Crochet Minty Outfit of the Day

 

Her royal minty highness is here! She wants sushi!

…She always wants sushi.

This weekend was quite a good one, productivity wise. I completed the tutu suspender dress(I will publish photos later when I model it) made a new mint wig as seen above, and gave some much-needed attention to another dress I’m working on.

While I look so cute in this look I must reveal a juicy secret– my ears aren’t real!!!

*Le gasps*

Fake ears, I know. So scandalous. I bought these ears from an Etsy shop(she doesn’t sell ears at the time of writing this). A year ago I bought liquid latex from Amazon by the brand of Graftobian, that worked really well with my elf ears. When it ran out I considered an alternative in stores. I quickly realized liquid latex isn’t all the simple to find unless it’s Halloween. I did find some in Wally World(Wal-Mart) but I regret using it. It wasn’t as good as Graftobian’s version. The stickiness isn’t as strong and it dries more clumpy than the other one. This isn’t a problem if you’re wanting fake peeling skin effects but I was using it as adhesive.

Have I learned my lesson? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it liquid latex isn’t something I can cheap out on or use just any kind as adhesive.
Alright, I know the rest of the photos. Here ya go!

Crochet Pikachu Hoodie 

Greetings! Here’s to my Crochet Pikachu Hoodie!

There’s no pattern in particular for the hood, tail, or. However, there is a shrug video tutorial that I used as a base which is useful for creating the bodice.

Video is for shrug here.

After creating the shrug I added onto the base. I made the hood, ears, and tail.

I altered the stitch type for it. I didn’t want the hoodie to be lacy. So I alternated between single crochets and half double crochets.
