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 SpaceVoyager and Featured by Talty )

I love the general shape, as well as all of the soft curves and color changes. The markings were done well, too. The amount of work you put into the details really shows, great job!

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.
