3D Transforming Optimus Prime Cross Stitch

Optimus 1
Title: 3D Transforming Optimus Prime
Date Completed: August 2010
Design: Lord Libidan/Paper Robots 1999
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 6
Show: Transformers

After fiddling around with plastic canvas, I wanted to do something a little different, and to push boundaries a little. I always loved fiddling with my brothers generation 1 transformer toys and it started from there. Its based on the original toy series, so transforms into a Peterbilt style semi-tractor.
It uses wire (paper clips) to move the joints.
This is my best piece in my mind so far, and have started making a second transformer Jetfire, and have plans for Soundwave and Starscream which can be found on my etsy.

This was an extension of the Harvest Moon magnets from this series. Doctor Who is amazing. I wanted a magnet. Doesn’t take a genius to work out how this ended… 😛

After seeing the awesome got milk campaign in America, I had to put my own spin on it, and I was playing Harvest Moon at the time and that kid drinks milk all the time!
This was later extended to include Doctor Who magnets.

The World Of Tomorrow Cross Stitch

World Of Tomorrow
Title: The World Of Tomorrow
Date Completed: June 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Colours: 7

One of my major interests is retro futurism, and art of the era, and I wanted to make a pattern which sort of holds the enthusiasm that was around at the time. I have made larger patterns, which I think look a lot better and have that real retro art deco poster feel to them, which are on my list of projects, sadly it keeps getting pushed back though 🙁 (Apparently this was my 23rd pattern…)

Space Invader School
Title: Space Invader School
Date Completed: April 2010
Design: Neil Grefory/Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Colours: 8
Video Game: Space Invaders

This is based on a tshirt on threadless called “A Simple Plan” which is one of their best sellers, I changed the sprites to be correct (As I’m not selling it I don’t have to bother with copywrite laws :D) and so the colours pop out. Currently hanging on my wall.
It was also posted up on Mr X Stitch: Link

Date Completed: March 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Black
Colours: 4
Video Game: Fire N Ice

I really loved this game after playing it on an emulator, and some americans will know it as fire n ice, where as us europeans called it soloman’s key 2, on the snes. Seeing as the game was so simple I wanted to reflect that in the design. I hope to make other fire n ice patterns too.

I sort of fell upon this idea by accident, but apparently quite a few people like it, so I can’t complain 😛 I was planning on doing another for different games, and making an etsy item where you can choose your games. I think the next one will be galactican, racer x, and asteroids…

Fallout Nuka Cola Diarama

Nuka Cola Diarama 1

After playing fallout 3, I got a bit obsessed, and so decided to make a nuka cola bottle. Over time I added a quantum, and made up a display case with real glass and LEDs in the base to light up the quantum.
