1  Re: HP Craftalong ~Summer Semester 2012~ *twist trial* in Craftalongs by Noxika on: May 23, 2012 01:56:53 AM
Class: Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: The Walking Dead: Zombie of the Week
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408962.0
Brief Description: I am rather taken with some muggle entertainment they call The Walking Dead - it's full of inferi-type beings which they call zombies; I tried my hand at creating one of these dreaded beasts - though my attempt shall remain spell-free and inanimate!
Project Picture:

2  The Walking Dead; zombie of the week! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: May 23, 2012 01:45:53 AM
I fell in love with The Walking Dead and decided to make a two-piece plush project; Daryl Dixon shooting a random zombie in the head with an arrow! \o/ It's been sitting in my "to finish" box for awhile but after joining the HP Craft-a-long  (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408525.0 >> check it out, it's siriusly awesome  Cheesy), I was inspired to finally finish him.

I am still working on Daryl, but I have just finished his little Zombie victim of the week! I fashioned him after the unfortunate fellow who was ripped in half when he was being pulled from the well.



He's made with my newest pattern -- well, the top half anyway! His eyes and teeth are painted with glow-in-the-dark paint for an extra dab of creepiness. It was the first time I've ever made an actual mouth for a plush, rather than painting it on. Each tooth is individually cut out, decayed with paint, and glued in.



His fingers are can be posed (the ones he has left, that is!)



The other wounds are made from fabri-tac dipped in red paint - it gives a lovely gooey, wet look.





His uh, entrails are made from polyfill, red roving fibres and some paint.



Hopefully soon I'll finish Daryl so he can play with the little dude and probably cut his ear off to add to his necklace. Wink
Thanks for looking!

I received from the fabulous Banana731!! 

I mentioned how much I *love* the promo pics of Fringe and what should turn up on my doorstop? A perfect little charm bracelet with those images and some pretty beads -- soo in love with it!



Close up! (because it's worth it  Cheesy)



And as if that wasn't brilliant enough, I also received a lovely note and.....TWIZZLERS! I know now why Walter adores this stuff; it's deliciousssss. I've never seen it for sale here, so I'm trying to eat it slowly and make it last.  Wink Cheesy



Thank you for the wonderful package! It made my week. ^__^

4  Unicorn beanies in Knitting: Completed Projects by Noxika on: May 08, 2012 02:00:19 AM
Okay so this was challenging but a lot of fun!  I found this epic sparkly yarn that just screamed MAGIC  Cheesy It's super soft and I am kind of in love with it. The ears took me foreverrrr to get right - my bin is full of "cat" ears  Wink and the horn is stuffed with polyfill.

I couldn't decide between a loose mane or a tamer plaited mane (dressage unicorn!) so I made both.

Version one;







Version two;









I'm still tweaking the pattern, trying to fix all those "invisible" problems - you know the kind that no one else but the person who made something can see?, lol.   But overall I kinda dig the way they turned out and so did the recipient, so that's what matters the most I think.  Cheesy Cheesy

I was just surfing through Facebook when I saw this Psych post and thought...hey, isn't that Noxika's plushie of Lassiter??



So cool!

That is ....kinda awesome. lol. I don't have facebook (I confess it confuses me) so I would have missed this completely - THANK YOU for posting it, I must admit I do love seeing little Lassie popping up in unexpected places.  Cheesy

6  Sherlock Holmes. Again. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: February 04, 2012 04:08:23 AM
One day I'll stop making Sherlock plushies. ...one day.  Until that day though, I have another, with my new pattern!

First up, sorry about the bad quality pics - my camera is having issues. :/

Sherlock is 15.5 inches tall and his coat made me want to slam myself -- and Sherlock -- into a wall. Repeatedly.  I'm going to be making a couple more, and there are some points I'm going to modify, but overall I thought it turned out as a passable/recognizable version of THE Coat (if you are a Sherlock fan you'll know all about THE Coat).





His coat and scarf come off but the rest of his clothes aren't removable. I made his shirt about half a dozen times perfecting the collar (after learning especially how to make a collar stand) only to realize that without a neck, it was never going to work and had to go with a slightly less impressive version. :/ 





His eyes were hand painted with acrylics, as always and his hair is many,  many, mannnyyy pieces of layered felt.



And just because even though they always end up going to different homes, I have to make them with a height difference. My brain.. it is weird like that.



Comments are always welcomed! It makes all the stabbing myself with pins and so forth seem worthwhile! ^___^

7  Watson, John Watson (..the third?) *Many Pics* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: January 21, 2012 04:08:01 PM
This is the third incarnation of John Watson from the BBC's Sherlock that I've made to date, and all three have been different designs... I think this little guy is my favourite so far.


http://pics.livejournal.com/noxika/pic/0006eryb

He stands about 13" tall and is made out of deer suede, felt, denim and 4 ply off-white wool.

http://pics.livejournal.com/noxika/pic/0006f7zt

The eyebrows are a new thing -- I like that they match the hair colour perfectly and add dimension to the face but ... I don't know. I'm not 100% sold yet. Possibly because it's the first time I've done them this way and my brain isn't used to it yet? I tried painting them on but it looked strange in a light colour, and black was too harsh for a blonde plushie. I think it's just the colouring. Sherlock's eyebrows seem to fit a lot better, given their dark colouring against the pink skintone fabric. If I do another John I might give  him a very light brown hair / brow treatment and see how that works since Martin's hair doesn't seem truly blond to me anyway. *shrug*

http://pics.livejournal.com/noxika/pic/0006h01x

He can't quite stand on his own; he likes to be propped again something. Wink

http://pics.livejournal.com/noxika/pic/0006kbb3

And his eyes are painted on with acrylic paint.

http://pics.livejournal.com/noxika/pic/0006g1k2

..and in a couple of days he'll have his very own plush consulting detective to follow around! Smiley

8  Panic plushies - my most detailed to date. {IMG & RAMBLING HEAVY} in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: October 22, 2011 01:40:41 AM


These guys were made for an amazing friend of mine who was supposed to gift them to her lovely girlfriend at Christmas, but as fate would have it, they arrived on their half-anniversary and thus they became half-anniversary gifts --- she couldn't wait!  Cheesy

Initially she asked me to make the lead singer, Brendon, of Panic at the Disco, dressed in his Steampunk outfit as seen in the Ballad of Mona Lisa video but I ended up making both him and Spencer (? I think his name is) when I found out that he was actually her gf's favourite PatD member.

