Meet the SuperHAREos!

As promised, here are the photos of my Superhero rabbits, the Super HAREos. They will be for sale at the Schmancy Toys booth at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this weekend. I have never done any comic book fan art before, and I wanted to do a little twist on the theme; so I decided since Easter was coming up to make these superheroes as rabbits instead of regular humans. These are some of my favorite superheroes. I have fond memories of the Superfriends cartoons that I watched as a kid.

Since my favorite color is green, I've always had a soft spot for the Green Lantern:

It would be pretty amazing to be able to run as fast as the Flash does:

and to be able to kick some serious criminal butt (as well as be super-rich ;D) like Batman:

 To be able to fly and jump buildings in a single bound like Superman does:

Now we're getting to my favorite characters. I love Hawkman, and had a ton of fun making him:

My all-time favorite Superhero, of which I had the Underoos and a set of the cuffs, tiara, and lasso when I was a kid; is the Amazon herself, Wonder Woman:

These were a ton of fun to make, and I hope that if you are in the Seattle area that you have the chance to check them out in person this weekend at the Con. :D

Plush Team Swap- It's Otter Time!

The Plush Team annual Swap is one of the best perks of being a member of the Team. This year I got the most adorable Sea Otter from the amazing Marcy of Moons Creations. He also came with his own set of sushi, which just happens to be one of my favorite foods. The yearly Team swap is doubly exciting since it's a secret swap- no one knows what great new creation from a fellow member will show up on their doorstep!

LOVE that fuzzy muzzle of his! To see more of Marcy's awesomely cute creations, check out her etsy shop.

For my part of the swap, I created and sent Matilda Bear off to the UK to the fabulous Dawn of Treacher Creatures:

Dawn makes fantastic plush out of the coziest socks, so if you haven't been over to her etsy shop to see what she's up to lately, here's your chance.

So excited to say that I now have my very own Kooky plush! (Thanks Ken and Jen- you guys rock!) He's absolutely adorable. If you don't know who Kooky is, he is the hero of the the movie of the same title. It's a Czech puppet/live action film, and it is one of the most magical and creative films that I have seen in a long time. It's about a young boy whose mother makes him throw away his Kooky plush because she is worried that Kooky's stuffing will aggravate the boy's serious asthma condition.  Kooky then has to find his way back to his owner, who still loves him.

If you haven't seen this film, I highly recommend it! The character designs are amazing, and the film is pure magic.

If you are wondering where to get your own copy of the movie, or your own Kooky, the film's director Jan Sverak has plush and the movie (in PAL format), as well as the new making-of book (text in Czech) available to purchase on ebay. To find out more about the film, here's the link to the Kooky facebook fanpage.

I am busily creating new plush and haven't had time to post any photos, but I promise to reveal what I am working on soon! Until then, I will keep updating my blog with all the new additions to my plush collection.
