This Dashie was supposed to be made as a cuddle size but with the newly updated pattern (which got a bit improved and enlargened) it ended up in the lifesize scale anyways, ohwell! It is now used as the new lifesize pattern instead!The cuddle pattern is now back to its 95cm while looking the same as this one in terms of design
Dashie was a comission and is not for sale. She was made out of shannon minky fabric, a super soft fur-piled fabric with a velvet feel to it. Lightly to medium stuffed. Satin stitched eyes with a mix of embroidery, bridal satin white background, anf 3D felt eyelashes.
She was made to have a smug expression , glancing sideways. Her eyes was especiallt fun to make, see this pre-mane picture of her below which shows her expression better:

i know shes not for sale, but if you don't mind How much did she cost?(both what she sold for and what the matreil costs were,I'm new to making plushies and trying to see what others charge to make such wonderful things I know most do, Mareil costs + their time,but how dos one determind cost of time?) Sorry for long question,I love your work they look so life like!
I've got to say it was a great experience buying from ERC. I got lots of updates and really, really fast email replies and the shipping was fast too. It was a long time from the first email to getting the package in the mail, but I knew that going in and was happy to wait through some of the busy convention season when I knew ERC and Company were off plying their trade at Brony Con and so on. Anyone out there who is considering something like this, I'd say do it if you think you can. The worst thing that can happen is you ask the artist/crafter and they say they can't take any more work right now. I fell in love with the ERC plushies the first time I ever saw one and wanted to commission one for years and it feels great to have such an amazing piece of work. It's also pretty cool to see pictures on some of the info pages and be able to say, "Hey I recognize that! That's my giant Dashie!"
I see people asking why here eyes look so sexual. That wasn't what I was going for. I sent a drawing a really like of Rainbow Dash waking up from sleep and cracking one eye open and asked for eyes kind of like that, but looking off towards the left. These did turn out a little bit more "bedroom eyes" than I was really aiming for, but overall I thought everything looked good. *Side note* It's really funny when someone e-mails you 10 or so work in progress photos of themself hold Rainbow Dash's severed head in their hand XD
