Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore !

Albus Dumbledore !

Albus Dumbledore !

 

I am not a geek, or a nerd but a simple admirer of the character of Dumbledore 🙂 I so love him !

I read the Harry Potter series as part of a dare from my daughter about 7 years ago !  The only teen fiction I read and grew to love it. I have watched the entire movie series too including the last one the Deathly Hallows on the day of release !!!! All this was a long ago.  I have now grown (!) but I do love some of the Harry Potter characters 🙂 You could perhaps call me an ex-fan 🙂

So, while my new found amigurumi obsession lasts, I thought I will try crocheting a few of these characters  in an attempt to improve my crocheting skills. And who better to start with than Albus Percival Dumbledore …the wise headmaster wizard of Hogwarts !!!

This is one project I put my mind and heart into it 🙂 I tried to mimic as much detail as I could from the pictures, including the eyes ! I am proud the way this has turned out.

 Watch this space is all I can say 🙂

PS: as always, I realise now, I have missed something very important ! I wanted to add it, but just got carried away by his hair and eyes…and gave this a miss !! Do you notice what it is that is missing ??

    • Thank you so much ! yeah, the beard took a lot of grooming 🙂
      I am not sure if you can see it clearly in the picture, but I tried something new here, and I want your opinion on this. I tried sculpting the nose and it did work splendid. I must try this for the ear and mouth to see if it works. Let me see if I can take pictures next time I work another piece, to show you what it is. Hope you had a great Christmas. Its so lovely to see you here always 🙂 Its like the plant getting watered everyday 😉

    • Oh yes, I WAS under the HP spell ! Now I am an ex-fan you could say. Your comment made me re-think, what I am (!) and I have updated the post since 🙂

      At no point I ‘lived’ it though unlike my daughter and her friends who breathed and lived HP at one point of time 🙂 That is what I meant by, I was not a geek, nerd, or a diehard fan.

      Thanks to you, I re-evaluated my fan status 🙂
