Hi guys, I'm new here, but I recently learned to crochet and I've gone crazy for those crocheted stuffies.  I hope to use this thread to post all the arigurumi stuff I make.  I was trying to post this last night, but for some reason craftster doesn't seem to work in the middle of the night, so I lost everything I wrote.

Well anyhow, I made a Tori Amos arigurumi; which is where I got my thread title from.  I scanned her in and made a gif of her doing the cornflake dance (my reference being this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0J_zaWbNgQ&search=cornflake%20dance) - gotta luv that crazy Pele Tori.  I'll have to post some pics of her playing piano sometime Smiley.  I also made a crochet blog at lj (http://crochethotel.livejournal.com using my Tori arigurumi as the theme.

So without further adieu, I give you the dancing Tori!

Yay, Tori!!  And crochet.  Two of my favorite things!  I love the parody scan of your crochet Tori on your blog.  You also could have called it from the crochet girl hotel; that's what my mind keeps wanting to read.  But it's still really cute.  I love it!!

Thanks!  Nice to see the Tori fans out there.  Zitrone21, I was debating whether to do crochetgirl hotel, but at the time I thought crochet hotel sounded better.  Now, I'm not sure again!  Hmm maybe I'll change the words to that on the image although I can't change my lj name now. 

I took some pictures of Tori Ami (hehe I like this name) straddling and playing a toy piano, but I can't find my connector to upload them, I'll look around though!

Aaa!

I love fierce-Tori going at her piano. I saw her play in Virginia last summer. That was awesome, and this is too.  Grin
