Loki de Pon!

So Feb. 9 is Tom Hiddleston's birthday. He's turning 34. Yey! ^^ Older but still handsome and dashing as ever. Definitely sexier. Woohoo! -^.^-

Being a member of the Hiddles community, I needed to contribute to our man's special day. For some time I've been thinking about what I'm gonna do. Clearly, sketching is out of the question since my drawing skills are still dud. Damn! I really can't get them hands right. So that leaves me with one option... Amigurumi time!!! ^^ But there are already plenty versions of Loki amis out there. How do I stand out? Combine hotness with kawainess!!! Meaning... Loki + Mirmo de Pon. ^^ 

Obviously, I re-used my Seven Dwarves pattern since it's already inspired by the cute, chubby fairies. I just tweaked it a little bit to make it cuter (If that's possible... I mean it's already freakin' adorable!!!). With the base down, the only problem was how to make it resemble Loki as closely as possible. It took a while to analyze Loki's costume since it has lots of components. Seriously, I think his outfit has more buckles and leather than a rodeo. Well, the heavier, the better right? ^^

Anyway, After removing this, adding that I eventually figured out what to do with the Loki and Mirmo mash-up and voila! See my beautiful creation!!! Hahaha! ^^

With that done, I think a proper birthday greeting is in order... Happy Birthday Tom!!! I wish you all the happiness in the world. Like Benedict Cumberbatch, I hope you also find your OTP. I wish you'd end up with Natalie Portman, but you know... Damn! That would've been really awesome for Lokane (Loki x Jane) fans (Like me! Huehuehue!). Anyway, enjoy your special day... You wonderful, wonderful man you. ^^

Everybody clear your schedule 'coz... Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming this May!!! Aaaaah-YEAH! ^^
