Gallery Folders

[UPDATE] 4.10.14

When you submit something, please make sure its going to the right folder. If your work falls under two different folders [ie: an amigurumi plush of Doctor Who can fall under both the amigurumi folder and Movies TV Folder, go with the folder you think it fits with best. If you're really not sure, you're always welcomed to note the group with questions. The only exception to this are ALL MLP AND POKEMON PLUSH, they each have their own folder. Any plush MLP plush, whether its a Doctor Hooves pony or made with amigurumi go into the MLP Inspired folder. And all Pokemon plush, whether amigurumi or otherwise, go into the Pokemon Plush folder.

The featured folder is closed to all members. Deviations in the featured folder are chosen by admin to showcase the best of the best from our group members.

General Rules
:bulletblack: A limit's been put on all the folders. Each member can only submit 5 entries a week now.  
:bulletblack: We only allow photos of actual plush work. NO DRAWINGS of plushies, even if they're concept sketches or designs.
:bulletblack: All tutorials and folders must be submitted our favorites section! They do not go into any of the gallery folders!
+Dont know how to suggest a favorite? Please note the group!

:bulletblack: All work submitted will be reviewed by admin to make sure it goes into a matching folder.

Here are the folders~!

:bulletblue: Movies TV
This will house anything from movies and tv shows whether its animated or not. This includes western cartoons and animated movies like Disney and Dreamworks. This also includes plushies of actors, singers and other celebrities.

:bulletblue: Anime Manga Plushies
Since there's an overwhelming amount of anime work, I had to give it its own folder. Anything from any form of Japanese animation or manga will go here. This also plush of fan made characters. This does not include any Pokemon plush.

:bulletblue: Animals Fantasy Creatures
All animal plushies, along with dinosaurs, dragons and unicorns. As long as its not from any specific game or show will go here.

:bulletblue: Video Games
I think this one is pretty easy to understand. Even if its from games that have an anime style, such as Kingdom Hearts. If its from any video game, it goes here my friends. Characters or objects from within actual games as well of plush of actual game consoles or controllers. Excluding all Pokemon plush.

:bulletblue: Amigurumi
Because of its distinct style, amigurumi get their own folder. If anything is amigurumi but also falls under another folder, please submit to the amigurumi folder first unless you feel strongly otherwise.

:bulletblue: Plushie Accessories Objects
Any kind of plush accessory that is made for people or for plushies. So things like hats and bags go here. As well as plush objects that are NOT food. This excludes all Pokemon and MLP related plush.

:bulletblue: Food
Who doesnt love food? Food gets its own folder cause there is a large number of food plush out there. This pretty much explains itself. So whether its happy smiling food or just delicious looking, it all goes here.

:bulletblue: Books Comics
Another folder for fan plush of characters from books, novels and comics. Do not submit characters from an manga to this folder, they have their own folder along side anime. Not sure if you're super hero plush go here or in movies? Pick the folder you think fits best.

:bulletblue: Original Plush
All plush of original characters will go here as well as original artist dolls.. So any plush that are entirely your own original design. Any plush of fan characters will also be allowed in this folder

:bulletblue: MLP Inspired
The newly added especially made for any My Little Pony related plush. Whether it be fan plush of characters from the show, original MLP characters or characters from other fandoms in MLP form, they all belong in this folder. Any MLP related plush not submitted to this folder will be automatically declined.

:bulletblue: Pokemon Plush
There is just so much beautiful pokemon related plush out there, it had to get its own folder. Any and all plush Pokemon related must go to this folder. If its plush of pokemon, trainers or accessories like pokemon beanies. It all goes here. Any Pokemon related plush not submitted to this folder will be automatically declined.

:bulletblue: Misc
Last but not least. If you have a plushie that doesnt match any of the folders, or you really just arent sure where it should go. Put them here. If the admin feel that they belong in a specific folder, we'll move them for you.

To submit any tutorials or patterns, you must suggest them as favorites instead. In our favorites section we have folders for each. If you dont know how to suggest a favorite, please note the group and we'll be happy to show you how.
If you really cant figure it out you can note the group with a link to your pattern/tutorial and one of the admin will suggest it for you.

:bulletgreen: Tutorials
The tutorials folder is located in the favorites. We accept any kind of sewing tutorials! To submit to these folder just go to the group's favorites gallery and click "suggest a favorite". When the little box pops up there should be an option then of what folder to submit to.

:bulletgreen: Patterns
Is also in the favorites and we'll take any patterns for any kind of plush. Follow the instructions above if you dont know how to submit to the favorites.

If you have an questions feel free to comment below or note the group!

I am a new plushie maker. I have been gearing at pet toys in felt but will make custom orders any size and any fabric you desire.

I'm searching for customers in every corner of deviantart I can (my only other option is to ask the birds in the cornfield.) Some are as low as $6 and I have a deal on free plushies. Please check it out before I'm desperate enough to ask the cornfield birds. They're not good listeners.
Is there anyone here who would be willing to make me a Red Punster plush from Hamtaro?
If you are willing to, please send me a note.
