DIY Digimon Crest of Hope & Light Tank tops
Jun 10, 2012
A while ago one of my friends sent me a link to a website that was selling a bunch of Digimon shirts. My favourite ones were the shirts that had the various crests on them, but at $30 a piece I couldn’t justify getting even just one. But then I thought, “hey, I could easily make those on my own.” And since graphic tees with giant symbols on them are pretty trendy, I thought making my own crest shirts would be a way for me to observe the trend but not wear, you know, giant crosses or lightning bolts.
I am honestly ridiculously happy at how these turned out. I don’t know if words can really describe my love of Digimon and what these two symbols mean to me, but the fact I can wear them now is making me super happy. So much so I had to go out and take pictures of me and the Hope shirt.
The shirt looks pretty slick with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita Spikes in Taupe Suede eh?
I plan on stenciling the other crests onto shirts eventually, but seeing as there are 6 others (crest of Kindness doesn’t count), I’m not gonna be able to finish them all in one go. Sadly, shirts and paint are not cheap.
EDIT: For the fun of it, you can watch my video tutorial on how I made these shirts here.
