Random Contest Winners!
Every week or so we have a new Random Contest. The rules and events vary from competition to competition. Below are the winners from the last contest. If you'd like to enter the current contest, wander on over to the Random Contest submission form and have a look at what the currently silly task is. If you think you're up for it, give it a shot and submit your entry.
Warm and Plush
Awwwww... With a holiday break approaching many people will be enjoying some free time. They find themselves wondering what they should do! Here at Neopets Headquarters we have an idea for you. So in celebration of winter and this break, we are asking you to create winter themed plushies. (You may use foam balls, etc for a foundation) You may create plushies of characters, Neopets, Petpets, or even some items around the site, but they must be Neopets themed. The plushie should be completely made by you. Please tell us what you used to make your Plushie and why you made the one you did in the description. We will judge entries based on cuteness (awwww), creativity, and how awesome they are. :)
Eight winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 15,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
Christmas Chomby Plushie
The Christmas Chomby Plushie is definitely one of the cutest winter-themed plushie designs to me, so I decided to make a real one out of wool with needle felting. I felted a little hat as well but I think it looks just as cute without it.
Meepit and Slorg
Materials Used: Felt, Scissors, Needle and Thread, Fabric Glue, Fiberfill
I choose to make the snowbeast because I feel the poor guy is often misunderstood. He's big with sharp horns and teeth, but he can't help it. Sure, he snacks on petpets, but not neopets or neopians. (Not often, anyway). I wanted to show his more cuddly and warm (no pun intended) side. He's made of white, tan and blue yarn from a crocheting hook and is packed with recycled plastic bags. They're environmentally friendly and they make him sound like freshly fallen snow when you hug him. And of course, button eyes, because cuteness is in the eye of the beholder.
I put all the info how I made him in the image, I hope you guy enjoy him! I love my cute lil sketch eyrie to bits!
Peophin in the Snowy Land
To make this plushie I used fleece as the main material, buttons for eyes, and my own hands! The markings are embroidered. I decided to make a Peophin because my best NeoFriend loves them, so it was also a gift for her.
Christmas Lupe Plushie
Lupes have always been my favorite pet, and I wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge- I have prior sewing experience but I've never made clothes for a plushie before, so a Christmas Lupe seemed like the perfect subject for me! I created my Lupe out of seven kinds of fluffy fake fur fabric, and filled it with stuffing. I sewed it with a machine and by hand, and the eyes are made from vinyl fabric and oval-shaped teddy bear noses. This Lupe came out HUGE, a little over 2 feet/.6 meters long, so I had to reinforce the legs with dowel rods to make sure he stands up on his own. I’m excited by how well it turned out, he’s so cuddly!
Christmas Acko Plushie
Who wouldn't want their own Christmas Acko Plushie that really lights up?! I know I would, which is why I was on a mission to create one. I used fabric, needle & thread, polyester fill, and a battery powered string of lights. After many, many hours of sewing, a few tears of frustration, and several nicks from the needle, the Christmas Acko was lit! He is good for cuddling, being used as a nightlight, or simply stick him in a Christmas tree for a friendly game of 'Where's the Acko?' Happy Holidays!
Wolverine the Snicklebeast
Meet Wolverine, a crocheted Snicklebeast. I wanted to be able to give life (er, fluff) to my own Snicklebeast, who I received in the Year 6 Advent Calendar and is now more than 7 years old. I made him by crochet using yarn, buttons and lots of love!
Sixteen lucky people have 10,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
Yarn, cotton balls, buttons, string and pipe cleaners were all used to make these. I made them because the Abominable Snowball was one of the first petpets I have ever gotten when I joined neopets and when I think of a winter petpet, these pop into my head.
A Christmas Kad
I made a Kadoatie because I love them! They remind me of kittens and they're so cute! Also, after feeding so many at the Kadoatery I got a little addicted to everything related to these little guys, so I thought there was nothing better for me to do than a Christmas Kadoatie!
The plushie was made with the following materials: Felt, Fiber, Thread, Scissors
Not a Good Day to Work Outside
Plushie Donny just wanted to take his work outside today and enjoy the fresh snow. After a group of rowdy young Neopets threw a snowball at him, he tore his arm trying to retaliate! Thankfully, he has plenty of supplies on hand to fix up his injury. I made this plushie using my own original patterns, and it took about 4 full days to complete. I made his beard, goatee, and eyebrows by sewing down pink yarn then unraveling it and combing it out to make it floofy. His sewing needle is simply a broken paperclip that I bent using pliers. His claws are made from a large fake plastic light bulb that I cut into sections, then I cut each section to a point and painted it using a black acrylic paint marker. (Watch out, troublemaking youngsters; his claws are sharp!)
