That purple cloud thingy is cute! (Sorry, I know it's from some cartoon that I don't watch)

and that crochet helmet is super duper!  Love the horns!

Anywho, here's my entry for the June Battle Royal.  I'm thinking that Romance is going to win this round (we are mostly ladies here after all,) but my heart truly lies with horror.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: June Battle Royal, Horror
Team/Ninja: Team Monster
Project Geekdom (if any): monsters!
Bonus Points: super nerdy bonus
Project Name: Pinhead Amigurumi
Project Page Link (if available): -
Brief Description: About a month ago I did a Hellraiser marathon in which I watched all 9 Hellraiser movies on Netflix.  I had seen the first five before and had always loved them, but I wanted to watch the whole series in succession.  It took me two weeks because I'm a busy lady, but at the end of those weeks I had a burning desire to make this guy along with a very bizarre crush on Pinhead.  Anywho, here he is.  I'm quite happy with him.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Mulitimedia (I choose Blue!)
Team/Ninja: Team Monster!
Project Geekdom (if any): monsters
Bonus Points: super nerdy bonus, discovery
Project Name: Monster Heart Brooch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I'm back with another poly clay creation!  I originally thought about making this as a felt badge, but I've been having such fun working with poly clay that I just couldn't stay away.  I made this heart from three different shades of blue.  I found these little pin/brooch backs at the craft store and was instantly struck with inspiration.  It was my first time making a brooch.  I was originally planning to push it into the clay, the way I've been doing with the eye pins to make charms, but that technique was misshaping it.  I ended up adding a layer of clay over the back of the pin and blending it into the back of the heart.  I wanted to cover the whole back side of the heart with the same shade of blue so that it would look neatly finished, but my 3-yr-old was doing the "momma, momma, momma, momma" thing, and had been for about 10 minutes, so I decided that it was good enough & that nobody was really going to see the back anyway.  Then I realized I should probably post a pic of the backside since I'm claiming the discovery points. doh! palm smacks the forehead!
Anyway, here it is pinned to my jacket.  I'm probably going to use it on my purse though.  Smiley

Project Picture:  The second one better represents the actual colors.  My flash kept washing out the colors in the first one.

I finally got around to making something!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Battle Royal
Team/Ninja: Team Monster
Project Geekdom (if any): Monsters!
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy Bonus
Project Name: Pirate Cthulhu charm
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
I've recently fallen in love with polymer clay as a crafting medium, so I thought it would be fun to make myself a charm.  I love The Call of Cthulhu, and I thought Cthulhu would make a great pirate for this challenge since he is after all a sea monster, or rather a monster buried at sea?  Anyway, let's just say that he's closely associated with the sea.  I want to hang it on a chain attached to each of the eye pins, but since the charm is really the crafty part, I figured it was okay to post as is.

I received these wonderful stitch markers from KitttyHerman, and it is sooo funny because we both made each other skulls and snails!  I was hitting myself in the head too, because I made myself extras of all the charms except the skulls. 

Anyway, here they are...

and the snails adorable face...

I think snails are the cutest thing ever!! Excuse my weirdness  Grin

AND, after I photographed then on my porch, I went to put them away and realized that....THEY GLOW IN THE DARK!

I love that they are all unique.  The tiny roses are amazing and must have taken a delicate touch to make!  Thanks KittyHerman I luuuvs them!!    (yes, i like using multiple exclamation marks)

Yay! And here are mine!  Thanks for posting pics for me till I could get some good shots deathbeforedishes  Grin

They are so beautiful & I love Smeddley's too!  Yes, the heart is genius.  And I love the clasps that you used.  I have to ask where you got them as I did not see anything that nice where I bought my clasps.
Thanks again!

I received this great addition to my extinct animals collection:

My first dodo!

Thanks whysteria!  I love dodo's.  They are so bizarre.

AND, I received THREE cards from kosmicgirl.  She did my Famous Monsters ABCs theme and didn't realize that I had already been claimed for the letter "P" until after she made two "P" atcs for me. SO, she then decided to make me ANOTHER atc, this time for the letter "G".  Really I never woulda minded the mistake since I can NEVER have too many monster ATCs, but you won't here me complaining.  Especially since kosmicgirl is such a talented artist!

lol! (kosmicgirl, no worries, I'm not offended.  I think it's great!)

kosmicgirl, thanks for going the extra mile.  I truly feel fortunate!

And here are two more from pilarfarmer for my extinct animals theme:

she claimed me for one but sent TWO!  Thanks Pilar!  I love 'em! I have a soft spot for Mammoths Wink

68  A Nessie hatchling in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by La Chapa on: May 02, 2013 07:28:27 PM
I made this amigurumi for my partner in the One Tiny Monster Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421152.0#axzz2SBvC5TD7) last month.  The crafted item had to be 3 dimensional, and no larger than 4 inches.  I had a hard time making it small enough to include the traditional long neck and still cute and baby-like, so I decided that sea/loch monsters are most likely hatched with short necks and then undergo a neck growth spurt in their early years. Wink  Anyway, on to pics.

Thanks for looking!

I received this ATC from Doctor Whaddayoudoinghere for my Famous monsters ABCs theme.

It's Pyramid head from Silent Hill!  Now I have to see the movie!  Thanks for the ATC & the movie homework.  (I love movie homework!)  Wink   

I also received this mini gallery piece by blupaisan.

It is her first time working with acrylics!  Can you believe it!?  AND, she did it on a gorgeous piece of birch bark from the Adirondacks!  Blupaisan, you are uber talented!  I may just have to put aside a little section of wall for your ATCs.  Anyway, my son loved it!  Oh, almost forgot to mention: it's called "one-eyed snow wolf" because there is a little hole (perhaps bored by a beetle?) where one of the eyes would be.  If you look closely you can see it (it looks white because of the cover for my scanner showing through.)  Here's a shot of the beautiful barky backside too.

Thanks again!

Um, I can't believe that I'm just now checking the April gallery!  Well, it is great so far & I especially love the naughty dog and the scratchboard puns! 

I received this ATC from OathKeeper for my Walking Dead theme:

So, I'm just wondering, is Daryl everyone's favorite character?  Seriously, because I don't know anyone who doesn't love him the most.  Anyway, thanks OathKeeper, I love it!
