Merry Christmas

I've been very busy on these Christmas' Eve, prepared things for tomorrow and went to Church.
No, there's no party, since my family is a multi-religion family.
Christmas is a special day, but "not that special" in my family.
New Year's eve is more a special day for my family, because every member of my family could celebrate it.
I made this picture on the December 1st, can you read what the amigurumi said?
"ho ho ho it's December"
tomorrow, I will have a vacation with my family, and when I coming back, it'll be no longer December.
So today will be the "deadline" to post this picture.
too bad it didn't work as I planned.
Yeah, you may have guessed that this is the amigurumi I made for the secret project.
so what's the secret project?
La la la... just wait, I don't even know when to reveal it.

Superpocus' Water Nagi

I'm so addicted to Superpocus!

Please blame my boss who invited me to play this game.
Since I'm still in love with this game, I make an amigurumi version of my superpocus pet,
Choo Bee Da Pap, the water nagi.

the little purple (or pink?) thing is a glum, some kind of enemy in Superpocus.
And I think they're kinda cute :D

Ice Spell! thanks to my mother's vase for this cool effect.
Don't tell her I use her vase anyway
Now, check the real picture of Choo Bee Da Pap:

Do you notice there is something wrong on the first three picture?
the real water nagi has spikes!
I didn't notice the spikes, not until I was going to upload the image.
I already got some pictures, and I had put my name on it.
I was planning on making the last photo session with the doll playing Superpocus
then I noticed there's something wrong with the head part!
So I postponed the uploading process, made some spikes, and took another photo session, with a lot of grumbles here and there.
And here is the finished amigurumi version of my water nagi.

yes it is finished.
I knew that Choo Bee Da Pap has a tail, but I'm too lazy too make it.
It's already a nightmare that I have to make a pair of ears.

by the way, Water Nagi, Glum, and Superpocus are copyrighted by Slide Inc

an unnecessary fact: the background for the photo session was my birthday present wrap.
Yes, today is my birthday :D

lonely purple ninja

I'm always confuse when considering to use purple yarn.
I don't hate purple, I like purple.
I just can't imagine amigurumi in purple.
it is just seems weird to thinking of purple animals, while I could easily use pink, orange, or green to make a giraffe.
My sister had googling me some purple real animals, and she told me to make Barney the Dinosaurs.
No way I'm making Barney!
But I have purple yarns, and I thought I have to use it afterall.
So I used it to make a prototype for the next project.
Yes, I'm not making Barney, but I accidentally made a teletubbies !
Then I denied it and told to my self, let's pretend that I made a purple ninja not a teletubbies.
well who do you think he is?

It is said that purple is a color for singles or widows.
So I think purple is for loneliness.
I just watched "Ninja Assasin", and I think it is so lonely being a Ninja.
So it is okay to make a purple ninja amigurumi, right? (*still insisting that I made a purple Ninja, not a teletubbies)

a month without amigurumi

Due to some personal project I was working at, I was almost spent a month without making amigurumi.
I never thought that I would miss or feel bad of not making amigurumi for so long.
I had a few ideas last month, but I just couldn't make it when I wanted it.
My schedule last month are pretty messed up. I had planned on making the secret project, but I hadn't anticipated that I had to work overtime last month. And to made it worse, I got a flu too! I didn't take a day off when I had the flu, and unfortunately I couldn't take a day off last month.
At the end of the month, things were getting better. I got used to the crazy new job at the studio, and I had finished the secret project.
So I spent the last three days of November to make an amigurumi. I finished it before 12.00 pm of the last day of November. Because I thought it would be perfect to post it on December 1st. But ... But... But....
The amigurumi is connected to my secret project, I have to keep it as a secret for a while for the best moment , which I don't know how long is a "while". I miss-counted, so I have to wait to post the pictures of my newest amigurumi.
I hope it is no longer than 2 weeks :(
