You may have seen Gaston Gustave's breakthrough moves and jaw-dropping jumps at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics!
He came into the competition as the underdog, because he was the shortest and furriest of all the contenders. But the crowd was dazzled by his movements, and enthralled by his Ziggy Stardust-like apparel! And he came out in the end with a gold medal.
Unfortunately, this is going to be his last year at the Olympics, because his wife just gave birth to a litter of 10 monster pups.


Gaston Gustave is about 11 inches tall
11 inches from arm-to-arm.
Lots of hand-embroidered details!


I made him for the Schmancy plush olympic challenge, the deadline was today (Just made it!) We were given categories from the winter olympic games & had to make a plush out of our category, mine obviously was figure skating!



& a zoom in of his outfit, my favorite part is his fringe on his arms :B

Hee hee hee, oh he's adorable! His little outfit reminds me of the ones worn in that Will Ferrell ice skating movie. Smiley (And those eyes are too cool!)

Hahah, thanks! That was sort of my inspiration + ziggy stardust + browsing through real figure skater costumes from the past.
