1  Steampunk Clock Hand Hair Picks in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by spazkitty on: August 19, 2010 12:38:31 AM
I wonder why I haven't these posted yet?! It's been forever since I've been here! Well, since getting into Steampunk fashion(which consequently has made me insanely busy), I've made a wonderful use of clock hands for hair ornaments!





So what do you think? They actually can be worn in shorter hair if you attach them with a snap barrette, you can pin them to hats very easily, and they can slao be used as faux feathers in a hat band!

2  Convertible Hood Hat IMG HEAVY in Crochet: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: January 16, 2010 11:42:24 PM
Okay then, this design was actually a mistake. I was trying to make the North Country Cap featured in Crochet Magazine, but discovered this little gem because I decided not to follow the instructions. Basically once I had finished what I thought would be a comparable match to the North Country Cap, it turned out to be too small because I messed up the stitch count on purpose. Go me. So, I said screw it, I'll just stitch it up part way and it'll be an ear-flappy hooded thing! Well, it did turn out better than planned because the hat was a gift for my step father who wanted an earflap hat anyway! I added stings to the front to give it some earthy bohemian flair and discovered that these strings could actually be utilized! If you fold the brim up, you can tie it together at the back of the head and it becomes a beanie! Two for one! Since then, I've lengthened the brim in later versions to give it even more of a cowl look...but I think I want to make it longer still...

I think if I'm going to make it for men, I need to make it much much longer...Here's my hubby modeling another one rather unhappily (the brim is REALLY wide...but that hat is pretty big on me so it sits forward more on me):


It's a really simple pattern, too! All single crochet! Here's a link to the original pattern I intended to use.

I changed it up because I wanted to use a larger hook...and I needed to because a size J is just not big enough for the Lion Homespun yarn.

3  Re: Chocobo time (PATTERN UP) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: August 26, 2009 01:11:25 PM
I maded one! He's so cute! You can't tell from the pic, but he has three different yellows in his feathers...as for the wings...Hrk. Double crochet and I have epic battles which I usually lose... so I just made lots o' the tail feathers from your pattern and sewed 'em together. It works! I call him Mr. Kweh McWarkwark. He sits in my lap while I play Dissidia and I make him dance when my progress chocobo chirps! Awwww....

4  Pyramid Head Cake in Dessert by spazkitty on: July 31, 2009 01:20:54 PM
I love Silent Hill. Love. And I love Pyramid Head. So, for my birthday I maded myself a lovely cake. I have no decorating experience whatsoever hence the hoof-like boots, stubby arms, and banana-esque Great Knife. I do love CakeWrecks! Wink Anyhoo, here he is:

Before the gore fest:


And after the gore fest:


His insides were quite tasty! He was a marble red velvet and chocolate with a cherry filling to represent the rusty bloody wonder that is Silent Hill. Mmm...macabre. The remainder of the cherry filling is what I used for splatter effect. Meh.

5  Gurren Lagann Amigurumi: Viral in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: July 31, 2009 01:11:18 PM
So, adding to my growing army of Amigurumi characters, I've decided to try someone from Gurren Lagann. I chose Viral, because an indignant chibi viral is awesome, he's also a gift to someone who loves the angry beastman, and I had the perfect yarn for his hair. (I still HATE attempting anime hair with yarn, but this time it kinda worked out.) This is the post time skip version (though I am sorely tempted to do his teeny towel outfit).

Without the cape n scarf:



And with his cape and scarf:


Maybe I'll try Kamina next...but that would involve embroidery for his tattoos...hmm...

6  Demon Diary Amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: May 13, 2009 02:07:31 PM

So, for my best friend's birthday I decided to make her another little amigurumi doll from the only manga I've forced her to read that she adored: Demon Diary. So here's a little Raenef and Eclipse! I wish the pic was better of Ecplise because I think I did a bang up job on his hair, the camera just sucks. I hand made his earring (which you can't see), fixed his hair in place so it has that wonderful manwha style disarray (which you can't see), and his apron says "Kitchen Wench" (which you CAN see). Raenef turned out better than planned with his doofy wide-eyed open mouthed stare he's so famous for! They also have magnets in their butts to keep them standing up straight on metal surfaces, otherwise they're too top heavy with all that hair!

