12  I Have Not Had My Snowflakes Whitened in Winter Holidays by ld on: December 09, 2009 03:52:19 PM
I did this one last year when I started my Fannish Snowflakes, but I'm only just now getting around to posting it here  Smiley

Top Gear snowflake, anyone?

Folded paper + scissors. My first time cutting interior silhouettes. There are also two gears in the design.

Flake measures 8.5" wide.

Do you see the guys?

13  Hand grenades, Resident Evil 5 style in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: November 18, 2009 12:28:00 PM

Life-size plush replica hand grenades, Resident Evil/Biohazard 5 style.

There that's done it.

Original plan was to use metal keyrings for the pull rings, but I wanted something I could safely hurl at the TV when stupid things come on.

Which I totally do.

15  Sofa. The final frontier. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ld on: August 21, 2009 09:34:47 AM
My TV sofa decided its cushion collection needed some groovy late-'60s SF goodness.

Who was I to say no?



Can't get it with my camera, but Spock's insignia and about half the stars?
Glow in the dark. Ohh yeah.

Acrylic felt + polyfill, all hand-cut/hand-stitched.

16  Plush Fell Beast (picture-heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: June 05, 2009 11:02:59 AM
A Fell Beast from Lord of the Rings.

Here he is, perched on my TTT:EE box.

His wings are wired one joint further along than my Reign of Fire dragons, which gives them more support and makes them easier to pose. I quite like it, and if I do any more winged creatures in the future they'll be done that way, too.

Tail and neck are fully wired, as usual.

Some closeups of his head. Special shout-out to my friend L Cabrillo, who suggested that the Fell Beast needed visible jaws. And she was right! Once I figured out how to do it, I loved the way it turned out.

Uh-oh. Now I want to watch the movie, but I can't get near the box...

17  Plush Sims plumbob in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: April 22, 2009 01:22:36 PM
(Say that five times fast!)

Anyone else out there addicted to Sims 2?

It was surprisingly hard to get the colors to look right when photographed.
There are four shades of green, plus white.
Thread is a very pale green.

Colors show up most accurately here.

And one more pic, just for scale (it's 10" tall).

Eternal happiness is now guaranteed!

18  Felt Lembas in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: April 08, 2009 04:40:17 PM
I love seeing all the clever and great-looking felt foods that people come up with. I don't often get the urge (or is that the patience?) to make them myself, but as a LOTR fan I just had to do this one.

A nice leaf-wrapped package...

Lembas! Yesss!
I've been wanting to get some; I heard you can hike a whole day on one of these.

Wait! What's this?

PIPPIN!! I know it was you!

He's a regular bottomless pit!

Hobbits...can't live with 'em, can't feed 'em to the Balrog...

19  Friendly Robot! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: March 28, 2009 11:13:29 AM
My current plush project isn't cooperating, so I made this guy instead to cheer me up.

It's a Friendly Robot!

Say hi to everyone!

Here he is letting me know he's found the spool of thread I was looking for.

Here are his little hoverglide pads.

And here he is bringing me a toothpick for my glue.

Thank you, Friendly Robot!

20  Plush Bugatti Veyron! (Top Gear inspired...and pic heavy!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ld on: March 22, 2009 11:05:30 AM
Oh Bugatti Veyron, what a sexy car you are.

It's only one of the most expensive production cars in the world, but now I can say I own a Veyron.

I've been wanting to make this for months now. I kept trying to talk myself out of it, because making cars is a really demanding project. But.

It's a Veyron. How could I resist?

Given its sleek, smooth shape, I figured it would be hard but still quite do-able.

How hard could it be?

It was crazy difficult.

The geometry looks deceptively simple. Thing is, it's really hard to reproduce those shapes, especially without making a lumpy or seam-covered car. And the silhouette is so iconic, it's immediately obvious if you've miscalculated even just a bit. I found out the hard way.

Several times.

I thought at least it'd be simpler than my plush car from Supernatural, so I was stunned when I counted the pieces afterward and found out they were almost exactly the same number (about 53).

Don't even get me started on the engine.

Top Gear introduced me to this beautiful car by way of the truffles race, so I've sort of color-matched it to the one Jeremy drove (as much as the changing lighting of the original film will allow, anyway)!

In progress, just before the last two wheels go in. The rear wheels are slightly wider than the front ones.

Have I mentioned the headlights glow in the dark? No Cessna is beating this car! (Sorry James.)

I looove my new baby.
