Tootastic lil :mastodon: mascot for y'all! Plushie by @doomyflo & fun by me. Invite your friends to joinMastodon.org

Next post this weekend will include their lil outfit!
:mastoart:

:make_like_edmonia: Our future arting mascot. ...minimally invasive surgery being conducted atm to bring my plushy by @doomyflo to life!
It requires clean aluminum armature wire w one sharpened end (any brick wall will do). This lil one will have 3 wires to provide 5 degrees of freedom DoF + the snout! A poorly done stop motion animation will soon follow! :mastoart:

I temporarily changed the default theme to the light theme just to show it exists - you can switch it via:
mastodon.art/settings/preferen

*I'll switch it back to default dark later today.
