Bioshock Charge Vigor Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Charge Bioshock Vigor
Date Completed: July 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Video Game: Bioshock Infinite
During a convention my good friend Mr X Stitch gave me a square of glow-in-the-dark aida by Sew It All, with a challenge to make something special with it. Well, I had a whole host of ideas from fantastic to whimsy, but with a recent play through of Bioshock Infinite I realised that the Vigor posters had a certain magic of their own. Whats the best way to sell near magical powers? With a glowing poster!
I’ve used a combination of simple black and white threads, with a glow in the dark white thread to create an image that not only works in the light, but really pops in low level light.
I’m pretty sure I did a good job Mr X Stitch!

Its always an aim in every gave of harvest moon I play to collect all the animals, and see all the extra ones you can’t keep. Well a little while ago I managed it, and to mark the occasion I decided to make an old fashioned group shot.

Minecraft Cross Stitch

Date Completed: May 2015

Video Game: Minecraft
In all the shows I’ve been to, by far the most requested game is Minecraft, and whilst I’ve had at least a few ideas for a while, I never stitched any. So here’s to change!
Its loosely based on a shirt design, but with my own flair, and additions, shading and a few secrets.

Zelda Dangerous Alone Shadowbox Cross Stitch

Title: Dangerous Alone
Date Completed: April 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Video Game: Zelda
In all my video game stitching career I’ve never stitched anything Zelda related. Whats that all about?
I’ve tried creating a 3D depth image before without success, and realised I needed something a lot smaller scale. I figured, what better than the classic “Dangerous to go alone!’ scene?

Date Completed: March 2015

Following my last tie clips, I’ve seen a lot of colours tie bars in GQ, and mens’s magazines. Well, I wanted in. As a result I’ve designed and printed a two part tie bar that you can change the top of in under 5 seconds, this means you get get 9 coloured tie clips the price of a plain metal one. You can pick them up on my store at Shapeways

Team Rocket Typography Cross Stitch

Title: Team Rocket Typography
Date Completed: March 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Video Game: Pokemon
A return to pokemon! I’ve always loved typography (and have always been useless at it), but recent Portal lemon rant stitches I’ve seen have made me take stock. Maybe I could do something like that? And what better than the motto of Team Rocket from Pokemon Series 1 & 2.
Prepare for trouble!
Make it double!
To protect the world from devastation!
To unite all peoples within our nation!
To denounce the evils of truth and love!
To extend our reach to the starts above!
Jessie! James!
Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!
Surrender now, or prepare to fight!
Mewoth that’s right!
I’d like to thank the fantastic members of SpriteStitch for spell checking it for me. Where would I be without you guys?
