Sackboy - Knitted project

17th September 2009 (17:34)
creative

current mood: creative

Ever the creative soul and being a person who enjoys making handmade gifts, for a friends recent birthday I made him a Sackboy knitted replica doll ^^
(and in case anyone actually doesn't know, Sackboy is a character from the game Little Big Planet)

It took longer to knit than I thought it would but I'm very pleased with the results and he is very loved by his owner :D

So I thought I'd share some photos of my little Sackboy. (I have posted these on my facebook also, so sorry if anyone is seeing them twice lol)

More photos under the cut - inc Sackboy's adventures in the park!Collapse )

Ame Con 2008

17th August 2008 (21:11)
okay

current mood: okay

Yeah finally got round to this lol

No big report this year tho, unlike last years, as I'm lazy and can't be bothered xD lol (plus, I dunno, I feel I have less to say lol). I've decided to put all my photos up onto a big photobucket post:

Mine: http://s538.photobucket.com/albums/ff345/mydarkelfwings/Ame%20Con%202008/Dark%20Elf/

Simons: http://s538.photobucket.com/albums/ff345/mydarkelfwings/Ame%20Con%202008/Gogul/

Password = photoswithin

I didn't take many pictures this year either compared to prev years. No particular reason, I just didn't seem to.


So, Ame con this year then. Had a good time :) but I have to say it felt lacking compared to last years. I don't know if it actually was but there seemed a lot less on than in prev years Ame Cons. The photoshoot was a nice touch, I liked that and am looking forward to seeing those photos - as I missed out on it last year.

Our posse this year was our usual ^^ me, Clare curiousciel, Jenny jenniekitty, Kelly darktwinkle and this year my Simon came too ^^ and Donna joined us too dark_persian and so did Jessi kurenai_tenka :D

I enjoyed wearing all my cosplays tho it was hard work on the saturday trying to wear two different cosplays and having to switch between them both so much for the competition and the masquerade - meant I was carrying a LOT of bags lol.

The competition was fun, got to meet a few new people, and my Ivy sadly didn't get anywhere at all in the comp. Ah well. I guess if I'm truly honest then yeah I'm a bit dissapointed about that but what can u do. The top spot winners were v good, congrats to them :)
Will I enter the comp again next year? I dunno, probably not. I keep doing it year after year and tbh this year Ivy was pretty much my pinicle - I put a LOT into that costume (2yrs on and off to be exact) perfecting every pinpoint detail, unstitching and re-doing anything I wasn't happy with, sourcing for months to get exatcly what I wanted for it, spending hours doing hand embroidering, and yeah, after all that it is a little crushing tbh. But still, she may not have won any places in the competition but she certainly won some hearts ^^ and she definatly has mine. I think my Ivy outfit is always going to one of my faves ^^ no matter what else I make or how more complex. She was a labour of love and trial to endure. I am extremly proud of my Ivy costume.

I'm certianly going to wear my Ivy again at some point as I feel it would be a shame not to ^^ I had fun wearing her despite how hot it was being in sooo many layers and having to be stood around for hours waiting (as usual at cons lol) in 4inch heels LOL. Aww I'm telling u, my feet were killing me after the con due to wearing my Ivy boots and my Re-l boots.

The masquerade was great fun, Soul Calibur group ftw! :D we rocked eh guys? hehee. Grouping with u guys was great odangochan seraphim_cry and Lunar_Kitten
I definatly going to do another SC cosplay for next year.

I am starting to get very dissapointed in the dealers rooms at cons. I find myself spending less and less as what they have is getting less specialised and more of what I can just buy in my highstreet :/ (or is just an overpriced knockoff from china lol)
It's a big shame that Drama Queen seemed to have just dissapeared off the face of the earth too cos then at least we used to have specialist manga. Plus we had a fun panel from them :) Plus...I want more DVD manga damnit!! Dx

It was fantastic to see everyone again! :D *hugs u all* and to get to hang out with some of u more than I have been able to previously. To me that's one of the best things about the cons, hanging out with ur friends and meeting the friends u get to see less often. Plus I made a few new friends and got to know a few others better. A year till the next con is just so far away.

Sadly tho I didn't manage to find everyone, bleh, but that's bound to happen.

I'm looking forward to seeing the photoshoots I had done ^^ - the convention one for my Ivy, the one I had done for my Nana by Seraphim_Cry and my Re-l Mayer photoshoot done by Jessi (Kurenai_Tenka)

So here's to next year! *clinks glasses with everyone* ^^ (Which is hopefully an Aya Con, ooooh shiny! yay!)
