Day 339 – CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH: You, as vermin

CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!

This is week fourteen! This week is a bit different, we have TWO CHALLENGES. TWO. THAT IS TWICE AS MUCH AWESOMENESS FOR YOU!

This is the first challenge! For this theme, there are four competitors: me (duh), Yermits, Sarah Apple, and a new contender, The Harpy!

The Theme: Self-portrait As Vermin.

This is me! Those are my glasses, that is my green cardigan that will never stay closed (but has pockets and is so comfy I wear it all the time anyways), those are my sassy cowboy boots that I scored at the thrift store for $4 (now holey and only to be worn in dry weather to ensure dry feet). And of course, there is a leetle robot.

Oh, and a coffee. You might remember that I like coffee? I ALSO SPILL IT EVERY DAMN DAY. So there is the spill.

And why a racoon you might ask? Because they have chubby hips and clever hands. And if the bags under my eyes get any bigger, they might start to look like a bandit mask.

To see all the entries go to Craft Corner Death Match!

DAY 334 – Yermits vs Robots; Living in Canada

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week nine! The Theme: LIVING IN CANADA.

Did you know? I totally live in Canada. It’s like living in the United States, except that we have universal health care and we’re polite. ZING. Or like living in Britain, except their national hero is Dactor Who, and ours is David Suzuki.

Oh yeah, AND WE RIDE POLAR BEARS TO WORK. NO REALLY. IT’S TRUE.

Mine is named Horatio.

And no, we don’t all live in igloos. That’s just silly.

Here is Jenny Yermit’s totally Canadian entry:

Canadian to the core. Donuts! Hat! Mitts! Boots and shorts all year!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: TBA

DAY 333 – Yermits vs Robots; Space, the final frontier

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week eight! The Theme: NASA SPACE CHALLENGE.

We were inspired by the Etsy/NASA Space Contest (which sadly isn’t open to Canadians. Booo, waaah, grouse, etc).

It’s probably not typical, but when I think of the history of space exploration, I think of the animals that were actually the first astronauts. And since this was specifically NASA-themed, I couldn’t do my favourite, Laika. So I thought I would do the first monkey, Albert. Like many of the animals that paved the way for human spaceflight, Albert died in flight. So when I think of the awesomeness of space, and the amazing advances NASA makes in science, I also think about the animals that were the first Earth eyes to see outside of out atmosphere.

And then I think about how terrified the animals must have been, and I feel bad. Animals are pretty much always taking one for the team when it comes to humans. We are going to be SO SCREWED when they evolve opposable thumbs and giant brains.

And, because this is Robot a Day and we thrive on factual accuracies in our robots* here is Albert in his space helmet:

*bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Here is Jenny Yermit’s totally win-tastic entry:

Wow. Just…. wow. Seriously, wow. Amazing. Jenny really captured all the details here, the orange suit, the pose with helmet… the flag in the background. So perfect.

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: TBA

DAY 332 – Yermits vs Robots; Robot as a Yermit / Yermit as a Robot

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week seven (really? seven?). The Theme: ROBOT AS YERMIT / YERMIT AS ROBOT.

I present: A ROBOT AS A YERMIT! I wish I’d thought of this 300 bots ago- it would have made this project WAY EASIER:

Okay, I’m just joking. Here’s the real one:

It’s a drunken bear! Though it does kinda look like Teen Wolf Gets a Job at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Here is Jenny Yermit’s robotically awesome entry:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! amazing. How does Jenny do this every week?

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: NASA! SPACE SHUTTLE! YEAH!

Day 329 – Robots vs Yermits: BATTLE READY

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week four. The Theme: BATTLE READY.

I was a little worried when creating this that I might have gone too far. This robot is, after all, wearing the skin of its Yermit enemy into battle.* That’s… well, really taking this battle thing a bit far, yes? Robots. Their primary progamming is to be a jerk.

And, okay, I know. Ewoks as back-up? Ewoks are tiny. Tiny, and adorable. They are little, chirpy teddy bears. Probably, in imperial space, their pelts would be prized as moustache toupees for those with bald upper lips.

But damn! They can kick some stormtrooper butt. Using nothing but logs and vines. And okay. Stormtroopers are a special kind of stupid, let’s face it. But still. Ewoks. The are at the perfect level to hamstring their foes. Um. assuming that their foes are approximately stormtrooper height, of course.

And they’ve got the robot’s back. That’s gotta count for something.

*no Yermits were harmed in the making of this challenge.

Here is Jenny Yermit’sfantastic entry:

It is wearing robot guts. HILARIOUS. I love that we both went for the same concept. Also, clearly, we’re both deeply disturbed.

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: oh wait we haven’t decided yet. TO BE ANNOUNCED!

Day 326 – Yermits vs Robots; Werewolf vs Vampire!

Last week, I met someone who is totally awesome: Jenny, of YERMITS. Since we are basically in the same field (making things dressed as other things), and since trying to explain our work to others leads to confusion (“wait, are they real robots? You…. dress them up?”), we figured it was

TIME.

TO.

WAGE.

CRAFTY.

BATTLE.

I introduce you to:

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week one. The Theme:
SPARKLY VAMPIRES AND SHIRTLESS WEREWOLVES.

Or, as I prefer to refer to the Edward/Jacob phenomenon: Team Necrophilia and Team Beastiality.* Look, I can’t help it. I just prefer that my vampires don’t sparkle. I mean really. ANGEL didn’t have to sparkle. SPIKE sure didn’t sparkle. And Oz was a cute little werewolf with bad fashion sense. Thank goodness he didn’t take his shirt off, I would have died from laughing.

*it’s funny because it is uncomfortably true

Edited to add:

JENNY HAS POSTED HERS TOO! HOORAY! Check out the awesomeness at her blog. Here’s a peek:

Excellent! Please do check out her blog to see more photos.

Also, Jenny has contributed a sweet prize to this week’s YVR; a set of four buttons to one random commenter!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: YOUR FAVOURITE DOCTOR

Day 324 – Praying Mantis Bot

Those of you who follow my twitter might have noticed that I asked for some robot ideas this week.

And then I didn’t use any of them. *

Instead, I was checking out the other Robot-a-Day’s blog, and upon seeing his golden mantis, realized that I am quite remiss in my terrifying insect quota.

And dude, these things are totally terrifying. Remember when Xander almost got sexed up and eaten by an inexplicably giant english-speaking one? That could teach science, even though the whole premise of the episode was sorely lacking in any scientific plausibilty at all? I waited all season for that stupid egg at the end of the episode to hatch.


*ha, sorry! Maybe next week.

I don’t have much to say about this one, except LOOK AT THIS TERRIFYLY GIANORMOUS LOBSTER. Now you never need to sleep again.

Day 321 – Dog Walker Bot

I think we all know the most important part of the dog walking ensemble is the poop bag. And probably more than one.

Day 312 – Stingray Bot



Sometimes, the bots are tricky to photograph. Here’s another view:


and, just for completeness sake, here is the underbelly/mouth:


So, I was cruising around the National Geographic website looking at dinosaurs, when I found myself looking at GIANT FISHES. GIANT FISHES gets capitalized because those things are freaky weird. The giant catfish in particular has ensured that I will never, ever set a toe into water that I can’t see through. I don’t care if it supposedly doesn’t eat people, IT TOTALLY COULD ANYTIME IT DECIDED TO.

Anyway, onto stingrays. Look, this one is so big you could ride it like a magic carpet across the waves. Also I touched a stingray once and it was soft like velvet.
