I have been busy working my way through my list of custom orders, here are the latest – this one is on her way to Italy! She was really fun to make, i loved picking out all the fabrics that tone together. Her body is made from super soft brushed jersey fabric like you’d use for baby clothes

I wanted to share some photos Lauren took of her sleepy monster, who she names Moonmallow. I should send all my creatures to her to get photographed she takes beautiful pictures! Check out her pictures here and here. Thanks Lauren!!
She’s around 12″ tall (not including her ears) Her face is an original sculpt by me, which i then hand cast in resin. The face had been airbrushed and painted painstakingly by hand before being sealed with 3 layers of shimmer-matte lacquer all over that sparkles slightly when the light catches it. She has weighted feet and a weighted bottom and free moving teddy bear joints in her shoulders and hips so she can sit and stand unassisted. Her head is sewn on but still has enough movement to allow you to pose her easily.
Her body is made from high quality bobbly turquoise fabric, and she has soft whitel paws. Her head is made from thick luxury two-tone curly fur, with white fluffy ears. She has a puffy curly bears tail too ”
