DOMO ARIGATO MR. ROBOTO : )
Here's the plush I mentioned I was working on before Hansel. I started it this week and worked on it just about every night to get it done and out of the way. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I not only was inspired by the retro tin robot toys but also circus punks. I love the box too. i alwyas like to add a little something else to my plush. Whether that's a base or plaque or in this case a box. Yes there is a glare on the robots face. It's because I used clear vinyl to encase his face. I was thinking the whole space man helmet look. The box window also has the vinyl. It was pretty easy to sew in to place. I was afraid it would slide but it didn't.
I've been trying to come up with a simple shape that I could do quickly and still embelish it like crazy like I love to do. I was thinking something like this I could do rather quickly and maybe sell on etsy. Of course when I get time. haha!
This is getting mailed off to a magazine publisher for possible publication. It's just for submission, but who knows what may come of it.
