Another artist we were finally able to catch up with at ToyCon over the weekend (however brief!), the lovely Penny Taylor of Taylored Curiosities brought along a mesmerising display of aroma-plush, one-off mini sculpts, resins (including a cheeky proto of a forthcoming collab with Alto!), and of course, the hotly tipped Giant Monster Embryo customs.

Head over here for a closer look, and stay tuned for more news on ‘that’ Alto collab soon!

“Fenegrygs are magickal creatures that inhabit our world, but in a different dimension. You’ll only see them when they choose to let you. I think there is a dance you can do to tempt them to show themselves, but I forget how it goes…”

Coming in 2 different sizes, the smaller 3.5″ and the larger 8.5″, the figures feature a mixture of hand sewn and cast pieces, each filled with a super-soft stuffing.
