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!

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.

You think of everything don't you?

Everything? No. More things than I could ever hope to finish? Yes. =D

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

Gosh, thank you so much! :giggle: I love details. Maybe a little too much? No- impossible. Just enough.
