Sprite Patterns December Day 2: Tiki's Request

Hello! I've still kind of got a cold today, so I feel a little incoherent, but have been preparing for this post and reading 19th century puff piece biographies this afternoon, so my activities are likely not helping matters. Today, however, I decided that I was going to do a request I got in an e-mail last month from longtime friend of the blog Tiki, who runs the aptly titled blog Tiki Stitches.

The request was for sprite patterns the TV versions of Green Hornet and Kato, and since I got out all of my, "haven't really seen the show, but boy, did the movie a few years ago suck or what?" vitriol in the e-mail, which was kindly received, I won't do too much of that here. It was a bad movie, though.

Since I haven't really seen the TV version of The Green Hornet, though, I do not know if these patterns are good representations. I think they came out looking pretty close to the pictures I was getting on Google image search, but also realize that there may be some essential part of the costumes, or maybe something that is integral to tiny cross stitch patterns of Bruce Lee that I totally skipped over because I am not very familiar with the source material.

Before posting these, I also want to say a couple things about the floss colors. Usually, when I'm using dark grays, I don't use 934 because it's green-gray and weird and I don't like it. In this case, however, it's patterns of characters from The Green Hornet, so I stuck with the greenish tint because it fit the theme. With the Green Hornet himself, I also wanted the grays on his coat to have the sort of color look that watching a 60s TV show has, so I used more blueish grays than usual to try and make the pattern look like the character would on the screen. If you want to stitch these and think that is a weird color choice, the patterns are simple enough that you can trade it for a more normal gray pretty easily.

With all of that said, here are today's patterns!

Now that I have these patterns posted, I am going to go read more stuff for my final papers and eat either eggs or soup. My life is crazy. I'll be back tomorrow with something else, though I am not sure what yet!
