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.
Cockroaches.


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,
GIVEAWAY TIME!!!!
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.

  3. because..
    HEY!! Cockroach is one of the oldest animal in the planet. Who wouldn't want one of our ancestor? even if it's in amirugumi form.

    We should appreciate our history. well, in this case... our cockroach. -_-'

  8. I work in an office full of other grad students. Grad students studying entomology. Some of these grad students are taking it because they want to expand their knowledge base, but are afraid of creepy crawly things. They cringe at silverfish caught by other students, and shudder at the thought of similar things being in their homes.

    As it's nearly Valentine's Day, the absolute nicest thing I can do is have these cockroaches wrapped up in bows along with small boxes of truffles, right?

  11. These are crazy cute. There is a lady on Etsy who sells pottery with cockcoaches on them and I love them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. Yeeee-yuk!!! No thanks, we spent a night in a french hotel in the country years agao and woke up in the middle of the night with 100's of them running all over our bed - the minute the light went on they all shot under the floorboards - sorry - you can keep 'em!!!

  13. I think they're very creative and my husband would get a real charge out of them! I just haven't decided whether I will tell him in advance if/when I win them!

  14. I have a thing for roaches. Might stem back to being unlucky enough to live with them a couple of times. Since then I have kept them as pets. Not the common vermin ones but Giant Hissing Cockroaches make cool pets. They like to eat sweet potatoes and hiss when you pet them. I was a docent at the Bronx Zoo for 10 years and often taught people about them and showed them off on tours. Now I collect roach knick-knacks. Your little cuties would look great in my little collection.

  15. Fantastic! My husband has a cockroach tattooed on his calf. He wanted something to remind him of his job and where we live. I adore it!
    I am used to seeing and dealing with them because I live in Florida but I still hate the flying roaches that dive bomb you when you turn on a light at night.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love them! I want them because for many years my husband has tried to fool me with a fake doo doo and now I've found the perfect think to scare him back!! Fingers crossed!!

  17. Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!! Awesome. My dad is Bob "the Bugman" & has been doing pest control for the last 15 years. As soon as he became "the Bugman" we have been constantly on the lookout for nifty bug stuff. Even if I don't win I would love the pattern & would try to make one myself (might take me a couple of years,) but these are soooo cool. Awesome job. (The hardest part would be to give as gift to my dad, I think they are cute & would totally put one in my kitchen.)

    ReplyDelete
  18. The cockroaches all run away when I turn on the light. Perhaps I'm hideous (to them). If you sent one to me I could ask it, "if I changed my hair color and attached some extra arms would you stick around? If I had antenna would you have a picnic with me? Would you go to a movie and eat popcorn with me, if only I had wings?"

    ReplyDelete
  19. well, i would like them to play a joke on my friend. she battled roaches a few months ago. i think i would go over there and slip a few in her bed and one in her kitchen somewhere. oh it would be toooo funny!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Growing up in a humid climate, these things are all over the place! I never walk in a room or touch anything without turning on the light first. You just never know what you might put your hand on:)

    Most find them gross. I think I will scare my kids with them just for grins and giggles.

  21. Because I've had a long standing love for the little creatures, who I like to think of as little people, as weird as that sounds and I would definitely cherish them :p Here's some evidence from an old essay I wrote for school:


    “Of Cockroaches and Men”
    They’re perfect. They’re sleek and mechanical, like a precision timepiece; indestructible triumphs of nature and evolution. I would’ve mailed a live one for you, dear reader to marvel at, but I felt the postal system would frown upon it. Their beauty goes misunderstood by those too caught up with clichés and personal prejudices to see their impeccable sophistication. It is their greatest competitor that shows them the least respect; strange creatures that have managed to overtake the earth and create such strangely unnatural colonies. The creatures probe their sickly feelers ever forward, but make up for their gross dominance in the quaintness and foibles of their behaviors. It is fitting I suppose, that these two weirdly gorgeous creatures are locked into a continual struggle on a daily basis. One, simply trying to make a living and feed in the other’s cupboard, is met with serious objections and attempts to eliminate its entire species by the latter. In this ongoing battle between the cockroach and the human, which is the superior species and who will ultimately win dominance of the planet? And, who deserves to win?

