Remember the [ Bunny Ragdoll Shirt ] I made a few weeks back?
I finally finished her off this afternoon after having a long um-&-ah session on what to put on the nape print instead of the usual “Don’t Touch the Moon Clover!” logo (Which didn’t quite fit with the theme!) and…voila!

The Heart is red chrome and reflects at a short distance, and I had a perfect excuse to break into it and try it out 😀

I wanted to get it up on Etsy this afternoon, but it got dark and rainy in a ridiculous amount of time…

…Never mind (Although Jennifer enjoyed getting dressed up!), let’s try out a test print for ‘Madeline’…(With Silver patches & a Spectrum star eye)…

…and get the Sketchbook out!

This is Katie – She was particularly fun to draw.
She likes Phil Collins, Hamsters, collecting Magic Trolls & tea with two sugars =^.^=

The Bunny Ragdoll

After my [ Test Print // Muffin ] Post the other week, I tried out my Bunny Ragdoll on a black unisex tee. I’d been working on Wrestling Gear ] orders for two afternoons & evenings in a row so it was quite nice to wrap those up ready to take back to Sue for construction and blow the dust off my sketchbook.
I did toy with the idea for each Ragdoll to be released in two versions – one on a black tee with complimentary printed borders and one on tie-dye in complimentary colours with black embellishments, but eventually decided to attach each Ragdoll with his/her own two-tie-dye colours or an elaborate printed embellishment to make that type of Shirt unique to the Ragdoll.

B.u.i.l.d.i.n.g.A.B.u.n.n.y

This design is made in stencil format as per usual Vinyl Printing Methods, each layer being heat-sealed at 160°, printed on top each other and done entirely by creating a centre-fold and constructed by eye. The various stencils are sized, cut and weeded from 8 different shaded rolls of vinyl in 35 parts including black, white, purple, red, tartan, metallic green, spectrum chrome & mirrored chrome.

Bunny on her own:
Metallic green/Red Rose detail added and mirrored chrome Needle, Scissors, Button, Safetypin & Broken Heart complete the circle:

I’m super happy with how this has turned out. The sewing accessories were added as a later “Hmm-this-still-needs-a-bit-extra” feature after a bit of thought and the metallic green & mirrored vinyl don’t take too much attention away from the Bunny Ragdoll. She’s my first ‘Gothic’ design and I’m well proud of her.
Can’t wait to get the rest of my Ragdolls in print 😀

New adventures in Fashion Design

Hey guys! I’ve been super-busy these last few weeks with work, cranking out Wresting Gear after our bi-annual rush period, sorting out existing Shirt orders and generally having life happen, but I’ve been cracking on with my Fashion Design and released four new designs to the Etsy Store!

[★] Tie Dye Pink/Purple Cosmic Chaos Shirt

First off, my favourite from the whole new batch! This is probably the most challenging, time consuming and detailed Shirt I’ve produced so far and began life as a plain white blank before I did some Mad Science on it and took three days to make with my shifts at work. It was dyed Flamingo Pink before being scrunched in the “Spiral” position to be gently immersed in Intense Violet and then extensively washed and dried to make sure the colours didn’t run. It was inspired by some Space-themed graffiti I drew in biro a few years ago and features aliens, spaceships, ray guns, planets, stars and galaxies in two-layer vinyl prints. Available in the Etsy store in S, M, L, XL, XXL & 3XL.

 

 

 

 

[★] Rainbow Marijuana Leaf white vest top

This was quite fun to do, and mostly consists of salvagings from my scrap box. My Rainbow Hologram Hash Leaf shirt has gotten quite popular, and I wanted to do a Women’s similar version before experimenting with fabric markers. “Don’t touch the Moon Clover” is on the back in black. Available in the Etsy store in 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18.

[★] Angel Fish Light Reactive Pleochroic black vest top

This was another “Let’s have a rummage in the Scraps box and see what we can come up with” design. I love how it turned out – the Angel Fish are Spectrum vinyl which reflects all hues of the rainbow in different angles of light. Features “Don’t touch the Moon Clover” is on the back in hot pink. Available in the Etsy store in 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18.

 

 

 

[★] Rainbow space Planets tumble sparkle stars black vest top

An update on the Unisex Planets Shirt I used to offer. FeaturesPlanets in Red, Flouro Orange, Hot Pink, golden Yellow, Apple Green, Purple, Sky Blue and Royal blue and is adorned with Spectrim stars which reflect all of the hues of the rainbow in different angles of light. “Don’t touch the Moon Clover” is on the back in hot pink. Available in the Etsy store in 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 & 18.

 

 

 

Hope you like!

