Arcanine 3.0 was the first plush produced for my Etsy store. Although not readily visible in the picture above, several pattern changes were made to facilitate construction and make the plush more anatomically accurate. Compared to Arcanine 2.0, this plush toy has wider legs, brand new cheek designs, longer rear stripes, a thicker tail, larger "fluffs" of fur on the hind legs, and smaller, sturdier ears which are double reinforced with interfacing and wonder under adhesive.Construction time took much longer than I first anticipated, but I'm very pleased with this final product. The 3-D version meets 90% of my craftsmanship expectations.
Once things settle down a bit more at home, I would like to learn how to make paws and create a non-chibi design. However, this may be well into the future. My current projects are all large cosplays for ACen, so any plush making I was hoping to accomplish over the Christmas season has been cut short by costume designing, my job schedule, and an obsessive addiction to Pokemon Y version. (One of my BFF's has a normal-type friend safari, so my free time is consumed with breeding my Gen 6 wonder team.) Want to trade friend codes? Just ask.
Finally, commissions and "The Ramen Cartel" Etsy store will likely be closed until after ACen (May 2014).
