One of my strange addictions is watching videos of how to style long hair like people from movies and TV shows. When one of the vlogs (video blog) that I follow mentioned that she was having a contest that could be anything artistic as long as it had to do with The Game of Thrones, I knew I had to enter. I knew that I could do a stencil t-shirt, and I knew exactly who would be on it; Arya. As I was re-watching some of her clips from the show I heard the, “I don’t want to be a Lady,” quote and knew exactly what I wanted on the t-shirt (click here to watch the scene).
As part of the contest, I needed to submit a video for the contest. So I videoed myself making the t-shirt from start to finish, and then combined them into a video. You can view the video below. It was a very strange process, and it had a steep learning curve. In the end, I was rather pleased with how the shirt and the video turned out.
As for the t-shirt, I really enjoyed the end product. As far as pictures being turned into stencils, I think this is my best ones so far. While most of my previous ones were silhouettes, my only other actual picture (the It All Ends T-Shirt) did not turn out how I liked. I thought Arya’s face was easily recognizable. The rest of the text and Direwolf sigil had just a little seepage at the edges, and are better at a bit of a distance.
Overall I was happy with both t-shirt and video. I was very happy then to discover that I had won 3rd place in the contest. Even better, I won a prize pack, and the contest runner was good enough to ship it internationally to me. Below is a picture of my prize pack. I’ll also be adding reviews of the two Game of Thrones prizes to the Inspired By section soon.
Final Verdict: Love how it turned out, and won a prize package with it!
