DIY Eclipse T-shirt

We are going to get moon yall! 

People are really getting rawled up about the total eclipse that will take place on August 21st. Everywhere I go everyone is talking about it. Businesses are offering special foods and drinks this day. Krispy Kreme is pulling out a chocolate glazed doughnut for the occasion. Somebody stop me!

The path goes straight to the South Carolina coast. Hotels are already booked up and extra security is in place for the crowd that suppose to be pouring in. They have plans to direct traffic. They say its going to be crazy.

I don't have any glasses, but I did make me a cool shirt to wear this day. It has a simple look and was easy to make. 



I took an old t-shirt and some white acrylic paint. 
I painted the edge of an old plastic bowl and stamped it in the center of the shirt. I then used a paper towel and sort of smeared it to give it a glowing look. 



The last solar eclipse was in 1979. I was ten. I remember being in school and the teachers took us outside. I didn't understand what the fuss was all about and I was not interested in looking at it on a piece of paper through a pin dot on a piece of cardboard. 

Well they say from where I live, we will see 95% coverage. But, We can't look at it without special glasses. Hmmm I wonder how hard it would be to get a pair? I'm sure the stores have a markup on them. 

The next total eclipse in view from here will be May 11, 2078.

What are your speculations or plans for the total eclipse? 

Meanwhile, I wonder where I put those moon pies.

  3. You are too cool. I like that, I can do it. I even have the black T-shirt! THANKS!

    In my nearly 80 years I have never seen an eclipse. Either rain, clouds or 'not in the right place.' Maybe this year!

    1. I can only eat a moon pie if its microwaved. The breaded part gets soft, the middle gets gooey and the chocolate melts. Soooo good.
