Crocheted Night Crawler from X-Men

I try not to make copy written characters too often because I’m afraid of cease and desists, so I was pretty excited to make one as a custom order. He’s pretty small, only 2-3″ tall.

I’m making Spider-Man tonight live on Twitch tonight (12/5/17) for another custom order if anyone wants to join!

And if there is enough desire for a crochet pattern, I’ll write one up.
