1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Gerard Way and iZombie shirts on: May 01, 2008 12:13:25 PM
I have a friend who is a big fan of My Chemical Romance, specifically Gerard Way, the singer. I've wanted to do something special for her for a while now and I found a picture of him on which someone had drawn a wing. I manipulated it in Gimp until I should use it as a stencil. The legs cut off about mid-thigh and I didn't just want it to end suddenly so I used lyrics from House of Wolves which I thought were appropriate for the picture and my friend. (She really is an angel.)

If I were to do it again I would use opaque white fabric paint instead of white acrylic with fabric medium. It took about 3 layers to get anywhere near the lightness I wanted and it all ended up a bit blotchy.

Everyone in the costume shop was awesome and didn't say anything about the shirt to my friend. She screamed when I gave it to her.





I just finished doing hair and makeup (and costume) for a short student zombie film. All the rest of the crew has at least 3 zombie shirts each and I didn't have one. So, while I was waiting for some of the actors to come for their life casts I made this.
I stole the idea from the internet, many people have done this before. I found a zombie silhouette on google and drafted the iPod. I shrank down a brain picture and cut a bite out of it to replace the apple logo.
The white paint had the same problems as the previous shirt.
