The Last Unicorn by melkatsa The Last Unicorn by melkatsa
Roughly 15 inches x 10 inches x 4 inches
Made with microplush, faux fur, faux suede, cotton, thread, felt, plastic safety eyes, polyfil stuffing, fleece, sand (for weight), and metal wire

----

The unicorn stood still at the edge of the forest and said aloud, "I am the only unicorn there is." They were the first words she had spoken, even to herself, in more than a hundred years.

... suppose they are hiding together, somewhere far away? What if they are hiding and waiting for me?

- The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

----

One of my pieces for The Last Unicorn Art Show! Both the book and the movie were among my favorites growing up, so when I heard about this show I jumped at the chance to be a part of it.

This is definitely one of the most complex and difficult plush projects I've ever done. She has a fleece-wrapped wire skeleton that allows her neck, legs, and tail to be posed, so she's more of a soft sculpture than an actual plush toy. In my original sketch the elongation of her head, the size of her ears, and the thinness of her legs were much more exaggerated, but I think she came out all right :)

*EDIT*
Thank you =prosaix and `MyntKat for the Daily Deviation! The response to this piece has been and continues to be amazing. Thank you all for your comments. I'm happy to hear that so many of us share a love for this character and her story!

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-11
It can be difficult to create fine details in plush toys, but The Last Unicorn by ~melkatsa shows that it is possible! The skinny legs, long neck and cute horn make this one really stand out. ( Suggested by prosaix and Featured by MyntKat )

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl
