First of all, this is best if you know what the show Adventure Time is like.
Second, this is better if you’re familiar with Lemongrab: http://youtu.be/mGGFuWkSRZY
I made my brother watch the video and he didn’t seem to think it’s as hilarious as I do. In any case, my close friend at school (for whom the cake pops were made) thinks Lemongrab is actually cute.
If I can think of something, I like to get/make things for people that are long-lasting, i.e. baking things for birthdays is nice but I like being able to point at things and say that I got it from this person for this reason. So I decided to make my friend a Lemongrab doll.
I accidentally spent Saturday baking, so I only started the doll around 8pm. I had drawn up the sketches the night before, and I’ll state right now that there are no good pictures of these drawings (because of camera quality! Previous experience has shown that I’m a very skilled artist). I had to wake up early the next day to go back to school so I ended up rushing, and a lot of my stitching is not very good quality.
I even skipped out on stuffing his arms and legs, but he’s so spindly that it worked out. Actually, he was supposed to have fingers, but that didn’t work out, so he ended up with small rectangles for hands. They worked out because his arms turned into L-shapes that sort of give him balance.
I finished all the sewing on Saturday, and made his accessories (belt, sword, … face) out of paper when I got back to school. It makes him look extra cartoony, and I like it that way.
In the episode where Lemongrab is introduced, there’s a prank with a sign:
I altered the font a bit to make the doll a sign.
The final result:
(If you’ve ever seen Bridget Jones’ Diary, my favourite thing to come out of that movie is, “I like you, just as you are.”)
(I hope you watched the clip of Lemongrab, because he’s known for yelling, “UNACCEPTABLE”)
(Apparently the only projects that come out mostly successfully are the sewing ones.)
