Blaziken Pokemon Amigurumi by SadDaysCrochet Blaziken Pokemon Amigurumi by SadDaysCrochet
There's a long story behind this one...

When I first made this account here on DA :iconhinata-teh-lefty: liked my work and thought I was cool. This was a big deal! When I first started looking for commissions to do, she asked if I would do one for her later when she had some money saved up. I said "of course!" Then some months passed and I stopped taking commissions. But she was finally ready to request a commission, and I wasn't going to say "No way! I don't have time for people who supported my work from the very beginning!" so I agreed to do the commission anyway.

This was... months ago. Blaziken has been a back-burner project for me for a while, and *Hinata-teh-Lefty has been really cool about it! So thank you so much for that, and for being such a delight to work for! Anyway, she already has her Blaziken now, and I know she is very happy with it. Therefore I am very happy too!

Blaziken is a fire-type Pokemon, and as far as I can tell based on a chicken? I'm not into Pokemon (and I don't think I'll be making any more!) but I can see why there is so much poke-amigurumi out there! This was tons of fun to make. The bold colors and shapes of pokemon lend themselves perfectly to crochet. I had lots of fun using two colors to get those spikey fire legs right. I invented a new technique to get the big anime spikes just right! It's a combination of latch-hooking, brushing out, and special doll hair-gel (watered down fabric glue) to shape the spikes. I learnt lots of stuff making this guy!

All acrylic yarn crocheted over a wood and wire frame so he's posable. For some more photos you can check out my gallery here: [link]
I chose kind of an odd angle, but I love how well it shows off his spikes!

Yet another amazing piece! I was wondering when I would be seeing what the "flame pants" were going to turn into!
SadDaysCrochet Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Aww yes. The fire pants turned into fire overalls turned into... Giant fire chicken. :XD: :onfire:
Also thank you!
