Wanted you to see my friend Dory's successful gi dyeing... there's some strutting around in Florida now! (and note... wow, my 600th post.)
He chose jet black and Chinese red. First try, didn't double the dye amount as the Dharma chart suggests. Then he redyed with the full amount. Looks great, doesn't it?
I think they look great either way frankly.
Then he mentioned his little girl wanting a purple gi, but having a hard time finding 00 or 000 size gis.
Well, here's my solution. For little people, or big people, gis in pink and purple, I can't say enough good things about Mark at Badgerland Jiu Jitsu. Yeah, he's a sponsor, so take it with a grain of salt if you want to be cynical :)
Look at his adorable little girls... Budgie (in pink) is kicking butt and taking names in wrestling these days! He has pink and purple gis in sizes small enough for your tyke, all the way up to NFL linebacker size. That's where I got my pink, my purple, and my green gis.
I am still hoping to dip-dye a gi so I get some color gradation. Just need to make time. Probably after Mundials.
Strikeforce tonight (free! on CBS!) has a great jiu jitsu card, you know... Roger! Jacare! and Shaolin! Woooo!
