Let me kick off this post by specifying just how awesome our shirts turned out. This wasn’t your typical winged chop job. It actually turned out really well. We had boat neck cap sleeve shirts, v-neck slit shirts, sleeveless shirts with shoulder ties… I, personally, had a halter neck shirt with the back slit and tied, mostly because my shirt was a size too big. But due a lot to the fact that I did mine the night before.
If you have an event that you have to wear a mens shirt for but still want to look like a female (if you are already, of course) I highly suggest taking the scissors to it. You can search for “t-shirt surgery” or “t-shirt reconstruction.” There are easy ideas requiring only scissors and there are some really cool ones for those who have mad sewing machine skillz. Ohmystars Craft is the site we got our ideas from.
Also, there are quite a few facts that I’ve remembered since my last post that could have been added to my last post:
Forgotten fact #1
When we were leaving Bootleggers (the first time) we had our photo taken by Minnage, one of those places that takes photos at events. We are so cool that we made it in their CfC gallery. Here’s our pic:
That photo includes Kirk, complete with tricked out hot pink shirt, collar still popped. And on the Minnage site I also found a nice photo of Hot Pink and the guys that hosed him:
Forgotten fact #2
Now in the first Minnage photo, you’ll notice a banana. On the walk to Champps I noticed Matt carrying a banana. Apparently he got it from someone and was going to eat it because he was hungry, but he was too drunk and smooshed half of it. Somehow I got smooshed banana all over my hand, and although Matt wouldn’t let me wipe it off on him, he did let me wipe it back onto the banana. The banana hung out with us at Champps but was left behind because it got too messy.
Forgotten fact #3
Matt’s smooshed protein bar that he carried in his pocket. It kept making appearances, every time being flatter and more condensed than the time before. He eventually ate it.
Forgotten fact #4
The light rail. I had no idea there was one downtown. It really through me for a trip when I saw it light railing along next to us. For some reason it reminded me of being in San Francisco with the cable cars, sans cables.
Forgotten fact #5
At Champps Matt had a great idea. He was going to get us kicked out of the next bar by way of dancing too good. You can re-read that all you want, you read it right the first time.
Forgotten fact #6
The extra sticker. Somewhere along the line I picked up an extra sticker from The Lodge. I noticed that a second one appeared in the photos that were taken of us. Where it ended up going after that, I don’t know. But I did find a sticker rolled up and stuck to the bed sheets the next day.
Forgotten fact #7
It took us until the 5th bar, Rosens, before we ran into another group that modified their shirts. We ran into a couple of girls in the bathroom. Their team name was the “Tripods” because, “you know, when you get drunk and start doing tripods?” Awesome. I’ve never done a drunken tripod. In fact, I haven’t done a tripod since about 8th grade, but drunken tripods sound like an interesting concept.
Those are all the forgotten facts that I can remember that I remembered. I wanted to get them out there before I forgot again. Part 3, including the after party and the events that occurred afterward, are still to come. In response to Blog Reader Kristen’s comment, if there’s anything I’ve forgotten that occurred after Rosens, it’s not due to the number of days that have passed since the event… if you know what I mean.
