Description
I'm unhappy with the t-shirt and the paint - I had to switch brand of paint and this new brand does not come out as nicely as the old brand! The t-shirt is a 13 year old BOYS that does not fit properly, even I take it in it looks wrong, argh!!

We did not wear this at the graveyard due to the early hours of it closing! Unfortunately my dye did not hold in the wig in the rain, and ruined the costume :@ which is good, as I can remake it better if need be. I'm so unhappy with it.

The contacts are sclera, by 9mmsfx. 2D & Murdoc's wigs are by me.

Thank you, but I'm not happy with the fit of the t-shirt. I've redone it like twice and... not happy!

I do not like the different acrylic and the texture it gives.

I also do not like also the wig when it is not under the army helmet. :|

*does not like* XD

Hmmmm I suppose fabric paint over such a large area is going to have the same texture... what about iron on stuff? The kits are really good nowadays! Or if you're up for the challenge, maybe try a batik technique to mask off the shape and dye the fabric itself? For the sleeves and neckline, have you tried cutting out the equivalent bits on a red t-shirt and sewing on the white? Frankenstein style!!!! xxx

@Ino: ThanQ~~ lmao lmao I don't know what made us think it!?

@Georggi: True true!! Thank you for your advice! I think next time I'll just make sure I have the brand I know works perfectly. So many times I made t-shirt for my friend with just acrylic. Goddamn posh brands!! XDDD x
