Boyfriend and I made plans for our first trip in a while, so I decided this required at least one forged bow tie. I tried out a couple different designs and themes but settled on a Pokemon bow tie.
My first design was going to have fabric around the center and actually go around his neck, but I ended up going with the pokeball-knot and used a magnetic clasp to hold it in place instead. The third design got too crowded, so the middle tie won out.
The dramatic pose and lighting were completely on accident. He just go distracted mid-photo.
Bonus: Gundam Wing Bow Tie Prototype
I originally wanted to make a Gundam bow tie, and I basically have the design down. It just happens to be about twice the size of a normal bow tie at the moment, and I ran out of time to redo this one.
