So last year, I got a tattoo. Someone eventually noticed it was the Dragon Age: Origins loading screen image...which is an odd thing to get as a tattoo, I admit. My reasoning was that it was a brilliant bit of stealth geekery--anyone who played the game might recognize me as a fellow geek, but to anyone who hadn't, it was just a cool, swirly, vaguely-Celtic-knot thing. When I'm old and gray I might laugh about the story behind it, but it will still be pretty!
Well, I liked the art from Dragon Age II, too, but I feel no urge to get inked again, so I made clothing from a loading screen image instead, laboriously cut from freezer paper and stenciled on a reconned shirt.
I really like working with freezer-paper stencils. I need to do it more!
ETA: I cleaned up the tags on all my posts, streamlining them by craft, for the most part. If you follow me and your list shows edits, that's why you got spammed, and I apologize. But it really needed to be done.
