Ichabod the Raffy Dragon and an Octopus Pen Costume

Meet Icky aka Ichabod the Dragon. This little guy is always looking for a good time. He loves to be the center of attention and he's just the right kind of cute that makes it hard to look away.

Icky was made by crocheting around the form of a Raffy, one of Kidrobot's Munny mutations. The additional horns and tail were stuffed with polyfil. He was crocheted with wool and acrylic yarns.

And it's been a while, but I made another pen costume. And probably not surprisingly, it's an octopus. These guys are super comfy and fun to write with. I am going to make some more. They're such practical plush.

Head on over to the Plush Team site to vote for the plush in the Mythology Challenge. My little bond girl and her hippocamp are in the god and goddesses category.

Thanks for voting!!

I'm reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow. Cory really knows how to spin a techie dream. It's pure nerd and I love it. He's got another one coming out this month called For the Win. I'll let you know how they are when I am finished with the reading thing.

Bond Girl with a Hippocamp Seducing Poseidon

For the Mythology Challenge of the Plush Team I have created a remarkable combination. I started with the hippocamp and realized that it needed a saddle and something on it. Next came the scuba suit idea and then my mind jumped to the Bond girl with the cream colored bikini and the Austin Powers mocking of it. And that was that.

There are seven parts to the piece in that the scuba suit, flippers, snorkel with goggles and saddle are all removable.
