To finish off our crazy Halloween amigurumi spree, we present to you a Vampire Monkey Amigurumi!
Isn’t he so dashing? Looking so sharp with a tux instead of the usual heart chest piece, sparkly black buttons, and a nice little bow tie too. So fashion forward! He even holds a romantic red rose in his paw, handcrafted by my sister polarbear of course. This little vampire monkey amigurumi is sure to charm his way into all the lady’s hearts! Don’t get too excited though ladies…rumor has it he’s dating the little Witch Monkey Amigurumi. Sigh, she’s a lucky monkey, I know…
This vampire monkey amigurumi was by far the fanciest monkey we’ve made so far. The cape was actually handsewn together by my mom (because we all know how horrible I am at sewing). It was such a nice coincidence that we had the perfect materials lying around too, like velvet and satin, to make the perfect cape. The hat is exactly the same as the St Patrick’s Day monkey amigurumi and Fourth of July monkey amigurumi.
Another part of this vampire monkey amigurumi that took a lot of work was the backdrop. Polarbear spent days painting and drawing the background. She even cut up some of the same black chiffon material used for the Witch monkey amigurumi’s cape to make into curtains. Our idea was to make the vampire monkey amiguurmi look like he was in a mansion. For me at least, when I think vampire I think mansion…and of course a coffin!
Polarbear also spent a lot of time handcrafting all the roses on the coffin and on the floor. She even used glitter glue to outline some nice gold lines on the coffin. Very decadent-looking, just how I had envisioned it ahh. The coffin was actually made out of styrofoam from an old egg carton. It was painted black and then nicely decorated. And for you nitpickers out there, yes we are aware the coffin is a little bit small. He sleeps sideways…because he likes to!
I just had to include this picture because he looks like he’s using his hand to flaunt his luxurious cape haha!
Of course, no vampire is complete without some bloody fangs! The fangs were cut out from white felt, then painted very meticulously with red nail polish.
That wraps up our monkeys of the month for October! I hope you’ve all enjoyed our Halloween monkey amigurumis as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them. We went a little crazy because it’s polarbear’s favorite time of the year. She’s been dying to get dark and spooky with our cute amigurumis since forever! I just enjoyed living vicariously through the monkey amigurumis because I want to dress up for Halloween but can’t…sniff sniff.
Nevertheless, our Vampire Monkey Amigurumi wishes everyone a Happy Halloween!!
