(picture taken by my friend Haley ^_^)

ADD: Sheeple were mentioned in an interview with the guys! HOLY MOTHER!

ALSO: here is a link to the clip of the scene with said "inspired" dolls

 Cheesy



Yis I crocheted something FOTC related.
I made these little gifts for Bret and Jemaine in honor of a show that they had at this venue in LA called Largo.
The show was listed as the "1st National International New Zealand Day"

It was a special occasion and I thought i would make them something special...
I found this patter on etsy from a very lovely seller by the name of Owlishly
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=14022550

and I thought... OH MY HOW APPROPRIATE!!! I MUST MAKE THIS!
So this is what I came up with......


Here is a picture overload of my Bret and Jemaine sheeple

FYI (sheep + people = sheeple)
that term was invented by my friend Roxy ~_^









I felt like they were missing something so last min I decided to make them their favorite instruments.


I made Bret's Casio DG-20


and I made Jemaine's Omnichord


The instruments look WAY BETTER from afar LOL

the instruments were made from this clay that you bake so it can harden.

I am quite proud how it all came out Cheesy



Wanna know what the best part is about this creation??
Well I made it for Bret and Jemaine yis?

The awesome part is that I got to deliver these little Bret and Jemaine sheeple......

personally....














BACKSTAGE O_O.







it was super embarassing but TOTALLY RAD!!!!!!!

possibly the most exciting thing to ever happen to me...
no wait it was the most exciting thing to ever happen to me hahaha.

It was pretty cool ^3^








EDIT: ROLLCALL: Murray, Present

I was supposed to make Rhys a sheeple as well, but I was unsure if he was going to be at the show or not. I have stuck to my word and I made him one.




I am sending it to a friend of mine who is going to one of his stand up shows in Philly. She is going to deliver it to Rhys for me ^3^.

I absolutely LOVE Rhys Darby, and I think I am going to miss this little sheeple the most. I seriously look at him and can't help but hug and kiss him.

I hope Rhys loves him as much as I do Smiley

ADD:
My friend HALEY EFFIN ROCKS!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE HER!

It's too dark to see anything, but you can hear Rhys giving me a shoutout! *dies*

They are even more adorable and irresistible than the real guys, bravo! I sooo wish I was capable of crocheting something this awesome.
I'm curious, what did they say when you gave the sheople to them? I can just picture them staying completely in character the whole time, acting all awkward and then bursting into random song, hehehe

Aww wow!

I've not seen much of Flight of The Concords because British TV scheduling seems to be pretty erratic and some twerp put it on BBC3 which is the single worst TV channel ever (grumble grumble grumble) but what I did see was brilliant! I wish I'd seen what this relates to :-(


Also, your amigurumi is like...perfect! Mine's never so good.

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.
