I really did mean to get this up in January, it just... didn't happen. Er. Well, he's here now?

Jig the Goblin, from [livejournal.com profile] jimhines' series of the same name. As a reminder, the pattern for Smudge the Fire-spider can be found here, though he's almost big enough to eat Jig at this scale.


Jig the goblin, as seen from the front. I trimmed his eyes a little extra at the edges to make him look more pathetic. His hair is gray thread I tied on; his fangs and eyes are felt, and the former are more impressive than they have any right to be in these photos, but have since been trimmed down to a more realistic length.


Jig from the side and the rear, just for the whole runway experience.


Creative anachronism Jig! Since [mild spoiler] he technically gets the Awesome Boots before he makes his glasses, and I found the former too frustrating to make and the latter was half the reason I even made this pattern. I guess we could've fit in a photo op after he took off his boots but before he took off his glasses? IDK. [/spoiler] The purple doesn't show too well in either this pic or the next pic, but rest assured that it's a very deep amethyst. Possibly too deep, but there were Complications with the glass stain.


Jig with Smudge! Who is not even remotely to scale. Let's just say that one of them got hit with size-changing magic (or both! Because why not!).

Fold the loincloth in half across the dc 5 length; sew the corners together where they meet.

If you are particularly desirous to make goblin junk, you can probably use Bubby the Bubble Boy's pattern [borderline NSFW] for that; I didn't feel any need to do so, though, so you're on your own for visual reference there.


Extra! How to make Jig's glasses (no pics):
To make Jig's glasses, I used a US quarter, some thick-ish clear plastic from a throw-away container/wrapper, hot glue, and glass stainer.

I started by cutting two circles from the plastic using the quarter to get them the size I wanted.

I then drew out a length of wire, made sure it went from behind Jig's ear to the bridge of his nose, and made a right angle; where the wire would visually overlap with Jig's eye, I bent it around the quarter to match the size of the plastic lenses. I wrapped the join, then wrapped the wire over the top of the quarter again and wrapped the second join. I measured the wire out over the bridge of Jig's nose to his second eye and repeated the quarter-measuring-binding process. I drew the wire out farther so it visually reached the far edge of his head and folded it at a right angle towards his second ear, and cut the wire so it overlapped the other ear.

I hot glued the plastic lenses in place on the inside of the frames (the part that's closest to Jig's face). The wire and the glue helped create a shallow well with the lenses. I dripped the glass stain into the "wells", evened it out to the best of my abilities, and allowed it to dry over night. Viola! Instant amethyst glasses.

I hope that helps anyone who wants to make their own :)
