TT House Shirts!! [Aug. 16th, 2005|09:15 pm]
Members of the 'Tony Toledo' house


Heya TT!

It took me a while but I finally inked in the first draft of a design I want to put on shirts for TEH BEST HOUSE EVER at witching hour. I have a cafepress store, TwoNeptunes, and I plan on selling them there almost at cost.

So in the theme of pirates, witches, and all things sparkly and HP, I give you .

Yes, it's in rough form, and it needs cleaning up in some areas. Plus I'm gonna color it! What I really want is your feedback!! Should it be in color? Should I just make the lineart 1 color besides black? Should I put something on the back like "Tony's House 2005"?

One more thing - I'll be putting in some text that reads across the top and bottom banners. Top: CANON WILL NEVER, Bottom: SINK OUR SHIPS. Thanks everyone who made suggestions!

I love ALL of these things!!! This is the best design *ever*! No, really!!! (You can tell by my abundant use of exclamation points!)

Definitely color, but which depends on the color of the shirt, and of cost (Well, I'd be happy to pay more for extra color, but I can't speak for everyone). I'd be fine leaving it up to you, since you obviously have an eye for that sort of thing.

Should I put something on the back like "Tony's House 2005"?

I had pictured that on the front, actually, with the graphic on the back. However, either way is fine but I'd like to have his whole name, like "Tony Toledo House, 2005". Or, do you think we should fit in TWH somewhere? Maybe have "Tony Toledo House" in large letters, with "The Witching Hour 2005" in smaller letters underneath?

"Canon will never sink our ships" is perfect!

I honestly love this design, good work!

I love the design as well. It makes me want to dress like a witch pirate at the convention! It also makes me go squee. Both are good marks in my book.

I would prefer the design to be on the front instead of the back. But the nice thing about cafe press is you can mix it up a bit and sell both styles if we can't agree. I also like the design without the saying (Canon will never sink our ships). I think it would be kind of neat for the ribbons to read instead "Tony Toledo's House" and "The Witching Hour 2005."

But those are just my two knuts.

Oh yeah, and I think it looks great now without the color, but I might say it looks even better with color after I see it colored. That kind of depends on how it's done.

I also like the idea of that being on the back. Maybe you could just do something small in the pocket area on the front.

Great job!

You used my canon line! Squee!

I lurve the design - very fun! If it's on the front of the shirt, it would be nice to put "Tony's House, the Witching Hour, Salem, 2005" underneath the graphic. If the design goes to the back of the shirt, then the same text could be put on the upper left of the front. (You know - where the pocket would go. If there were a pocket. On the shirt. Anyway...)

It is very fabulous and you rock my face off for doing this!

We are so going to be the envy of the other 3 houses! I totally love the comment on the banners. Are they going to be a little bit more decorative in writing or are they goint to remain block print? Other than that I would love to see this in color. I can't wait to wear this shirt in Salem. Is it going to be short or long sleeves cause I'm a southern gal that won't be able to handle short sleeves in Salem in October.

Wow, that's excellent!

Since I have long hair, I'd prefer the design on the front.

How about on the top banner you put "Tony Toledo's House" and on the bottom banner "Witching Hour 2005"? Then on the back have "canon will never sink our ships". Although I do like the saying on the banners. I think it should say "Tony Toledo's House" and "Witching Hour 2005" somewhere on the shirt though.

I really like it as lineart, I think it will transfer well to a t-shirt. Especially a black shirt with white art. ;)

I can't believe I missed this post. I suck. It looks great! If you leave it B&W or colour it, either way I want! I love the canon will never sink our ships thing as well, because, you know. Hehe. Let us know when they're up at your cafepress store! :D

I already voiced my opinion, but allysonsedai's post reminded me of this. Although I like the saying "Canon will never sink our ships," I don't think we should have it on our house shirt. Reason being, while I would guess the majority of fans who will be at this convention ship (and will loudly voice their opinions thus so), there are also those who stick to just the canon. And since this is to represent our entire house, it seems only fair to not make a fanficy like slogan.
