Baku Plush by WhittyKitty Baku Plush by WhittyKitty
Had lots of fun with this one!

It's a Baku, which is a Japanese mythological creature that is somewhat of a cross between a tiger, elephant, and tapir that eats dreams!

Made of minky and faux fur, a little bit of craft velour, and all markings done by hand with copics. Paw pads done with fabric paint. His mane was done by looping yarn continuously around his neck.

Plush is around 12 inches long.

Please make sure to see it in full view! This plushie is full of surprises and details, it takes a lot of time and dedication to sew so many fabrics in so many different shapes, but the result is amazing! Baku Plush by *WhittyKitty ( Suggested by PlanetPlush and Featured by Talty )

Wow, that is so cool! Have you made more mythical creatures and bakemono? Do you sell these?

thank you! I've not had a chance to make any more mythical creatures though I love them <3 Some of my favs are minotaurs, dragons, kitsune, griffins, and manticores. Got plans for some of those!

And I do take custom commissions on just about anything!

I have never seen or heard of a Baku before but I am glad I did. Your Baku is amazing.
How did you get it to stand, is there wire in it? ^^

That's so cool, I want one! So much wonderful detail! It's so difficult to find a plush of a baku, most of them are statues.

Wow, how incredibly original and adorable at the same time! It also looks exceptionally well made :3 Great job and congrads on the DD! My one suggestion would be to remove the mane or change the color; it sees to contrast a bit too much with the other colors.
