Rehoming request :( [25 Mar 2017|09:33am]

Hey guys, long time no post! I'm not sure if this community is active anymore or if anyone will see this, but I'm trying to cover all my bases.

Due to life circumstances, I am looking to rehome my woodbabies. :( I have three baby gryphons and a Jhari's Cat, and am particularly attached to the cat.. so I'd like to sell the gryphons. I'm flexible on price, I'm not out to make a big buck or anything.

I've posted here before, but who knows how to dig up old posts? So here are some quick descriptions:

Gryphon 1: White fur, black plastic body, main accents silver. Dark blood red eyes.
Gryphon 2: Natural brown/black fur, pheasantlike wings and ears (very big feathery ears on this one), black plastic body, main accents gold. Bright green eyes.
Gryphon 3: Natural tan fur with black fur around the "mane" area. Black wing and ear feathers with a green iridescent sheen. Main accents gold. Pearly green eyes.

If anyone is interested, please e-mail me at rielsath@gmail.com and I can send you pictures! And if anyone else has suggestions as to where I would be able to find buyers for these wonderful puppets, feel free to drop a line as well (though I won't sell on eBay/Amazon).

Adopted my first ! [23 Sep 2012|03:36pm]

I adopted my first woodbaby yesterday! She is gorgeous. She is a catsheidhe. Black and burgundy. The gentian at the Maryland renn Faire changed her eyes from red to black silver and I fell in love. I named her Mink. I can't believe I bought a puppet but I fell for her. I placed her near my writing space do she has become muse!

Woodbabies for sale [27 Aug 2012|12:55pm]

EDIT: Aedus and Kieran have found a home together. :)

Hey everyone.  Long time no post (old user name was moonshinetears)  I'm a bit in a financial crisis (trying to sell my old horse tack as well as fair stuff I don't use anymore) and I've decided that I need to sell at least 2 of my 5 woodbabies.  I don't have pictures currently with me at work, but I can get them tonight (at least current pics. I have them from old posts on here).  I am selling my custom dragon Aedus.  He was an ebay purchase a few years ago that I won (pics of him can be seen here: http://woodparents.livejournal.com/174521.html).  I'm also selling my wolf Kieran (pics here: http://woodparents.livejournal.com/134977.html#cutid1  He's the brown and black wolf).  I'm looking for good homes for them seeing as though I don't go to faire much anymore and I'm afriad with them around that they may break.  They've been sitting my room for years now-- Aedus has been to faire once and out only a handful of times.  Kieran I don't think has left the house at all.  I'd like them to be able to get out and be shown off.  I'm keeping my other 3 at this time as I may take one to a con in November.

There is a possibility I may sell the other 3 (most likely not as Shera, my grey/black wolf is closest to my fursona; Artemis my griffin is my first woodbaby and Nariko is a custom kitsune I got a number of years ago), if that happens I will post again here before listing them on ebay or such.

A couple of babies for sale! [19 Nov 2011|12:11am]

Hey guys, I just wanted to post this here so you guys have a chance at these two lovelies before I decide to list them on an auction site (which will probably be in a day or so, just wanted you guys to have the first shot!). :D

These two are older models, but have been lovingly looked after and are in great condition. The heads both move just fine and the fur is plush and gorgeous still.

The first one is a Jhari's Cat.

Big fuzz under here!Collapse )
And the second one is a Bosom Buddy Caitshidhe.
Baby fuzz under hereCollapse )
I'm willing to entertain (reasonable!) offers! I would love to see these two go to loving homes. :3

Range of head motion? [09 Oct 2011|04:53am]

[ mood | curious ]

I got a red hatchling gryphon this weekend, and I'm curious about whether his range of motion is quite right. His head has fantastic, smooth up-and-down motion, but it takes a lot of twisting effort to get any left-right movements. Even twisting the cap 360° only get just a bit of a head turn, and it just wants to turn left, not right. I didn't play with other hatchling gryphons, only other models, but I suspect this isn't the full range of motion I should be expecting?

Thoughts? I'm having trouble getting the sort of birdlike natural movement that I was hoping for due to this limited movement. I'll be back at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in a couple of weeks before it ends, so I figure I could talk to the MSKD folks then, but I thought I'd check with LJ to see what you guys think!

small bird woodbaby? [21 May 2011|12:19pm]

I'm thinking about getting another baby for my collection! I haven't gotten a new one in about 5 years! I currently have three dragons: Phantom, Spook, and Specter. They're all black/grey/silvery. I want something a little different, but I'm also interested in having something modeled after a real creature. I don't want another shoulder-draper, so I was looking into the ones that sit upright. That's about when I fell in love with the birds! :P I've always loved the look of the phoenixes, but I'm not sure I can afford the $265 pricetag right now! Then I saw that they made a smaller bird... not the handheld size, but a small parrot for around $100. I was wondering if anyone had any pics of that model, since I really wanna know what they look like on your shoulder.

It would be really fun to have a pair of ravens named Huginn and Muninn! (Or at least one of the pair!) But I don't want yet another all-black baby, since I have so much of that going on already. I think if I got a bird it would be a bird of prey: maybe a red-tailed hawk or a ferruginous hawk! Or even a kestrel.

Let me see your birds! I need inspiration. How well do they stay on your shoulder?

My first woodbaby [19 May 2011|04:30pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Hey! I've gotten a few drabbits before from the PA Ren faire, then I happened to stumble across woodbabies online. I heard a lot of things about how the woodbabies are much better than drabbits and I also heard some bad things about Albert Alfaro. Anyway, I got very intrested in woodbabies so emailed Bob like 1000 questions and now I finally ordered a baby phoenix! :) I can't wait for my new baby to come and I'm still trying to think of a name. So I just wanted to post this story here for whatever reason :)

Baby Unicorn for sale [18 Apr 2011|06:51pm]

As part of an upcoming move, I am cleaning out some of my things.  I would like to rehome this  lovely baby unicorn:
Baby Unicorn
I purchased him at Amethyst Cottage originally, and he arrived with a slightly malfunctioning head (does not move up very far).  I've called the shop and they said this would be included in the manufacturer's warranty, so you can ship him back to be fixed at any time.  

Asking $50.

Dragon [18 Apr 2011|10:55am]

The dragon has been sold. Thank you so much! <3

Hello fellow woodbaby owners.

I'm in a bit of a predicament and thought I might make a post here. To make a long story short, I recently purchased an expensive OOAK poseable dragon plush on eBay. Unfortunately, only a few days later, after taking my cat into the vet we found out he has cancer. Because he's only 2 years old, and I also own his brother, I would like to seek treatment for him. However, it's not going to be cheap. So I'm trying to sell the dragon I bought, along with a lot of other things. I'm going to try to hold onto my woodbabies, but because this dragon is brand new, I really feel I can't keep it anymore.

This dragon was going to be displayed along with my woodbabies. The face and feet are made out of clay, and the body is plush with wiring. It takes the sculpter, who goes by the name of WoodSplitterLee on deviantART, 58 hours to make one plush. I purchased it for $112 total, and am hoping to sell it for $95+10 shipping.

You can see the original ebay auction, as well as a lot of pictures, here.
