I've been making some Final Fantasy amigurumi lately, and thought you might enjoy seeing them.

First up, a baby chocobo! The eyes aren't as cute as the model from the pattern, but I didn't have any felt so I worked with what I had. Still pretty pleased with the results.

Then we have a Mandragora. I first encountered this model in FFXI, but they show up in XII and XIV as well.

And finally, my favorite, a Moogle. I'm especially pleased with how his face came out. Yeah, I know his wings are supposed to be purple but I didn't have any purple yarn, so I used navy blue instead. Eventually I'll correct it, but I'm really pleased with how it is so far.

Very impressive! I think my favourite is the Tonberry. He even has his little knife!

Posted by: Rangers51 17th September 2016 21:08
Yeah, I'm with Cefca. I get why you're fond of the Moogle, he's really excellent too, but that Tonberry rocks it. In the style, his cloak turns into an adorable little hooded sweater. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the compliments! I can see why the Tonberry is popular. He's my second favorite of the group. A friend on another site said that this pattern makes him look friendly, LOL. I was just happy to find a free pattern, as the one I had originally queued was a paid pattern and I don't have money to spend right now.

Here's the patterns I used, in case anyone else wants to make one.

Hi Althea! Thanks for pointing me to this thread from another one. You've done some great work.

I have done a lot of amigurumi, but none for final fantasy, which is odd considering the possibilities.

If you don't mind, though, I'd like to share a photo of a Baby Groot that I made:

Also, a random bat, which is one of my favs:

Your Baby Groot is very good, and I love your bat! wub.gif Bats are one of my favorite animals.

I finished Rain and Lasswell from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius yesterday! I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. Their bodies are crocheted in one piece, which I'll definitely do again as it's much easier than sewing limbs on. Their clothes are knitted. I basically took adult sized clothing patterns and scaled them way down.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and the characters, but the ones you made look very good smile.gif

I haven't been around the forums much lately because I've been busy (I missed most of the Regalia voting cry.gif ). One of the things that kept me busy was more Final Fantasy crafting! Here's my latest.

First up is Rinoa! I have an acquaintance who has admired my other amigurumi, but lamented that she couldn't make them herself because she didn't know how to crochet. "Challenge accepted!" I thought to myself, and swore my next one would be entirely knitted. I made Rinoa completely from scratch, using techniques I've picked up from other patterns. I'm tickled that my nefarious plans actually worked out! Rinoa's not perfect - I don't like her hair and she came out cock-eyed because I placed the eyes before stuffing the head - but I'm still really pleased with her!

Here is White Knight Noel from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. I made him for FFBE's Best Holiday Greetings contest, and I am pleased to say he's a finalist. I'm not getting many votes, alas, so I won't win the contest, but at least I get 500 lapis for making the top 20!

I was about to comment on how cute all of these were and then I saw the CoN logo one. Pandering to the audience will get you everywhere.

Posted by: AltheaValara 20th June 2018 21:48
Rangers51, I'd been wanting to turn the CoN logo into a hot pad for a while, so it was fun to finally do it! I think it turned out well.

Another one for my collection! This is Maritime Strategist Nichol from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius:

https://flic.kr/p/25DpwFf by https://www.flickr.com/photos/althea_valara/ so you can see what he looks like in game.

Posted by: Harlequin 22nd June 2018 02:43
Very cool and cute work! I know Nichol because my friend likes FFBE and she was telling me about his sister, Luka!

Posted by: AltheaValara 9th July 2018 22:16
Thank you!

I've been replaying FFBE's story lately, and have reached Olderion which is where Luka, Nichol, and Elle's story takes place. I love all of FFBE's story, but theirs especially. It was good to see it again, though I admit I got a bit teary-eyed.

Great work on these! They're all so endearing!

Posted by: AltheaValara 8th August 2018 00:21
Thank you! Next up is Coro from Star Ocean:Anamnesis. As soon as I first saw him in the game, I knew I wanted to make him.

Posted by: AltheaValara 16th September 2018 00:14
As promised, here is Coro from Star Ocean:Anamnesis! his body shape is not quite right (he's actually triangular in game) but his features are spot on.

https://flic.kr/p/NYFkxJ by https://www.flickr.com/photos/althea_valara/https://flic.kr/p/NYFkGb, on Flickr

He was indeed a challenge to make. I learned a lot while crocheting him. Not sure if I've really captured him well, but I'm pretty pleased that I figured out how to turn heels in crochet and do colorwork.

It looks like a demented clown, so it definitely works.

I especially like the Chocobo one, what with it being double-sided with two different colors of chocobo.

Posted by: St Khael 6th September 2019 18:54
I need all of them. But mostly...the Kefka...to drag around while in cosplay...for reasons...creepy...creepy reasons...

Posted by: AltheaValara 13th September 2019 22:39
I mentioned in other threads that I was working on a shawl to wear to the Distant Worlds concert tomorrow. Itís finished! I posted a pic on Twitter, here:

GMH: thanks! The chocobo square is my favorite as well. It really came out nice.

St Khael: I would love to see what you would do with Kefka!

I'd carry him around by one little arm with a wide, dead eyed gaze while in my Terra cosplay...after I craft a slave crown of course. >_>;
