so this is basically the Three in the Morning dress as interpreted by a broke hipster.
from SWAHC! ON TUMBLR EVER HOLY SHIT
7/20/11 EDIT: first off oh my god you really like my shirt, thank you ♥ there’s like friggin 1200 notes here whyyyy
i’m wagering at this point that a good chunk of you do not know who Bec is
second, if you do this I wanna see yours! GIVE ME PICTURES OF YOUR SHIRTS
argyle-apells did this squiddly version and it looks appropriately corrupted :3
premium—heart did a sidey-scrunched version. me gusta.
okay let’s get started:
get the following together and go down to the basement
- black cotton tee
- duct tape
- 2 spray bottles (only one pictured ‘cos i’m a dumpass)
- glow-in-the-dark fabric paint
- a plastic bag (there’s a paper one in the shot, but i quickly realized that that was much too small, so a trash bag was used.)
- pictured but not needed: elmer’s glue, i was gonna go for a half-assed batik but yeah, that got scrapped thankfully
- paper towels, dude, how did i forget those
- also diet mountain dew, my best bro
Lay your shirt out and put the bag inside, come on, like you never decorated a shirt before, jeez.
Then tape up the shirt in stripes as desired.
Tuck the sleeves under, and voila, the world’s shittiest rugby shirt.
Add a Bec outline outta duct tape. Don’t be dumb like me, do this on a piece of wax paper first so you’re not sitting on the floor for 15 minutes swearing and going “IT’S CROOKED!”
Yes, the Bec is in the lower corner, not the upper. This is because what with me being proportioned considerably larger than a 13-year-old girl, putting the Bec in the upper corner would put it awkwardly over my boob. No.
Also, make sure that the Bec outline is really well taped, don’t leave any gaps like I did! Some bleach leaked through and Bec’s lookin’ a little like a Borg here. :x
Take one bottle and put in some bleach. You won’t need a lot, maybe like an inch high in the bottle.
Take the other bottle and put in an inch of water, then add some paint. I used about half of a 30 ml bottle. Don’t use all the paint! Shake to mix.
OKAY TIME FOR FUN. Spray the shirt with bleach until satisfied. Play around with it so it looks uneven and nebul-ish.
Then, do the same with the bottle of paint solution.
Take the rest of the bottle, cut it open, and add just a little water, a couple drops, to thin the paint just a little, like, nail polish consistency. Shake to mix, and use your fingers or whatever to splatter the shirt for big shiny stars.
Go clean up your mess and wash your hands.
Now after everything’s put away, dab the puddles off the tape so you don’t dribble everywhere.
LIFDOFF the tape and OH MAN WOW. Oh, and the wet-looking spot up top is a Mountain Dew spill whoops.
Then, turn off the lights and see the STARS OH MAN WOW.
Shirt is still on the floor, gonna wash it in the morning after the paint dries.
Okay we’re done here. GO DO IT YOU KNOW YOU WANNA YEAH
