I found out about this comm from a quick google search just now. I'm so excited to find somewhere (besides DA and Tumblr) to post my customs and see other people's! :D I guess I'll just show most of the plush I've made (that are pokemon, of course)! The comm seems a little dead, but maybe it'll come back to life xP

It's been a while, and I've made quite a few plush. I keep forgetting to post them here. Since there are a ton, I'll just put them under a cut.

Plush are hereCollapse )

Still open for Loonakit commissions. :) And as always if you want to see my stuff when it's finished, and not when (if) I remember to post it to communities, you should watch my journal.

A 1:1 Oshawott even. :)

More pics hereCollapse )

Yup, the shell comes off and can stick to his hand and everything. I'm fairly pleased with it, though it's not perfect. They never are!

Full size pics under the cutCollapse )

Wow! First off, I wanted to say what a great idea this community is! I can't wait to see what you all end up making~

I wanted to post a picture of my latest accomplishment, a 1:1 joltik! This one is shiny at request of the commissioner, and I have one on trade currently in addition to... Well, my buddy was pimping me out before I knew  he even saw the thing, and I apparently have 3 very eager people on my tail!

Let me know if I need to resize this.

I just finished three pokemon plush in the last week or so. Lots of photos, so I'll put them under a cut.

Hi there. It's a small community yet, but I thought I'd post, say hello, share some stuff, and see if I can start a discussion. :)

So hello!

Here's my stuff: http://www.sparkcostumes.com/photos/thumbnails.php?album=8

I also have a furaffinity account, though all my pokemon get put into scraps after I post them: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/bladespark/

I put them into scraps because I don't (usually) take commissions for pokemon plush. So having them tucked away saves a bit of trouble, as I don't constantly get people asking to commission pokemon plushes. But lately I've opened up a few slots for them, and I've been considering the pros and cons of taking pokemon plush commissions.

I enjoy making them, and they pay well. I'd get a lot of business, I know. That's the pros side.

The cons side... well, it boils down to the fact that technically it's illegal. The licensing rights to make pokemon plush belong to companies like Jakks and Banpresto, not to me. I'm stealing designs I don't actually own. Obviously, of course, there's a huge difference between an artist coming up with original patterns based off of copyrighted characters, and selling them one at a time, and a bootlegger stealing them pattern and all and churning out thousands of crappy knock-offs. Nobody's going to sue me for making pokemon plush, I know, unless I venture into that mass-produced rip-off territory. All the same it's still technically breaking the law, and I feel weird about doing it, which is why I've tried to mostly limit myself to trading them, rather than selling them.

But all the same, it would be nice to have a steady stream of pokemon income, you know? So I thought I'd ask around and see what other pokemon plush makers do. Do you make a lot of pokemon? Is it a significant income source, or just a hobby/way to pay for your hobby? Do you trade much? Do you make original characters too? Which do you do more of? What do you think about copyright law and how pokemon plush relate to it? And of course the most important, significant, and vital question of all, do you like my plushes? :D
