Two of my good friends just moved in to an on-campus university apartment together and were showing me their room. I looked at their window and saw strange-looking blue boxes that they had drawn on with a window-marker. After some questioning I figured out that they were trying to make a tetris-looking thing for their window. I decided to step in and help them.
I definitely cannot take credit for any of this: I'd made JennaDickes' tetris magnets before ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299163.0) If you haven't tried making them you should! they're pretty sweet.
After some craftster searching I found mouseatethekitty's beatles' clings (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315118.0) and a few google searches later I bought leading and fabric paint and got started.
this is what I got:

The green, white and orange ones are all glow-in-the-dark.

It actually looks really good from the parking lot! (also from this view you can see the beginnings of the blue squares that they drew...)

 Now that I have a better idea of paint consistency and how it dries I really want to make some more that are a little bit cleaner. Perhaps I'll try pacman figures next (practice makes perfect...) XD 
Overall I'm pretty satisfied!  My friends say they've already gotten comments on their window from passerbys and friends. Smiley
Any comments and advice would be very much appreciated!

Love it!

It looks great from the outside and really brightens up the building.

Have you tried Gallery Glass by Plaid? I've used it on many things and it's great. It really gives the stain glass look. Plus you can buy the already made leading strips, which would be great for the tetris blocks.  Grin
