Papercraft foxes, tigers, and bears oh my

Who says that toys have to be made of vinyl or plastic? Created in a stylized, low polygon vector design, these paper creatures look deceptively simple. Designed and hand crafted by Estudio Guardabosques, their creations...

The corner booth at DesignerCon that housed Scott Tolleson, Lana Crooks, and Carson Catlin had a eye-catching combination of plushes and figures, both original and customized. It also had several tantalizing con-exclusives available for purchase to attendees. Scott's Kookie Glo Good (seen in the header) was a special glow-in-the-dark version of his Kookie No Good vinyl toy. Completing the lifecycle of the Deadbeet plush, an artist collaboration between Lana and Scott, is the Beetling, exclusive to DesignerCon.

While Carson did not have an exclusive for sale, his custom figures more than made up for it. He also had blind boxes of some of his Micro-Munny figures. There were even some extra prizes involved, depending on what figure was in your box. It was a really clever idea.

DesignerCon 2014: Flat Bonnie
by Natalie Kipper

As is her wont, Flat Bonnie's DesignerCon booth featured flat stuffed critters lined up on tiered displays resembling a grassy knoll. I spotted several fan favorites, like Flat Suggie the Sugar Glider and Flat Dusty the Chinchilla, nestled amongst the faux lawn dressings. The big draw were the two con-exclusives, though. The first was the Winter White edition of Sparq the Baby Dragon. This colorway resembled what fans saw in teasers of this character prior to its debut release at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Following in the winter theme, the second exclusive is Jackalope - Frozen edition. I especially liked the Jackalope's forest-y feel, with the little pleather leaves on its arms and horns.

You can find more of Flat Bonnie's darling flatties on her online store.

I'm not going to lie; I have a soft spot for jellykoe's Tox City line. The series of plushes were a big success on Kickstarter and I adored their New York Comic Con exclusive addition as well. Kelly and J. Spencer Shull brought several Tox City citizens with them to last weekend's DesignerCon along with an extra-special one: Gillbert - Big Katuna Edition. The exclusive mutant came dressed in swim shorts and felt sunglasses, carrying a hand-painted wooden surfboard. He even comes in a different shade than the original Gillbert, as if he got a tan. As an added bonus, he can be dressed and undressed as you please. He was a riot!

In addition to the Tox City plushes, there was also a display of J. Spencer's paintings and custom figures. You can purchase and see more of jellykoe's work on their website.
