How do I adopt a weebeast
All weebeasts go up for adoption here every two weeks, along with some limited edition variants throughout the year. If you’d like a heads up for this along with other announcements you can join the weemail newsletter (which is sent out the day before each update with all info) or check in on my Instagram bio. Next update info is always there as well.
What is the weemail?
WeeMail (email newsletter) is sent the day before each update sharing info and photos of all the Weebeasts in the update, along with a preview of their specimen cards,  pricing of them and any custom spaces that will be available.
You can join the Weemail over on the bottom of the page. 
If you join please ADD greetings @ weebeasts .com ( without  spaces) to your saved contacts/ email address book to make sure it doesn’t go to your spam folder. 😉
I’m most active on Instagram if you follow me on there you can also turn on post notifications for my account just for the day or two before the update you can be sure you see the posts I make leading up to it. 
(Instagram.com/nicholelillianryan) hope to see you there!
What about my info and payments?
I accept payments through Shopify Payments. Shopify is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. This compliance extends to all online stores powered by Shopify, including mine. Shopify has all the same securities and payment fraud protection as leading payment processors like Paypal. I have no access to any of your financial payment information through any of my payment options. Your personal info and data will never be shared for anything beyond your order (ie your address to the postal service to ship). It will never shared or sold. Not even for the stalest popcorn.

Adoption Advice
Here are some helpful tips for you to have best chances at getting the weebeast of your dreams because they have sold out within a few minutes, so it’s best to be prepared.
  • Adding an item to your cart DOES NOT hold it or prevent someone else from buying, whoever’s goes through the checkout process first gets the item. 
  • Set up an account here on my website before hand, then go to your account page to add and save an adresss, this will save you time and you won’t have to checkout as a guest. 
  • Have all of your info ready at the time of the update, just in case.
  • Be prepared and bookmark the website to refresh the page a few minutes before the scheduled time.
  • Have an idea of who you want to adopt before hand (remember the WeeMail and Instagram will have previews). Don’t spend much time deciding who you want or you may miss it.
  • As of right now, I do NOT have a limit to the of Weebeasts you can adopt per update. 
* Cross your fingers and hope you get the Weebeast of your dreams!

Customs & Commissions 
Do you offer customs?
Yes I do.
How do I get a custom?
Customs are currently offered in shop updates as an item for purchase , by purchasing that item you are reserving your spot to have a custom weebeast made just for you. 
Current Custom pricing:
Custom BB weebeasts starting price at $38
Custom weebeasts starting price at $100
Customs include any of the basic weebeastiness:
A solid base color with accents of spots stripes, your choice of eye color, cyclops or two eyes, facial expression, pose, horns, ears or antennae, and a stone up to $5 in value, a hand colored and written and signed specimen card, wee egg, and boxed nicely just for you!
Prices do adjust from the starting price for gradients/ombré or  swirled mixes of color, tentacles (legs made with octopus suckers) wings, difficult poses, "wiggly" jointed limbs, specific markings coloring requests etc...

Once you purchase the reserved listing it we can discusss what you'd like for your custom, and I can set up any additional costs here or PayPal for the remaining balance if needed.
Just like all weebeasts for adoption, purchasing a  custom or commission piece does not transfer any reproduction rights to you. I reserve the right to use your custom / commission, photos of it, any info on its specimen card at my discretion for any purpose. of course, if I share on Instagram and you’d like to be tagged, I’m happy to do so. 
Will you make me a copyrighted subject?
No, sorry I won't. To sell anothers work you legally need a license in order to sell and profit from it, be it a big company or another small artist. I will not do it, and I sure wouldn’t want it done to me. 
Do you do trades?
No, sorry, I am so far behind in them that I'm afraid I will no longer be taking on any more at this time, sorry.
What care does my weebeast need?
To help your weebeast last for years please avoid prolonged sunlight or extreme temperatures. ( ie: car dashboard ) Although they are waterproof, avoid submerging in water for extended periods of time, as they can can become grumpy little soggy popcorn. Wire is used in delicate areas, such as anteannae, but please handle with care. Polymer clay is quite durable and is a plastic once cured but it can still break if dropped, especially at jointed areas. They do love adventures so if you take them along I recommend parking them in little plastic container with cotton balls, a piece of popcorn as a snack, he hee.

What clay do you use?
I use Premo Polymer Clay
What are some clay tips you have?
I always point people to search for 'polymer clay tutor' on YouTube, you can’t go wrong there!
How do you keep white clay clean?
It's not easy haha. Use baby wipes for surface and tools, lint rollers and a piece of white scrap clay to roll in your hands before touching your project and wearing light color shirt helps any lint from picking up on to the clay and if it does scotch tape helps pick it off or with “twisting” rubbing alcohol on a small q tip on raw clay, but only do this when you are all done because it dries out the clay. 
When ever I use white clay
I found its is always best mixed this way:
1/3 white clay
1/3 white translucent 
1/3 pearl 
( add a pinch of Sparkley white too if you want, it’s fun!)
 It’s still white and beautiful and it makes such a big difference in the linty bits!
 If you don’t want pearl just mix in 
2/3 white
1/3 translucent
What tools to you use?
You can see many photos of them often my instagram, most of the tools I use aren't made for clay specifically, I just use what works for me. small dotting tools, dental tools, needles... toothpicks, tooth brushes, straws, ceramic tools etc... have fun you never know what you'll find!
How do you make the eyes?
I make my own eyes for the weebeasts that are safe for baking. I have learned this on my own over time. I prefer not to discuss this in detail, but you can find many polymer clay eye tutorials online and adapt one that suits you!
Do you bake the earth treasures?
It’s a good question, but there isn’t a straight answer to it. I’ve put a lot of my time and trial and error into figuring out which stones have the qualities and right mineral composition to be safely baked at the temps I use, because some do not do well and may shatter, crack or discolor or even crack your piece from overheating or expanding while baking.
Something else?
