1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / There is no Dana, only Zuul Cross Stitch on: February 21, 2010 07:06:42 PM
Oh, how do I love Ghostbusters? Let me count the ways.



I was just going to have the words, but I was watching Zombieland as I was finishing it up and thought to myself, "This really needs a proton pack border." Four hours of staring at a prop image and several stills of the movie, et voila!



The rainbow-looking thing is some scrap threads bundled together to try and emulate a ribbon connector on the prop proton pack. The proton stream is 6 strands of ecru couched by 1 strand of some random pink I had floating around. Looking at stills of the film, the proton streams are bright white in the middle, shading to red along the edges, and I figured this would be the cross stitch version of that. I had a lot of debate about how much detail to go into, but I like the simpler styles, and I felt a bit more down-home country simplicity complimented the font and the size of the piece rather than going whole hog nerdtastic photorealistic.
