Toothless by MagnaStorm Toothless by MagnaStorm
I AM NOT REMAKING THIS PLUSH ANYMORE AND I DO NOT SHARE MY PATTERNS SORRY.

I also have a video of him here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP1Lhb… Though for some reason the youtube upload is muuuuch darker than the original video...? Wonder how that happened. :/

So yeah, huuuuge image compilation for this little guy because there's so much to see about him and what he can do!

I've been wanting to re-make a Toothless at a much more manageable size than my first one made 2 years ago ( horrible pictures warning: fav.me/d2rrl52 ), so I was super happy when I was commissioned this little guy! He measures 24 inches from noes to the tip of his tail, 10 inches nose to butt, and has a massive wingspan of 34 inches. He was a plush that wanted to turn out a certain size and wouldn't allow me to do anything about it, had to re-make his body 3 times before getting it right. xP

He's made out of minky, and has machine embroidered eyes. His nose is thread sculpted, and he does have a hand embroidered mouth. He's pose-able thanks to decorative sand in his paws. His wings are also wired, though they're too heavy to stay up in the air on their own. The tail piece is also removable, and is attached by snaps, as shown in the video above.

Hi, I understand that making these takes a lot of time (and talent) and so you might not want to sell the toy. But how come you can't sell the pattern? I'd definitely buy it. I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one.

It would be very unfair to my clients if the pattern for their plush became available to the public

Why? I'm not trying to be aggressive, but to me, that just seems selfish and I want to know why I'm seeing so many people who aren't selling the toys, saying that they won't share their patterns.

Are they really concerned with having the only copy? You had no problem selling multiple copies of the toothless toy after all, so there are more than one.

It's just, if I had the skill to create a pattern as great as this, but I didn't want to keep making the toy, I'd share it so others can enjoy it. As I said, I don't expect you to make more yourself as it's clearly time/energy consuming and very costly, but why not allow those who really want the opportunity to have this, attempt to make it themselves?

I mean, if you were going to continue to sell the toy yourself, I would understand. But I've seen so many people with great toys saying 'I don't sell and I don't share my patterns' and that just seems... well I already said it. I mean, obviously I wouldn't ask you just give it away for free - not when you've put so much energy into it. THAT wouldn't be fair. But I reckon selling it would be reasonable.

I dunno. Maybe I just don't understand.

Plush artists's patterns are basically the core of their work. We work for years and years getting better at drafting them so most of us like to keep our work, well, ours. There are some who share their patterns and that's fine, but it's also fine that some don't and it all comes down to personal decisions. My decision was to not share the patterns for plushies that people have payed me hundreds of dollars to render into a plush.

I'm also not sure I can take being called selfish when I've made my work as available as I humanly could by taking commissions nonstop for 5 years when instead I could have just continued making plushies for myself and no one else :/

It's unfortunate that many have missed the chance to own one of these plushies, and I know it sucks that I do not plan on releasing the patterns, but that won't change my decision. As a BJD collector I'm painfully aware of how hurtful it is when something's discontinued or I've missed a limited edition, but please be respectful of the artists's decision. We've all thought our decisions through and if they ever change, it won't be because of outside influences.

Hi,

As I said, I wasn't trying to be aggressive, I just wanted to understand why, which you've now explained. I've just seen a lot of people who don't sell the patterns, even when people offer to pay ridiculous amounts of money, and also won't commission at all (which is more understandable).

I dunno. I'm a writer, and I know it's a very different medium, but for me the whole point is about getting it out there.

But as you say, it's your craft, you spend years honing it. From that perspective I can understand as I do the same - just with words. I guess it's just the differences in the way we produce things that threw me.

I still think it's odd - but that probably comes from being told that as a writer, the minute our work is put out there (or sold) then it no longer belongs to us as the author, but rather to the readers.

I'm not sure if you can understand where I'm coming from - but please don't think I was trying to start an argument.
