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 […]

Feathered chocobo plushies

Realistic chocobo plush

UPDATE DEC 2018: I have two feathered chocobos available to buy. Please visit my Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/502731304/feathered-chocobo-plush-final-fantasy-xv Several pictures of my feathered chocobo plushies. I’ve just realised that I didn’t post them on this site so here are some pictures of the last two I’ve made: a standard yellow chocobo and the black chocochick from Final Fantasy XV. Hopefully I’ll be making a few of the yellow chocobo to sell before Christmas but it will depend on how much time I have. They’re mostly fairly simple to make but sewing, wiring and stuffing the legs is fiddly and time consuming.

Fantastic reception for the Official Trico plush

Twitter is full of great pics of the official Trico plush. For those that haven’t seen anything yet, the Trico plush was available at the Playstation Gear store at E3 for $30 each. There are loads of pictures on twitter and apparently it featured on Playstation’s Snapchat. While you can buy a few highly marked up copies on eBay right now, I highly recommend waiting for the plush to come out for general sale in the future. More pics of Trico. He's cute. pic.twitter.com/cS5nnfAM74 — Anto 2.907 (@ajlareneg) June 15, 2017 I'm sending my girlfriend a Trico 🙂 he has a long trip ahead of him 😉 pic.twitter.com/oFYoEbzS7q — Emilio Lopez (@EMannLand) June 13, 2017 I need this #Trico plushie.

Zemzelett plush (FF9)

[Edit 11th Dec 2017 – Zemzelett is up for sale at https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/561580188/zemzelett-plush-final-fantasy-9] Finished another personal project to make a Zemzelett from Final Fantasy 9. If you don’t remember what one is, don’t feel bad. It’s a minor enemy that appears in the owl forest surrounding the Black Mage Village. Zemzelett is a telekinetic owl that just looked so grumpy and cute that I wanted one for myself. Getting some clear reference photos was difficult, so the Rɘverse FF9 model viewer was so helpful to me. It meant that I could load up the 3D model of any FF9 monster and get a good look at some of the detail that would have been completely missed if I was relying on blurry […]

Malboro plush – Kingsglaive Malboro Mascot

Not much to say about this one. A cutsie malboro that appears in advertising in Final Fantasy: Kingsglaive for the brand MBS. I originally planned on making several but after all those tentacles I’m all malboro-ed out. If I get more green fabric in for anything I’ll make some more. The whole thing is minky with some self adhesive felt for the teeth and some special cartoon plastic eyes I found on US Etsy that I paid a bundle for. Cute little guy was totally worth it!
