Deadpool? No, DOLLPOOL! - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...

Deadpool? No, DOLLPOOL!
HEY YOU GUYS! Are you ready for the Coolest Thing Ever? You’d better be, because he is here, in this entry, live and in person, and his name is...Dollpool!

So, yeah, remember when I mentioned that Secret Craft Project vwlphb has been working on this past week? Well, that Secret Project came about because when we went to see Coraline, I was telling her about my plans to make the Deadpool Doll, and she got to wondering if, perhaps, some version of Deadpool could be crocheted (since she is skilled in such arts). So for the last week, there has been much consultation as well as a flurry of photos and image links back and forth regarding such age-old questions as what the back of Deadpool’s harness *really* looks like; and finally, today when we got together for lunch and movies, I got to hold in my excited little hands the finished product! To take home and keep for my very own! And take pictures of and post about on LiveJournal! So now, I give you, the one, the only...Dollpool!





Just in case some of you don't know who Deadpool is (although how could you not if you read my journal at all) he's my favorite Marvel character. Here's a picture of him. And now, on to Dollpool!

First, courtesy of vwlphb, we have The Making of Dollpool:

She started by making the head and body:



And then moved on to arms and legs and his black patches:



And then to the all-important Deadpool-brand accessories:



And finally, he was finished (note the amazing tiny pouches and harness and belt buckle! Also his tiny little mask seams! vwlphb is amazing!):















Isn't he awesome??

vwlphb gave Dollpool to me when I got to Oyamel for lunch (and I gave her some homemade cookies, which weren’t nearly as cool). He was so adorable I wanted to hold onto him, but of course fear of getting guacamole on him caused me to put him back in the gift bag until later. Once we got to the E Street Cinema for the Oscar-nominated animated short films, I judged it safe for Dollpool to come out and watch the movies with us. As both vwlphb and Taskmaster are wont to observe, Dollpool is unpredictable. Thus, we saw him laughing at Oktapodi, dancing along with Gopher Broke (well, the music *was* catchy!), and, yes, shedding one tiny little tear during Le Maison en Petits Cubes (hey, he’s totally in touch with his feminine side). He thought the shorts were very enjoyable, although he wondered if he might have to cut a bitch when a power surge caused us to miss a little part of Le Maison en Petits Cubes. Fortunately they gave us refunds, and Dollpool is nothing if not a fan of free stuff, so he didn’t make a fuss.

Once I got him home, Dollpool had some adventures making sense of his new surroundings:

Superhero Squad Deadpool and Tiny Cheesecake Deadpool are suspicious of the invader. Dollpool offers a friendly greeting to his smaller counterparts, who are, after all, armed with sharp pointy things, of which he currently has none (although those pouches are full of mystery, and, possibly, knives. One never knows). A yarn doll can’t be too careful.



The mini Deadpools decide Dollpool is One of Them, and therefore, does not need to be stabbed.



Dollpool is fond of Tiny Cheesecake Deadpool, probably because Tiny Cheesecake Deadpool comes with guns and GRENADES. Which Dollpool will definitely want to borrow at some point.



Dollpool explores the floor, where he is distressed to meet The White Spy, a mysterious figure who is brimming with Nefarious Intentions. Also: bombs. (Where are those grenades when you need them?)



However, he is much enamored of the beautiful Ms. Harley Quinn, who he thinks has excellent fashion sense. (Is it me, or do I own only red, white, and black dolls? Um.)



Sadly, she is not as impressed with him.



Dollpool is saddened by Ms. Quinn’s haughty demeanor.



But he’ll get by with a little help from his friends.



To cheer him up, they send over Mr. Curiosity Mood Beam.



Who sympathizes:



This cheers Dollpool, who celebrates by getting in the way of a photo of Posterized Deadpool. If Dollpool had fingers, he’d be doing bunny ears right about here:



Now contented, Dollpool settles happily into his new home:



SO. CUTE.

(pls. note if you see crappy romantic comedies on my shelf, the sole reason I own most of them is for either Johnny Depp or RDJr. They do not necessarily reflect my general taste in movies...skyblade. Just my taste in actors.)

(Also, speaking of Deadpool, I should really include a shot of the new poster I got last time I was at the comic book store, which is badass.)



And I should mention that my awesome affiliate, The Deadpool Bugle, one-stop shop for all the newest Deadpool news, has just been linked by MTV and Rob Liefeld. Coolness!

Also also, vwlphb gave me two great Coraline buttons, too.



In summary, Dollpool is awesome, and so is vwlphb. SQUEE!

Some things simply require capslock:

THIS DOLL IS THE BEST THING EVER!

....he's SO CUTE! So, so, cuuu~uute. Loving the tiny pouches.

And that poster really is pretty damn awesome as well. Ahh, so much Deadpool-y goodness. <3

ISN'T HE JUST??

He looks good on my shelf, but he may also have to sit on my bed sometimes. SO CUTE!

Now, if only I could gain some momentum on my Deadpool Doll.
vwlphb From: vwlphb Date: February 20th, 2009 02:18 am (UTC) (current file)
Haha, I love this! Poor shot down Deadpool. I love him in front of the poster. He looks so happy with the arms up. Like "Hurray!"

