Hello Beastie friends! And in case the post title had you wondering – no, I haven’t drastically changed direction and started working in near-future tech. The Beastie virtual reality experience is probably at least a couple of years away. Virtual reality FOR Beasties though – that I can do!
This woolly monster dude was created as a very special gift for a guy who’s also super into his tech. The VR headset and headphones are modelled on his human-size equivalents… But they’ve been cunningly Beastified using 100% wool felt and a little bit of embroidery!
And the tech doesn’t stop there, either! He’s also got a special Beastie-sized controller for a drone…
… Which is apparently hovering above us somewhere!
But how is he holding onto that thing?
Special magnetic paws, of course!
Now he can grab all sorts of cool stuff.
A Beastie has to stay fit, after all! And since this little guy’s human counterpart works in a gym, he’ll fit right in there too. Especially in his cool shorts and muscle vest outfit…
Wait a sec, who’s that I hear?
It’s our Beastie’s trusty pup – a Beastie-sized Pekingese! (Or should that be Beastie-ngese?)
Anyway, it looks like this sweet little felted fuzzball is certainly happy to see his owner!
And now, just one more accessory to complete the look. This Beastie is off to live in Greece, so he’ll definitely need…
That’s better. Time to kick back and relax…
… Because this modelling malarkey is tougher than it looks!
Thanks to Trish for commissioning this awesome, accessory-laden Beastie! I hope he’s enjoying his new life in the sunny Med. I really need to start delivering these Beasties by hand, and get to some of the exotic places where they end up!
We’ll be back next week, when Paddy and Plunkett will be helping out an unexpected visitor. See you then!
