31 Amigurumi in October: Day 16

Today brings two dolls for the 31 Amigurumi in October series! These are little Moon Buns dressed up as the water and ghost type Pokemon, Frillish. Frillish is a sort of Jellyfish and if you're into yokai, yes! They are 100% based off of an actual yokai. You know me and my love of yokai knows no bounds.

Today's October Create a Day prompt was Crystal Ball. Now I could have gone for a crystal ball, but what fun is that? Let's make a cute little psychic Moon Bun wrapped in purple shawls to read that crystal ball for you and tell you your fortune. Ahh! She's so cute. This was one of my first kerchief-styled hats for a Moon Bun and I'm loving it!

Ok, I've got a ton of things to do today and not much time to do it, so I'm gonna run.

As always you can find these dolls over at my shop, Moon's Creations.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 15

Today's Moon Bun for 31 Amigurumi in October is a Zorua. I was not familiar with this dark-type Pokemon, but it's so spooky-cute! According to Bulbapedia,
Zorua can change its physical appearance, though this transformation is merely an illusion as it keeps its own type and moves. Zorua keeps its true form hidden to ensure its safety, and takes on the appearance of other Pokemon to frighten off enemies. Sometimes it will take the form of a silent child. 
Aww! I love Pokemon which are based off of yokai, because yeah, I will always and forever love yokai.

And then we get to an iconic character, Beetlejuice! The prompt for October Create a Day was Beetlejuice and I stuck with it. After making him, I thought about why I didn't make another character, but that will be for another October. I really wanted to remake this doll in my improved style.

Yep, a long 31 Amigurumi in October ago, I made a Beetlejuice Moon Bun and I've always wanted to remake his design in the striped suit again.

Announcement Time!
I will be attending my first ever Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in July 2018! That's right! I got my confirmation. I'm going to Zombie Capitol of the world Pittsburgh!*

* I've never been to Pittsburgh before, but it is Zombie Capitol in mind thanks to George Romero.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 14

Today's doll is Cacturne! I like Cacturne's character design, but maybe that's me. haha! It's a very spooky looking Pokemon which fits the Grass/Dark type. 

I have to put my little tag phrase here, because I'm a bit too proud of myself.

This tempting little Devil Moon Bun would love to make your life a living Hell. 

Mwhahaha! Doesn't it feel like there should be lighting flashes in the sky now.

Anyway, can't type long. I promised I'd make my children cupcakes today, because the read a book and their mama stupidly said, "we have those ingredients." So now I'm on the hook for making Troll cupcakes. I probably make a post later with our results on my home blog, Tired and Flailing if you wanna check that out.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 13

Happy Friday the 13th of October!
WhooOOOooooo! (Those are ghost sounds, btw)

So today's 31 Amigurumi in October doll is Decidueye. Decidueye is a Grass/Ghost type, so I'm kinda bending rules on making this doll, but it's my series and I give myself full permission. This doll was very difficult for me. In fact, I redid the design while it was waiting for it's release date, because I still wasn't happy with it.

Here is my attempt at making the cutest spider ever for the October Create a Day prompt "spider." This photo shows off the little spider bun's blushing cheeks, but she also has tiny fangs if you look closely.

Both dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations.

Have a safe and spooky 13th! WhooOOOOoooooooOOooooooo! (more ghost noises)

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 12

Today's doll for the 31 Amigurumi in October is one of my favorite Pokemon from the television series, Pumpkaboo. I don't know what it is about Pumpkaboo, but I've been making my family nuts talking like her. She's so cute! Like a little pumpkin/cat. So cute!

Today's prompt for the October Create a Day was "costume' and my brain immediately goes to Jason Voorhees. Maybe it's the fact that dressing like Jason Voorhees is like wearing two costumes. First the character behind the mask and then the mask itself. I've made so many Jason Moon Buns in the past and I think this one is my absolute favorite to date.

Currently both dolls are available at Moon's Creations, however the dolls from these series have been selling out very quickly.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 11

Today's 31 Amigurumi in October Moon Bun is dressed as the ghost-type Pokemon Drifloon. This is another of those Pokemon I didn't think much of, but oh my gosh, these things are creepy. They are the spirits of dead humans and Pokemon. They like to lure children away by pretending to be balloons. Ahh!! 


Inspired by the villains of old black and white films and in the Snidely Whiplash vein, it's the Villainous Moon Bun, complete with a removable top hat, menacing eyebrows, and a handle bar mustache to twirl. Beware, he's certainly up to no good.

Both dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 10

Today's doll for the 31 Amigurumi in October series is a sleepy little Abra. He can sit up, but this little outtake photo ended up being my absolute favorite, because it looks like he's resting his sleepy head on the pokeball. Aw!

For the OctoberCreateADay prompt today, "Haunted House," my mind went immediately to one of the most well known haunted houses, Disney's Haunted Mansion. I've never been to any Disney park, so I had to hit up my Twitter family for some ideas on which ghost to make and gosh did they ever come through for me. 

The big consensus was the Hatbox Ghost and here's my representation of him in a Moon Bun form. Now as adorable as he is with his hat, if you remove it, he's still hiding his adorable little Moon Bun ears.

Both dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations.

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 9

Today's 31 Amigurumi in October is dressed as the Pokemon, Espeon. Espeon is extremely loyal to any trainer it considers to be worthy. It is said that this Pokemon developed its precognitive powers to protect its trainer from harm.

Today's October Create a Day prompt was pumpkins, so here's a little Pumpkin Moon Bun!

All dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations!

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 8

Today's 31 Amigurumi in October Moon Bun is dressed as Smoochum! I'd never put much thought into this particular Pokemon until making this series. I'm going to include the snippet about them, because I don't think I've ever identified with a Pokemon until today:

When walking, Smoochum rocks its head back and forth. This Pokémon is very active and runs about, although it often falls. Being very conscious of its appearance, it will check is reflection when given the chance to make sure it is not dirty.

Today's October Create a Day prompt was "monsters," so I created a truly monstrous Moon Bun with fuzzy blue fur, fangs, long horns, and some pretty radical purple eyes. (Thanks to Monsterumi for letting me convince her to take on an eye commission.) This doll was reserved for a Patreon member. If you'd like to join us on Patreon, please do. I'll be posting a preview of the next 14 dolls this Monday and we'd love to have you join in the fun!

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 7

Today's Pokemon inspiration for the 31 Amigurumi in October is the ghost-type Pokemon, Phantump. I don't know maybe it's my love of trees, but I adore Phantump. They're so cute!

The prompt for today's October Create a Day was "witch" so I made a Witch Moon Bun inspired by the Wicked Witch of the West. I even gave her a little broom.

These dolls are available at Moon's Creations.
