Hello Craftsters! I haven't posted in forever.  Undecided But here's #4 of the Strange-Sea-Creatures-with-Personality-Disorders series! So, it's my boyfriend's 21st bday and he requested a camouflaged manta ray with red eyes. Soo.... here are the pics:

Manni the Awkward Camoflaged Manta Ray - he's got a perpetual look of unsureness.


Top view


"Uhh....."


His belly has gills! My machine did a really horrible job at the satin stitching.  Sad


Handpainted safety eyes. I bought clear ones off Etsy and just painted the backs. I'm so proud.  Grin


Surprise! He's got a pink polka dotted tongue! His mouth-pouch can also be used to hide things.  Cheesy


Here's a size reference. My bf is 6'2". Soo.... Manni's about the size of most life sized manta rays... or bigger.


Here are the previous strange sea creatures with their disorders:
Asky the Fuzzy Blue Squidopus (Colossal Squid)
Downy the Orange Downs-Syndrome Sperm Whale
Nessie the Lime Green Loch Ness Monster

what did you use for the eyes, did you buy those or paint them yourself? they're great!

I bought some clear safety plush eyes from Etsy and just painted the back of them. Thanks!

JBear, I think this is my favorite yet!  Don't quote me though, it's too hard to choose.  Your plushies are wonderful!  The manta ray ROCKS!
