I recently did a personal swap (yey!) and for it we had three themes; Lenore, Alice In Wonderland and My Neighbour Totoro. Another part of the swap was that everything had to be steampunked in some way. So here is one of them Smiley


The soot sprite from My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away. Since my partner wanted a steampunk theme, I decided to give him a pair of flying goggles. Now he is ready for his time hiding away on dirigibles.

The soot sprite himself is crocheted while the goggles are made from tops and an old leather belt I cut up, the head band is a brass chain. Acrylic paints aged the lenses.

This guy is honestly the cutest, squishiest buddy ever and I absolutely adore the goggles. He has a good home with lots of corners and walls to sneak around in Smiley

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.
