Hi all, my first time posting a completed project on Craftster (due to some forum shyness!) so here goes!
I've been making my boyfriend sock monkeys for a few months now, as part of the "Aido's Monkey Army" so for Christmas I decided to go one better and make him something extra special - his favourite super/anti-hero, Rorschach from Watchmen. We both agree that Rorschach is the most bad ass superhero of the lot. It's true! He never loses sight of what's right and wrong, he doesn't want ANYONE to see his real face, he's a bit crazy and he can fight as well as any superhero. He's the quintessential anti-hero.
In fact, my boyfriend loves Rorschach so much that he actually bought a Rorschach costume for his character in Little Big Planet and hasn't changed it since
So, pretty much based on the sock monkey design, I managed to make him. The only real things to cause me problems were trying to do some guerilla sewing whilst commanding Aido not to look around at what I'm doing (we live together you see!) and the hat (which frustrated me enough to come onto Craftster and ask for help but nobody apparently could help so I scoured the internet instead and finally found a design).
He's not the best made plushie out there, but my boyfriend loves him!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas!