It's so funny to look at those first pictures when the neck was like four rounds shorter. He looked so stumpy.

I'm glad you like the new addition to your collection :)
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 20th, 2009 02:24 am (UTC) (current file)
He makes me so happy! Also, he is fun to make up stories about, apparently. :) And maybe Ms. Quinn will come around one day. It could get awfully lonely on that shelf.

Awwww...Dollpool is the most adorable wee yarn psycho ever.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 20th, 2009 02:32 am (UTC) (current file)
Hee. "Adorable wee yarn psycho." It should be his nickname.

Omgggg, he is so cuuuute!!! What a great gift! His maker is very talented with the crochet hook!

He looks so squishy and soft! Is he bendable? His arms seem to hold themselves up just fine. :DD

Also, that Deadpool poster is quite terrific...especially the rippling muscles. Ahem.

Coraline pins are cute! I just got my Coraline doll in the mail today and she is so gorgeous! I'll probably post pictures soon. :DD
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 20th, 2009 03:15 am (UTC) (current file)
He's got moveable arms and legs, and is somewhat squishy. :)

Also, that Deadpool poster is quite terrific...especially the rippling muscles. Ahem.

AGREED.

Oh, yes, I want to see pics of Coraline. Actually, that is what vwlphb is thinking of crocheting next. I can't wait to see how she turns out. :)

Wait 'til Battle Dice Deadpool and Heroclix Deadpool arrive (why yes, I did find two more 1" tall Deadpool figures on eBay, why do you ask?). Hee!

I know, right? I seem to have acquired several Deadpool items without really intending to start a collection, heh.

Dollpool is the best!

OMG HE IS SOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Aw, I'm so jealous! I just want to reach into my computer monitor and snuggle him. *squeee!*

Long-distance snuggles are permitted. *g*

ZOMG that's so fucking awesome!

I know next to nothing about Deadpool - apart from what I've gleaned from yourself - but I wants your Dollpool. SO. MUCH.
Kudos to vwlphb.

She is a wonder, isn't she? She pretty much made up the pattern. I am in awe.

That. Is. The. Cutest. Thing. EVER.
Especially the belt and the harness. Just... UGH. Cuteness overload!
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 20th, 2009 11:56 pm (UTC) (current file)
Aren't they great? She did such neat little details. :)
gwynevere1 From: gwynevere1 Date: February 20th, 2009 10:42 pm (UTC) (current file)
I saw everyone squeeing over this at Snarkfest, and my though process went: "Nothing can be that good [CLICK]...Oh MY GOD, that's the CUTEST THING EVER!"

ISN'T IT? :)
nix_xon From: nix_xon Date: February 25th, 2009 12:57 am (UTC) (current file)
Holy Christ in a kayak, that is the cutest mother fucking thing I have ever seen.

I must make one.

Damn.

I must learn how to crochet, than I must make one.


... or pay some one to do it for me ...
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 25th, 2009 08:51 am (UTC) (current file)
Hee! Yeah, I don't know how either, I just have a really cool friend who likes to crochet. I think she's working on either Coraline or another project now - can't wait to see what they look like in the end!

P.S. Yay, Alex icon!

Chimichanga!!!

Insanely cool Dollpool!
congrats on the score foresthouse - I'm a hopeless Deadpool addict and Sleestakoholic myself so I totally understand the slippery slope of the ever-expanding collection :)
I'm new to lj but I'll get my page set up evertually...
I'd love to see pics of other Deadpool statue/figurine/doll items you've picked up (the custom items are the real treasure pieces imo)
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: March 12th, 2009 12:10 am (UTC) (current file)

Re: Chimichanga!!!

He really is great, isn't he? My friend is so cool!

Yeah, it really is a dangerously slippery slope. :) I guess it's actually a good thing he's not as over-merchandised as Wolverine or others, because if he was I'd be even more broke. Hah. The one expensive collectible I'd love to have but don't want to spend the money on is the full-body Bowen Deadpool. That thing is awesome. Maybe someday.

Welcome to LJ-land! :)

I haven't yet taken pictures of my tiny Battle Dice Deadpool or Heroclix Deadpool, but I do have a pic of the sketch Georges Jeanty did for me at Comic Con, and a couple of posters I got from Reilly Brown, who also signed my C&DP TPB #7, along with Louise Simonson. Joe Kelly signed my DP #1 from 1997. :) Fun!

Since you're new to LJ I hope you don't mind if I shamelessly plug my Deadpool journal, ask_deadpool while I'm here. :)
thedragonslayr From: thedragonslayr Date: March 28th, 2009 02:43 am (UTC) (current file)
OH GOD. I will totally pay cash for you to make me something like this ;_;

Ohhhh.... seriously.... would do anything for that.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: March 28th, 2009 06:24 am (UTC) (current file)
Well, I didn't make it, my friend did. :)
mneiai From: mneiai Date: March 28th, 2009 03:12 am (UTC) (current file)
This is BEYOND CUTE. I'm totally going to have to try to make one now. Nothing is better than a cuddly DP!
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: March 28th, 2009 06:24 am (UTC) (current file)
He is very cuddly and well crafted!
