Tiger, Blintz, that was made by Noble. He is....I think 5 years old and is still in good shape, especially for the age. If you were at MFM this year, you may have seen him. I am 5'6 and he can fit roughly someone between the low 100's and 170/180 max. I am doing entries for $50 and will only do a raffle if I get at least 10 entries. If I don't get 10 entries, I will simply return the money.
I know that trust is hard to do, hard to earn, hard to keep, but I also believe heavily in karma. That even if you fool some people into giving you some money and keep it, that money will find a way of leaving you. And since I am doing this to do good beyond myself, I don't want to risk having karma come along down the line and destroy something I am working so hard to accomplish.
Shipping will be included, but I will only ship within the United States. I don't know anything about international shipping and I would hate to risk sending this outside the U.S.ofA. and having it go MIA or get destroyed.
I know that money is tight, but hopefully a good number of you all (the few who read my journal here) can spare the money and would like a good suit.

I am also selling all of the furry art I have commissioned over the years for $15 a piece. I have a goodly number of pieces of art, so if you want to have a look, let me know.

Also, if you have any questions about the suit or the show, please ask. And even if you don't want anything I am offering, if you could spread the word I would be HUGELY appreciative. I am so close to getting this show started and it could do a lot of good for kids and hopefully, by extension, adults too.

Need a little help, especially from artists and crafters [Sep. 11th, 2012|08:04 pm]
Dokino Sam
Hey all, I am working on the creation of a children's show and charity and am in need of some assistance. I am trying to coordinate an iron artist fundraiser and right now, I have 10 artists. I may have more, but with FA down currently, I don't know. What I am doing it asking for 20+ artists to contribute their skills to an iron artist thing. If you don't know, an iron artist thing is where an artist does 100 sketches or drawings or whatever in order to raise money, earn some scratch and so on. I am going to be one of the artists (crafter to be precise) in this.
Instead of asking for any artist to do a ton of work for this fundraiser, I am looking for at least 20 so that no artist will be responsible for more than 5 pieces of work. So I am looking for some more artists to help me raise some money. My goal is $2,000.
Now before you think I am just asking and not even considering that artists make a living from their skills (which I know) I am giving the artists $5 per piece of work. So if they do 5, I will give them $25. I know that isn't a lot, but it's a fundraiser. Ok, so each piece will be $20 and each artist decides what they will do for that money. If it's a sketch, it's a sketch, if it's a badge, it's a badge, if it's a full color picture, it's a full color picture. Now you may be asking, how do I get $2,000 by doing $2,000 of art and still give the $5 per picture. I have someone who is going to match $500 of money raised to start this thing out. So now you know.
And as an incentive to have artists donate their abilities at a discount, I am going to draw names for the two still in box kindle fire first generation devices. One is a brand new one, the other is a refurbished model, but neither has been opened. I will draw two names, one for each of the kindle fires.
If you would like to donate to my efforts for this show, I would truly appreciate this. This show and charity is a huge thing for me. It will combine my love of teaching, being a mascot, helping people stay healthy and give everyone an opportunity to live a long and exciting life.
So if you are an artist, know artists, are crafty, want to donate, please just say so.

Mah head! [Aug. 14th, 2012|06:40 pm]
Dokino Sam
I've been looking online while at Lion's Choice because AT&T DSl is dead in the midwest....and I canceled my account with them after a week of no net and suddenly inept employees who don't know how to look up an account by name, email and phone number.
That wasn't a sentence...

Ok, I've been looking online for a good tutorial for how to build a balaclava based fursuit head and while there are going ones, I do better with words and pictures over video. Does anyone have some good tutorials they can share for how to build a balaclava based fursuit head? Mostly the foaming aspect of it, making the shapes and all that. Anyone, anyone?

Ok....how to say this.

Would anyone want to donate towards a children's show? I am creating one and it is all out of pocket...and the moths are not happy that I keep bothering them.
I am looking to sell my sabrecat fursuit as well.
I am selling all my books and sports cards too, but my goal with those is to have people buy packs of the cards to be given to children in hospitals and the books to be given to old folks in retirement homes.

I am around 1500 short of starting this up, so if you would be interested in helping out in any way, it would be hugely appreciated...HUGELY!

Fursuit Creator Wanted ASAP [Jul. 19th, 2011|10:06 pm]
Dokino Sam
This will be for a professional sports team (Not me) and they need to find someone reasonable (through me) who is not going to charge an arm and a leg for a costume. I will go into greater detail to those who respond.

Here are the specifics. And I am saying this because I am a mascot and that is why they asked me to do this for them.

1. Must be well made. Strong stitching is a must. This is for a basketball team so it will be getting the crap beat out of it most likely.
2. Since this will be a mascot costume, it will be generic sized. By that, I mean meant to fit someone between such and such and such and such heights. Most likely between 5'6 and 5'10. So it isn't going to be snug. Which I will assume makes it a little easier to build.
3. The head will be a hockey helmet base. This is just a simpler way of making sure the head will fit various sized people while giving the head itself something sturdy to be built on.
4. This will be a shoes AND paws costume. That being said, a pair of paws and a pair of shoes will be utilized, but not at the same time.
I will go into further detail to those who respond.

MFM [Jul. 11th, 2010|08:44 am]

I know I know, I haven't posted anything in a long while. I think I am going to again, Facebook is just getting really...boring. Do I care that you just ate some barbeque? Or that you are going off to see some cover band?
Just saying.

I am thinking I might go to MFM this year. I missed last year and in previous years I just felt that I served no purpose. That is what bums me out in general, lacking a purpose. I want to do things that accomplish something, help someone, produces something. So I've come up with something that should be fun and be productive.

The first thing is that I want everyone to bring their baseball gloves to MFM. From what Tyger has told me, there is a baseball diamond at the new hotel and I'd like to play a game while there. Or maybe we can just play some kickball, who knows. I think fursuiters would be fine to do some practice stuff, but it is usually a billion degrees in that area with 400% humidity. So heat stroke is something to watch out for.

Now a second thing is, I will be recruiting probably 10 to 15 fursuiters for a project. You won't have to be on stage or anything. you just have to like hugs. More to come on that later.

A third thing. If I can, I plan on getting a table in the dealer's den. I can't draw, but what I going to be selling are my paperback books. I have a few hundred of em and I'm hoping to sell all of em, or at least enough to pay for my journey. I will also be selling stuffed animals with half of that going to Tiger Haven. All of this is dependent of my getting a table.

A fourth thing. I am hoping to have a new fursuit by then. I have the fur, have had it for months and months, so I am going to try building one.

Business Plan [Oct. 26th, 2009|11:26 am]
Dokino Sam
Does anyone know how to write a business plan? I've looked online and finding a template and instructions on what it all means has not produced anything helpful, so I figured I would check on here. Anyone have experience writing business plans?
