*The following plush also appears on @pikainabag
Monday was Shoonie’s birthday! In commemoration of her 2 decades on this planet, I broke taboo and made…a Pikachu!
Hm? What’s that? This ISN’T a Pikachu?
…oh. It’s a Mimikyu!
This little guy was a bit tricky to get just right. As pictured to the left, it turns out Mimikyu’s black body underneath has the same spiky pattern as the bottom of its costume. I thought that was merely shadow, but after looking at its model in Sun, it turns out that is not the case.
You’ll also notice it doesn’t sit flat, but rather rocks a bit. The weight created by its head and tail leaning to one side doesn’t help either. After doing a bit of research, I may have found a way to keep the base laying flat. Once the shop reopens, I will make and sell a new Mimikyu according to these strategies.
This cutie has been widely received among my classmates. It’s very well behaved too; it quietly listens to music while I work.
Sometimes it joins me for tea.
This Mimikyu is Canadian made. So Canadian, in fact, that it sat and watched hockey with my roommate.
Poor Mimikyu. It just wants to be loved. Maybe it will find a friend in No-Face.
With only 2 weeks left of school, things are getting hectic. While I’m glad to have gotten a chance to sit down and make plushies again, I must also focus on the plethora of assignments that are due in the coming week. Perhaps I will share the completed ones here at the end of the semester!
Which Pokemon should be next? Or should Mimikyu get an alternate costume? Comment below!
Pika, so happy~
