I have a terrible addiction, I can't even lie.
I could pay someone's salary at Camel.... but that's a story for another time.
This is my goodwill addiction. They have giant t-shirts.... for a buck fifty.... they're basically begging to be cut up and colored on and tied up and destroyed by the evil likes of bored craftsters >:333

I have at least a dozen giant men's goodwill shirts laying around my apartment. This is my current "to-do list":

(i'm especially excited to do something with the poker playing popeye one. look at him! he's so hood!)

 I'm slowly but surely working my way through the pile. Pretty much whenever I get too lazy to wash clothes I make something.


This was a standard white men's tee. I saw some dude with the most kickass shirt, it was just a big skull but for some reason I didn't ask him where he got it from... so I had to rip it off, of course. some walmart spraypaint, cardboard, scissors, and like 30 minutes later....




What crappy stencil job, but I don't mind it. It looks intentional since I frayed all the edges and did some blowouts on random parts of the shirt.  Grin like a boss!

I have a couple other recons I've done in the past few days, but I haven't taken pictures yet. I'll do all that tomorrow and post some more. It'll be like... the evolution of mivzi's t-shirt reconning skills! hell yeah!

The original skull shirt is probably this one from Threadless: http://www.threadless.com/product/1090/Bone_Idol. It certainly is a cool shirt, but I eat yours, too! The detail on the back is nice. Smiley

Aha, I eat that. Anything with skulls is a plus with me. And the back is done really nicely too! But I know what you mean. I saved so many tshirts I ended up one day just making a giant quilt for my bed with them all to get them out of the way. I had no room for anything else..

I eat your pile of shirts... I have a similar bin taking over my dining room, mostly for reconning for my lil' girlie. You've got some seriously RAAR grr ugggh shirts there, though - I wish there were somewhere here to find great shirts for $1.50! AND, I eat the skull shirt you made. Better than the linked one.

At first when I saw the front I thought "RAAR grr ugggh shirt". Then I saw the back.
EPIC! I absolutely eat it!! I can't even imagine how you did it!
