Well, these caught our attention immediately upon waking up this fine morning, not just because they are produced by some of our favourite peoples, but because they are so damn CUTE!!! The new Fantasia Monster Fluffy by Instinctoy x Horrible Adorables was revealed this morning and set us scrambling for more details on how to obtain this absolute beaut!
As you’ll see below from the pics below, Horrible Adorables are painstakingly assembling each one of these Monster Fluffy, a mighty task for a mighty duo! As there will be 100 of these, this is going to take some time! February 2021 in fact, is the scheduled production completion date for these. However, the pre-order lottery for these will start next week on October 23rd through to 25th October, where you will need to enter the Instinctoy lottery on their site HERE. Winners will be chosen & notified on 30th October and will have until 5th November to pay the 10000yen non-refundable deposit (about £74). The remaining 25000yen (about £184) will be requested at the time of shipping next year.
Check out what Instinctoy had to say about this project with Horrible Adorables below…
Following HORRIBLE ADORABLES’ invitation to collaborate, HORRIBLE ADORABLES liked INSTINCTOY’s latest original character Monster Fluffy. We also felt that the form of Monster Fluffy would be very compatible with HORRIBLE ADORABLES’ stylizing. With this in mind, we were able to proceed with the project.
HORRIBLE ADORABLES was able to produce a mold by modifying the original 3D prototype data of INSTINCTOY’s Monster Fluffy, and duplicate the parts using resin and rigid foam as the base of the main body.
After some discussion, the colorful theme “Fantasia” was decided upon to be the color palette.
After calculation, the artist will affix each piece of fabric on the main body with the designed arrangement and color scheme.
Approximately 530 felt pieces are arranged on the body by the artists’ skilled craftsmanship.
The vividly colorful design is arranged to wrap around the whole body, beautifully expressing HORRIBLE ADORABLES’ artistic view of Monster Fluffy’s coat.
Although it looks simple, the three-dimensional appearance of the profile is completely reproduced, and both arms can be moved within the same range of movement as the INSTINCTOY soft vinyl version of Monster Fluffy.
The pink flock applied on both hands and feet is also something to behold. The claws and fangs are made from resin, while rigid foam is used to make the body. The figure also has 18mm diameter doll eyes. Using four different materials, the expression of the figure is achieved.
This Monster Fluffy is about 173mm in total height and is one size larger than the regular soft vinyl version (total height about 140mm).Instinctoy, October 2020
