Catwoman version 2.0...haha. I always enjoy making a new version of an old plush just to see my progress over the past couple of years...

When Dick Grayson grew up and eventually got tired of being Batman's side-kick, Robin, he decided to create his own brand of human vigilantism. As a result, he renames himself Nightwing, recalling his adventure in the Kryptonian city of Kandor, where he and Batman meet the local hero of the same name. Check him out!

Cyclops is a superhero who often serves as the field leader of the X-Men. A mutant, Cyclops emits a powerful energy beam from his eyes known as an "optic blast"). In uniform, he wears a battle visor with a single, ruby-quartz lens running eye-to-eye; the resulting one-eyed appearance is why he is codenamed "Cyclops." Also, they just look cool...haha.

For the 2 or 3 people that haven't heard the song "Gangnam Style" yet, it is actually a Korean Pop song by the singer PSY that has created an insane craze here in the states for the past month or so. Actually, as I was typing this, I just checked the youtube views for the music video and it is almost to 636 Million views....that's nuts...

So, I was experimenting with smaller custom plush toys recently and ended up creating some pretty cool key chain plushies. Each of these guys are about 5" tall and they contain all of the detail of the bigger plushies, just in a smaller pocket sized version. I think they turned out great and I might start making some more soon. Check them out...

In Norse mythology, Thor (from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing, healing and fertility...that's right...fertility... Anyway, Captain America and Thor are the biggest plushies I made and each stand about 2 feet tall. Enjoy!

Steve Rogers was a frail young man who became Captain America after he was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon. Also, you can probably tell from the pictures that this is the biggest plush I have ever made. It is roughly the size of a bed pillow....gigantic!!!!

Larry the Lobster is a muscular red lobster who is a common patron and lifeguard of Bikini Bottom's popular beach, Goo Lagoon from the Spongebob Squarepants cartoon. He is a bro ski who gets all the ladies, because everyone loves a bodybuilding lobster...i guess...haha.

So, I just watched The Dark Knight Rises this past weekend and absolutely loved it. Bane was an amazing character and I adored everything about him....including his cool accent...haha. Anyway, I couldn't resist making a cuddly plush version of big bad Bane. Enjoy!

Abe, real name Langdon Everett Caul, is a humanoid amphibious creature that has a pair of gills on his neck, allowing him to breathe underwater, but also a set of normal human lungs allowing him to stay above and out of water for long periods. He also possesses webbed hands and feet, and has large, bright eyes that help to see in murky, thick water. This plushie version is actually based on the original comic style which looked pretty different from the movie version. Nevertheless, he is still a cool character...

Hellboy, a well-meaning demon whose true name is Anung Un Rama, was summoned from Hell to Earth as an infant on December 23, 1944 by the Nazis. Eventually, he was discovered by the Allied Forces; amongst them, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, who formed the United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD). In time Hellboy grew to be a large, red-skinned demon with a tail, horns (which he files off, leaving behind the signature circular stumps on his forehead), cloven hooves for feet, and an oversized right hand made of stone. Honestly, I still firmly believe that the Hellboy characters are some of the most interesting and well designed characters in modern comics...

I got a special request recently to make a custom Hello Kitty doll. As a result, I whipped up this cute little plush. It's funny, I never thought that I would ever make one of these just because there are sooooooooooo many plush Hello Kitty's out there. Nevertheless, I think she turned out pretty good!

The final Spongebob baddie that I made is the infamous ManRay! This guy is the archenemy of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Even though at times he renounced his evil ways, he eventually teamed up with the Dirty Bubble to form the Every Villain Is Lemons organizations...also known as E.V.I.L.

Expanding on my line of SpongeBob characters...up next is the Dirty Bubble! He is the arch nemesis of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. Because he is a giant, dirty bubble, hence his name, his superpower is that he can capture an object by landing over it and sucking it in. Luckily, his only weaknesses are sharp objects that pop him....which you can find literally everywhere....haha

Are you ready kids? Aye-Aye Captain! Mermaid Man and his trusty side-kick Barnacle Boy are Spongebob's favorite superhero duo. They were awesome because they drove around in the Invisible Boat-Mobile and had a cool hideout called the Mermalair. However, Mermaid Man hasn't fought crime in over 65 years and now he spends his time at the Shady Shoals Rest Home.

Ever wonder what would happen to the Dark Knight when Bruce Wayne eventually gets too old to fight crime? Well, in the Batman Beyond series, he trains a troublemaker teenager named Terry McGinnis to become the new Batman. Armed with a new high-tech Batsuit, McGinnis starts taking down the new baddies of Gotham one by one...

Ever wonder what would have happened if Superman would have landed in the Ukraine instead of the US? Well....chaos ensues...haha. In fact, the Red Son version of Batman actually joins up with Lex Luthor in an effort to bring down and destroy the Man of Steel....crazy right?!?!?!

Also known as Scarecrow, Dr. Jonathan Crane was a psychologist who uses a variety of drugs and psychological tactics to exploit the fears and phobias of his enemies. This plushie is based on the Batman Begins version played by Cillian Murphy...who is actually pretty creepy without the mask...

Peter Parker was just like any other socially awkward teenager until a bite from a radioactive spider gave him superpowers. Spider-Man was always my favorite superhero because of his wise-ass comments that he would use to taunt the ridiculous vilians he had to fight. I mean, if you are going to wear a tight blue and red spandex costume....you have to have a sense of humor...

What happens when you cross a homicidal maniac serial killer with a alien symbiote?......You get Carnage! This guy was as crazy as they come! I had some fun making this guy, and let me tell you, it took a lot of patience...haha. I actually had to sew two fronts and two backs together in order to create that creepy holy look, but I think it turned out pretty well.
