I … I … Where do I begin?
I’ve just had my mind blown, again, by a collision of creativity and cuteness.
Intrigued? You should be, because I just came upon something wonderful.
I don’t crochet myself, but I’ve featured crochet artists on my blog before, and now I’m going to do it again.
Something about those little stitches promotes the kind of intricacy that can really get adorable across. Remember Nicole Gastonguay and her cute little edibles? Let’s just call that Exhibit A.
Exhibit B is Lucy Ravenscar and her world of teeny tiny fantasy and sci-fi creatures.
Lucy makes the most amazing crocheted beings. Many are based on characters already beloved by fans of nerd culture; others are completely new creatures that Lucy presumably made up herself. They are everything from eggs with hands and feet to dragons and characters from Dr. Who, Star Wars, and Miyazaki films.
It was the Star Wars characters that led me to her site earlier today. I’m a big fan of the early Star Wars films, and so discovering a miniature, crocheted version of R2-D2 was nothing short of absolute bliss. Darth Vader, 2 inches tall, with little crocheted buttons on his tummy and the cutest little snout you ever saw on his face? Delightful! Yoga, even smaller, with a teeny tiny hood? AH! Not to mention how the whole crew looks together. Oh, man! It’s just so good!
Check out more of Lucy’s creatures on her Flickr site, where she has an entire gallery dedicated to her Star Wars figures, a page of little elephants, and tons of other little creatures you can’t wait to meet.
