Amaro plush – Final Fantasy XIV

This Amaro sat unfinished for a while but I’m very glad to have finally got it complete. The original idea was for a mink plush – maybe proportionally something like the official Monster Hunter Rathalos plush – but once I started out everything took a completely different turn and I’ve ended up with this fluffy little guy. This plush uses up the last of my grey faux fur that made up Trico’s body from a good while back. I’ve got a very big wooden chest far too full of fur and fabric so actually finishing off a piece is a big achievement. There’s also some trims in longer white tipped grey fur and then minky for the horns and feet […]

It’s a very simple plush to make but please comment if something in unclear and I’ll do my best to improve the instructions.

Red XIII plush (Version 2)

large red xiii plush

Had another go at the Red XIII plush. This time he has an entirely new body, new mane and wired legs and tail. The body shape is perfect now, I’m so happy with how it’s turned out. Was also able to get some better lighting for the photos. Red XIII has already sold unfortunately, he went really quickly, but there are plenty of other Final Fantasy plushes still available for sale: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/OwlTeaPartyPlushies

FFIX Ozma Plush

Ozma FF9 plush

I’ve wanted to try Spoonflower to print fabric for ages but couldn’t come up with anything that I thought would look good. A lot of the time hand stitching the detail or changing fabric creates a much better result that printing onto the fabric does. But after completing the Baldesion Arsenal in FFXIV and getting the mount, I realised a squishy Ozma is a prime candidate for printing given the bright colours and intricate patterns. The textures ripped from the original FF9 disk were so low res they were useless and I thought I’d need to recreate them completely from scratch. Looking into the remastered version of FFIX on steam, the textures were just either AI up-scaled or heavily filtered […]

Giza rabbit plush

Giza rabbit/happy bunny/whatever you want to call it. I’ve always wanted to make a plushie of one and after they popped up in Eureka Pagos (FFXIV) I’ve been inspired again to make one. It’s bit and it’s damn fluffy. Most parts are standard minky/faux fur. The ears are special: two layers of sticky felt with aluminium wire down the core. Watercolours for the pink gradient. Black Copic for the detail.

Wind up Ixion plush

This is my dumpy little version of the Final Fantasy XIV Wind-up Ixion minion. I’ve nicknamed him the potato/popoto pony. He’s up for sale on Etsy. Ixion is made from minky fabric and faux fur for the most part. The horn was air-dry clay with a wire down the centre that extends right into the body so it’s nice and secure. It does make him very top heavy though, so the body has been weighed down with plastic pallets in the legs and then stuffed as usual with polyester stuffing. The eyes are some spare plastic safety eyes that I hadn’t used that were painted with acrylic and then sealed with polyurethane varnish. The acrylic paint will easily scratch off the […]

Fenrir Pup plushie – Final Fantasy XIV

My first Final Fantasy XIV minion plush! Fenrir pup is so soft since it’s made almost entirely out of faux fur. The fur was new at the supplier I tend to get my teddy bear furs and fabrics from and was just perfect for this little guy. Unfortunately the faux fur is now no longer sold so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to make another 🙁 Fenrir pup has a short pile blue and purple faux furs for the body and a 60mm long pile white faux fur for the mane, tail and trim. The chest is the same faux fur as the longer stuff. It was such good quality I could cut it short and it was sill really […]

Alte Roite plush

I haven’t finished anything since I started playing Final Fantasy XIV (there may be a connection there). There are a couple of minions that take my fancy but actually the first Final Fantasy XIV plush I’ve made is Alte Roite, the angry hate noodle from Omega Deltascape V1. If you’re like several members of my Free Company, it will also be the only Omega Savage raid that you can complete. Alte is made from minky and trims of faux fur. Wire runs through the body and wings allowing some posing. I didn’t go for an open mouth as it’s really difficult to get it right, so sticky out tongue it is. It’s ended up more cute than terrifying but it […]
