So, my sister is a marathon runner as well as a a self-dubbed "sarcathalete". She has a blog in which she writes about the trials and tribulations of being a lazy, sarcastic person training to run marathons. It is safe to say that she can be rather vulgar in her humor, and she also happens to be obsessed with unicorns (a story to which I will not subject you all). Suffice to say, her blog home page is plastered with unicorn/rainbow "wallpaper". It's hideous and glorious, all at the same time. Anyway.
She ran a marathon in our home town this weekend, and I really wanted to make her a special "good luck shirt". I was going to stencil or use paint markers and craft her a t-shirt with a prancing, urinating unicorn. However, being a bad and forgetful sister, I completely forgot.
Not to worry! The day before the race, we were talking about how she should dress for the race (the weather was crappy), and we decided that she absolutely NEEDED said unicorn shirt.
But how to make a sharp, poignant image with less than 12 hours until the start of the race?
Being short on time (and motivation), we took the easy way out. We simply went to the craft store, got some transfer paper and fabric paint markers, and voila'.....A lucky race shirt for my sis.
She was happy with the end product. Some of you may notice that the unicorn is peeing on a person (a politician). I assure
you that unicorn urine has magical properties of protection - this is in no way meant to be rude or demeaning to that person, rather it is magical and wonderful for those doused in its glorious, golden stream.
Morning of the race
Running down the road, showing off her fab new T.
Thanks for lookin' everyone!
