Here are a bunch of recons of nerdy tees I have done over the past few months... lots of pics!

First up, Boba Fett tee! I took inspiration from this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294595.0  and picked it out from the boy's department at Wal-Mart.  I made it in 2 days, just in time for the mc chris show!



Next is a Zelda tee I found at a comic book store.  This is a very simple recon; it's an XL shirt that I changed into a scoopy v-neck and took in the sides so it fit better.  I kept the length so it is nice and looonnnng:


(The banner says "Hero of Hyrule")

This one is the first tee recon I ever did, and I winged it, so it is VERY sloppy... it is taken in on one side and the hood is crooked and the neckline is unfinished.  Yuck.  But, I just love L and Death Note so I wear this around the house when it's cold XD; For the sleeves and hood I got a large flannel shirt that was on sale at Old Navy.  I learned a lot from this though!



And lastly is the shirt I finished just now, a Metal Gear Solid 4 shirt from Hot Topic that I turned into this awesome tank top! I am sooooo proud of this one, that's why there are so many pictures! I took some black knit fabric I had lying around and made side panels, a top band, and straps for it.  It is a little bit fitted around the bust.  Initially it was very long and I thought about making it a dress, but I like the tank top better (and I will get more wear out of it this way; I don't wear dresses much!).  The pics:

The front:


The front again--you can see the side panel better:


The back--it's the Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots logo (sorry about the bra straps ><):


It helps that MGS4 is the best game evar xD;;

Anyway, thanks for looking! =)

Yay, geeky recons!  I always feel like such a dork because my re-con bag is filled with Transformers, Call of Duty, Zelda, and anime convention t-shirts, but this gives me hope!  I really love the Metal Gear tank.  I wish my Hot Topic carried those shirts.  Cry

I have a ton of my son's old shirts that I just couldn't get rid of cause I liked them so much. We have enough t-shirt blankets so I was wanting something different. Thanks so much for sharing. This will be a perfect new project for us. Cheesy
