I am feeling VERY accomplished! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have FINALLY finished my Mass Effect cross stitch pattern! I have been working on this since 2015 when I opened my etsy shop! I have always been a gamer girl, and my favorite game series of all time has to be Mass Effect! (Followed closely by Star Wars: KOTOR … not #2!) How legit am I in my love for Mass Effect? I had everyone survive the suicide mission in #2, I have the Special Edition for #3, and I even have a very personal connection to the one and only LEGENDARY El Spiko who complained and gave all us gamers what we want! (Love ya, Stanford!) I actually bought the original Mass Effect on a whim. I don’t even know what got me started, but I loved the customization it offered along with the interesting gameplay in what role you chose. My FemShep was a soul surviving war hero biotic. Of course she fell in love with Kaidan (ummm that mission with Ashley and Kaidan…. ughhhh!) and I have the videos of them falling in love (because of course I do! A space odyssey with love! I’m sold! Until I realized the guy who voiced Kaidan played Jiminy Cricket on Once Upon A Time and my soul died a little bit). Anyway, after many years of designs to get it JUST RIGHT, here you go! I included all of my favorite characters from the Shepherd era. Top 5 designs? Miranda, MORDIN, Samara, Garrus, and EDI. Javik was fun too, but Legion and Wrex were the hardest to get just right.
I will admit that I had a lot of pressure on myself to get this right. I just love this series, and aliens are difficult to design. N7 Day is one I celebrate every November 7th!
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
I still haven’t finished Mass Effect Andromeda. I was disappointed with the characters, but I should probably start over and try again.
