1  Nightcrawler socked out in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by X-MAN on: August 01, 2009 01:04:32 PM
Recently I got tired of waiting for another craftster in the house to make me a Nightcrawler, which was never going to happen, I had to make my own.  The inspiration of the idea came about from a post of a Beast sock monkey (x-men) I saw, I thought Nightcrawler would look good too.  It took me a while to find the right color materials but I was able to get it all worked out.  This isn't my first X-Men project but it is my first time trying to make a doll.  Please let me know what you think. 

It took me about 10 hours of work but I think it turned out ok.  His hair isn't right yet, but I think the way I made is hair worked out ok for now until I find some other way to do the hair.   

when sitting he is about 12 inches but when he stands he is about 20' (I'm guessing).

I tried to add some features to his face.  I think it helps define the character better.

He does like to just hang around.  I tried many times to make the hand and feet with three fingers and toes but it didn't work out. 

His tail is about 14 inches (again that is a guess).  It wasn't easy getting his tail spaded either.

He really is a good addition to my collection of Nightcrawlers figures.

FYI: For the hair I used the toe end the black socks and cut it to make it look like hair.
(it kinda looks like a durag) 

For the whole project I used two pairs of sock (dark blue and black), an old red shirt (under armor), and some white fabric I got at the thrift shop. The black costume he wears is removable, including the gloves.  If you remove the costume he can be dressed with anything else that would fit a sock monkey (I think).
