Apparently, these guys are called Fan Fiends. I never knew that before today - I guess my day wasn't wasted. I followed the colors Stitch v1.2 recommended, but, as you can see, they're not correct. I've still yet to find a program that can match colors accurately. Until I do, I'll have to rely on my non-colorblind old lady.

I had originally planned on making "Old Man" Christmas presents for some friends, with each one getting a different saying. The Dodongo one took a lot longer than I expected, though, so I ended up making these instead. Those are some cheeeeeap frames.
A day after johloh at Sprite Stitch made a post about them on his site, I was scrolling through Kotaku and wtf, mate? Other sites also picked it up, including Boing Boing and Wonderland.

Here's the first cross stitch I finished. It's been rolled up for about a month (hence the wrinkles) since I haven't been able to find a frame cheap enough for my liking. It's pretty easy to see a mistake I made in this photo but I never noticed it on the cloth until my fyance pointed it out. Just haven't gotten around to fixing it.
