Gizmo

 
Gizmo is a special order created in the likeness of a very much loved chinchilla (who is missing an arm and one toe).
 
He is made using a combination of wonderfully soft synthetic fur, which has been lined (to prevent stretch) and ultrasuede (for the ears/pads). He has been filled with polyfill, a bag of plastic pellets in his tummy and rubber pellets in his tail. He is 5-way cotterpin and hardboard jointed and has wire armature in his body/tail and all four legs, including his cute individual fingers and toes. He has black glass eyes with cotton cord representing the eyelids. His nose and mouth have been created using perle cotton embroidery thread and his individually applied whiskers are made from horse hair.
 
Gizmo has been needle/scissor sculpted and has been extensively airbrush shaded. He is more or less lifesized measuring 7.5" (to the top of his head, not including his ears).
