This week’s plush is deoxys in attack form! I happened to have all the yarn in storage for this one.
When I think back to gen 3 pokemon, I remember not having a gameboy advance to play it. My only exposure to them at the time was through Pokemon Colosseum on Gamecube and serebii.com. I have flashbacks to when recess was how you got rumours about new pokemon; a classmate of mine told me about how crazy deoxys looked compared to mewtwo. A google search confirmed that it was pretty crazy to look at; it reminded me of a sea monkey, only that it was partially malformed.
Fast forward to the present, I have taken a liking to this pokemon – mostly its attack and speed forms. The spaghetti arms connect to a decidedly hourglass figure, down to some rather sexy-looking peg legs. The spike accessories were the main reason behind choosing the attack form.
Knowing the shape of each part helped get this project moving – it could have been a start to a shapely figure if it weren’t so orange and blue. Most of the pieces were made up of cones and modified spheres; the hourglass shape came about by increasing on 2 quarters of the round, and leaving the alternating 2 quarters unchanged.
I didn’t realize how infrequently I see the back of this pokemon, until I started making more details. For years I didn’t know that the attack form had a spike tail, or even 3 blue dots with an orange back panel. I thought it was a true humanoid shape, butt and all; I wonder why this form is the only one with a tail?
With all the details in place, here are the final results:
Thanks for reading! Coincidentally, this is like a belated tribute to the Area 51 raid from last Sunday.
P.s. you may have noticed that I toggled around with the sidebar – I have added some commission slots in the shop section, if anyone is interested!
