Queen Chrysalis by PlanetPlush Queen Chrysalis by PlanetPlush
Chrysalis is not for sale. She belongs to me.

She's finally finished! This is actually my third attempt. The other two didn't turn out so great and were scrapped. I have to say...I am so tired of sewing holes!!

Chrysalis is made from minky fabric. She has machine embroidered eyes and is 17 inches tall not including her horn. I spent an entire day learning how to use some new digitizing software. I love how her eyes came out! It's definitely the best embroidery design I've made.

I made tubed for her legs out of plastic canvas and wire, then I lined them with minky. The sash around Chrysalis' waist is made from satin fabric. I pleated it to give it a nice effect. Her wings are velboa and have quilt batting sewn inside along with some wire for poseability.

I colored the thing on her back with fabric marker, then blended it with my finger so it wouldn't look rough. And finally, Chrysalis' crown is made from minky and glass beads.

She was a lot of work! @-@

This is great. I just wish the comic had been better. The Queen was great I just felt that the first five issues (the ones I've read so far) were badly written as far as the Mane 6 being so out of character and the plots being so contrived/ignorant of the shows canon.

A lot of work indeed, but clearly worth the effort you put into her! Beautiful! Are there any patterns you used or made for her? I've been trying to formulate my own patterns and had a few ideas for the holes in her legs but am not really too sure about what I should do.
Dunkin-Darius Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Do you do commission's for plushies?
Reedemption Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
Build-A-Bear will never have her. The stuffing would blow out of those holes and blind the little children. And Chryssy will be proud.
Sephis-Dolls Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Do you have pattern for her hairs? I'm making the plush by myself but i have problems with her hairs @_@
EvilCleric Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2013
Dayumn! Nice work! Especially nice since the Queen isn't exactly friendly to those who want to bring her to life as a plush or model. Damn holes make it a bit maddening.
SydneyitsSydneyYo Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Cute!!! Really awesome details.
PantherPawCreations Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
I love it! :) By the way, where did you find minky that color?

She looks amazing. Very well done. :D
yume-ookami Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Holy cripes! She's awesome!!! *squee*

One big question I had was how did you do the holes? Like for the mane?
PlanetPlush Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I handstitched them.
yume-ookami Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
alrighty thanks!
Sgphad Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
That horn and those legs look amazing!
RyuRoots Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
This really is phenomincal. The holes look great, and the colors are all spot-on. It looks smooth, and certainly faithful! I'd love to have something like this, but not sure I could afford ya even if you were taking commissions. haha In any event, awesome work.

Wooow, she's amazing!!! I have to say, Chrysalis is one of my favorite villains! She's so amazing!

Suncatcher42 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013

schneelocke Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
Wow, you actually did all the holes in her legs, wings, mane and tail! I'm impressed; that must've been a ton of work, and yet you still managed to make her look so good. :)

I think it's fair to say this is the best Chrysalis plushie I've seen so far. Excellent!
PlanetPlush Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you! She was definitely a lot of work.
BlondeauJ Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I will forever wish i could make somthing as close to that in my life. Any tips?
MedicalRicky Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
What sort of witchcraft is this!? Holes!? *incoherent noises*
richfiles Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I would totally take up manly sewing if I thought I had half a chance at figuring out how to make a Chrysalis half as good as this one!
I love her!!!
She's so well fed!!!
OceanSunset22 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
