Mortal Plush: I am not your toy

A friend of mine got accepted to be part of this little bit scary/little bit cute/all awesome art show. It's called "Mortal Plush: I am not your toy" and it is a group exhibit of "emotional plush art" that's going to take place in National Harbor, Maryland: July 11th - August 11th. I don't think I'll be able to go, but I took a trip through the flickr group just to check out the artists' submissions. I don't know who got accepted, but here are just some of the plushes (or is it plushies?) that appealed to me.

"I Can't Believe You're My Sister" by Silent Orchid
(Can't you sense her annoyance? The hand on hip nails it.)

"Pip N Squeek" by Kit Lane
(Sweet fuzziness. I love the pink thread.)

"Sad and uber angry Mr. Toastee" by Yummy Pancake
(I would go through these feelings too. If I were toast.)

"old lady 011" by Wool & Water
(Does anyone remember Madame, the sassy old lady puppet from the 80s? This girl totally reminds me of that girl - without the rhinestones, of course.)

"Lil Octopus in Hand" by Loopy Dolls
(I get the same sense of sweet strangeness that I get from that doll head toy in "Toy Story.")

"Needle Felted Buddies" by feltalive
(Just a pair of red-headed friends.)

"Squirrely Pin" by VenaCavaCraft
(Just some tiny, fuzzy love with some darn careful stitching too.)
