LTTP light and dark worlds pillow

light

dark

I posted a stitched light world last week for World Cross Stitch Day, but here is another incarnation of it, this time with the light and the dark world! lpgeorge123 says, “It took me about 2+ years, but I have finally completed both of the maps from A Link to the Past, and today I was able to turn them into a little pillow. It was my first time really using a sewing machine, which was both fun and terrifying. I also decided to use minimal stuffing as I wanted the maps to be mostly flat, and then curved along the edges near the clouds. Overall it looks great as a decorative pillow. Thanks again Servotron for making these awesome patterns! Now that they’re complete I really don’t know what to make next. ”

Amazing work! (I would be a bit afraid to actually use the pillow…)

This amazing piece was designed and stitched by Lord Libidan.

Title: Lightsaber Blueprint
Date Completed: June 2014
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Film: Star Wars
He says, “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.”

Very awesome, sir, as usual!

AngelAndChangeling, over at DeviantArt, handmade this costume. She says, “I completely crocheted the costume, except for the tights and some non-yarn components necessary for function. I was Zelda from Skyward Sword in her Wing Ceremony outfit.” I love that she even has yarn hair! 

Here is another shot:

Sunday Roundup! -July ’14

August 10th, 2014 - by Starrley

Sunday Roundup!

The challenge for July was “Favourite Class.” Our lovely BMH said, “What’s your favourite class? It doesn’t have to be from D&D or FF, it can be from anything you like. Maybe you like Shining Force Bird Knights, or Wizards from Warcraft II. Or maybe you have a few favourites from different games! So, show me your favourite class and in one sentence tell us all why you love it so.”

We had a very definite winner for this challenge. Pyper won by a landslide!

Skill tree

Pyper said, “I took a slightly different interpretation of class, and stitched what would be a typical skill tree for my characters. Any game I seem to drift into a sniper class, either with magic, tech or skills.”

In second place is samarin with this adorable Moonkin:

samarin said, “This was pretty easy for me to pick what to do. I have played World of Warcraft off and on since 2006, and i have always played as a druid. For those who don’t know anything about WoW, druids can shapeshift into 4 different forms – Bear (for tanking), Cat (for melee DPS, like a rogue), Tree (for healing) and Moonkin (caster DPS, mage type, but beefy). Back when WoW first launched, druids were only valid in 40 man groups as healers, they could not do enough damage or tank to justify switching their role. I didn’t care! I have been a Moonkin from the start, and was even allowed to raid as one back in Vanilla…I currently don’t play WoW, and doubt I will ever go back, but my Moonkin druids will always have a special place in my heart.”

And in third place is Miss Clawful with a ninja:

2014-7-30

Miss Clawful said, ” While ‘Ninja’ is not my favorite job class typically when playing games such as RPGs, that usually goes to knights or warriors, whomever can wield the strongest weapons and best armor, ninja are still cool and are among my favorites when it comes to platformers, Ninja Gaiden for example and since this is a somewhat common class in RPGs, why not, I’m going to stitch me one for ‘ninja class’…Ryu needs to go back to ninja school.”

Awesome entries, as were the rest of them, so check them out! The ongoing challenge for August is a redo of a former challenge: Silhouettes.

Mega Man Mega Buster Gun Replica

August 9th, 2014 - by Starrley

1e9c_mega_man_buster_gun

 

It’s a full-sized replica, with lights and sounds. ThinkGeek says, “Turn it on and you’ll hear a power up sound and watch the power meter fill up. Reach in, grab the handle, and you’re ready for action. Quickly pull the trigger and you’ll hear a single fire sound and the end will flash. Hold in the trigger, though, and you’ll watch the power meter fill and the sound intensify until you release the trigger, firing a charged shot!” 

It could be fun. I have to say, though, that for $79.99 they could include the 3 AA batteries. ;)
