So I'm gonna be a female Alucard for a con, and wanted a plushie to carry around with me. After HOURS of hand sewing, I'm just like, "eh". It's too good to redo, but still kinda stupid looking. Who else has been through this?

Ohmigod, plushie making. -Shudders.-

I have yet to make a plushie that -doesn't- look stupid, so I know exactly how you feel. </3.

I wish I could find a generic plushie pattern; then I could just customize it to make the plushie look like the character.

I'm making a plushie at the moment.

I should have been done long ago, but the details are what kill me! He lost one of his shoes, so I have to make him a whole new pair to be sure they match, and that jacket has me chewing holes in things out of frustration!

Right now I've put im to the side, but I should really finish him... he's giving me that funny little smile...

I tore poor Alucard apart(I swore I heard him cry) and started a new one, but didn't have to completely redo him. He's still a little ugly looking, but, not nearly as bad. My next project shall be a no-face(Spirited Away) Pillow. It'd be cute...maybe a little creepy.

Wow, that's sad to hear. Got any pictures to show us? Also, No-Face pillow sounds like pure win-- this I gotta see.

Oh god, the plushies I made for Tavi and Rikki... XD The first plushies I made them were of a beebo (little wing-eared bunny looking thing from Shutterbox) as well as a cross between Gir (Invader Zim) and a beebo. These were the results:

Another one I did for them the following year was of a puffycat virus (Reality Check!) which turned out much better:

Ya know what? He's not completely done, but I need support. I'm gonna take a pic tonight. Don't laugh at either of us or he'll become sad. DO YOU WANT TO MAKE ALUCARD SAD?! Heh.



Btw, Lezzy-cat, you and I are now ENEMIES. Your plushies beat Alucard to such an extreme level, my self-esteem has DIED.

And so here he is....Note. He has no feet, the hat is not done, and his face is not completely done. I might redo the face for a third time.

Popping in to the conversation:

I luff all the pics! And I know how you feel.
Me and my friend are making a business of selling Sushi, rice ball etc. plushies. Sadly we havnt made many yet, and the only compleate one was a gift for a friend, but Im making some right now, so Ill post a pic. later.

Anyways in relation to the topic, the first one I made looked, well, not like a rice ball at all. But the other turend out very kawaii.
~2010! -Sigh- Indeed I do need to get working.

While I'm not amazing like all of you, plushie making and all....I do smaller props so I feel your pain.

I was making legwarmers for a costume of mine and I was paying attention on where my hand was and where the fast moving needle was......

I was picking thread out of my fingers for a good 3 days and had to make a whole new set of legwarmers because the other pair were covered in blood

So I understand the woes of props that go wrong.

ohh... this last year I had to make Nero from Devil May Cry's arm... and i couldn't figure it out at all so i'm sitting at the hotel on thursday night making one out of fabric and it looked like crap and then while i'm walking around with it on my arm I figure out exactly what I could have done to make it look right... I was punching myself in the face for that one.
