It seems like every time I volunteer at an event where I’m required to wear a Tshirt for said event, I always get stuck with a tee that’s a good 5 sizes larger than the one I requested. :/ This includes today, when I showed up at The World Beer Festival.
It looks like Erin snagged the last medium tee. They didn’t even have smalls. :/
She’s a smug little thing, isn’t she? :)
Luckily, I anticipated my bad luck, and came armed!
Gigantic tee, you have met your match!
I cut each of the sleeves of my tee into strips, like so:
By this time, Erin was looking realllly concerned. :)
I stretched out all of the strips, and tied them in front of me.
Tie it nice & snug!
I turned the whole thing around, and was ready to volunteer in style! :D
Ta Daaaaah! :)
I could have totally worn this as a dress, but stuck with my jeans to keep my legs warm in the colder areas of the Columbia Convention Center.
Muuuuch better than a tent-like tee! :)
And here’s what it looks like from the back!
Pretty neat, eh? :)
I had a blast helping out by lugging bags of ice, emptying buckets, and grabbing whatever the vendors needed.
Dan…the man behind the Brew Crew! :)
Of course one of the perks of providing free labor was that I got to sample plenty of tasty brew! :)
Booze and friends…a winning combination! :D
I have to admit that this refashion worked perhaps a little too well. When I went up to a few vendors and asked “Are you guys doing okay? Do you need anything?”, a couple of them didn’t realize I was a volunteer, and looked at me like I was nuts! They must have thought I was just a very concerned attendee! :D
