Although the main prize, points, were sent out to the winners ages ago, I was also going to turn their designs into reality. But then my honours thesis (Australian equivalent of masters thesis) came up, and all those commissions just to make a bit of money...
Anyway! Here he is! He was a lot of fun to make, and I think I'm really improving with the embroidery! His mouth and eyes are embroidered Rest is minky. I totally dig Torotix's design! It beats the shit out of half the new gen 6 pokemon, don't you think? However when made up, his body seemed a little plain, so I added a bit of detail such as the blue swirls on his sides and the swirly tip of his tail
He miraculously holds his own huge head up due to a weighted tail XD
^_^ hehe yeah he was a little tricky, cos of the head! But I'm pleased with the result!
The prize of the contest was mostly the points, and to see your design as a plush (but not to keep it ^.^) I'm gonna hang onto him
