All shalt bow before the altar of...
PRINCE

I started out with a plain purple t-shirt...

I pinned it;

and reconstructed it to fit better.

Then I found that picture in the booklet on the "Purple Rain" CD.  I wish I knew who this is, but no matter.

I made this stencil from it.  Bloody difficult to cut out!

In light lavender, I stenciled it with fabric paint.

I used superglue for my happy sequins.

And... the final product!

What's that over there?  It must have been some of Prince's awesomeness fluttering across the room.

Sequins on the back, too.  Ta da!

I'm pretty sure that's Appolonia, who played Prince's love interest in the movie and was as pretty as all-git-out. Good job on the shirt. This challenge is turning out some truly awesome stuff!
