More Miniplush

Those two characters are taken from another fic Twisted Hilarity wrote. You can find it on her website:
And it is yaoi, too. If you want to know why those two are wearing those matching sword tattoos go there and read Ice Winds Bride, giggle.

The one with the black hair is Bey, this one with the white hair is Silva. And I am NOT going to tell you more about them, lol.

Aren't they cute together?
Patterns for the body can be found at Runo Dollmakers homepage:
The clothes are made from felt. Hair is sewn and glued to the head, faces are painted.

Another one of Runo Dollmakers patterns. It is a Miniplush, 12cm tall.

The character is from a yaoi story, written by Twisted Hilarity. This is her website. If you don't like Yaoi (meaning boy boy love) don't go there. You are warned.
Kasan Plushie sitting on Youkiko's lap, lol. Looks as if she adopted him.

Shadows Youji finished

Painting the face it always difficult. Once the paint is on the fabric you can't remove it. It has to be perfect right from the beginning. But I think I did a good job this time.
Another hair experiment.
The hair is glued to the head, cut to the right lenght and perfectly arranged. You want to know why it stays in place like that?
Giggle, rollers and lots of hairspray of course.
Finished Youji, looking casual with his uniform coat hanging over a shoulder.

Playing with hairlength was fun. Wouldn't he look good with long hair, too? The problem this time, you won't believe it, was finding the right color. Come on, it shouldn't be too difficult to find a yarn in honeyblond, should it? Well, it was!
After running around from shop to shop, harrassing shop assistents and looking for it for weeks I finally found the perfect yarn. And those glasses are so cool, aren't they?
Long coat made from a dark blue wool fabric.
The white cross pattern is made from a small white satin ribbon.
And finally the boots. Clothes are finished, now I can concentrate on the head.

Another day another plushie. I used the same pattern as for the Nekomimis but I enlarged the body, the arms and the legs.
The shirt gave me some problems. Luckily I found an old magazine with patterns for doll clothes. I only had to change the collar of that pattern and the cuffs to fit him. But sewing those little cuffs with the sewing machine is not funny!
Can't have Youji without boxers, right?
Lol, that is my cat Banshee, he always insists on checking whatever I am making.
Warm trousers made from a dark grey wool. Oh, did I mention that I am so happy that I bought that doll stand?

No longer cold feet. Those boots will keep his feet warm.
I painted the wingclaws brown and black and then finished them with a clear coat.
Dry and nice I glued them on top of the wings.
This is how he looks complete from head to toe. Did I mention that I bought a dollstand? I am soooo happy that I did. Look how cool he looks standing there with his fighting pole.

I finally made the wings. They were made in the same technik like the golden angel. Put fabric between two layers of soluvlies and stitch the outline and inner structure with the sewing machine.
I used simple sewing yarn this time, a dark brown as in contrast to the shimmering material of the wings. Believe me when I say that I had a hard time to push those wings through the slit in the back of the jacket. And that means, yes, those wings are attached to the body and not sewn to the jacket.
I like the ways those different browns effect each other.
I wanted the wings to look more demonic this time. That is why I made those curves at the underside of the wings.
This time I wanted those wings to have claws. My problem, I am not much of a sculpture. The material I used for those wingclaws is very light, not very sticky, which is why I could form those claws directly on the wings without having to be afraid to soil them. On the other side I wish that material would have been a bit more sticky because it doesn't stick to the wings at all. Oh well, I let it dry for the next day or two. Then they will get some paint and I hope I can glue them in place. Now I have to make those boots and finally the rest of the armor.
