Day Four of 11 Days of Corduroy - "Waling" Banshee by Plushroom Soup for Corduroy Appreciation Club

The "Waling" Banshee and her terrifying cries.
The date that most closely resembles corduroy, 11|11|11 has come upon us, and to commemorate this momentous date the Plush Team has teamed up with the Corduroy Appreciation Club. A collection of 11 corduroy-inspired plush created by 11 members of the Plush Team has resulted. These pieces will be displayed at the grand meeting celebrating all things corduroy at the Desmond Tutu Center in Manhattan on this most auspicious date. These pieces will become available to the public to celebrate this every man's fabric in their own private collections this Thursday, November 10th.  They will be listed in PlushTeam's etsy shop:

About the Club:
The Corduroy Appreciation Club is a social club which wishes to cultivate good fellowship by the advancement of Corduroy awareness, understanding, celebration and commemoration of the fabric and all related items. Club events are held on dates which resemble Corduroy. Explore the club and all its wonders further at

All Hail the Wale!!!

"Waling" Banshee

According to Irish folklore, banshees are fairy women (or ghosts of women who died, commonly in childbirth) who wail when death is nigh. Their wails are most often heard at night near woods.

Fingers curled distraughtly as the banshee shrieks her death call.
The "Waling" banshee is dressed in baby corduroy, or pinwale, for a play on the word "wailing." Her tattered dress is accented with ribbon and lace, and her split dagged sleeves feature a silk blend lining. Her body is made of 100% wool felt, and her hair is mohair locks needle-felted into place. Her arms and fingers are wired and jointed for full range of motion. She comes with a doll stand and measures approximately 14 inches (25 cm) tall.

Jessica Puckett, the creature creator behind Plushroom Soup, sees no reason why plush can't be a little strange, like most of us. And even though she wears corduroy at least twice per week, this is the first time she's dressed a plushie in wale. It will not be the last.  Find more of her work at
