A few weeks ago, my boyfriend was eagerly waiting for Mass Effect 2 to come out. He watched a bunch of teaser footage and saw this shirt
on one of the developers and wanted one. Sadly, it was a limited-release shirt only available to people who went to E3. I decided I would stencil one for him. Of course, after I spent a week searching the interwebs for pictures of the N7 logo to make a stencil out of, Bioware comes out with N7 shirts available to the masses for the "low" price of $24.00
I was a little deflated because I thought I was making a one-of-a-kind shirt for him. He encouraged me to do it anyway:

It was my first stenciling project. I used acrylic paints mixed with fabric medium and freezer paper. The hardest part was cutting out all those little wavy bits of the stencil. The little bits didn't adhere completely during the ironing process, causing some bleeding, but the overall effect wasn't too bad. The boyfriend approves so that's all that matters.
