anime hama beads
#1
Brick 
As of a week before Genericon, I've started an interesting hobby, which is making anime-themed figures out of Hama Beads, or Perler Beads -- They're those colored beads you arrange and iron to make them stick together Big Grin

(#1 -- Eevee)
A week before Genericon, the UNYCosplay team created Eevee, which I was very happy with.

It sold at Genericon within an hour of being displayed! Then, throughout the weekend, we received requests for another Eevee and a Pikachu! That was when I knew I was on to something Smile

(#2 -- Pachirisu)
This weekend, I created the 2nd piece, another pokemon:

It is Pachirisu, the 417th pokemon, a cute blue squirrel Smile It didn't come out quite like I wanted, but I still like it :3

Next I'm thinking about possibly doing Pikachu. Ideas (and maybe even pixel art!) are more than welcome.

FYI, the square peg board I'm working with is 29x29 beads long/wide :>

Well, I was experimenting today on how to transport a bead formation which hasn't been ironed yet, and came up with a kind of neat (although non-Pokemon) formation, so I decided to iron it.

I hope to create 1 or 2 Pokemon this weekend at BadCon... perhaps something pink!

I want to see more pics. Super cute! You should make a piplup if you're making pokemon
