Can't get enough of Animal Crossing: New Leaf? These pillows should be right up your alley ...

I've only just gotten around to thinking about the interior of my Animal Crossing: New Leaf homes, so I'm not as educated as I should be about things like customizing furniture and other household items (although I have dabbled in it a tiny bit).

As such, I've yet to make--or even encounter in someone else's town, really--the kind of customized crafts that inspired Australian game-design student Bilvy to make the fabulous throw pillows seen below (and here):



Blathers, Chief, Lolly and Punchy aren't the only Animal Crossing characters Bilvy's immortalized in her pillows, by the way. Bob, K.K. Slider, Octavian, Stitches, Tangy and Wolfgang are included among the first batch--being sold at society6.com/bilvyy/pillows for $20 each--as well.

Although I initially was a bit disappointed not to find Snake, Bluebear or Barold (my current favorite Animal Crossing villager) pillows, it appears Bilvy is willing to take requests, so maybe I should take her up on that offer sometime soon?

Bilvy also maintains an New Leaf-focused tumblr, willgrayhound. tumblr.com, and an art blog that's intriguingly titled "there is no gender in jumperland," by the way, so if you like what she did with the cushion designs seen above, you might want to give them a look, too.

This is so great! I might have to request Kody.

I always forget that you're best buds with Kody. I'm pretty sure I've told you this before, but I've NEVER had Kody as a villager in any of my AC games. Actually, there are a lot of villagers I've never had in my AC games. Boo. Guess this means I need to play more AC, eh? ;)

hahaha awwww , I started with Punchy and he was pretty much my "BF" of the town. then Chief moved in and gave us the serious/mature tone we needed.

These are dang cute

Oh, yeah, I like Punchy a lot, too, Robert. I've had him in pretty much every AC game I've played, now that I think about it. Except New Leaf, that is. Maybe eventually?

Oh my god I neeeeed a Blathers pillow! I hope they make even more designs!

Well, Riven, the artist said she's willing to take requests, so I'd suggest taking her up on that offer! Which animal would you like to see immortalized on a pillow, by the way?

Please make an Erik pillow! :D

I actually had to look up Erik, Becca, as I'd never seen him before. Now that I know what he looks like, though, I have to agree with you! Anyway, hopefully Bilvy will make one at some point--or you could always contact her directly and ask her to make one.
