Who You Gonna Call?

Last week I saw the new Ghostbusters movie.  It was awesome.  Before it had even finished I had decided to make the new team.  Here they are:

 Erin                                               Abby

Holtzmann                                                  Patty

These amigurumi are made using 8ply yarn and a 3mm crochet hook.  The eyes are felt and the glasses are wire covered in yarn.  Holtzman also has some acetate glued into hers for some extra colour.

Finally here is another shot of the whole team.

New Amigurumi

I was looking back over my amigurumi collection and I realised two things.

1: It is time I made my own pattern and

2: I really don't make many female amigurumi.

Here is the solution. My first ever designed from scratch amigurumi:

The most kick ass character I could think of: Imperator Furiosa.  For those of you who haven't seen Mad Max, stop reading and go see it now.  (No seriously, go now.  It's got explosions AND a story. You don't get that with your average action movie.)

For now I'm off to crochet another character.  Who to choose next?
