Hey! I've been a member forever but this is my first completed projects post! I fell in love with stenciling and I hope you enjoy

First, let's start with a Gorillaz shirt I made over summer break
here's the front

and at the bottom on the back here's this

I'm in marching band, and my band director thought to name our show "The Japanese Show" however, when he wanted to get some band shirts made, the shirt making people refused to print them because it was offensive. Cuz duh. It is OBSCENELY racist and that he believed that to be an appropriate title of a show (which was a nightmare of cultural appropriation but let's not get too distracted here with my rage) was nothing short of disturbing and embarrassing. I love band, but my director has a lot of privilege to let stuff like this happen.

So. Me and my best friend thought it was super hilarious so I made two shirts, one for me and one for her, we wore it every time we performed (secretly under our bibs)
the front

and along the bottom of the back is a quote from our genius director (he was trying to describe the show but he just kept on using the word 'ceremonial')

I hope the shirt isn't seen as offensive in any way, it's supposed to be funny

I'm also in drumline, and one of my guy friends wanted a new shoe bag

And last but not least, my Twilight shirt, I used one of my favorite quotes, it's from Eclipse
"Sleep, my Bella. Dream happy dreams. You are the only one who has ever touched my
heart. It will always be yours. Sleep, my only love."
I also liked that it's not the average Twilight shirt quote, if you didn't read the book you wouldn't even know it's from Twilight (I'm trying to keep my obsession undercover XD ) I found the Twilight font on the internet, I can't remember where but it was super easy to find, and if you want it, it's not that hard to find
close up of the words (hopefully the fade from the sides are noticeable)

and a full shot, the heart at the bottom with the rainbow is from another quote from Eclipse
"I examined it cautiously. On the opposite side of the chain from the wolf, there now hung a
brilliant heart-shaped crystal..."But I thought it was a good representation," he continued. "It's hard and cold." He laughed.
"And it throws rainbows in the sunlight."

and a lil close up of the heart- I used a TON of sparkle glaze but, alas, it hardly shows up

thank you for looking! Happy New Year!
