Happy Thursday! I am so excited! I got my Cosplay in America V2 in yesterday! It was a nice surprise, especially after such a crazy week!
I have been anticipating this book since I pre-ordered it back in March!
The pictures and stories are wonderful! It shows cosplayers in “real life” in their own environments working on the things they love most. It’s inspiring and amazing.
I love Pinterest! The fact that I can find all different kinds of DIY ideas and tutorials, is awesome for when I am in a creative slump or super stressed, which is how I have been lately. So to keep my sanity, I decided to look through Pinterest for a small and fun DIY project for tops. I wear a lot of tanks to work, mainly because I am running around set like a crazy person and it can get really hot under the studio lights and in the building 😦
So as the title said, the DIY I found is how to make your own graphic tanks. To add some fun and creativity to the mix, I decided to create my own graphics, that have both geeky and fashion elements to them. I am just designing a whole bunch and then I will decide on which ones I am going to actually make.
So I tested the waters with one of my favorites 😀
– Transfer Paper for Light Fabrics —> Dharama Trading Super Soft InkJet Paper – DIY Graphic (Mirrored)
– White Tank
– Iron (Set on High, as per the transfer directions)
– Hard Surface (I put my iron mat between the shirt just to be safe)
Test Image Size and Mirror Print the image for Transfer
Ready to Press
Press and Hold the Iron on High
Gently Pull the Transfer Away
I am so happy how this came out! I highly recommend the Supersoft Transfer Paper! I cannot wait to make more of these for work and Yoga :3
