Giant Lugia Plush by Sareii Giant Lugia Plush by Sareii
EDIT 7/3/14 He has been sold and is shipping out to his new home in a matter of days!

-------

Edit: Wow I woke up to 1k+ messages, and found out this got a DD? That's really cool, I don't think I'll get to replying to everyone ;-;

----



I love the flattery but please don't ask lol.

It. Is done.

This beast is a whopping 5 ft from tail to nose, each wing just over 2.5 ft, and is actually quite heavy. It's super stuffed (more stuffing than I normally use (proportionally)) so it actually makes a very comfortable pillow. Beans are in the feet and in the tip of the tail for weight.

This was the fastest plush I did because it's so large scaled. All the tiny details of those other plushes I did are on a bigger scale, so it was a easier. Still, I devoted quite a bit of time to this.

I will openly admit it didn't come out as planned. My plan was for it to be balanced enough to sit up, but the pattern apparently had several flaws, it is now very front heavy. However, I don't really care about that. It lays quite comfortably on my bed and I'm leaning against it now typing this. I may redo the feet/legs, because those patterns apparently were WAY messed up, I miscalculated something in there. The thing about patterns is that you can't see the final result until, well, they're done lol.

While I'm slightly dissappointed, I also know that you can't buy a plush like this. This thing gives the best hugs! :heart: Something about making your own plush makes things even better.

He now claims his bed-spot with my night fury, my articuno, and a few other of my favorite plushes. Too bad for them, he takes up a LOT of space xD

Fantastic plushy and really on-model! Though I do think his neck was made a bit too long. Other than that, this is gorgeous :)

Hiya, I literally fell in loveeee with your amazing plush work. I am not a plush making genuis however, Im a whiz when it comes to making things. After searching for hours for a giant lugia plush, I gave up hope in ever buying one. So instead after seeing your wonderful creation I thought I would try to make my own one and of course I am determined to have a giant lugia!! 

Only thing is i wouldn't know where to start? with the face? the body? the wings? or do you make the individually and them put them together?

You definitely make them individually. The head was done on its own, I finished both wings, then the body, the tail, and put all of those together. I usually make the legs/feet last of any plush and add those at the end.

Sareii Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Student Filmographer
hmm, lemme copy this from a comment I answered on another page:

"Alright so fresh from the beginning! My biggest tip to starting off is look around at existing plushes online, both patterns and the plushes they make, just to get and idea of how 2D goes into 3D. Also, look at plushes you might find in the store, look where the seams are and such.

Materials are really up to you, your budget, and what your plush subject is. I don't have much to offer on specific materials for specific textures, as I buy according to budget, color availability, and what it feels like when I'm looking at it. My lugia and night fury are both made from the same kind of fleece, but their characters have very different textures if they were real. If you try working with minky or eyelash minky (very soft fur-like material, I used for espeon and umbreon), note that they're more expensive, higher quality, but make a huge mess!

Always have your pattern ready before cutting the fabric. I've been lucky (but stupid) in the fact I don't usually do much pattern testing with my plushes, but that's not the smartest. I recommend buying some really cheap broadcloth cotton, which can go for as little as 1 buck a yard in some places, make a scaled down size of your pattern, and test it with the cotton to see if it works. Sew and stuff, note any mistakes, fix it, and when you've finalized the pattern, scale it back up and work with the final fabric.

Also, look at some tutorials online if you need specific things such as ball shapes, sewing techniques, etc. There's a lot to offer!

And if you ever start making anything or have any ideas and need help, feel ree to ask!"