Tie Dye

Donning my “Mad Science” blue labcoat – erractic and excited behaviour as standard – I had a first attempt at Tie-Dye yesterday with Dylon’s Flamingo Pink & Intense Violet, and was quite pleased with the result. Also found that bleaching a black shirt into a tie-dye pattern and attemting to dye the bleached bits DOES NOT WORK – will have to buy seperate black alongside another colour for these and good job I have a mighty stash of white Gidlan shirts that have been sitting around doing nothing until now. I used the “Spiral twist” for these and even though it’s not as prominent as it usually is, that was okay because it might have otherwise distracted from the front print I spent most of yesterday working on, when I wasn’t stirring my Cauldron in the Kitchen and cackling…

Super Insane happy proud of this one and made an XL for myself (Modelled below by Jennifer – poor lass, all she wants is a quiet night & a cuppa, and definately *NOT* me dragging her around and dressing her up!)
I nearly got emotional once they were both finished – who knew that a little lass from Wingate could make anything that looked *THIS* Good:

Both are up in the [ ETSY SHOP ] @ £14.99 each!
Can’t wait to experiment with Blues & greens and new silhouette plates for more Sea Life, but gotta drag my little cheeks over to Sukiwear for the rest of the evening on the new batch of orders 😉

Jellyfish, Butterflies & Weed

Three new designs up in the [ ETSY SHOP ]  today!

★ OOAK Purple Butterfly Wing Long Sleeve Shirt Size 10
Fitted Long-sleeve featuring front tribal flame & star design in metallic purple and hot pink. Back features metallic purple Butterfly wings with matching hot pink accents. This was one of a few shirts I designed for a New Age shop that opened locally but sadly had to close before we were able to ofer our designs there.

★ OOAK Black Jellyfish & mirror bubbles white Long Sleeve Shirt size 8
White Ladies Long-sleeve featuring a lone black Jellyfish surrounded by silver mirrored bubbles. I have a stash of long-sleeves (Either really Small or really Large) left over in the Stock Cupboard from back in the day when ASDA used to supply them, and I’m planning on using up the last few ones I have left from the old pool before I source a new Long Sleeve supplier.

 

★ Rainbow sparkly hologram Hash Leaf Shirt.
Available in the usual Unisex sizes (Small – 3XL) – Poor Jennifer was swamped in this one!

Messing around with Bleach, Fabric Dye & Acrylic paints tomorrow…

DON’T TOUCH THE MOON CLOVER!

Two new designs produced today to celebrate the re-open of the Etsy Shop where I’ll (Hopefully!) be adding at least one new design every week to get my little cheeks into gear for doing this properly now!

I’m still on re-doing the PNB Website, where it’ll just have the bare information, and I’ll keep using the Storenvy Shop & keeping all of my OOAK Upcycled stuff for Etsy.

jennyjelly

First up, is a light-reactive new design which features two jellyfish which will glow a greenish hue in the dark when exposed to both artificial & natural light or a prolonged length of time.
Surrounding the Jellyfish are tiny bubbles which are silver in true colour, but they will reflect all the colours of the rainbow at every angle when exposed to light (as seen in the pictures).
On the back of the neck is the new “Don’t touch the Moon Clover” PNB Logo in Hot Pink (Which also glows under UV light!). I’m going to reserve the UV-reactive vinyls for this logo on any light-reactive black shirts.

Next, is a psychedelic Magic Mushrooms design on a fitted white long-sleeve from dead stock which I’ve had when ASDA used to supply them a LONG time ago. If it gets popular, I’ll source some for regular stock as I’m growing quite fond of the the Spectrum vinyl effect on white garments!

Design is also light-reactive, and features three cute Mushrooms which are silver in true colour, but they will reflect all the colours of the rainbow at every angle when exposed to light (as seen in the pictures).
On the back of the neck is the “Don’t touch the Moon Clover” PNB Logo in Black.

Aloha!

Despite being knocked on my arse all day with an *extremely* upset tummy bug, I’ve managed to cut out and colour in a daft badge to cover most of the rain damage on a cupcake picture I bought a few weeks ago…

…and designed/made a new T-shirt!
I still have a bunch of custom orders to crack on with, but there’s no way I’m touching them today and risking spraying my germs all over them, especially as some are for newborn babies and Merch Stalls >.<
I think the worse part about being Uncoupled is having to be your own Nurse when you’re Ill – Poor Twylla didn’t know what was going on when I was leaving teeth marks in the Toilet Seat at 3am, or the loud swearing this morning when I was scrubbing vomit from the bedroom carpet – Haha! I’ve never been ill on my own before :/ Tried picking up my Guitar for a bit of practice (I HATE Lazy and Poorly days!) and dropped my nice Nylon  Plectrum inside of it. Failing to get it out – I gave up >.<

I’m in Love with my new Labels though ♥
Everytime I feel like giving up on Planet Neon Bunny, someone abroad orders a bunch of my designs and eggs it on to keep going.
I bought Jennifer a few months ago to encourage me to get more into my own Designs, and she’s coming home tomorrow after she went on loan to Becky for a College Fashion Show project last month:
(I totally got Cool Big Sister Points for this!)

kimbeck

Becky is my pierced, tattooed, artistically gifted, creative, blue-haired, 18-year-old little sister (8 years my Junior) whom I love dearly and unashamedly spoil at every opportunity. It was weird enough growing up as an Oddball in my family, but it’s even weirder having someone of the same ingredients who is exactly like you. I beg for a Painting every Christmas & Birthday, and already have several of hers up in the Flat. She’s a proper little Corker ♥

This is Jennifer:

She is bloody gorgeous! ♥ I’ve missed her, even though she’s half-naked outside my Supervision these days 😉

Seeing as we’re off on a Creative Mission, I’ll finish by introducing my cartoon, prettier, more-assertive avatar “Allie” and her recent appearance in my Scrapbook:
