Xivilai Plush by Boarfeathers Xivilai Plush by Boarfeathers
I'm so happy with how this guy turned out, he took forever @,@ (probably about a week). I love Xivilai, they're my favorite daedra :heart:, there's totally not enough art of them floating around :XD:.
He's completely hand sewn with hand painted features (acrylic fabric paint mix). His horns, neck piece, and...er....crotch..protection? O.o...I don't really know what that thing is....are all made out of super sculpy. The necklace and...other..thing...are both painted with awesome metallic paint. His body is fleece (nice and snuggly) and his hair and skirt thingy are felt.
Since I have nearly no plushy making experience I referenced a couple of tutorials (which I modded to fit my own needs):
:iconmarlingrey:'s midna plushy tutorial [link]
:iconnitanita:'s plush head tutorial [link]
:iconpheleon:'s plush hair tutorial [link]

HE'S SO CUTE! :iconimhappyplz: His arms are kind of sticking out of his chest, instead of his shoulders ^^; His hair is really well done though!

I WANT IT.

Uhm, critique; the arms are a little unevenly set, and I would've chosen a greyer colour. Wish I had thought of this! Fun idea :3

I agree with you on the color XD this blue made him look like a na'vi >.>.....but unfortunately I have 0 spending monies and had to use fleece I already had left over from my cosplay hats :XD:
His arms are a little uneven, the picture does make it look even more so ^^; but alas...that's what happens during your real first plushy making time
Thanks for the critique :D
