After all the fun at HeroesCon in Charlotte last weekend we decided to take a little vacation to another convention, JoeCon in New Orleans. I’ve never been to New Orleans, so I’m really excited to get out and explore as well as hit the con! I may also be featured on a podcast while I’m here!
Since I had some G.I. Joe plush needing homes, I figured JoeCon would be a great place to find some fans. If you’re at JoeCon this weekend, look for my info on the room-to-room trading board or just keep an eye out for me and my creations on the exhibit floor. Yo Joe!
So I finally got all theconvention dolls I’d planned on making finished! Two hundred and five if you’re wondering.
I’m not done yet though. I still have some plush to make that’s a different size and style than my standard plush. Here was my first endeavor….
Stay tuned for more updates and hopefully some vidoes!
Guys, I think we have a little bat problem…
I took a little break from comic character plush this weekend to make some little plush bats. (Although I still got all nerdy and named them after Batman characters. I have an illness.)
I made four each of beige, brown and dark grey.Each one has a different cotton fabric for the wings. I have a big stash and I think these little guys are a good way to use up smaller bits. They’re only about 7″ tall (not including ears) so they don’t take much fabric and they’re wee enough to carry around. I actually carried one around in my purse over the weekend.
It may be obvious, but I’ll mention it. I have a thing for bats. I’ve always thought they were cute and super interesting. (This is largely due to the fact that I go educational presents like Zoobooks when I was small.) Like did you know bats are more closely related to monkeys than rodents?
Also, my boyfriend is Batman so I get to see them a lot while chilling in the batcave. He just complains about guano on the Batmobile.
