This is probably the most popular project I’ve ever put out into the wilds of the internet, and sent more hits to my blog than I’d ever had before.
I then, of course, moved my blog from livejournal to wordpress. D’oh. Maybe some of ’em will follow.
Anyway! Three thrift store shirts: large man’s black, large man’s yellow, relatively fitted (but not enough, as you’ll see) long-sleeved gray woman’s shirt. One very strange and nerdy girl. Some hand sewing, some machine sewing, a lot of cutting and measuring and pinning and cutting again, and voila! A batman shirt, complete with a) obligatory arm spikes, b) hood with bat ears and c) utility belt complete with four functional pockets.
It’s fantastic and I’ll love it forever. You can see more, including some in-progress pictures, here: http://corvustristis.wordpress.com/2010/02/05/da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na/
