I haven't really priced out how much it cost to make him so I'm not too sure right yet.  He only used about a 100 gram ball of black, small amount of white and about a 50 gram ball of light yellow and a small amount of the darker yellow his feet.  The cape and diaper are both made out of felt so it wouldn't be anything at all to shorten up his cape.

Yesterday I managed to finished up one arm so give me about a couple days to finish up the second arm and sew it on.  I'll upload a pic as soon as I'm done.

Unfortunately I doubt that I'll be able to do more up for X-Mas gift just because I've still got a horde of non-Futurama stuffies to finish.  That and parcels have to be in the mail in the next couple of days in order to reach its destination before X-Mas.

After the Christmas crochet madness, I can do up some more to sell.  I'll keep you guys and gals informed of new developments (Man that made it sound as if I'm smart!)   laff

I was wondering if you'll be free for a Futurama-related plush making experience after your done with Nibbler.  I'll be willing to buy it from you.  How much are you selling them for?  I was interested in the Zoidberg plushie.  I just absolutely adore him.  My grandma used to crochet dolls for me and this reminds me so much of that.  Get back to me when you can.  No rush.  =]

Zoidberg I sold for $40 CAD plus Shipping. (I don't charge a 'handling' fee because I can snatch old boxes from work and it takes me 3 seconds to walk down the mall to the post office and mail it!)  laff

Once the Christmas plushie making rush is over, I can work on some more.  I still want to finish Bender up at some point in time and then try and concieve a pattern for Fry and Leela.  I think out of the two, Leela is going to be the hardest.  I've never made a female plushie anything before so it'll be interesting.

Speaking of the next cast members to Plushify, how would you folks like to see Fry and Leela done up?  I was thinking of crocheting them almost naked (Fry in his underpants, Leela in underwear and a bra) and then make clothes for them similar in fashion to Zoidberg.  The other things that's got me wondering is how to go about Leela's hair.  I'd like to have her ponytail as pieces of yarn so it'll be similar to a Cabbage Patch Kid's hair but I'm not sure how to go about making her bangs and such?  Just crochet it as per normal and then have the ponytail made out of yarn just tied up?  I'll have to think about it.

Incidently, during this crocheting experience, I've tried to invent a little gizmo to help me crochet faster.  It's still in it's testing phase but hopefully I can get it working half decently and then I can crochet my little brains out!  laff  Usually it'll take me a few weeks or a month to do up a plushie (depending, Zoidy took longer becaue of sewing the clothes) and if I've got several people looking to purchase stuffies, I don't want everyone to have to wait forever for them.

If ignorance if bliss, you'd think more people would be happy when you tell them they're an idiot!

I just looked thru the older posts and it looks like you were interested in a Nibbler before I even started crocheting him!  So I guess the answer to your question is you are the first person on the list to recieve a Nibbler.  I actually have him finished up, I just have to get a picture of him to upload.  I'll keep you informed of my progress on another Nibbler if you like.

I've also bought yarn for Leela or Fry.  (Both flesh colored yarn)  I think I may start off with Leela.  Just the idea of doing a female curvature seems like a challenge.

Yay! Definately keep me updated. You can e-mail me if you like.

Edit: in regards to Leela, have you thought about doing little girl Leela?

I thought I'd let you all know that the Zoidy I bought off Jen arrived at his destination, which is not where I am at the moment though. I can probably tell you what he's like in real life in about two weeks. Thanks a lot to Jen for the work and time you invested in this.  smile

It's been awhile since I posted last, so i'm just lettin' ya know that i'm still interested in buying a Bender plush, whenever you get one done, that is. ^^ (Yeah I kinda had to cut down the list from Zoidberg and Bender to just Bender, when I realized I wasn't that rich...between paying my rent, net bill, and cellphone bill, and buying xmas gifts...it takes alot out of your bank account. I have no less respect for your crocheting talent, though...I absolutely *love* how Zoidby and Nibbler turned out. ^^ ; )

<Zoidy>Alright,alright, I'm coming *sigh*</Zoidy>  laff
It took a little while but I finally got off my lazy ass and took a pic of Nibbler.


And this picture I took after I came out from the computer room.  Apparently my Jack Russell was going to snuggle with him and was quite intrigued by Nibbler.  Not really sure who is going to try and eat who first!


I just kept thinking "Watch out Tazie, Nibbler loves puppies." he he he

Oh... my ..ggggoooness. Those are soo coool. You got real creativity there. I bet you can make some nice slippers with characters heads on those and maybe some character pillow covers. Now that would be really nice.

I know of some places you can down load paper models of characters, I think they also had some Futurama characters too but that particular site as gone but at least you can make these characters from this other site.

I'm glad Zoidy arrived in time for Christmas.  Hopefully he was worth the wait!    smile Oh and I wanted to tell you that his sandals have small hooks on the inside of the straps so to put them on you just have to hook them onto one of the crochet stitches.  Sometimes you have to play around with them a little to get them to stay.   

Oh, and the ink pouch is sold separately!   laff

The Nibbler is awesome. Well done, I'm impressed. And I'm generally not impressed with much that doesn't involve nudity.

The Zoidberg plushie is absolutely fantastic.  big grin We couldn't manage to get the sandals on though, so he has to walk around bareclaws.  wink
The bigger one of our dogs likes him a lot, too; she managed to get one of his pupils off and was caught covering him with slobber...

Bender-is-Great,
Zoidy and Nibbler look so "Clool!", as Amy might say...

How about Bender, Leela, or Fry next?


(BTW, I asked a friend that makes Trek plushie dolls to make me a Bender one - will post when she has him done)   smile

I'm glad you (and the dog) liked it!     laff  The sandals do take a bit of fiddling around in order to get them on.  I should try and see if I can't try and fix it to make it a bit easier to get on and off...

With Zoidy I started off with his claws.  I just kinda had somewhat of a mental image on what I was looking for and just picked up some yarn and a crochet hook and started crocheting.  I was quite fortunate because I really didn't have much fiddling around and ripping out to do.  I just had and idea on what I was looking for and figured out what crochet stitches would make it look like what I wanted.

I was thinking of selling the plan but haven't done so just yet.  I'm still debating whether I'm going to or not.  But the Zoidy plushie I sold for $40 CAD plush S&H.

Sure, if you like you can email it to me and I can also display it on this thread too if you like.  I can host the pic on my website.

I've actually started to redo Bender a bit so maybe this will give me some ideas on how to do his head etc.. when I get to it.

Oh yeah, I'm still making them!  smile  I've got a bunch of people on the list right now so I'm trying to finish some of those first.  I've been able to refine the Bender plushie but unfortunately his body is taking forever so that's why I haven't posted any pics yet.  I think I've figured out how to go about the Leela plushie but I want to get caught up on the others that people are going to buy.  I'll keep everyone updated, once I actually get some more stuff done! I haven't forgotten about the other crew members!  laff
maybe I should just pull a Farnsworth and have myself cloned or something in order to keep up.  The clone can go out and work and I can stay at home and crochet! LOL
