If you don't know who Joss Whedon is and you consider yourself a nerd, you're doing it wrong. This is a man that has touch so many wonderful amazing things in pop-culture. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and more recently the Avengers. He was even one of the writers of the original Toy Story! Do your nerd homework and consume all of the the things he has touched.
In conjunction with the release of Whedon's version of Much Ado About Nothing, West Hampton Free Library had an entire weeks worth of Whedon based programing! Some of the programs which included a retrospective of his work and Shakespeare and Shwarma.
I was called in to help with Wednesday's program, Dr. Horrible and T-shirt making. The idea was that while we are viewing Dr. Horrible, program goers will get to make their very own t-shirt featuring something from the Whedon-verse! I put my trusty silhouette machine to work and made some great stencils featuring some great Whedon characters. I used my trusty old freezer paper stencil technique. Here are the stencils patrons got to choose from.
I set up an assembly line type station. It came out looking pretty cool. The shirts came out pretty great, however some of the paint bled a little bit, so that was a bummer. I used this t-shirt paint spray for the first (and probably last) time.
