A few weeks ago, I was inspired to make a Scuttler plushie, based on the vanity pet that came with the special preordered versions of The Elder Scrolls Online MMO.
Why? Why not?
And so, Scooter the Scuttler was born!
This little guy stands about 8 inches high, and is weighted in the tail to help him stand (in the game, these guys stand pretty much parallel to the ground, but real-world gravity required a bit of alteration in the design) Materials used were brown suede cloth, white vinyl, pink vinyl, and black button eyes. Took about 3 days to make, off and on.
He’s going to go live at the office as a team mascot, I think, because I have too many stuffed animals already. Still, I want to make a Dwemer spider at some point, although Otakon is coming, so that will be shelved for a bit, I think.
This is cool
Stark Spangled Banner, sweetheart.
There’s been a minor meme going around Tumblr along the lines of “hey, wouldn’t be cool/funny if Steve Rogers was able to lift Thor’s hammer?”
Kids, it’s actual comic book canon. As Mike Sterling helpfully explains:
Captain America proves that he is worthy enough to lift Thor’s hammer, from Thor #390 (April 1988) by Tom DeFalco, Ron Frenz, and Brett Breeding. This was from a period in Captain America’s history when he had resigned his usual superhero identity and became “The Captain,” independent of any government agency, in case you were wondering what was up with the costume.
So off you go to eBay, young’uns.
Truly amazing piece
