tinyAlchemy has created two original amigurumi figurines from World of Warcraft. This worgen is ten inches tall, with poseable arms and legs:
And this tauren is 7 inches tall.
tinyAlchemy says, “ I used my friend’s character as a reference to keep proportion and details. He is…made out of acrylic yarn. His arms and legs are poseable ( I made thread joint for his limbs – so you can make him sit or put his hands up). The mane and braids are made out of wool for felting.”
Pretty cool stuff.

I like this because it’s very different. KinokoKoneko says, “I’ve been playing The Wind Waker lately (MK8 promotion woooo!!) and in my head I imagined Link’s grandma getting bored of waiting for link to save aryll and feeling all alone and scared to the point where she’s just like “Ah forget this!” *Swigs elixir soup and bursts out of house wielding a sword to go chop up nighttime monsters* And this was the result of that little daydream.” I like it!

Our June challenge was “Three Colours.” To quote BMH, “I’d like for you to make something – and by that I mean anything – using only three colours. When I say three colours, I mean three thread colours, three bead colours, etc. It can be an image that is already three colours, or maybe a tri-coloured design inspired by something!”
ashntoph won first place, with this Mario, Peach, and Luigi piece:
BooChocoBoom took second place with this Dr. Seuss/Mario crossover stitch:
icedragaonj placed third with this Pokemon stitch:

According to Geekologie, there is a restaurant in Japan that is serving Pikachu-themed food. ”The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills.” Here is a sampling of the food you can order:
I don’t know if I could eat Pikachu’s little face, though…

AngelaBermudez, over at DeviantArt, commissioned this BioShock sculpture for Ken Levine (the creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games. He led the creation of BioShock.) What an amazing opportunity. And guess what? This was her second sculpture. EVER.
