i am gonna keep this short and sweet and to the point Grin


my inspiration - really, who hasn't wanted one of these?!


the finished product!!  Grin Grin Grin

it was pretty easy. i bought my sweats in the children's section so they would fit a little tighter. the stencils were hand-drawn and then copied onto freezer paper and painted on with speedball screenprinting ink. i tried to get it as anatomically correct as possible, but as you can see, the joints don't perfectly match up and i need to add more vertebrae to the shirt.

oh well, still love it!
oh, and i did not make this to be a halloween costume... this is my laying-around-the-house-being-awesome-and-fun outfit Wink

thanks for looking!
please let me know what you think Grin

i googled pictures of bones and then drew them freehand onto butcher paper. there aren't a lot of bone stencils (other than the standard ribcage & hands) out there, and they would have printed to fit an 8.5"x11" piece of paper, which was too small for what i needed Wink
