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. :)

Here’s a sneak peek at the faux fur tail clutch pouches I’ll have for sale at Califur 2014!

They’re big enough for a phone, hotel key, cash, Purel, or new just pens and art supplies. They have a generous wrist strap so they can be worn with a costume, and between a 6-7” zippered opening. 
The wrist strap can even be used to tie them to your belt buckles for an emergency mini tail!

These will be for sale at the con in the artists alley, and any unsold clutches will be for sale on my etsy afterward. Thanks for looking!
