Dolls back at Giant Robot, and some custom orders

Okay okay, so I have officially dropped off some more dolls at Giant Robot.  Hopefully there as successful in store as they were at Comic Con!

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.
