i got some plain shirts at micheals, but i saw some at walmart last time i was there (i think they have orange too! ...sorry lol). plus theyre reasonably priced.

the incubus shirt looks fine but ive yet to wear it so i dont know how itll  look on a body.

i did what you mentioned with an incubus shirt i outgrew. cut out the design and sewed it on a bigger shirt of a contrasting (but matching? lol) color.

another idea ive been considering, but dont know how well it works would be to cut open from the bottom all the way through the sleeve and add material. so it would make some kind of stripe on his side.

thats all ive got, i hope it works for you

hehe, thanks all.

amelia bedelia - more than anything it was a pain to cut out. there are only 2 islands aside from the e's. one that i forgot to fix on the computer version of the stencil on the first guys shirt and one of the second guys eyes. but if youre skilled with exacto knifes (which takes practice, believe you me lol) then its not so bad... so long as you dont lose those islands haha. but i found that it was the easier one to paint and it shows up fine when its finished. accuracy is the key i suppose =P

xmelinda - haha that is so cool! yes, i used acrylic, but the shirt was so thin and paint so thick i think its going to crack. my original idea was to do a picture from my aim is true.. on the cd itself theres a close up of his face that i wanted, but it didnt look quite right in stencil form. so i googled and found that one instead, i tweaked it to fix the islands on his face but hes still recognizable AND i didnt have a thousand tiny pieces to stil on.. if you use it id love to see how it turns out =D

woah. im blind and just noticed your link. i like your goodies. but i thought up two quick questions. what the heck is that song on the main page? and 2, have you ever gotten in trouble for making band shirts and selling them? i thought making money off of someones name was a no-no. either way, they charge too much and your stuff is cute.

ooh... i loved that couch. you would have to be careful though, i mean if you didnt cut it right youd completely screw the whole thing up lol. and dont forget to think of a way to smooth it all out around the cut off edge.

i agree with braden. it wouldnt really matter how clean it was. and if it saves you a chunk of change, i think that little extra elbow grease would be worth it.

but if you do mess up, you could always stick in on a patio/porch and put flower pots all over it =D
