Piece #3 for iam8bit Plush Week 3. A new addition to the Sprite family. I should probably come up with a name better than the filename, which says it’s a Flibble. (You may remember this as the name of Rimmer’s penguin puppet in Red Dwarf; you could also assume it’s “flying Tribble”). People kept asking what I was making and I had to say I have no idea what this angel unicorn gerbil critter is. It just IS. (Angicornbil is right out, btw.) *EDIT* I have named her Ériu; the other sprites are Persian/Assyrian kings so Celtic mythology seems appropriate for the new series!

Faux fur, velour, spandex, Minky, wire, sequins, glass beads, Swarovski crystals, and handpainted eyes; about 6" tall

HanniHolidays Drabble: Day 4 | Prompt: Snowball

Will was out in the yard when Hannibal pulled into the drive. He stepped from his Bentley in his long coat, shining dark in the midst of so much white.

“You’re early.”

“I thought I could help with dinner.”

“Don’t trust me, huh?”

“I trust you very much.”

Hannibal turned toward the house. Will smiled darkly. He knelt, gathering snow tightly in his gloved hands. He let the snowball fly and it burst in a cloud of white against Hannibal’s back.

Hannibal turned, cocking his head. He scowled, then smirked, kneeling down and reaching into the snow. “You’ll be sorry.”

Bats! In my belfry. Because nothing says “holiday season” like bats goshdarnit. Cold nights in front of the fire with a mug of cocoa, snuggled up in your reindeer sweater with your bat by your side…I just like bats okay

Err, anyway, a group of Baby Batty Bats has flown into the Etsy shop for the first time! These dudes are ½ the size of the regular Batty Bats (see 2nd pic). Plus, the 15% Black Friday weekend discount applies through Tuesday - code BLACKFRI15. Five colors available; I may be able to do a custom color for you before Christmas, just ask.

Bright Red // Hot Pink // Deep Purple // Lilac Purple // Black

Just realized I’ve now made weird but relelvant “food with faces” plush for 3 live action shows I’m into. Psych: pineapple (technically it’s a puppet); Doctor Who: fish fingers and custard; Sherlock: IOU apple. That’s more shows than I would’ve thought I could do.

Either I need an intervention or I need to do a Supernatural one now. Or…Arrested Development.

“you don’t have to be able to see where you’re going to find your way”

Fluffy Chicken: the state national official bird of tumblr. Symbol of determination, teamwork, and following your dreams. And just really wanting something for no good reason. Also, one of my con exclusives for C2E2 at the end of the month (booth 961). Made from two types of silky faux fur, with a wool felt beak and safety eyes (they’re under there), and feet complete with a fur “sock” just like the real ones. Measures 10" tall and can be posed sitting or standing (with light back support).

Isn’t it majestic
