Please full view! Thank you! :heart:

Check out Zelda too!


He’s finally finished! After 10 or so days of work, I am proud to say he’s completed!
My very own Dark Lord Ganondorf plushie from Twilight Princess.

I’ve seen a few people make this version and wanted to have a go at it myself.
This is the most elaborate plush project I’ve ever attempted!
I’d have never imagined he’d turn out so big though! He’s around 25 inches (60cm tall)

I don’t even know what sparked the desire to make one, really, though I’m very glad I did!

Wow, I used so many materials to make this one. (Including 4 small bottles of fabric paint!!) Here’s the lowdown on a few of the things I used and made:

-100% cotton body with poly fibre filling and fleece feet with foam insoles
-Fleece hair, sewn as 6 separate cone shapes, and hot glued to his head
-Brown velvet underclothes (top and trousers)
-Navy blue felt armour, with fabric paint edging
-Pleather belt with rhinestone and fabric paint detailing
-Suede material on front of armour with Gerudo pattern
-Various rhinestones and diamantes for decoration
-Red velvet cloak (detachable via velcro) with fabric paint and gold detailing
-White fleece and felt “execution” sword (detachable via velcro)
-Various Copic marker detailing with some permanent marker in silver on the armour
-Real earrings with Sculpey diamond shaped drops
-Various red ribbon threaded to his armour and crotch area, and threaded to his feet also.
-Foam, felt and beaded head dress with rhinestones and fabric paint

He will be attending events around the UK with me, as my mascot “Ganny” at London Expo in May and possibly other ones too.

-EDIT- He now has a voice! He has a sound box under his tunic with his menacing Ocarina of Time laugh!

-EDIT 2-
Featured in the Official Nintendo Magazine UK,
Issue 68, April 2011 :D

Comments very much welcome! Thanks for
looking!

lol, everybody does. i was setting up tables for a video shoot in the childrens section of a local library while in my ganondorf cosplay, and little kids came up to me wanting me to chase them. didn't know who i was suposed to be, just saw big and green, and wanted me to chase them. the parents and librarians got a kick out of it too. i even got stoped for pics in the middle of the street when i walked down to a cafe to get soome lunch.

This is one of the most excellent handmade dolls I've ever seen. The effort, intricacy and life breathed into it make it a real sight to see. You have a genuine talent, in my opinion, and deserve all the recognition you get. :)

This is awesome! How did you make his face? There's so much shape to it, but I only see a couple seam lines. It looks incredible!

The face consists of a seam in the middle and a 3-dimensional nose. The rest of the shading is done by acrylic paints :D

Thanks for the compliments!

Awesome! I thought it might have been paint, but it just looked so convincing! :D

Hehe thank you! It was difficult to get it to mix the exact same colour. I think it probably came out better on the photographs than IRL ^^;
