I've been AKA the Ellie Monster for years now, and it struck me in a moment of sheer ridiculousness that I needed to make this.  I was going to keep working on it, but a few of my friends convinced me it was 'done'... whatcha think?




I need to get a better picture of the kitties on the front...

Holy cats!  That's effin awesome!  It looks done, but I bet it would be VERY tempting to just go cwazy.  Some things worth doing are worth overdoing, after all.

i love how the shirt has a western and monster appeal. Did you do the embroidery by hand?  Shocked It's so amazing! Is that you rising from a grave? Haha. This is so creative.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Wow! It must have taken you FOREVER to stitch that one up. I am VERY impressed. Cheesy I don't know if I would ever have the guts to wear it (I'm a mega klutz and I would probably ruin it in a night Undecided).

Fantastical!

 Cheesy
Thanks for the compliments folks!

So, yes, I did it all by hand, and no, I don't even want to think about how long it took.  I worked on it a few nights a week for about 2 months. 

The zombie girl was modified from a design I did for a band a couple years ago, so if you borrow it, know you're sporting something from a band that you don't know... hehehe. 

I've worn it a few times already, it's quite the attention getter.  Waiting to get a few pics from a friend of me wearing it last week... I'll post 'em when I get them... they're pretty ridiculous.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.
