1  Martin Luther & wife tshirts for costume party *FIRST REAL POST!!* in Costumes: Completed Projects by ..button-up.. on: January 02, 2007 11:01:24 AM
Ok.. For new years our church did a "dress up as someone from history" party and so my superhero husband and I decided to be Martin Luther and his wife (runaway nun Katharina von Bora).  Of course I left the issue of costumes until the very last minute, giving myself only 5 hours to whip something together.  So... I decided upon decorating tshirts instead of full blown costumes.

Here is a pic of us from the front. (Ignore the guy in the pyjamas...)

and from the back...

And closeups:

I used fabric paint and painted it on free hand.  No way I was making a stencil for this.  I was trying to look similar to this....

And the back... I got an old white pillow case, died it with tea, and wrote who I was in permanent marker.  With literally 2 minutes to spare before I jumped in the car to leave, I sewed it on quickly and sloppily by machine.

And Steven... or should I say Martin Luther....

I just cut out felt pieces for the monk necklace and stitched em on by hand.  They kinda look like banana slices I think!!  The 95 theses thing was also just a tea-dyed pillow case and permanent marker.

And the back...

Ok... thats it.  Not my best work, but not too shabby for a last minute, completely free costume!  I like how my shirt turned out.  I think I might just wear it with jeans normally.  Hmmm... Ok.  Cheers.
