...well I lagged behind, so you got ahead.

This is my Bright Eyes shirt. I originally did the stencil in black but since the shirt is such a dark blue you couldn't see it at all. so instead of throwing a bipolar emo fit I sat down for about 2 hours patiently painting over it in silver glitter paint. End result, which I am completely in love with:




(the shirt is tied in the back in this photo, that's why it looks so short)


(no, I don't know why I'm holding the camera so weird.)

sexy glitter close-up action


the pictures don't do it justice.

stencil is made by me from a shirt on the saddle creek site. sorry conor, I love you (not in a fangirly way.. *shifty eyes*), but I just don't feel like paying more in s&h than the actual shirt costs.
I haven't posted on craftster in a while. I've been in a bit of a rut lately and have not been up to crafting, just lurking on craftster and thinking 'I'll do it later". I promise to be more active.. (not that anyone cares).
in exchange for the photo-y indie rock goodness I bring, I make a humble request: can anyone find the stencil of Courtney Love that was in stencilry for me? I've looked high and low and don't know why I can't find it. pretty please.
comments, criticisms, whiny emo music apreesh/hatred welcome. =]

That's adorable. I also love how you have a watermelon for a head.
I would love having a fruit as a face. But i think i might eat myself. haha.
I looooove Bright Eyes. And that shirt is REALLY well done.
Kudosss.

haha thank youuu!
I don't think I would be able to have a tasty head and live for long. get the munchies one night and it would be too tempting :p. it's like that episode of the simpsons where the devil gave homer a donut head and he couldn't stop eating himself..
hmm.. the phrase 'eating yourself' sounds wronger in type than it did in my head.
again, thanks =)

Did you do anything to make sure you set the paint??
Would you just iron it like all other paints?

well it's tulip fabric glitter paint so I'm pretty sure that it behaves like normal fabric paint. I haven't heat set it yet (lazy :p ) but I'm going to.

I'm waking up again and see that war on screen again
And it makes me want to go and hide
This world is full of misery, the anger is too big to see
That's why I had to dream this dream
