Mini Mimic Octopus by FamiliarOddlings Mini Mimic Octopus by FamiliarOddlings
Continuing my experiments with tiny needle-felting. The stripes on this guy are done with a Copic marker. Arms are dabbed with Mod Podge to keep shape.

I love the mimic octopus! I've been longing to make one ever since I finished my first blue-ringed octopus. They're fascinating and have awesome eyebrows! :D I'm determined to eventually make a full sized one with pipe cleaner armature so it can be posed in all those classic mimic poses. This tiny one will have to do for the meantime.

I have about a dozen smart-alick quips for this image, but I can't pick one! And I can't spell "smart-aleck" either!

Awww <3 This little guy is adorable too. I love the arms on this one and those awesome eyebrows!! The markings look great and I love how wispy these tiny ones come out looking. I so want to pet this one and feel his fibery fuzziness.:blackrose:
