Plushie Buzz by Zareidy Plushie Buzz by Zareidy
This little guy is 12 inches tall, made of minky, and has hand sewn and embroidered details. The pattern was a bit different form what I am used to, but the bottom heavy look really appeals to me and I am happy about how grounded he is. He is based off of the unconverted artwork for Plushie Buzz, which are the absolute cutest and my ultimate dream Neopet. I plan on submitting this to the Neopets art gallery on Buzz day but that is so far away. For now he will just hang out here. Plushie has always been one of my favorite paint brushes, it is just so folksy and floppy, not to mention adorable visible decorative stitching. I wish there were more neopet plush out there, hopefully I will make some more in the future.

I have a plushie buzz named Schinter! He is an absolute gem and I was wondering if you could do a custom of one of these and sell it to me? Phenomenal work btw :)

He sure is cute!
I have a question, how did you get his head attached to his body? I'm new to plush making and have been using ladder stitches to affix heads to bodies and it just looks... Kinda bad.
Any help would be much appreciated!

It was hand stitched on with something similar to a ladder stitch. I don't really know the names of these things, I usually just do the stitching I always do which is an in out sort of thing. Sorry if that isn't very helpful.

Aw thanks! I used to collect them, sadly I don't think they made a plushie Buzz.

I only had a couple of them myself, a white aisha, strawberry jubjub, and pink quiggle, but yours really is much cuter.
Doesn't help that as a plushie neopet collector I'm a little biased, plus the UC pose really stole my heart.
Again, wonderful job :3

Ahh! I almost didn't believe the thumbnail - this really is a plush Plushie Neopet! xD I nearly forgot how much I liked Neopets, but I really gotta go back sometime and figure out how to make plushies of my favorites.

I agree, the bottom-heavy look is really great here. The colors are really cheery and work well together. And the big decorative stitches are just... yessss.

Phenomenal work, it turned out so great - that decorative stitch work really pops. Anyone who has ever played Neopets would recognise this guy instantly. :D

I hope so! I added a line to the mouth as well so that was clearer. The bottom jaw smile is a bit hard to read sometimes.

Exactly. I'm constantly thinking up new things I want to make. My to-do list (more like wishful thinking list) is pages and pages long >-<

Will do :D

It's one of my goals a SOME POINT to try making my own Neopets plushies of my pets since I never fell in love with any of the official ones (except for the xweetoks!). THIS IS AMAZING. It looks 100% professional, better than the ones Neopets officially had made, and oh my gosh, SO SOFT!! What th eheck do you use!?!

You should! They haven't made much merchandise anyway. Thank you so much! It is made of smooth minky.

It felt like they used to... I'd go to the stores and peruse what they had, but it was never the same as any pets I owned, and even what they had was regularly... I don't know, strange looking? They just didn't capture the mood of the character art from the site. Yours really appear to grab it by the reins and bring that mood and world together perfectly. ;o; PMed you about possibly commissioning, but honestly I have no money right now, so it's likely to be pricing for hopeful purchase down the line. :D
