after getting extremely satisying results on my bright eyes shirt (*cough* http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=110408.0 *cough*), the stencilling fire has been rekindled.
this is the first thing I've ever done as a custom order for someone else. and just to clarify, no, I don't listen to AFI. their oldoldold stuff rocks my socks, but anything after black sails is just.. no. *shudders thinking about miss murder*

front.


closeup. stencilling on ribbed shirts is a bitch.


this is on the back under the collar.


and little birdies on the back bottom hem.


this top was done on impulse a while ago and I'm a bit iffy about it. if any of you lovely ladies (or lovely boys) can help out and tell me your opinion on whether it's wearable or not, I'd appreciate it. I think it's pretty cool, but at the same time.. I dunno.


ahem.. ignore the lacy underwear and sweatpants please...


and last but defiently not least, this is what I've done so far on my nine inch nails shirt. I'm only posting unfinished pics because I'm so excited about this shirt.

a very crappy photo to show placement. see those faint black lines? yeah, that's it.


cutting this was horrible but so, so worth it. OMG LOOK AT THE PIXELS!!!11eleventyone


New pics of the NIN shirt in all its completed glory found on page 2.

that's all. comments make me happy, so comment please! =]

I think the tank top looks just fine and I like it a lot! Is it a quote from something?

thanks, guys!

SoulMeetsBody, it's a quote from the movie Detroit Rock City. It's about 4 rocker stoner teen guys that are desperate to see a Kiss concert. the part that I quoted is when they pick up a disco chick that ditched her greasy boyfriend after he picked a fight with them and lost. she's sitting in their car and Lex is hitting on her.
him: "your clothes may say disco but your eyes say rock and roll".
her: "well your belt buckle may say rock and roll but your breath says pepperoni".
=D
watch the movie, it's the funniest thing ever. it's one of my absolute favourites.

here's Jam(the main character)'s speech when he's at the concert and his crazy conservative mom is protesting Kiss, copy-pasted from IMDb:
Quote
Jam: Hey what's up mom? I'm gonna ask you this nicely first. Can i have my drumsticks back?
Mrs. Bruce: Your drumsticks are the least of your worries young man. You ran out on God! My son just ran out on God! You are in a world of...
Jam: TROUBLE! I've been in trouble for the past 12 hours! HELLO? You know I'm going to be in St. Bernards Boarding School for the next 2 years. I'm gonna be out of your hair until I'm a legal adult! And then all YOU have to do is is light a candle, pray to some stupid little statue for me and all is forgiven and forgotten, right mom? Then you can spend your days in a guilt free pursuit of more constructive activities like telling people how screwed up their lives are. And then you no longer need the patience and understanding required to talk to your own son on some normal plain. And then that way you don't have to think about how tough it was for you when you were growing up and its a good thing too cause if you did, you'd realize what a lousy, goddam shitty-ass parent you are.
Mrs. Bruce: Jeremiah what has gotten into you?
Jam: I JUST LOST MY VIRGINITY IN A CONFESSIONAL BOOTH! LORD HAVE MERCY! Now for the last time, Mom, give me back my fucking drumsticks... please.

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

thaks everyone =]

kay, I officially love the pink n black tank. It looks complicated, how long did it take you? It seems worth it though. meh, good job.

for that one, I just took a pink tank top that I had no intention of wearing in it's current form (TOO pink >.<) and these letter tile things for little kids to learn to write with, they're like little plastic rectangles with the letter cut out of them. I used fabric paint for the letters because the spray paint bled horribly (ribbed shirts = NOT good to spray paint on) so the spray paint was just for the decoratiing spatters and overspray around the tiles. you can see how bad the bleeding was on the 'u' in 'your'. since the letters like p, o, q, etc were just a big hole, I took a little star off an old pair of earrings and put that in the middle when I painted them, and the stars before and after the text were the random decoration things made of something flexible and shiny from ikea (I got a bag filled with those stars in different sizes, feathers, raffia, etc. form the as is section for like 50 cents. I try not to ask questions.) also, spray adhesive is your best friend. it probably took a few hours, casue I'm a perfectionist and every paint spatter has to look just right.

AFI is an awesome band. Great job on the stenciling (for all clothing). DRC is an kick ass movie.

I really likethe end of the movie where Trip says, \"Hey, those are the guys that beat us up...\" (something like that)
