When you’re too in love to let it go

Guess who’s getting a makeover.

when you're too in love to let it go

I found a Tetsuwan Atom shirt in that ukay beside Lolo Oboy‘s. An official Tetsuwan Atom shirt. In a thrift store. And it was CLEAN. And there weren’t any damages! If that wasn’t an awesome find, I don’t know what is.

But the thing is: it’s a boy’s size. Although I’m no newbie in wearing men’s shirts, this one in particular isn’t very flattering for me. It’s too short to be a proper shirt but too long to be a baby tee, the lines are too straight, and the neckline is just wrong. I look like a girl forcing myself in a little boy’s shirt….which is exactly what I am. Haha!

I’ve had this since January, but I have yet to wear it because of the reasons above. I’ve tried wearing it, but had to change out of it before leaving the apartment. It just did NOT work.

But it’s an awesome shirt! Just check out that holographic design sewn on it!

So. My solution? A pair of scissors. Mwahahaha! I contemplated cutting out the design and sewing it on another shirt, but, after looking up some tutorials on shirt cutting, I have another plan in mind.

I totally forgot to shoot before and after pictures. Drat. In the photo above, the t-shirt was already cut. But I did it with a cheap (and rather rusted—ACK) pair of scissors, so the result wasn’t very…satisfactory. BUT I shall buy a good pair of sewing shears and fix it. I promise. I shall post a photo when it’s done.

Title from “Fix You”, Coldplay.
