As promised, I come bearing geekiness as gleaned from Mr X Stitch at the Stitch and Craft show…
I am, frankly amazed (and a little appalled) at myself for never having come across Lord Libidan before. His work is amazing – generally centered around video games, and packed full of original, interesting ideas.
The Transformers, sewn onto plastic canvas, actually transform. Oh yes. There’s Jetfire & Optimus Prime (as seen here) who of course become a plane and a truck respectively – and also a couple of tapes; Ratbat & Laserbeak, which will fit into the soon-to-come Soundwave/tapedesk. I love that they are based on the original toys, not the new versions – tres retro chic. And (this is the best bit) all of the patterns are all available from his Etsy Shop. Huzzah!
This manbroiderer may not really be a lord, but I agree with him; he should be.
