Dark Lord Ganondorf Plushie by tavington Dark Lord Ganondorf Plushie by tavington
Please full view! Thank you! :heart:

Check out Zelda too!


Hes finally finished! After 10 or so days of work, I am proud to say hes completed!
My very own Dark Lord Ganondorf plushie from Twilight Princess.

Ive seen a few people make this version and wanted to have a go at it myself.
This is the most elaborate plush project Ive ever attempted!
Id have never imagined hed turn out so big though! Hes around 25 inches (60cm tall)

I dont even know what sparked the desire to make one, really, though Im very glad I did!

Wow, I used so many materials to make this one. (Including 4 small bottles of fabric paint!!) Heres the lowdown on a few of the things I used and made:

-100% cotton body with poly fibre filling and fleece feet with foam insoles
-Fleece hair, sewn as 6 separate cone shapes, and hot glued to his head
-Brown velvet underclothes (top and trousers)
-Navy blue felt armour, with fabric paint edging
-Pleather belt with rhinestone and fabric paint detailing
-Suede material on front of armour with Gerudo pattern
-Various rhinestones and diamantes for decoration
-Red velvet cloak (detachable via velcro) with fabric paint and gold detailing
-White fleece and felt execution sword (detachable via velcro)
-Various Copic marker detailing with some permanent marker in silver on the armour
-Real earrings with Sculpey diamond shaped drops
-Various red ribbon threaded to his armour and crotch area, and threaded to his feet also.
-Foam, felt and beaded head dress with rhinestones and fabric paint

He will be attending events around the UK with me, as my mascot Ganny at London Expo in May and possibly other ones too.

-EDIT- He now has a voice! He has a sound box under his tunic with his menacing Ocarina of Time laugh!

-EDIT 2-

lol, everybody does. i was setting up tables for a video shoot in the childrens section of a local library while in my ganondorf cosplay, and little kids came up to me wanting me to chase them. didn't know who i was suposed to be, just saw big and green, and wanted me to chase them. the parents and librarians got a kick out of it too. i even got stoped for pics in the middle of the street when i walked down to a cafe to get soome lunch.

This is one of the most excellent handmade dolls I've ever seen. The effort, intricacy and life breathed into it make it a real sight to see. You have a genuine talent, in my opinion, and deserve all the recognition you get. :)

Your friends'll have the luck to see a Ganondorf plush in their real life...
At the moment, I want to have the same plush as having Ganny at our home is ... a miracle!
Ganny? Loving Christmas? Of course he does!

He will be just as loved next year though. I would never forget to take him anywhere :3

This is awesome! How did you make his face? There's so much shape to it, but I only see a couple seam lines. It looks incredible!

tavington Featured By Owner May 24, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
The face consists of a seam in the middle and a 3-dimensional nose. The rest of the shading is done by acrylic paints :D

Thanks for the compliments!

Hehe thank you! It was difficult to get it to mix the exact same colour. I think it probably came out better on the photographs than IRL ^^;

Thank you Helen! Though I really need some tips from you on how to make smaller dolls in future, I think!
Ganny can't wait to meet Link! and he says he's "heard all about you, Mother of Link!" :D

I can gladly tip away on Sunday! :D Link's excited too, new friends to play with! :giggle: Hey I just thought, since i made Princess Zelda as a plush doll, should I bring her along too for the Photoshoot? (although she is the Ocarina of Time version)
