Before I put their hair on, all plushies look like Oishi. [Sep. 7th, 2006|12:35 am]

OK, so like, we were in the process of making these plushies I been sittin on for like, 6 months or more, and we finally got to the part where I'm gonna iron the faces on. I saved this part for nearly last cuz it's a big pain in the ass and I wanted to make sure I had the ability to sew plushies before I did it.
That was a bad idea.

So, I got this little iron that is made specifically for projects like this. It's shaped a bit like one of those long fireplace lighter-things, but with a foot at the end of the stem-thing. And a handle, so I can hold it without injuring myself.

Did you know that aside from setting anything on fire or injury, there are a great many other things that can go wrong when an iron is involved?

OK, first? I messed up on the iron transfer part, and a bit of iron-on transfer got congealed on the foot of the iron! So, I had to get it off with peanut butter. Then, I had to get the peanut butter off, and Yukimura turned out fine (his hair is dark purplish-brownish, not black. and not blue, like in the anime. We don't like the blue.)

So I got all the peanut butter off the foot of the iron, but I forgot about the stem and so the peanut butter caramelized when it got hot, and the caramelized peanut butter got on Renji's ear and made A HOLE!

So, I let the iron cool off and tried to get the caramelized peanut butter off, but it's like fingernail polish when it's cool! So, I sed, OK, rather than spend another hour cleaning that, I'll just protect Sanada's ear with some wax-paper stuff and it'll be fine.
But what happens? The caramelized peanut butter touched his FACE, and made A HOLE!!!!

Renji is going to be fine, but I think we're going to have to do some serious surgery on Sanada. (i.e., face transplant!)

Yeah, I know what yer thinkin. You're thinking they all have bizarre hedz and look mushy! Well, that's because they have bizarre hedz and they're mushy. At this stage. Later, they will be filled with polyester stuffing and hair will be added so they don't all look like they got a haircut by Oishi's mom. Also, they will be wearing clothing instead of running around in their underwear.
The plan is for Sanada to get his kendo-training outfit, and Renji and Yukimura are gonna get the Rikkai kimono that Bunta is wearing on the cover of the "Brand new day" single.
I'm not insanedrop trou!
