I went to see Iron Man. Now I'm completely obsessed Grin I LOVE this movie! For those of you who haven't seen it, you don't know what you're missing! 

So here's something I made to distract me from the fact that I have to wait at least four months to see it again (on DVD).... Cheesy

It's not finished yet, I need to add at least another coat of glow in the dark fabric paint. It's not very bright right now.

See? I couldn't wait to post pics!

I based the shirt on this shirt which is based on this...

I thought, why spend $17 on a shirt I could make myself...? So I went and bought a $5 cotton t-shirt, and white and glow in the dark fabric paints. I cut the reactor design out of shelf liner, which I stuck to the shirt, then I sprayed it with bleach. I didn't get a picture of this one before painting, so here's my mess-up shirt...

(the sticker wasn't big enough and I accidentally bleached around it)
It's more of a really light orange before the white paint.

Close-up of the reactor design...

I can't wait to finish it and wear it!

I also know the love of iron man.  Oh my god, we just saw it again today and it was even cooler the second time.  I was trying to think of ways to make a light-up shirt, but you are so brilliant with the glow in the dark paint!  Awesome job!

Aren't we crafters a thrifty bunch! Or as my DH likes to say, I'm cheap.  Glad to see that I'm in with a good group.  Grin

That looks faboo ... I especially like the fact you used the glow in the dark paint. Too very cool!

I just saw this movie the other night and loved it! I am making my brother one of these for his b-day- thanks for such an awesome idea! And, how brilliant to bleach the shirt first (I never would have thought of that...). And glow-in-the-dark paint...fabulous...

omigosh! My boyfriend would love this shirt! Is it alright if I try and make my own? I don't think I'd paint on, but rather sew on something.

I worked on this movie, and I think they totally should have given THAT out for the crew gift.  That's a great idea!

I just saw this--oops- I am an extra's casting director.  I met the director, John Favreau, who is also an actor and had a cameo as Tony Stark's driver... but I didn't meet the other actors on this one.   Undecided

A baseball hat that said Stark Industries I think. I gave it to my assistant last year at wrap, so I am not 100% on that, but pretty sure. 
And a hoodie sweatshirt that has the Iron Man eyes on the hood, so when you flip it up, they are on top of your head.  It says Iron Man very small on the cuff of the sleeve, otherwise I am not sure that anyone would know.

So I just got home from seeing Iron Man. Every time you could see the reactor through his shirt I thought, "I'm totally going to make a shirt like that." You beat me to it and I love it!  Grin

I really need to steal this pay homage to this simple-yet-clever idea with a shirt of my own, although I'm not sure how an arc reactor'll look sitting on top of an ample bosom. I'll have to buy glow-in-the-dark paint, but I can probably come up with some more uses for the leftover paint.

Am I objectifying men if I say thanks for the eye candy in the original post?
