As a girl, that would probably look pretty odd on me.

Michael had his jacket and pants on for at least most of his medal ceremonies, so I think this works.

You're a guy with a crazy third hand under his shirt. That wants to grab things. Very chic

I don't know if they could copyright a screen and some buttons...especially since there's no text on the design. I hope it stays, but it's ultimately up to Woot to take the chance.

Re: PRESS MY BUTTONS



This one made me laugh. Any chance there could be more detail on the buttons? I mean if something like this is going to do good, shouldn't it be completely awesome?

I had the same idea. Unfortunately the picture I used of it makes it look like a bug shirt, which it's not. Check it out.

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

Almost forgot to post my quip:

Simply pull the shirt up over your head and *POOF* - Instant ghost! Blindly stumble in your ghostly rampage, or for you cautious types, cut out eye holes. Note: eye holes may become sultry nipple holes upon reapplication to torso.

Good for costume occasions or just to wear to work. Go show it to Jen a couple cubicles down, it's probably cool. I mean, she won't be expecting you, but you'll say "BOOGA BOOGA!" and it'll just be silly. She'll be fine.

I totally forgot what to say this costume is, though I think it's easily discernible. It's an apple. Ta. Da.

tgentry wrote:Thanks for your opinion, but I wholeheartedly disagree. Yes, I could have added a bunch of stuff all over the shirt like buttons, patches, vests, etc. but it's my opinion that it would look cheesy and no one would want to wear it. It's the equivalent to a tuxedo shirt, which rightfully has the place as one of the dumbest fad shirts ever conceived. I very purposefully exercised restraint in adding extraneous details.

It doesn't have to have a bunch of fake stuff plastered all over the shirt to make it a costume, it simply has to convey the concept that when the person is wearing the clothing, he or she "becomes" something else. Since everyone seems to be clear that the person wearing this is the giant in Jack and the Beanstalk then it definitely qualifies as a costume. And as for coasting, I spent 3-4 hours on this and it wasn't particularly easy.



I absolutely agree that you did this tastefully by not adding tons of cheesy details. For an attractive shirt it was the right choice to make.

However, that doesn't change the fact that when I saw this I thought robin hood, and it wasn't until I read the title that I got what you were going for. Every person here has read the title, and I bet that's why they're clear on what the costume is. However a person wearing this won't have a title on them to explain who they are. Although I guess they could walk around saying "fee fi foe fum" all the time.

I'm not asking for patches or a vest. Just some little detail to show that it's a giant. I'm sure you could figure out how to do it tastefully. You're good at this stuff.

I do like this idea, but I agree with some of the folks in the derby thread - this will only be funny for a limited time - maybe without the state of ohio it would have been something wearable forever, but. . .

How about the needle and thread that's 100 times bigger than it should be for a character that size? Also the harp in his bag is from the story Jack and the Beanstalk. There's enough there that even without the title people would be able to figure it out. I'm quite happy with it as it is.

hey better than 'Free' which is what my one bar does. They have an old street vendor popcorn machine in the corner that makes popcorn for the bar patrons all night long (it's cheap and salty to get you to buy more... I think it's a good strategy)

As long as you're happy. And you're getting votes too. I didn't intend to be mean. I went to an art school where every single piece we did was bluntly (and often viciously) critiqued by the entire class and I think sometimes is best to hear what people really think instead of just the good things.

Thanks for your vote again. This is my first Woot submission and re-submission, so I really appreciate the support. At least now I know for next time to make the colors closer to their template.

and yes yours is a lot better than what I was doing a year ago



Surprised it's been done before as a woot design, but I doubt it would be rejectionable just on the merit that fake cow udders on a splotched up shirt was done before. Especially since if you search for "cow costume" you get pretty much the same thing. I actually wore a costume like this about 10 years ago to a party, so I would be surprised if this was a completely novel concept. IE- I'm surprised it isn't already being sold somewhere else...
