And now, encouragement!
Just when I thought I'm too old for plushies I see that octopus for sale and couldn't resist.
His name is Hector and he's now the self-proclaimed lord of the couch. He happily separates the unwelcome from the welcome guests.
Also, he silently judges me by the movies I watch and the things I draw. (Screen shows my fav episode "Terror Cotta" from the TV show "Kung Fu Panda - Legends of Awesomeness".)
I'm a total octopus NERD you guys. For example these strange creatures have no skeleton, nine brains (one main brain, and one brain for each tentacle), and the mothers sacrifice their lives for their children. What is there not to love.
It's really hard to find a realistic-ish octopus plushie so this made me happy. Except its mouth and siphon (which I call "octopus ears" in my head even though I know it's where they breathe) are missing, and its eyes are not octopus eyes, but this is still the best plushie I could find so far!
I'd still die for a big (dog-sized maybe) realistic octopus or giant squid plushie, so if you guys would get me one I'd definitelly draw you something equally big in return. <3
