Miss Monster sells her here, and describes her thusly:

This is my friend Bramble. She’s a little monster but is super sweet and curious. Bramble loves Altoids and coffee.

This doll is one of a kind and handmade. Her face/claws/horns are cast in plastic, hand painted and coated with several layers of protective clear varnish. The fur is faux, very soft with a stuffed floppy style body. Glass eyes with hand shaped wool hair pieces.

    Been following her on dA for a while now. MissMonster sells lots of different stuff along those lines, though that’s the first big stuffed animal kind of thing that I can recall. She makes some tentacle-branded stuff that would be perfect for PZ.
