UPDATE: The watermark is there so that people on ebay/etsy/elsewhere can't steal the picture and "sell" it when they don't have the plush. It's to protect both me and any possible buyer of those scammers.







AND HE IS FREAKING DONE!!!! 8D Here is the Sha of Happiness from World of Warcraft and his buddy Soo-holu in kitty plush form. >w<

He was commissioned by a certain deviant and you can find more pictures of Sha on his own deviantart account in the future here: :iconshappiness:


His video showcasing how he looks and features is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WIU-U…


It took me ages and the whole of this month, but I finished him. ;w;
This guy is why I've been MIA for the last few weeks. >.<

I had my ghost in there with him as a size comparison. THIS GUY IS HUGE!
He's currently with his new owner and said owner is happy~ >w<

He is definitely the biggest thing I've made so far and the most intricate.

He didn't fit in my lightbox either, so I had to take a pic of him upstairs. ~w@ Ignore the clutter please~


Also, that fluffy bit at the bottom? It's pieces of yarn looped through each stitch in the 9 rows. There's about 300 of them or more and I looped them all by hand and then used a wool carder to brush it to fluffiness. It took me over a day to do that.

The horns on his head, his arms, fingers, legs, and back all have wire in them so that they could be altered and stabilized. X3

I also glued felt to him so those bits that don't look crocheted are felt. XD

I used a few pictures as reference as well as the 3D model of him from World of Warcraft.




AND NO, THERE IS NO PATTERN. I CREATED IT ON THE FLY AS I WAS MAKING HIM.



I hope you guys enjoy~ ;w; I almost died making him.


~Altearithe


The Sha is around 12inches tall or 1/3 of a meter tall.

Soo-holu is around 2-3 inches tall.

This is so amazing. I wish you had a pattern... maybe I'll try making a Sha-Ling for myself in the future since this is so inspiring!
