My friend is putting on a Harry Potter Fan Art show in a few weeks where there will fan art of all sorts, a screening of Brad Neely's "WIZARD PEOPLE, DEAR READER" and tasty wizard snacks.
When I first found out about it, I said to myself (in an Eeyore-esk voice) "Hmph. I love Harry Potter and would love to participate, but I'm not artistic. Ho-hum". Then my friend asked me if I wanted to contribute anything, and a lightbulb went off in my head. "Hello, amigurumi Harry Potter characters?!".
I didn't want to do the normal main characters, so I decided (with the help of my roomate) to make some of Hagrid's pets.
The first one I have done is Fluffy, the 3-headed dog:
I personally think his body is a little too large. But then again, I'm guessing a 3-headed dog would need to have some extra organs inside of the chest cavity (like extra sets of lungs and whatnot), so I suppose it works. (Even if it didn't work, I'm NOT about to tear this damn thing apart).
I'm working on Buckbeak / Witherwings right now, and the last one I want to get done is Norbert. You know they'll get posted here when I'm done with them.
