Movie sets, costumes, and life in California

 

Start to finish! About 22 hrs of work put into this cuddly ferocious beast.

I had a head start because I used the basic body shape from my rat plush (https://www.flickr.com/photos/dragonsquared/11543083005/) and modified it.

I usually always do a trial before cutting into good fabric, and used some leftover muslin to test.

This color scheme is inspired in part by the Ice Candy variant (http://www.vinylpulse.com/2013/08/konatsu-x-q-pop-hyoka-ice-candy-edition-negora.html), but in purple because I had a lot of extra yardage!

The spines on her back took the longest to put together, but they’re very tactile and fun to touch!

Qpop shop here in LA is hosting a gallery show that will be full of Konatsu Negora, I can’t wait to see them all in person!

This is a fan doll, not for sale. I don’t sell copyright characters. Thanks for looking! :)

Exploring more shapes for my catfish pattern. Coho Salmon - Havana Brown Catfish! 

Also pictured, the first version of my pattern, a fan tailed goldfish calico catfish.

Still working on proportions, not sure I like how the chest/shoulder area comes together yet. Custom patterns always take a few versions to get perfect so don’t get discouraged, keep revising your paper pattern and try again!

I always leave the faces for last because they take the longest, and I really get hung up on expressions and proportions!

I love the imagery of Mercats/catfish!

I’ll have these unique Tail Clutches for sale at Califur! There have been many times when I’ve wanted to be ‘furry’ but didn’t feel like being blatant with ears/tail, so I designed these little handbags to fill that niche. :)
