N7 Cross Stitch

Title: N7
Date Completed: September 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Video Game: Mass Effect
This image has actually been a long time coming. After playing Mass Effect 2 I had this idea, but never saw it through. Recently however I’ve been on a kick for limited colours in patterns, and this just fitted perfectly.
The off centre vertical line is meant to be reminiscent of the iconic armour.

Mirrors Edge Tattoo Cross Stitch

This stitch actually started very differently. I often stitch sailor style tattoos based on games series, like pokemon, assassins creed and portal, and this started as one too. On my researching I came across the mirrors edge tattoo, and I was too captivated to do anything else.

Mass Effect Poster Cross Stitch

Date Completed: August 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Video Game: Mass Effect
I’ve really been craving a good game like Mass Effect recently, and with a few sneak peaks coming from E3, what better excuse than to make a stitch devoted to it? I really tried to capture the loneliness you get when finally fighting the reapers at the end of the third game, just before your buddies show up to kick ass.
I also submitted this as an entry in the Sprite Stitch shadow challenge.

I don’t mind saying that these had more than a few issues. I wanted to make a pair of cufflinks that reflected my cross stitch routes, whilst still being professional as possible. I made them in polished nickel steel and also a pair in black nylon plastic.

Shadow Of Colossus Shadow Cross Stitch

Video Game: Shadow Of Colossus
One of my all time favourite Sprite Stitch challenges was the shadow challenge. In particular, my friend PixelStitches did an awesome Shadow of Colossus piece. I’d been thinking about doing something similar for a while, so when I got an oddly shaped frame, I used the excuse.

Open Hole Tie Clips

In my most recent order at shapeways I needed to print off a new base for my fifth element key. I used the excuse to make a couple of tie clips. Both of them were based on the idea of seeing the tie through the clip, whilst still being a feature themselves.

Fifth Element Key

Date Completed: July 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Movie: Fifth Element
Not only have I adored the Fifth Element as a film (100% the best film EVER), but I’ve always wanted to show it by making a prop from the film. What better than the fifth element key?
3D printed and spray painted. Its made to be as accurate as possible to the film.
