Creepy Crawlie Plushies

For my etsy shop I've been mostly making "cutesy" creatures because, well, they're easier.

However, I've been polishing up my sewing skillz.

So here goes!

First up is Skipper the Gigantic Mosquito Larvae. I was inspired by one of my ethology labs in which we observed mosquito larvae behavior. He's about 26" long. Would definitely not want to run into this guy in a dark alley.

I then decided to make his mother - Morticia the Gigantic Mosquito Plushie. She's about 21" long and 15" high to the tips of her antennae. She took a loooong time to make, and took all the brainpower I could muster to come up with such a design from scratch. They both can be found for sale in my etsy shop! Not sure if I *really* want to part with them, but if I kept all my plushies, I wouldn't be able to fit into my room, it would be full to the ceiling. Well, maybe not quite. But eventually.
