A few years ago I made scarves for the guys in MCR and threw them up on stage...you can read my previous entry.  So this year my sister and I followed them for 6 shows in 8 days and I made them more scarves.  I made each scarf the same color as the guys ray guns from Danger Days.  Needless to say it was the best week of my life, got to meet all the guys several times.

In Grand Rapids, MI I waited outside Vertigo records to get a wristband to meet them for about 5 hours in the rain.  I got to give them my scarves and they loved them, they all put them on right away.  Frank was super interested in how long it took me to make them and was really inspecting them!  Gerard checked out the tags that I made.  I got hand shakes or high fives from all of em.  It was great.


The pics of the guys are from the Grand Rapids newspaper, since they wouldn't allow us to take any during the signing.  My sister and I were also in the paper waiting outside in the rain.
Then the next night in Cleveland, OH after the show Frank was wearing his.  I had him sign the shirt I made and he asked if I made my shirt I replied "yes and I also made the scarf you are wearing."  Frank said " I didn't even look at your face, thanks so much."  And then he hugged me!!!  He said that he woke up with a sore throat that morning and that my scarf was really helping.  He talked to me for a while and asked if he would see me this summer as I had told him this was our last show on the tour.  Wish I could have gotten a pic with him but he said that he had already told a bunch of people no.
I will post pics of the shirt in the screen printing section (I made shirts for each concert)
Thanks for looking

Ok I have to admit I clicked this because I thought "Oh Harry Potter!" but these are still very cool.  I'm not familiar with the band, but your scarves are gorgeous. I'm so glad they liked them!

actually got to meet them more than once on this trip...except Ray only met him once, but I forgive him he did break his foot the first show I was at.  We met Gerard and Mikey 3 times and Frank 4 times.  It was the experience of a lifetime

That is just the most amazing story and the guys are wearing your scarves HOW AMAZING AND AWESOME! I'm torn between jealous and so happy for you I'm about to burst! I think I'll be both.

I think those scarves look super amazing.
