X-Stitch Fanart- Starzinger by missy-tannenbaum X-Stitch Fanart- Starzinger by missy-tannenbaum
This cross stitch project, of a character named Princess Aurora from an anime called Starzinger (or Spaceketeers), is from a pattern that I got at :iconlittlemojo:'s website, which is at this [link] I have never actually seen Starzinger, save for 10 fansubbed minutes of it that I found on Youtube, but this pattern impressed me as being incredibly cool. The anime is from the late 70s, and from this character design, it shows. The pose is very fashion model-ish, the outfit itself looks a bit dated, though in a really cool way, and the colors are more vibrant than the pattern's preview image would have ever lead me to believe, which was a really cool surprise. At any rate, this pattern was really fun to make, and ended up being the biggest project I have made, at over 10 inches tall. I am not sure what to do with it yet, but I hope that it'll end up looking cool, whatever I decide to do.

This project was stitched on 18-count white Aida cloth with DMC thread.

Thank you! I'm glad you like her! She's probably my favorite project I've finished.

Ah, thank you! ^^ I usually don't count my hours, but I work on stuff for a few hours a day and she took two weeks to make. I'm sorry to not have a more precise answer! T_T

Thank you, I'm very glad you like it! She was a lot of fun to make, too, since the variety of colors in small spaces in the pattern stopped it from getting boring to stitch. :)

Nice job! Her pose is very model-ish but not everyone has to be butch! ...reminds me of the girls from Eureka 7. :wave:

Ah, I can see that, now that you mention it! Eureka 7 was on really late, so I never finished watching it, but they'd be fun to cross stitch, too. :trout:

Thanks, I'm glad you like her! She looks uber-girly, though; I think She-Ra could knock her block off. :D I can see the design similarity, though. ^^ It's pretty cool. She reminded me of one of the girls in Josie and the Pussycats, and my mom compared her to Penelope Pitstop.

This is really cool :) i like the detail.
So it's bigger than the bellsprout?

Thank you! I was worried about some of the detail showing up when I scanned it. It's about an inch taller than the Bellsprout, maybe an inch and a half, but since Bellsprout was 11 stitches per inch and this one was 18, it took a lot longer to get done with. ^^;

Thank you! It took over two weeks, longer than I'd normally spend on fan art for a show I've never seen, but older anime looks so cool!

Well, the few minutes I watched on Youtube were cool, but the fansubbing stopped after that point. My mission is to find a legit version of it now! It has to be miles better than Space Thunder Kids. :D
