Halo Grunt Plushie by randomflyingpigeons Halo Grunt Plushie by randomflyingpigeons
This plushie has been sold to a buyer in Louisiana. God speed, gruntie!

--------------------------------

"What is love? Baby, don't hurt me. Don't hurt me, no more..."

I'll bet you now have the SNL sketch running through your head.

I thought of it because this poor little grunt just wants love, rather than all that tricky war stuff...or sticky grenades...or confetti...

Poor little cuddly cannon fodder.

I actually started this plushie last summer, waaaay before I made my "Random" plushie, but had to stop working on it in order to build my Jackal costume. (Technically this is my first plushie I've made...so yeah. Not good quality because of lack of experience, but you know.) Since it's now summer and I have all the time in the world, I figured I'd finally get around to finishing this little guy.

He measures about 2' 3" from head to feet, or 2'6" from feet to the tip of his methane tank. He is hand sewn, because I do not have a sewing machine (ugh) and I didn't use a pattern because I don't like doing things in an orderly, pre-planned fashion. So, sorry in advance to anyone who might want to make their own. I just make shit up as I go along.

His design is based on a combination of the Halo 1 & 2 grunts and the Halo 3 grunts. I also took some creative license with the details of the armor because I didn't want it to be overwhelming...which it is, and that's how I messed up. Oh well.

Also, I purposely used black thread. I was trying to go for some kind of cutesy hand-made look. Not sure if it worked or not, but I figured it was worth a shot.

I heart him ^_^

Unfortunately, I did not. I am not very good at pre-designing stuff. It bores me. :P

Wow! Looking good :) I'm in the middle of making one myself at the moment, although a lack of time isn't helping me much. Hand sewing it must have taken you ages, it took me long enough to hand sew one of my Flood and that's only about the size of my hand, so kudos to you for this mammoth effort :) Can I ask what materials you used for the armour? It looks like you've used denim for the skin, am I right?

Oh god, it took forever. It's such a tedious task! I need a sewing machine.

The orange parts of the armor are just orange fabric, the silver is mostly some kind of satiny material (which was a terrible pain to sew, good lord it tore so easily). I painted some silver details on, however, as well as some black details. The skin is some kind of denim-like material. It's kind of like a denim mixed with a metallic kind of fabric, it's not as soft as denim. I wish I knew more about these things...sorry!

Okay :) I think I've worked out what they are from looking closely at the picture :P hehe.

Save up for a machine? :) I know the biggest thing stopping me getting one is the price.

Yeah, same here. Plus, I don't sew things very often, so I have to weigh that as well. I do want one eventually, though. Maybe when I am a rich person someday :P

I see you decided to go with a heart instead of the patch. Nice choice; it makes the character really cute.
