Dear Insane Children,
Everyone, say “Hello!” to “OCD Bunny” – inspired by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder. This design continues in the tradition of our Plushie Dreadfuls based on themes related to mental health. Many of you asked for an OCD Bunny as a follow-up to Anxiety Rabbit… so here’s where we start the creative process!
It’s Crowd Design Time!
Here are some design notes I sent to Jennifer…
1) ?The “excessive cleaning” ?idea is a great one. Further illustrate it by including scars, bloody marks, etc, on hands and legs – to indicate that he’s cleaned so much he’s stripped away skin.
?1a) Further to this we might include things related to cleaning: ?A little scrub brush; little white gloves (maybe he’s just “meat” ?under the gloves?); a little bottle of bleach; a face mask. ?
2) ?The watch idea is good – but we’ve always avoided shipping anything mechanical or that uses a battery. We simply *can’t* ship batteries. For a wind-up watch… we could do it but we’d need to stress that the mechanical watch is for appearances only – that if it stops (or is never) functioning mechanically, we DO NOT replace it.
?3) Should we address or include some nod to OCPD (vs. just OCD). From an online medical source: ?“People with OCPD may not see their characterological rigidity and need for perfection as problematic, despite its destructive effects on their relationships and well-being.” What could we include that would also address OCPD? ?A little book of rules? Being punctual – the little watch addresses this.
Now it’s YOUR TURN to add ideas to this design. What else would you like to see included in the character design or what’s included with this plush?
