Greetings --

This shirt was made to look scrappy and grungy.. hopefully I achieved that effect, heh heh.
It started out as a $1 regular white v neck shirt I got at a thrift-type store.


^ Shirt on (1).


^ Shirt on (2).  (The rib cage is not really crooked like that in real.  My corpse deformed the fabric a bit in this picture.)


^ Front design.  I printed out a stencil, cut out the pieces on black fabric and sewed them onto the shirt.  Also sewed an old zipper on there.  Then I splattered the shirt with "Dye-na-Flow" dye stuff from Michaels.


^ Detail of stitching on the skeleton.  Made to look scrappy and pieced together on purpose.  Some of the stitches actually cover up stains or small holes.


^ Back of shirt.  The patch was placed to cover up a rather nasty stain.  It's not the same white.. eh, who cares, like any other part of the shirt is anything close to perfect.  Cheesy
There are also two D-rings on the shirt, one on each side seam, at the bottom of the shirt.


^ Detail of "Frankenstein" stitching on patch on the back of the shirt and blood splatter.


^ D-ring on side of shirt.

Well, that's it!
Thanks for looking.  Smiley
