Duo Stuffed Toy
So I was just stalking/lurking around Instagram and Twitter then I found these:
I think these are for the Duolingo Team [?]
Look at the table I think these were sold to Harvard Students [?]
There're plushies at the store I work at that look somewhat like Duo, I've been meaning to take pictures.
All, no one is going to bat an eye at one commission, however, if someone was making dozens of commissions off one character, or mass producing it, then someone would get angry.
I want one too, but how? I have decided to crochet just one, just for me. No one can complain about copyright if he stays by my side, blinking wisely, spurring me onward, doing his little tap dance every now and then, can they? He will be my little green buddy that only my yellow budgie and I will know about!
Yes I have mine! No pattern needed. This is what I did: very simple basic crochet in green rug wool (could use any yarn that looks good and could of course be knitted). Roughly longish rectangular shape. Folded, stitched and stuffed fat. Yellow / orange beak & feet (to sort of match yellow budgie). The eyes are big black beads stitched on. So far he only has a rope scarf with green & yellow stripes but intend to add to his wardrobe with not sure what yet...? Daft expression :) Good luck! Edit: forgot to mention his wings which are crocheted flat triangle shapes sewn on at the top, rest hanging free for him to flap when he feels like it.
Physical items cost money, the only (cost effective) method of using lingots for these items would be - Coupons/discounts - Buying designs that you can then put on t-shirts (or posters or whatever) - Plushie pattern so you can buy the material to make your own Duo plushie (example: https://www.google.com/search?q=plushie+patterns&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=2xhFVYbQBojCggS65oEw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg&biw=1777&bih=861&dpr=0.9)
if anybody's wondering where you can get one, the only way you can get one is joining duolingo's facebook live events, all you have to do is send them your duolingo username in the live chat, a winner will be chosen at random every week, the winner will be sent an email and after you put in your address, it will take around 2-4 weeks to arrive! PS, if you cant find the email, check the spam box, that happend to me!
