who are the lucky slash crazy cockroach winners?

thank you for joining the cockroach giveaway.
I'm having a great time reading all the entries, there are total 56 entries.
3 of them claimed not to want any cockroach, too bad (it really makes me want to send them the real cockroach.).
Yes, I'm one of the person who would make a prank using cockroaches :P
apparently, there are at least there are 11 more people who would love to make prank using cockroach too.
6 people would love to have the knitted cockroach for memory sake and nostalgic reason,
18 people would love to give knitted cockroach to their loved one for various reason. Makes me wonder, could it be a favorite gift for husbands?
5 people requested the pattern, so I guess the next valentine they would definitely sending cockroaches instead of chocolates.
4 people would love to decorate their home even the kitchen with cockroach.
7 people have/had real cockroaches as their pet.
17 person claimed as the cockroach fans, friend, alien friend, even a cockroach king.


group hugs!

cockroach invasion


But I think no one can beat Travis, the world record bearer for putting the most cockroaches in his mouth, therefor, I'm proudly announced him as the winner of cockroach giveaway.
as I wrote before, I would give extra cockroaches for crazy answer.
so Travis, you win 11 cockroaches just like your record. But please don't put them in your mouth, it could be a choking hazzard.

the next winner is ccosner, cause she has write a long essay about cockroach.
and the last but not the least winner is Ruw19 the Rajo Kapuyuak (King of cockroach), because he was my colleague who inspired me to make the cockroach amigurumi.
He's the one in charge of catching cockroaches at the studios with bare hands.
This reason might be personal, but he's also the first to answer the cockroach giveaway, so I think it's fair enough.

congratulations for the winners, please contact me as soon as possible, so I could send the cockroaches :)

since it's really a fun project, I could make some more extra cockroaches whenever I want to, cause I do respect my crazy fellow. just wait for it :)

and for those who don't love cockroaches, don't worry, I will make another giveaway someday.  But I don't know yet whether it would be sweet or another scary giveaway.
any suggestion?

OMGrumi: Jupe

when I started the OMGrumi of famous people,  I thought it was easy to just make an amigurumi (crocheted toys) based on some random famous people.
Later, I find out that I don't want to make a doll version of just random famous people.  I need to like the real person first, that's why this time I choose Julia Perez or Jupe.

She's an entertainer, and she's fenomenal.
I never watch her movie, nor listening to her song, so I'm not really a fans but I'm a pro Jupe.
Many people think bad about her because of her appearance (it's her gift anyway, don't blame her for being sexy), but when I watch her in a talk show, I believe she's actually a smart and brave lady.
yesterday, she made the news again because of her costume when she's watching Katy Perry's concert.
And I instantly decided, I must make an amigurumi of her :)
Let's just hope there's no stupid law against her costume.

PS: I know Jupe's costume which was designed by Aming was inspired by Katy Perry, but the one who inspired the making of this doll is Jupe.  Sorry that I consciously miss the best details on the costume :p

The rotten android

I made another tiny android as a complimentary gif for a gift swap in my office's outing/ family gathering.
the outing was held last weekend, so it's already too late, I just finished this android tonight so I will keep it for myself.
I'm not happy with the colors, cause I don't have the bright/ neon green yarns, and this green I have is just too.... rotten.
I also made it without pattern, and I did miscounted the row so it's a little bit sloppy :p

this one is actually a flash disfunctioned photo, but I love the colors

wow, it's hard to believe that there's a lot of people who love cockroach.
I'm so happy, and really appreciate all who have participated the cockroach giveaway.
thank you very much :)
there's one more week left to participate if you haven't.
meanwhile, here's a story of Coro the cockroach, a true story.

that day, Coro was taking a nap at the rooftop, unaware of the univited guest



I guess that's the end of Coro's short life.


oh and don't forget to check the cockroach stop motion too here :)

Come join the cockroaches (giveaway) party!

that night, I was alone looking for some food for late dinner then I met an old "friend".
We're not really getting along, but meeting a familiar face in a new place could be *long pause* inspiring.

Made using a combination of knitting and crochet technics.
Coro, Cucunguk, Kapuyuak, Kecoa,they have a lot of alias.
Yes, they are everywhere.
they love parties, preferably the time after the party.

anywayyyy... It's time to keep my promise,
I'm giving away three of my cockroaches (amigurumi, not the real one).
I guarantee that the cockroaches are clean, and do not smell funny but please keep it away from small childrens.

wait a minute, why would a person want a cockroach?
so tell me why, then you can have the cockroach amigurumi :)
I will choose the sick lucky winners based on the answers on the comments below this post.
don't forget to leave your name or e-mail address so I can warn you when you win the cockroaches.
The craziest winner could get extra cockroaches.
I'll be waiting for the answers till January 24th 2012.
But for crazy answers, I would gladly make cockroaches too even if the giveaway time were expired.

any human/cockroach with real address in earth could join this cockroach giveaway.
be noticed that the shipment to some countries might took 2-3 months even longer. So be patient, and don't worry cause I won't sending live cockroaches.
