Trainer Red + Kanto Starter amigurumi set by SakuraMota
Trainer Red + Kanto Starter amigurumi set
:party:  

Happy 20th anniversary, Pokemon!

 :party:


In honor of the 20th anniversary of Pokemon Red/Green's release in Japan, I made a little set of Kanto starters plus their Trainer Red in his Gen I outfit!

Notes:

In general
:bulletblack: Most of these were improvised, with the exception of Squirtle.  I used the base body from Squirtle to help improvise the others.

:bulletwhite: Each Pokemon took about 4-8 hours to complete, mostly because of improvisation trial and error time.  Red was the biggest for this, and took about 12 hours to complete.  Red in particular was done all in one day, but most of the others were done over a period of 2-3 days.



Squirtle
:bulletblue: The only one that used a pattern, which you can find on Ravelry.

:bulletblue: Pretty straight-forward, so not too much to say.

:bulletblue: I'm still not 100% happy with the colors.  I tried so hard, but in the end had to settle with the closest I could get with my stash.

:bulletblue: Was the first one completed.



Charmander
:bulletorange: After finishing the body and head and sewing them together, I got rather apathetic, and so he sat on my dresser for about 4 months.  When the anniversary started approaching, I decided to retake the effort and make them all.

:bulletorange: Pretty much follows the Squirtle pattern verbatim except for the lack of shell and instead tail and belly details.

:bulletorange: After attempting to make the tail myself, I gave up and found this pattern, from which I borrowed the tail.

:bulletorange: Completed second, and has the longest "in progress" time of 5 months (September 16th to February 18th).  Despite this, the actual "work" period is only maybe 2 days.



Bulbasaur
:bulletgreen: Base body was altered to be thicker than the previous 2.  Only thing the same from the Squirtle pattern are the limbs; everything else is improvised.

:bulletgreen: The bulb was a pain in the neck.  I'm still not satisfied with it.  Took nearly 3 hours to find a look I was okay with.

:bulletgreen: Completed third, and was intended to be the last.



Pikachu
:bulletyellow: Was an impromptu decision to be inclusive of Yellow.  

:bulletyellow: Base body is thicker like Bulbasaur's.  Also like Bulba, only the limbs are from the base Squirtle pattern.  Tail came from this pattern.

:bulletyellow: Completed in one day, in about 4 hours.



Red
:bulletred: Just when I thought I was finished, I decided it'd be fun to make Red as well.

:bulletred: Body comes from a base that I like to use.  I've made quite a few human dolls using this pattern.

:bulletred: I originally started making FRLG's Red (because I like that design better, personally), but decided instead to go Gen I so he'd match the 20th anniversary theme.

:bulletred: After experimenting with a few ideas, I gave up on trying to get the spiky hair.  His hair is instead embroidered to the head.  Bleh.

:bulletred: The hat is not removable, but the jacket/vest is.  Jacket was more or less patterned after this one, but with a few alterations.

:bulletred: Not pictured here is a tiny Pokedex I made for him out of felt, which fits in his jacket pockets, which are functional.

:bulletred: Made in one day, from about 11 AM to 11 PM.




NOTHING IS FOR SALE.  Patterns listed when applicable.  Pokemon belongs to Nintendo, GAME FREAK, and its other related companies.

Follow Me turned 6 today.  Holy sheet.  o__o
I got my old laptop around the time I started Follow Me back in 2010 (SIX YEARS AGO HOLY SHIZ), so it was beyond time to replace it.  The video card has been dying in it for a long time, and several of the keys on the keyboard were dead, making typing pretty much impossible.  Only reason I got Chapter 40 out at all was because I typed it up long before the keys went dead.  x_x


Speaking of, now that I have a working keyboard, I plan to start work again to get Chapter 41 out.  :D  I had originally planned to get it out around New Year's, but I kid you not, I came down with a cold from hades Christmas Day that did not leave until almost mid-January, but not before it developed into bronchitis.  :dead:  So I got sick right after I released Ch 40 and could barely function for a long while.  It seems like I get sick every year around this time.  Damn flu season.


On the personal front, I finally talked to my family about my decision to leave religion, and they have mostly been loving and supporting.  My mom is a little stiff and it's obvious that she doesn't really know what to say, but she hasn't expressed any less love, so that is good, and my dad has just been beyond awesome in treating me the same and reminding me that he loves me still.  I'm thinking I'll get them both Valentine's Day cards and write a note telling them how grateful I am for how they raised me and that I don't resent them for it at all.  Because really, I don't.  I'm grateful for how I was raised, because it made me the person I am today.  I just don't want to be in the religion any more is all.  But things are getting much better, which I am glad for.  Leading up to telling them, my anxiety was getting so bad I was having regular panic attacks.  Since telling them, I've been feeling a lot better.


I think that's all for this update.  I'm relatively healthy (barring some allergy woes, but I expect that this time of year), my family and I are doing well and I can be open with them about my life changes, new lappy runs great and will facilitate me writing a LOT more, which I'm excited about!  I hope everyone is doing well, and I'll see you all again soon!

Hey, long time no see! You've had your wisdom teeth out, right? Is it normal to have trouble opening your mouth two days after the surgery? (Also, what's your 3DS Friend Code? I have New Leaf and I wanna play with someone :D)

It's normal to be a little stiff for a while, yeah. If it doesn't improve after a week, I'd inform your doctor, though.

Sorry for the late reply. My mom's going to call them tomorrow, since my teeth still hurt :( :(

My Friend Code is 0576-5807-4247, and my Mii's name is Sara (spelled without the H, unlike my actual name, because reasons). What's your Mii's name?
