Meet my octopus!

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 27, 2013, 1:19 PM


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

:highfive: Octopuses are like real life science-fiction animals when you look at it.

I, too, can never resist anatomically-correct cephalopod plushies. A couple of years ago I acquired a giant squid with a beak and a distinct mantle.

And then I bought a plushie version.

I LOVE "Otto and Victoria"!! Haha if I didn't already buy that book, maybe I would have joined the contest. xD

Send me a link when you have your plushie finished and uploaded, very curious to see! :)

:D i joined the contest even though i already have the book!

Just because i wanted to draw them. But you know, i always
need a "kick-in-the-ass"-Deadline :D before starting something.

My deadline for the Otto and Victoria cosplay is March 2014.
For the LBM. (Leipzig Book Fair)

<3 Ok I will. xD just need to get started first.
I'm on vacation the next two weeks, maybe i find the time to start.
