AHH I'm almost done!

Hello, everyone!

I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I'm almost done with my custom dratini for my fiancé!! :D
Although I have been putting off this project for a while, I finally complete 95% of it!
The last 5% is just the eyes and final touch ups!

Here's some info:
Material - Felt, metal wire, sewing machine, sewing kit (some places were hand-sewn)
Size - Supposed to be life size but ended up being bigger! 6' 8.2" instead of 5' 11"
Other - This was my first attempt to make a large plush. It turned out better than what I expected (I honestly expected myself to fail at it). Dratini is slightly poseable! His/Her head is too heavy to be up by its own ):



At the start, dratini had a flat head and I didn't like that.
I do kind of regret not keeping it but oh well what's done is done!

As you can see, dratini's body is completely poseable! His/Her head is way too heavy tho ):
That's something I need to take note of when I make other plushies.

I know dratini looks weird without eyes, so here's a sample of the final product!

On a side note, I've been seeing so much rumble U figures on pkmncollectors and it made me so hyped up!
I want to try the blind bag thing so bad. Unfortunately, they are unavailable here in Singapore ):

When I told my fiancé that I wanted to try, he was an absolute sweetheart and went to the nearby gamestop to get some for me.
Unfortunately (again), it was out of stock!!! D:
I was so upset. I was really looking forward to trying it out when I visit the states (19 Sep - YAY SOON!)

Then he did something that made me so grateful and I love him more than ever.
He went to search in another gamestop and bought 10 rumble U figures!!!
EEP. I'm so excited and I can't wait to open them.
He's not going to open it but wait for me so... I really hope I get an Eevee, Pikachu and Mew!! :D
FINGERS CROSSEDDD!

To those who read this whole chunk, which is your favourite rumble U figure? :D
