Swampert Plush by Ashayx Swampert Plush by Ashayx
Let me tell you a short story about why I have done this little guy for myself.

I love swampert, well I like nearly every pokemon, there are just some which I like more then others.
I never got around to buy a swampert pokedoll, because now there aren't produced anymore and the only guys selling them are
previous collectors (I guess) who want way too much money I can spend on a single pokedoll. (also they mostly only ship within USA : / )
[ I mean come on 500 for a swampert+blaziken+sceptile pokedoll???]
well so I have no other choice as to make a different one for myself...*sigh*
Actually I thought about plushing one ever since I've done the mudkip one ages ago, but I delayed it because I first wanted to get better.
I'm really picky when it comes to plushes, so I'm really disappointed when I fuck up even the smallest detail.
I'm a bit upset about the fact that he's looking up, but oh well can't change that now.
Other than that I'm really happy about his outcome haha ^w^

He's about 16cm tall
Made with Nicky, eyes are out of felt
Not for sale

He's precious! I'm a beginning plushie maker (I can barely sew), and I've been looking for a reasonably priced Swampert for sooo long! :D He's very cute!

Oh man I hear you when it comes to expensive plush. Sad some are almost impossible for a fan to get because not everyone can afford 500$ for a plush, especially if you're a student. Even some of the new plush like Vaporeon who sell quickly, the price goes up because many people buy a bunch to resell them for triple the price. X.x I'm not against those who can afford the expensive ones though! I just wish there was more easily accessible merchandise for the people who can't throw 100$ + all of a sudden when new stuff comes out and then have to pay triple for having to wait by saving money. Kinda why I'm learning to make my own pokeplush XD

I hope I explained myself well enough though I don't want it to read the wrong way.

It's not like I don't have the money for it, I just can't afford to spend
such a huge amount on one tiny plush which in the past cost way less than now :/
This is were I reach a point where my love for collecting plushes comes to an end.
I'm happy for people who can and are willing to pay that much, I just can't.
I'm also living in Europe, so I have to import such stuff which only
adds more to the total price...X_X

I gained enough skill to craft some of my Plushwishes, but there's some kind of
feeling that I have for both drawings and plushes I do for myself were I'm never
100% satisfied no matter how it turned out |D haha

Oh yes, I understand and shipping costs going up, wow not cool. But for what it's worth yours looks very official! :meow: Hopefully one day you can get an official one so yours will have a friend. I saw one once go for less than 500 (I think it was 300 or something) in an auction so I think there's still some hope. I would love a shiny Raikou Pokedoll and those are pretty expensive too (as well as the Poketime Wailord)

I'm lucky someone trades a swampert for a commission with me.
I have quite a few Pokedolls, so I won't feel lonely haha

Oh yes I'd like one of those shiny Raikou/Entei/Suicune too but to be honest they are really
rare and if you spot one for sale...oh man the price X__x

good luck with your crafts! :3

Oh that's awesome. Congrats! :meow:
I have some too (my fav is my Jolteon Pokedoll)

Thanks, c: I'm enjoying making the plushies but until I can get a good plush fabric (they don't have minky here) I'm not posting any yet. XD

I love my jolteon pokedoll too <3

Minky isn't available at my place either, I'd have to import it for much money
Try searching for nicky/nicki that's the one I'm using for most of my plushes.
It's a nice alternative.

I just checked about Nicki fabric. It looks really soft n.n I found this site where you can look at them up close XD [link] I'll try and see if they sell this fabric where I live since so far I've only seen sites from Europe.

I've been after the Sceptile Pokedoll as a collector and because I love that line... and Pokedolls haha, but also can never afford him when he pops up, so I know how you feel ;A; You did a great job though, I think this Swampert is ADORABLE! I actually really like his expression. ^_^
