Step One: Prototypes
Step Two: Mass Production!
At Wondercon, Chester proved himself worthy of his own stuffed doll. In spite of all my efforts, this little piggy seemed to be the real bread winner of the weekend. By 3pm on Saturday I was completely out of the papercraft Chesters and had lots of inquiries about making "actual toys" of the lovable little guy.
So here's our first step. In lieu of a lucrative licensing deal, wifey and I handmade two plush dolls of Chester last night :)
Our mission is to have a bunch of these ready for Stumptown Comics fest up in Portland next weekend and see if anyone likes them.
