1st Generation Pokemon Cross-Stitched Family Portrait

August 21, 2012


Note: Worthwhile time-lapse video after the jump.

This is a giant cross-stitch lovingly created by Linda (aka Esponsas) featuring the entire first generation of Pokemon. Man, so many familiar faces in the bunch. Like, uh, Dweezle, and...Tam-Tam? You got me, I'm more of a Yu-Gi-Oh guy, okay?! Linda said the materials she used cost around $80 and it took her around 8-months to complete. WOW. I haven't done anything in the last eight months except still think it was April. Well, that's not entirely true, I did finish ONE thing. "That's a box of cereal." Not just any box of cereal -- Grape Nuts, brobro. I'm pretty proud of myself.

Hit the jump for a shot of Linda holding the thing for scale, and a time-lapse video.


Thanks to BreakEmIfYouGotEm, who sounds like a terrible person to drink with.

    Don't suppose there's a pattern kicking around anywhere for some keen people to copy? :)

  • Wow, that's so amazing! I wish I had the patience for something like that :o

    Well now that I've seen the vid. I must say whether it was her, child labourers, or monkeys they can still stich better than I can even draw, and I like how the cross-stitching makes it look all pixelated like the original game.

    It's fake...you never see her actually doing the work. probably created by a room full of 3rd world kids getting paid $1.00 a day. Eponases owns a sweat shop. You heard it here first on Geekologie.

  • Monkeys actually. I keep twenty of them in a cupboard under the stairs and they've been cross-stitching 20 hours a day for the last 3 weeks. Oh and it's Eponases!

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    well there you go. monkeys are definitely cheaper than kids. and you can use them to create a novel in their spare time.

    sorry for the misspell. you need to take that up with the dyslexic GW

    cool cross-stitch though. you better hurry up and get started on the other 499

  • It's eponases! :P

    she should go get fitted for a bra. the one she has is clearly too small.

  • GirlFromSpace

    As a girly, I've never been fitted for a bra. Granted, these size-C puppies will fit in just about any generic 34-C I find...but still. Point being, only girls I know of that get fitted for bras wouldn't be hanging out in this corner of the interwebs. ^_^

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    let's see....where did I put that generic response....oh..there it is.

    pics or gtfo.....please

  • cyncity

    And her bra is important why?

    Not a big Pokemon person (too old by about 10 years), but that is awesome craftsmanship and dedication. The video is great.

  • JimmyThr

    When she started making it there was only 150 pokemon
