And the Furturama crafts continue! I give you Dr. Zoidberg!
He has a fully crocheted body with felt clothing. The clothing was hand sewn and is removable! He was made in the basic amigurumi style and took me around three days to complete (working in about two hour chunks). I started him last weekend after posting Baby Bender. I also started an even smaller Fry, but then realized I don't have any orange yarn for his hair. Oops, oh well. I'll just have to keep my eyes open at the thrift shop for a while (where I regularly volunteer).
Took some better pictures! Here he is with his entire ensemble.
As I mentioned his clothing is removable and here's his basic body style!
As a side note I've been thinking about starting up something with Etsy, but I can't decide if that would make my crocheting into a chore. As it is I don't usually make these only for myself, I make them to make my sister jealous or my husband awed. It's fun to get a little attention for something I do, especially since I don't have a whole lot to show off otherwise (though it helps that I volunteer now). Selfish reasoning aside I also don't know what I would charge for such an item. I can judge off of other Etsy sellers, but sometimes I just think they're prices are outrageous! For example remember my failed plush Toothless? I've seen several that, in my opinion, are just as far away from being Toothless and are priced around $250.00 for ones the same size! Small crochet amigurumi range from $10 to $70 for something like the little Nintendo bomb and star that I made for Christmas.
It's a difficult decision, but for now I'm happy to take (paying) orders.
