21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Jack Sparrow, Boba Fett, Roy Mustang! on: May 14, 2008 07:32:31 PM
Alright guys, I've been a little quiet here lately, so here are some pics of my newest creations!
Here's our newest creation, Captain Jack Sparrow!  I think he has the most accessories on him out of any of the characters we've made so far.  He's pretty crazy looking with so much stuff, but I think he looks perfect!

I think his hair is my favorite part.  It has so many beads and baubles and stuff in there.  His hat and jacket can both come off too--I wouldn't recommend taking the bandanna off, I hear Jack doesn't shampoo his hair very often.

And here's another guy we finished a while back, Boba Fett!

He's almost completely sculpey-based, with just his body being amigurumi and his belt being felt.  The boyfriend, as always, did the sculpey work, and I think it's amazing.  The helmet can come off too.  Here's a detail on one side of his body:

And lastly, Roy Mustang, from Fullmetal Alchemist!  I wasn't sure that an anime character would turn out very well (because Leela was such a mess), but I think he's adorable!  I'm so happy with how he turned out.  We're working on an Ed Elric right now, I can't wait until he's finished!

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot!  I have a free pattern on my blog for a spice weasel lip balm cozy (it's not as confusing as I make it seem, I swear).   Here's the link:  http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2008/04/spice-weasel-pattern.html

I'm slightly addicted to making these now. I'm almost out of safety eyes.
Have I told you lately how much I love these guys? and how awesome you are for sharing the pattern?

Thanks again.

No problem!  Feel free to post pics here, if you want, of the little guys you make, I love seeing what everyone comes up with!

PS--I always ran out of safety eyes too--I always cleaned out Hobby Lobby whenever they restocked.  Then I just ordered them online.  It's much cheaper (about .20 cheaper per bag of 4) , shipping was free (over $25) and I don't think I'll run out for at least a year.

Awesome. Awesome.  So awesome.  I recognized the Hitchhikers Guide reference immediately.  You are awesome.  That is all I can say right now.  So cool.

Wonderful - technical question - what did you use to crochet the chain mail? Wire?

No, it wasn't wire, it was silver thread but it is thicker than regular crochet thread.  It's still pretty hard to work with, though.  Sorry I can't be more help, I never keep labels! It's a bad habit.

CUTE!  I love these little guys.  I think r2 is my favorite (duh) but I love them all.  Great job, you must have a lot of patience for really tiny work!

My vote is for gloss, at least to protect them.  I wouldn't want the little guys to get scuffed up.

I LOVE Futurama...
love your Zoidberg.
did you make a pattern along the way ore is it ind free hand..

great work

I kind of freehanded it, I went off of my human patterns at geekcentralstation.blogspot.com and just altered whatever I thought needed to be fixed, like the claws.

Thanks everyone!

He's cute!  I love his little googly eye.  My boyfriend wants one now.

they are all awesome...your bf did a wonderful job with the witch king armor, and i love aragorns hair, zoidberg looks good too as does kiff....how long did it take you to do LOTR characters

All of the little guys take about 4-5 hours to complete each.  The Futurama ones were pretty easy, they went pretty fast. because they don't have many complicated things on them.  The other Lord of the Rings guys took a long time though, because we like to put in as much detail as we can.

Alright guys, my next installment of amigurumi dudes:  Futurama!

First off, Zoidberg!  He has a little head mirror and stethoscope.  I found this color in my local yarn store and I just knew that it would be perfect for him.  I think he's so cute!  I love his little face tentacle thingies.  He also has claws, even though you can't see them really well in this pic.

And Kif!  I think his uniform turned out really well.  He was pretty easy to make, I just modified my human patterns a little bit.  He's just sugar 'n cream yarn, I like the electric green color.

And now, some custom orders that we just finished--I think these guys are super awesome.

Here is the Witch King of Angmar!  He has a little tattered coat (well, 3 coats actually) and a really cool sculpey head armor thingy that my boyfriend made.  He also, of course, comes with accessories.

He has his sword AND his mace.  You know, he needs all the help he can get wreaking havoc on humanity.

And then we have King Aragorn:

This version is from the end of "The Return of the King" when Aragorn rides up to the black gates.  My boyfriend painted the tree of Gondor on his coat (and all of the stuff on his coat, actually) and I crocheted the chain mail around his arms.  I think he turned out super cute. 

Anyway, let me know what you guys think!  As always, I have a TON more pictures over at my flickr if you guys want to see more. 

I also posted a short hair tutorial over at my blog, if anyone is interested.  It just shows how I made the hair for characters like Indy, Han, Luke, and anybody like that.

Be sure and let me know what you guys think!  I'm really proud of these guys, and I'm grateful I can show them off here!
