Aka the japanese raccoondog. This plush has already been claimed and was picked up this afternoon so it is already sold, but I will make another.
First of all, I am shocked there are hardly any plushies of this animal species! It might be a rather unknown animal to some but still... So I put every bit of my efforts in the markings and looks of this little fluffball. c:
The tipped luxury fur used for the plush was just perfect to make a tanuki out of. I did have to trim some parts of the body to prevent him from becoming a complete poofball. All his markings are part of the pattern used (one side of the face already consists of 7 seperate parts) which took plenty of observing of pictures to get right. Each marking is sewn in by hand. He has a pair of shiny black eyes and a realistic nose.
This plush is floppy, meaning it is softly stuffed and can be posed any way you like. I forgot to measure him before he was picked up but he's around the same size as most of my small floppies.
