...Vash preview... by ruiaya ...Vash preview... by ruiaya
Sorry about the bad picture, I recently lost my trial version of CS5.1 and until they knock a few hundred off or I cam able to save up the $700 for it, I have to wait to post the nicer collages like I normally do ^^; Sorry!!!

Anyway, I started this guy in January, put him on pause to start and finish Nightcrawler, the Mardi Gras kitties, several other kitties and so on. But I *finally* was able to finish him, praise be to God on high for that!

Okay, anyway, this is Vash the Stampede from the great anime/manga Trigun.

He is the largest doll I have ever made standing roughly 33 inches tall (not including the top of the hair).

What went into making him:

Bamboo for 'bone' structure.
Bouncy balls for knees
A lot of 12mm wire
Poly fiber fill
1/4 can hairspray((yes, his hair does stick up !)
Over 1 pound of cherry red yarn
43 mini red buttons
7 snaps
10 necklace links (cut opened and then forced close)
Random jewelry findings
A lot of redos
Even more time

You see him in the picture with a few of the accessories:
A doughnut
Sunglasses
Kuronekosama
(not pictured) his gun

He will be up for sale on Etsy whenever I am able to do so. I probably going to put him around $300. He was a *very* difficult and detailed doll to make.

:heart:

^^; it helps to be anal about some things when it comes to crochet... details happen to be the key problem/passion when it comes to fanart and crochet for me. If it doesn't look like the character, like, what's the point, right? ; ) Thank you for the comment!!

This is so awesome at the amount of detail that went into this piece! It looks wonderful, and I doubt that I would have the patients to do something this involved.

Lol, I find out a lot of people aren't too familiar with him, but thank you! It's even more awesome that you still like him for just him and not for him being a character you like! ((did that even make sense...?)) Thanks!

^^ Thanks! :glomps: A lot of time did go into him... and, I have to confess, the glasses were found on the doll accessory aisle of the local hobby store, I just painted the lens and bent the frame to match his glasses. ^^; But thank you regardless for the compliments! :D :D
