13 inch Calista Plush by dot-DOLL 13 inch Calista Plush by dot-DOLL
Calista for :iconcalistamonkey:

She's made of minky, faux fur and a modified wig XD She's 13" ish inches tall and weighs quite a bit with all those polypellets in her for extra floppitude. her eyes are hand embroidered. I tried a new little trick which helped keep them symetrical and uniform, which I'll make a mini follow-up tut for.
She's entirely hand sewn so the markings would line up, and so I could control the shape more. She has defined rear legs with ankles and hocks (if canines even have hocks) which I suspect my machine would have mangled somewhat.
She is a floppy pattern and can lie down, playbow etc.

Calista belongs to the very patient :iconcalistamonkey:
Plush made by me.

More pics, WIPs and tosh on my tumblr!

Many welcomes :-) Yes, Clusty is a fun, fluffy, colorful character! I like the hair you chose to work with.

Eeeeeeeee! XD As I've said via email and messages and everything - I absolutely adore this to bits XD  Sorry for the delay in getting back to you!  LAPTOP IS FIXED, HURRAH!

But yes, this is stunningly made.  The attention to detail and all the hard work that's gone into this really shows!  A brilliant likeness of my character and you've really brought her to life!  The wig hair works really well, and I'm glad she gave you an opportunity to experiment with a new technique idea XD  The markings are spot on, and there's a great selection of super fluffy and soft materials to make her very cuddly! The stuffing is just right to make her poseable whilst not reducing her cuddlyness! Especially loving the details on the eyes.  Just everything about this is awesome.  She's sitting on my shoulder as I type this, heheh XD  It's always been a desire of mine to have Calisty made into a big cuddly plush, and I'm glad I managed to stumble across your page when I did!  Thanks for all your hard work and for all the communication and updates and for bringing Calisty to life <3  Wishing you all the best with your further plushie endeavours and I hope you continue to get loads of business! :D

Wow, sorry for the late reply, but thank you! Thanks you so much for that amazing feedback on etsy too! That is always very much appreciated <3

OC's are a deep, meaningful thing. Not everyone would pay to have a custom plush made, so those that do must really love thier characters. They need to be the best they can be! It's not like you can buy one in the shops or anything.
I am glad she is just the right cuddliness for you! I get a lot of people asking for huuuuge plushes, but that sort of size always seems to hit the spot! The weighted feet help, too, it feels more substantial than if she weighed of nothing.

Anyway, I hope you continue to enjoy her! I bet your shoulder is quite hot, though...

*SQUEE!* Wow it looks great. Love all the colors and the different hair textures :D

Thank you! I'd been meaning to try longer hair for a while, but this one left me with no choice! Thankfully, she's working that slightly glam-rock look.