  22. The Dictoptyera clan and the human are not as different as one thinks. In the way of lifestyle, cockroaches will live anywhere and eat anything. People will live in North
    Dakota and eat at Taco Bell. So, in this respect, the nature of their lifestyles is not as different as one might think. Both cockroaches and people simply yearn for those lazy
    days of eating junk food and watching the kids switch between eating and playing in mud. What’s so wrong with that? To achieve these dreams however, they must work. Cockroaches and people both strive to create lasting colonies with complex systems and thousands of inhabitants. Like people, roaches follow the hive mentality and are pushed along by the group. When you see a swarm of cockroaches scurry when a light is flicked

Cockroaches and people both strive to create lasting colonies with complex systems and thousands of inhabitants. Like people, roaches follow the hive mentality and are pushed along by the group. When you see a swarm of cockroaches scurry when a light is flicked
    on, it is no different than a party, broken up by the appearance of complaining neighbors or police. Cockroaches can even make group decisions and cooperate to acquire food. It is not behavior that earns cockroaches such disdain, but a primal fear at seeing a species just like us, only much older and perfected with age. When it comes to lifestyle and the ambition to get the best, cockroaches and people are a match. It hardly seems fair we attempt to exterminate them when they only want what we want.
    In the case of beauty, however, the scale is tipped far in advantage of the cockroach. If you ask an educated person what beauty is, they will say symmetry. The symmetry of the cockroach is unparalleled. Its lustrous body is a well-oiled machine that moves rapidly and smoothly, gliding across the floors with the impossibly fine sensory hairs of its feet, designed to scale whatever obstacle they face. There is an ornate complexity and perfection of nature in these half robot, half animal looking creatures that seem to be visual representations of the combination of the two subjects that cover all the mechanisms for life and explain our planet: biology and physics. Humans, on the other
    hand, have bodies relatively new to this planet and not yet perfected by evolution. We have over extended limbs, that flail and go bad with age, poorly adapted for walking
    bipedaly instead of on hands and feet like most other primates. Soft, oddly shapen, prone bodies with unnatural tufts of hair and exposed breakable skin, make people not only easy to injure, but bordering on grotesque when compared to other species. Cockroaches lack a fundamental element that must be conceded to humans. For all their ethereal beauty, cockroaches lack art. While all cockroaches are imparted with a grace of movement that allows them to master the art of dance, they do not perform their
    nightly ballets to express themselves, but for practical chores. People though, are imparted with philosophy, art, and music. Our species can cry and love, and express themselves with too delicate hands and feet and voices. People make up for their lack of feelers to give them insight into an individual they come across with a much more lasting outputting of their souls. The inner beauty and fineness of thought they express seem to make up for most of the physical beauty they lack compared to the elegant sophistication of the cockroach.

  23. But who will inherit the earth? The cockroaches have been on earth in one form or another since the Carboniferous period about 300 million years ago. This is approximately 150 times longer than people have been on earth. It seems cockroaches have made themselves a steady niche on the planet, and aren’t too worried about the upstart Homo Sapien species. Should they be? The buggers can survive several days after
    losing their heads. If urban legends have any merit, they can survive nuclear holocaust, too, along with the Twinkie. Maybe the cockroaches should not get so cocky in their
    position though. The human race has been able to dominate and change the face of the planet in a way no species has yet accomplished on a similar scale (besides perhaps the
    ant or the Paleozoic prokaryotes that changed the atmosphere, but that is for a different essay). It is not clear which species will outlast the other, but for now, my money still lies with the cockroach.

  24. Oh goodness! Roachie friends! I would love one because... well... I love roaches. I'm an arthropod fan all around (my first pet was a rosehair tarantula) and roaches hold a special place in my heart because of the distaste they garner. I just think they're fascinating - quick and hardy and their antennae are so emotive! My boyfriend used to kill roaches on sight, but I've managed to sing their praises so much that now he'll throw them outside like any other bug to go about their buggy lives. Seriously, when I saw this featured on Craftzine, I squealed out loud. Adorable little buggy buddies! Who wouldn't want a roach?!

    P.S. I'm fine with others being confused by it, though - that just means there's more for us who love 'em.

  27. Why do I want a cockroach?

    Because they live among us;
    Because they are resilient and no matter what they don't give up;
    Because we can’t forget about them as they constantly appear in our dreams, movies, and folk tales;
    Because they inspired the most important child song in Latin America, "la cucaracha";
    Because one is the best friend of Wall-E;
    Because they are for above all, alive

  28. Why would a person want a cockroach? Such a silly question...why WOULDN'T someone want a cockroach...especially one of yours??

    Let's see, my awareness of cockroaches started when I got my own apartment. They were everywhere and I considered it a personal battle to defend my home and drive them off. Naturally,I lost.

    After a few years, we moved to a colder climate where cockroaches don't seem to live. (Well...we didn't move because of the roaches, it was job related) My husband must've been missing them because we now have three different species of roaches. (None of which smell funny!) I realize it's a bit odd, but we enjoy watching and chatting to each of the colonies.

    On the other hand, my brother, who owns his own pest control business is always offering to "take care of that problem for us!"

