Kit the Fox Spirit

Kit is a baby fox spirit that wanders through forested areas along the northern border between the U.S. and Canada.

He likes to switch between glowing blue and white, depending on his mood and how cold he’s feeling! Because he’s so young, he often forgets to pace his gliding, and is often dizzy as a result. This is why he has a permanently cross-eyed look.

Process: I chose to put together a series circuit and wrap it around a frame. Within the coils, the plushy is stuffed regularly, such that it can still be soft. The core (as pictured below right), which helped keep the body soft yet improved upon light that was too focused. I ended up having to add both ping pong balls and tulle to make the light diffuse in the way that I was hoping.
