Stormtrooper Leggings

It was so much fun to make these leggings that I thought I had reached the pinnacle of fun-ness. Then I wore them. That was even more fun. I wear these ALL. THE. TIME. I wear them more than anyone should wear the same clothing article in consecutive days. Never two days in a row, but definitely every other day, as often as possible.
I designed the stamp and printed the leggings, but I didn't use the proper fabric paint. Instead, I used acrylic paint with some corn starch mixed in to increase its opacity. I think fabric paint would have been better; they have a little bit of a hand-printed rustic look (which I actually love), but we'll see if the fabric paint brings more awesomeness to the table.

I have a lot more designs in mind and am really excited to continue printing them. If you like these, let me know; I was thinking that these would be a great product to put up in an Etsy shop along with some other designs. What do you think?
Oh yeah, I also did a test print and used that to create a patch that I sewed onto one of my Target sweatshirts. I'm pretty sure that sweatshirts from Target are made from magic-infused cotton.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate this NinjaDinosaur-Pirate.

That's right. A Ninja-Dinosaur, who's also a pirate. The pinnacle of awesomeness.es.

That storm trooper stamp is awesome! I tried transferring the Star Wars poster that I printed on paper onto a pillow but sadly it just kept peeling off so I'm excited to see that your stamp turned out great on the leggings.

Thanks for all the great comments, everyone! I love that you love them. Just wanted to update you all; I do have some for sale that I will be posting this weekend. I don't have very many pairs, so if you don't get in on the first batch, there will be another opportunity, just maybe a little wait. But if you want them, I think you should have them!
