The Original Robin the Plushie by VesteNotus The Original Robin the Plushie by VesteNotus
Finished the exact same time as Kid Flash ([link]).

This Robin was commissioned by :iconcaramelapple: *CaramelApple. As per her request, Robin's mask is removeable.
The cape, unlike the cape on the TTF Robin ([link]), does not come off. I actually kinda prefer it that way. The TTF Robin looks cool in a souped-up jumpsuit and no cape. The Original Robin does not. He just looks dumb without a cape. Evidently, the cape is critical.

I am pleased with this. That's all I'm gonna say.
I didn't go to crazy with the photos I put up... but let me just say this: somewhere on my computer are enough RobinX____ to kill a fangirl.
As was the case with Kid Flash, I was really tired during the photo shoot (they had a joint photoshoot, actually), so I got pretty punchy with the whole process.

Thank you CaramelApple for waiting so long! I will send these plushies out to you asap!

well, at the time, it must have taken somewhere between 8 and 12 hours! But that's because this fella was entirely hand-sewn (and no glue guns either).
Nowadays, it would only take me 2, maybe 3 hours tops to remake this plushie.

So what's he made from? Felt?

He's actually made from fleece and suede (suede for his skin). Felt is made from wool, but tends to fall apart at the seams more readily than fleece. Although fleece and suede are more expensive, their durability and cuddliness make it a wonderful improvement over felt

So how much did it cost all together?

cost to make or how much did I sell it for?
The suede I get costs anywhere from $3-10 per yard while the fleece costs between $3-6 per yard.
In addition, the fabric transfer paper I used for the eyes cost about $10 per 3 sheets and the Velcro about $5 per pack. Making plushies requires a lot of up-front payment before I can actually start making any form of a profit (though measly) on what I sell.
