Lately I have been really obsessed with polymer clays making earrings and other little trinkets.

So I was playing katamari and it finally clicked, duh, I should make earrings!

And thusly these were born:





Sorry if the pictures come out really large, I have yet to master the art of resizing pictures for viewing.

I hope you like them, thanks for looking!   Grin

The size of the pictures is perfect, and your earrings are neat! Only... I don't know what katamari is  Undecided

There is a video game called Katamari Damacy.  Its about this little green guy, the "Prince", and basically you have this ball, the "katamari", and you roll it around these little worlds and it pick things up, which I know doesnt make sense but it is wicked fun.  Grin

Also,  http://craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70397.0 is a better representation of a Katamari.  My earrings are not magnetic not do they pick up things.

I wish they were though, though I suppose that would get weighty after a while...

Thanks for the good feedback.  I cannot wait to bake them and expose them to the public!

I was in class all day waiting to go home to make these:



A bit more colorful and more layers on the nubby things.  I think they look more like a katamari than the first pair though the first pair is a bit more feminine me thinks.  I guess the katamari earrings I wear will reflect my mood for the day!   Grin

I think my next endeavor will be making the prince so I can have a katamari in one ear and a prince or a cousin in the other.  what do you think?  that might be a bit too extreme...

If I knew how to put the Kings music in to type, I sooo would right now.


Maybe some King and Queen earrings perhaps... Grin


I highly recommend making these, SOO easy and soo not time consuming but wickedly cute.

I am obsessed with the game.

Its really terrible that the creator is not going to be making anymore.  Aparently he wants his idea to be unique, and does not want to keep doing it.

Bummer.

Genious!

I want them and I want to play. Now. Kinda. Yeah!
You should definitely make a prince or two to go with the ball thing...
Or some of the stuff that the ball picks up?

They are really pretty, and looks very well made!

Thanks!  I have made a bunch.  Its like, I have a pair for every outfit I own.

I made a pair of the Queen, because even though she is soo minor in the game, I LOVE her.  I was going to try doing a pair of the Prince but I just dont have time now with the last few weeks of school slowly lurking.

I dunno.  There will likely be pictures soon of my other pairs.  I just need to find time to take them!

I got some awesome shrinky dink katamari stuff from a swap a month ago.  when my camera stops acting up i will put up pictures here!

Yeah...well i know the katamari should have like 4 more bumps on it, but i get really anal when it comes to making things look even.  I am kinda OCD.  Also its kinda hard to put all of the bumps off without screweing everything else up.  And trust me, Fimo does not taste like candy, dont ask me how I know that, its a very long story.

 Grin  I once thought maybe I should make little things to stick to the earrings to make them more katamari like, but then I realized they would weight a TON and decided against it.

Yes!

The first time I saw the game I was like "that small little prince thing is rolling around a gobbstopper"

The guy who created this game has to be nuts.  Like, who thinks of making a game like that?
