Meant to put this up sooner.
Tiny Tarkus! Still needs his sword and shield.
This is amazing. I actually found this as I was trying to convince my wife to make a Tarkus plush for me. I just googled it to see if anyone had created one before. I was just thinking of the original goal of stuffed plush figures (obviously teddy bears are standard) was to make a child (or adult) feel safe and secure if they’re scared… and what could make you feel more secure than Tarkus watching over you?
Aww, thank you! -The idea of a cuddly Tarkus plush sounds awesome! I’d love to see photos if your wife does make it. -I’m kinda tempted to make one too now. o 3o
Working on prototype #2. With less seams around the face. Still need to figure out how to make the antenna for these smaller versions.
Prototype for a larger Kururin commission. Plan on making a batch of these smaller ones to sell as keychains.
ask-flux-chord said: Hey, sorry if I'm asking an obvious and prolly frequently asked question, but how much do your small plushes cost? I was thinkin' of commishing a miniplush of some Dark Souls character. Sword and Shield (if owned) included.
Unfortunately at this very moment I’m not open for commissions but I hope to be very very soon. In a couple weeks time but I cant keep my word on that.
When I do open for commissions again, starting price is 25 dollars but this is just something of “commisssion fee”, I guess, not sure what else to call it. That will only cover material costs such as fabrics and packaging. And thats for any size plush, including the smaller 4 inch soft figures that I’ve done a lot for Dark Souls. -Depending on the complexity of the character the price goes up from there, factoring in how much time goes into construction and lastly on top of that is always the cost of shipping. Which I know is sounding like a lot of money.
For a lot of my Dark Souls dolls, I dont have a pattern I use to quickly pump out a doll. I have a pattern for the base but then everything else is cut and sewn around the doll making each one uniquely one of a kind. And I put a lot of time into all my plush, especially when I know its going to fan who loves the character so much.
Ideally, when I do start commissions again, I want to charge 10 dollars for each day I work on a plush and this would go on top of that 25 dollar commission fee. And to be clear, the amount of plush work I do in one day is 4-5 hours. So asking for 10 dollars for 5 hours of work is absurd for me because I’m being cruelly underpaid. This is a labor of love for me though which is how I can bare to work for so little. So if the price of my commissions is too much for anyone, please understand I’m trying to keep the price as low as I can without cheating myself.
When I do open again for commissions, I’ll be releasing more information about costs and such. -At that time if you have a character in mind, you can always message me for an estimate on how much it’d be. I’ve actually already have a small line of people waiting for me to reopen.
Thank you for your question though! If you have any more, please dont hesitate to ask.
Its been a while since I’ve made any kind of plush doll. Sorry to those who left me asks about more Dark Souls dolls. Dark Souls was something I immensely enjoyed with my ex and since our separation I’ve had to distance myself from a lot of things I loved.
Fear not! Its always been my plan to make lovely dolls of all the ladies from Dark Souls, so if this new process I’m experimenting with works out I think I’ll be using it to make a series of Dark Souls dolls, over fandoms and some of my own original ones.
Above are concepts I’ve sketched out for my proto-type and first doll. I’ve named her Miss Mourning. Her arms posed like that because eventually she’ll be cradling the skulls my two pet rats.
Sorry if I’m being morbid.
Anyway! Just wanted to say I’m still alive!
More Rave Lords up for sale soon
Working a slight redesign of my Grave Lord Nito. Hoping to make a small batch to sell for the holidays. Five at most.

I’m sorry to say that I wont be making any more Dark Souls plush/soft figures for a long long while to come. And if I do it will be of the lovely ladies like Priscilla and Quelaag.

alexdraw said: Hey I just found your blog and I am super impressed! I saw you're not taking commisions or custom orders but I would LOVE a Solaire. Is there a chance you'd make more and if so how much would it cost? Thanks
I dont plan on taking any commissions for a long while. At least a few more months. And Solaire is at the bottom of my list now on plush I want to make to sell in my etsy store. Sorry. If I was, he’d be minimum 50-60 dollars.
I am considering putting together small kits with pattern pieces, material and instructions on how to make your own. Those would be sold for about 20 dollars but its also something that I wouldnt get to for couple more months at the very least. That would also depend on how many would be interested in purchasing a kit.
