Instructables Robot Plushie Preview v2.0!!! Answered

Picture of

So here he is! He's naked and without his upgrades, but you get the general idea! He's going to have little yarn wrapped washer wheels, a face, buttons, and later models will probably have arms closer to the body as well as shorter legs, I think. Oh, and some cardboard put in the butt because right now he has some serious junk. ;) And for all the boys - terribly sorry about how cutesy he came out. That's just how it works. Someone could tell me to make a werewolf plushie and it would be adorable in the end. I don't know that you can make macho plushies. I can't, at least. :P And sorry about the color difference in the pictures. Bad lighting and a loooong day, haha. Oh, and the stitching is a little bumpy on this butt and in other areas since he's just the prototype and all. I was doing a quick running stitch and slipstitch. :P So.... comments? Questions? Suggestions? Dancing? Indifference? Criticism? BRING IT ON! :D

This is not meant to be a negative comment in any way, just illustrating how warped MY mind can be sometimes I guess, but the head and how the face area appears sectioned off reminded me of the old Max Headroom TV of the past (first a commercial, than his own TV show).

Watch Tim and Eric. The Chan episode was one of the best so far, explaining how to take care of your child clown.

Name ten things that aren't Jackie Chan.

Well, until I am back to work, I have been going to bed fairly early (10 pm or so) so I can get up and walk in the morning before the sun gets above the east side trees and turns a walk into a sweltering steam bath. :-)

FLCL is on what Cartoon network calls "Adult Swim", late at night. Besides being mentally disturbing, some are mildly amusing just to see how THEIR culture view OUR culture.

I researched the "story line" as it is supposed to be shown, and I can follow that, but the show was pretty whacked as far as I was concerned......I could not see how the story line could be gotten from the actual show :-)

Yeah, same here. It's really just too fast paced. But I love it! Amazing effects, and interesting scenes.

But its just random insaneness.

Be patient! If she needs more time (other than the, what, six months she's been working on the project :P), then we should allow her to take as much time as she needs. Otherwise, she'd have to crank out a mediocre product than a good product.

The six months or however long was a super long time, too! I'm just as ready for this to be over with as you guys are. :P Sorting through all these images is a little rough, I have to admit. And I'm spending a little extra time on explanations. I still have to decorate him, too, but that will be pretty easy. Getting really close, though! :D

Yay! I think its allowed to be cute, the robot itself kinda has that odd disposition about him. (I secretly doubt that the robot actually does all they say it does. When I was there, I saw it send an email once, but I think someone was puppeteering from the ceiling...)

This week, I'm thinking. I have a lot of time to work on it. The third version is almost done. Right now I'm working on an embroidery instructable, though, to help people decorate the robot. I got a little burned out on backstitching for hours and I needed to move on to something else for a day. :P
