How cute can a malign Death Knight really be? Apparently, if she's a Gnome Death Knight done up arigurumi style - pretty darn cute. Espyr of Sen'jin-US shared this gift she crafted with love for her boyfriend's pocket tank, Pipps. Apparently the character behind this meanie began her illustrious career as a Warrior but has transformed into something ... biggah (in spirit, at least). "Interestingly, he has continued Pipps' story so she has 'become' a Death Knight (on another server, Steamwheedle Cartel), and outside of WoW, he has written short stories about her younger life, being raised by Dwarves," Espyr says. "I love that he can tell her whole story. It's really interesting, I think, because he really thinks it out."

Amigurumi (yes, we messed it up in the headline) dolls, originally from Japan, feature tightly crocheted, stuffed figures. Espyr added embroidery thread hair, painted black Sculpy armor and a painted felt cape to her custom character creation.

You can find the pattern Espyr used (plus plenty more amigurumi inspiration) at Geek Central Station.
