Day Nine of 11 Days of Corduroy - The Squid and the Wale by Plushinator for Corduroy Appreciation Club

Squid and the Wale
Appropriately enough, the film Squid and the Whale was filmed in Brooklyn, birthplace of the CAC
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:

All Hail the Wale!!!

Amid the pod of whales we find a shining star, or rather, squid.  As everyone knows, the whale is the mascot of the Corduroy Appreciation Club, but the cephalapod is equally worthy of your adoration, sporting his baby wale in a most glorious combination of plum and pink.  Sometimes it really is preferable to stand out from the crowd, isn't it?

Move over whales, cephalapods love corduroy, too.
The squid measures 7"x10"x20" inches, including the tentacles, or 17.5x25x50 cm.  He is created from baby wale corduroy and is adorned with sparkly buttons eyes.  He is NOT intended for children under the age of three.
About the artist:
Lana Crooks loves the antique, the creepy, the cute and the mysterious. She began her artistic life as an illustrator, but became a sculptor of fabrics and found objects. She constructs all kinds of creatures (commonly those from the deepest oceans, but even the ones from under your bed).  Explore more of her work at
