70 Days to Go: Maureen's NDAD Creation

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..
