Left and Right Custom Crocheted Dolls
gideon-ziz:

So Tavros is enjoying meeting his alternate universe self where everyone is exactly 1/3rd the size they normally are. As you can see from this picture, I am a HUGE NERD. The bigger Tavros and the Eightfold (who is eating the heartfelt letter that was also sent to me with the dolls as I type this) are made by me, and the Isaac (with removable backpack) and the littler cuter Tavros is from leftandrightdolls who makes wonderful crochet dolls and you should go commission one from him. Also, yes Isaac’s shirt actually says “clothing” on it. Which is really a painstakingly minute detail that was wonderfully executed in earnest and can actually be read, which I cannot stress enough how awesome that is. Thanks so much Ryan.

Oh hey, that got there fast!  I was just thinking I should have sent you the tracking info by now and was looking for where I left the receipt.  Glad everything turned out ok.

People can be such jerks. TLDR my Homestuck dolls are free with another purchase because Andrew Hussie doesn’t want anyone selling fanart and I respect that.  But at this con I’ve had three separate people react by looking for the cheapest thing I have that they clearly don’t want (one settled on Meowth and seemed halfway interested in it, the other two got sticker shock and left). In one case, a guy walking by who wasn’t even with them told them to pick something at random and throw it away later. I’M SITTING RIGHT HERE!

But on a happier note, I made two adorable little girls’ day by selling them “cowgirl dolls” (Mimi from Digimon and Robin from One Piece).  They hung out for the better part of an hour and asked individually about almost every doll on the table and where it was from, and told me I should do a summer camp where I teach kids how to crochet. XD

Also I did an art trade with a dude who takes 3-D body scans of people in costume and makes 3-D printed action figures of them.  So that was cool.

LeftAndRightDolls is coming to Indianapolis!

Check out my table in the Creator’s Alley at Inconjunction at the Indianapolis Marriott East on July 4th weekend.  That’s just two weeks away!

At my last Con I was able to make a commission from start-to-finish over the course of the weekend. If there’s a character you want ready to pick up on Sunday I might be able to make one for you too. Either contact me in advance or find me ASAP on Friday in the Dealer’s Room. This is for one slot only, first come first served!

Hey everyone! These lovely ladies are up for adoption! They are mixed traditional media (mostly marker and watercolor) and really turned out lovely, if I may say so myself. The adoption auction is on FurAffinity and DeviantArt.
Please signal boost this!

My lovely and talented wife is trying out something new, so go check her out!  She’s talented in so many ways and it’s because of her that my dolls’ faces are so good and the photos turn out so great.  Please reblog!

Trevor Phillips from Grand Theft Auto.  The main brand that I buy yarn in started making a denim color that I used for the pants, and I think they turned out pretty good!  It’s hard to tell from the photo, but his face is covered in embroidered cuts and scrapes and his neck has a dotted line tattoo.
This doll was a commission and is not available for sale.  My commissions are actually closed for the near future while I deal with a crazy travel schedule for my day job, but there’s still plenty of pre-made dolls available in my gallery. Click here to see how to order.

Group pic of the Sailor Scouts.  Jupiter is a few stitches taller than the others and Sailor Moon is I think one row shorter.  The differences in their shoes and hair really stand out in this picture too.
These dolls are for sale for $60 each, or you can buy multiples for $5 off each doll after the first.   Click here to see how to order.  I also do commissions.

Sailor Moon, herself!  I just got a good laugh out of my filenames — the other scouts got their planets included (“SailorMoonMercury.jpg”, etc.) but her file was “SailorMoonSerena.jpg” and I realized that if I’d named her the same way she’d be SailorMoonMoon.
She has my favorite hair out of the set.  It was surprisingly fast to come together, and yet it was instantly recognizable as her.

Sailor Jupiter, from Sailor Moon.  I made her a few stitches taller than the other scours so she’d be the right proportions.  Her hair is tied with a regular old bow because I couldn’t come up with something I liked that matched her real hairband.

Sailor Venus from Sailor Moon.  The orange yarn in her outfit is actually the only yarn in the whole set that isn’t Vanna’s Choice — it’s some random acrylic from a bag of scraps I got at a yarn swap.

Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon.  She uses the same blue yarn that is in parts of Sailor Moon’s costume so I was constantly mixing up their limbs until I got them assembled.  The skirts in this set are all knit, but everything else is crocheted.
