Basically popping in here to repeat what Neo said. I had no doubt you were going to be a winner (ArenaNet staff are suckers for baby quaggan), but even more pleased to see you got First Prize.

Awesome work. :cool:

Custom request quaggan that has been the bane of my existence. ;-) Hehehe.  This one took so long to do because all the beading is hand made out of polymer clay. I restarted it's outfit at least 3 times making improvements and in the end the headpiece still is not quite the right shape but I hope it is close enough. With all the restarts I completely lost track of how much time this one took to complete but I am sure it is over 20 hours.   From now on I am only doing outfits from my own mind, trying to recreate ones from in game drive me crazy when I can't get it exactly right.

This one I adjusted the posture a bit to look more like the "at rest crouching" they seem to do instead of my usual "standing at attention" pose.

I've had a couple requests to make one of these and since I had a quaggan turn out a bit irregular it was a good time to test one out. Getting the fabric to settle down (GW2G wont let me use the other common word for curtain, interesting) exactly where I want it is not as easy as it seems. I thought the darkening around the eyes and along the bottom were enough but it doesn't seem as apparent in the pictures.

I just saw the quaggen ghost plushie!   Superb job, thanks for the smile :)

The other plushies are really cool too.   You're going to have an entire army of them soon.

That pink quaggan, I don't think my "adowable meter" can handle it. :qq:

It needs more work, but for a first attempt I think it is passable for working off such a tiny picture.  I am going to make one that is an actual wearable pack and fix what I didn't like with this one.  My kids are getting overrun with quaggans.  >.<

All of your quaggans are so adorable! You are such a talented plushie maker :) And I agree with Runemima's husband, having them say "Coo!" is a really great idea!

Thank you :-)  Hehee.  Electronics are way beyond my abilities but one of those squeezy squeaky toys would sure be a hoot.  ;)

Edit:  And my daughter just put board shorts on it and named it Pudding.  o.O

Oh great. Now that I know that the store exists I'm going to have to keep an eye on it to snag one for myself ^^

She has an Etsy, but I think she is moving it somewhere else. Not sure if she sells her plushies. But she has some other excellent creations there.

Yep, I am moving from Etsy to Storenvy. Right now I am bogged down with requests and home projects (it is almost spring! I can finally work in the garage again!) but I am slowly making my way through my commission list and my personal project list.  I wish I could craft things for everyone (Share the quaggan love!!)  but there are just not enough hours in my day. But I am doing my best!  I think I finally figured out a viable workaround for my backpack issue (keeping the stuffed shape but having fair amount of storage space inside) which I am going to test out asap.
