I've had dreams about obtaining dolls like these, and now it's finally real! Large scale Nidorina and Nidorino plushies! The bad news is, these aren't official and are Asian bootlegs. However, the good news is, if you don't care about how official something is, these aren't too hard to obtain so long as you're able to buy online, and they're cute and huggable so they have that going for them, too. It's a take what you can get situation, but I can't imagine a better Nidorino plushie, specifically.
Plush of Charlotte aka Seven. The flash did make her mouth look a little different, though. Picture taken from my balcony.
This is a Nidorina plush that I made. Took me two days of constant, hard work.
This is my custom Nidorina plush!
First, I did NOT make this. However, I do now own it from a trade I did with Tara Billinger a.k.a. nosleepjinx on DA. However, she is modeled after a Nidorina Pokedoll figure that I made. As the image says, she is 6 inches tall, made of soft, minky fabric, and has embroidered features. I love her so much and she tags along with me just about everywhere ;D
The somber experiment has finally arrived! The deadpan look and the hair make this doll cute. My sister has one as well, but so do a few others around the world. Just how many times was Seven duplicated? World chaos is afoot.
The second chibi Nidorina plushie I made. She's slightly wider than the other dolls, but this is intentional as she's slightly wider than most Nidorina anyhow. Being the second doll, I had figured the patterns to use out by now. The picture was taken in our flower "garden", some being real and others aesthetic filler.
I get what I want... when I make it, that is. The first of the chibi plushies. This isn't the first doll I've ever made, but the first with a sheer amount of details. Made from a velour blend and felt, with a polyester bow. She stands about 8 inches tall. Being the first doll, there was still some kinks to work out for later dolls.
The chibi series dolls are based from the Chibi-Chibi Nido dolls of Crane Crazy, although the eyes are more like Riri's. My sister arranged the doll and took the pictures. That explains why it looks better.
I had this made years ago, but I never used it and forgot about it. It's actually a good thing I never used it, considering I busted up that 3DS anyway. But I bet they'd look cool, though. They look pretty cool right here, even.
The design is mine, but I had someone else print it off. He used to be good, but the last time I used him (for the 2017 contest) he vastly inflated his prices... and then sent me versions with poorer quality at that, so I can't recommend him, unfortunately (if he's still doing it at all).
I also have one in black. View post to see that one, too.
One of these creatures has a different name than the rest. Can you guess who that is? A rather small potatoes collection of the Nidorina collectables I have, fan created and mass produced. I don't have access to all of my stuff, just what's on hand. For example, I'm missing official things like the more recent keychains and the Bandai Battle figure to the crafty things like the clay Mrs. Nidorina and the Nidorina pin I made for Creative Worlds waaaay way back. Let it never be said that I didn't make it clear who my favorite Pokemon is. As for what's next, hard to say given the limits of Nidorina merch that doesn't completely suck and isn't worth the shipping costs, but I could use a new figurine because the current one is very old and getting grimy. I also know I'm missing the evolutionary line set (which fortunately, AB has still been provided a pic of), but don't know where to obtain that, partially because I'm not making the effort to look. On the fan side, I would love newer character dolls. Larger and only kind of super deformed. I don't know who's gonna make these wonderful dolls but it's gotta happen before I end this site (heck I'd get the bootleggers on it if they were taking design submissions and didn't charge me for 1,000 ^^;). As for the current ones, the eyes on Nidorina and her mirror world counterpart have bleached to orange due to time, but if that's the worst of it, it's no big deal. Still precious things to have considering.
