Egophiliac's Comic of Luna & Celestia

This is an embroidery design of Egophiliac's comic that can be found here.  Sorry for not posing more often, but this took a boatload of time to make and sew.

All designs are made for a 100mm by 100mm hoop, though the bottom middle panel (alfalfa monster) is best sewn on a 4 by 6 3/4" hoop as it is split in the center.  If you have a Brother machine with a 4 by 4" field, there is a 4" by 6 3/4" hoop with multiple mount points that can be used to simplify the hooping process. If you have the 4 by 6 3/4" hoop, then there are a total of 9 hoops required.  start at the bottom right (part 01) to make lining up the panels the easiest. Work in a zigzag pattern (bottom row right to left, then left to right, then right to left for the last panel). Each separate hoop has a colors.txt file that will tell you what order to use the thread colors.  I didn't list them here for brevity's sake.

The total stitch count is 123,183 with slightly over 1800 yards of thread between 23 different thread colors.  Total design time was 44 hours, 22 minutes with sewing time adding an additional 9 hours and 6 minutes.  It cost just over $55 in materials to make, but oh so worth it.
