This plushie has a bit of a special story... and a special purpose.
You see I have always had good grades in school and everything was always great, until suddenly something went awry and I started to get tired, I missed classes and I had trouble concentrating. Turned out the reason behind this is that I had anemia. So after that it became a struggle... to get back on my feet again and back to school and an active life. It took a long while.. but I think it's finally taking a positive turn I have more energy and more motivation and I want to get back into the turn of things.
But I figured I needed something to keep me going.. something that would remind me that I can do it if I have a bad day. So that's how Sherlock came to life.
He's my motivational buddy, he's that little friend that's always there with me.
I wanted to make something small, something that would fit in my pocket and be easy to carry around. This little nightfury easily fits in my hand if you fold his tail and wings around his body. He's filled with plastic pellets.. which makes him all floppy and posable. His head is filled the normal microfiber stuff.
I'm still amazed at how well he came out.
As for the name... he was originally gonna be Toothless, but I was watching BBC's Sherlock when making him and one thing led to another and I named him Sherlock. He might get a blue scarf eventually. So basically he's smart, rude and adorable.
(And a cat hair attraction..
He's still missing one tailfin in these pictures.. I wasn't sure if I would do a Toothless tail or not, but decided against it.
This is the first day he went with me to school.. and I went to the park during the lunch break and took some photos.
I will be making a photo diary with him.. after all he is becoming a little dragon adventurer from now on! ^^
