|Have you ever thought of giving away any of your Homestuck plushies? Or making a request for a winner in a giveaway? Just wondering because they are really adorable especially, Mituna and Gamzee. Nice work on them :3|
Ah yes, I’ve had one planned for a whie, but my life has also been too chaotic (as in for the past year I’ve been in and out of the hospital with two sick family members) to actually have time to do it UmU I’d love to do it sometime but it’s sadly a last-priority thing considering all I have to do.
well, a little 3 am side project sewing after commission work nets a Terezi head sitting on my desk.
Still trying to figure out a good plush design for Psii so I can complete my gemini set =_= when I find time to make him at least.
I also got my new computer finally 9been without for a few months), so I’ll have access to animation software, sai, all that good stuff again…. hoooorrrraaaah!
my inbox is kind of exploding so i’ll answer it as I can;;
Homestuck plush MASTER POOOOOSTTTT!
Well, so far :D (more in progress)
figured it was time for another roundup of my completed hamstuck plushes.
their individual posts/photosets are here:
|Hello~ I adore your plushies and I am interested in sewing up my own. But I must know if yarn would be a good substitute for fur for the hair? Would you recommend it?|
Hey! Thank you so much :D I try to answer most non-anons privately, but this is a good question so I hope you don’t mind the public answer.
Yarn is a great tool for hair. You can also use top roving wool or also, dyed (or undyed) mohair is great as well.
Yarn can be used either raw or you can brush it out to separate the strands. It has a really cool texture when you do so. All you would really have to do after that is weft it (or you could plug it if you want the hair to stick out really wild, like a muppet!) and sew it down! I’ve been meaning to do a doll with yarn hair but I haven’t yet had a good one to do that for.
|Your John is cute and well made but did he have to be another white kid? I know that's the popular headcanon John but seriously all of the colors available to you you chose white?|
Urk… I admit I’m a little stumped about how to reply. I’m sorry if you were at all offended, but the John I made isn’t caucasian. He is literally “full force wavelength reflection” white. Any hint of color on his skin is from lighting and photo touch ups (except for the blush).
I really like the stylistic look of the comic so I went with the “blank” white skin of the canon human kids.
Do the windy thing, boy!
Like all the others, he’s hand made from scratch and all patterns are mine. Every piece of clothing/accessory he has was made by me from raw material. Patterns/etc. are my own, fully posable plush doll. Stands about 6 inches tall! :D
I had way too much fun with his photoshoot. I FINALLY MADE ONE OF THE KIDS (okay, so I made him a couple of months ago, but look, photos!)
His shoes are super simple compared to the others i’ve made, but I really like them.
W… OOOOOOOOOO BOY FINALLY. I took pictures of him! I was dreading photographing him because he’s such a high contrast design and I knew he would be super difficult to photograph and light, but I finally did it.
I was originally intending to make an actual quote-set for him, but the printer is out of ink… so hopefully photoshop quotes will suffice!
Kankri is one of my absolute favorite personal fan-art dolls I’ve made and I wish it hadn’t taken me this long to photograph him, but between being busy and not wanting to mess with him… it took a while! Just like all of the others, he’s fully posable and everything you see was hand-made by me from scratch. All patterns are mine, all that good stuff.
About 7 inches tall. (and yes, his shoes work :D )
