What is a Brony?

It is a guy that knows that watching a girly TV show is uncool. Yet, geek out on My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. Why be like everybody else?

For Bronies Who Are 20% cooler

I made this t shirt for my son who is a proud Brony. But If you have a My Little Pony fan in your family she would enjoy this too.

I used what I had on hand, acrylic paint, and a paper stencil. The Acrylic paint I think is just as good a fabric paint my son has been wearing his shirt and it is holding up well. The paper stencil did it's job, but the paint did bleed. To fix it, I used a black permanent marker. Regardless I think the tee shirt turned out great and my son loves it.

This is a large stencil, that is printed on two pieces of paper. The tee shirt is a man's small.





Perhaps we haven't met. I'm Discord, spirit of chaos and disharmony. Hello? ~ Discord
