Wedding dragon

This beautiful young lady was a wedding present, I was vaguely tempted to give her a veil, emboldened by the success of my kookaburra wedding veil but wisely decided against.

I tried a new way of doing wings, which are always my least favourite bit of a dragon. I was quite pleased with them!

You can't see but her spikes turn to dots on the tail, and the last dot is actually a heart. Because, you know... wedding dragon and all that!

Ready for take off!

Young goblin

So, we have been calling this handsome chap a goblin, but in point of fact we are too polite to ask him what he is.

I'm super pleased with how he came out above the neck, below the neck I sort of winged it, as you can probably tell.

These photos were taken in our nearly finished games-themed room by the way. I'm sure there will pictures at some point.

Tiny capybara

After I made a moose for a Canadian colleague, a friend asked if I could make her 'something Brazilian' for the desk at her new job.
Challenge accepted!

This little lady just loves chewing on grass. Unfortunately she didn't have time to do the whole lawn before she went to her forever home.

I mean, really, a tiny capybara is just a guinea pig basically, but the ears gave her away when she tried to infiltrate the normal-sized guinea pig party.

Monster in the darkness.

Xykons' secret weapon, here's Order of The Stick's Monster in the Darkness.
Because why not? (Also: because Ben's birthday)

Also, I made a teeny sloth although I wasn't very happy with how he turned out so he's hiding in this plant.

Just chilling...

Chilled out moose

He's just hanging around, minding his own business.

I made him for a Canadian colleague who went back to Canada, because I thought they definitely won't have access to moose stuffies where they are.

Moose behind. If you like that sort of thing.

He'd fly through the air with the greatest of ease
That daring young bun on the flying trapeze...

 The look of utter concentration on her face.,,

He, on the other hand has done this so many times he could do it with his eyes shut. You know, if I'd given him eyelids.

Sure hope those paws have got a good grip...

Easter bunny

This pink ball of fluff was hatched from an egg and loves eating chocolate.
He's far too large for that egg and is wearing it like a dress. I suspect it is because he was too lazy to get our when he hatched and has now grown big and fat from Easter eggs.

His ears are posable!

Fireside kitty

Is this just the cheeriest little kitten ever?

If Dan had just held the camera a little lower it would have looked like she had flame hair!

Fun fact: in a rare frenzy of tidying last year I got a bucket of soapy water and washed all of those fake coals. Looks like they could do with another dip!

Commissioned coffee monster

I forgot to post this guy. After the craft fair the lady who bought Original Coffee Monster commissioned me, with increasingly specific requests and an ever shortening due date, to make another one for her friend.

He was to be orange, with a purple coffee mug. Oh and skull slippers, please!

Here he is, warming his tentacles on that first fresh brew of the day.

Eight, the Borgtopus

So, I was happily making a cute octopus in a leather gimp suit and Dan assimilated him.

He has some serious hardware on him, he's quite a heavy little squid drone.

Borg eye!

Back of his head (body?) with all the gnarly wires going into his cephalopoddy noggin

The green light in the photos was inspired, no?

We have called him Eight, after Voyager's Seven (of Nine)

Two of his borg-transplant tentacles. (Some of those tentacle transplants are titanium!)

The discussion has raged on for a while here as to whether the Borg would really bother assimilating octopodes. The unanimous conclusion was: "yes, yes they would".
