Call Me Maybe
Picks up cell phone...
A few of us here at headquarters were looking at our cell phones lately and we realized they were a bit boring looking. We weren't sure what was wrong, but then we realized they needed a few accessories. Your challenge for the next couple of weeks is to create either a cell phone charm or a cell phone dust plug. These should be themed to a Neopets character. Your creation should be made by you. When you submit your entry tell us what your entry is of in the title and why you made what you created in your description. We will judge your entries on creativity, quality, and imagination.
Ten winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 15,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
Fyora dust plug
A little bit of faerie dust is always of great help when you don't want dirty dust to damage your phone. That's why I've created this little cell phone dust plug modeled after our dear faerie queen!
Step 1: I've created the body parts with modeling clay : a. arms; b. old pair of earphone (cut with scissors); c. head; d. legs; e. clothes.
Step 2: I've sticked them together with strong glue.
Step 3 and 4: I've cut the wing's shape in semi-transparent paper and in purple paper.
Step 5: I've finally added the details: eyes, crown, staff.
And this is how I've made this Faerie Queen Cell Phone Dust Plug!
Plush Korbat Dust Plug
Step one- spend a long time getting mad at clay for not moulding into proper wing shapes
Step two- paint using the world's smallest paint brush
Step three- realise it's a bit too big to have on your phone 24/7
My phone always seems to catch icky things in the ear phone jack, so I made Anti-Dust Plugs! I am slightly obsessed with Meepits, so they were my clear inspiration. I studied the Meepits in their natural habitat and formed replicas out of clay, carefully painting the eyes and and other features. I then glued them onto blank plugs. Although no piece of art could truly capture the beauty of a Meepit, I am quite pleased with the end results!
Purple Usul Charm
My Mom likes Purple and Usuls so I decided that would be my charm design. I used Polymer Bake-Clay and sculpted each part to slowly build the body parts. I placed each part down over a toothpick so I would have a hole to put the string through. I added the bow and tail. Then some small details like the hair and mouth. The eyes gave me a hard time trying to get them even. I had to remove them twice and almost gave up but by the third try I was happy with them. I put the finished Usul in the oven to harden. After it cooled I glued in the string and it was ready to go! I plan to give this as a gift to my Mom for this Mother's Day and I know she will love it! OrionGarlic
Mechanized Cellular Assistant
I love the Mechanized Laboratory Assistant, so I figured I'd make one of my own as a dust plug (featured here on my iPod since I needed my phone for the camera). This little guy is made entirely out of polymer clay, except for the dust plug/headphone jack part. Just as dapper and cute as the real thing, though probably not as handy in the case of accidental fires.
Much Charms, Many Tiny
I started with making the Ixi head, but had way too much fun with that, and decided I had to keep going. I ended up adding a Red Paint Brush Charm, a Hanging Fire Korbat, a Stagnant Puddle of Water and a Box of Wheat Flakes.
Chibi-Sloth invades your phone!
I made this Dr. Sloth cell phone charm out of polymer clay. Dr. Sloth is my favorite Neopets villain because he's like the original, old school villain! He's a classic that will never go out of style - and with this phone charm, you'll always be in style too!
Queen Fyora Faerie Queen Doll Charm
This Queen Fyora cell phone charm is modeled after the Faerie Queen Doll. Made out of polymer clay, it took about 2 hours to create and about 30 minutes to bake.
Happy Quiggle Dust Plug
Made entirely out of polymer clay and paint. Because, who wouldn't want a Happy Quiggle on their phone?
Habitarium Cellphone Charms
Great for use keeping dust out of your phone when your busy caring for your little P3s :)
Twenty lucky people have 10,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
Just in time for spring, the ultra stylish Kacheep Charm modeled after the tasty Neopian treat. This non edible Charm is made from polymer clay painted with acrylic paint.
Adorable Boochi Handphone Charm
I made a Boochi handphone charm, since Boochi looks so adorable, and I've been waiting for him to come and blast my bruce into a baby haha...
Chomby Gnome Collectable Charm
I always wanted to own an actual Neopets item, so I decided to create the cute "Chomby Gnome Collectable Charm" with modelling clay!
Pant Devil & Pea Chia Charms
Here is my submission with these two cell phone charm (you can see the cell phone on the picture) made by myself with FIMO.
Lucie the Cybunny
For my cell phone charm, I chose Lucie the Cybunny from Usuki Frenzy because I love Cybunnies. It is made of polymer clay with accents of acrylic paint.
Techo Fanatic Cell Phone Charm
Thanks very much to my patient pug, Butter, and to my cell-phone-collecting roommate! I used no-bake clay, acrylic paint, craft glue, thin hemp cord, nail polish, paint brushes, and a nail dotter tool for detailing.
