Prince of Persia!

All right everyone, time for our newest creations! Behold:
It's the Prince and Farah from the Sands of Time game. Aren't they adorable? I think they both turned out really well for being mostly half naked.
I do like the Prince. I always thought it was really funny how he always seemed to lose an article of clothing throughout the game. We were going to make him fully clothed, but he doesn't really look like himself when he has all those clothes on, you know? I like that he doesn't have any froufy head scarves, either, like in the newest game. He was kind of annoying.

Anyway, this prince has his dagger of time and two swords. He can only wear one at a time, but it never hurts to have extras lying around.
And here is little Farah. Those white poofy things on her left side are the feathers of her arrows. She has a quiver hanging off of her belt. This picture doesn't show it too well, but she has lots of dangly gold chains around her too. I really like the way her top came out, it's just two different colors of felt but I think it actually looks really drapey and natural looking, it hardly looks like felt at all. I think her earrings are adorable.

Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments! Stay tuned for more really cool stuff coming up soon.

This rocks! No, really, it does.

Check it out!

It's a boom box AT-AT! How cool is that? There's actually very little information I could find out about it, like if it needs to be plugged in or if it really works or anything like that. The main site is here and while it has cool pictures, there are no details about who made it or anything like that.
The pictures are pretty though! I'm sure if it was for sale it would cost a fortune.

Anyway, new dudes are done! I'll be posting pictures either today or tomorow, so stay tuned!

Cute little pictures

Hey all! Just a really quick little post, I wanted to show everyone these little adorable paintings I found on flickr.
I think this one might be my favorite:

I love how it looks like he's singing. And happy.

He's so smug looking! All of the people in these sets have very expressive eyebrows.

Look at how cute artoo is! Aww, he's so tiny and adorable.

Anyway, that's it for now! You should check out this guy's flickr page, he's got some pretty cute stuff on there. Stay tuned, more stuff coming soon!

Happy VD!

This has got to be the best Valentine's Day card ever. Found over at Craftster by user whateverjames, made for his wife.
PS-Please note that the little hearts are curved lightsabers. Brilliant! Hope everyone has a good Valentine's Day and no one ends up with VD.

WHY didn't anyone tell me about this?

Come on people! Look at this adorable R2D2!!!

Look at his little silver holoprojector! And his little shiny eye!
Look at the shiny buttons!
So anyway, I like shiny buttons on crochet R2D2s. I couldn't really find any information on the person who made it (all I could find is an article here which is mostly people whining about wanting this little guy as much as I do) but it was posted almost 6 months ago! Jeez, I'm out of the loop. I would try making one myself, but this one is too daunting! Look at how cute his little retractable leg is. I don't think I could do that.

Anyway, enough whining, I hope everyone can just sit back and admire this little guy. Stay tuned!

A wampa that won't eat your arm

Well, hopefully. I made these for someone at work (she's not pregnant yet, but I wanted to get started early on adorable baby stuff). I used this pattern for the feet and I winged the hat--which was a pain. First I made it too small and I had to make another one, and then the brim wasn't large enough, and the yarn was a pain to rip out. But anyway, I finished it and it is so cute and soft and I wanted to share!
I just put the eyes and teeth in for the picture, because obviously the eyes would have been poking the baby's head, and I thought it would be cuter without the teeth looking like they were eating the baby's head. I think the monster booties are my favorite. You would not believe how soft the yarn is!

Anyway, that's it for now. We're working on a really exciting custom order, hopefully it will be done soon (if I can ever get over this stupid cold). Stay tuned!

Fava Beans and Yarn

Alright, here's our latest custom order! He's kind of creepy, but I think he retains enough cuteness to not be totally creepy. Almost. He's pretty simple, as far as our dudes go, but I think he captures the essence of Hannibal really well.

Okay, he's pretty creepy. Lecter isn't really allowed to have any accessories (beside the very stylish face mask) because everyone knows what he can do with his teeth, let alone any accessories. The boy was able to make a little extra thing for him, though:

He did get a little picture of Florence to hang in his cell. And, as you can see here, his little face mask is removable, for those times when he's safely behind three inches of bulletproof glass. Anyway, hope you enjoy him!

Scarf Hero

Once again, I curse this stupid Texas weather! It's February, when people are knitting ridiculously cute smittens or blankets or sweaters (not like I have the patience to do any of those things, but still! Options are nice and it is 75 degrees in my apartment right now!) Anyway, the point is that this scarf is awesome but there is only about a 2 week window in Texas in which I can wear it which I probably wouldn't do anyway because I'm not cool enough to pull it off. Anyway, enough rambling, look at pretty picture!
That's right, it's a Guitar Hero scarf! You can read more details from the woman who made it on Craftster. Suffice to say, though, it's made out of crochet and then each of the lines were painstakingly hand sewed on, as well as all of the little button presses. She used a chart (from the Muse song "Knights of Cydonia") to know where to put all of the little buttons. I think it's ingenious. Very cool. Or in this weather, very hot. Stay tuned, we have a new dude done! Pictures coming within the next day or so. Stay tuned!
