Toothless Plush #4: My plush! by Super3dcow Toothless Plush #4: My plush! by Super3dcow
Here it finally is, my Toothless plush. After over 6 months of working on him, along with 2 others, I finally got him done.

He was shown off at the 3rd show in the US of the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular in Wilkes Barre, and at Otakon 2012.

Like the previous plush, he is made from the Ultra Cuddle Fleece, which is amazing to hold, but I will probably never use it again because of how difficult it is to handle.

Some additions were made with this plush to try and make it more accurate to the real Toothless. I added rows of 8 scales to his two big horns, the same amount that he has.

Also, I curved his tail spikes toward the back, just like in the movie. I was very pleased with how that turned out.
In the center of his body, I put in a thin 1 foot pouch with the beads in it, to add extra weight. Because of how thin and long it is, you can't even feel that it's there.

Also, a special addition I did to this, cause I saw someone else online do it, I stuck a powerful magnet right where his mouth is. Eventually I will make a fish, and put another magnet in that, so it will look like he is holding the fish in his mouth.

The eyes this time were sculpted and sanded by me, and were painted by my mom, who did an incredible job. I was planning on painting them myself, but I was running out of time to finish him before the Dragon Live Spectacular, so I asked for her help. She also sewed the wings on, which saved me a few more hours of work. The eyes have 8 layers of Polyurethane to give them that shine, and protective shell. It was fun applying the layers, and just watching the brush strokes disappear.

I hand painted the Dragon/Toothless logo onto the tail using fabric paint.
All the claws this time are made with a very good imitation leather that will last better than the first plush.

Interestingly enough, I ended up using our very first pattern for the head that we made for the first plush. We kept trying to improve on the original, but the changes we made took away his cuteness. I think using this head brought it back, and helped make it the best plush yet.

This guy was a huge hit at the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular. Children were frozen with mouths agape, girls were squeeing constantly, and I even had a few pictures taken. Kids liked petting it, as if it was a real animal, that was really cool.

However his popularity was even greater at Otakon 2012. Just like last year, I was swarmed countless times by groups of people. He had a small fish on his mouth, taking advantage of the magnet I put in there. The feedback I got from fans was so incredible and encouraging. I can't wait to make more things in the future.

So leave your comments, anything is much appreciated. I would love to hear what you think of it.

I am planning on making a plush for my daughter and have been scouring the web on how to attach these kind of eyes to the animal. Any insights, do you just glue them on with hot glue?

Super3dcow Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah I just hot glue them on. Afterward I use thread inside the head to pull them closer in so they become indented. I didn't do it well on this plush though, the later ones look much better. It's a little tricky because you want the eyes a little further apart than they are supposed to be, so when they get pulled in, they are the right distance.

i painted my first set of resin eyes with acrilic.. uhhh they look horrible!! are these painted using watercolour or acrillic? because water colour is what it looks like. Im much better at watercolour than acrilic which would help a lot if they were... if watercolour would stick to it n____n

The eyes on this plush are clay with acrylic paint on the outside. Only plushes 6-9 have resin eyes painted from the back. I'm sorry yours didn't come out too well :(

Absolutely amazing!!
I'm interested in making my own plush for my little sister and I was just wondering:

Have you (or anyone else) ever had any issues with the eyes falling of because they are only attached with glue? Or is it not too much of a worry and quite easy to just glue them back on again? Also what kind of clay is best to use if you want to use it for the eyes?

I know that you(and myself) put in so much more effort for your own plushie. This is still my fave out of all the 8-9 you have made. The head shot is amazing, the little bumps on his ears! So cute!

Recently, I've gotten interested in Toothless plushies and this one is one of the greater ones I've seen. The eyes are excellently done and I applaud your mom for the painting, she did a fantastic job! Another part that I love is the wings and the tail fins, beautiful. On the awesome scale, I'd give you a 10 out of 10. Fantastic job! :)

Could I buy him? If so, he will go to a loving home, I will never let him out of my sight! I know that he belongs to you, so I understand if you don't want to sell him but I thought that'd I'd at least ask invade you would.

I'm glad you are interested, but I won't be making any for sale for a while, because of how long they take. In any case, of the few that have sold, none have gone for less than $300. Even then I'm only getting about $3 an hour of work that goes into them.

Aww, sorry to hear that. Yeah a lot of the Toothless plush makers don't seem to reply much. I've had quite a few messaging me saying the same thing. I have a feeling the new official Toothless plushes for the second movie are going to look good.

They are a bit complex. I used Spirit's guide to do the details, but I created the wings myself. I guess by just following her guide you could make similar looking ones.

I won't be doing commissions for a while, as these plushies do take about 100 or more hours to make; it's hard to keep track of hours now. I would love to make one for you someday when I can though.
