Hihihihi nerd gamers!~  Cheesy

I've been a bit busy with life (you know how it is) and have been neglecting Craftster, but I missed this craftalong too much to stay away forever. Wink  I hope it's okay to drop in so close to the end of the game.

Oh, have to say; I am LOVING the whole Choose your own adventure vibe going on this time!! Super nifty! I find myself trying to decide what doll could fit what prompt and letting that be the deciding factor in who is made in what order, haha.

So many amazing projects posted, too. Love this thread - always so much crafty goodness and inspiration. ^__^

So.. 1,2,3...project dump!  Cheesy

(all dolls in the one post)

Brief Description: This is Joel, from the video game The Last of Us.
I decided to try my hand at designing dolls, having them printed, and stitching them up. So they're sort of a cross between art/design and dollmaking.

Brief Description: And this is Sarah, also from The Last of Us video game. I had a lot of fun making her printed fabric design - especially her tshirt. I eyeballed the shirt she wore in the game and tried to recreate it from scratch. Rather chuffed at how it turned out.

Project Name: Harley Quinn doll
Project Link: -
Brief Description: Harley took a lot more hand-sewing than my usual dolls; having to stitch up those pigtails were just impossible by machine - they kept trapping all the fur fibers in the seams, so I ended up doing a few rounds of hidden stitch before attaching them to her head (again, by hand Wink).

Brief Description: This grumpy dude is Danny "Danno" Williams from Hawaii Five-0. Cutting out the printed fabric pattern pieces is always a bit of tense exercise for me; with so little seam allowance, and knowing if I accidentally slip, I have to re-order fabric and wait another 5-10 days before I can continue with the project.

2  Printed Plush!~ (x5!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: August 04, 2017 03:37:00 AM
Hihihi, Craftster peeps, long time no visit. ^_^

I'm getting back in the Craftster loop and thought I'd share my newest obsession.... printed plush.  They are designed in photoshop and printed up (Spoonflower) and then sewn together. I thought I'd throw all my current dolls up in one post, rather than make a bunch of new posts. Smiley

So.. first up, Miss Harley Quinn, decked out in her Suicide Squad best;

(and I had to include a shot of her hair, I'm just rather stoked with it, hee).

And these guys are Steve and Danny from Hawaii Five-0

...and this is Sarah & Joel from the video game The Last of Us..

Each one is about 12inches tall, and has various faux furs for their hair. ^__^  
Thanks for reading!~

I received the most fabulous package from Acadian Driftwood. I literally squealed when I saw what was in the package.  Grin

First, there was this super cute hand drawn Harry/Luna bookmark. Love it! And it will come in handy as I've just started a new book. Cheesy

And the Pièce De Résistance, the most amazing Captain America/Winter Solider (Steve/Bucky♥) shirt.

(Sorry about the messy bed pic, I was rushing to snap a pic so I could put it on and never take it off Tongue)

Close up of the amazing hand stitched applique and detail work of the combined shield;

Thank you, thank you, thank you AD. I cannot fathom how much time went into this piece of wearable art; you completely outdid yourself (and my shippy heart totally appreciates it!)

I'm in love with my package from Roler. She made me the cutest lil mushroom pouch (complete with mushrooms on front, back and even mushroom fabric inside!~  Cheesy) and the most amazing bunny hoop.  Shocked I adore fantastical creatures that take on elements on their surroundings, and I amazed at how you created this magnificent hoop; you completely outdid yourself, Thanks Roler!~

6  A Newt in the hand.. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: March 23, 2017 02:07:59 AM
..is worth two in the bush. No, wait. That's birds. Well, I'm sure he's worth a lot, anyway. Wink

Guess who saw Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them recently? That would be me. And guess who fell in love with Newt? Yep, also me.   I forgot how much I missed being immersed in the HP-verse.

Anyway! I do what I always do when I add another fictional character to my "adore" list; I plushify them!~

This time I decided to shrink him down a bit (must have been inspired by the Occamy) to fit into my hand. A palm-sized plush! He's about 6 inches when seated, and about 7.5 inches from head to toe.

Here he is, toward the end of his creation, just missing the top stitching on his coat, his suitcase and his ears.

(side note: why is it so hard trying to take a picture of yourself holding something? Stupid awkward angles.)

And this is once I added ears.....

And the coat & case....

So now he's ready to go and find some more friends to go in his suitcase!~

I just opened the most precioussss package from the wonderful Roler!

Feast your eyes on these fabulous wall artses, precious, and a mini Gollum feltie who is now the guardian of my sewing machine (he fits perfectly against the secondary spool holder and my bobbin winder, haha).

I am so in awe of how you made the one ring on these! Such cleverness.
Thank you so much, Roler - they are all amazing (and totally worth the wait! Wink )

Prompt:  Battle Royale : March - The Catcher In The Rye
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: The Half-Blood Prince
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451820.0
Brief Description: Google tells me The Catcher in the Rye is filled with teenage angst. I think this relates well to Snape, who definitely had much angsting in his teenage years (and into his adult life, but hey that's another prompt entirely..)

(if this is much too vague, let me know and I can just change it to a free-range crafting prompt, lol. I want to try and complete as many prompts this season as I can, but I haven't read either book so I'm kinda winging it. Wink )

Just spent a good while scrolling through all the amazing projects already turned in. Loving that hoop (gorgeous colours!) and those bracelets are amazing ("A woman's place is everywhere" = utter perfection)!

One of my resolutions this year was to be more crafty, so I'm going to try and use the prompts from both the Nerdy games and the HP craftalong to inspire and push me to craft more. (Let's see how long it lasts..  Wink ) So for my first assignment..

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
SPEW: --
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: The Potions Master
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451820.0
Brief Description:  I saw Fantastic Beasts recently and it got me in full-on HP mode again. Snape is my favourite character in the series so he was a natural choice for me when I needed a subject to test some of my pattern edits -- and he's the natural choice for a House Unity prompt!~

Annd I am a little rusty so please do correct me if I've botched anything.

10  2 Snapes are better than 1!~ in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Noxika on: March 08, 2017 07:45:20 PM
After seeing Fantastic Beasts recently, I've shifted into full-on Harry Potter mode again. My favourite character is Snape, so when I decided to play around and tweak some of my usual doll patterns, he was the perfect subject.

I always flop back and forth over what style appeals to me the most; super chibified or stylized realism. So... I did what I love to do; refuse to make a decision and craft both styles instead, because clearly two Snapes are better than one!~ Wink

This is Snape version 1:
He's 13inches, made of suedecloth and various fabrics (whatever had the right feel and draping properties in my stash cupboard). Faux fur for the hair and hand-painted eyes..

Oh, and a basic armature in his arms to allow him to be gently posed..

Annndd.. Snape version 2:
Super chibi! He's 13.5 inches, made of suedecloth and a variety of fleece fabrics. Faux fur hair -- which made me have to completely rework my head pattern because the bigger the head, the shorter the pile of the fur appears. I also gave him oversized individual fingers to go with the oversized feet and head. His eyes are needle felted; I usually do a darker colour of their eyes around the outside, but being black it kind of voided that idea..

Sorry about the photos -- black on black on black is surprisingly difficult to photograph. Tongue
