HULK PAINT

On Saturday, I was stood up for a date by my supposed boyfriend. I waited and waited and waited for him to show up at my place, and he wouldn’t have ever even bothered to let me know he wasn’t coming. The only way I found out that he’d ditched me to have dinner with some other chick was because they both posted pictures of THEIR get together on the internet (GEE, IT’S NOT LIKE I EVER CHECK THE INTERNET OR ANYTHING), and full of rage and booze, I ended up painting my shower curtain, which I’d intended to do for some time, anyway.

Before:

It’s pirate-y and pleases me enough so that I don’t feel like I have to shake someone down in the street for the money to buy this insanely overpriced shower curtain. At least, for a while.

I actually haven’t posted any pictures of the pirate bathroom since I moved into this place a year ago, it’s quite different from the last place as I have MUCH less counter space here. So, here’s a quick photo-tour.

Eventually I intend to have changeable phrases for the poster so that guests can switch things up as they like–I’ll get around to it at some point.

    Awesome.

    I really love the “Blackbeard Tampons” picture too, that rocks!

    I *HEART* your PIRATE BATHROOM!!!

    Now you just need to do a rock video in the bathroom (or not) and THAT is what needs to be done. GO OVER THE TOP. Though I doubt much can top that shower curtain. I wasn’t sure what to expect in the AFTER pic but seriously? Holy crap cakes – YUMMY PIRATE SHOWER CURTAIN!

      Re: I *HEART* your PIRATE BATHROOM!!!

      hahahaha I don’t know how many people could fit in my bathroom for a rock video!

    Every time I think “Man, that lady is amazing” you do something like this and ratchet yourself up another few notches. I want to be more like you.

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 5:55 am

      That’s quite a compliment, thank you!

  9. admin August 10, 2010 at 5:48 am

    I haven’t forgotten them, I promise, I’ve just been so busy!

  10. admin August 10, 2010 at 5:55 am

    Probably, that way each one can be appreciated individually. I just hope that people don’t get sick of seeing them before I finish them all!

    I totally saw that octopus shower curtain the other day and thought of you! You’re right, it is ridiculously overpriced.

    Yours, however, is FABBO! Did you do any tracing or overhead projecting, or did you just freehand that bad boy? Doesn’t really matter, it’s FABBO! Go, you!

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:18 pm

      I don’t understand what exactly makes a shower curtain cost one hundred dollars. Is it hand-woven by debutantes?

      I just freehanded it but an overhead projector would have come in handy. Thanks! πŸ™‚

      1. mschilepepper August 10, 2010 at 6:55 pm

        Hand-woven by *virgin* debutantes, of the finest unicorn hair by the light of the blue moon in a leap year, apparently. Egad, even if the durn thing were 100% silk, it shouldn’t cost THAT much.

        I could see a LOT of uses for an overhead projector. Maybe I’ll price ’em out.

        1. admin August 10, 2010 at 6:57 pm

          I just can’t imagine I’d use one often enough to justify the amount of storage space it would take, unfortunately.

          1. mschilepepper August 10, 2010 at 7:16 pm

            I’d let ya borrow mine if I buy one. Looks like there are some really good deals on portable, very compact ones on eBay. Hmmm …

          2. mschilepepper August 10, 2010 at 10:55 pm

            Oh, and speaking of your changeable phrases idea for the Johnny poster: I have a chunk of foamcore you can have, and some sticky-back Velcro, too.

          3. admin August 10, 2010 at 11:25 pm

            Awesome, I will take you up on that!

  12. faerieburst August 10, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Damn girl, I had no idea you could free hand that well. Kudos!!

  13. katura August 10, 2010 at 9:14 am

    OMG did you paint that freehand? That is totally awesome.

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:11 pm

      Yup! And thank you. πŸ™‚

    I came over from ‘s journal and I agree with him about the awesomeness. I also your appreciate your adoration of robots. I am equally obsessed with them to the point that my one and only tattoo is a robot. Mind if I add you?

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:07 pm

      I don’t mind! πŸ™‚

    BLACKBEARD TAMPONS? WHERE DO I GET THEM

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:59 pm

      I dunno that there’s an actual blackbeard tampon product that can be purchased, but the print can be obtained from Ursula Vernon.

  19. 1_rhiannon_1 August 10, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    This may be the most friggin’ awesome bathroom I’ve ever seen! Arrr!

    Hi. I’m moving into your shower. Please deliver yourself and johnny depp daily.

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 8:11 pm

      Hahaha if I could deliver Johnny Depp I don’t know that I would ever leave the apartment!

  22. weaselmom August 10, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Jesus Humpty Christ, that shower curtain is the most glorious object these rheumy old eyes have seen in a long time. I had no idea you were such a stellar artist. In a just and righteous world, you’d be able to convert your skills into fat sacks of cash.

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 9:38 pm

      Sadly, fat sacks of cash do not appear to be in my future, but at least my apartment is a little more fabulous in the meanwhile. πŸ™‚

  23. technophobe1975 August 10, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    That curtain is now a work of art!

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 11:24 pm

      Thank you!

  24. puffdoggydaddy August 10, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Ahhhh!!! There’s a decapitated pirate’s head watching me go to the bathroom.

    πŸ™‚

    Awesome theme.

    Do you have a second bathroom?

    Do it in ninjas and send us pictures. πŸ™‚

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:08 pm

      Sadly, I have only one bathroom. πŸ™

      1. puffdoggydaddy August 10, 2010 at 4:12 pm

        Bummer.

        The pirate bathroom turned out awesome.

  25. mithoviel August 10, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Woah. Nice!

    1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:08 pm

        I’ve added you to my FL, btw. Me thinks ye’ve gots th’scurvy.

        1. admin August 10, 2010 at 4:57 pm

          I’ve added you back. It’s true, I don’t eat enough citrus. πŸ™

  26. thecostumegal August 11, 2010 at 5:16 am

    I wouldn’t want to pee in that bathroom because it is so awesome.
