Still recovering from all the swooning after the MLP Season 2 finale -- that was one of the most amazing things I've seen in my life, and that's including anime too. Great job, y'all!
Must resist the urge to make a Chrysalis paper plushie,... have to stick to schedule...! ^-^
In any event, here's the first batch of prototypes for my parasprite paper plushies. They'll be low-tier cost items similar to accessories, although these can be purchased in a set for an even lower cost. ^^
The blue one in the upper left hand corner was the first, and has a near-perfect globe-shape that makes it easier to stand up on its own, but sadly uses more material and has an easily-deformed face.
#2 to its left has a flatter body with a cuter face, but with a double-layer frilled wing that's still time and resource heavy (plus maybe a tad bit untidy).
#3 in the center uses a different colour and has a single-layer frilled wing, but still seems a bit untidy.
#4 is the first to experiment with a different neater wing-style. The results are petty, but take too long to realize, plus the ink used for the veins can smudge off.
#5 in the lower left-hand corner uses a hybrid wing approach, combine a full overlay with a frilled edge. This makes the wing design neater and elegant, while also allowing a proper surface for the ink to stick too. Combine that with the right body shape, and this will probably be the go-to design for all the other parasprites.
