Geek & Gaming Cross Stitchery 5 – Bioshock Infinite

Filed under: Stitching — Tags: , , , , , , — Yukino @ 3:11 PM

Five minutes into Bioshock Infinite and I knew I had to make these. Five minutes in and I was conflicted – I wanted to play the game but the fact that there were cross stitch samplers decorating the iconic lighthouse had me thinking about my needles and thread.

So I kept my hands on the controller until I finished the game for the first time. But once that credit roll ended, I reached for my camera, restarted the game and snapped pictures for me to work with. My needlepoint kit was calling me and I just had to get started.

There are a total of four cross stitch samplers hanging in the lighthouse, the first one over a wash basin directly at the entrance to the tower. This one had a slightly different pattern to it only in the fact that the rose border had more of a gap between corners and no filler bits like the remaining three. I made the pattern for this one first and stitched it before working on the others.

Status: 2 playthroughs complete (once on Normal, second Easy), currently attempting 1999 Mode

Seriously, there are going to be spoilers in this post. Do not read this if you haven’t finished the game!!

I love Ken Levine.

As an aspiring writer, I wish that I had the chance to shadow him during his creative process if only for a couple of weeks, because both games I have played of his have kept me on the edge of my seat and putting the final pieces together for days afterwards. His plot twists, his characters, his stunning locales….. If he taught a master class, I’d sell my kidneys to attend. But he does not, so I instead shall fangirl out about Bioshock Infinite in the space provided below.  (more…)
