The design your own crazy-ass gi CHALLENGE!

So I was chilling on the PC the other day going over random ideas with my blogger pal Liam (of the Part Time Grappler fame). We were both agreeing about how cool all the What Body Animal Type Are You? drawings were when it hit us, like a tsunami, only less wet - why not get people to design their own flipping crazy-ass fantasy BJJ gi? We both simultaneously got so excited our PCs exploded. I immediately drew my design on the most expensive bit of notepad I could find:

My crazy-ass design, what's yours?

So I issue this challenge to you - dear reader, dear blogger, dear gi addict. Draw me a crazy-ass gi, send it to my email address (seymouryang gmail) and if you are a blogger - post your idea up online too. Let's make this the craziest collaborative social media experiment in a BJJ gi context...EVER!

There will be prizes, I promise!

Oh, and here's a gi design template if you want to use one. Just print it out, or colour it in using MS Paint, Photoshop or absolutely ANY method of design you like. Heck ignore it if you want and draw your own made up gi I don't care. Snap it on your mobile, scan it in, photocopy it....whatever. Just get me that crazy gi design. Do it! (pretty please).

I look forward to your ideas people!

Good God people, what have I unleashed!!!!

SkinnyD said...

So it begins! But when does it end? Is there a cutoff date?

Meerkatsu said...

Not sure really, I was gonna play it by ear. you can tell I'm a great organisor LOL!!

I reckon 4-5 weeks - depends on the response. I think after the rush of today, there will be a lull, but will pick up again once we hit the forums and BJJ news media.

Check out the FB page, search for:
'Design your own Crazy-ass bjj gi'

You can see all the designs so far.
