I bet you've never seen one of these before!!!

A giant plushie mosquito larvae.

Named Skipper. And yup, that's me holding him.


I was inspired by an ethology lab where we were studying the behaviors of mosquito larvae. I decided the world needed more mosquito plushies. So I spend all afternoon/evening creating this creature, inspired by pictures online. Tried to make him as accurate as possible, within my limited, make-it-up-as-I-go-along sewing skills.

I'm pretty impressed with myself, honestly.

I just wanna cuddle him! *squeeze*

That's brilliant! The creepier and crawly-er the plush, the better, in my opinion.

Claire said...

Wow! That is so original. Excellent work!

cate, I totally agree!

The problem is most creepy crawlies are difficult to make... who knows what I'll come up with next though!

but if people really love it which im sure they will they will pay what it's worth because I can see the time and effort that went into designing and creating this
