I’m so incredibly proud of this thing, so really I just want to show it off everywhere I can right now!
Some of you might recognize him, maybe?
Hobbii Rainbow Cotton 8/4 for the main doll
Hobbii Fluffy Day XL for the hair
The blood is acrylic paint diluted in water
The hair alone took me 3h to do.
I’m so in love with this I’m so proud! I’m gonna display it somewhere I can see everyday.
I love how the stitches look! Did you Yarn over or yarn under? If the hair took 3 hours I can’t imagine how long the body took! At the moment I can’t figure out where he’s from lol
Thanks for letting me know! I can’t believe it took less lol for the hair have you ever tried using a spiky dog brush? I do that with one I got at my local dollar tree (just a cheapy one) but it works really well separating the yarn strands! Having to separate each one it makes sense why it was about 3 hours
Are you taking it to the concert? I’ll bet Ogre never received a crocheted gift in his life.
The yarn was ripping so I couldn’t use a brush I had to separate it by hand
No, we’re not allowed to give things to the guys due to Covid.
And yes, Ogre has received many crocheted gifts in his life. In fact, more than one doll of him!
Has he really?!! Amazing!
Yeah! Fans always bring Ogre all kinds of gifts he’s a very, very loved human.
Oh hair is a loathe for me to do. My horse at xmas took 2 days to root the mane.
Its worth it in the end when the result looks so cool but so time consuming and not as fun as the crocheting.
I’d be tempted to make 2 on the off chance I got to give him one so very awesome
Oof, yeah some yarn works better than others
Oof I don’t know that I have enough spoons to make that again plus I wouldn’t get to give him one cause my area is far from any convention or event he’d be likely to ever attend.
I do like the result tho. Needed it to be extra floofy
Yeah, I’m ever the dreamer he’s super cool
I’m already happy enough that I will get to see him up close one last time, since I got a VIP ticket and that includes soundcheck. With the barrier I won’t be directly against the stage but. Still pretty close if I arrive early enough
At the ohGr show I was directly in front, for a good while. I was at maybe 3 feet away from him
(No I promise I’m not fanpersony )
This looks fantastic!
Does the paint crack or harden when it dries? (I have never done this before with paints)
It gets harder. But I dilute it with water, so it’s really more of a stain. Think watercolor. I wouldn’t think of painting directly with acrylic.
Turned out great Winter! The painting creates such a unique effect!
Thanks I loved painting it so much, but now my desk is full of stains
