LoZ: Poe by aphid777 LoZ: Poe by aphid777
I wanted to make something Halloween-y for October and also for the Halloween contest being held at :iconcrartisancrafts:. Info for the contest can be found here: fav.me/d6lwgf1. My bf suggested a poe from LoZ and I thought it was a brilliant idea :) In case any of you are unfamiliar, a poe (from the games) is a creepy, mischeivious, ghost monster with a distinct laugh that enjoys battering you with its lantern.

This guy is about 6 inches tall. The lantern and eyes are needle-felted because I wanted it to look like they were glowing in contrast to the rest of the piece. I'm still a slowpoke at needle felting so a re-do (because the first one was too small) and 3 broken needles later, the lantern was finished. The robe.... So I like to buy yarn before knowing what to do with it ^^; I bought some metallic purple yarn a while back because it was on sale and lo and behold, it came to good use! I used the same technique that I used with Skull Kid's mask to get the color gradient going, but with a lot more colors so it was a pain in the butt avoiding a tangled up mess. Again, I hate fingers, but it had to be done >_<

Enjoy and happy October everyone! :)

This is so amazing! I'm trying to make one for myself because I like to collect Zelda stuff plus it's good exp for my crocheting but I have to ask, how did you get the colors to fade so well? Is that just the way the yarn was made or did you do it like that? And if so how? Sorry Im not that experienced I just sing everything I make.

Ugh I wish I knew how you did it. I don't understand how to put stuff lien that together. It looks so great.
I love fading colors so I'm gonna give it a try.
Hopefully winging it will work out haha

Thank you!  I actually crocheted with a couple different colors at the same time to get a gradual color change effect.  It's kind of annoying crocheting with so many strands at once, but I couldn't think of another way to do it :XD:

I used several different strands of yarn and crochet thread for the robe :)  I don't remember the exact brands now though, but I generally use Red Heart and some metallic-colored yarn I had.

Next time you do something with this technique you should make a video of how it's done :)

I think the trick is to make a few extras (however long it takes you) then charge a lot for them. People will pay - these are amazing.

I'm glad to see that the LoZ:OoT poes are getting some fanart love. They were always such a cool enemy, and the forest temple wouldn't have been the same without them.
