God of Cute

So here's one of our new dudes! Hint: he has nothing to do with the kitty. I told you we were really close to finishing him! (I know, I usually overestimate how fast we work, but this time it's actually true). Presenting:
It's Kratos! He was a custom order, and even though we said we'd stop doing those he sounded way to cool to pass up. I made him with silver yarn and then his little tattoos were painted on. He does look kind of innocent, huh? It's his eyes. They're too clear and big and black, they haven't seen enough death. Or something. He certainly has the weapons for a lot of carnage.
And his little chains can unwrap from his arms. The blades can come off the chains too, if you're into that. I also stitched a tiny scar on his right eye, but you can barely see it. He even has a secret item.
Bah! He killed Medusa! The perspective on this shot makes it look like her head is huge, but it's not really that big. I think the little snakes are really cute, they're just a chain stitch that I twisted into a little curly lock of evil.

Anyway, it was so much fun making little Kratos. I think he can be bloodthirsty and adorable at the same time. I hope you guys like him! Stay tuned for the kitty-related dude, coming soon.

How do you get the arms so thin and not sticky-outy?

I think it has to do with how you attach the arms to the body. If you lay the top of the arms flat against the body and sew it on, they won't really stick out. Plus, they're only about 7 stitches around, so they're not too big anyway. Hope that helped!
