Calcifer by rotten-apples Calcifer by rotten-apples
Um...my third plushie. Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle. I made him for a friend's birthday. I think he turned out pretty well. His distressed face makes me smile ^.-

...spray on adhesive is evil...*stares helplessly at her sticky fingers that have attracted all races of lint*

Calcifer belongs to Diana Wynne Jones, while this portayal of him belongs to Hayao Miyazaki.

Ha ha, neat. Add this to the list of weird plushies I would love to have (along with the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal).

Calcifer is the sex, pardon my phrasing, and this embodies his personality really well.

SHE LIKES MY SPARK!

I basically just drew out a pattern for the orange outside part and the yellow middle, sewed the two orange parts together, then flipped it inside out and stuffed it.

I glued the yellow piece on with spray on adhesive [sticky and evil but effective]. Then I added two round pieces of fabric and painted the accents on.

Aww he's lovely! I want to hug him!!! You did a fantastic job, yours looks better than the official Sun Arrow calcifer plushies, IMO, which were rather expensive. My mate is making me a plush of Cal as he was described in the novel.

You're very welcome. =)

It's very hard work to sew a plushie, and you did a very good job. =)

Hey yeah, that's a nice touch! I thought there was something about the background I liked.

It would be cool if you did one of the wizard monsters :D

I also wanted to do the cows Howl always has on his bed...The wizard monsters would be a nice challenge, though ^.^ Thankyou for the suggestion.
