The Hedgie in the Pumpkin

My pumpkin won the "overall" prize at my friend's pumpkin carving party - woot!

Update: One more photo of the pumpkin in my dark kitchen:

The Pumpkin and the Hedgie

Time to pose with the pumpkin Niko-dearie!
Niko: "but I don't wanna!" *runs away from pumpkin*

Oh common, just sit on top of the pumpkin long enough for me to take a photo, and look this way.
Niko: "no" *slides off the side of the pumpkin*

Please Niko?
Niko: *slides off the other side*

Niko: "umm..." *slides off*

Fine, don't pose with the pumpkin for me.
Niko: "hehe, I win!"

Assistant Niko

Is ready to answer any of your emails.

First things first, gotta type my name...
Aaaaand reach - okay 'N' is easy enough, but how do I reach the "i" "k" and "o"?
Ahhhh, climb on top of the keyboard, much better :)

Prepping for Halloween

I've been getting my own costume together for Halloween (which rocks btw), so of course I have to help Niko out with his too! To test out a costume idea, I made it out of paper first:

And then to put it on the hedgehog. The spiky hedgehog. The spiky balled up hedgehog. Yeah, that took a bit of engineering to figure out how to actually get the costume on him, and will need some tweaks to make it stay on... but OMG SO CUTE!

I love Niko :)

Spiky Birthday

I recently had my birthday, and Niko's birthday is coming up. So obviously, this was the year of the "spiky birthday" complete with hedgehog shaped cupcakes:

Also: my coworker's daughter made this awesome party hat for Niko. Awesome.

Niko: I can't believe you're subjecting me to this...

Zombie Niko

(as the townfolk look on in fear)
Watch out, what's that over there...

It... it's licking the buildings...

OMG it's Zombie Niko, everyone run!!!
(and so it was, the Last Night on Earth)
