The Minionguard takes London by storm! -part 4-

I already posted pictures about my crochet Minion-version of the Buckingham Palace guard a while ago.

My mom and I were on a 5 day trip to London. She doesn’t like to be on pictures, so the “Minionguard” was a stand-in for us both :) I made a photobook for her.

Here are some of the pictures I took at the various sights in London on our fourth day (The other days are on/will be on soon)

Today, a proud little guard showed us what his workmates can do. We all visited the “Changing the Guard” at Buckingham Palace. Very impressive!

After the ceremony, we visited the Queen’s Gallery and the Royal Mews. Beautiful!

After seeing so much royal stuff, the Minionguard suggested to have a rest at Trafalgar Square

Saturday, a bit cloudy, but still nice! This little ducky is called Edwin. He is one of the mascots of the Apex hotels and will from now on stay with us

we took a boat to go from the Tower to Westminster today. The Thames cruise was super fun!

image

the guard explains, that Big Ben is the name of the bell inside, not of the tower itself

Afternoon: Time for culture! We had tickets to the Westend production of the Book of Mormon. It was great. Awesome. HI-LA-RI-OUS!!

After the bustour, the Minionguard showed us one of his favourite places: The Tower of London!

This is how you use a cage:

…even if they are hungry, do not feed the minions! No Banana

this is the dangerous end of a cannon

the proper use of a helmet

the most dangerous guards need a blanket of chainmail!

the minionguard had no extra ticket, so he was a bit of a stowaway on the Heathrow Express

Checking the beautiful view from our balcony at the Apex City of London hotel

image

going on a walk along the Thames made the girls thirsty. The Minionguard advocates the responsible (!) consumption of cider.

do you ever plan on selling your bears??

I sold some to friends of mine, but basically it was the cost of the yarn + a cup of coffee and a donation to Sea Shepherd

:-)


This is what happens when I
-watch to much RuPaul’s Drag Race -just made some other Amigurumi and don’t have the yarn for the next bigger thing -find some rainbow-colored scraps in my yarnbox -spent a lot of time watching dragqueens perform at pride parades on youtube.
I hope you like this “prideshroom”… Anyone in need of 1 Up?? lol
If you want to make your own: -Take the linked pattern, the white part is the same (although I usually add 1 row, but that is personal preference). -start with the purple and join at the end of each round. -Switch to the next color after 2 rounds -the red part on top will be 3 rounds, but thats fine, because of the white spot on top
I thought about making the white spots heart shaped, but in the end just went with the original.
