Custom Kid Icarus plushie: Chibi-style!

If you’re still reeling in shock over the supposed Kid Icarus concept art that has been floating around the net lately, this sweet version of Kid Icarus may make you feel that all is right with the world again, if only for a few moments. He was created by request by DeviantArt user violetlunchell, who apparently is quite skilled at making cute things.

Who knows if she would be willing to make more of these, but any Japanophile would probably enjoy her work anyway (if you like Japanese music, check out her Kaoru plushie from the band Dir En Grey. Too cute!!) If you desperately want one of your own, you can always try emailing her … sometimes, desperate pleading really does work in your favor.

[Thanks, Adam!]
