I wanted to make something Halloween-y for October and also for the Halloween contest being held at
. 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!
