About

Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! BlankoCrafts is run by me. I handle every step of the process from the communication to the customer service to the production to the shipping. I work from my apartment in Philadelphia, working full time as a Flight Attendant, while managing this shop. I started making my own Kigurumis in 2011 and haven't looked back since. Apart from work, I am a pilot and fly planes for fun!

Besides crafting Kigurumis, I love making other art and dabble in a little bit of everything. In High School and College I majored in visual arts, so creating art has followed through with me. It's been a hugely rewarding process and I can't express enough how appreciative I am of every single one of my customers who believes in my art. Thank you all so much!

Commitment to the Environment
I strive to make my shop as environmentally friendly as possible. Realistically, no one person or one small business can ever reverse or stop the damage that big corp and big oil is doing. However, there are small things that can be done to reduce some impact:
No fabric scraps or thread scraps go into the trash: I upcycle every bit of fabric scrap and do different things with it. Usually, I add it into stuffing for pillows or dog beds, and donate them. I also create other products that are listed on my shop.
Paper used for patterning: Custom made Kigurumis patterns that are not reused get shredded and used as crinkle paper type cushions for packaging of fragile products to be shipped.
Shopping Locally, when able: I make every attempt to shopping locally for supplies when able. This is obviously not perfectly figured out, as prices and product availability is a big variable, but if there are materials I can purchase from locally ran and owned businesses, this helps reduce shipping offsets as well as supporting the local community I live in.

Express shipping options are not available because I work a full time job that requires me to be away from my studio for days at a time, so I cannot consistently guarantee it. If you are looking for a Rush option for a Custom Kigurumi, please see below for your options.
