tell me if you use the pattern please Smiley and post pics.

*****UPDATE******

I made another Gir from my pattern using the right color yarn and I weeded out a few mistakes and embellished on the arms and feet. The pattern is all good to go now. The kinks should be all out of it. Here is a new pic. The pattern is for this Gir Cheesy

lol I might get around to making a puppy version. The only problem with making a suit for this gir is it would be really really bulky. It did cross my mind though LOL. I would have to make a completely different stuffed animal to have it look good. If I do make one I will post the pattern for that as well Cheesy Thanks for your comments Smiley

First time poster here, and I don't want to sound stupid on the first post, but I can't help myself.  What is a gir?  He looks really cool, even if I don't know what he is!  And would it be totally off the wall to make one with pink?  And why the puppy costume? Huh

Thank you for the pattern.  I'm amazed by all of the talented people on these boards!

I absolutely love your GIR!  I've been pondering how to make a GIR that could be in & out of costume without too much bulk....  I was thinking that the best thing to do would be to make the body as the dog, and the head as the robot, with a hoodie for the dog suit that could be on or hanging off the back.........  I haven't gotten motivated enough to try it yet, though.....   Anyways, I think you did an AMAZING job  Shocked  And thanks so much for sharing the pattern  Grin
