Hello there everyone! Wow, we had such a great weekend at the Richmond Barracks May Fair… So many Beasties headed off to new homes, and it was incredibly nice to get out and meet people again. If you were there and you’re checking out the BeastieBlog for the first time, welcome! Be sure to say hello in the comments.
And now, on with the Beastifications! Last time around, we met this pretty monster lady…
… But of course, it takes two to make an engagement work! Let’s meet the lucky fella, shall we?
For this little monster guy, I took inspiration from the same engagement photo that I used as reference for his bride-to-be, and tried to capture the details of his outfit as closely as possible. So that started with his grey knitted beanie, and then I got to work on copying his outdoor jacket exactly.
Well, almost exactly. Wool, sheep and monster puns are not optional in the world of Beastie.
He also has a cosy handknitted scarf to complete his toasty outdoors ensemble.
And what about accessories? This Beastie’s human counterpart is a keen photographer, so a Kniton camera seemed like something he’d find useful.
It’s been a while since I last made one of these, so I was quite impressed that I was able to find the templates and that they still worked!
As before, this Beastie-sized camera has a removable strap and lens, and details in felt appliqué or embroidery.
I think these two lil’ woolly monsters are ready to set out on their life together!
But wait a sec… Who’s this?
Mini-Tony mimics his full-size counterpart in every detail – I was lucky enough to find a video of Bigger Tony running around in the park, which made it easier to get his lovely markings just right.
That’s it for this Beastification… But there are more to come! I’ll see you for another one in a couple of weeks. And if you happen to be in and around Greystones next weekend, please drop in and say hi at my upcoming market…
See you soon!

I’ve fainted, it is too much talent for me to behold. I showed John of John Beastie and he wants to buy a North Fleece jacket for his Beastie! He wears a brand similar to that one – ha! I tell you – you need a Beastie accessory shop!
More specifics coming on our trip to Dublin this fall and will send you an e-mail. Can’t wait for my Beastie to have a home coming. 🙂
Awww, thanks Tierney! I do actually love the idea of a Beastie accessory shop… But I think I’d need to clone myself first to make it a reality 😂😂😂 And I’m super-excited to see you all later in the year… Even replying to this comment has me thinking of all the fun Dublin places I can drag you to 😁 Cheers and I’ll look out for your email!
Yes Matt is finalizing the itinerary and I will email you are details!
Love the perfect details, especially the puns.
Thanks, Jackie! I never can resist a pun… The cheesier the better 😂
Oh what a treat to see your magnificient miniature creations again. Thanks too for the punny chuckles. And those green ears show up that grey beanie to perfection.
Awww, thank you Mariss! I’ve always loved puns myself, and I think I’ve passed that enthusiasm on to the Beasties 😂 Thanks for popping in!
Thank you! 😊😊😊
Another pair of fantastic beasties, I still have my little mini beastie. I love the little doggie
Wow, just look at those little beastie accessories, this I think is becoming the real genius of your work 🙂
