These little Batlings are from the caverns of Tomodachi Island AKA Emelie Jensen. We have been keeping tabs on Emelie’s Little batlings since she’s been posting work in progress shots on her Instagram feed, we have been anxious to see the finished results and boy it’s worth the wait. From the design to the each of 4 different Batlings expressions are fantastic. We love how Emelie has repositioned and sculpted the hands plus not forgetting those big ears!
“The little Batlings live in the deep caverns of Tomodachi Island. Funny enough these little creatures are very scared of the dark. This has resulted in the Caverns being one of the brightest places on Tomodachi Island. They have decorated the caverns with bright fairy-lights in all the colors of the rainbow. Their furs are naturally dark and quite dull but they have sorted this out themselves as well by painting each other in various colors and patterns. “Dark” is just something they don’t want to know about, so they pretend that it does not exist at all.”
From the photos it looks like Emilie has been toying around with an air bush with that well refined finish. Right heres the good news, these will be available from tomodachiisland.bigcartel.com on Monday evening at 9.00 PM BST, the bad news their are only 4!
This is Loki. He is sleepy most of the time and he absolutely loves stars, however he is terrified of the dark. It’s a bit tricky as you can only see the stars when it’s dark so some of the creatures of Tomodachi Island has come to Lokis rescue and collected fallen stars for him so that he can enjoy the things he love the most without having to venture out in the scary darkness outside of the caverns.

This is Pellie. She might be one of the sweetest little creatures that you can find in the caverns. Always spreading love around her wherever she goes. Of course she is obsessed with anything heart shaped and sparkly. Her most favorite thing to do is to hug and snuggle.

Little Fioline. Constantly running in and out of the caverns to collect all the beautiful flowers she can carry. In fact it is probablt time for a little clean out soon, as the flowers have almost taken over the caverns. The other Batlings love treasure and bling, but not Fioline. She prefers to fall asleep on a bed of flowers every night.

Last but not least, Guster of course. Who can forget about Guster. Let’s just say he’s pretty loud. Always high on sugar and his laughter can be heard echoing through the caverns. He likes to play pranks on the Owlings that live and guard the treasures in the caverns. He sure is a prankster, the little devil.
