At long last! He’s finally FINALLY complete! ^o^ I’ve been waiting for this moment for an eternity (partially because I had to take a 2 month hiatus from sewing due to real life commitments :P)
I’m so proud to showcase the plushified version of my latest OC Fantasia (aka Lucid Tone)! Some of you might recall him as the winner of my plushie contest in June where contestants had to design an OC pony for me. He was designed by the incredibly talented & much respected Lanmana (thank you Lan!)
I must’ve started working on him back in August? I had him all sewn up ready and for airbrushing when, as usual, real life reared its annoying head and I was forced to take a plushing/sewing hiatus. That hiatus was later slightly prolonged by bioware gaming/ addiction ^^” (good times! XD).
Ahem, aaaanyway… so one of the things I fell head over heels in love with was how simple, yet complex, his design was. His hair appeared largely a dusty blue at first glance, but on closer look, they scatter with the iridescence of a rainbow. And in line with rainbows, he emanates the theme of illusion – a unique talent which his passionate singing brings. It all fits together so subtlely yet perfectly.
I had to scratch my head hard on how to re-create that effect on a minky plush. I’d initially wondered about incorporating sheen organza; but after tossing a few ideas here and there, I settled on using my good ol’ friend – my iwata airbrush. We have a love/hate relationship, me and my airbrush x3
Just so you know, I used dusty blue minky for his entire hair and tail, so everything else you see was airbrushed on. It took many many airbrushing sessions (a large chunk of it was spent on air drying and cleaning >.<), but I’m actually really pleased with the end result (yes, I’ve intentionally exaggerated the subtle shades in his hair I couldn’t resist! I guess it’s just the moggymawee’s take on his design/everything)
His dreammaker was made with minky, beads and embroidery floss (mounted on a safety pin), and his black scarf (so stylish!) is completely removable .
Details: *Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics, minky baby fabric *Minky colours: dusty blue, snow white, french blue, mocha, caramel, black, mint *Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, quilt batting, armature wire, craft foam and poly pellets in hooves *Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, madeira polyneon embroidery thread *Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered *Size: Approx 21″ tall, 24″ long *He has my signature embroidered into the bottom of his front left hoof *Others: Beads & DMC cotton embroidery floss & safety pin for his dreammaker
Hope you guys like him! And that he was worth the wait! ^^
I don’t have any immediate plans for personal projects currently (maybe Dusk?), and I still have 1 commission spot left, so if anyone’s interest in commissioning me please fill in an application form here:
I made a better one that’s more accurate. This one is not for sale either and the previous already has a buyer. I am considering putting the pattern up for sale if anyone is interested so they can make their own. It’s a pretty simple thing to assemble!
I’m going to make the little red hoodie for this one. I’m happy how the face came out bc the face on the previous one looks a little too angry.