I don't think I'm ever truly happy with my creations, ohaithar inner perfectionist, but I've got to admit, I think these guys turned out pretty damn cute.

The real deal....


The plushie version...


This guy had SO many details. I took a billion screencaps and was constantly checking them out. A couple of things, like the medallion, I just had to guess some of the finer details. His medal is fabric & clay and his raccoon (?) tail is white faux fur coloured with fabric markers.



I couldn't make out the time on the clock around his neck so I made it 9 o'clock - the time they stop the clocks in the video. >.< His bandolier (? bullet thingo) is made from leather and the bullets are made of clay. His clock is fleece.



Bullets!.. they're removable from their slots and cuuute. >.<



The gears are little metal jewelry findings, the speedometer thing on his arm is clay and resin, the buckles and medal are clay,



The patch is fleece and all those blots on his jacket is a mix of fabric and acrylic paint.



His top hat.. ergh. This is attempt #2. It is completely handmade so it's a little wonky, but it's wool-felt with cardboard sewn inside to help keep it's shape. The goggles... you can't see in the pic, but one lens was a transparent red.. I only realized when I'd started painting it that the red I grabbed wasn't transparent, so it looks a little odd. Fail. The lenses were actually from a kid's binoculars that I smashed apart (and had to fix the sides up with cold porcelain 'cause they kinda got a bit smooshed) with polymer clay, cold porcelain and leather accents. My mum painted the ribbon for me because I couldn't get it right -- the ribbon was initially gauzey and the paint kept doing weird things. Boo @ painting stuff.  I also used a hot glue gun for the first (and last!!) time ever to attach the goggles to the hat -- and OMG it made such a mess. I hate them. I couldn't clean it up or pick it off. Kinda ticked me off. -.-



Anndd... the top hat is removable. ^__^ I made his hair out of fleece which is a little too floppy for my liking -- hence I made the other dude's hair from felt pieces. I tried to give him a cheeky smirking expression, not entirely convinced it worked but I think he's cuuuute.



And, Little Drummer Boy!

The Real version..


The plush version;

His hair is felt -- since he doesn't have a top hat to hide under, it is stiffer so stands up better.  His jacket is the same fabric as Brendon's but I dyed it blue -- and then soaked it in vanilla to try and get rid of the ewww dye smell.  Oh. And he doesn't have the pins on his jacket. :/ It makes me sad-face but I couldn't find any like those, only actual sewing pins with colourful heads and my scissors wouldn't cut through them. Sad  His expression is supposed to be his trademark B!#ch Face look. He looks rather unimpressed to me, so.. I guess it sort of worked.



His stubble is shaded on with Prisma colours .. I was going to do paint dots as well but chickened out. It's a little darker in real life, and I hope it's okay. *_* My first time attempting facial hair..lol. His necktie thingo is a little lighter in colour than it should be, but I had a hell of a time trying to find material that would fall the right way, in the end I had to ditch the inner perfectionist and go with close enough. The pin is made of clay, his chain, which I've only just realized is too long is a polyester chain thing that is basically fabric wrapped in thread to make it look like a chain.  I made his lock from fabric rather than clay to match the clock around Brendon's neck.



His hand... thing is made from clay and fleece.  I put it on his left hand but it does change hands in the video and it is removable so it can be moved from hand to hand.



I almost didn't see this, but since I did, here it is! The skull was made of clay on a jewelry finding, and attached with some chains and various pretty chains.



Anndd... I've run out of pics again. XD  These are the most crazy-detailed plushies I've made to date, and the most frustrating. ...but my friend and her girl both seem to love them so it was definitely worth the angsting. Wink

9  Neck Ruffle..thing. No Idea what it's called or how to make it - help?! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Noxika on: August 19, 2011 11:50:01 PM
I'm making some steampunk plushies for a friend based off a certain band, and the costume I'm trying to make has this weird neck ruffle thing that I can't really search for tips on how to make because I have no idea what it is. If you know what it's called or even better, have any clue how to make one I would seriously appreciate your help! If all else fails I'll just gather up some material, but I'm hoping to make it as authentic as possible.  Cheesy

I just have to ask about your avatar! I know that you photoshopped shawn and gus w/ their dolls but the lassie one looks real.
If it is real then....what did he think?
If it is a photoshop then....good work on the photoshopping!!!

Hey!  I had to change my avatar because it makes me smile every time I see it because Yep, this one is real!  Cheesy    A (now)friend who bought my Shawn and Lassiter plushies took the Lassie one to show Tim at the premiere of his film 25 Hill, and this was his face when he saw it;


And then he and his wife basically "freaked out" (my friend's words, lol) over it so much, wanting to take pics and saying his kids would love it that she ended up giving him the plushie.  Shocked Cheesy

And some more pics (just 'cause I can! Tongue)







So now Tim Omundson owns a plushie I made of his character... It's a touch surreal and completely mind-boggling. lol.  And now I have to make her a replacement Lassie so Shawn doesn't get lonely!  Cheesy Cheesy
