1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Stay Puft! on: February 28, 2012 03:46:51 AM
The Stay Pufft Marshmallow man is a character from the movie Ghostbusters. He is the mascot of a fictional marshmallow brand. In the movie, the hapless main characters inadvertently summon a giant Stay Pufft Marshmallow man that terrorizes New York City until they explode him and a giant wave of sticky, gooey marshmallow fluff.

Thanks! I'm so used to just talking to nerdy people haha! Also, this is the BEST quick explanation ever!

We all know this guy!

Originally I made a smaller Mr. Stay Puft quite a while back, but I was never satisfied with it. I thought he looked too "simple" you know?



This version is way better, if I do say so myself. He has much more detail and a great presence!



If you want to see what the original looked like (as well as a few more shots and ramblings on this guy) check out my blog:

Thanks for looking!

Nothing says Christmas to me like sitting down in front of a glowing TV and watching Robot Santa terrorize New New York. Christmas is about bringing people together, not blowing them apart! Hahaha I just love the Christmas Futurama episodes!

     



So, in honor of my Futurama love I crocheted my own Robot Santa who sits (aka, tied forcibly with lights) atop my Christmas tree. To see more pictures, including him on my tree please visit my blog:

Oh that is sooo cool! Perfect for Christmas! I think it would make a perfect center piece for the dinning room table! I think Im gonna clean my table off this week...and maybe borrow your decorating idea Cheesy

(If you wont mind?) Lovely job, your friend will be pleased.

Are you kidding? I would love to see another version! Oddly enough I was thinking that it would be a great Thanksgiving center piece, so I'm glad someone else can see it in the same light!

Thanks for the support everyone!

A good friend of mine asked me to make something unique to donate to a charity auction. After several days of trying to figure something out I went with a pretty winter tree filled with cardinals. It's all amigurumi style, though I'm not sure you would technically call it a amigurumi. The birds are though!

Thanks for looking!

Yay, jawa and a versatile robe pattern! Now I'll be haunted by this because I know someone who'd love this and had his birthday recently...

Thanks for putting a positive spin on poor Blizz. I didn't realize that the game isn't actually out yet (husband is beta testing) so no one knows who he is!! For the basic Jawa just leave off the patches and white trim Smiley

Wow, nicely done. He looks cool and mysterious  Cool

Cheers.

Thanks!!

Wow! Thank you! Let me know how he turns out!

My husband requested Blizz from Star Wars the Old Republic and so of course I had to make him! (He doesn't request things very often)

Details

Patches: grey felt sewn on with embroidery floss to make the stitches stand out.
Sash: one long strip of brown felt with embroidered details on the edges.
Hands: felt folded in half with rounded edges (there's a little foil gun inserted into his grip).
Shoulder pads: cut out pointed bits of felt and line with the same grey as the hood. Sew around so the yarn is incorporated around the felt.
