I had been planning for a while to crochet the cast of Left 4 Dead 2.  When my boyfriend told me about this contest at Shacknews, I knew I had to start crafting right away to meet the 2-week deadline.  I started with Rochelle because she's the character my boyfriend plays.  I burned a few days worth of time crocheting a version with poseable legs and arms that I had to scrap because it would not stand on its own. Sad  This is the final version:

I was going to leave Gnome Chompski for the Ellis ami (I play Ellis and I had to carry him throughout the entire campaign when we did the achievement) but I was running out of time so I decided to focus all my efforts on making this Rochelle ami as awesome as it could be.  It was so nerve-wracking baking the gnome!  This is my first time sculpting a figurine and I was afraid he would explode in the toaster oven...


I found out today that I am one of the 20 finalists, but the winners will not be posted until next week.  So nervous!  Lips sealed

Thanks for the support everyone!  My boyfriend and friends keep telling me I have a really good chance but they are all biased imo.  It's nice to hear it from other people too. Smiley  I am already very excited and happy about being in the top 20.  Even if I do not place for a prize, I will still have some very cute L4D2 amis decorating my bookshelf. Cheesy

They posted the winners today!  I won second place!  Grin First place and third place went to my two favorite entries so I am happy about the recognition they got too.

I can't wait to see what's in the Mystery Shack Pack ><!
