A friend (and guildmaster) saw a stuffed voidwalker (from the MMORPG, World of Warcraft) on Etsy which had been linked from WowInsider. He was really sad to learn that there were only 2 available. Weeks later he was still talking about it... so I decided to make one for him, since I am the most craft-capable guild member. This is what I ended up with:

I had never even tried making a stuffed toy before so it was a bit of a challenge. Not to mention that the blue fur was a total pain to work with, and shed tiny blue bits of fuzz all over my apartment and INSIDE MY SEWING MACHINE. I improvised the pattern, although I would be happy to explain how I did it if anyone else is trying to make one of these for a sad guild master/boyfriend/husband/self. The voidwalker's "base" is actually a plastic cup from the dollar store, covered with grey tissue paper and then wrapped in some black gauze (and secured with about 10 cubic inches of hot glue). He can come out of it, but doesn't stand up by himself. (So you can demonstrate his attacking and aggro-holding capabilities, lol)

A close-up of his gauntlet, which was my favourite part to make:

The "jewels" are scrapbooking brads (dollar store again!) and I "mounted" some of them inside grommets to make them look bigger and more elaborate. It was a really fun project!

A few days later, my friend opened up free repairs from guild bank funds. So it was worth it.  Wink

Oh my goodness!  Shocked

I love this!

I think it's fabulous considering you didn't use a pattern or anything!  Much kudos to you and i r uber jealous of your GM <3

Very cute, I really should make something WoW related for my husband, he'd go nuts for something like this (although would probably prefer a Succubus). Grin

All I have to say is :


Lol.  I would adore one of these.  My husband would get a kick out of him.  All of our guildies/friends would prolly brag about one of these forever!  Awesome idea, and you are one of the bestest guildmates EVER!

Aww, thanks everybody!

I think my next wow-related project will be a murloc, but I haven't quite figured out how to do it... they have those gangly little legs. Coat-hangers maybe??

OMGAWESOME!!!! my best friend's a warlock and he'd just LOVE that. we call his voidwalker "teddy bear" because he looks so fluffy in all his blueiness LOL

can't wait to see what you come up for a murloc! I personally love the blue moths in the draenei area, would die for one of those

My hubby thought it was pretty amazing.  We're both WoW junkies too.  Good luck with the  murloc, btw.

I literally laughed out loud when I saw this. Cheesy I want to hug him and squeeze him and call him George, ha ha! Man, do I miss playing WoW...

You should make just a pair of the gauntlets like when they disappear. Smiley

Great job!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Awesome!! I think I saw that same voidwalker on Etsy as well.  I think you got the body shape down a little better than the other person. Envy....I totally want to make one now!

We live in a rainbow of chaos

this is the greatest thing ever!  If you don't mind sharing the improvised pattern, I'd be glad to see it!  I wish my hubby was a 'lock, it might not be quite the most appropriate xmas gift for a Warrior/paladin/drooooood.  But I think he'd think it was cool none the less. 
I can't wait to see the Murloc.
Pressing this rocks!

Don't look back, you aren't going that way.
