Banette by Zareidy Banette by Zareidy
Banette stands about 17 inches tall. It is made from smooth minky and has machine embroidered eyes that were designed by the client, :iconblumalou:, before being digitized by yours truly. The zipper, braid tail, and putting rattles in the head (so it makes the same sound it does in Poke-amie) were also the client's ideas, and give a plush a very unique and spooky/haunted toy vibe. The zipper does unzip, as pictured. It was great to have such nice requests from the client, it made the project a collaboration. I wanted to make the proportions round and full but also sharp, and am pretty happy with the result. I also snuck in a picture with my Mimikyu plush, its a shy little thing.

She's so cool! It's really impressive that you got the zipper installed so cleanly, and even when it opens it looks perfect. Really great work!

Thanks! I had a little practice with the case for my dad's chess board I made at Christmas. It is a little crookedy when it is zipped, but I kind of like that vibe for a banette.

Thanks! There is something like a second head in there so it is all sealed.

Oh wowie wow!  These pictures look fantastic (and in the Mimikyu one, it looks like it's defending Mimikyu, awww)
:heart: I'm so excited that you made it so that the zipper can unzip.  I had considered it at first, but wasn't sure if that would be too much extra work/too difficult (although in my experience, you've never backed down from a challenge :D )
Again, thank you so so much for creating this plushie!  I can hardly wait for it to arrive :love:

I'm so glad you like it! I wasn't sure about the zipper at first, but I always like at least trying to make them work and I has some practice from a holiday project. It was my pleasure, you are one of my best clients (and most fun to work with)
