Asmodeus Winter Ensemble by SadDaysCrochet Asmodeus Winter Ensemble by SadDaysCrochet
I made Asmo a very classy new coat and a pair of black shoes with rubber soles. I also made him a field. It's quite a large field.

Asmodeus is a fully posing figure on a stop motion armature. He has glass eyes, steel bones, and clay teeth but other than that he is completely crochet!

More pictures on the book of faces: [link] or the Tumblrverse: [link]

I finished the coat months ago, but kept it secret because it seemed to do pictures with a coat and no shoes. You cannot tell this here, but his pockets are real! They fit his hands inside and everything. They are lined in black and have little flaps over them. His buttons are real too, of course, and all his clothing is completely removable. Shoes were difficult! But worth it. I connected the rubber clay to the crochet with a kind of wire cage, much like I used for his teeth. They are nice and flat so he can stand better now, plus there are bolts imbedded in their toes so he can be attached to the floor, which means I can do proper animated walking sequences with him. Excitement!

The field has been in the works for ages because it took ages to make, but I've kept THAT a secret because of how stupid it sounds to say you're making a field. I think I posted WIP for that on Facebook.

Sorry I've been posting so little- I've been having a bad month migraine-wise. Actually two bad months... Let's hope it's not a trend.

That is incredible! Can I ask what size needle a thread or yarn you are using? Just curiosity. I don't think I have seen any measurements, which honestly I could have over looked them.

He really put me in mind of the movie Coraline. Probably because I saw where an artist crocheted/knitted clothes for the characters.

My hooks and yarn are all over the place- the smallest hook I used for him being a 2mm and the largest a 4mm? The yarn goes from sock-yarn thin to heavy cheap acrylic thick. This is partially because of my habit of using whatever I happen to find in the cupboard and partially because I'm still working out which yarns are best for what uses. The varying yarn thickness also contributes to my erratic hook size. His body is all quite thin yarn with a 3mm hook. He's actually a little over a foot tall- everyone who has met him in person says he's bigger than they thought, which is interesting. There's a picture of him with a ruler here: [link]

I am so delighted that he reminds you of Coraline! My not-so-secret life goal is to get hired by Laika studios, the place that made Coraline. I have yet to make anything with stitches as petite as the ones used for her clothes (Needles as thin as human hairs?!?), but it's on my to-do list. =D

I love the buttons on the coat! :love: The shoes look much better, and I can't wait to see more pics of them. The grass field looks like it should be a lot of fun to play around with. Lol! And my first thought was, "Now he needs a tree." I wouldn't take that too seriously, but I do think a tree would look really nice in your field! :giggle:

I have big tree-making plans! But they might be a little too big- I'm thinking 4-5 feet tall? Then it can double as a hat rack! Which I need. I need to work out how to make a good base to crochet over... When I work that out I'll start making a tree. :D I posted some WIP shoe pictures on the facebook fan page! I guess I could put some up in scraps too if you were curious. :D

Sounds cool! Maybe you should look into other items that are used in model making? I know they make mold-able mesh for clay work. I am a yarnaholic, and watch your scraps too. Nuf said? Lol!

He's alive! Dear goodness, the sheer detail you've put into this tiny man is incredible. And you have him frollicking through a freaking field of yarn grass. Look at this yarn field! What is this madness? This amazing, wonderful madness. Love it.

Heeheeheehee :giggle: It is the madness that sustains me, I think. And the tiny details. Perhaps details have caloric value and provide nourishment? Thank you so much! I think I will be putting everything in that field for pictures for a while- it's just so nice to have somewhere for things to be now!

Haha, it's wonderful to be able to use your talent like that. It's always good to have something that makes yourself happy, if not those around you. But both is an awesome bonus! ;D
Oh gosh, I am the WORST when it comes to photography. When it's not nice outside, my last resort is crawing around on the floor near a window, trying to work out a decent background... I need some poster board...lol.

Yes, I must admit that I would keep doing my crazy thing even if no one else liked it. It makes me happy! Haha! I have this crazy plan to actually make myself a kind of photo studio where I can build full sets and things... someday. Right now it's just a piece of paper pinned to the wall and a lamp. AND A FIELD! As of now. The great thing about amigurumi is that it's small, so no one has to know how pathetic your photo set up is!

A full CROCHET set. In which all the furniture or scenery is crochet. Maybe wven the background! It'd be CROCHET-CEPTION. Woah. Hang on, that would be so cool, I need a moment to comprehend how amazing that would be.

Aw yes, all the fanciness. I think that will be the last of his clothes for a little while though... can't spoil him. =P It certainly should fit- I kept putting it on him and taking it off him while I worked on it to make sure.

I love his coat he looks very stylish! and O.O I love the field!!!! That would be great for my deer.

I'm glad to see him but I hope you get to feeling better soon! :hug: from here in Kentucky!

I do so want him to be stylish! I started to hate the field after a while of working on it, but now that it's done I love it again! I will take pictures of everything on it for a while. Because it's so much fun! And the grass seems to work for multiple scales, which is odd but great.

Thanks for the good wishes- when I feel bad for too many days in a row I get all angsty and can't remember why crochet is important. But then I feel a bit better and go online and see all the other people who crochet and all the cool things they are doing and then I get all excited to work more! I'm feeling a bit stronger today. Dunno if it will last, but I'm going to make the most of it! :D

I can't wait to make him walk! I'm actually super itching to do it (maybe I will make it my new icon?), but my tripod isn't working and I kind of need it to be working. Waiting for sugru the magical problem solver to come in the mail so I can fix it!
