WoW - Darion Mograine plushie by eitanya WoW - Darion Mograine plushie by eitanya
My goodness, so much to say on this one. First off, after this and Tirion, I believe I am fully over my fear of puff paint, lol. There's no way I could have embroidered all of the detail on this. I'm really happy with how the paint turned out though.

First removable helmet! It's a little tricky to get it back on him, and it does mess up his hair, but hey. ;)

On the subject of his hair, guess who misread the colors in the reference pictures again? Yup, yours truly. I originally made him with brown hair and then found out it was wrong. Which sucks and is really hard to correct because it generally involves taking the plushie apart, but with all the armor already attached, it wasn't an option. After making all of that armor and doing all of that painting, I reeeeaally didn't want to remake the whole plushie. They say necessity is the mother of invention, but desperation isn't bad either. I managed to get all of his hair off (if anyone was worried about the hair not being well attached...don't. Believe me, it's on there.) After that I sewed a new back onto his head in the right color, then re-did the hair. I think I may do a tutorial on this. It sure beats having to remake a whole plushie!

12" tall, standing pattern, all fleece, details were hand painted with fabric paints.

Mmk so I scanned the other comments and no one has asked yet. Would you be willing to make a second one of these and sell it? I would pay an arm and a leg for the quality detail put into this plush, I am a big fan of Mograine... :3 Please send me a note back or a comment back, hope we can work something out.

I'm open to making another one, just not right now.  I'm working really slowly due to hand pain and I need to get caught up on the orders I already have.  :)

Oo thank you so much for the feed back, I will have to keep tabs on you for when you are able to make another. As I said, I am willing to pay and arm and a leg I already saw your 'pricing' and did not flinch. ^^I hope your hand gets better, I know how that goes. I have carpels tunnel in both my wrist, makes my hands unsteady and numbs them to the point I can't keep my grip. Just give me a holler when you are feeling better and we can discuss the final price ect~

So far I've broken four Brita water pitchers because I keep dropping them. ;P  Ah well, it's always something.  I'll definitely give you a shout though.  There was some debate about his hair color, would you want the same one?

Of course, he has red hair in game so red is a must. ^^ And ouch... Be careful with the fine china~ Try using the srunchie balls or stress balls for the muscles. It may help 'soften' the nerves, I have to do that every so often to relieve the stress in my nerves since they lock up time and time again.

I'll try that, I do the hot wax baths a lot now.  It's always worse when my hands are cold.

Have you tried wearing fingerless gloves? My bf does that a lot to help keep his hands warm, may help too. ^^

Yeah, I usually do wear some of the gauntlets or gloves that I make.  I have a pair of those therapy gloves but I can only stand them for a little while.

I love this almost as much as the Tirion plushie. The only problem I have is that his hair is red, when it is actually blonde. In game, the one quest where you see just his beard shows red hair, but in the comics it is very much blonde. I can just look at this (without the helmet) and think of Renault Mograine, who is still cool. The beautiful blue eyes are correct, however. Darion had gorgeous blue eyes in the comics.

Oh the hair.  The hair.  I actually had him completely finished and the nice lady who commissioned him pointed out that his hair was the wrong color (I originally used light brown.)  It all comes down to the reference pictures I'm using and what's available in the fleece, and ultimately what the customer wants.
