Remember the patch contest? Click here to see the awesome creativity of the Monster Hunter Nation, as they designed MHI patches for their home areas. http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/monster-hunter-international-patch-contest/ I’m going to be doing another one of these in the near future.
There have been several people that have asked me about making their own MHI patches for everything from gun clubs to RPGs. I’m all in favor of it. I’m not sensitive about my logo being used for anything noncommercial. All I ask is that you send me photos to stick up on the blog.
That said, I recently found out that somebody I’ve known for a while has started a custom embroidery company. She recently did a small run of some custom MHI patches.
Hopie said: The first group of MHI approved patches that Crooked Stitch Creations made
was for Jeff Macklin and the people of Z.E.R.T. (Zombie Emergency Response
Team) who hail from Eastern TN. They have an annual Zombie Shoot-up every
Halloween and now will totally be geared up tight!
Hopie does good work, she’s awesome, and I recommend her. Here is her contact information.
Crooked Stitch Creations, Custom Embroidery
Hopie Lopez-Boyett, Head Thread Pusher
You can find my fan page on Facebook listed as Crooked
Stitch Creations or go directly to my ETSY
Email any questions to DancingBearUS@gmail.com
I’ll be doing another patch contest so that another fan created patch can go into Monster Hunter Legion. When I do, I will put Hopie’s contact info again if anybody wants to go ahead and get their made.
For the record, Hopie’s husband is a member of Reader Force Alpha and looks suspiciously like David Spade. In fact, when we were in Vegas together, along with Mike Kupari, we were often mistaken for James Gandolfini, David Spade, and Bender the Robot out for a night on the town. (EOD techs are often mistaken for robots, because EOD uses robots in their job, and both are often intoxicated).
