Phew. I’m still slightly bummed that I wasn’t able to make as many critters as I wanted to this year due to a hand injury, but I’ve got seven little buddies of my own to take with me to Comic-Con next week! Here’s the final roundup of adoptees for San Diego Comic-Con 2017!
Classic Batman & Penguin:
With Adam West’s passing, this inadvertently turned into a tribute piece, but otherwise they’ll be wreaking plenty of campy havoc at SDCC!
The thing I love about Deadpool is that he can be accessorized with just about ANYTHING. This one is based on a NSFW unicorn gag from the movie!
Will he be at San Diego Comic-Con to bargain? For a few exclusives, maybe. 🙂
Superman has been a “regular” for my drops since I started in 2011, and this will be his seventh year getting stranded in San Diego!
“I’M MARY POPPINS, Y’ALL!” One of the most popular lines from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I loved how it also took into account that in the alien universe, Yondu has no clue that Mary is a female name when he asks “is he cool?” The worst nanny ever will be dropping into SDCC next week!
The final addition to my lineup this year! After I injured my hand making Yondu Poppins, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to finish this one up before Comic-Con rolled around, but here she is!
Can’t find a critter in the wild? There’s also going to be 3 critters available as raffle prizes if you donate blood at the Comic-Con Blood Drive!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!!
Since I wasn’t able to make as many critters as I wanted this year, I made an open call for guest art. And guys. Artists from around the country and as far as the Czech Republic sent me THIRTY-SEVEN pieces for me to drop. Check them all out HERE!
And if you haven’t done so already, read the 2017 critterdrop guidelines. It’ll help.
That brings me to a total of 44 critters to drop. Holy crap. HO-LY CRAP. I’ll admit I’m nervous about dropping so many because I feel a certain responsibility to make sure all the guest critters find new homes. It’s one thing if some of my own work goes missing, but I’d feel terrible if someone else’s hard work went unanswered. I’ve recruited help with the drops, but it’s still a lot. The drops have generally been a one-woman show all these years, so 1) taking in work from others, and 2) recruiting people to help with the drops are both new processes to me this year. Hopefully all will go well, fingers crossed for a 100% response rate on all 44 pieces this year!
If you want to join my hunt for crocheted critters at San Diego Comic-Con this year, follow me on either twitter or facebook to track my drops! I just ask for two things if you find a critter: 1) Send me a photo of your new friend! 2) Let me know where the little buddy’s new home will be! Good luck, and happy hunting!
