I'm such a TV/movie girl that when I saw Maureen's creation I flipped. I love my Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose tee (FNL fans unite!!) and was obsessed with today's piece just for my love of the movie she referenced. Check it out... I got this camisole at Target and it even though it wasn't incredibly cheap it was a worthwhile purchase, especially being someone with VERY few summer clothes. It seemed pretty bland though, just being plain grey and all.
Where's Maureen going with this??
Being a geek, when I think camis, I think "ELLEN RIPLEY!" (from the Alien movies).
I doubt anyone else has this knee-jerk reaction, but I felt that a Weyland Yutani logo would go nicely.
(I totally remember her wearing that white tank!!)
I first printed out a vectorized version of the logo, minus the words.
Next, I created a stencil using a razor blade and a self-healing mat.
I added a dash of acrylic paint...
...let it dry, then BOOM!
It's not quite Ellen Ripley, but fun geek-chic DIY/sprucing up. (Sorry about the bad mirror picture!)
I love this Maureen and I think it's total Ripley! I love me some Alien too. I wanted to be Newt when I was a kid. Oh the memories..
