Oh look, another set of friends!
This photoset is especially for the folks who voted for my next project to be Sam Wilson. So here he is…just in time for him to stop being Falcon and become the new Cap! (No rest for the wicked.) I went with a t-shirt and 511s instead of the official uniform. He was already going to be complicated, and he can go casual now too. His wings are detachable, and his guns are attached via little magnets. I hear Anthony Mackie’s sister knits. Maybe she will see this!
Finally finished! This was my first time using this pattern, and there are a couple of modifications I’ll make next time, but all in all I’m pleased with how it turned out~
Sif cookies in FunkoPOP style! Since there isn’t currently a Sif Funko bobblehead, the awesome Tsarinajissa mocked me up an inspirational sketch based on comics-Sif!
They’re strawberry-flavored sugar cookies with royal icing, food coloring marker, and edible silver glaze. Sadly, one of the cookies had a headdress accident and is currently in cookie triage. She should be repaired by tomorrow.
As with the She-Hulk cookies, quizzical eyebrows are pretty much my favorite thing.
Someone who can knit better than I can, make me these please?
She-Hulk (Shulkie) cookies!
Inspired in part by funkoPOP style toys, but alas, the Jen does not as yet have her own bobble head, though she obviously deserves one. I sort of jumped into this one without even sketching out a model, as is obvious from the radical variation. On the other hand, not having a model meant I got to play around a bit with hair and eyebrows.
Since they’re heading to different people, half are strawberry-flavored and half are almond and coffee. As always, sugar cookie and royal icing.
The Avengers Black Widow plush
Captain Marble or The Christmas Carol
Captain Marvel is amazing, and this smaller piece is only an attempt at capturing her badassery. Inspired by the ass-kicking dinosaur-punching cover art for Captain Marvel #1 by David Lopez and the great story-telling of kellysue. It will also be displayed at Fantastic Comics~!
Also, if anyone is serious about building that Captain Marvel chapel, let’s talk.
- 20 inches x 13 inches
- The buttons are marbles! She’s Captain Marble! I regret nothing.
- Since she is very primary-colory, choosing the background color/texture was very difficult and stressing. So I made it snow. I think my Russian blood is subconsciously influencing my aesthetic choices.
- Not clear in the picture, but the “rays” are silver whereas her outline/internal lines are patina’d black.
- About 74 separate pieces + 6 marbles
While double knitting is usually done so that the back is just a color-flipped version of the front, you can also do it so that one side has a slightly different image than the other.
Latest Knitting Project:
I have just finished two pairs of fingerless gloves inspired by my two favorite Marvel Universe characters; the Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier.
The Black Widow “gauntlets” were done in black Caron’s Simply Soft yarn with blue yarn and felt for the “taser” bits. The Winter Soldier gloves were black and grey Caron’s Simply Soft yarn.
These gloves are for sale, too!
Black Widow inspired Widow’s Bite “gauntlets”: $30
Winter Soldier inspired gloves: $25
Contact me here for now, but I will be setting up an Etsy shop in the near future. These gloves are smaller, and therefore rather tight fitting for me, and I have dainty hands and wrists. If you want them in a larger size, then I will be happy to accommodate you!
I will also be working on gloves inspired by other characters in the Marvel—and potentially DC—universe. Expect pictures to follow when they are ready!
