Smeddley, that first one is a Digimon, which were around before Pokemon.
It looks like a cross between Lopmon, who is brown and pink, and Terriermon, who is white and green. I suppose pink and white is a fan creation.

I love your dunmer!  That cloak is pretty dang cool. 

Thank you! I thought I'd go blind sewing it because I used such tiny stitches and the thread is a perfect match for the material. Usually there's a slight difference but not this time.

Paying work is taking much less time than I expected, so I will be able to spend more time crafting.  I can't do much else, having to hide out from the 100F+ temperatures.   Roll Eyes

My August Randomizer alternate geekdom is *drumroll* - Harry Potter!  My 83 year old dad is a huge Harry Potter fan, so I'm making him a special embroidery for his birthday.  Smiley

I'm hiding from the heat and looking for inspiration, myself.

Yay for Harry Potter! Grin

To me, Craftster means there's a place I can share my geekiness and be inspired by the geekiness of others. Here I can post crafts related to my different interests and no one thinks "Oh, you were crazy to make that! You should have just bought it!" Here I can meet people from across the globe who understand the desire to make things inspired by a favorite media rather than buy it.
But Craftster also means I'm inspired to carry on the tradition of crafting, something I learned by watching my grandmother, who passed away some years ago, and my mom. My grandmother often modified patterns to suit her purpose or made her own, something many of my fellow Craftsters do and something I'm learning myself.
So in honor of my geekiness, my family's crafting tradition, and the glory of Craftster, I made a mage's cloak for Etain, my custom Monster High doll who was inspired by The Elder Scrolls games by Bethesda. The cloak was made by modifying Simplicity 9887, version B.



To make the pattern, I scanned the diagram of pattern pieces from the pattern instructions. I had found a tutorial on how to adjust patterns to fit dolls by using Photoshop or a similar program but I couldn't find it again so I had to eyeball the pattern.



The hardest part was getting the hood the proper size because 1) Monster High dolls' heads are a bit on the large side and 2) her ears stick out since she was made from a Create-A-Monster werewolf girl.



In the end, it was worth the effort because now my Dunmer has a cloak to sneak around in while on missions from the Dark Brotherhood.

So thank you Craftster and thanks to all the wonderfully geeky and crafty people who populate this site!  Kiss

PS,
For those wondering, her dress was made by the lovely Amigurl55 and I received as a part of a Monster High themed swap.

EDIT:
It should also be noted that this robe is completely hand sewn. I was paranoid that I'd sew my hand to my project.

I love that line. I was the only one in my family to catch it at first and they thought I was crazy.

Hello lovelies. Glad to be back after a month away organizing things. I've been lurking on the web but avoiding Craftster because seeing projects here makes me want to craft instead of organize.
