Making of a Plush Video

For a while now I’ve been wanting to make a video showing the process of making one of my plush and this week I finally got it done!

And here’s the finished product! He’s so cuddly and HUGE; over 3″ taller than my standard size plush!

Although the video only takes about eleven minutes, in real time he took over three hours to complete. (That doesn’t include the time it took to draft new patterns for the beard and hair and enlarge the other pattern pieces for his body and clothes.)

I hope you enjoyed the video! I’d love to hear your comments on what you thought of this video and maybe some ideas for what you’d want to see in the future. I’ll have this plush available at NC Comicon in November!

Back from Vacation!

I’m back from vacation and back to work! Everything I had remaining after DragonCon has been inventoried and my Etsy shop is back up. If you’re looking for one of my stock characters and don’t see it, don’t worry! I ran out of a lot of characters at DragonCon, but I will be hard at work making more cuddly friends and restocking my Etsy shop as they’re completed. I already have one new character available.

DragonCon Wrap Up

DragonCon 2014 is over and I’m slowly recovering. A HUGE thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth, took home a stuffs, or even just spread the word about my cuddly creations! Handmade Stuffs had a crazy weekend and I did even better than I hoped to! (Which fortunately/unfortunately means I’m going to be a lot busier getting ready for NC Comicon than I expected.) I was also invited to a brand new convention, Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, and I’m very excited about it!

Despite being busy, I did manage to sneak away and get some fun stuff!

I snuck over to the Walk of Fame and was way too exicted to get to meet Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, and Joel Hodgson from Mystery Science Theater 3000. Now the problem is finding a place on my wall for the signed photos and Royal Order of Free and Accepted Mystery Scientists certificate. (Do you know the secret handshake?)

Cooler weather needs to hurry up so I can wear these Stormtrooper leggings from We Love Fine with everything I own. Space print and Stormtroopers is considered a neutral, right?

This little fish ornament from my table neighbor, Tom Taggart, is probably one of my new favorite things. The ornament is cast from resin so it’s really lightweight and hand painted beautifully. The silly little fish face just did me in; silly fish faces are super adorable. Now I have to find a good place around my desk to hang him up.

I hope everyone who went had a great con and thank you again for making this show so successful!

HeroesCon 2014

HeroesCon 2014 is finished and I want to send out a huge thank you for making it such a gigantic success! Over 100 of my stuffs went to new homes and I had an absolutely amazing time talking to new and old friends, checking out other artists, and enjoying the nerdiness. It was a great way to start off my first convention season doing Handmade Stuffs full time and I’m so excited for what the future holds. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to table, made a purchase, or helped spread the word about my stuffs. Thank you also to HeroesCon for putting on another great show; they work super hard and it shows. Also check out my super sweet table neighbor, Shea Standefer. Now I better get to work restocking for Dragon*Con and NC Comicon!
