This past PAX East I made some plushes for my favorite people like I always do. I only tweeted pictures but I never blogged or posted photos here, so here I go.
stuffed stuff: Plush Pyth hat for Darren’s new baby, Milo!
created and stuffed: April 2014
I’ve been following & supporting Supergiant Games since PAX East 2011. I’m such a huge fan of them, I even made plushes of Plush Pyth & Ankle Gators from their first game, Bastion, for each staff member of the studio.
Right before PAX East this year, I just got wonderful news from Darren Korb, the composer at Supergiant Games.
Everyone, meet Milo Archibald Labrador Korb: breaking hearts since 9:32AM pic.twitter.com/PIPa4eYAWG

He and his wife Michelle had a baby boy!
I wanted to give them something but I didn’t have time to go get anything cool (like Totoro related baby stuff). So, I decided to make something.
I found a free pattern for a baby fleece hat online (I can’t remember where I found the pattern.) And I used the pattern to make a Plush Pyth hat.
I added the pink muzzle, eyes, horns, fake stitching, and my favorite, tail! It was for a newborn baby so everything was sewn on.
I visited the Supergiant Games booth on Friday morning when they were setting up, and luckily I got to meet Darren, Michelle and Milo.
A few days later they sent me this picture.
YES, a tiny baby & French bulldog, Higgins! I died. (As I kind of expected it was HUGE on him. I don’t know why the top part was so roomy, but I guess he can grow into it…?)

Darren, Michelle, Milo and Higgins, I wish you all best and with lots of love! I’m so jealous that Milo gets free a live concert from Darren!
