Alrighty, for something a little different I thought I would share these little guys. They aren't related to any fandom or anything like that but I think they are super cute and really creative. Made by this very talented lady, it looks like these portal monsters are just the beginning of a series of portal monsters. I can't wait to see what the rest of them look like!
This little monster is my favorite. He is depicting wonder/curiosity. I just love the way she used the embroidery hoop as a portal! And I love the little ripples on the felt where he is popping up. Oh yeah, and I love how he is stabilizing himself with his other hand as he is pulling himself out. All in all, I think the whole thing is brilliant! He is too cute.
I like this one because it shows her crochet work. Most of the other stuff she does is plush (probably felt?) but her little crochet creatures are adorable too. I think this one is a cow/cat hybrid. I like the horns!
This one is called "Believe" and depicts the emotion of hope. I love the gesture! I'm pretty sure that the fingers (and arms?) are made out of pipe cleaners. I love the dangling green pieces.
And here is a new monster--yet to be named, I believe--and the wonder/curiosity monster from earlier. They are friends! Too cute. It looks like the new creature is ripping out of his portal, instead of pushing out like the other one.
Anyway, I thought these were adorable. I never thought of using an embroidery hoop like this, but I think that it is a great new way to look at them. I can't wait to see what new monsters this artist makes! If anyone is interested in anything she sells she does have an etsy store--I thought the birdies were especially cute, but not necessarily geeky. It's worth taking a look, though. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy! Stay tuned!
