Description

it was my brother’s birthday last week, and there is an old joke between the two of us about a tie with a naked lady on it, with flashing boobs. for this birthday, i decided to make that tie. it was a very cheap make, although i forgot about a particular instruction in the making of the tie, which made my life a little difficult. i feel i won’t forget this again.

the tie is made up of black twill, with an overly stiff cotton as the insert. I found the naked lady as a tattoo on the net, and altered her a bit. as it is, she’s ok, she needs refining and work, but she does have the look of a tattoo on the tie.

the flashing boobs were the most challenging, and i have by no means found the best solution. i got two flashing LED lights and a 3v watch battery from an electrical store, and i sellotaped them together. as i said, not the best. i have an electrical engineering student in one of my classes though, and i’m going to ask him for help on the best way to do this.

this isn’t the best picture, apologies for that.
