Pokemon, Plushies, and Mathematics
putting my professional high quality resume paper to good use
anyway yeah I’m having both a creative block and creative itch simultaneously so I’m gonna be remaking Slurpuff, with a slight pattern change which will hopefully make him a bit taller. He’ll be up for sale once I’m done with him (ETA: 1μs to ∞ years)

How do you figure out your patterns? Do you have any tips for translating from 2d to 3d? My patterns look ok on paper but when I sew and stuff them, they never turn out right... especially when I try to make things round like balls or head shapes. They always go wonky and lopsided...

plushiluv:

Honestly my patterns are pretty much all trial and error, but through years of practice I eventually developed a good grasp of what works and what doesn’t. While I can’t explain exactly how I make my patterns, I can think of a few things that may be helpful. You problem may actually not be related to patterns at all actually!

(Under a cut cause woa this turned out loooooooong. Talking about testing, seam allowance, fabric, stuffing, clipping and how I make spheres using math)

Good stuff. Personally I never include seam allowance in my patterns since I hate having to guess where to sew. I probably don’t clip my curves enough either…

Slightly stuck on Breloom’s pattern; I think I might be able to solve it with interfacing but I don’t have access to an iron so that might not happen for a while. Rest assured though Breloom will* happen, it is too qt not to make a plush.

I’m gonna be revisiting one of my old plush since a number of people expressed interest in buying it, and I wasn’t fully satisfied with the pattern I made for it anyway. Seems like I’m a bit stuck on pattern-making as of late so who knows, there’s a few plushies I made before which could use some revision.

Helped a friend out who wanted to make a Terriermon. I don’t know anything about Digimon.
Also this Breloom test pattern is confusing me and there’s a 80% chance it won’t work but w/e

STATUS UPDATE: i am currently suffering a severe case of senioritis and “man there are so many video games that I could be playing instead of working on plush”-itis

also definitely trying to work on a Breloom plush but concave shapes are pretty difficult to plush so I’m trying to see if I can get his head worked out

help, all of my friends keep encouraging me to cosplay as Whip, and i’m kind of tempted to even though I could never be as qt as her, and i just looked at some random dress patterns

SOMEONE CONVINCE ME THIS IS A BAD IDEA

epimorphism:

I saw a post on PKMNCollectors about Pokemon who had official Pokedoll art but didn’t actually have a Pokedoll (I think they’re from the Dream World or something), and I’m kind of tempted to make one, especially since a lot have nice simple shapes and I sort of don’t feel motivated to make anything too complicated. Was tempted to make Castform just for giggles, but any comments on which one I should make?

Looks like a lot of people were in support of Kecleon and Seviper, heh. I’m not sure how to make the snakey body shape of Seviper but Kecleon might be a fun project. Snorunt might be fun too. Hm…

wow I think I’m getting used to this organization stuff
only question is how long it’ll stay neat like this
also I’m going back to school tomorrow, but since I’m only taking two classes this quarter, unless graduate analysis totally destroys me I should have plenty of time to work on ploosh. maybe even ploosh that you’ll actually recognize!

Hello people!
I’m a Space Dog
to aim at going over stars

Can you hear me?
I’m a Space Dog
the earth is shining blue…

So yeah, this is Sergei from Pop’n Music, also simply known as Space Dog. Fun fact: the song Space Dog is dedicated to Laska, the first animal to ever orbit the Earth. Speaking of which, if you haven’t listened to Space Dog, you should (and definitely follow along with the lyrics!), because it will change your life. Maybe.

Turned out pretty well IMO, although I overestimated the size of the orb I bought so his nose gets a little squished inside of the helmet. Quite frankly I was glad I could even find such a thing.
