This week I spent most of my free time working on this creepy cute zombie girl in a bunny costume. I am having way too much fun drawing and crocheting these days, being creative just makes me happy.
Her name is Bonny, because well… Bunny.. Bonny. I am not really good at picking names so I let my friends choose one for me, and that’s what they came up with. I actually like it, it suits her well.
I got the inspiration from the creepy cute chibi genre, a style that I love. I started with a drawing and coloring, then went to my closet to get the appropriate yarn which of course I never have, no matter what. For that reason, I picked a slightly lighter blue to make her costume and slightly darker pink color for the hair. Next time, I will check out the yarn first before deciding on a color.
Her head is really big and I was afraid that it wouldn’t hold against her tiny body, so I put some wire inside to keep it straight. It worked out great! The hair was the most daunting task because it took me forever to attach all those strands of yarn on her head. I lost count of how many I had to cut, probably close to 200 if not more.
I want to make a doll stand for Bonny, and my other dolls as well. I don’t really like the ones available at the craft store, they are very basic and don’t always work out. It’s on my list of things I want to learn and when I do I will blog about it.
I am already on the drawing phase of my next chibi project, I am on the drawing phase right. It is going to be a girl dressed as a gothy black cat, cute and spooky! I am going to have a lot of fun with that one, I love cats!
