The circus is here and the town is swathed in bright, vibrant colors. Clowns, jugglers, human cannonballs, magicians, strongmen, trapeze artists, tightrope walkers, acrobats, stilt walkers, unicyclists—you name it, they are there. And the best part is, they are all made of yarn! Isn’t that exciting!
This amazing amigurumi circus is brought to you by AmigurumiPatterns.net and over a hundred amigurumi designers from around the world. Among these talented circus acts are two of my designs—Mimi, the mime artist, and Choppy, the clumsy juggler.
First, let me introduce you to Mimi – the mime artist.Mimi is not just another pretty face. Besides being a hugely popular one panda mime act, she is also an acclaimed animal rights activist. After barely escaping with her life from a notorious fur trader, she joined the circus. Now she uses the stage and her talent to educate the audience on animal welfare and rights.Did you know Mimi is also pursuing her degree in International Animal Welfare, Ethics & Law?
Choppy – the clumsy juggler, on the other hand, is not exactly what you’d call a smart fella.Choppy always wanted to be a swashbuckling pirate and wield cutlasses but because of his clumsiness he never made the cut. So now he’s joined the circus as a juggler. Though he’s not terribly good at it—his clubs mostly land on his head—he is extremely popular because of the comic relief he provides.
Mimi and Choppy are only two of the many lovable acts who make this amigurumi circus the most fun circus you’ve ever seen. And now you get to decide which of these performers get to shine as the most popular circus acts by voting for them. The most popular characters with the highest number of votes will then be selected to be a part of a circus themed amigurumi pattern book*.
So if you think Mimi and Choppy have the star quality, could you please take a moment to vote for them?🙂
