Awesome!!! My hubby requested that I make the set for him a while back now.  Where did you get your green variegated yarn? I LOVE all the details you put in to the weapons and outfits, great job!!!

The yarn is called Noblesse from Zitron. I got it at my LYS.

Like everyone else, i love them!!   But I have one tiny technical question...  How did you get them to stand up?!  I've crocheted a few small things like these and generally end up leaning them against a wall or book or something...  Case in point, my zombie:http://tossedcookies.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/zombie1.jpg  Sorry for the blog link, but I just realized I never put these on Craftster...

Anyways, thank you for any help you can give!

Toothpicks.

I used toothpicks to prop them up and made sure they couldn't be seen in the picture. They don't stand up on their own so I used to toothpicks to brace them. I hope this helps!

They're amazing work! I've literally started to crochet this week and am wobbling and un-picking my way through some kind of scarf. Seeing the awesome projects like this is really inspiring me to keep at it... soon, my pretties, soon!

WOW these are SOO cool!  You've given me the best idea for my boyfriend's birthday (he just got back from Comic-Con and tracking down the TMNT Tour Bus).  Amazing work!

Brilliant!  I've heard everything from double sided tape to actually stitching them to a surface...  Toothpicks sound so much nicer to the yarn.  Thank you!
