The Upbeats - Primitive Technique Plushies

I made these plushies around late September to October last year. This is the official post of these two plushies, inspired by The Upbeats' Primitive Technique LP.

About / Making of:
     - These two plushies, Snake and Wolf, were the first cloaked plushies I've made.
     - I attempted to make Snake first because I thought he'd be easier, but I ended up messing up the entire plush. This was because the fabric I was using to make the cloak wasn't the best material - too stiff and didn't flow the right way I wanted it to. Plus the base body had a different head (featured the Non Vogue "X" logo as the face). The black, snake-skin fabric draped over Snake's cloak was the only piece I could salvage from the mess up.
     - Snake's hood was frustrating to make. I think I had to go through 3-4 patterns to finally get the hood to look the way it does in the photos.
     - Wolf ended up being the easier plush to make, with no mistakes during the creation process, but took the longest to complete because of the layering of his costume.
