Ouran Host Club from: Ouran Host Club Size: 4.5-5 inches (10-13cm) Media: Crocheted
Even though the character designs of the Ouran fellows is pretty simple, it felt like it took forever to make the whole gang.
Their bodies got pretty repetitive to make; the fun (though sometimes frustrating) part to do was their hair. I tried out the sew in hair technique I saw at Owlishly's [link] which is really good for characters with neat tidy hair. Their expressions was fun to do to <3
My younger sister wanted to nick Bun-bun so I had to sew him to Honey's hand D:<
Layton & Luke from: Professor Layton series Size: Layton 6 inches (15cm), Luke 4.5 inches (12cm) Media: Crocheted
These two were fun to make, especially Layton with his massive-somehow-always-stays-on-his-head top hat. I didn't make Luke until much later then Layton, since I wasn't sure how I'd go about making Luke's hair. After making the Ouran Host and learning how to sew hair on, I finally made him.
I ended up having to use leftover merino wool for his belts and man bag, since I didn't have any acrylic wool in that reddish brown tone.
Went back to working on an old pattern (Tereeesa), I guess Ginko here be the final result of it. I was going to do his green coat outfit at first, but I liked his winter attire more... ...though, he has so many coats, I wonder where he keeps them all?
I made these two as a birthday gift for a big Popo & Nana fan who kicks my SSBB butt on a more-then-I'd-like basis. The fluffy white yarn I used on them was a headache to work with at times, but it was well worth it in the end.
They can't remove their hoods since, er, I have no idea what they have under there (probably just hair I know, but you never know).
Pitviolent angel-- hi yaa! from: Super Smash Brothers Brawl/Kid Icarus Size: 7 inches (17.5cm) Media: Crocheted x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x
I wanted to experiment making wings, so I made my favourite fighter from Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
Pit was quite fidgety to make, since he's the first character I've made who doesn't have symmetrical clothing, so it was a nice challenge. His robes are removable, but obviously I had to sew his laurels into his head.
Katara from: Avatar: The Last Airbender Size: 5 inches (13cm) Media: Crocheted
Just had this random urge to make someone from the Avatar. At first, I wanted to make my favourite character, Iroh, but at the same time I wanted to practice doing more long haired characters. So I chose to make Katara instead, since she has those cute hair-dangly-loopie thingies (as Sokka calls them).
I pondered a lot if there was a way to crochet so that you could have one colour on one side, another on the other side. When I finally figured a way, I chose to try it out on Gin. It worked quite nicely, but was a complete mess of loose ends; took forever to sew them all in. I made Rangiku afterwards, since I was quite curious how I'd handle making a, er... chest-heavy character. I tried to curl her hair but it didn't work since the wool I used for her hair's not suitable for curling.
