I made these by tracing girls out of the 50's "foto funnies" of men's magazines like "Wink" and "Titter" onto shrinky-dink sheets.  I left off their gorgeous gams and drew tails instead, then painted them with water-based acrylic.  I did an extra coat of navy paint on the back (b/c the side you paint on always looks blobby) and, after cooking, sealed 'em with Mod Podge.   I think they're cute, but would you wear these?

Sorry the pics are so blurry- I have no camera and had to use a scanner.
