The Escapist said, “In honor of Nintendo’s recently announced yarn-spun platformer, Yoshi’s Woolly World, SmallRiniLady spent 35 hours crocheting a Yoshi costume.” Wowie zowie. I think it’s pretty amazing! I also found this photo while searching for info:
Um, and this one:
It looks like they had fun! Apparently this was all at PAX Prime last month in Seattle.

The Aug/Sept challenge was Silhouettes, and it was a do-over challenge. Said BMH, “We’re revisiting an old challenge this month – silhouettes. This was a really popular challenge last time around and a few people have asked for it to come back, so here it is!
The only rule is that your entry’s main focus (for example your character or thing) should be the thing that is silhouetted. What you do for your background or around it is entirely up to you! It’s a really simple concept but I expect to see lots of creativity.”
There were nine submissions, and they were all fantastic. So guess what? I’m going to post the top 4 today, and the rest tomorrow!
HornyPig won with this awesome Navi stitch:
It’s gorgeous. And check out the subtle “Hey Listen!” in white.
In second place was blackberrybear with this lovely Sailor Moon Crystal piece.
In third place was BigDaddyWiz with this colorful Sora and Kairi/Kingdom Hearts stitch:
In fourth place was Clarington with this detailed Twilight Sparkle piece:
Aren’t they wonderful? Check back tomorrow for more!

It’s difficult to see in this small picture, so check it out on deviantART. VioletValhalla says, “Here it is… The BIGGEST fuse bead piece I’ve ever done: 62 in x 32 in! Approximately 53440 fuse beads! MASSIVE. Months of work, very frustrating because of the size… But I’m a huge Phantasy Star IV fan so it was worth it. The Profound Darkness is the final boss in PSIV. This is her final form.” Very nice!
