I believe that if you can dream it, you can crochet it. Take these red lions. My daughter decided she wanted a red lion, so I made the bigger one. She told me it was too big. She loves small things. I tried again and made it smaller. She was well pleased with the smaller one but also played with the larger one, too.
The body is worked in continuous rounds while the mane was the harder part(but not really hard to do). I just had to add more stitches to make it fan out. I might have used the shell stitch or because of the size I probably just did three single crochet to a stitch, skip one, repeat.
