Man! You get into character!

Note: You should never point your blaster at your own head when facing a Sith Lord. It's uncivilized...

P.S. I want one of those M2019 blaster holsters. Where can I get me one?

I would say that is without a doubt the Magnoli shirt. It does look different in that light than on the website but the fabric is very unique.

I am not Magnoli, I am from Illinois. I have one brother. The shirt is a magnoli shirt but it was so bright when I got it. I soaked it for a few minutes in a black dye bath and it reallt toned it down. After the dyeing the pink stitching really came out. The dye didn't darken the pink thread. The fabric is printed and the black dye did the trick.

I was wondering about the shirt. It didn't look bad in your photos, much better than the other pics I saw.

Fascinating Han, im expecting my shirt any day now, could you reveal the brand of dye you used and if you used any techniques other than the bottle instructions to do the job, it looks great.
Cheers, Tim.

Yeah, i thought about using pencils for clothes to alter the shirt and fabric, well a precision work i guess !...but could work imho with the right color of pencil. After the black dye the crossed lines seems to be still there unlike the screen used shirt, anyway it looks much much better ...

Well since I did not want to use the washing machine. I took one pack of black RIT dye and put it in a coffee filter. Then I put the filter over a large cup and poured hot water over the filter. The led to a very diluted black liquid without the granuels of the dye. Then I put the black mixture into a small tub of hot water. I put the dry shirt in and moved it around by hand as if I wash washing it. After about five minutes I put in cold clean water and then hung it up to dry. You must air dry it. You can leave it in as long as you want. I just wanted to tone down the brightness of it. Remeber it will dry a few shade lighter. The fabric is thin so don't manhandle it. I like the shirt but I had to dye it. It was just to darn bright so I took the chance and it worked. In costuming it doesn't always work out when you try something like dyeing but this time it did.
