Flat Bonnie's Sparq the Baby Dragon to debut at SDCC

When we first got a glimpse of Flat Bonnie's Sparq the Baby Dragon back in May, he was a nameless prototype, filled with possibilities and cotton. Now, he is on his way to debut at San Diego Comic-Con. And seeing how at SDCC,...

Custom Delights: The many hats of a Poro

League of Legends' little furball Poro is one of my favorite gaming characters as of late, but sadly, there is little in the way of actual Poro merchandise (or really, any merchandise) outside of the crafting community. Thank...

After quite a bit of teasing on their Facebook page, Alvin and Cheri Ong of Furry Feline Creatives have fully revealed their new plushes exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con. The series of four is entitled "Kawaii Kaiju Friends" and decks Furry Feline Creatives' Purridge, Ringo, and Dude in costumes themed to those old-school Japanese monster figures.

Kitty Purridge is now "Kawaii Kaiju Purridge" (US$60 each) and can be found in either a tangerine or lightning blue-colored Cyclops-style monster suit. Dude the turtle grows some spiky bits as "Go-Go Supaiku Dude" (US$50). And finally, Ringo the cat transforms into the heroic "Ultra Mega Ringo" (US$50). I presume his battles are going to be more of the pillow fight variety, though. He just looks so squishy! Each of these plushes will be limited to 10 pieces. Given that each plush is handmade, I would make a stop at this booth early if one of these guys is on your shopping list.

San Diego Comic-Con attendees will have a chance to purchase these cuties as well as meet the artists at booth 5149 (right next to Tokidoki). I highly recommend checking them out. Besides being genuinely enthusiastic about their toys and toy culture, Alvin and Cheri always put tons of effort into making their booth look super-cool. Seriously, it'll be hard to miss, visually speaking.

C2E2 2014: House of Darkly
by Natalie Kipper

Seeming to come directly from WonderCon, House of Darkly's roster of kooky and creative plushes may give you a few seconds of deja vu. But once you get a closer look, you'll notice that artist Anne Kirn had plenty of surprises for Chicago's con-goers. For starters, there is the C2E2-exclusive plush Deep Dish Pizza, a thick-crusted fellow with plenty of hand-made detail. I just love the little parmesan "freckles!" Beyond the con-exclusive, many of Anne's plush Flibble monsters (those fuzzy, round guys) were made for the event. Some were even made during the con!

Returning favorites included WonderCon's Super Kale, the Flying Toaster, Windy Weather, and Sassy Pie slices in various flavors. Visitors to the booth also got a look at Anne's puppet of Sam Winchester from Supernatural. That one is, unfortunately, not for sale.
