[Art] Pocket Werewolf Plush

I decided to make a tiny version of the werewolf that would be easier to carry around the convention. I finished him today! This one does not have an armature, so he can’t be posed, it’s more a beanie style body. But he does have a tail! He’s a little chubby, I guess he’s been eating too many people!


I think if I could cast the head and paws I could make these really quickly. Still working out the body pattern too though.

Finally done! I had a minor disaster yesterday with the sealant, I guess it got too thick in some parts and lifted paint off so I had to go back and do repairs. I think if I do any more plush using Apoxie, I will have to make the head smaller because it is quite heavy and I couldn’t attach it the way I had originally planned. So his head cannot turn, but all of his limbs and spine can bend, he has a plastic armature inside.


As you can see from the photos on my bed he is quite big! Originally I had planned to take him with me to the horror convention but I’m worried he might get bumped around and scratch his paint. I still need to think about that. He also needs a name!

He’s almost done! Today I finished sculpting the paws. I tried something different with this one, sculpting them directly onto the armature. I think it will make them stronger, but we’ll see! I didn’t like how the claws looked so I just put the toe beans on. Tomorrow he’ll hopefully get painted though I do have some errands to do, then it’s time for assembly.

I had some leftover clay, so I made a bunch of cat noses. I plan to make another try at a jointed Cathar pattern, to use up all the tiger/lynx/panther fur that I have. I think they’re pretty cute.

The body is all sewn now! I need to finish sculpting the paws and then paint everything, and he’ll be ready to assemble.

[OOC] Officially Summer!

With the fur stash migration from my closet to our (totally retro wood-panel) TV room, summer has officially started!

My plan is to start patterning and cutting the werewolf tomorrow, and alternate with cleaning since I have a lot of that. I bought a cute bunny pattern on Etsy, I can’t sell them but I can certainly make them for myself and I intend to do that!

I’m working on a plush werewolf, hoping to have him done in time for the horror convention in July. This is what I have so far, I’m pretty happy with how he looks — his teeth look funny because he’s missing his canines and lips though. He’s VERY heavy, I hope it won’t mess up the final plush but not sure if Apoxie is the best material for plush. I need to learn how to cast resin!

[OOC] Banjo Clone is here!

Back in February I heard about this site, Cuddle Clones, that will make a plush that looks like your pet. They can do pretty much any animal, even snakes, birds, etc. You upload photos of your pet to the site, and then the plush is custom made based on that. Mine finally arrived today! He’s soooo cute! And much bigger than I expected him to be, you can sort of see the scale of him next to my Mini Heather, who is 18 inches high. I dressed him in one of Banjo’s bandanas đŸ™‚

They’re pretty pricey, the cost for a dog or cat is $249, which they raised just after I ordered mine, guess I was lucky! And you will have to wait several months (6 in my case), but it’s a great way to remember your pet.
