Stitchmond from the forums stitched these marvellous Mario powerups.

He says, “I did the Super Mario World suits and powerups in backstitch style, like blackwork, except using the normal color palette instead of all black.”
I like that each colour has its own blackwork pattern, and it gives a very interesting effect to the sprites!

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

I have a Thwomp in my bedroom, it is a plush and scarily accurate looking. However, being plush prevents it from being as accurate as this concrete masterpiece:

The maker wrote a how-to guide so everyone can have a Thwomp (if they want one, that is. And why wouldn’t you?) I have to say, I never thought of using concrete for a craft project!
