Dances with Roadrunners is a coyote in Crow fancy dancer regalia of handmade feather bustle, bone-pipe breastplate, synthetic hair roach. He is an 18 inch tall jointed doll of synthetic plush. Special order only.

Over the years we've made several Native American (or Indian) critters, usually when an idea sprang into our minds. Warren saw some Seminole quilting in a sewing magazine (say this fast five times!) and the result was a Seminole panther. A spare fox morph and two days until the convention produced Guards the Grapes, a Mohawk fox. The original inspiration for Dances with Roadrunners was an Alicia Austin print of a fancy-dancer coyote. We made ours a Crow fancy dancer, complete with hairpipe breatsplate, hair roach, and feather bustles. The feather bustles are quite time-consuming, since each feather has to be prepared with fluffs and a red thread before it's fastened to the base. And there's always quite a few feathers.

Candy wanted to make a Nez Perce appaloosa, so Jackson Palouse emerged. He really did look quite a lot like Chief Joseph, too. Woolly Boy the Navajo sheep was one of the results of Candy's punning. So was Minnebaabaa the Hopi sheep. Shooting Bull the Rio Grande buffalo dancer was quite unusual. Punning Bear the Zuni has people fetishes on his necklace. Sacagaweasel wore a "buckskin" outfit made of ultrasuede. Johnny Ringtail was a ringtail cat dressed as a Koshare clown, since clown dancers traditionally have stripes. A buxom lynx became Sioux Kitty. If you're interested in a recreation of one of these figures, or some other Native American character, drop us a note and we'll see what we can make for you.

We research the clothes worn by the various tribes and try to be reasonably accurate. Most of the critters wear actual jewelry or other artifacts as well, and we're always searching for more.

Stuffe & Nonsense Stuffemal plush dolls and animal character figures are original soft sculpture designs, individually hand crafted in California by the Stuffe Staff. Due to medical issues and other priorities we no longer make plush toys and have left the web images live just for reference. If you already have one of our creations, we hope you treasure it. Sorry, but we do not know of anyone doing similar work.

Construction and material details vary depending on our design goals for the character involved and the materials on hand. The plush figures are constructed of mohair, wool, alpaca or high-quality synthetic faux fur. Clothing and costume are also hand-made by Stuffe & Nonsense; jewelry and props are from diverse sources. Stuffe & Nonsense Stuffemals often use glass eyes or small parts and are not suitable for young children.
