    Customized sports fan clothes and care packages

    Advertisements
    When I was in college I hated the fact that there wasn't a lot of variety and nothing ever fit me like I wanted it to. So I made my own clothes to wear on game day! I took a pair of old pants that still fit but I didn't really wear anymore and I painted them!

    The Front


    Close-up - I didn't use any stencils. I just look and draw/paint


    The Back


    My pants have gone through the wash about 20 times, at least. I have spilled everything from beer to nacho cheese on them. I use fabric paint and I put about 10 coats on so it doesn't come off or fade.

    I can paint in any colors you would want (within limits of fabric paint colors). I can also paint in any type of lettering, as long as you send me what you want written in a sample of that lettering. I can also do logos and pictures. I can basically put whatever you want on a pair of your pants, making your gear unique to anyone else's. Just send me the pair of pants and I would paint them for you.

    I would do a pair of pants for $30 (including shipping) or shirts for $20. This includes the cost of the paint, brushes, and other supplies. I could also do jackets, sweat pants, hats, underwear, etc. You provide the article of clothing and I will paint whatever it is you want me to I do best with sports teams and logos (they are easy to paint) but if you would like something else you can ask and I'll see what I can do It would help if you could provide pictures because my best work comes from when I have something to look at

    So....would anyone be interested??

    Here are some care packages that I have painted for my hubby and a friend's hubby. More examples of what I can do

    There are entire lines of women's team fan gear out there now. In fact, the MLB line was "designed" by Alyssa Milano, who is famous for boinking about half of the pitchers in the major leagues. . .

    The NFL considers female fans their fastest growing demographic, and even the NCAA is getting on board with lots of "women's fit" gear

    and that I totally understand. However, there are three advantages to what I could do:

    1) ordering something from those sites online or getting it in a store doesn't guarantee that it will fit the way a person individually wants it to. It will fit a majority of women in "general" but that's just what their gear is, general. I felt like when I went looking for my fan gear it was never exactly how I wanted it to fit so I would "settle" for what they had. This way, it's their own clothes that they know fit them the way they like it to. No question about it.

    2) Anyone can buy those clothes. When you go to a game, it's pretty much a guarantee that you will see 10 other people wearing the exact same shirt as you. With what I do, every piece is unique because it's specified to the person who wants it. It's hand painted and designed by the customer, not the company. And again, there would be no settling because it would be exactly what they want and how they want it. Heck, I can even do wingdings lettering

    3) I can do college and highschool teams as well. With specified sports (softball, soccer, wrestling, gymnastics) and colors and sayings. Talk about a limited variety for those clothes. My highschool had about 4 different shirts you could buy, and they were not gender specific.

    all free-hand I did print out a picture of the ram logo to look at, but I drew and painted it on myself
