C2E2 2013: Nakama Toys

The name on the booth might have said Nakama Toys, but perhaps it also should have said "Jeff Lamm" underneath it, because Jeff's work was just as prevalent at the booth. Monster Worship brought both the standing and sitting ...

C2E2 2013: MadKnits

MadKnits had a number of plushes at C2E2 (noticing a trend?), but unlike the other makers, they built their toys around a theme. The story they made up involves an alien ship crashing on the earth. Its inhabitants adapted to ...

C2E2 2013: House of Darkly

House of Darkly set up at C2E2 with a bunch of zany plushes. Some were inspired by food, others were inspired by weather, but all were colorful and odd. I was partial to the little Bedevilled Eggs, but at $35 they were too pr...

C2E2 2013: jellykoe
by Natalie Kipper

C2E2 attendees had the chance to see some pretty epic things at the convention such as cosplayers, celebrities, and smiling purple narwhals. The folks over at jellykoe are responsible for the last one on that list (you can call him Narwaldo). But, they didn't stop there. jellykoe also brought a con-exclusive Chill Bear variant of their Wonky Bear. Their Split Hare and Better Yeti made an appearance as well. 

The fun didn't end with the plush offerings, however. There also were paintings and custom figures by J. Spencer Shull, one half of the team that makes up jellykoe (the other half would be his wife, Kelly). 

Head on over to the gallery and see jellykoe's C2E2 goods for yourself!

C2E2 2013: Little Brass Bird

C2E2 had a ton of plushes on display. Plush isn't normally my area but Little Brass Bird's offerings made an impression on me. Their offerings can be strange, but they are pretty cute. There were some food-based plushes on di...
