Other: Custom/Unofficial Items  


This is a very specific section, which features a home for anything custom made I've had done for the series. Since they are classed as an unofficial item, anything I have in my collection which is fanmade outside of doujinshi live here. For the most part, this section will house any custom sculptures or plush I've had made, and I will try to segregate everything by item type, like the other official items sections. Since most of these items are one of a kind, I won't be as pedantic about trying to group order them by date of creation (just year made instead) since it's easier to keep track that way.

If you'd like to find a specific item quickly, please utilise the code issued by the item's name in the index by searching for it with ctrl+f in your browser.

Mr. Crow Custom Plush [CU01]
Mr. Crow Bell Plush [CU02]
Alex Wesker Art Print signed by Elaine Hendrix [CU03]


Title: Mr. Crow Custom Plush (「ミスター・カラス」 手作りぬいぐるみ) [CU01]
Artist: Junoluver
Year Made: 2011

Information:
This little guy is such a darling custom plush. A combination of right place, right time, and an urge to get a custom done. Mr. Crow is modelled, of course, on the zombified crows from the franchise. Crows have been in pretty much every version of the game in some way, shape, or form. I still think I love their grand spook entrance in Bio2 the most, and the way they'd all sit there and eyeball you in the painting puzzle room of the Spencer Mansion while crooning and cawing was pretty impacting when I first played.

He even comes with a severed arm, like the infamous Bio2 artwork has! A brilliant, beautiful custom which I will forever cherish.




Title: Mr. Crow Bell Plush (「ミスター・カラス」 鈴なりB.O.W. ぬいぐるみ) [CU02]
Artist: Norkia
Year Made: 2013

Information:
Bell plush, known as suzunari plush in Japan, were a neat line of limited plush made by Banpresto in 1997 that featured almost all of the original 151 Pokemon in a simplified chibi form, a hang string, and a little bell. I've always really loved these kinds of plush, and a fair few custom artists began doing their own bell plush of later generation Pokemon. solbraves easily has some of the best out there -- true to the classic style, even with the original kind of crushed pane fabric, and meticulous detail work. I knew that I wanted to get a bell plush Mr. Crow for sure, and when a slot opened I snagged it.

Being a bell plush this Mr. Crow custom stands just over an inch tall, and has stiff felt wings, feet, and tail, felt eyes with hand painted details, black crushed pane for his body, and grey crushed pane for his beak. He also has a few dry brushed splotches of blood detailed delicately over his body to slam dunk the character detail down to perfection. The finishing touch and signature of this plush is the bright red bell atop his head.

Title: Alex Wesker Art Print signed by Elaine Hendrix (「アレックス・ウェスカー」アートワークのエレイン・ヘンドリクスサイン入り) [CU03]
Artist: Myself
Year Made: 2015

Information:
Revelations 2 is a game that has essentially left a very major impact on my life, and it really pulled me through (and continues to do so) a very rough time with my mental and physical health. I was overjoyed when a very good friend of mine found out that Elaine Hendrix was indeed the face model and mo-cap actress of Alex Wesker in this new instalment to the series, announced by herself once the game was finally out, and her announcement came with a contest: to draw fan-art of Alex Wesker.

Of course I entered -- I was inspired, very enamoured with the character, and so I wanted to do my best to immortalise Elaine as Alex in my own style! (You can see an upload of the art here + pixiv.)

While there were only three winners of the grand prize, which was a signed copy of Revelations 2 from Elaine herself, she asked all entrants to send her their address so she could send them something special for participating.

I didn't win, but this special surprise is just as good as winning to me, honestly. I'm incredibly honoured that the Alex herself approves of this art!

A print I will for sure be framing in due time.
