Just letting you know about some of the changes happening over at Paul Pape Designs. First off, thanks to the good ole Postal Service, I have had to raise the price of shipping across the board. For toppers and other sculptures, this means you will now pay $32USD for Domestic shipping and $55 for International. For Chocomiis, Ore-naments and other smaller stuff, the price is $7USD for Priority and $20 for Express Mail. I only charge what the post office charges me plus the cost of materials to create the packaging. I am STRICTLY against padding shipping charges or charging "Handling" fees. I charge what it costs me, nothing more.
Secondly, I would like to announce that I am now selling Little Big Planet Figures and Cake Toppers. Each figure costs $150 and will be custom created based on your figure. I really enjoy making these and think they make a great keepsake. Since they are custom built from a wire armature on up, you can tell me the pose you want as well as the outfit. The wackier the better. They will end up being about 5" tall and can be paired up like this set here, or standalone. You can also tell me what the base should look like, since we all know it's the little things that make or break a collectible. You can order a Sackboy or Sackgirl of your very own HERE, at the Gaming Figures Store. Just scroll to the bottom of the page.
I also want to bring to your attention that I am also making some other, more random sculptures for weddings or general keepsakes. I just finished a nice Mario and Princess Peach sculpture for a great couple. I may not advertise everything I make, but if you have an idea but can't find a place to make it, run it past me. I haven't turned away anyone yet.
Lastly, there are several changes to the Miis that I make. Starting today I will be making Mii 3.0s. I have now made almost 600 Miis and through that journey have learned many things. All of this knowledge comes together to bring you the best customizable Miis to date. The Mii 3.0 is smaller (about 4 1/2" tall), and looks more like the game versions. Also, you can specify a POSE for your Mii. You like tennis, let me know and I can set you Mii in a serve pose, or putting a golfball. Any pose you want, I can make, but just to be clear, they are posed, not poseable. They are still static figures, just more dynamically posed. You can purchase the new Mii 3.0 HERE.
Also, I have discontinued the Midgrade Mii Cake Topper (since they were essentially the Deluxe Topper). For those of you still on a budget, I still offer the Basic Mii Cake Topper, which doesn't have the wedding attire, but can now be POSED just like the Mii 3.0s and the Deluxe Cake Toppers can. So no more carbonite freeze, deer-in-the-headlights looking cake toppers. The Toppers are now $200 for the Basic Mii Cake Topper and $300 for the Deluxe Mii Cake Topper, plus shipping. You can purchase your Mii Cake Topper HERE, in the Wedding Items section of the Geekery Store.
