Beluga and Friends

stuffed animal toy

I designed and created Beluga from start to finish. Originally the inspiration was from a 3D form exercise. 

Three Dimensional Organic Form

The initial form was inspired from a biomorphic 3d form shaped from plaster. The bulbous organic form would later inspire me to create a beluga whale.

Semi-final Beluga 

Before making the final form of the Beluga whale I practiced making the pattern by making a muslin prototype.

Final Beluga

The final prototype was made with velcro on its arms so that it can hold various "toys" or its "friends"

Beluga with Friends

I wanted to create a stuffed animal that would have little toys of its own. The fish and octopus were made out of felt and attached using velcro.
