Working on plush dolls for an Artist Alley table at AnimeFest (Dallas, TX).  The plans right now are to make Pokemon trainers and some Smash Bros. characters.  Who would you like to see in plush form? :)
Ness from Earthbound / Smash Bros plush doll by MandyNeko
Ness from Earthbound / Smash Bros plush doll
I'm starting on a series of Smash Bros. themed plush dolls, and I decided to do Ness first.  His design looks simple, but there's a lot of work that went into it!
The doll is made from craft velour and minky with fleece details for his backpack.  The face is embroidered, and details (the backpack buckles and shoelaces) are done in fabric paint. He's stuffed with Poly-fil Soft and Silky stuffing and stands approximately 12" tall.…
Misty Fan Plush v.2 by MandyNeko
Misty Fan Plush v.2
You may remember my very first plush doll I did of Misty from Pokemon (here:…). This is my new, improved plush technique with larger, modified patterns, embroidered face, and high quality materials including craft velour and minky. Naturally I had to start with Misty once again!  Her basic design makes her a great first doll to try out a pattern with.

This doll doesn't have the option to sit, just stand, but that helps her look better when standing. I currently have several more dolls in progress, including a new Geno, Brock, May, and Ness.  I have future plans to also make Marth, Link, Dark Link, Pit, and others!  I'm hoping to have a table at the Artist Alley at AnimeFest 2015, but I'm still waiting to see if I get in or not!

Misty is up for sale in my Etsy shop:…

I am not currently taking custom commission doll orders, though.

Vintage style Peach and Baby Mario
Newest costumes completed for All-Con 2015. We took Best in Show at the Cosplay Contest!

Princess Peach's huge ballgowns aren't practical for taking care of a baby, so I designed an original take on Peach with a 1950's inspired dress. The designs at the bottom were done with 3D printed stamps that I modeled myself!
