LOVE your Mass Effect plushies, and I have to say I love the Harbinger one. Cutest reaper I've ever seen. Was wondering if you have any plans making a Wrex and Grunt?

Thank you so much! I may try Wrex, i have issues with hand pain so it depends on how much i can do on the sewing machine. Hopefully i can figure it out. :)

You're welcome. I also know what you go through with hand pain. I have arthritis and some days it is just unbearable to do my chainmaille. Hell, even being on my computer hurts sometimes. I'm sure that if/when you do decide to do Wrex, he will be adorable!

Thank you for the vote of confidence!  :)  Gosh yes, chainmaille is so hard on the hands.  I wish I could do more of it.  I find it oddly relaxing, lol.

What kinds of fabric do you use on these? And I'm gonna guess that's paint for the eyes and face?

I mainly use fleece, especially for the basic body and head.  And yes, it's fabric paint for the features.  :)

Okay, I've been browsing your plushies over and over, and I have to ask you: how do you attach the hair? Is it with some sort of glue? I can see no seams in the pictures. The layered, fluffy hair of Alistair and Kaiden completely baffles me. You must use something very strong if it is with a glue. I imagine you don't want anything coming off during all the hugging. Share your secrets! Please? lol

I tell you, but I'd have to kill you. ;) 

Seriously, though, I do glue them.  I like FabriTac, personall.  It's kinda smelly and not all that cheap, but believe me it is totally worth it.  They are VERY securely attached, lol.  I gave a plushie the wrong hair color once and had to try and take their hair off, the hold on the glue was so strong I nearly ripped a hole in his head trying to get them off.

I'm actually planning a tutorial video on how to do the short hair like that, I need to finish my one about materials first though.  Soon!
