I am bleeding out into a puddle of envy here. This is SO COOL! I hope you realize that you knocked the design and construction of this one right out of the park. ^__^

Good god, this is remarkable! I wouldn't have believed that you could achieve such a stylish silhouette with so much bulky material. You have really achieved something here!

I, uh, think you misunderstood your son's friend. He wanted to give it to ME, not his girlfriend! xD Great job, he's just brimming with personality. I really like how you did his spines, too, it's a great mix between cartoony and realistic.

Waah! This is fantastic. It's so well made, too, I can't believe you casted that skull!

And hm - if you made a whole army of them, that probably means you wouldn't notice if I snuck over and stole one, right? =]

I DO recognize the reference for these guys, and they are GENIUS! I'm going to have to send this to my mom, she's a huge Rilakkuma fan. Grin

Oh my god, I am having such jacket envy. And I made my own dream-jacket! Yet still, the envy! Seriously, this coat design is one of the most gorgeous I've ever seen, and you executed it flawlessly.

Yaay! Another Teto lover!  Wink  Oh my gosh, that was the first thing I had to try - finding the best position for perching him on my shoulder. I'll have to upload a picture. I must say, he also sits admirably on my head. Or on other people's, when they're least expecting it and I sneak up behind them.

Thank you so much! =D I'm glad you guys like him!
10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Teto the squirrel-fox! (Any Miyazaki fans out there?) on: August 14, 2013 07:15:55 PM
As soon as I'd finished my Nausica cosplay, I realized I had a golden opportunity: the perfect excuse to have a Teto of my very own! For those of you not familiar with the manga, Teto is a fox squirrel - a notoriously untamable creature, but one who develops a strong friendship with the heroine. (Some reference pics: http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130417170846/studioghibli/images/7/76/Nausicaa_and_Teto.jpg and http://media.animevice.com/uploads/0/3695/406348-6264_large.jpg)

Bottom line: I love Teto. If I were a genetic engineer, a fox squirrel would be my top priority. But I'm a crafter, so I turned to needle felting in order to bring him to life. (And THANK YOU, fiber arts community of Craftster - you're the ones who introduced me to needle felting and made me realize it would be the ideal medium!) This is my first attempt at the craft, and I'm totally hooked on it now.

Okay, enough rambling. Here are some pics!












If anyone is interested in the process I used, I can post some progress pictures as well. He's got a soldered armature, making him very poseable. Also, rather than completely felting his outside layer of fur, I chose to felt it on in wefts, like one does for a long-haired critter; I thought it gave him a more lifelike appearance and texture. Oh, and speaking of texture - his white fur is alpaca, making him oh-so-very-cuddleable!! I can't stop petting him!

I just can't believe how cool needle felting is! I'm so grateful to you Craftster geniuses for opening my eyes to this awesome medium.
