So this little guy had one of the most involved outfits I’ve ever crocheted. This is Azkaban, a level 80 Blood Elf warlock character from Blizzard’s World of Warcraft. He was commissioned by my co-worker Brendan who patiently waited for several weeks while I fiddled with the details on his custom Sackboy.
Additional photos and details here:
Azkaban wears a full-length A-line robe with gold crochet thread chain trim, an olive cloak with silver border, gold and blue removable gauntlets, and burgundy shoulder pads with black tentacles and gold and red crochet thread epaulettes. I don’t think I’ve ever used so many colors in a single project before in my life.
His epic grade Frostscythe weapon was sculpted out of Sculpey II and painted with silver acrylic paint. It was finished off with a layer of Dutch blue acrylic paint diluted with clear varnish to make a transparent blue wash.
