Moving
akyla
Hey all, I'm kinda annoyed with the way all my picture postings get lost to time so I finally gave in and got a Deviant Art account so people can just enjoy the pictures, THEN read the info.

So check me out over at: http://mageakyla.deviantart.com/

UB Con 2011
akyla
If I'm still in the area I'd love to sell again. Looks like the event is scheduled for April 8-10, 2011. If there is anything you'd like me to have there or any suggestions, let me know. I'm trying to think of other $5 items or less I can sell next year. The cupcake cthulhus are a big hit, but the brains didn't move. I'm not sure I want to do more sushi this year.

Cuteness Abounds
akyla
With the mass rush to get stock for UB Con, I never got around to actually posting my newest creations. So here are the mass group pics of my swarm of Cupcake Cthulhus and the new Sushi Buddies. I know some of you may have seen these already, but I wanted to share to those who haven't. I'll be taking more picks and finish listing the leftovers at my Etsy store soon.

UB Con here i come
akyla
Just an update, it looks like I definately have a table at the con so hope to see some ppl there! I'll post more pictures of the rest of the sushi and such when I take a break from making things.

Sushi & Braaaaaaainsss!
akyla
I've been working away and here they are, my sushi trio and my healthy and zombie brain! These are completely my own patterns and I'm thinking of selling the brain pattern in the future and may offer the sushi patterns as well.

New Items and Countdown to UB Con
akyla
I'm attempting to get a table to sell at UB Con http://ubcon.org/ as such I'm working on a bunch of quick, cheap to make items that I can sell for $6 or less. If most con goers are like me, especially university cons, I bring enough to buy some small stuff and one big so I want stuff available that won't break the bank. These include my cupcake cthulhus, brains (both healthy and icky), and cute plushie sushi buddies. I also have some other simpler pins and bookmark ideas too I can sell for $1. I will have a cthulhu hat or two for those interested.

I've figured out the brains and two of the sushis so I'll post pics when I figure out the last sushi and dig out the camera again.

Christmas Cards and crafting fail
akyla
I've been idle for a while on here and on my Etsy but I kinda hit a creativity lull for a bit. A friend commissioned a hat but the knitting stitches required to make it weren't in my repetoire so I've been teaching myself. I managed to get a large part finished and got to casting it off the loom...and screwed it up royally. All well, I can't learn everything the first time.

Eventually my creativity came back and Cupcake Cthulhu reared his head and thus came these cards. ENJOY! I may offer them for sale if there is interest and I perfect them a bit more.

Dasota's Ears
akyla
Well I've been pretty busy with real life things so the crafting got put on hold. Here's the ears I finished for my friend Dasota for her Dragon Con wolf costume.






New Items up at my Store
akyla
Well I finally got the ambition to piece together a few more things I made so they're now up at my store. Enjoy! :) The eyes ARE black but the camera is getting old.






Grand Opening and what I'm up to
akyla
I officially opened my store on Saturday. There area five items up now and I'm working on finishing up two "eye stalk" monsters. I keep jumping between projects so those need to be assembled, got a new novelty hat in the works (winks at tipouf), a new plushie that I may or may not sell, and i've been working on a commission for my friend Dasota. The latter is wolf ears for a costume. Below you can see the first ear mostly finished.







Sneak Peek
akyla
Here's a sneak peek of some of the items I'm going to be listing as soon as the store opens. Yes I need a better camera.

The Cthulhu Hat



Cthulhu Cupcake



Cthulhu Cupcake Keychains (light purple, deep purple, and neon green)


Update
akyla
Hey all, I'm still around. I've just started the professional job hunt. If you haven't checked out my Etsy recently, the officially opening June 20th (baring the state not getting tax form authorization to me or moving to another state). So in my spare time I'm working on stock for the store. I have one Cthulhu hat done, 3 cupcake cthulhu keychains, 2 cupcake cthulhu plushies, and 2 beholders just needing assembly. I'll post pics when i get a chance...at some point here.

So cute
akyla
Well apparently my Cthulhu Hat doubles as a costume. Earlier I posted the red and black Cthulhu Hat that was special ordered. Well it was ordered as a birthday present for her hubby but their little one has claimed it for himself. However as an adult hat, it encompasses his entire head. Without further ado, here's the cutie:



GIR hat
akyla
Well here's my newest commission. A GIR hat. If you don't know who GIR and call yourself a geek, be ashamed, be very ashamed (and Google it now!!!)







And the hubby looks sooooo excited. Luckily it's not for him.


Chibi Tom Servo w/Free Pattern
akyla
Since the original was so time consuming to make I decided to make a cuter, smaller, easier version. So enjoy Chibi Servo.



And for a size comparison. If fits nicely in your palm.


I may be willing to sell these for about $15

Fasten off

Cut out and glue on felt where needed.
Wind the Pipe Cleaner into a spring form. Leaving tips to glue the hands to.
Attach head (I used a decoupage ball from Michaels)

This is essentially the same pattern I used for the big Servo, Just add the number of rows and increases to reach the size you want. You can attach pipe cleaners but you'll need one for each side or a much longer one or attach them to the crocheted shoulders..
