Hey, all Cheesy

Still on a stenciling kick, and still going with incredibly detailed stencils. Ever since I did my Gallifreyan shirt (lots of tiny islands!), I've gotten hooked with using more ambitious stencils. I've gone on to do my multiple fandoms shirt (lots of stencils + the LotR inscription!) and now this one. My friends and I also did a bunch of shirts for a volunteering gig we have going, but I'll post about 'em when I finally get a decent pic of them. This shirt came to be because couldn't get the idea of stenciling a mix of Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who on a shirt out of my head so I finally did it.

I couldn't find the perfect fitting shirt, so I ended up reconstructing a man's shirt to work with. Still not a perfect shirt, but definitely fits better all around.

This stencil was another PITA to make (it literally took my hours to finish it), but my new swivel knife definitely made it easier compared to my first attempt with the LotR inscription.

Here's a pic of the stenciled design on the shirt:


And here's the pic of it worn (yeah, I put it on the back. It's not lopsided, it's just really hard to take a pic of your own back):


A few more pics and some more details on my blog: http://zzdia.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/lotr-dw-shirt/

I can't get over how amazing this is.
I have made myself the Seal of Rassilion stencil once and I know how difficult that is.. i can only imagine the time it took to turn the Fanorian inscription into a stencil..
I have the biggest respect for you! you did something amazing!