Christmas Lenny Plushie
It's a christmas lenny plush made with fabric, ribbons, synthetic fiber, buttons, beads and wire. Wings, legs, beak were all sewn in the body. The tapes were sewn in the legs and neck. The beads are in the neck. The wire was used to attach the tail feathers.
Candychan with scarf
The candychan has always been one of my favourite wintery petpets, and one that I'll probably never afford to have ;) I'd added a blue scarf to keep it warm for the winter! An extra dose of cute, I'd say! The plushie is made from 5 different colours of yarn by crocheting and stuffed with pillow stuffing.
Even Evil Negg Has Christmas Spirit
Anyone can be cheered by the holidays; even this Evil Negg has been spotted sporting a less menacing, jollier cape, reminiscent of those classic ugly Christmas sweaters. You can also spot a Fir in the midst of the wintery landscape (who knew the Evil Negg had a liking for Firs?)!
Materials used were felt, stuffing, thread, scissors, and fabric glue for the smaller decorative pieces.
chia christmas plushie
Materials: Needle and Thread, Scissors, Felt, Fabric Glue, Fiberfill
I'm Dreaming of A White Ona
Terror Mountain is my favorite land to explore in all of Neopia. Whether it’s trying my luck at the Scratch Card Kiosk; sneaking past the Snowager to steal a bit of its treasure (and secretly wishing that it wakes up to blast me and my pets, so that I have a chance at the avatar), or simply hanging about Mika and Carassa’s place in the hopes that they’ll get rid of valuable junk, there’s always something fun and interesting to do in Terror Mountain. Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time at the Wintery Petpets Shop in the hopes of buying a Wherfy (or two!), which is how I became inspired to make a Wintery Petpet plushie.
I think choosing which Wintery Petpet to make was the most difficult part (as they’re all quite enchanting!), but I decided on the White Ona because its description as a “cute little Petpet that just wants to be hugged” made it sound like it would make the perfect plushie.
To make the White Ona, I designed outlines of its head, body, arms, wings, and antennae onto pieces of white felt. Then, I cut out the felt outlines, making sure to make two identical copies of each part (for the front and back of the plushie). Using a sewing machine, I sewed together each set of identical outlines - making sure to leave a gap for stuffing - to create the body of the White Ona. Afterwards, I stuffed the different parts of the White Ona with cotton balls and assembled the Petpet using a needle and thread. Last, I designed and cut out different pieces of felt and then glued the pieces onto the White Ona to decorate its face/body.
Christmas Kookith Plushie
I made a Christmas Kookith Plushie because since I received one from the advent calendar in Y8 I have loved it ever since. I made my plushie with green and red felt sewing the pieces together by hand. I filled the feet with a little rice to make them heavier. The main part of the plushie is completely filled with fluff to make it extra huggable!
Skipping Shopkeeper Usul
I chose her because I like usuls and I already had an unfinished plush usul. I have made it from cloth, its face features are sewed from crewel and it is stuffed with wad.
I sewed the hasee out of fleece, hand embroidered on this orange stripes made of felt, and sculpted the beads on his antenna out of polymer clay. For the hat, I upcycled an old red fleece jacket and the faux fur from a pair of Christmas socks. His beard is remnant fun fur. The yellow and icy doughnutfruits are made of felt. To set the scene, I made felt trees and icicles from a plastic water bottle. I made a hasee because it's OMG. Hasee yeah!
I made this plushie of the wintery petpet Wreathy using roving wool and a felting needle, and Neofoam stuffing.
This is my Christmas Chomby plushie that I created with yarn and stuffed with cotton. I stitched and crocheted everything by hand. I enjoy making toys and this was a perfect opportunity to make my first neopet. This Chomby is very festive with candy cane swirl spikes, and a colorful wreath. My favorite part is the mistletoe on his forehead.
Thanks, Corbin & Kell!
On Advent Calendar Day 22, Kell takes a big bag full of presents, who will receive these gifts? The Mini-Monster? The kid will be happy to receive these! The objects I used to make this plushie (and gifts) are: nonwoven fabric, cotton, cotton thread, ribbon, color-paper, a piece of paper tape
The materials I used were camel-colored felt, sticky white felt, needle & thread, 2 large and 2 small red buttons, scissors, and pom poms (for stuffing). I decided to create a Jinjah to represent the first year (2013) I made gingerbread man cookies. They didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, so I took a try at making a better one that would last forever!
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little... Tree
O' Christmas nova
O' Christmas nova
Are you the tree?
Or do you go on top of one?
This confused little guy would just love to be squished on and cherished forever! He's crocheted in 11 pieces, and stuffed to the gills with fiber fill and yarn scraps. ^.^
