Has anyone but me noticed that T-shirts are way overpriced when they have any sort of logo on them? It's ridiculous! Normal, unadorned T-shirts are maybe five dollars? But add a single logo.... like a TV show symbol or, and the price jacks up to like fifty dollars a pop.
Who does that?!
It's a freaking T-shirt for crying out loud! Sheesh!
So, I came up with a solution to this-- well technically, someone on pinterest did, and then my cousin did it, and I stole the idea.
Bleach can make some of your fangirly dreams come true!
Right. For this project you will need:
*A dark colored T-shirt, or hoodie, or whatever you want transform into geeky awesomness. (I got mine for $1.99 at Michaels)
*Bleach. (Maybe a touch watered down.) And something to spray it with. (NO laser spraying! A nice, gentle fuzzle will do perfectly. I used a Windex container.)
*A template of the logo you want.
*Straight pins. For pinning the logos. Duh.
So you're going to want to cut out your template and pin it flat to the shirt.
Grab your spray bottle of bleach, and take your shirt outside (or somewhere, where if the bleach gets out of control, nothing will be damaged.)
Aim and spray. (I put a piece of paper behind the.... the.... the neck hole (I know it has a real name, I just can't remember it right now), so the back of the shirt wouldn't get bleached.)
Unpin the templates, and WATCH THE MAGIC HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's dead easy. It's cheap! And It's fast, so that's lovely.
I need to figure out one to do for Supernatural. (I don't want to go around wearing a Devil's Trap symbol on my front. That could be awkward to explain.)
I made them yesterday.....Guess what I'm wearing today?
