Tapu Koko Zip-up plush
I finally did it! I finally finished the set! After Tapu Fini done in Leamington Spa, England, Tapu Lele in Santa Cruz, California, and Tapu Bulu from Porto, Portugal, I finally set up my sewing machine in Kitchener, Canada and made the 4th and final member of the collection!

I really couldn't be happier with how this came together. It's absolutely beautiful, and probably one of the best in the set! That said, the entire set is in my opinion the best of my whole plush collection. He was really fun to make, and I had quite a blast with the whole process, which you can see in the YouTube video I made of his creation.

Hydreigon plush
This one was a lot of fun to put together, and I think she looks absolutely adorable with the tiny heads!

I actually made this partially to experiment with recording videos of my plush-making. I actually recorded my entire process of creating this plush, and I'll be uploading a condensed video of that to my Youtube channel very shortly

Anyway, This was a relatively fun one to do. I got experimental in a few parts, and a lot of them paid off. I find it kinda cute how it's like one of those lying down plushes, and I guess it's the kind of Pokemon that has that kind of body shape, even if the games don'e make it look like that.

She measures about 16 inches / 42cm in length, but is also relatively slim.

Landorus plush
I'd been promising myself I'd get to this one for ages! Even though I don't actually play competitive Pokemon anymore, I really do find a lot of charm in Landorus as a Pokemon, and I've always wanted to make it look adorable. This was my attempt at a chibi kitty version of Landorus, and I think it came out quite nicely.

The funny thing is that I'm really not used to doing quadrupedal plushes yet. I've only actually done one before, and I really wasn't too happy with how the hind legs came out. I've touched up on that pattern sine, and I'm a lot more satisfied with the design this time around!

One thing that was pretty fun and complex was the tail. It's a very odd shape, with a lot of minor details, and is meant to naturally stand up. Weirdly enough, I actually didn't use any wiring on the plush at all, and the tail was actually made to naturally curve upwards on its own. It was made entirely by hand, and stuffed pretty well so that it can stand up.

His standing height is around 8 inches (20cm) tall and his head-to-tail length is also the same length. This actually makes him one of my smaller plushes.

Porygon2 plush
This one was a quickie before I left Portugal. I had some leftover stuffing and material, and I've been really anxious to get enough stuff ready for my convention table this weekend. I put together this Porygon2 in about half a day, and I think it's pretty cute!

So I've had an absolutely amazing summer this year, and at one point, I'd kinda gone into overdrive with my plush production. I think that I've made a lot of progress and improvement since I first started, and I still have a lot of stuff in mind, but I'm going to be taking a break from making new designs for a few months. I'm also going to be closing commissions from September until December, so if you want anything from me, right now will be the last opportunity until I'm back.

Right now, my life is all over the place, and I've got a lot of stuff to figure out. I moved out to the USA earlier this year, and I've still got a lot to do regarding that. However, I'm flying over to England in mid-September for a few months, and I'm not going to be taking my sewing machine, my materials/equipment, my plushes, or really anything except for a small backpack containing my laptop and a few essentials. Even if I wanted to, I won't be capable of making any plushes while I'm out there.

To be fair though, I'm a little glad for the break. My overdrive for worlds has resulted in a lot of good work that I'm pretty proud of, but my plush designing is not the only work that I do, and I'll appreciate having the time to work on my other projects; most notably my digital and sprite art for the video game I've had on the backburner for over a year now. Perhaps I'll post sprite sheets or character art on here as an interesting change of pace from the plush work that I have in my gallery, but I also feel like the project is best shown as a full package, so I'd rather start showing stuff about it once I have presentable demos.

Anyway, That'll be it from me until December! You may see one more plush before I leave, but otherwise, thanks for reading! ^^
