Would you kindly lower your weapon for a bit..?  You think that's a child down there? Don't be fooled. She's a Little Sister now. Somebody went and turned a sweet baby girl into a monster.

I wanted to do up a real doozy for a feature in a magazine thing I was asked about and sent in over the weekend, and even though I don't have the pattern up just yet, too excited NOT to share photos.  By popular demand and at the behest of the lonely sad Amigurumi Big Daddy in the corner yearning for his pheremone brainwashed little companion to protect, here is the Little Sister! She's in the style of the LS from Bioshock 2 in terms of clothes and hair, as close to scale as I could muster (though her skirt was too long), and has a real goodness gracious ADAM needle (actually yarn needle) in a detachable gas pump handle thingamajigg or whatever they made those out of.  The pattern will be coming out shortly, but I took terrible notes and probably won't get around to making sense of them and posting the pattern until this weekend, but in the meantime here she is.

I wrestled with whether or not to give her a face, because embroidered eyes would have, I think, made her inevitably too emotive and too cartoony to be as truly vacant and out of it as the LSs are, and in the end I think blank works.  Whether or not to age/bloody/tarnish the dolls was another thing I was sort of back and forth on, because they are, in every sense, filthy, bloody, broken messes, products of a dysfunctional society that has tumbled into chaos, but then these are yarn version, not flesh and metals, but 100% cotton, so perhaps models of filthy bloody broken characters, but not bloody or broken themselves.

Perhaps I am getting too philisophical here and should just make with the pics.

The other morning I caught her harvesting Sackboy... we'll have to keep an eye on these two... clearly.

A little bit more info and higher resolution photos at my blog... I'll be posting the pattern there within the next few days http://nerdigurumi.com/2010/04/bioshock-little-sister-amigurumi.html

I think the faceless look is just right for the shells of former human beings that are the Little Sisters.  I love Bioshock, and I love your amigurumi interpretation of these characters.  Are you planning to make any others, like Splicers?

Absolutely amazing! They look like the real thing, they just need a creepy, rusted, flooded backdrop and they'll feel right at home. Or maybe a splicer or two to kill.

you are my new god  Shocked
i'd been planning to make a big daddy this summer (i've been stealing brown and orange yarn from all my relatives in preparation Cheesy) but i might just have to make the little sister first...one of my best friends has a birthday coming up, and she's called Eleanor...naturally, she gets extra-specially creeped out when she plays bioshock 2  Grin
please say you have plans to make a big sister!
