My boyfriend is a CRAZY Futurama fan, and he's turned me into one also.  He'll be visiting for two weeks on Sunday and so I made him this shirt for when he leaves.  What do you guys think?

It's from 30% Iron Chef: Season 4, Episode 11 Smiley

Sorry for the poor quality photo, I'm in the process of moving, so I don't have a place to really lay this out to take a picture, so I just held it upright on my lap.

Hehehehe! That's so neat. I love that show. I am sure he will love the shirt.

It was very simple.  From start to finish (buying the materials to it being finished) was about an hour.  Basically I just got a regular white Hanes t-shirt, (because white really isn't his favorite he probably won't wear it often no matter how much he likes it and I didn't want to spend a whole lot on it), and a small bottle of black "puff paint."  This particular brand was Polymark, but I just got it because it was the cheapest they had. 

I took a piece of paper and free-handed the letters onto it with marker so I could see it through the shirt.  Next, I taped the paper to the board that I put the shirt over.  I then drew a thin line with the paint where I had drawn the letter on the paper.  Finally, I smushed (that's a technical term Wink) it out with a q-tip to make it have the uneven edges like Zoidberg's.  Now I just have to wait for it to dry completely and wash it and then I can give it to him!

Thank you!

Of course, only the coolest people will have any idea what it means when he's wearing it, but that's part of the fun. Smiley

Futurama is wonderful as is this shirt!!! <3 <3
does anyone else think that the singer Shaggy sounds like Dr. Zoidberg? Just think about it, he totally does...

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.
