We all have those days where we feel self-conscious and don't feel like we really want anyone to see us.
Well, Self-conscious has decided that today is a 'stay under the blanket' kind of day. Tell Self-conscious your concerns and let them deal with it all for you, while you go out and hold your head high.
A 10cm plush toy made of super soft velboa fabric, stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing and scented with natural ginger (Ginger is a heating ayurvedic herb that energizes the body and functions as an anti-depressant).
Safety eyes and materials comply with CE regulations. Blanket is removable.
BACK the SHI-SHI KICKSTARTER HERE: http://kck.st/2XCJMDH
This is a Kickstarter to fund the production of Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian figures in PVC mini figure format, 4" sofubi soft vinyl format and deluxe 6" solid resin format!
You are guaranteed to receive your pledge because the campaign is overfunded and I am personally managing the production of all these toys!
Don't sleep, campaign ends Friday! Click here to see all the sweet rewards!
‘The Feelings’ are a set of characters that I started making back in 2009. Worry was the first and was soon joined by a whole host of emotion monsters. Each one is the personification of the mental health concern that they represent. They are talismans to ease your struggle and to remind you that you are not alone. Worry was the first kickstarted plush back in 2016 and was a huge success!
Last year saw some of the Feelings made in to silver charm beads via Ohm and now I am going to bring Self-conscious to life as a scented plush doll.
Each one will be made from super soft fabric and stuffed with squishy stuffing and natural ginger. Ginger is known to boost confidence and mood. These dolls are aromatherapy dolls just like the Worry ones you know and love. I want to remove the stigma around mental health. It’s a personal journey that I’ve been on for 9 years through my art and I am going to keep on going with this as I don’t ever want anyone to feel alone in this world.
Not often that a toy Kickstarter hits its goal on the first day. The Shi-Shi Kickstarter did that and kept going! Bigshot is definitely 100% making all the beautiful mini figures, sofubis and resin figures in this Kickstarter. Tooling is already done so in a month Shi-Shis move straight into production.

^^ Antaeus, one of the 6 figures in the Run-a-Mucks series
Run-A-Mucks is a series of mini figures in the tradition of classics like M.U.S.C.L.E. or Monster in My Pocket. It is a set of 6 unique characters, each designed by a different artist, and sculpted by me, Bryan Fulk. Some of these are a bit more ambitious in design than your typical mini. This mostly means that I have allowed for more complex sculpting and molding than you might usually see in a straight forward 2-part molded mini figure. A couple of the characters are deeper and/or wider with more overall mass than average. Some characters have features smaller and thinner than you might normally expect and some will be molded in multiple parts to accommodate more complicated designs and more extreme angles than are typically possible in 2-part molding.
These extra allowances translate to a more costly molding and manufacturing process, so consider this a deluxe series of mini figures. These figures require about twice the amount of steel molds a traditional set of 6 minis would need and more overall volume of product in the actual casting of the toys. They will fit nicely with your mini figure collection in size and scope, but you will find extra detail or girth to some of these toys. They will be injection molded PVC to assure a consistent and quality product.
Available here on Kickstarter is the classic 'flesh' colorway and also a Kickstarter exclusive green colorway--the first in a ROYGBIV rainbow set.
