The Glowing Leaf Tribe – Gorudo & Gin by Tomodachi Island

Emelie Jensen AKA Tomodachi Island has started the ball rolling and back on the custom vinyl toy game for 2016. Preparing for ToyCon UK 2016 and commissions. Gorudo & Gin from Emlie’s The Glowing Leaf Tribe series will be the last art collectable, store release for a little while. Gorudo & Gin are custom Nakanari’s Spiki platform. Along with a enchanting story to go with Gorudo & Gin, Emelie once again shows whats to come in 2016.  Gorudo & Gin both have beautiful unique pattern of stripes and braided fur on Gin which is a nice touch, we’ve never seen on a Tomodachi Island custom before. We think it works!


“The Golden Leaf Tribe persists of a group of fox like creatures and is located deep in the Whispering woods. Some say that these creatures guard the very heart of Tomodachi Island, in the shape of a golden glowing leaf. However no one knows for sure as nobody will get through the force barrier that the tribe have created around the heart. They are gentle creatures, but they have sworn to always protect whatever it is that they protect, with their lives.
You often hear their hymns echoing through the forest and it brings calm to all who live within the Whispering Woods.”

“This is Gorudo. Not much is known about him as he along with the rest of the tribe tend to keep to themselves. All we know really is that he paints his body in different golden leaf patterns and that his hymn is one of the most beautiful we’ve ever heard.”

Gorudo sits on a 4″ Nakanari Spiki platform. He’s been airbrushed with acrylics and carefully finished with a fine brush. He’s got fine golden touches on the back of his head and down his back.

“This is Gin. Just like Gorudo there is little we know about her. All we know is what we’ve seen from a far and on pictures. She seems to be very obsessed with her hair and she likes to decorate it with silver streaks. In general the members of the tribe seem to be very fond of metals like silver and gold.”

“I’ve worked very hard on both of these little fox creatures and spend many many hours on sculpting their features and especially the hair on both of them. They will be the last toys for a little while besides from a few commissions that I still have to finish. I need to focus on my stock for ToyCon UK now and I can’t wait to get started. I’ve got allot of work to do, and I hope I will be able to pull it off. I am extremely excited about going to ToyCon UK and I want everything to be perfect!”
