I got my stuff today! Cheesy

It is wonderful! I love it! Thank you so much Ryn!

I got a Nightcrawler pencil case! Eee!! I shall use it constantly when school starts up again!

She also sent an awesome JTHM tote bag! I always use tote bags and this one is SO COOL!

Last, but still amazingly cool, Ryn sent the stencils that she made for these! I can cover everything with them if I want to now, and I am strongly considering it.

Thank you! Cheesy

2  Mermaid Plush the Second in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: December 17, 2011 02:08:17 PM
I made this doll for my fibre class this term. She is entirely hand-stitched. She took a very long time, but I'm very happy with how she turned out. Smiley

She's a different type of mermaid than my first one.

Here's a good shot of her face:

Here's the rest of her:

I did the same general technique I had used on the first one's tail, but instead of lace this time I used some Halloween spider web fabric and also gave her webbing between her arms and body.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

3  Mermaid Plush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: December 16, 2011 12:10:02 AM
I made this mermaid for a class last year. I quite like her. Smiley I'm working on getting her a name still, though.

Her hair got a bit mussed for the picture because she was on an angle and slid a little bit. Her necklace is a bunch of tiny bells. Smiley

This is her tail. It took forever to sew and get right! I think it was worth it though, and I used the same general technique for my more recent mermaid plush who I'll post soon. The whole doll is hand stitched.

Thank you for looking at my mermaid! Smiley

4  Peg Doll Halloween Costume in Halloween Costumes by MayhapMurklins on: November 11, 2011 12:28:45 AM
This year me and my friend decide to go as peg dolls from the most recent season of Doctor Who. Sadly, I couldn't find quite the right fabric to be the one I wanted to from the episode, so instead this had to be me if I were a peg doll.

I made the mask from two separate paper masks, paper clay, and acrylic paints. My mom helped me with the making of the skirt. Smiley I bought the shirt and jacket at a thrift store.

I was so glad it didn't snow a whole bunch for Halloween this year. It didn't snow at all, actually, which was very nice. It still wasn't warm, but I managed to have a few layers so I was fine. The candy haul was pretty good this year, too! Cheesy

5  Pigby Plush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: November 11, 2011 12:09:38 AM
I made this plush version of Pigby for my partner in the Pushing Daisies Swap Round 3. It was such a great swap, I loved it!

I forgot to post these pictures after the swap, but now I've remembered so here he is! He's made of felt and has safety eyes. I'm actually quite happy with how he turned out. I think I'll have to make myself one at some point. Smiley

I tried to be fairly accurate and neat with his spots and such, so it took a decent amount planning and time. Luckily I remembered to trace them before I sent him off. Less luckily, I have no idea where they went, so I will be waiting to make my own until I find them again. It'll happen though! Smiley

Yay! I received today from bastetblue! It's all so great I can't even believe it oh my gosh! I made so many noises of glee when I opened it. I'm pretty sure I giggled like a maniac when I put on my hat.

Here's the group picture (Minus the card, as I was worried it'd blow away. This table is outside.) of my adorable knitted Ned doll in his apron (it has real pockets!) with the petting device and a pie, as well as a super awesome pie hat! I hugged Ned the whole way there and back. He's so great! Cheesy

And the Pie hat with the mini-pie!

The colours aren't 100% accurate here, but that's the best I could manage. You can't tell here but the pie of the pie hat has a knitted pie plate bottom! I tried to get an action shot, but they didn't quite work out with showing it properly and my face not looking weird at the same time. I may try again later. It fits great though and I wore it all the way to the city (I only took it off because my mom informed me that showing off my crazy to a potential landlady should probably not be the first impression). I'm definitely wearing it for the first day of classes this year, though! Cheesy

And finally, an amazing card with one of my favourite quotes on it with an adorable tiny bee where he pauses!

I love it all so much! Cheesy Thankyou!

7  My Lizard-Bird Type Creature in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: June 27, 2011 03:23:25 PM
I made this as a project for a mixed media class in school. We had to do an installation project at our homes, so I made this little guy and put him in the tree in the yard of where I was staying. My teacher didn't seem to think it was a good use of installation, but I was pretty happy with him. Also, it took people about half a minute to see him and he creeped out one of them. Cheesy Personally, I think of that as a successful installation for him. He would sit in the tree without being tied there, but I had to leave him there for a while so I tied him on anyways in case it got windy. None of the pictures from then worked very well and were all blurry, though, so I took these pictures instead.

In fact, they show one of the things I love most about him, which I that he perches nicely on my fingers. Smiley He is made of super sculpey on a tin foil form. Painting him was a pain, since it was done in many thin layers to keep the texture. I also got very picky about colours for a while there. Sadly, my pictures don't quite show the real colours. He is a dark-ish green with lighter green stripes, a yellow-brown beak, and his limbs and belly are brown. Sorry they came out a bit darker in the pictures.

I can't remember what I called him originally, so he gets a very unoriginal title for this post, but oh well.

8  My fairy doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: June 04, 2011 09:05:02 PM
Hi! For this challenge I decided to make a fairy.

I was really excited to work on her wings and I'm acutally really happy with how they turned out.

Also, this is my first attempt at giving a doll joints with buttons. She has them for her arms and wings.

There are a few things I didn't quite get don on her that I would have liked, but I'm happy with her now and may add them later.

Although, from comments from my friend and looking at her now, I think I'll add a second set of smaller wings. Like with butterflies.

In any case, I quite like her and I hope you do as well. Smiley

Also, it's like 10pm so I hope I'm not too late to enter. I figured it was worth a shot anyways?

9  Maskbird Creature Thing in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: November 07, 2010 08:52:44 AM
I made this guy for my mixed media class. It was an 'artifact' project, so we had to come up with a write-up to go along with our projects. One of my friends helped me write it, and it was entirely unrealistic and implausible, ending up with him being from an alternate Earth and using a Doctor Who reference for the date. Smiley

This is the first time I've used sculpey for a school project, and I'm actually quite pleased with how he turned out. I like him. Cheesy

He's mostly made of super sculpey over crumpled or folded aluminum foil. That's the only reason that when his legs broke they didn't come off entirely. Gluing them back together would have been much more difficult without it, I think. The wings are translucent liquid sculpey and wire.

10  Jingle Monster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MayhapMurklins on: November 04, 2010 08:44:42 PM
He has tiny bells on his horns so he jingles! I love that. Smiley

He's pretty small, only about 2 inches tall and made mostly from scrap fabric from other projects.

Since making him I've learned that I'm easily amused. *jingles*
