Skull Kid Unmasked!  High Detail Custom Amigurumi by SadDaysCrochet Skull Kid Unmasked!  High Detail Custom Amigurumi by SadDaysCrochet
Yes, I made Skull Kid again. This time his mask comes off! I do not know why he looks like a combination of a jack-o-lantern, a tree, and a duck under his mask, but that's what he looks like in the game and I am nothing if not true to my source material. This was a custom order for Zesuri ([link]), who liked my last skull kid so much she ordered her own! I know I hinted to some Zelda fans that there would be more Zelda in the works, I hope you aren't too disappointed that it's the same character again!

To see a bunch more pictures (including a solo-shot of the mask, a shot of him wearing the mask, and a shot of him next to a ruler for scale) go here: [link]

My pricing is $10/hour, and typically price cap custom dolls at 20 hours, or $200. I actually timed myself making this doll, which may have been a mistake, because I found out how long this actually takes me- the main body took 25 hours, and the mask took 14. May I be the first to say holy fuck about this? I'm sure there was at least an hour that I neglected to time, so that's 40 hours- twice what I capped the price at. No hard feelings to Zesuri for getting this doll half off, but if anyone else wants a Skull Kid doll, I am officially removing the price cap. This only applies to Skull Kid! Because he is super complicated and time consuming. Especially with the removable mask.

Bragging: I made dozens of tiny improvements on the original. All in all I am much happier with how this one came out. Especially as the mask is the correct size- in the game it is much bigger than his face, and last time I made it face-sized.

Crochet nerdiness: I did the body (dark brown) with a 3mm hook, the clothes with a 4mm hook. The beak and the mask features were crocheted from embroidery floss with a needle that I am guessing is a 1.75 mm, but I'm not sure? The other mask pieces are 3mm hook again, and the other details are embroidered (and my fingers still hurt from it). His eyes are orange beads, and I created a very interesting socketing technique that I would be happy to tell you about if you are interested. The 'wooden' loops that comprise the belt and hatband (that you can't see) and shoe details are crochet over wire loops. The mask also has a wire rim with two spikes that insert into the face so he can wear the mask. I worked from the outside in on the mask this time, instead of the inside out, and it worked much better. He is stuffed with polyester stuffing, and polyester beads in the feet to give him weight. He has no structure or wire inside his body.

Hurrah!
