Having pop culture inspired art hanging on your walls is wonderful. Having a pop culture inspired plush or doll you can snuggle? It might be better. I definitely find Diane Boucher's handmade crochet dolls huggable and couldn't resist featuring them in Fan Art Friday. She's been making her adorable dolls for three years. She started crafting the plushes as a hobby, but it's become a full time job. Diane pulls inspiration from all sorts of films, comics, and games—including Star Wars. Look at BB-8:
I'm guessing a lot of you would be absolutely fine with having a lil' Jareth from Labyrinth to cuddle at night.
Take a trip to the gallery below to see more of Diane's work. You'll find Groot and Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, a cookie-eating Snorlax, and more. If you'd like to place an order for a doll of your very own, you can do so at Diane's Etsy shop. Visit her Instagram feed to see everything she's currently working on. And hey, if you're going to Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con in June, you can buy dolls from her in person.
Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I'd like to highlight what you do. If you're interested in being featured in a future edition of Fan Art Friday, get in touch with me at [email protected] with examples of your work. If you're not an artist, feel free to email me with recommendations for Fan Art Friday!
