I finished my Vampyroteuthis infernalis plush this weekend which you can see the beginnings of in this post. He is based off the Cute Octopus pattern I shared here, but I have modified him to have the usual 8 tentacles, or arms to be more precise.

He is, of course, a member of the species Vampyroteuthis infernalis an ancient breed of cephalopod that lives in the deep oceans.  You can learn more about these interesting creatures here and here.

I brought him along to a family get-together on Sunday and my cousins thought he was really cute, so I am considering him to be a great success.  I'm going to try and get my act together and make a few octys for my etsy shop in different species and maybe even try a cuttlefish too.  I've been meaning to do this for ages, but it's really going to happen this time!



Species: Vampyroteuthis infernalis
Common Name: the vampire squid (from 'Hell')
Nickname: Toofis

Despite his frightening name and fearsome teeth, Toofis is actually a friendly beast that prefers to munch on gummy bears and cookies rather than human flesh. Though that doesn't stop him from taking an occasional nibble, just to make sure. His big blue eyes help him to spot movement, even in utter darkness. As a result, he takes delight pouncing on unsuspecting victims heads while they sleep to give them a big hug, and then proceeds to gnaw on their ears.

That is the cutest slightly evil thing that I have every seen. He is adorable! And I can just see him eating a cookie. I think you need to take a picture of him with one, just to show his cuddly side off. Cheesy

Isn't he just the cutest. I think I can hear him calling to me. Yep, he is. He said 'I wouldn't mind a place at the end of your bed'.  Wink
