Behold the modified (previously large and baggy) t-shirt for a Guitar Hero Battle of the Bands:
(pardon the bad picture quality - cell phones are still not cameras!)
And now the winner of "it's so bad it's good" shirt for the storied 80s party. If there's one theme we love around here it's "80s" and people honestly have costume collections just for these occasions.
Yet one can never have enough tacky 80s gear. So the next challenge was to replicate this pink and black shirt from the 80s band Flock of Seagulls. It started with a regular black button-down shirt from the Gap. I then broke out the trace paper to draft the totally gnarly pink bib, as I call it.
Once I figured out the right size I stitched up a piece like a pillow sham then added some trim to give it typical 80s geometric flair. Next I stitched the bib on one side of the shirt; I left the other sides loose and used velcro to afix all the other corners and edges.
Right now it's pretty fug, let's be honest. But once the proud owner of the shirt gets his hair done and tucks the shirt into some nice acid-washed jeans I think it'll complete the look. I expect pictures of these shirts and the stole in action...
