E3 looked epic this year to me. A new assassins creed would do that on its own though. However the stand out winner was No Man’s Sky. My original idea was to do a landscape with the fun colours of the game, but during my searches I found this awesome logo ensemble was too good to pass up on.

After visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris, I had an idea for an archaeological blueprint. Also resting in my mind was my recent sabre handle. Within a week I had researched, designed and stitched this piece. I also intend to extend this idea to larger scale projects.

Following a few cross stitched iPhone covers last year, I found a higher count version. I found a whole load of awesome stuff online that other people had done, but I couldn’t come up with anything myself.
Then, as random luck would have it, my friend BlackMageHeart mentioned dragons. And 3 days later, it was stitched!

I’ve seen a few stitches and art work similar to this in the past, and wanted to do my own. As a result I found a rather boring pattern online and decided to hide pokemon in there.

Pokeball Pokemon Prop – Anime

Scroll
Title: Realistic Pokeball
Date Completed: March 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Game/Show/Manga: Pokemon
 
I’ve seen a few pokeball props, however I’ve never seen one with the inside done too. So I rose to the challenge! Sadly I found out half way through that one other person has, however there were a few things I was unhappy with on her ball, so I contined anyway.
 
Firstly, the ball is made to be EXACTLY the same as the one in the anime, with a perspex globe painted on the inside. It has the following features:
– Sized to 3 inches, and perfectly circular
– Weight of 5oz
– Hidden hinge so does not show on inside or outside
– One piece construction as per the anime (not three parts put together)
– Locking belt on the top half of the ball
– Magnetic so sticks to belts and has easy access
– Full inside design with copper pins, wire, and curved mirrors
– Flat button as per the anime, with coloured ring to show the type of pokemon inside
 
I also made a manga version of the Pokeball at the same time.

Pokeball Pokemon Prop – Manga

Since I’ve been in a prop making mood I planned a poke ball inside and out, however to make sure I had enough materials I ordered extra. Utilising the spare globes, I made a manga style pokeball and finished it before the originally planned one.
 
I also made a anime version of the Pokeball at the same time.

Mr X Stitch Exhibition in Bedford

Over the last few weeks I had been approached by Mr X Stitch to be featured in his first exhibition, in Bedford, UK. He was curating a contemporary needlework show at a pop up shop on the Bedford High Street.

The colourful exhibition in the BedPop shop featured sewn works from Bedford, and around the globe, and had pieces which range from the whimsical to thought-provoking but all display extraordinary skill with a needle and thread… Jamie (Mr X Stitch) has been working for two months gathering the pieces, some he sourced via his stitching website (www.mrxstitch.com), others have been submitted by the Bedford branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild.”

Skyrim Runed Lexicon Cross Stitch Cube

Title: Runed Lexicon Cube
Date Completed: March 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 4
Video Game: Skyrim

Having loved Skyrim, I really wanted to do it justice with a large scale stitch. Whilst I had done a phone cover, it wasn’t as epic as I wanted.
When researching threads I came across Kreinik’s holographic threads. It didn’t take me long to liken the shimmering threads to mystic etching, and so the ruined Lexicon cube popped right into my head.
Wanting to make it a little more interesting, the corner pieces are raised, and so is the middle ring on each side. The holds the centre circle, which can spin.

Working Minecraft Watch

Title: Minecraft Watch
Date Completed: March 2014

Video Game: Minecraft
 
Whilst working on my custom handmade lightsaber I was playing Minecraft, and I just couldn’t get the idea of making a prop for it out of my head. As time went on, this project started forming a bit better, and thanks to reusing some pain from the lightsaber I created this minecraft watch.
 
Its a working replica prop of the minecraft watch which moves one whole spin every day. In order to get it to work I had to slow down a watch (so it only span once every 24 hours), and then replaced the hour hand with a full dial. I covered this dial in a slightly curvier version of the minecraft dial (taken from the ingame resources), and pained over the glass front to replicate the style of the game one.
 
I’m a big fan of watches, and always love seeing them in games, and so I had intended to also make a cross stitch version of the minecraft watch (I even looked at how to make this a working watch), but I FINALLY got around to playing the Last Of Us, and instead created a Last Of Us cross stitch watch.
