Chihiro+ Kohahu= Chihaku
Spirited Away is an amazing movie. And the romance between Chihiro and Haku... ahhhh, it gets me all fuzzy inside.
So this is one of the new patterns I've been working on! I'm really pleased with the head pattern (it's as round as my lycra plush).
Btw, these guys' skin is made with deersuede; it's fuzzy and sturdy...so the plushies aren't as squishy, but they're soft.
They're about 11~12 inches high. Deersuede is a little annoying to paint, but I decided to handpaint the eyes because I wanted to give them that extra special touch.
Kohaku's hair has a blue-tinge because I couldn't find green, and it's the best I could get. Maybe one day when I get my dyeing fabric stuff going, I'll be able to get any colour I want~~
OFF-TOPIC: For your entertainment, while searching for ref photos, I found the best fanart ever...It's currently my desktop wallpaper, and I'm just staring at it when I'm not working and I love it to bits: [link]
That site is like a Japanese DA. I haven't quite figured out how to navigate around it too well since my nihongo skills are slim to none, but try to check out that artist's other work. It's really beautiful and inspiring.
