Cthulhu - The Cutest Elder God

So after about a week, Cthulhu is done and I'm excited. I have been wanting to create one for a while, but I wasn't sure how I wanted to create it. So the other day when I made a Toothless Dragon for my best friends birthday I know I could take (bought the pattern because I waited until the last minute to make the gift why reinvent the wheel) what I learned from creating Toothless and use that to create a Cthulhu.

Every time I create a new pattern I learn new things and that is why I love making stuffies. I love that I can continue to learn and grow and continuously get better.

I put wire in the top of the wings and the tentacles to allow for different movement and to add to the overall affect.

I really love this side shot because so can see the head profile and his cute belly. I was going to give him legs and feet, but I decided that I like him better without. He is about 7 inches tall and 9 inches wide. He was a lot more hand-sewing than I normally do, but as long as he turns out he way I want I could care less if I hand-sew the whole thing. I was going to give him green cat eyes, but I could only find 1 in the size I wanted, so when I tried the yellow ones I was glad I didn't just pick the green and not try anything else.

I hope you love him, because I sure do. I hope he brightened your day.

So I have finally finished my Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap and guess what? I forgot to take any photos, Oh Well. I needed to really buckle down and finish that swap which is why I have been away for a week and a half. Currently I am working on a new project, but for some reason my sewing machine has been acting up when I work on it. I thought I was going to be finished yesterday to show it off, but sadly it is not but I have taken a progress photo to show you what I am working on. 

 I hope my sewing machine starts working right, because I really want to finish this because so far I love how it is turning out.

Han Bacca/ Chewsolo Part Deux

I know that I haven't been posting a lot lately, I have been sick (blah) and busy with a swap that I am doing. I would post the pictures of what I am making for the swap, but I don't want to ruin the surprise if my partner is reading my blog (sorry Calabaza no spoiling the surprise).

When I originally created the Han Bacca it was for a weird stuffie swap. I fell in love with him so much that I had to create one for myself (and maybe add it to my upcoming Etsy shop). I did a few things differently, like instead of the belt being sewn on I glued it on after the fact just a few little things like that to improve Chewsolo.
I almost forgot the red stripe down the side, but it's OK Star Wars fans I caught my mistake, I try and keep my creations as true to form as possible.

I love Hans little belt and belt buckle and Chewy's bag strap with ammo, I just love little details that bring creations to life.

I just love Chewy's Fuzzy face and Hans hair, very 70's and very AWESOME

He is made with a combination of Felt, Fleece, and Fun Fur. The more I use Fun Fur, the better I get at using it, because trust me Fun Fur can be evil. The pattern is of course my Nugget Pattern, I am still not tired of using it, I have plans to make an Admiral Ackbar in the future.

I am glad that I finally sat down and created another Han Bacca/Chewsolo. I hope it brightened your day.

Shark Night 3D and a little Update

This post was suppose to be posted on Sunday, but I woke up so dizzy that I could barely get out of bed so needless to say I did nothing on Sunday and then Monday and Tuesday I really didn't feel good at all. I finally feel good today, so today we will be talking about the Awfully Awsomeness of Shark Night 3D.

When I saw the previews for this movie I was confused as to why is wasn't on the SyFy Channel and why it was actually coming to a theater near you. Then I remembered Piranha 3D and had an "OH" moment, they were basically making another awful awesome scifi movie in 3D for this summer, like they did last summer (Jumping on bandwagon).

First of all I love all those cheesy SyFy channel movies that look like they were made with about $100 dollars or the ones with the $200 budget that stars Tiffany (she was popular before I was born, so I don't really know who she is). I love how bad the acting is and how bad the CG is, basically they helped me spawn the term Awfully Awesome which describes something soooo awful that it is in fact awesome.

If you are going to see Shark Night you have to see it in 3D, they use the 3D effect to their advantage and it actually makes it a little scarier and makes you jump a little more. Unlike other scifi movies the monster isn't on a rampage because it was trapped and is now awakened, it is not an experiment gone wrong, or a government project gone wrong. When they do reveal why the sharks are in the lake you're almost like REALLY that's what you came up with. The movie is only PG-13, but the gore is pretty good for that low of a rating, just know you will have stupid tween in the movie theater with you, in mine they wouldn't stop talking to the screen out loud and whistling at the bikini butt shots even though we went to the 10:00pm showing. If this was a rated R movie there would have been boob shots, but because it was rated PG-13 there were a lot of butt shots to make up for that fact.

Overall the movie is entertaining and does its job, it is scary, it is gory, and overall it wasn't bad. Now paying $13 a person to see it was a little high, but it needed to be seen in 3D. I hope this post was entertaining enough for you especially since it is free, I hope to finish another Han Becca/Chewsolo soon and post it here.
