I found the pattern for a Big Daddy bouncer from Bioshock something like a year ago (link to pattern is here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338073.0, very well explained) and I always wanted to do it, but I was a little bit scared at how complex it looks! When I saw that my partner in the Videogame Swap was a Bioshock fan, I knew that I had to shake myself and do it!

So here is my Big Daddy amigurumi!

At first, I had bought yellow buttons for the eyes, but they were too big. I then decided to paint safety eyes red. It took a couple of layers (is layers the right word here? Sorry for my Frenchie English Tongue) but I got them looking like I wanted! In the end, I love the red eyes!

I also had a lot of problems with the wire frame. At first, I tried doing it as it is explained in the pattern, but using embroidery floss over the wire instead of yarn (doing knots like in friendship bracelets). It didn't look good, so I tried just rolling the floss around the wire, and it was even worse! So then I decided to take 2 wire and twist them and then use that to built the frame. It's not as nice as I would want it to be, but I was running out of ideas, so I decided it was good enough!

In the pattern, there is 5 fingers in the left hand, but I was too lazy, so I did a kinda mitten with a thumb.

Here's another shot.

And a last one, just for fun!

I'm really proud of it!

So glad you just went for it! You did a great job - and you are inspiring me to maybe try something that I feel is kinda out of my skill level. I think the wires turned out great! Good job!
