My geek cred.  Let me show you it.

I started with three unremarkable thrift store t-shirts:


I made myself a Batman shirt... but not just any Batman shirt. Behold! With much pinning and sewing (by machine and by hand) and measuring and cutting and vast, sad amounts of seam ripping and re-pinning/measuring/cutting/sewing, detail was added. Lots of detail. Like, for example, a utility belt with four functional pockets:


Or a hood with bat ears, which I stuffed so they'd stand up:


Or even black forearms with requisite trio of arm spikes.


Oh yes.


Da na na na na na na na BATMAN!!

I didn't want to overload this post with too many pictures, though I've got lots more (some process, some action shots) in this blog post.  I'm on the hunt for a red hoodie I can turn into a Flash hoodie next (for jogging, of course), and maybe some bits to make myself into Wonder Woman. w00t!

Thank you so much, everyone!  You're totally making my day.  In fact, I was staring at this post a minute ago wondering why I was looking at it again when I realized I had stumbled onto it via StumbleUpon- so thanks, whoever's kicking up zee Batman shirt's StumbleUpon ratings!

If you stumble on your self unexpectedly, does that mean you've stubbed your internet toe(s)?

Haha! I think it does!

This is just about the coolest thing I've seen lately. I am humbled before your magnificent display of geekiness. Humbled.
