Crochet Saturday: A Princess Bride Poll

If you are a regular reader, you may recall that I created some Princess Bride amis awhile back.  They were but poor, lost circus performers, and one of them might have been armed with a rock.

Fezzik Behind Rock

His way isn’t very sportsmanlike, but it is pretty cute.

Did you kill his father? Tsk, tsk.

To my delight, someone contacted me through Etsy and advised me that he absolutely, positively HAD TO HAVE Inigo, Vizzini, and Fezzik for his cubicle.  Since I happened to have a set all ready to go for Awesome Con, I happily sent them out to him instead.  (When people have to have things, obviously, I have to help!)

A few days later, the same customer asked if I could possibly make him Buttercup, pirate Westley, and Miracle Max, too.  After I finish up with Awesome Con, I will be designing those three on commission.  Hooray!

My question is this:  Can I stop at those three?

What characters would it be inconceivable to leave out?  (These things take long strings of 14-hour days to design and test, so when you say inconceivable, make sure it means what you think it means.  Put another way, don’t just rattle off characters.  Give me only the ESSENTIAL!)



  1. Well, I guess Pirate Wesley is Man in Black, but Farmboy Wesley would make a perfect special edition. In the same spirit, I should think a very, very fancy Princess Buttercup and also maybe a mussed up Fire Swamp special edition, or perhaps Farmgirl Buttercup and for the VERY special edition, a pull string where she could say, "Farmboy. Fetch me that pitcher… ?).

    For this next idea well yes, these are minor characters, but you could have a mini monster series, to include one R.O.U.S., one shrieking eel, and perhaps an albino dwarf.

    I totally totally totally love the Fezzik. Aaaaaah, so cute. Might have to get me one.

    • Look at you with the great ideas! I absolutely love the idea of the mini monster series. The shrieking eels have always been near and dear to my heart.

      Fezzik melts my heart a little. Or a lot.

  2. Are you kidding me? My 13-year old is/was obsessed with Andre the Giant (the kid is weird – lol) and will love it when I show him your Fezzik – your talent continues to amaze me!!
