Easy As Goo Pie by Timmy22222001 Easy As Goo Pie by Timmy22222001
one of the of Goo Balls didn't seem to realize it was actually a key-chain....
Or that it was being photographed by a crab-like junk artist.
But don't worry, you can make one too.
-Your Friend,
The Sign Painter

Having purchased the amazing World of Goo video game I couldn't pass up a chance to making one of these little guys, but what exactly do you use to make your own Goo Ball? As the title says, its easier than you think.

Helpful Words from MOM:
1) Head out to the Dollar Store or any other store known to sell cheap stuff/craft supplies.
2) Buy a pack of googly eyes, they should cost nothing for a big pack (be sure to get one with various sizes of eyes)
3) (Hard Part) Seek out a hacky-sack. Again check Dollar Stores or even a Toy Store and you can various colors like Black (Usual Goo Ball), Green (Wild Goo Balls), White (Albino Goo Balls) and whatever else....
4) Use a simple glue gun (don't add too much) or some strong cement glue to paste the eyes onto the hacky sack. And like like above in the photo you can use two differently sized googly eyes to really give off that perfect Goo personality.
5) Your done! Wait, that fast?

Oh wow, well hey just follow the instructions and rest assure you'll have your very own goo ball to yourself! Might recommend cheap stores because they often carry a surplus of older toys much like the small hacky sacks used to make this guy. Happy hunting and yamako!

This is fantastic! Ever since you gave me that game I've been addicted! Did you make any others?

I think you should always have googly eyes around - never know when they come in handy. My office lamp has soulful eyes now...

... I love lamp.

Only just two sadly, lol. There was this huge idea of having to create more and including the different types of Goo balls from the game but alas the hacky sack material was harder to come by than a I thought. o0o

Nothing wrong with making a little more fun in your day and true enough kid, there's no way you can't love lamp. ^o^

Awww, they're so cute!!

Did you make other types of Goo Balls? I love the Albino ones. =w=

Oh yes indeed, still got them in the room and proudly sitting on a nearby desk, no way you can't not love a gooball.

Would love to keep making them but alas its near impossible to find any sort of hacky sacks from country to city stores alike. And yes I'm a big fan of the Albino Gooballs as well, they were supposed to be the second project but alas haven't found a hacky sack since. Reason being I went and posted this pic and the tutorial, so everyone can have a chance of making their own gooball!

Do you have to use hacky sacks? If you have a sewing machine(or the patience to handsew it), you could make some out of cheap fleece or something. :iconiloveitplz:

I'm defiantly going to make some Gooballs once I get the materials.

Hey whatever you wish Lingra, this if anything is a guideline to show that anybody out there can make a gooball than sit there and wonder if they could ever have one.

By the cheers to sewing skills if you got them, sadly only know how to fix tears in the pantlegs of jeans, lol.

Good for you and please let me know when you them posted, it be a treat to see a homemade Albino Gooball. ^_^

You can say that again, have yet to meet a person who didn't love that after only playing just a few of the levels, here's hoping for World of Goo 2!

Thank you kindly pwned, wanted to really do something cool for that game and what's better than having your own gooball?

One eye looks bigger than the other... was that intentional to create the eye-pop expression?
Reply
:icontimmy22222001:
Timmy22222001 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2009
Yes it certainly was, as most the Goo Balls from the game they all carry that eye-pop look you describe to add to their humor/character.
