This is my very first project posted - so please be gentle with me.
My daughter is big into Green Day right now - so I wanted to make her a GD themed gifty for Valentine's Day. I didn't want to make anything too literal - like a shirt that says "Green Day" or something like that & she always wears skirts and such anyway...so... I found this cool kinda mod~esque/ cheerleader dress at Goodwill and stenciled the American Idiot heart grenade on the front and then made the back like a team jersey with the name "Whatsername" (from the album) and used her birth year as her "number".
That is the front.

I wanted to keep the paint looking "motted" because that is how it looks in all of the artwork for the album and I wanted to make it look "authentic".
I would _really_ appreciate anyfeedback from some Green Day girlies before Valentine's Day - because I do not want to give it to her and have her not like it.
That would just embarass both of us. Is the theme / execution cool?Should she get it - or should it go back to Goodwill?
Thanks in advance!
