Boo the Humpty Dumpty Boy

I've posted this picture last month, but I haven't posted the story, right?
This is Boo, a Humpty Dumpty
No, Boo is a Boy, a common boy.
Boo is the main character from my latest animation:
Boo& Bey's Ways To Save The World
the animation was an entry for CGS' Multimedia Contest

Well since it is a knitting blog, let's talking bout the Boo-gurumi.
I made it in a few days, from the last week of November till the first of December.
I made it of course to promote my animation, just in case there I need some vote :D
Well I didn't win, I never used Boo-gurumi to get some votes, but no regrets.
Made Boo-gurumi as similar as Boo in the animation is quite an achievement for me.

Mr Tooth Froggy

I don't know about winter, summer, spring or autum, my favorite season is the rainy season.
I love umbrella, I love the rain, and I love frogs!
I love their song, and I love how they are boosting up their "ribbit" energy to call the rain :D

I have made 2 frog amigurumis before, both are based on someone else pattern.
The giant frog was actually my very first amigurumi I ever made. See, this is the only time I ever use gigantic yarn for amigurumi. The pattern was from here. The picture below is officially his first picture. You could see the second frog here.

For my third frog, I made him by my own version.
The Grinning Frog, or I love to call him Mr Tooth Froggy.
I accidentally get this idea when making sketch of my self for mini me
... OOPS NO! I'm not a frog!

Somehow, instead of using yarn, I wanted to make the teeth by "real teeth".
I failed of course, because no body voluntary give their teeth.
So I made the teeth by clay.
It took a lot of time, from asking my cousin cause I know nothing about clay, waiting for the weekend to buy the clay, and finally learning to make the teeth.
I'm not good at waiting, but I really love the result, the perfect white teeth, soon I'll make another amigurumi like this.
Just wait, hopefully I still have some time to make amigurumi after the crazy daily work at the studio.... Hu hu hu... T-T

Mini Me

So there's a forum in Live Journal called "We Love Amigurumi".
You could've guess by its name, it is a forum for amigurumi lover.
There is an activity called "amigurumi-along" which means making amigurumi based on the themes. And this January's theme are seasons or mini me.

I pick the mini me, because I think it is a perfect theme for a new month in a new year, since all I'm thinking this January is me, myself and I.
why? Because when I am making my new years resolutions, I must considerate and think about myself, right?

Well, this mini me is only represent about 30% of my real me.
First, mini me is just about 7cm while me a lot taller.
I don't have the right yarn color for my skin tone, mine is a lot darker than mini me's skin tone.
I always wear glasses. I tried to make glasses for mini me, but failed :(

But.. But... But....

Both me and mini me had bangs! YAY! (errr... actually there's nothing to be proud of)
Me and mini me love pink clothes and white shoes.

Me and mini me love to sleep almost everywhere, but prefer to daydreaming than having a real dream at siesta time :D
But of course, don't you ever wake us up, you won't know what kind of monsters we'll become.

I want to have a bulldog someday... for now, mini me got a mini bulldog. The bulldog is a phone strap I bought in Vietnam made by leather, cute right?
