Once upon a time there was an Artisan who saw the infamous ‘Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger Don’t give a shit’ video and fell in love.

Once upon a time there was an Artisan who saw the infamous ‘Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger Don’t give a shit’ with narration by Randall video and fell in love. For she always gave a shit too much as this concept was intriguing and became an anthem. Many years later a Lord from another land made a meme. Unlike other Honey Badger memes, this one rang truer. But it missed something so she consulted the Google Wizard and was gifted a cute Honey Badger plush. Then she asked again, and was granted an Emotional Support harness. But something was still missing. So she stitched a pair of protruding fangs. The badger’s face transformed. Then she made a key chain that said “Do not pet I’m working” attaching it to the harness. It was a grand day indeed. For the noble Honey Badger truly earned its namesake as an Emotional Support Animal with 0 Fucks to give.

With much excitement, she shared her new creation far and wide. Others oohed and awed and asked if she would assemble one for them? So she offered 20 and quickly they departed. Then she offered more and they too found forever homes. Then she brought them to a huge Medieval reenactment affair called Pennsic War, and they stormed the castle. Her creation continued to grow, bringing other tribes of plushie animals with it. She decided they should have personalized IDs to grant them passage with their human companions. Some wanted the original no fucks to give and others were good without it. Some were sent as gifts and some collected with wild abandon. Some were enhanced with wings or paint. Some needed harnesses enhancement so they fit, some needed extra stuffing or stitches as they would arrive neglected. But all happily found homes and took on their noble task.

To this day, these critters bring love, joy and much needed emotional support. Each one is assembled and enhanced by me giving that personal attention to detail that only comes from something made by hand. As an Artist, I understand and respect that creating something like this even if it is mostly assembly work still gives merit to masterminded skill. That the ideal alone is just as worthy.

Frequently asked questions
Who are you?

My name is Sandra SanTara and have been a Professional Artist for over 30 years. I am know for my Visionary, Fantasy and Wildlife 2-D artwork. My web site is www.windwolf.com and my main Etsy page is www.Etsy.com/shop/windwolfstudio I created 3-D plushies and chenille and wire sculptures in my teens and 20s.

Do you make the plush or harness from scratch?

No, I purchase all the items. Assemble and enhance them with fangs, wings or other fun additions. Make harness adjustments and any other needs before I ship them complete with the gear. This way keeping my expenses down keeps them more assessable to others that need them. If I had to make everything, which I can if I wanted to, I would easily charge $450 or more for a one of a kind plush animal.

Why do you remove the tags from the plushies?

Because I turned the plush into a ES Critter and the tag is irrelevant.

“I can go on Amazon and buy the plush and harness at half the cost!”

Of course you can shop and assemble your own. Nothing wrong with that. However this is my original masterminded creation. The ‘Do not pet, I’m working’ charm and ID badge are made by me exclusively. I also do harness and plushie enhancements which you will not find on existing commercial stuffed animals.

Can I buy the gear and IDs for my own Plushie?

Yes, I have listings on this site to purchase and get them personalized.

Why are these so expensive?

They actually are not. Once I buy and invest in all the items that go into making these happen, it adds up. I charge for my time as any one else does and have a right to do so.

Are you making fun of people with Special needs?

Absolutely not! The phrase: ‘ 0 Fucks given’ applies to the original Honey Badger video and the fact we all should not take life so seriously. Live, love and laugh a lot, it’s good for you. I have disclaimers on all the ES Critter pages in regards to this and ESA harnesses.

I want a harness and ID for my live pet.

The gear is only for plushies. Do not ask, I will not sell it to you. If I suspect you are buying the gear for a live pet, I will cancel your order and block you from my page.
