Derby #65: Shirt as Costume

By the Magic of Grayskull

I love it! It's not incidental text, though.

Rejected because: I love it! It's not incidental text, though.

it's a bit of a risk, but with all the zeldas and the like we've already seen in the derby thread, I felt it was an easy enough design to be worth it. It's not like there'll be much in the way of self respect this derby, so I am happy to put mine on hold for something that may indeed carry a bunch of fans.

Orko was always one of my favorite cartoon characters when I was younger. I actually made a full costume once. Hell, I may even post pictures if this manages to print. I AM ALL ABOUT GIVING BACK.

Love it! I would be so tempted to make it a full costume if I got this shirt. I'd have to order the biggest size I could so it would be loose like his.

I think that would be amusing. Could you see a floodgate of little kids in Orko costumes with their battered and recolored Harry Potter hats from a couple halloweens back and purple scarves running up to houses for candy? I see a great resurgence of the least recreated of the characters. (put them in black long johns and make it look like they're floating) easy costume

I love it. Mostly because I would also wear the scarf and hat with it. I can picture it and it is great.

If this is on red, I love it. If it's on cranberry, I hate it!

this is the only entry which makes me laugh out loud, and that I would potentially buy. Well done adder. perhaps you should sub under another name if it's an awesome design like this or the koi circling japan one. Well, gmv, at least.

It's appreciated, sir, but it ain't gonna happen. I'd rather see my designs I am an un-original person week after week under my name than see the same thing win under a fake one. I am willing to own up to my worst work, and certainly want credit for my best.

As for this one, I'd always appreciate a win, but it's not like I can lament how much time my work took. It was a quick idea, and I resigned myself to any fate before entering it. I'm just glad some people are pulling for it.

Will you put this in your shop once the 60 days are up? If I can find a cranberry skirt to wear with it, I'd really like to get the shirt and make a cute little costume for a sci-fi convention next year.

I could always put it up right this second, since woot doesn't seem very concerned about people breaking their contracts, but the honorable side of me says that I'll put it up in the new year. I'll even make it available in, like, 6X, so it can make a real cloak ;)
