This is Miyako ("Beautiful night child" according to babynames website), a lovely silver thee tailed vixen
She's my entry to
's craft contest! I actually already finished her in March but wanted to wait until the end of the contest to upload her. She's 17 cm (6,7 inch) tall from front feet to forehead and has 3 tails which are all 14 cm (5,5 inch) long. The tails are wired so they can be made to lie flat or curve up or outwards
She has a pair of striking blue glass eyes and an embroidered black nose. Her tipped grey fur is a high quality woven faux fur, I am not sure what brand, but it may have been Tyber. I just know I got the very last piece of it as it went out of production a few years ago. All the black fabrics are from Steiff Schulte, except for the minky on the inner ears and pawpads. The fur is extremely soft, as are the tails
I gave her some Copic accents on her face to resemble the mask silver foxes often have, it has some blue shades in as well to match the eyes. I'm very happy with how she turned out and I hope she'll have a good chance of making it in the contest
The tails though! Goodness this was one of the hardest plushies I've made so far: turning those thin legs and attaching the tree fluffy tails was tough, not to mention hard to see because it is all black! If ever I make another kitsune (probably in another colour) I'll be sure to size it up a bit; I'm not going to do it in this size again xD
Also, I recorded a video to show the tails posed with one hand (please excuse the sound, I was not aware that that would also be recorded xD )youtu.be/b6rc480opqg
Could do more video recordings in the future.
