The rest of this blog is more of a photo dump of things I've been working on for other people. Most recently a regular Etsy customer who has ordered my entire Totoro collection as well as custom orders including a killer tomato...for his dad who starred in attack of the killer tomatos....He's a faithful customer for sure, and he loves to challenge me. Most recently he asked me if I could work up a Gamera...so Gamera looks a little something like this:
He's a crazy Japanese turtle monster thing. I'm not super familiar, but you get the idea. This is what I came up with:
It's hard to not make crocheted dolls much cuter than their inspirations. It just is.
Also, my friend Karis needed a Chica Chicken doll....for a co-worker's daughter, and I'm pretty proud of this one:
It's just so cute! I don't know much about the character. I watched a brief you tube clip...it's a chicken that sounds like a kazoo? I don't see the appeal personally, but I liked the aesthetics of the character, so I worked it up.
For another friend, who has nephews who like ax-wielding vikings:
I loved doing the hair and mustache for this guy. I have a thing for vikings myself...like Eric Northman on True Blood...and I guess also because I studied viking history and literature in college. It was a phase.
Finally, for the little boy who has securely wormed his way into my heart and insists I don't make him dolls, for Finnegan, a Superman doll:
He sleeps with it. It's pretty cute.
Okay that's my project dump. You are officially up to date on what I've been working on so feverishly.
