Object of geek desire: a lovable, huggable Sephiroth pillow

For most Final Fantasy fans, it's hard to top FFVII's Sephiroth as the biggest billy badass of the series to date.

Maybe it's his imposingly long katana, black trench coat, or creepy, unresolved mommy issues - but from the very second he enters the story of FFVII, it's clear that Sephiroth is not one to be fucked with.

It's also clear that he would probably mellow out a lot if he just got a nice, long hug.  Thanks to this week's Object of Geek Desire, you can do just that... and you'll probably walk away alive and un-impaled.


Created by crafty Etsy artist startrails, the Cuddly Final Fantasy Pillow -- Sephiroth is as adorable as it is oddly proportioned.

Crafted from fleece, felt, and love, this adorable little sociopath is meant "to bring you smiles" which is a pleasant change from his persona in Final Fantasy VII which sought to bring a giant fucking meteor down on your head.

The overstuffed Sephiroth Pillow measures about 16" x 16" and would make for a great accent on a gaming room futon or your bedside table (if you're into that sort of thing).  Better yet, it won't cost you a lung and your Holy Materia - this adorable little guy has a list price of $30 plus $8.50 shipping.

startrails also has a disarmingly cute pillow versions of  Squall Leonheart, Ron Weasley, and most of The Avengers for sale in her shop along with many other cute and geeky creations... so if you're looking for a cute and geeky pillow - and let's face it, who isn't? - be sure to check out her wares.
