Pokemon Japanese Gengar Print Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Japanese Gengar
Date Completed: September 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Red
Colours: 2
Video Game: Pokemon

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 favourite 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.

Galaga Ships Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Galaga Ships
Date Completed: September 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Black
Colours: 5
Video Game: Galaga

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 highscore for! I really loved the colour of the game when I was little, and LOVED to get the red ship. So I decided to grey scale the enemies and make the red ship really pop in contrast.

Fallout Vault Tec Casino Chip 3D Print

Scroll
Title: Vault Tec Casino Chip
Date Completed: August 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Fallout New Vegas
 
After the success of my 3D printed golden Adventure Time sword and 3D printed Adventure Time demon sword last year, when I entered the 2015 Sprite Stitch craft swap I knew I had to create something using 3D printing.
 
This year I’ve entered both the mega and mini Sprite Stitch craft swaps! This is a gift for my mega partner Citrusoda, who loves Fallout New Vegas and D&D style board games. I figured, there had to be some way to combine the both. I used a simplified 3D printing style, similar to my 3D printed tie bars to create a topical game counter made out to be a vault tec casino chip. I was even lucky enough to be one of the first in the UK to use this new style multi-colour 3D printing!
 
If you want one of these yourself, you can buy one at my Shapeways store.

Bioshock Charge Vigor Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Charge Bioshock Vigor
Date Completed: July 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Glow in the dark
Colours: 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 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!

Minecraft Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Minecraft
Date Completed: May 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Canvas: Black
Colours: 31
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

Scroll
Title: Dangerous Alone
Date Completed: April 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 11
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?

Team Rocket Typography Cross Stitch

Scroll
Title: Team Rocket Typography
Date Completed: March 2015
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 18
Canvas: Black
Colours: 2
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?
