So uh plushies, you guys make them?

I'm working on a set of the whole RED team+ Miss Pauling and Merasmus. So far Spy, Sniper, Medic, and Engineer are done. I'll post Spy here when I can get a better pic but here's the rest of them for now.

I know Medic is missing his glasses but they're less chunky than ether Engineer's goggle or Sniper's shades so I need a better solution on how to make them.

And here's Engi, who is actually the same height as the rest. The only one that's getting a different body pattern is Heavy (and maybe Pauling).

These are really fucking cute, holy shit. Dat detail on the medpack and sentry. Moar!

Oh, and with Medic's glasses.. have you thought of making them out of craft wire or some such? Or would you prefer them to be plush in feel/actually made of fabric?

Thank you! Demoman is next because Heavy is getting a custom body pattern.

The issue is I'd want them to be A) lense'd, B) as perfectly round as possible, and C) as fabric as possible so wire is tough. Maybe some kind of wrapped wire? I'll do more tests

What did you use for Sniper's lenses?

One option is hand-stitching felt into the glasses' frame shape, with projector film/some kind of thin, clear plastic for the lenses. If it's something as lightweight as projector film and felt, you probably wouldn't need a wire inside the fabric frames.

I only suggested wire thinking you'd have it uncovered, since it would probably be easiest to just bend wire into the right shape.

His lenses are PVC film. The issue with medic is keeping the frames thin. I might just switch to a dark grey felt for his frame to downplay the size, as the black might be too bold.

I don't make plushies (or cosplay) myself, I haven't the slightest idea how to sew, or how much it would cost. But I love these, they're adorable!

You might consider making frames out of flexible plastic strands (you can split nylon boning down the middle, or even just repurpose zip-ties) for a thin, flexible base that will hold and recover its shape. If you want to keep the "all fabric" look, you can wrap the plastic frame in thread.

That may work, I'll have to do some tests. Nylon is probably going to be my best bet because it's tough and flexible even when thin.

I haven't made much headway in updating Sniper/Medic's specs, but I DID finish Demoman and got new pics of Spy. Enjoy!

So far Engineer and Demoman are the only ones with the mixed wire gauges in their armatures. I think it'll be the standard for the rest.

And lastly, new photo of Spy.

Sadly the intel is back in New Jersey but I guess that's all the better for BLU team.
