Rainbow Fairy Girls

Once again, I'm in a rainbow frenzy. And when I mean frenzy, I meant crocheting seven fairies representing each shade of the rainbow frenzy! What can I say? Totally gaga over rainbows. Hahaha!  

For my fairies' base, I used the Margarita doll pattern by Mia Zamora Johnson. Remember I used it's wings pattern when I made the Japanese anime version of Tinkerbell? Well this time I'm gonna use the whole enchilada.... Except the wings. Oh! The irony. ^^

Well, this project definitely wasn't a walk in the park, I can tell you that! But looking at the new additions to my amigurumi collection, my seven adorable fairies... What more can I say? Definitely worth it. -^.^-

My eldest brother's biggest fear is SNAKES! Long ones, short ones, venomous, not venomous... As long as it's identified as a snake he'll be running and screaming. So being the brutal and merciless tease that I am, whenever we email each other I always hide pictures of snakes at the end of my thread. Of course he hates me every time. Hahaha! XD


With that said, I thought to make my big brother a special gift for his birthday. What do you think I made for him? Yup! You guessed it... His very own ssssssmashing SNAKE gurumi. Genius? I know. ^.^


I love pranking my eldest brother, but I have no intention of sending him to the hospital with a heart attack so I'm not gonna crochet a life-like snake. O_O Instead I'm gonna make this cute, little amigurumi by Natalia Gruhina.

This is in Russian and since I was pressed for time (As usual -_-), I didn't check anymore whether this was translated in English. It's a pattern posted in 2013 so it's quite possible that someone already did. If anyone knows just let me know and I'll update this post. ^^


As a big Harry Potter fan (Potterhead), I thought it would be appropriate to name this after Hogwart's most hostile and fiendish house: Slytherin. Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not fangirling over Draco Malfoy. I'm as loyal to Gryffindor as any Fred and George Weasley fanatic. But you gotta admit, Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy? Nothing could be more sexy. Ooh! Those blond locks are just divine. XD

Before I gave this snakey-snake gift to my brother, I hyped him up first with a story of me going to a pet store and finding him the most suitable pet. That it was odd the shop owner gave me a very large discount and wanted to get rid of the thing ASAP. Needless to say, when I had his eyes closed and put Linus on his palmed-up hands... He screamed like a girl. Man! That was priceless. It was just too bad though that I didn't get my camera out to record the whole thing. Most awesome birthday gift eva!!! ^^

Next on my list... My second eldest brother. Mwahahaha!!! OvO

Chris Evan's birthday was last Jun. 13 and I... Missed it. [Sob!]

Umm... Could you give me a sec?

Well, I suppose sacrifices must be made. I had a deadline to finish a very important documentary so I was forced to set aside this cutie-patootie fan project. Sigh! 

Really such a shame and I thought I did a great job with it... He turned out so cute! Those chubby-wubby wegs, big blue eyes, and teeny tiny shield. Damn! He destroys my soul with cuteness. But alas! Even with a job well done I have missed my sworn deadline. Oh dear... Here come the tears again. 
I'm the worst Captain America fan and he's like my most fave Avenger eva!!! Ugh! Why time, Why? Why you do this to me? ToT

And I've actually planned this for almost a year... I was like, "I'm gonna make a Captain America ami, tag Chris Evans then we'll walk into the sunset, kiss, get married, have our own little Captain Americas and Duchess Galas and... And!" Wait! Was that out loud?

Ahem! Anyway... -O_O- What's done is done and the next best thing now is to put up the pattern. It's basically the same as my mirmo version of Loki, but of course with adjustments here and there. ^^

*Okay, this is the tricky part... The bangs. If you counted correctly then your last stitch should land on the right side of the hair cap
* From there, you will crochet across going to the left. In other words, starting from the bottom of the supposed sideburn, going up and across the hairline, then down the other sideburn. Is that clear? [Cricket Sound] Sigh! Even I'm confused with it. Okay, just bare with this diagram then.

I'm still not sure whether to tag Chris Evans with this oh-so-late birthday gift. I suppose he wouldn't mind... What do you guys think? To tag or not to tag? That is the question! Hahaha!  XD
Aaw! The snookums!!! XD


UPDATE: I just tweeted Chris Evans and hopefully he liked it.  Cross fingers!!! x(>.<)x
