Hanako Custom Blythe

Hanako1

“This unique custom doll has been made from parts of various Blythe dolls, namely an SS scalp, VM face plates and eye mechanism and an EBL body. She comes to you from a non-smoking, pet-free home, customised at length, and now she is ready for new adventures. I named her Hanako, which in Japanese means flower (Hana) and child (ko).“

The newest custom Blythe Doll (named Hanako) from Pure Blythe artist Emma is currently available through eBay (the UK version).  I think the highlight of this custom is the artwork thta is located on the doll's eyelids.

Get In The Ring With Kaiju Big Battel’s 1st Toy

Skydevilertoymed

After remaining mum for months, the Kaiju Commissioner and Kaiju Big Battel are proud to finally announce the release of Kaiju's first monster toy, an eye-catching Sky Deviler vinyl, produced in collaboration with Marmit, Japan's leading manufacturer of vinyl monster toys.

The Sky Deviler vinyl will be released at the San Diego Comic Con.  There are only 100 pieces in stock and will run $50 each.  Whatever is left over from the con will be sold online at the Kaiju web-mall.  But I'm gonna doubt any will be coming home from San Diego.

Plastic and Plush Has The Scoop: pupStar mimobot

S2_pup_hiresweb

Ahh...yes!  It's our turn to announce the newest mimobot character in mimoco's Core Series 2 Scavenger Hunt.  And how fitting is it that Plastic and Plush gets to announce the canine inspired mimobot?  (I've got 5 dogs)  PupStar is designed by Dino Alberto and will be limited to a run of 2,000 pieces.

pupStar is starry-eyed and a dreamer.  He was always meant for big things.  When in the throes of performance pupStar can fly when his bright eyes are energized, which is how he escaped the Celestial Circus aboard the Cosmic Coliseum to follow his dreams.  His hobbies include bowling for silicon biscuits, hiding out in closets, and flying through the night sky.

Now, the series won't be released until after the Scavenger Hunt is over (on July 25th)...but we'll be giving away three pupStar mimobots in the upcoming weeks.  And if you want to know about how you can win pupStar #1, check out the mimoco site.

MINI REVIEW: Maori Punk

Img_1722
Img_1723

Joe Grady designed the newest Circus Punk - named Maori Punk.  You've probably seen plenty of Grady's designs around, but this is his first CP.

As far as the two designs, I always dug punks that utilized both sides of the canvas, so that's why I created a separate back design. The front of this punk shows a Maori Male's facial tattoos called Ta Moko.  The back panel is actually a decorative pattern they carved into their wooden oars.

The body fabric is different than traditional Circus Punks, and they are also using a new printing process. This is the second punk produced using sublimation printing, which is used as an option for artists who have designs that go beyond screen printing limitations.

The Maori Punk is an exclusive that was released at the Black Friday 13th at FlyOver Gallery in Madison, WI.  It was released with two different fur options...the one above and one with black, brown and green fur.  Joe said that there are only 3 left at FlyOver...so best of luck picking one up!
