Marshadow plush I Pokemon

Marshadow! :iconmarshadowplz:
Finally complete after 68.3 hours! That’s even longer than the lifesize Kabuto plush took, haha. Check out my Instagram-story highlights @pinku.art for a “making of”- album. :)

The legs are floppy, and there is glitter thread on the blushing cheeks. The tiny eyebrows and “leg shadows” are poseable.


Oh my, this pattern. It took more than 35 hours to complete it!

Especially the helmet included...a few revisions.

This guy has made it in my top three of “most underestimated working time ever”. xD But, seeing it sitting there with a body shape that looks good is so rewarding. :)


For those of you who know a bit about sewing:

I’m pretty sure Marshadow now holds my record of most darts in one plush. 58 of them! It felt like there were a million though. xD (Darts are basically small corners you sew individually to create a rounder shape.)

I'm going to upload a video of this plush to YouTube with time. In the meantime, you can see a short one of its floppy legs on my Instagram post. :)

Measurements:

Height: 33cm / ~13 inches tall (from bottom to tip of the helmet) in sitting position, ~49cm / 19 inches length from the tip of the spread out "leg shadows" to the tip of the helmet

Width measured in front: ~19cm / 7.4 inches

Width measured on the side of the head: ~12cm / 4.7 inches


I’m taking custom plush orders again on 8th of april! Have a look at the commission information linked below if you’d like me to sew something for you. :)

Newprices by PinkuArt

I am going to let you have a glimpse of the plushmaking- and small business owner-life! I hope that I have explained everything well enough. :)

Sewing plushies is something I have been doing for a long time, and also as a full-time job for about a year now. Even after all this time, I  still have to improve and learn new things in all areas! Today’s journal is about my experiences with prices for custom plush orders.

There are new prices for plush commissions from now on!

I had used the previous prices for many plushies, and noticed time and time again that they did not match up with the time and effort I put into most of them.

The main reason for this is the time it takes to complete a plush pattern. No matter whether the final plush is going to be 20cm or 50cm tall, the pattern still takes the same amount of effort.

Especially after I had finished the Marshadow plush, it was clear that something needed to be changed. Marshadows’ pattern alone took around 36 hours to make! And at that point, the actual plush was not even started yet.

Now if you look at it from a financial perspective, which I have to do in order to make a living and to be able to continue making plushies full-time:


If I was paid in US minimum wage (7.25 USD per hour according to google), 36 hours would already amount to 261 dollars. And this is not where it ends, the plush took a total of 68.32 hours to complete!

The artworks I create are unique and nobody else can make them exactly like I do, since every artist has their own style. Work like this is definitely not worth minimum wage or less. On top of that: I do not live in the US! The average living cost in Sweden and also buying materials for plushmaking are much higher. And on top of the top: This specific plush took about half a month to make, meaning I can make a maximum of two plushies like this each month. With the old prices, that would not even cover rent and food expenses.


Taking all of this into account, I arrived at the conclusion that I have to raise the prices in order to be able to make ends meet.

The prices for plushies I already have a pattern for remain the same. I am going to work on adding more “Your character here” commission options after the april orders are complete!

Also, I have added the new price category “advanced” to differentiate better between complexity levels. Any price quotes for new plushies you have received before this update are not valid for the next round of commissions.  You can find the new prices and everything worth knowing about how custom plush orders work here: www.pinkuart.com/plush-commiss… :heart:

In all honesty, the new prices are still not completely adequate. I will keep them for now as a test to see how close they can be to compensating for the effort that is in each plush, and might make changes again once I know better.


No matter which plush I am making, I always aim to put the maximum effort into making it turn out exactly the way the new owner imagined it to be - and that has to be reflected in the prices to make it possible. Thank you for understanding!  :heart:

Baby Zapdos plush + Team Instinct scarf I Pokemon
Baby Zapdos rocking its cute Team Instinct scarf! :iconzapdosplz:
The accessory was requested by the commissioner, and it suits the little one so well. 💛 I had tons of fun making this plush come to life! Its wings are poseable.

Can I just say that I am also really, really happy with how the photoshoot turned out? ;w; All the leaves are arranged by hand! I’ve developed quite the passion for photography recently, haha. Too bad plushies take weeks to make! But that makes the final pictures even more special.


Mesaurements including wings, etc.:

Height: ~27cm / 10.63 inches
Length: ~31cm / 12.2 inches
Tail length: ~8cm / 3.1 inches
Width: ~16cm / 6.3 inches

Dragonair shoulder plush I Pokemon
Dragonair! Oh my. This plush. So beautiful. ;w; And the best part: it can sit on your shoulders! :icondragonairplz:
Please check out the video of the plush! It shows it much better than any picture can. :heart: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np3eE0…

This was so much fun to make! The total time I spent on it was 40.7 hours. 💙 There is wire on the inside to keep it stable, the tail tip and ears are poseable. It's over a meter long!! :faint:
I finished this plush just before christmas, so the christmas tree is in the background of the first picture. :lol:

You can see pictures of the "making of"-process in my Instagram story highlights. <3
This Dragonair already has a very kind trainer in Germany, but I adore this plush so much that I am going to sew one for myself in the future as well. 😍 Along with a Dragonair trainer cosplay! 💙💙

Tail length excluding head: 104cm / 40.9 inches
Body length including head: 116cm / 45.6 inches
