THE POWER OF DOLL-KIRK COMPELS YOU!



So littlemissgriff made me a Kirk doll, and he stands cheerfully on guard on my desk. Today is a ridiculous Monday and I am resisting the urge to carry him to my afternoon meetings for comfort.

Er. I am not frontally gifted enough to make that work. In fact, people would ask why I have some sort of appendage growing out of my chest.

Awww, adorable. You should totally take him and shake him at people that annoy you. :D

Take him! He will protect you from the evil! Because we all know, some meetings can turn evil!

A) It's a little crocheted Kirk - adorable!

B) You know what he needs?

One of those voice-recorder tab-thingies you can get at Build-A-Bear Workshop, that you put in the teddybear, and then when you squeeze it, it sounds like the bear is talking to you.

In this particular case, perhaps an audioclip of the podfic might suffice? Or else, "I don't believe in no-win scenarios," for when you need a pep talk?

OMG you are BRILLIANT!! *_*

Do you have any idea what they call them?! I could get one and put Great NuKirk Quotes on it!!!!

*_*

"I don't believe in no-win scenarios."

"Well...not only."

"What, are you nuts?!"

"You call this a favor?!"

"Stardate, 2258.2...or 4..or...whatever."

*_*

WANT LIKE BURNING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it seems I'm a little late to the party, but... I think the ones at Build-a-Bear are $8.00, and you can find 'em in most malls. Or, there's this online shop: https://www.bdaybears.com/sound-chip-for-stuffed-animal/recordable-sound-chip.html (though the sound clip isn't that long - I suppose you could put different quotes in each hand and foot, and he'd say different things depending on where you squeezed him...)

Okay, now I want to go out to JoAnn's, and buy a bolt of polarfleece, and make a giant Bones plushie with different cuss-words depending on where you hug him.

Why do you give me ideas?!
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 03:47 am (UTC)
Can you make me one too????????
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 03:52 am (UTC)
I'm thinking, something kinda like this guy, though not so British. Whaddaya think?
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
I think thou art amazing!!!

If you were able to make me one, could you maybe make him like a foot tall so he can sit on my desk with Doll!Kirk?

*hopeful puppy eyes*

Ack! I'm just brainstorming! I haven't used an actual sewing machine in at least three years!

...but I will keep the height requirements in mind.

(Also, what's your position on the legs/no legs conundrum?)
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:04 am (UTC)
(Legs preferable, otherwise I have to come up with a story as to what happened to him. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HAVE TO MAKE UP STORIES!!)

LOL, also no real pressure for anything, seriously, I just get ridiculously excited easily. :) :)
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
No, but - now I really want to make a plushie. I haven't sewn in such a long time (though I have a boxful of amigurumis of varrying competency levels sitting in my garage right now, with all the other packed boxes, looking for a new home should anyone need a stuffed crochet friend of unknown breeding and parentage....), and it's eating at my brain. I'm actually trying to figure out if I can make it to JoAnn's tomorrow afternoon, or if I should wait 'til the weekend and sketch a pattern first.

*is bad example*

Do eet, do eet. And take pictures and put them on your blog so ignorant fools like me can learn something mebbe!! :D

What, like actually remember to take pictures of the in-between steps, so that others can follow along tutorial-style?

Hmmm.....okay. Supply List:

- blue polar fleece for shirt.
- black polar fleece for pants/feet
- brown polar fleece for hair
- taupe polar fleece for face/hands
- butcher paper for pattern (it's probably going to be far more like an Ugly Doll in construction, than a Steiff bear)
- buttons for eyes? those cool glass ones, that look kinda like Beanie Baby eyes? (QUICK - WHAT COLOR EYES DOES BONES HAVE?)
- sewing machine (screw thread color changes, no-one will notice the seams anyway)
- recordable sound chips (I'm thinking five: both hands, both feet, and....other)
- Movie!

Can you think of anything else?

TOS Bones has blue eyes, AOS Bones has hazel eyes.

*chinhands* *can't wait to see this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*

Argh.

This has grown a life of it's own.

Next up: Chuckie!Bones........dun dun dun......

Dammit, Reena, he's a DOCTOR, not a horror franchise!!
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 04:34 am (UTC)
I suppose he's not a pincushion or a body pillow, either?
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:36 am (UTC)
Definitely not a pincushion. He is, however, totally a body pillow--at least according to Jim. ;)

May. 11th, 2011 04:40 am (UTC)
EEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEE!

I just had an idea.

How can I make a plush hypospray to velcro on Bones' hand?
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:42 am (UTC)
I bet if you could find a bit of grey foam straw thing, and/or those fuzzy wirey things, that would work. (I'm sorry, I have no idea what any of that stuff is called. :/ )
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 04:45 am (UTC)
Pipe cleaners? Yeah, that might work.....
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:47 am (UTC)
YES!! And if you got a grey bumpy one, that might do on its own! :)
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
Hmmm... or maybe this guy, but I don't know if I'd be able to get all those details exactly the same.
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:00 am (UTC)
Holy cow! *is in awe of people who can do stuff*
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 04:04 am (UTC)
Right? I love flipping through Craftster, and seeing all the neat things people have put together.......and then I rush off to Michael's and OD on craft supplies. It's a bad habit :-(
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:05 am (UTC)
It's like me and research. I come up with an idea and then I've been very bad at Amazon and even worse at the library...

Are we talking Sexy Librarian Eyeglasses, now?
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:13 am (UTC)
Uh, no. Just books. Lots of them. Like, seriously, I OD on Roman cavalry histories and Iranian mythology and Anglo Saxon poetry, and don't even get me STARTED on zines!!!!
reena_jenkins
May. 11th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
See, when I go to Amazon or the big Borders in the City, it's "Oh, look! Crochet motif patterns here, audiobook murder mysteries there," and then grabbing, "How To Make Sock Monkey Monsters" for perusing at the in-house Starbucks.
caitri
May. 11th, 2011 04:22 am (UTC)
That's because you aren't insane, unlike me. ;)

Keeping the underwear model version to yourself, I see. Also, what good is a Kirk!Doll if he can't go on dangerous away missions with you?
