A Couple of Geeky Plushes to Show Off  
Hello fellow plush enthusiasts! I... really need to remember to post here more often. But for the moment, I'd like to introduce you to a couple of charity-related poseable crocheted chocobos.

As a quick bit of background information: this is my third year contributing crafts to Desert Bus for Hope (which begins... tomorrow, so I'm almost late *cough*). Since I can't really afford to donate as much money as I'd like, I donate my time and energy in the form of geekcraft to be auctioned off during the event.

(Chocobos are also mounts [horse birds!] from the Final Fantasy video games. In case anyone was not aware. I swear it makes some kind of sense. Maybe. These aren't based on any "real" chocobos in particular.)

Miss Diana
This lovely lady is all suited up and ready to drive! She also happens to have a beaded sash that doubles as either a choker or a bracelet, because... uh, because. You can find many more pictures and much more information at her gallery page here.

And then there's the cyberbo! Becase... well, cybernetic enhancements, right? A bit of a departure from my usual, but I think that's exactly what was needed. And, she's shiny, so. Again, many more pictures and lots of information over at her gallery page.

Thanks so much for looking! I hope anyone else in the world enjoys these as much as I do.

Those are impressive!

Thank you! My hands would only call them "complicated". Heh.

These look so amazing, I love them. And Desert Bus is about five minutes from now so I'm a little bit excited... ;)

Ahem, yes. I am running between the kitchen and the computer to make lunch and catch the opening at the same time right now.

"Tally's craft posse," I like it! I hadn't expected to see Desert Bus stuff on here, so I was surprised to spot something familiar. I'm always excited to find other people who know about DB and LRR!

I'm pretty sure "craft posse" was a term used in last year's Desert Bus rap. I'd go find it if I weren't buried in work but still responding to things. Priorities!

Ah geez you have awesome things. EVERYONE has awesome things. How did I get here. (This is not my beautiful house...)

Well I guess I'll have to go look it up at some point then. Last year was a while ago. :P

And thank you! But I'm pretty sure you got here because you also make awesome things - those chocobos look really high-quality to me! (I love how many amazing things there are in the craft-along every year. Some day I may even win one...)

And now trying to catch up on life after Desert Bus...

Also THANK YOU. Didn't get a chance to tell you that I saw your things and they just added to yet more awesome. I was so happy to see all the handmade stuff drawing such a crowd, too!

Thanks! It's amazing watching Desert Bus grow over the years, I remember when they first started the craft-along, and $300 for a handmade craft was a lot. And now look at it... (Too bad I didn't have the budget for it back then, I'd have had a much better chance at winning an auction! :P)

These are so bizarre. I fucking love it! :D
Orin Drake: CASSIESTATIONwickedorin on November 15th, 2014 12:23 am (UTC)
Heh, I don't think I've gotten quite that reaction before! Thank you!

These are awesome! I donated a plush Tauren Lion to Desert Bus a few years back, they're awesome folks. :D

I love all the detailing on these guys, nice work!

Finally attempting to go back to life after Desert Bus here...

I had to go back and check that I was remembering correctly; yay, I was! An absolutely amazing plush. I... will never get the hang of faux fur, I don't think. That or I'll have to get used to it getting everywhere, but. Very awesome other plushes you have, as well!
