OMG. I just got this email:

Hi Suzannah,

My name's Dave Alexander and I'm the Editor-in-Chief of Rue Morgue magazine. I shared the link to your amazing plush Sharktopus with the director of Sharktopus, Declan O'Brien, and he was wondering how he could score one. Do you have any for sale?

Cheers.

-Dave


The director of Sharktopus wants one of my plush sharktopus'!!!  *squees*

My friend is a fan of bad science fiction movies. He asked me to create a cute plush version of a monster from a recent SyFy movie, Sharktopus as a present for his gf.  So here he is!

They're actually small felt circles, however, now thinking about it, buttons would have worked nicely too!  Cheesy

Ahh!!!  That is awesome.  I recently saw sharktopus at a bad sci-fi movie viewing party and it was hilariously awesome.  Kudos!

Fantastic.  I want one, despite never having even heard of the film before, just for the sheer absurdity of a sharktopus.

I had never heard of a Sharktopus before but now I really want one. It's so bizarre but so perfectly executed! Great job!

It's so cool that the Director wants one too! Neat!

I recently enjoyed the movie Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus so I think I need to check-out this Sharktopus flick. The previews look too good to pass up Smiley.
