Canvas: Burgundy
Colors: 3
Video Game: Journey

During the re-release of Journey on the PS4, I finally got my hands on the game, and it blew me away. No words, no talking, but a super immersive multiplayer game. I knew I had to celebrate it somehow in cross stitch, so I’ve created both a golden robe and a red robe with the end game and start game robe designs respectively.

This year I’ve entered both the mega and mini Sprite Stitch craft swaps! This is a gift for my mega partner Citrusoda, featuring some of her most favorite things! She really wanted something Pokemon OR a quote. Well, how about both? She also mentioned loving Japanese sayings, Gengar specifically, and loving red black and purple. This is what a came up with, featuring the Japanese saying “wake from death and return to life” on a Japanese inspired block print cross stitch.

This year I’ve entered both the mega and mini Sprite Stitch craft swaps! This is a gift for my mega partner lucyinthesky. I chose to theme her gifts on Galaga, which she holds the high score for! I really loved the color of the game when I was little and LOVED to get the red ship. So I decided to greyscale the enemies and make the red ship really pop in contrast.

Bioshock Charge Vigor Cross Stitch by Lord Libidan

Title: Charge Bioshock Vigor
Date Completed: July 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Glow in the dark
Colors: 8
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 playthrough of Bioshock Infinite, I realized that the Vigor posters had certain magic of their own. What’s 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!

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!
It’s loosely based on a shirt design, but with my own flair, and additions, shading, and a few secrets.
