My 'Ego!!!

0 Comments
So my little nephew, that sugar-high bouncing ball of red bull energy, just celebrated his 4th birthday and his dearest wish was to have lots of "Egos". Yah... He still has that cute baby speech defect so his pronunciation of Lego is still funky. Hahaha! Originally, I wanted to give him a large Baymax doll, but since he seems pretty caught up on those Lego thingies I decided to grant him his wish... In gigantor Lego brick style. Woo-hoo! ^o^

To make such a humongous Lego I used a bigger hook and tons of yarn, once again crocheting in dual-skeins. You'd think it's easy making a simple cuboid (Apparently that's the technical term for "3D" rectangle O_O), but IT'S NOT, as in NOT at all. >_< Not only did the repetition almost drove me insane, but it was brutal on my hands. Owie! T_T But for my sweet, darling nephew it's a sacrifice I'm willing to take... The little monster! Hahaha! XD

Monaco Yarn Shade #21 - Rose (34-36 skeins)

Here's my leg for size...
For those who are not aware that I use my leg to approximate the height of a big gurumi project... Well, there you have it; a most unconventional way to measure. Hahaha! Like what I said when I approximated the giant Nemo, I'm 5'4.5" in height. FYI, I'm one of those people that have short torsos so most of my height originates from my legs. Yah, with that much legs I could've been a model. Sigh! Cruel, cruel world... Hahaha! XD

Anyway, this project was a major pain in the "A" double "S" but so worth it after my nephew received his gift. Well, at first he kicked it (The little turd!!!), but eventually he hugged it like it's the most awesome thing in the world. Aww! ^_^
Sigh! The things I'd do for my niece and nephew... The joy and tribulations of an auntie. Hahaha!

Oi Oi Dimple

0 Comments
For my baby brother's birthday, I thought to make him an amigurumi of Dimple from the anime Mob Pyscho 100. The upper-class evil spirit that started as a villain, but eventually became one of the wacky protagonists. FYI, the artist that created OnePunch-Man also created this anime/manga. Mob Psycho 100 has a tad more serious theme, but still very funny.

So why Dimple and not my lil' bro's greatest fear: spiders? Well, let's just say I got tired of creepy-crawlies and wanted to do something different... A little break from the brown and not so brown skeins. Plus, I'm not so hot about crocheting eight legs at the moment. I did Rocky Roach's legs and it took a hell lot of mindset, tears, sweat, and blood (Extreme exaggeration) to finish. I was incredibly bored with the repetition. O_O I guess it's just one of those days.

Dimple may not be the most powerful spirit (Almost wiped out countless times, I mean seriously! O_O), but he's definitely the cutest. My lil' bro could not be happier... He even thought of hanging Dimple in a wire so it'd be like he's actually following him everywhere like he does with Shigeo (Main Protagonist) in the anime/manga. Sigh! Nerd. Hahaha! XD

Things that should never go together:

Rainbow Fairy Girls

Once again, I'm in a rainbow frenzy. And when I mean frenzy, I meant crocheting seven fairies representing each shade of the rainbow frenzy! What can I say? Totally gaga over rainbows. Hahaha!  

For my fairies' base, I used the Margarita doll pattern by Mia Zamora Johnson. Remember I used it's wings pattern when I made the Japanese anime version of Tinkerbell? Well this time I'm gonna use the whole enchilada.... Except the wings. Oh! The irony. ^^
