TIPS
  • Use clear photos. Good photography is very important when showing off your customs!
  • Tell me your inspiration. What looks like a flower to everyone else may have a symbolic meaning to you- we want to know!
  • Clean workmanship is key when making a custom.
  • Brush/style the hair. Seems simple, but it makes a big difference in overall appeal.
