No You Can't Read My Moogle Face~



Somebody is finally ready for Anime North, and its this guy!  I was going to say "little" but he's actually fairly substantial, basically life size to the design of the FFXII/Ivalice Moogles that I based it on.

I've loved the design of the Ivalice moogles for years and finally finished making one for myself.  This is entirely patterned and hand crafted by me over many, many months.  It has pellets in its feet and butt for weight, armature in all the limbs as well as the wings for posing, embroidered mouth, paw pads and footprints, needle sculpting on the face, joints in all the limbs and neck, and aluminum sheet in the ears so they don't have the bulk of the wire but still pose in all sorts of moods, and a pompom made out of Styrofoam and a red boa.  I still need to sit down and tally exactly how many felt mock-ups I made for the various parts to make sure my moogle would look right.  Just the face and body I know had over 15 pattern variations sewn up, not counting early scrapped trial pieces.

And yes it is just as cute and fluffy as it looks!  Come say hi if you see us at AN2016 this weekend. :3
