I was bored.
First of all, making these things that tiny was annoying. Second of all, I had to bake them one at a time. Thirdly, getting them into the GDF bottles was an adventure in itself. Fourthly, getting them back OUT when I screwed up with the suspension gel was even worse.
And then the bubbles happened. But, I like the bubbles. Bubbles add character. And it adds to the stasis-tube feel.
All in all, metroids are ultimate win. <3
There will be two of these for sale in my etsy shop. For now, I don't have the wits about me to make more, and I have no idea if or when I will make more. The two that will be in the etsy shop are the one on the right and the middle one (I'm keeping the left fellow because I consider him a bit of a screw-up because he wouldn't sit straight in the gel, and there are far too many bubbles.
No, this wasn't an original idea. I was asked to do it by someone, and I looked it up on the web first and it had been done before. But I think I'm the only one who's done them in blue gel so far to symbolize the stasis gel.
Anyhoo. METROIDS. OM NOM NOM.Here is the listing where you could get one of the two metroid bottles!