Collection of Charms
A collection of cellphone charms including a Snowbunny, a Codestone, a Larkin, a Chokato, and a blue Draik Egg. Made with sculpey clay. Details on the Snowbunny, Larkin, and Codestone are painted with acyrlic paint. In the top left corner you can see the snowbunny hanging on my daughter's toy cellphone! The snowbunny even sparkles to match the snow!
What better way to accessorize than with a favorite Neopet?! Mine just so happens to be Kougras. This little girl hangs out with me, making me and my phone cooler! I made this Kougra Dust Plug out of Polymer clay and the tip of a paint brush BUT don't worry though Neopians, it's not from a rare Paint Brush ;)
Asparagus Chia Dust Plug
've never really understood the fascination with asparagus on Neopets, but I do know that I want an Asparagus Chia! I used four colours of modelling clay sculpted around an old headphone plug to make Brian, and detailed him with a knife. While I can't afford an Asparagus Chia just yet, I can make do with this dust plug until I can!
I used colored sculpting clay to recreate several of my favorite petpets (Blue Kadoatie + Green Weewoo*) & petpetpets (Pinchit + Glyme). Since the figurines were so small I wound up having to use a staple to blend the pieces together. Kadoatie was the most difficult, due to the body/head ratio, because when I tried hanging it the weight of the body would decapitate the poor kadoatie. Fortunately, I figured it out in the end. I hope you like them!
Candychan and Tagobo Potion Charms
I made a Candychan speaker plug because I think Candychans are the CUTEST things ever! I went with the Tagobo Potion Collectable Charm for the wrist strap because it is my favorite charm!
I made both of them out of clay and then painted them. The Tagobo Potion is attached to a wrist strap and shown on a Nintendo 3DS in the photo (since my cell phone does not have a wrist strap slot). The Candychan has a plug that goes into the speaker port on your cell phone. I took a broken pair of headphones and removed the plug from it for use.
Ode To A Weewoo
This was a very fun phone charm to make, if not a little tedious. It was rather hard to make the small Weewoo. :) Anyway, I made this Weewoo inspired phone charm because I love the NT and because Weewoos are awesome.
Plushie Wocky Cell Phone Strap
I really love Plushie wockies, so I decided to make a strap with a Plushie Wocky Plushie and a Plushie Wocky Morphing Potion! I used Shrinkie-Dinks and pencils to make miniature copies of the items, and with some matching coloured beads this strap will surely make my phone look snazzy.
For the Cup!
Since the Altador Cup is approaching, I decided to make some charms based on the leaders of each team. Although I ran out of supplies to make all eighteen, I hope I manage to instill some team spirit! This was my first time trying to make something like this: I used shrinking plastic, hot glue, glitter, paint, wire, scissors, colored pencils, and some embroidery thread to make the charms and the strap.
Using modelling clay and thread I created a little asparagus charm to use on my phone because I'm saving up neopoints in hope of having as much as the daily asparagus cost. This little charm will remind me to keep saving.
Slorg Dust Plug
Slorgs are my faaaavorite petpet, and seemed like an obvious choice for a cute cell phone dust plug! I made these fellas out of polymer clay (my first time ever using it; yikes!), then painted all their features on with acrylic paint. Finally, I coated them with glaze, and glued them on the dust plugs. They were pretty fun to make, so I actually ended making a ton! :o)
Hasee Bounce, Jimmi
Ever since Hasee Bounce was released it has been one of my favourite games. It is just so cute and cheerful, especially little Jimmi and Woogy. Of the two, Jimmi is my favourite, mostly because he is purple. So I simply had to make a phone charm of him, he looks so cheerful hanging off my phone! With him I can take my favourite game everywhere with me. He is made of 100% wool which I needle felted and then sewed the charm attachment on to. Those little antenna were so fiddly!
Lucky Cybunny Foot
Lucky Cybunny Foot, Made from polymer clay
Boochi Cell Phone Charm
I confiscated his ray gun before hanging him on my old phone. (my normal one doesn't have the charm entry point)
Island Kacheek Phone Charm
I used Model Magic to create a cell phone charm. I really love my new Island Kacheek, Mayoli, and her flower, so I decided to focus on creating them! I used markers to color the Model Magic, which I then shaped around the string to make sure it wouldn't fall off. Then, I created the flower by using tiny amounts of Model Magic (also colored by marker), which I pressed onto the head. Using a very fine black pen, I drew on the face, and finished off by using some white nail polish to try and get the details just right. Including the experimentation to get the right colors, this took me about three hours to do. Made for a good break during finals week! =)
