You'll want to dress the part!
Cosplay is always awesome.
My daughter did the Oswin Oswald from the Starship Alaska
Red Dress from the Dalek Asylum.
We went oober simple and just made it out of 2 t-shirts.
She wished she had some red converse...but everyone
took their shoes off anyway, so no one noticed.
If we were going to Comic-con, we would
have spent more time on it anyway!
If you're not up for cosplay...t-shirts are awesome and easy to customize.
We did a bunch for this party!
We used FREEZER Paper stenciling for theses ones:
Love this Silhouette Cameo.
Worth its weight in gold. Seriously.
Just ran some freezer paper through it and it cut out our stencil.
Okay, this is the "tricky" part.
You iron the shiny side of the freezer paper onto the shirt.
Lay it out carefully where you want it and begin to iron.
The freezer paper with stick to the t-shirt like magic!
And even those tiny pieces that were cut out completely,
need to be refitted on and ironed in place...
Like those little guys there...line them up and iron them in place.
Next bust out the paint.
I use some fabric paint, but also got some fabric medium,
so I can add it to any paint and it will make it great for fabric...
soft still, not all stiff and rigid.
Alright, then using a stencil brush just paint like you would a stencil!
Dab down, from the outside in...although the freezer paper makes a tight seal.
Oh yeah, see that bleach spot? It was the reason it was $1 at the dollar store.
Watch it disappear...
Once I am satisfied with the painting...
Lift off the freezer paper and use a small hook
tool to get off those little pieces too!
Way cool. Sort of a steampunk vibe!
Looking good on my totally handsome little man!
Here's some other FREEZER Paper shirts we did:
Front pocket area:
and I am in love with this one!
Silhouette machine cut it out...
I weeded out the negative spaces
Ironed it on...
I've done tons of other shirts in the past...
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
