Creepy-Yet-Cute Amigurumi Bunnies
January 29th, 2009
It’s official: amigurumi can make anything cute, from vomiting zombies to, well, just about everything in Moon Yen’s “Moon Buns” crochet series. The Moon Buns are all bunnies, sure, but not just any bunnies. These little guys have the soft bodies and long ears… as well as pins stuck in their faces, fangs, and occasionally, tentacles.
All sorts of critters and characters are represented in the series, from Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger and Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head (above) to classics like the shark from Jaws, the creepy twins from The Shining, and a chupacabra. They’re so adorable you just want to schoop them up and hug them! Except they might stab, bite, claw, or otherwise maim you. Ogle with caution, and keep a light on.
