World of WarCrafts returns to WoW Insider with a broadened focus to spotlight art and creativity by WoW players and fans, including fan art, cooking, comics, cosplay, music, fan fiction – and yes, (War)crafts. Share your creativity: tip us off via the tips line (attention: World of WarCrafts).
Fans of Sugarrat's WoW Bleach Shirt didn't waste a moment after last week's feature to get working on their own creations. We begin this week's World of WarCrafts with another version of the bleach shirt from reader Andy (Zorren of Auchindoun-EU). "I made basically negative versions compared to hers, as the bleach isn't the outline – it's the fill," he wrote. "I based them on spray-paint stencils but had fun bleaching the designs ... and my pants ... and the tablecloth ..."
... and apparently, a hip flask for his friend Criterous of Auchindoun-EU, too. "Similar method to Sugarrat's, except I cut the design from sticker paper and spray painted over it," he noted. It appears to have played a major part in a happy birthday celebration, from the look of things -- check out the photo of a happy Criterous at the very end of this article.
Another bleach shirt, plus a handmade racial necklace (and Criterous' happy day), after the break.
A final bleach shirt comes from Becky (Lynnora from <Happy Dragon Tea Palace> on Scarshield Legion-EU). "I love this idea!" she commented on last week's post. "If I can figure out how to draw the Horde insignia, I'm going to make this too. Nice & creative!!"
It obviously didn't take her long to figure out her methodology, because she was back with pictures not four hours later: "Here is my version; just made it. :) Actually, I used the plastic adhesive you can put on your windows to prevent people looking in to apply on the shirt. It held pretty good."
We think it's looking pretty good, too!
Before we wrap up this week, we have a little more eye candy to feed your creative spirit. "The last time WoW Insider featured jewelry, I felt scooped by the guy's gorgeous work and almost decided not to share my Draenei pendant once it was completed," writes Cynthia (Rosoe of <Betrayal> on Ysera-US). "But now that I'm done with it, I think it's a completely different style from previously featured jewelry, so I figured I'd share after all.
"It's a completely handmade (no molds) pendant of the Draenei racial shield. The pendant is about 1.25" in diameter, made of sterling silver, brass and four 3mm pink tourmalines; the cord is faux leather. I've been making jewelry for about a year, although this pendant was the first time I've made a pendant, set stones or worked in mixed metals -- so it was something of a learning experience. :) I work primarily in sterling silver and have a little home studio on a workbench out on my porch."
Looks like that bench may deserve an upgrade soon, if her work continues to look this sweet.