    (I came over via Craftzine and love the fact that you even thought to create such a fun critter. I'm off to explore what other wonderful creations you have come up with!)

  29. These are amazing! I would love to win your cockroaches! I have a strange affinity for these little creatures, as well as any bugs in general. I find them very inspiring and a lot of times use them as inspiration for my artwork. I actually have a painting I did of two cockroaches waltzing, and have been wanting to do a photo-shoot with live cockroaches for a while now! So I definitely have a strange appreciation for them! Crossing my fingers and hoping to be considered to win one of your awesome little critters! :)

  30. haha, these cockroaches you made are awesome! i can't say i love them, but i don't hate them (the real one of course). Neither am i frighten of these creatures. strange thing, i often think, because everyone around me is ready to hit a cockroach with their shoe whenever one comes into sight!

    but i'm sure i'll like to sit these artsy cockroaches among my teddies and crafts i display. is that weird?

  35. I'm actually a fan of insects in general...I adore spiders, especially jumping spiders. I talk to bees and beetles. I used to have a pet rhino beetle that sat on my shoulder in class. I bought some Archie McPhee plastic cockroaches, but they are not nearly as adorable as yours!

  38. garlicginger@comcast.net - I would love a whole army of these babies. Maybe a few of them peeking out of my mail slot would scare away the preachers and salespeople who come, unbidden, to my door..........one or two of them in my salad at Morton's might gain me a free steak.......a few visible at my hairline might gain me the front row seat I'd like......one perched on my head of lettuce might get me to the head of the line. Actually, I could make my own cockroaches as I DO know how to crochet and knit. Alas, however, I have no pattern nor even one to gaze upon for an example.
    For all these reasons, I need one or more of your gorgeous roaches. How have I lived this long without them? Karolyn

  39. I just saw your site and had to actually look up the word Amigurumi. I never knew such a thing existed and now I'm totally fascinated by what you've made. I finally have my own home, cockroach free but this wasn't always the case. I have lived in many places where cockroaches were my roomies. So, I would love to have one for my kitchen to put on my sugar bowl, you know, for old times sake....lol. ~Mary

  40. O my God..I love these so much. I used to keep Madagascan cockroaches pets for a long times until they all passed away.

They are very realistic and beautiful. panee@nycap.rr.com

  42. My ex-husband collects cockroaches. He doesn't have any as wonderful as these, and I would LOVE to give him one!!

    Years ago, when we were moving, the movers carried out his desk and one of the drawers fell open. Out fell a parade of rubber roachers. You should have seen one of the men jump! (The other man just stood there and laughed, since he knew we don't have cockroaches in Alaska.)

  49. Wow a lot of entries for these cockroaches!
    When I was little, we lived in a place where, at night when you went into the kitchen and turned on the light, you'd wait to move while all the cockroaches scampered away into the corners! And it wasn't like we were dirty people, just the nature of the neighborhood. We thought it was normal . Now I think it's gross, funny and sad. So I guess the amigurumi would remind me poignantly of my childhood?

  52. My college roommate and I once had a visitor in our dorm room that we named SuperRoach. We were convinced that he was abnormally large and clearly brilliant enough to continually outsmart us. We never did catch the darn thing. I drew a wanted poster of him wearing a hero cape. Over the last ten years, we send each other anything with cockroaches on it for fun. To date, the best we've found is a holographic roach bookmark. Your cockroach would take the cake as the best SuperRoach tribute ever. I could even make a tiny superhero cape!

  58. I would love to receive one of your cockroaches. I would give it to my friend Victoria who is terrified of them. She wants to tackle her fear though, as it is very inconvenient on the many travels she makes. I think one of your lovely cockroaches will definitely make them see less scary!

  59. What can I say, they are divine, those creatures of exodesign,
    that skitter, skip, and tromp and flee, or’e counter top and floor with glee.
    And don't forget their midnight prowl, across your unsuspecting scowl,
    they leave no trace, but be not fooled, upon your chin, that be not drool!

    Rendered in exquisite taste, with knit and purl all interlaced,
    and single chain, and double too, doubt not I would so cherish you.
    Much thanks to you my far off friend, though know you not, I do contend.
    And many cheers to you, this via, for a shocking lack of Katsaridaphobia.

    Oh, and my teenage daughter thinks they are “SOOOOO adorable!!!!!”

  60. I was visiting my grandmother (92 years old) in Japan, in the summer last year. She was proud that she has not had any cockroaches in her home for the longest time, but have seen one recently. She thought it came from the house being torn down next door. Well, one day it showed its 2 inch long self and scares the hell out of us, while my grandmother goes after it with her bare hands is if catching a cricket! And successfully.
    I would give it to her for her 93rd birthday.
    Thanks for the offer.
