Well, hello there little guy. Aren't you a cutie...

Oh no, JELLYFISH STINGERS. RUN.


Don't be afraid! Meet Rupert- Heís a sophisticated gent.

 


How dramatic you look in the high contrast lighting, Rupert.


Unfortunately, when people spy his very feminine hue, they have a tendency to immediately assume he is, in fact, a beautiful madam. In order to combat the general populationís ignorance for his radiating masculinity, he spent three years scouring the seas until he came across a quite suitable top hat. Donít be afraid of his seemingly dangerous tentacles, though; Heís a quite proper and will probably offer you a spot of tea. With a gentleman such as this, youíll be sure to enjoy the company, even if you canít stand the salty flavor of the tea.

And just for fun...since looking at his picture was screaming at me to do a little editing....lol


------------------------------

Now for the technical part.
He was made during pattern testing for EssHaych, here on Craftster. It was a darling pattern, so props to her! Smiley I used a G hook and some Bernat Satin in Sea Shell (How fitting!), as well as a 'tiny bit' of random ww acyclic in rose that I had lying around. After working with EssHaych, we got all the kinks worked out and he came out beautifully. She's absolutely wonderful to work with.

After getting him put together, my boyfriend demanded that he was, in fact, male, regardless of his pinkish hue. [And to think I wanted to add a little bow!] So we decided we couldn't make him any more sexually confused, and made him a little top hat out of a black sheet of fun foam and a little hot glue. He's much happier now. ^_^

If you want to check him out on Ravelry, his page is located HERE

Thanks for looking!

Rupert is so great! I love that he is pink, and a boy, and the top hat is just perfect. The tentacles are such neat little spirals, and he's just so beautifully assembled! Fantastic pattern, and fantastic execution!!
