Fannish Craftiness  
aelfgyfu_mead pointed me in the direction of two adorable things. One is Elementary related. (OMG the bee one!!) And the other is this again, adorable bobblehead set for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I squee at how Natasha looks slightly badass in bobblehead form while Steve looks slightly stunned/confused.

To add to the collection, I ran across this set of crochet dolls for CAWS. I think the Winter Soldier's arm has to be my favorite thing. It's expected but I'm so strangely delighted by the color change detail. He's also the only one not smiling because his life is nothing but a vast minefield of misery and pain.

Still not up-to-date on my Elementary, so I have no idea if the turtle costumes are relevant to Clyde, or just in general, but OMG, turtle costumes! The one wearing the bee is sooo grumpy about it. Look at his little frowny face. >:-(

To be fair to Steve, he probably doesn't know what a bobblehead is and is rather alarmed at becoming one. I don't think they had bobbleheads in his day, wasn't that a sort of 50's invention, when everyone had cars and the road trip become a thing to do?

His crochet doll is pretty badass looking with his helmet on, though. Tash looks like she wants to buy you milk and cookies and pet kittens while uncovering your deepest secrets.

I think the only turtles that look pleased with their outfits are the shark one and the pumpkin one. The pumpkin one looks particularly happy with his costume.

so I have no idea if the turtle costumes are relevant to Clyde

They are. Ms. Hudson knocked up a few "turtle cozies" for him. It was the greatest thing ever.

Do not be fooled by her fuzzy crochet body and adorable smile. By the time she's done with you, you will have no secrets.

The shark one clearly feels pretty bad ass in his.

Awww! I love Clyde. And I'm glad Ms Hudson has made a return, I've only seen her first episode.

I want to see crochet Hawkeye with a little bow, perched on bookshelf somewhere, having her back while she cuddles with you.

She wasn't actually on to give them to Clyde but Sherlock mentions it. She does appear in a later episode though.

The crochet artist has an etsy store. Sadly no Hawkeye. But have some Thor and Loki: http://www.etsy.com/listing/165217087/any-2-or-more-amigurumi-crochet-dolls?ref=shop_home_active_3

OMG, LOKI'S HELMET! LOKI's. HELMET. Also Iron Man posing. But Loki's helmet.

Where's Mjolnir? Surely crochet!Thor needs a crochet!Mjolnir.

I sincerely hope Hiddleston owns at least one Loki amigurumi. Because he would get such a kick out of it.

I adore how the horns actually curve on Loki's helmet.

Here it is: http://www.etsy.com/listing/163659043/thor-crochet-amigurumi-doll?ref=shop_home_active_15

It looks like a softest thing. Like Thor would bop you with it and the most you'd get is perhaps some static electricity.

I don't know if he has one from this particular person but I swear I saw a similar looking crochet doll on his twitter pics that a fan sent him. Or was it a plushie? Maybe both.

EDIT: Here it is https://twitter.com/twhiddleston/status/168333667834408960/photo/1

Mum says if I buy the pattern, she'll make it for me. I don't know if I want to be that geeky.

No, I do. I just don't know if I can. Like, that's a new level of geekiness I'm not sure I'm comfortable with.

He looks so proud of himself! 'I am worthy to hold this small crocheted hammer!'

Here it is.

EEee!

When Ama came to the Crimson Peak set in her Loki hood, the AD took a picture of her and e-mailed it to Tom, because he said Tom would love it. I love that even the AD knows what a geek he is about these things.

Um. I may have ordered a bobblehead so...yeah. I'm trying to come to terms with that.

EEee!

It's SO cute. I love projecting my thoughts on to it because the face is blank. I feel like felt!Loki looks 100% done with being made of felt. He's a god, dammit.

He's a loud and proud geek.

Where the hell is our Lestrade? Seriously, we need a grown-up around here.

I think he looks kind of sad, like he's just found out he's a felt Frost Giant, and not a felt Asgardian like he thought.

I made the mistake of reading this at the library because I laughed hard enough to get dirty looks. But...BHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

Sorry. *evil grin*

P.S I now own a copy of a crochet Loki doll pattern. Geeks unite!

Crocheted Black Widow is smiling! Don't trust her!

Ohmigosh yes!

I trust the Bobbleheaded Black Widow more since her expression suggests she'll be up front about kicking your ass.

Ohmigosh yes!

A million points awarded for accuracy in that the arm has a red star design. It's so good.