7  NomNom Hat (img heavy...) in Crochet: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: February 20, 2009 09:57:42 PM
 So, because the Sooba hat for my little amigurumi Cale was so darn cute I maded meself a full sized Sooba NomNom Hat. I suppose it could be a generic "Big Animal Biting Your Head" beanie, but this was specifically made as the Looking For Group panther familiar, (lets say it one more time lol) Sooba.

Le Flat


 Grin Now with realistic nomming action!! Grin

Le Side


Le Front  I'm trying not to look happy about the panther eating my skull...


I had fun making this hat (even though it eventually made my fingers bleed). It gives me warm fuzzies. The teeth try to blind me, but that's okay, I suppose! But I sorta feel like I should be wearing a fluffy whitish wig and speaking to woodland creatures...  Cheesy

8  Amigurumi LFG Cale'Anon the Elf in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: February 12, 2009 09:13:38 AM
Alrighty, in going with my Looking for Group theme I decided that Richard needed a Cale to torment! So, here he is! Amugurumi Cale'Anon, the worst blood-elf these ever was, of course with spiffy accessories! ^_^ Again, I gave him detatchable arms (mostly for Richard's amusement as he will surely make himself an Elflock in the near future) and made his hair out of feathers! He always struck me as a little too fluffy for his own good anyway! Grin I used pipe cleaners for the eyebrows (since in the comic they stick out so darn far and are only lines after a while). The cloak was a pain in the butt simply because the pauldrons were so darned finicky. Angry I used the same head and body patterns as Creepy Cute Crochet, but everything else is the product of a lot of trial and error.  This one is a more typical chibi amigurumi.

Typical Cale in his herioc garb. Cue epic music.

Cale and his cloak


Cale is constantly loved on by an over-eager troll named Tim, who affectionately calls him CHICKEN!!!!

Your chicken is in danger! Save the chicken, Tim!


Our failure of a blood-elf also has a gorgeous panther familiar by the name of Sooba who, instead of attacking Cale's enemies, seems to very much like nomming on Cale himself.

Sooba can has elf?


Awesome sauce! XD

9  Amigurumi mindflayer in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: February 07, 2009 10:27:59 AM
It started out as a Cthulu...and rapidly fell into decline because this was one of my very first amigurumi projects. It's head was horribly lumpy, so I decided to cover it with a hood...heh. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my triple crochets, so I gave up on the wings...and now you see a mindflayer. Patterns for head, body, and hood are from the Creepy Cute crochet book. I made the poor cloak and collar on the fly (they're horrific!! if you ask me), and added another face tentacle to make it more mindflayer-esque. I've only been crocheting for about a month...Poor mindflayer.

Richard turned out much better! XD

10  Amigurumi LFG Richard the Warlock in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by spazkitty on: February 07, 2009 10:09:52 AM
Well, for my friend's birthday, I decided to make her an amigurumi Richard from the Looking for Group webcomic. If you haven't read it you should at: www.lfgcomic.com. He was supposed to be chibi, but wound up a chibi torso... Anyway, I've been making dolls from the Creepy Cute crochet book, and I used the basic head and body patterns from that...the arms, hood, pauldrons, and red trim on the hood I had to make up myself, which wasn't too bad...the trick was making the arms interchangable, because Richard has a habit of losing them and replacing them with weird things (like the Handfork of Truth and bear arms)...So I used magnets!! YAY!! So here he is:

Regular chibi


Bear arms


HANDFORK OF TRUTH!!!


Chillin' with Silent Hill's Pyramid Head (let's face it, they'd be best friends)


Next on my things to do: a Pyramid head amigurumi ^_^
